Yesterday was the day!
With my husband, daughter and nephew in tow, I headed over for a unique experience at Northpark Center – an iconic mall in the heart of Dallas! An iconic mall was the ideal setting for a one of a kind movie watching experience at AMC Theatres…….watching THE JUNGLE BOOK in Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime!
What? That doesn’t sound like anything you’ve heard of before? Oh well, listen up, because this is something you will not want to miss and I knew it was the perfect location to prepare for THE JUNGLE BOOK review, as part of this sponsored post!
Seats that pulsate to the action!
Reclining Seats and more!
If you have one in your backyard, you’ll want to head there as soon as possible. If not, check out the locations I have listed as you might be near one when you travel this summer – it would be a great summertime activity!
We arrived at the theatre and I’ll admit I had a big concern.
A really big concern.
I spotted the reclining movie seats right away.
In my mind I envisioned relaxing in my theatre seat, reclining back, feet up (yes – just like your favorite recliner at home), lights go dark and……..well, I was worried I’d be so comfortable I might fall asleep.
Ah, but I needn’t fear. Disney’s THE JUNGLE BOOK Live Action movie was so intense and filled with adventure, that I couldn’t have fallen asleep! Whew!
That said, the chairs were incredible. Reclining is the only way to enjoy a movie – I’m forever spoiled! Because of that, I’m going to be paying attention to the schedule at AMC Northpark, because there is only one theatre in Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime. (And a heads up, Disney’s THE Jungle Book will only be playing in it for 1 week – so go ASAP)
With buttered popcorn in hand (you do this too, right?), in reclining position, I watched as Disney’s THE JUNGLE BOOK began to unfold.
The theatre experience in Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime had certain sound and visual technology to make it extra special. BUT……on top of that, Disney’s use of CGI animation was on a scale I hadn’t seen before. The technology keeps advancing.
The first thing I noticed – Photorealistic CGI animals! With a movie film like THE JUNGLE BOOK, animals are literally everywhere, in every scene. And those might look like real animals, but they certainly are not. Good thing, as I’d hate to imagine Mowgli being wrapped in Kaa’s coil! Thank goodness that snake is only one scene – I could breathe again! Ha!
From the animals we’ve all grown to love like Baloo to the smallest of jungle animals, a frog who delicately wiped raindrops off its’ face, the animated technology was astounding.
But I quickly had another concern.
With seats that pulsate to the movie action, would the seat “jump” the same times that we “jumped” or were in the middle of an intense interaction? After all, I didn’t need my 8-year old freaking out. Or dare I say, her mama?
Never fear. They carefully chose what scenes really let you experience the pulsating seats, and they weren’t scary scenes at all. Two scenes really stand out. The first was a scene where there was a stampede of animals. This was incredible as you could faintly hear and feel the stampede before you could see it. INCREDIBLE. The second was a scene in which ruins came tumbling down in the midst of the jungle.
This changed the way a movie is experienced forever!
Those of you who fell in love with Disney’s original animated film will no doubt love this adaptation. There’s more depth. Friendships are deeper. Bad guys are really bad guys (Shere Khan and King Louie, I’m talking about you). Family is everything. And there is more to the story – no spoilers here!
I keep getting asked, “Is it scary?”. Intense is the word I’d use. There are a couple animal fight scenes. Would I have taken my daughter when she was 2 or 3? Probably not, but my 8 year old enjoyed this film immensely. I’ll admit she teared up at the loss of a character, though that loss was not seen on screen. But hey, mama tears up at those as well. Loss is a part of life, and having lost many I love (much too soon), I know these exposures will help her navigate life.
I’m excited to watch Disney as they navigate this newly chartered course of live action remakes. It brings some of my favorite Disney movies to life in a whole new way.
And thanks to Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime – it’s even better!
Just imagine watching these scenes from THE JUNGLE BOOK with recliners that pulsate to the action……….
