We’re back! Apologies for the small hiatus, listeners. This episode was recorded two weeks ago when Shane, Jason, Terry and Ben review Jon Favreau’s live-action adaptation of The Jungle Book. They also review Kung Fu Panda 3 and discuss just what makes an animated series age well.
With the latest sequel out in cinemas right now, I though we’d take a listen back to our review of how this crazy kung fu adventure all started. Take a trip down memory lane to our review of Kung Fu Panda!

Thanks for listening, fellow addicts! We’ll be serving up some Rewind episodes over the next couple of weeks and after that we’ll be back with a bang with our reviews of The Jungle Book and Kung Fu Panda 3.
From Star Wars and Avatar to Lord of the Rings and Inception, the ability of a filmmaker to create a world we want to frequently revisit is something we all admire, yet rarely discuss. World-building in all forms of entertainment can leave you mesmerised by a setting’s beauty or enamoured by a fictional society’s very existence.
In this new Roundtable episode, Shane, Ben, Terry and Jason discuss the techniques filmmakers use that allow us to fall in love with their worlds as well as some of the shining cinematic examples of films that accomplish that in a spectacular way.

All of that plus, some VS. and Movie, Actor Go!
