@macgenie @MrKapowski I remember seeing the original as a kid in a large screen cinema in Britain that probably doesn't exist anymore. There was a magic in that film that made me come out of the theater making me believe that _I _ could speak with animals...and I continued to believe that even when my attempts were not successful.
Years later I found out that it was made just up the road from where I lived, at least the opening harbour scenes.
This view is probably clouded by the nostalgia of looking back on my youth, but I sometimes wonder if we rely too much on modern CGI, and not enough on good story telling.
Disney's The Jungle Book is the same for me. I didn't think that the remake was bad, but for me nothing will beat the original.
