Aladdin - Movie Review

    I loved it. The cartoon had some aspects I liked better and this one had some aspects I liked better. This one did really well with worldbuilding, I thought this new Jaffar felt like he had more character and intrigue besides being a comic book villain. The cartoon felt grander in scale-at least during the action sequences and genie magic.

    If the original Aladdin didn’t exist and it was only this one, do you think this movie would have been better.

    I loved this movie! I thought all the actors full of emotions and amazing, the movie adds extra to make the relationships more meaningful and Will smith did his own thing and he was so funny. It was a interptation of the cartoon and they did awesome.

    One of the biggest upsets for me was in the song "Prince Ali" In the Animation when the elephant bust through the door the build up of the song was great. In the live action they stop and when it starts up again there was no power behind it.

    I just saw the movie a few days ago and I feel like for the disney re-live action film, they focus more on the supporting characters than the main character like timon and pumba in the lion king. The film was ehhh... to me. The acting sounded so monotone (or they didnt put much energy to the acting) and the editing was bad, like they need to go back to film school. No beats. I only enjoyed mostly genies part cause aladdin was dull.

    This movie was a heartless CASH GRAB! They need to cut it with the remakes, even though I know they won't because it makes MONEY. Cause that's all Disney cares about nowadays. Not creativity or imagination, but getting the most money with the least amount of effort.

    Damn...that scene in the animation when the first guy goes into the cave of wonders sets the tone also establishes some pretty serious stakes for a kid’s animation and there’s this real menace & looming danger beneath the dazzling musical numbers and the charm of the genie. I feel like that choice is really telling as to the general trend w/ all these remakes- they look at a scene like that and see it as an easy place to trim some fat & make room for some updates to the text...but they don’t understand the heart of the story and sacrifice the most in terms of tone & atmosphere...which is really the one place where it’s most important to create a sense of unity & continuity w/ the original. You can make major & minor changes to plot beats, explore different themes, introduce new characters etc. and if you hit the mark in terms of replicating tone or creating tonal notes that feel like they arise organically from the original...that’s how you win fans over because they’re going to FEEL like they’re returning to a world that they love. That’s a huge reason why the new Star Wars sequels are so much better received than the prequels

    nonsense reviews... the movie is great. more details to the characters like jafar and jasmine, they has clear objective. more empowering specially jasmine, more screen time to.

    Poor acting (or directing of actors) - aside from Smith, naturally - in part due to poorly written dialogue. Awful, out-of-place, unmemorable song writing (other than "A Whole New World). Miscast....everyone, other than Smith and the monkey. Typical, modern-film, shit sandwich; great visual effects wrapped around mushy feces.

    I rewatched the “Never had a friend like Me” & “Prince Ali” sequences several times. I laughed along, rooted for the heroes & heroines, fell in love & cried tears of joy at the end! Wonderful LIVE ACTION remake & thought Guy Ritchie was perfect. As for the original & Robin Williams, they cannot be outdone; true perfection! So it’s a different take. Just as Heath & Joaquin had different but amazing takes on the joker!

    Every movie reviewer I have watched did not like Aladdin that much. Maybe because we who aren't reviewers are just sitting back and enjoying the movie rather than thinking too much about every single thing. I honestly thought they did a perfect job bringing the animation to a fantasized reality. Jaafar could've been darker in demeanor but everything else was satisfying. Still great review. You're so funny.

    It was entertaining from beginning to end. Will Smith pulled off the Genie role even though I really thought he was going to 💣. I didnt appreciate them changing the story at the end but it was fun to watch. I was never bored and the special effects were pretty damn good. I say smoke a joint and watch it 😎👍

    I didn't like this remake, I tried, but I felt like they shifted the plot in random places, the characters didn't draw you in, will smith was the better of characters though. The music was flat, they took the amazing film score it is and turned it into bland pop music. The song Jasmine sang in the end sounded like it was recycling Frozen's song Let It Go (especially the choreography). Anyways, it was disappointing. Can't top the original.

    Wait a minute there was a sequel to Aladdin called Return of Jafar? How did I not know this? Also I mostly agree with you although I thought the dancing was pretty meh but I didn't mind the fast dancing it certainly is different.

    I had the same thoughts mate. Also I thought the backgrounds should have been a bit more washed out so the bright costumes could really pop off the screen but it all kind of just blended in.

    Another thing was Jasmine in the animation I felt was much more clever, like the pole vault from one building to the next was her idea and they took that out!!! If these films nowadays go for strong women, why take that away from her?

    Yea I just watched this movie and didn't really like it. There was no emotional impact. There were certain scenes in the animation film, like when Jasmines hand almost got chopped off, that were so intense. But in this movie it was so quick that you couldn't really absorb it. I didn't like what they did with Abu or Iago ( which was nothing) and Jafar just didn't have the same presense. I did like the Genie but thought Will Smith's singing was very weak.

    this film is generally good, i liked the trailer, and it indeed may be a good companion to the animated version jafar is the only thing in the film at least for me that i was kinda iffy about, he kinda seemed a little less menacing than his animated equivelant, and More like a jerk uncle mena massoud and naomi scott seem to have terrific chemistry, in the same manner how linda larkin and scott weigner did in the animated version so i would say it is Purchase worthy with the animated version, but i do agree with your opinion that this film would be fun if you do or Don't have to be drunk

    I agree it felt rushed. Will Smith made the movie for me. The actor who plays Aladdin was cringy throughout in my opinion and his acting was questionable. How did Jasmine, being a strong intelligent woman who strives to be Sultan, not know that you need to pay with money in the beginning? She must surely know how society works and the consequences of stealing. The chemistry between Aladdin and Jasmine felt off. In my opinion the animated movie is better in almost every way.

    I’m honestly disappointed in the Aladdin actor i just think he was not the right actor to play alladin. Couldn’t really feel him bringing the character forward. Will smith did a good job on genie though. I still enjoyed the movie and the songs.

  60. Markallen Garcia

    Markallen Garcia5 개월 전

    I highly disliked this remake. The change of Jasmine's character to a glory-seeking diva negatively affected the whole movie. For example, the fact that Jasmine is already mingling on the streets and engaged in foreign politics from the start totally contradicts the iconic "A Whole New World" carpet ride scene and strips it of any soul and purpose. Aladdin had no real convincing reason to like her. The scene becomes just a cute little interlude of deception on Aladdin's part, whereas the original point was to show that Aladdin is a bold adventurer with a good heart whether he's a prince or a lowly street guy.
