The newest Disney Live Action remake is a classic of the 90's. Here's my review for ALADDIN!

  • I liked The Return of Jafar more than original. Sue me.

  • Honestly my only gripe this movie is: Jafar - He did not capture the ambition or power of Jafar. Not completely horrible but definitely the weakest part of the movie. They did use Jasmine a bit too much but I did not mind the change too much.

  • That: 'Only 1 may enter here,' bit of the video made me smirk for the first time in weeks. (Something tells me he hasn't heard of the Mondasian Cybermen!)

  • Will Smith won’t come close to matching the raw unrestrained comedy talent of Robin Williams as the Genie

  • In terms of CGI, I realized that NOTHING will ever top Jurassic Park.

  • To me the problem of the movie was indeed Jafar. He just wasnt ‘evil enough’. However it might be because the character of Jafar can only work in a animation/cartoon sense

  • To me the remake was better than the original. They do a lot of the scenes better and I love Jasmine's new song. Also I like that Jafar is less scary in this version because he was the reason I didn't like watching the movie when I was younger. Overall, so far it was my favorite Disney remake and that might be my second favorite once the Mulan remake comes out.

    • You feel the exact opposite that I do.

  • I thought the movie was more the Jasmine Show than Aladdin, i.e. less "the diamond in the rough" and more "I am woman hear me roar".

    • The movie should’ve been called “Jasmine” instead of “Aladdin”

  • Surprisingly it took me a year to watch this as I wasn’t able to back when it was released, I finally was able to watch it on Disney+, so I’ll start with Jafar for me he was less of the gangly and hatred filled character from the 1992 movie and more of a snobbish and ‘yuppie’ interpretation of him, Iago was great but Alan Tudyk was unfortunately under-utilised and since he’s a great actor of both on screen and voice characters (he’s also the weasel from Zootopia and the candy king from wreck it Ralph) he was for some baffling reason never heard much apart from broken English, Mena and Naomi did great as Aladdin and Jasmine but weren’t given much to do apart from ‘recreate a majority of scenes from the original so we can still call it Aladdin’, completely agree about the speechless song it’s good but it’s editorial inclusion in the movie was so jarring it took me temporarily out of the movie, and finally of course we have Will Smith as the Genie who for me was probably the best part, Robin Williams will never ever be replaced but if there’s an actor who can match him in terms of comedy, drama, action and everything in between it’s the fresh prince, so yeah great movie but the original is still the best for me

  • Most reviewers entered the theater wanting to hate this movie, which happens even to me. They were however proved wrong by the strong box office numbers.

  • This movie was okay. But it was seriously lacking in some areas. Jafar and Iago are my favorite characters and they were like paper cutouts in this movie.

  • Your first point is a FACT, I just saw Aladdin for the first time (I'm a huge fan of the original movie ) but the first scene was SO fast, she was already out of the palace and they didn't even explain why she decided to leave, that was the first scene and I literally had to check the timeline because I couldn't believe that I was just in the minute 6. Bad storytelling!

  • I get why people think the original is better but in my opinion it is unfair to compare it to the original because most people are going to like the original no matter what movie and it is hard to please everyone whether they want it to be like the original or something new

  • All they had to do was remaster the animations from the original. They didn't have to make it live action and realistic, just update the graphics so it looks better. That's all they had to do for The Lion King as well. Unfortunately, both live action remakes were disappointing.

  • Jafar’s evilness is lackluster here 😩 I felt like they could’ve found someone more creepier.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • My criticisms and compliments are as listed. You can agree or disagree with them. Criticisms: 1. Lack of character development. I particularly missed seeing the relationship between Jasmine and her father that you see in the animated version. I also would have liked to see more of Genie and Dalia's relationship progress throughout the film. 2. Jafar lacks the amount of intimidation and evilness that the animated Jafar possesses. 3. Each song had a drumbeat, and it took away from the beauty of the orchestra. I'm specifically talking about "Whole New World." 4. The rearranged order of events and the addition and ommition of others. 5. The lack of energy from the actors. Many seemed very unanimated. 6. I was hoping to hear at least one song from the Broadway musical or deleted songs from the animated one, such as "Proud of Your Boy." 7. Jasmine wants to be Sultan. Political correctness overriding historical facts. Compliments: 1. The visuals were stunning! There was so much detail in every scene. 2. The CGI. I couldn't believe how lifelike Rajah and Abu were, especially. 3. The camaraderie between Dalia and Jasmine. That is an addition I enjoyed. 4. The added lyrics to the existing songs. I enjoyed listening to those. 5. "Speechless" was sung incredibly by Naomi. I was impressed there was no pre-recording or autotone for the song. 6. The choreography... Wow. My favorite part of the film was the "Prince Ali" musical number for its energy, vividness and choreography. It was a lot of fun.

  • 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.
