Jafar is by far the worst casting choice. He looks like a male model reject who just woke up in need of manscaping, and he sounds like a sissy. He has the menacing presence of a plain baked potato.

what? along with Naomi Scott he did the greatest acting job of all in this (especially the scene in the desert where he first talks with Aladdin)
what did you want? some deep voiced, over the top villain? hahahaha I am evil, look at me I am evil, while 'secretly' playing the trusted 2nd to the Sultan?

Jasmine and Jafar were the two acting standouts (although the rest all did fine or better)


Quote:
Side note, two things.... Jasmine at one point beat boxes... dafuq?
huh? that was a fun credits scene
(and not like they were not mixing styles and genres across the ages in the actual film anyway, I mean the Genie was rapping)

Quote:
And how does wishing to be "the most powerful being in the universe" suddenly make you a genie??
why not? the Genie was already the most powerful, so why can't he just make him into an even more powerful Genie? he didn't ask to be anything specific

really like this

Aladdin and Jafar were cute. Genie wasn't bad; Smith was actually pretty good. But, I still don't see the point of any of it. 2.5/5

Edit: And, Jasmine...

This felt way longer than it needed to be. Overall wasn't impressed by this one.

Did not like this movie at all. Through out the whole movie I was like, why am I not watching the original instead? This shit feels half assed. It also doesn't help that some moments are very woke. The only positive thing I can say about this is Will Smith, ironically. But yeah, I don't need to see this again. I'll just stick to the original.

While I kind of liked it, yes, Will Smith easily stole the show. Without him, it'll be a low 3/5 at best.

These remakes just exist to make you want to watch the superior originals instead, lol.

I liked the first half an hour and that's it. Once Will Smith's Genie was introduced, I was ready to turn it off. I thought he was beyond annoying when he and Aladdin were in the cave. I turned down the volume because he was getting on my nerves so much. Once the Genie was in his human form I liked him and thought it was an okay performance.

The movie felt way too long. The last act felt all over the place and bloated. Its weird because I thought that the extra run time worked in Lion King's favor but for Aladdin it did the opposite imo. I love Naomi Scott as Jasmine but I still threw this one in the pile of Blu-rays to sell. Maybe a rewatch will change my opinion but this was rough to sit through. 2.5/5 stars or maybe a 3/5.

Well, for the heck of it, I'm watching it. I am getting an Asylum feel from the title card though. (It's not even the same logo as on the poster)

Aladdin is still my favorite of all the Disney live-action remakes. The Lion King is the worst (even though not really qualify as live-action but it's still a remake).

Well, TIL that the voice for Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop ,Kaji from Evangelion, and the Japanese voice for Lugia provided the voice for Genie in the Japanese dub of this!

I give the movie credit for trying not to be beat by beat of the original. Still, that doesn't make it good. Also the cinematography and production values sucked ass. It felt like I was watching a stage play or a Bollywood film. It doesn't have that grit of the original at all.

It sucks because I wanted to like this movie. Aladdin and Lion King are my two favorite Disney animated films.

Well, I just finished it and it was pretty bad. Looked cheap, had a terrible script, an awful Jafar, and a bastardization of the One Step Ahead and A Whole New World sequences. The actors did a good job though, the songs were decently done, and the handmaiden Dalia was great.

P.S. Naomi Scott is a beautiful woman. (also, who the hell thought that removing the giant snake was a good idea?!)

Same here. Aren't they pretty much a joke nowadays?

The song itself is actually decent, with excellent vocals from Naomi Scott.

The usage in the film, however.....yikes.

I'm not saying it's a bad song, it's just so damn distracting. I didn't even think about the PC issues in the original until this damn movie. Disney, you're the one with the agenda, not me. But whatever, it's a tolerable song.
