    Disney should stop making live action movies. They are milking classic films.

    I thought Jafars first henchmen might've been Abis Mal.

    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.

    I love that this was rated to be a good time if you're drunk when I wound up turning this movie into a drinking game in order to watch it.

    One of the worst movies I have ever seen. Drink a lot and smoke a few blunts, it won't make the movie better but you may pass out and miss most of the awfulness.

    I agree 100% critique on point. I had high hopes and wanted to attach to this movie because I’m a Disney princess myself but I have to succumb to that this was just a very sub par execution.

    Had some funny moments but it was really rushed. Some of the dialogue didn’t exactly land especially the hand maid’s, she was kind of weird with the genie lol

    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

    whaT? he didn't mention the fact that they changed Jasmine story and personality into a feminist. lol

    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.

  • Markallen Garcia

    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.

    I liked Aladdin 2019 and will smith was good as the genie 🧞‍♂️🧞‍♀️ but 1992 was a little better 👌

    1. The visuals are very beautiful to look at.
    1. The musical sequence felt dull and slow (Though I will commend the
    faithfulness of Mena Massoud's and Naomi Scott's singing voice to the
    original 1997 Aladdin, especially Massoud's)
    2. Jaafar looks like a total wimp when compared to the (obviously) evil,
    menacing and charismatic cartoon Jaafar.
    3. A lot of character building scenes from the original were trimmed in
    the remake and was replaced with a bunch of unnecessary newly written
    scenes which added an extra (stretched) 30-minutes of boring filler to
    the movie.

    They tried to develop Jasmine to a bit deeper but don't give a shit about Aladdin's character. He's less developed in the live-action than the animation. Should've given him a backstory or dug into his past more. Also, Jaraffar is just garbage casting.

    Just watched it yesterday, I did enjoy the added gravitas they have to Jasmine. Instead of being a princess looking for a prince she's actually someone with motivations to lead her people. Will Smith's Genie is fun in some scenes, his romantic comedy and reaction scenes were good. I also liked the new Dalia character.
    What I didn't like was the poor rendition of Jafar (didn't feel like a threat), lack of certain elements from the original (Genie's transformations and reactions, as pointed out, the cave, a well rounded Iago, the hourglass). It would have been better if they went for a darker colour tone as well, to match that mysterious Arabian vibe of the original. This one had the colours of a Disney channel tv show.

    At least critics and fans online have forced the movie makers to not white wash all of characters.
    They did do everything possible to hide religion. When its clear that Arabian Nights is from Muslim Iraq times.
    Probably no one knows this but FYI
    Jaffar marriage was shown as Christian marriage
    In Islamic marriage the lady is asked first for her consent and she signs the marriage contract.
    But here it was shown wrong when Jaffar was asked first.
    But rest is all fine at least the animated song blunder did not happen. LOL
    So no complains. I enjoyed it can't believe it.

    I only know Jasmine sings like Queen Elsa, and Jafar's pet is like Soundwave's Laserbeak.

    I just checked a stupid 2014 movie Neighbours that gave me headache , had 72% score on rotten tomatoes but Aladdin 2019 had 57%

    This movie was so much better than the critics made it look... I didn't go to cenima to watch it when it was released , but few days ago my cousins really insisted and I watched it... I was surprised how enjoyable was it , it wasn't perfect at all , but I had good time with it.. it didn't deserve the hate it got. Rare occasion where I respectfully disagree from jeremy here

    Awful movie man, really bad. I was willing to give it a chance, even tried to like Smith... But with no success, it's just too bad and with no "soul" whatsoever. A product, nothing more, and a very cheap looking product.

    Man for some reason it hit me.... think it was because of Robin Williams..... Just the memory of him made me misty eyed on every scene that reminded me of him and how he ended so badly. But oh how it could have been so much worse... Star Wars sequels... Never watched a movie that made me so sad and so happy at the same time but for different reasons. RIP Robin Williams

    Iago here is basically Season 8 jon snow.
    Iago: Yes muh Master.
    Jon: Muh queen
    Jafar was the worst in the movie.
    Will smith was the best. Noone could replace RW as Geenie.
    But WS did a pretty good job nonetheless . i was only entertained when he was on screen. and when Jafar was on screen my eyes rolled up with cringe. is this guy having a conversation or having monologue ?

    They turned a fantasy cartoon into a movie with humans who are extremely limited in comparison.
    I was always waiting for it to be Aladdin and it turned into something that was not recognized.
