While feeling devoid of much of the colourful content the classic embodied -- 'Aladdin' (2019) grants audiences some moments of splendor, albeit as brief as they are.
Disney’s attempt at recapturing the whimsical and nostalgic magic of the 1992 classic is not entirely successful, but what it does capture is perhaps a small identity of its own. Despite doubts, there are moments in this remake that work, but not in the ways we expect. Comedy was one of these things. To our surprise much of the comedy didn't come from the comedic relief character of Genie, but from the goofy interactions between the human characters. We often found ourselves laughing more at Princess Jasmine's handmaid than we did at Genie. .
And so, this begs the question that everyone wants to know: Did Will Smith's Genie work? Well, kind of. Simply put, Smith's Genie just wasn't as potent of a comedic relief character as audiences will expect; in fact he isn't much more of a comedic character than Aladdin himself. This wasn't necessarily a bad thing, as it is clear that Smith isn't trying to replicate anything. Sure, he shapeshifts, he jokes around, and he has compassion for Aladdin, but he's in so many ways a different character. Director Guy Ritchie didn't want Smith to comedically compete with the glamorous charm and wit of Robin Williams. Instead, we get a version of Genie that aims at being more of a mentor character, and having more human motivations. In summary, Smith's Genie doesn't hold a candle to Williams, instead he lights a match and tries his own thing, but that doesn't prevent it from subsequently fizzling out.
With the big blue guy out the way, what of Aladdin himself? Well, Mena Massoud hits his comedic beats better than his emotional ones, convincing us that he's neither a street rat nor a prince, he's somewhere in between. 'Aladdin' finds its star power with Naomi Scott’s take on Princess Jasmine, as this remake expands upon her character allowing for Scott’s talent to outshine every other performer. From her singing to her chemistry with Aladdin, Scott does a great job with the romance, unfortunately that chemistry is not reciprocated by Mena Massoud.
No hay que hacer ruido para que los demás sepan que estás trabajando, no hay que impresionar a nadie, llamar la atención, ni mucho menos hacer cosas que no quieres para quedar bien con una persona que quizás ni le importa tú bienestar, concentrate en ti, apuesta a ti y sé tú mejor versión cada día por y para ti. ❤💪😊 .
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ - With the big budget Disney-made Aladdin movie coming out this weekend it's no shock that @theasylumcc has put out their own mockbuster of it, titled Adventures of Aladdin. I'm not usually a big fan of these ones by Asylum, I'm much more partial to the natural disaster, monster movie, and alien invasion type ones that they put out. Having said that, this actually turned out to be, so far, their best film of the year!
The plot follows closely to the classic tale we all know and love, minus a few minor changes (such as Aladdin having a band of close friends that he travels with, which adds a new and unique dynamic to the tale) and different names for some of the characters so as not to infringe on Disney, so there's no surprises there when it comes to the plot or how the story unfolds. However, what did surprise me was just how well everything was done, as far as Asylum productions go. The acting was by far among the best acting I've seen from an Asylum film to date, with quite a few comedic moments and lines of dialogue hitting perfectly. Likewise the low budget CGI also amazed me, looking far better (most of the time) than they have in any previous Asylum production, save for maybe a couple other rare ones.
I really enjoyed this. There is just something about grandpa Clint in its slight variations (because this is not crotchety old bastard Eastwood) that I dig that I never had in prime Eastwood. 4 out of 5 🌟s.
