    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.

          Will Smith was great but his singing not so much 🙃

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

                  I for one thought this was a great. Compared to Lion King disaster.

                    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.

AND IT GOT RID OF THE PRISON SONG! hate they left that part out lol Will smith was cool when he was himself Aladdin was almost there but he didnt have enough swag Jasmine was the standout but they used her to push the sjw narrative "hot jafar" was ayte but why didnt they cast creepy? Abu and Rajah were cool Parrot sucked ass Sultan sucked ass Carpet was cool when getting the lamp but then was noticeably bland This movie is kinda enjoyable if all you care about is the actors so i say like 4/10

Keegan-Michael Key would have been a better choice than Will Smith (who I actually do like) Jasmine and Jaffar were also miscast...dump Iago too. And Abu looked off about as much as Genie...but hey, they did a good job on Carpet I guess. Jokes aside, I liked Aladdin and the Sultan and the Maid, they were cast well. Lastly, why did they include Jasmine's songs? They didn't fit well.

I agree with the Iago thing though, his talking was weird and I felt like it needed to be either significantly more or significantly less. At first hot jafar seemed like a weird choice, but I ended up appreciating how it went against the attractive = redeemable/less evil trope that I see a lot. Especially when he’s forcing Jasmine to marry him and the fact that he’s attractive doesn’t make it any less uncomfortable or gross what’s happening.

For exemple, Jafar staff could moved like a real snake instead of being a flashlight who looked like one. Also, Jafar was not very funny or intimidating. His laugh was weird, he isn't as smart as the one in the original either. He got no motivation, just want to be the Sultan because. That's it? Wow that's lame! The '' big '' fight at the end was horrible, i nearly yawned when i saw it! It's only; avoid the giant parrot monster, tricked Jafar, victory! No huge battle with a giant Snake and fire, Jasmine wasn't in danger she was just floating and not trapped in a sandglass, no tension whatsoever. It was boring honestly U-U The backgrounds and costume are magnificent, can't deny it! Also, the music is gorgeous and the songs are nice; i liked Jasmine's song, it was pretty and poetic :) She really wanted to help her people and save them, seems more responsible then the animated one too. Her father was ok, he didn't do much but cared about his daughter even if the old man was a bit strict and over-protective. The Genie was ok as well, likable and funny; not as much as Robin William of course howhever he's a nice character. I wa shappy that he find a wife and have kids, explore the world with them; it was cute! I won't watch it over and over, one more time will be enough. This movie isn't as aweful as Beauty and the Beast; same for the Lion King. It's the less bad remake with the Jungle book in my opinion; not as memorable and awesome as the original but good.

I was not invested whatsoever with the actor/lines/whatever it is until he started going a little nuts later on in the movie. Also rushing the very first part was a mood killer too but I loved Will's Genie

Do not have high hopes for The little mermaid either. being churned out too fast. The songs were nothing spectacular. best song number again was tthe genies. followed slightly by the magic carpet ride song. I rate it at 2 stars for me. And i have watched a lot of live action fantasy films and disney adaptions since i was a little girl. yep nope i'm with the critics on this one. and very very rarely am i ever. but this could have been better done. the acting was also sub par for me. minus will smith and aladdin who acted the best for me.

I really appreciated the differences that Will Smith brought to the beloved songs. I agree the speeding up of the dancing during some of the numbers was a bit weird. That was the thing I didn't like, but everything else I liked. The song Jasmin sings was great, although it was completely out of place. It's not a perfect movie, but my wife, daughters & myself really enjoyed it & will probably watch it loads of times when it comes out on bluray.

Women never being sultan was never supposed to be an issue in a story set somewhere in fantasy Arabia. (Funny tho, the original Aladdin story was an Arab story set in their fantasy of China) And in Star Wars the PC quota is never shouldered by white actors. Despite being far fewer in number than white actors, all the minorities have to shoulder PC: Lando is now Pansexual, Chirrut might be gay, Rose is fat and is shoehorned there to take off the burden of interracial relationship burdens from Rey (rly, casting a randumb low-budget minor actress from Collegehumor with ZERO experience in film show how little they cared and how much of a throwaway scapegoat she is)

We wanted a Live Action "Remake" as in the same movie except Not Animated, Of course it's going to have alot of the same Stuff you Blithering Idiot. Number Two You Did Great Will Smith, Robin Williams would be Proud. Funny, Cool and just Amazing. Three You can't expect a Director to just Follow the Script Scene for Scene from the Original, He has to Add his Own Stuff for Creative Purposes, He went more into Detail with the Characters Backstories, I liked It. Summary Overall a Great Movie to watch, The Theatre was almost Filled Up, they Reacted to Almost Everything as a Group which is Good. Roller Coaster of Emotions, I got the Feels once or twice. I Definitely Recommend It but just let it stand on it's Own and Don't compare Scene for Scene to the Original and you will be Fine. I am Definitely Going to Own it when it comes out.

Main complain was the actor playing Aladdin. He acting was really monotone. Jasmine was awesome, saulton as well even jafar didnt mind him as much as I thought I was going to. Genie I agree I liked him better when he was in human form for some reason. It was alright overall.

So here's hoping they make a better live action "Return of Jafar" and "King of Thieves" And don't worry, I loved this movie (not as much as the original) and I think didn't you were brutal at all. Your critique was mostly respectful. I've heard harsher reviews. Half the critics seem to like it, the other half seem to dislike it, while the audience mostly loves it.

The problem with it was that they gave everybody 2 songs- Aladdin, Jasmine, and Genie. Jasmine should've only got 1 song max because it took away from Aladdin's character building and the second one stole Jeffar's thunder. Jeffar never got time to shine as a villain in this and he should've got a song if anybody. They told you he was a good man instead of showing you like in the original. Jasmine's new motivation was also not as good.

Will Smith as the genie was pretty good. Jafar however... looked mildly annoyed that he missed the bus rather than evil. He was so boring...no use of the snake at all

                                                                                                                                                              I have mixed feelings for the movie, but it’s just my opinion, they could have done better than what I saw, but the “ Never has a friend like me” scene was Worth it!
