Aladdin 2019 review

Here is my second attempt at reviewing the new, 2019 Aladdin live-action movie. The second attempt, because I made the decision not to publish my first review due to a Content Claim on YouTube. Because I sang an Aladdin song, and it was flagged. I'm just telling myself that my singing is so awesome that Disney is worried about me stealing all their limelight (LOL)!

Anyhow, this is a new video, without the singing. So not as exciting, sadly.

Here is what I had written in the first review (which I never published):

I was sorta, kinda, looking forward to the 2019 live-action remake of the classic movie Aladdin. We were spoilt by Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson, because that was a wonderful movie, and I wasn't sure that they could do the same with Aladdin, especially without the great Robin Williams as Genie.

Did I enjoy the movie? Very much so. Do I think it is as good as the original movie? Yes. Did I think Will Smith did a good job as Genie?' Let me start by saying that if anybody coulda pulled it off, it would be Will. Did I think he did? Actually, yes. He was awesome as Genie, As awesome as the Genie in the production at the Hyperion at Disney California Adventure. Even more awesome.

I actually have nothing bad to say about the film. It was a great piece of escapism that took me to Agrabah for a couple of hours, and I have nothing but praise for that fact.

Life isn't always easy, and Disney always has the knack of making things seem better because they know how to entertain. That's why I went to see the movie. Some people see movies to see how good the acting is, and whether it is Oscar-worthy. I'm not one of those people. I go to the cinema, pay my 20 bucks (and another $30 for the food) so that I can have fun and have an enjoyable experience.

I would even see this movie again. BATB is the only other movie that I've ever seen twice at the cinema. This maybe the second. Just maybe.

Until next time,
