    Felt like a cash grab for me, and played out like one.

    But it still worked sadly...

    A Whole New World scene felt so forced and bad, but it still hit me in the feels.

    The Aladdin "breaking my heart" you were "my friend" stuff made me roll my eyes... and was the worst arc there. It was like a quick 180 after saving Aladdin's life.

    Everything was so cliche and forced, and sadly was a pretty bad movie if not for the nostalgic factor. There was no chemistry between Aladdin and Jasmine.

    The cast was terrible, except for Will Smith... I'll be damned but he did a decent genie and was the highlight of the movie. Jafar wasn't half bad either but the dialogue didn't give him much to work with.

    I was also mad at the reprise they did towards the end with the song. It fit the Disney formulaic success that they do always and just annoys me at this point. They did it with BOTH character like WTF STOP. I saw Frozen in this film 10 times and I wanted to die. Like he stole the lamp from a thief just because he was once a thief. The opening scene was Aladdin realizing someone stole from him and it was done with something 1/10th the weight. That makes no sense can we have some semblance of realism in movies anymore?

    A 4/10 for me just because I enjoyed it for what it was... a cash grab with amazing cinematics and to turn your brain off if you want to enjoy it... What are your thoughts?

      I will NEVER watch any of the Disney live action remakes.  I watched Episode VII: The Force Awakens and that'll be the last Star Wars movie I'll watch.  Disney has become nothing more than a cash grab company.

    7/10 in my opinion...

    Will Smith was damn good.

    Have you guys not thought about what will be your 3 wishes if you had the chance?

    During the movie when genie asked Aladdin about it. I thought so hard and only came up with: let everybody have the ability to study magic, and let me become the most powerful wizard. And when Jafar wished to become the most powerful sorcerer, for that very second, I kinda like him.
