    Disney does not make good films anymore. Last good thing thay came out of disney was the mcu but even that will be destroyed in the next phase

      You can still watch and like the original Aladdin movie of 1992 more than Guy Ritiche's Aladdin 2019 despite the rotten tomatoes rating, Chris.

        "whats the point" to bring a classic from an older time to a newer generation, as a kid i never much liked black and white movies, and growing up i never paid them any mind, now, would i have went my whole life now knowing about psycho, probably not, but i certainly wouldn't have been aware of the older one without the newer one, and personally i think they both have their merrits, ad i feel like the remake, explores the characters insanity a little bit better, but that's just my opinion, the point of remakes is to take something older and give it a fresh new spin for a newer generation, this happens to a LOT of anime, and some people know it's the same exact story but shot in this wierd new realistic style and that's EXACTLY what they want, and as far as WHY dinsey is doing this, well you know why, cuz their is money in it

                    Totally agree. I need more than a nostalgic hook to be interested in these Disney carbon copies

                      So if they make a remake different..people complain....make it the exact same...people complain.Don’t make it all... people complain. Make an original story... people don’t come or movie makes way less money... so basically they can’t win🤷🏻‍♂️

                                I guess we all can’t be satisfied. I went to take the kids to watch dumbo and was disappointed that it wasn’t as the original. Tim Burton did good though. In my mind it’s more for the kids and hoping they get that great aww effect as I did as a kid. Maybe Disney should just put the originals out on an annual date at a discounted price?🤔

                                  Call it what it is; a safe tech demo for Disney’s CG tech. It’s safe because it’s a recognisable property that will make money guaranteed while showing off their tech...I.e a pointless cash grab.

                                    Well I guess there is no need for me to see this. CGI does not impress me. Good screenwriting & originality does. I was never all that into The Lion King in the 1st place. I thought maybe I would see this, but based on reviews... nah. I did go see Aladdin and I don't know WTF that was but it wasn't Aladdin. Spoilers, Jasmine is not trying to get her choice in husband, she wants to rule as Sultan and she gets her wish, chases after Aladdin in Disney's most cringe role reversal yet. The Feminazis really fucked that one up.

                                      The point of doing a remake is to tell the same story in a different way. I didn't watch the movie yet, but for what you say, Jon Favreau failed at this....

                                        Sadly this sums up many recent movies - wonderful visuals and fantastic Atmos sound but it lacks SOUL . I'll stick to the classic thanks . Another Disney money grab. 🙁🙁🙁

                                            What they have done is monumental for sure -- they have set back the "art" of CGI back by about 40 years or so. Not to mention the art of moviemaking ...

                                                            I agree with pretty much every thing here...
                                                            I mean, why make a CGI remake of an animated cartoon? What's the point? Sure it looks astonishing but it isn't such a marvel or something completely new/different. We've seen very good and realistic CGI animals in other movies, and it is really difficult to understand the value of this other than nostalgia.
                                                            Sure, Disney doesn't give a crap about it as long as they make huge bucks but it doesn't really make sense as a viewer to care for these so spineless remakes.

It's perfectly fine to just upgrade the graphs but that's not the point of a review.... You say it's almost exactly the same but souless . Which means you don't like the animation tech for face expressions and stuff but you also praise the tech used. Confusing review...
