02:02
to keep it to five minutes yeah okay
02:04
nice all the real quick oh so
02:08
non-spoiler if you haven't seen any of
02:11
their letters I'm sorry for you
02:13
I really enjoy this movie it took a
02:17
little bit to get used to it because it
02:18
was live-action so you kind of had like
02:20
see how they were gonna play some of the
02:22
action scenes and the something the
02:24
songs but once they kind of got started
02:27
once you start seeing the characters I
02:29
thought it did a great job so the genie
02:32
really stole the show will sort of did
02:35
his thing
02:36
I really enjoyed his uh you know new
02:41
message Emmy we love Robert wills he was
02:44
awesome you know nobody can throw a
02:47
dream like that but but we'll definitely
02:49
put a swing on it and I did do this
02:51
thing so that definitely made the movie
02:54
you know fun to watch the graphics were
02:58
amazing the tiger they did a really good
03:01
job with CGI on the tiger so it was
03:03
pretty cool head a bird in a in the
03:05
monkey at times as well
03:07
all the characters were on there from
03:09
the movies I guess the only thing I
03:12
didn't whoa they could a little better
03:14
Jafar was okay I think that's why I took
03:16
me down a little bilham a movie he he
03:18
acted all right but I guess he just took
03:20
a long time to really get into Jenna
03:22
Forrest character but all in all me I
03:25
definitely say you go watch it it was
03:27
fine
03:27
y'all have a good time watching this
03:29
brings back all those those kid memories
03:32
of the cartoon Annette what about you
03:36
breathe rap Street right strong take
03:41
that oh sorry I keep going back to the
03:44
city of course you do someone's singing
03:47
all the time
03:50
amen I love this movie I wasn't like a
03:54
lot of other people who had a lot of
03:55
doubts about it like every time they
03:57
kept killing how Will Smith look I'm
04:00
like I was kind of like what's wrong
04:02
with that I mean what did he was he
04:04
supposed to look like I mean what the
04:06
heck is a blue genie supposed to look
04:08
like I guess everybody's an expert on
04:09
that it didn't bother me that much so I
04:12
didn't have a lot of doubt going into
04:14
the movie I just know that Will Smith
04:16
haven't really had it in a long time
04:19
and I was kind of Concerned as to how he
04:20
was gonna play the part you know because
04:23
Will Smith is not Robin Williams but
04:26
once I saw
04:26
trailers I realized that he's gonna be
04:29
black genie and not commonly genie I was
04:32
like okay he's like you know cool you
04:34
know you know that gene okay but uh this
04:38
movie was so much better than my
04:40
expectations like I could not have
04:42
expected this
04:43
no like I absolutely love this movie man
04:47
I don't know what it was I don't know
04:49
how Disney did it when I filled it was
04:52
so magical like really that's the that's
04:54
the expression I kept thinking as I was
04:56
watching movie it's like this is just
04:58
magical like it's just it just feels
05:02
incredible like I really am into this
05:04
world that they have I really connect it
05:07
with all the characters I'm all of the
05:09
funny parts were hilarious there's one
05:12
scene where Genie and Aladdin are giving
05:15
gifts to Jasmine that must have been if
05:17
they may have been the funniest part is
05:27
filled with them and I thought that on
05:29
one thing about I was watching another
05:31
review about the original land and they
05:33
were saying that the problem with the
05:35
original land is at the end of the movie
05:36
kind of Peters down a little bit like
05:38
the energy kind of goes down so I was
05:40
wondering if that was gonna happen with
05:41
this one but Norlin climax was good and
05:44
also they add a couple things and forth
05:46
Jasmine's character is concerned in
05:48
order to update her character for the
05:51
full 21st century and I really
05:53
appreciated that I liked that they were
05:57
going in that direction so I liked it I
05:59
think everybody should see it I'm gonna
06:02
go out on a limb here I know this is
06:04
tough but this might actually be my
06:06
favorite movie now right after the movie
06:09
was over I'm like that movie was
06:10
incredible and the people in our
06:12
audience they gave it a round of
06:14
applause after it's over
06:15
so before creek 2 was my favorite movie
06:18
but I mean Creek regular Creek was my
06:20
favorite movie but now this this might
06:23
be at the top I need to see it again but
06:25
this might be at the time so any other
06:28
comments on the non-spoiler review sir
06:30
uh something about what I could say
06:33
non-spoilery but yeah that's gonna echo
06:36
some of the things you said with this
06:37
new storyline that you'll see
06:40
is it is Ford this time so it makes a
06:42
lot of sense
06:43
after watching the cartoon before went
06:45
saw it it definitely if they didn't add
06:48
the parts that they added into the movie
06:50
there would have been lackluster so they
06:52
had me coming give it a little up and
06:54
give no have Kevin make some sense
06:56
because a lot of times in the cartoons
06:57
like one of one thing I could say like
07:00
if you don't see guards and things and
07:02
people in the palace you just think the
07:04
same two characters in the whole palace
07:06
so and literally they make no more like
07:08
there's a palace in the kingdom then I
07:10
was like oh just a sultan in the
07:12
princess and Jafar up in the whole
07:14
palace so so I'm like how they Anderson
07:17
characters and you know made it seem
07:19
more real so definitely I think they're
07:23
awesome Jeremy nice all right so let's
07:27
go ahead and break it down and get into
07:28
the actual all the review so if you
07:31
haven't seen this movie go watch the
07:34
movie and then come back but it doesn't
07:36
matter because you know how glad goes
07:38
you know what happens in Aladdin we're
07:40
not going to tell you anything
07:44
let's go what do you think about was
07:48
before the review of this movie okay so
07:51
I want to say going this is always been
07:54
my favorite disney movies though they
07:56
were Lion King I love the music they did
07:59
a really good job with the music I like
08:02
how they they kind of slowed it down and
08:04
and kind of made it a little bit more I
08:07
guess how someone was singing if they're
08:09
trying to run from somebody so it was
08:12
like the best melody all the time but it
08:13
was like they kind of slowed it down
08:14
through some of the scenes when he's in
08:17
the marketplace running and jumping over
08:19
things but I'm like how they made they
08:21
brought a musical feel to it with
08:23
everybody know chasing them and
08:25
everybody singing their tunes even when
08:27
he went to the I guess it was the
08:29
women's sarong and and the lady starts
08:32
trying to beat him with a stick and
08:33
everything and he comes out the window
08:36
and like they may throw everything back
08:38
from the cartoon version to the real
08:41
life so I really enjoyed watching it and
08:44
then once at first when I first saw it I
08:48
mean you see Jasmine so early already in
08:50
the marketplace that kind of threw me
08:52
off for a little bit I was like okay
08:54
Jasmin's already been going to the
08:56
marketplace she discuss on the cartoon
08:58
it kind of builds up to her going and
09:00
then they they mind everything so they
09:03
kind of throw her out there already and
09:06
they kind of talk about what happened to
09:07
her mom was like oh joke she had them
09:09
all because of course the cartoon never
09:10
talks about the parents and what
09:12
actually happened too long so mom did so
09:22
so she goes so she basically nobody's
09:25
seen her for you know Hollis Thompson's
09:28
her mom passed away that was good little
09:29
ugly that's why she's unable to go out
09:31
of the kingdom and make sense now so I'm
09:34
gonna eat a little dialogue in there but
09:37
her Aladdin and her working on screen
09:40
again I thought were really good the
09:42
carpet when they did their carpets is
09:52
the source of the single greatest
09:54
musical transition the music is so good
10:11
on lat so it was so good to see it and
10:14
just really enjoy him I'm one of my
10:17
favorite parts was the jeans you know me
10:19
know when I came out and I everybody was
10:22
like hands a new fight ok house house
10:25
we're gonna do this cuz some of that
10:27
class Wilhelm and why aren't proper
10:29
woods did such a great job and he was
10:31
such a great performer so I was like how
10:33
will do it I knew home but yeah he came
10:36
in there he brought his swag on it he
10:38
got the jokes out there be Willie
10:41
bouncing dancing in the singing when he
10:45
came out and he had the monkey doing all
10:47
the throws everything it was beautiful I
10:49
loved it the graphics were awesome and
10:51
then I think the best song that just
10:55
kind of like made it go for another
10:56
notch was when Prince when he comes into
11:01
the city and everybody singing here's
11:03
all the
11:05
you know his monkeys he has the new heat
11:07
and he's like just jumping around so I
11:09
was like oh this is so good like I
11:11
couldn't I couldn't want a better
11:13
picture neighbor all the characters to
11:16
life
11:17
the songs were awesome I didn't know how
11:19
they would no I'm glad they had CGI the
11:21
elephant cuz I don't know they would
11:23
have a real elephant kind of doing that
11:24
sort of thing but you know it was it was
11:29
get all the way around I guess the only
11:30
kind of are we doing dislikes right here
11:32
yeah mmm oh you really yeah I guess
11:36
dislikes I would have sometimes I guess
11:40
I felt that Latin and even with Jasmine
11:47
they couldn't act a little more had a
11:49
little more urgency and a little more
11:52
emotion about how they're acting I could
11:54
tell they were maybe new actors because
11:57
they just didn't really jump into some
11:58
of those but he falls and and is in the
12:02
cave are you when he turn around to see
12:03
and says what's the monkey thing Abu Abu
12:08
he on the cartoon he was like oh he's
12:11
like screaming at him like no like he's
12:17
running for his life he jumps and he's
12:19
like magic carpet but he he doesn't seem
12:22
like he's about to die you know the
12:24
whole time and even when he's in the in
12:27
the cave he's like darn he were stuck
12:34
down here like hey he gave you you have
12:36
a lot more motion in the cartoon action
12:39
you know so that was my biggest thing
12:41
was like come home even play that
12:43
Aladdin Parkins Aladdin was like you
12:45
know screaming you dirty jackal and all
12:47
the time to think oh and this was part
12:49
of the worst part of scene that I didn't
12:52
like was when the I guess the other
12:55
prints came in and the guard almost hit
12:58
the kids with horse and he needs the
13:00
kids out the way said call them you know
13:02
you little freak rat or something like
13:04
that
13:05
he's a who you call you say you'll never
13:07
be pleased morning ah like the host like
13:13
do he gets into him on the cartoon like
13:16
you a diester
13:18
Brett and only he gets into it like that
13:21
was like reading off a card or something
13:23
like he can't act I'm like come on they
13:26
could've done that part better like a
13:28
cartoon like does justice and he's gone
13:32
nothing like my only things like some of
13:34
the scenes with a Latin
13:35
he just didn't act as well as I thought
13:37
he did on the cartoon by definitely like
13:40
Jasmine's part and giving her a little
13:42
more of a you know you might have some
13:44
more character development having a
13:46
reason why and her becoming the Sultan
13:49
at the end made sense because she was
13:50
know been prepared for that and they
13:53
didn't shy away it was only about no
13:55
Prince I like how they brought that in
13:57
but everything else was really good
13:59
will this thing Jafar had me a little
14:02
edge but then I thought he brought it
14:04
through by the end he really gave him
14:05
some meaning why he was trying to be a
14:07
bad guy you know like he was he came up
14:11
like a Latin and then he was more like
14:13
okay the second is not we knew that
14:15
second wasn't this thing you want to be
14:18
first because of work I was good yeah
14:29
well real quick I'm gonna read a comment
14:31
here that uh mr. Aaron that one just
14:34
posted here it says I literally just got
14:36
back from the movie and loved it I had a
14:38
crazy thought with a young age afar what
14:41
if they had him as a Latin father you
14:44
know he said his parents were gone then
14:46
they were in the sand together Jafar
14:48
said he was a common thief once - huh
14:52
pretty good theory right there it's like
14:54
when the in game theory is right yeah I
14:55
don't know yeah could be
14:58
good theory there I appreciate you
15:00
sharing that with us bro all right let
15:03
me see here my thoughts on this yeah
15:06
like I said I love this movie
15:09
I love Iago it's the bird it was offered
15:12
to me and to me they made this movie
15:15
they must have gone back and watched him
15:17
the old transformers cartoons I know you
15:19
can't relate to this at the back of the
15:21
day though the transformers cartoons
15:23
they always used to be this robotic bird
15:25
called a Starscream and he always be he
15:28
will always be spying on everything but
15:30
every time I
15:31
mas came up for playing ok here's what
15:33
we're gonna do we're gonna go to this
15:34
Dam and we're gonna help the humans get
15:36
all the energy in the world and then
15:38
after singing and you see the birds he
15:45
would always go back I loved him and he
15:49
seems like he's like he knows we like
15:51
sad and at the end of the movie he was
15:54
like what is a bi Jafar and the default
16:00
grab him
16:02
I mentioned it dawned is not for the
16:04
review but the singing with Al and given
16:06
the guest was hilarious will Smurf was
16:08
comedy gold there but he's like yeah
16:11
years I've never been so embarrassed
16:16
that was great to be here and now yeah
16:20
many the movie just show real genuine
16:22
emotion like I laugh when it was funny I
16:25
was really concerned about the
16:27
characters
16:28
um I wanted Aladdin to learn the lesson
16:31
you know stop all this lying and stuff
16:33
you know I mean because you know the way
16:36
to a girl's heart is to be yourself and
16:39
also to have imagined yourself meet
16:43
yourself and have a magic carpet because
16:51
that lesson gets overlooked a lot like
16:53
yeah he was himself but he also had a
16:56
magic carpet have a knife and have a
16:59
nice cause there you go
17:04
that's the secret to it um let me see
17:07
Will Smith after he was freed from the
17:09
bow the bonds of being a genie was great
17:12
like when um when he first was what is
17:16
it when he said when he took basically
17:18
he made it but he wasn't a genie anymore
17:20
and they liked the look on his face like
17:23
you talked about like the they acting
17:25
from the other care it's like Will Smith
17:27
he'd nailed it like right there sigh
17:29
gosh man like I really feel your
17:32
emotions right now like it took me back
17:33
to when he was the first Prince things
17:42
better
17:43
better than I thought the girl was great
17:44
every boys really good yeah only we
17:53
think south or a voice is pretty good
17:56
too yeah not only did my only dislikes
18:00
what kind of weird like when jinhwan
18:03
Will Smith first started out as a genie
18:05
it took me a second to college Tim it
18:07
was just it felt weird initially so when
18:10
he first came out yeah like just I don't
18:13
know it just kind of felt right then
18:18
right now the song was fine just here
18:22
being a genie initially just kind of
18:24
seemed kind of weird but it I feel like
18:25
he grew into the character like by the
18:27
time he got to the press our leasing
18:31
perfect they don't for the rest of the
18:35
movie you know I was I was I was kind of
18:39
weird with how he portrayed the
18:40
character like I didn't understand all
18:42
the feminine gesturing that he was doing
18:44
like oh he's like oh I'm gonna go to the
18:46
club that's fine like is he gonna be the
18:48
gay Jeannie
18:49
okay that's fine be the gay Dini but
18:52
it's weird to be the heterosexual
18:53
Jeannie what's the what with all of this
18:58
that was what I didn't understand this
19:00
is his choices like black Kampf comedian
19:05
101 you look a little funny gay guy once
19:09
in a while yeah when those character
19:15
when they do it it's kind of like like
19:17
you talked about like Chris Tucker right
19:19
before the snow when Chris Tucker does
19:21
it he's like hey I'm Chris Tucker I'm
19:22
Chris Tucker a man why do shoot me man
19:25
like he switches into them I didn't
19:27
really feel like we were switching into
19:29
that I thought he was just that but it's
19:32
funny to me like when he started
19:33
handmade and all that stuff went away
19:35
he's like oh I'm gonna go to this club
19:36
oh look at that look at that right there
19:38
let me go a knock on this door boom
19:42
working out real quick like all that
19:45
went away you know the other thing was
19:48
like the the new official a whole new
19:51
world like it pales in pick right the
19:54
one that plays after the movie yeah
19:56
that pales in comparison to people Bryce
19:58
enriching the feel like I need to hear
20:00
that again
20:01
it's they nail it so whoever sings this
20:03
new one like mmm the movie was like
20:08
nearly flawless man so I love it so any
20:12
of anything else to say about a lad I
20:14
mean it's a lot of things I want to say
20:16
about one I mean I can't wait to watch
20:19
it again I guess one thing that I was
20:23
warned they were going to do was the big
20:25
snake you know he turns to a sorcerer so
20:28
it was okay the end it was still pretty
20:32
good you know with him basically
20:33
fighting you know
20:36
jasmine and and a Latin and they're all
20:39
he turns to the bird and everything and
20:41
they're all basically chasing trying to
20:43
get that lamp I thought that was pretty
20:45
cool way to kind of end it and get
20:48
everybody you know it was a great battle
20:51
scene again so I really enjoyed that I
20:53
liked how they trick took also when he
20:56
turned into the genie at the end I was
21:01
hoping he would have turned like red
21:02
like you get more like how Jamie is blue
21:05
