Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin (2019) Keeps the Spirit of the Original Disney Movie to an Extent

I was elated when the teaser for the Disney classic Aladdin was released. But when the trailer featuring Will Smith’s genie dropped, I got scared. You see when I was in grade school, my grandparents made me watch a classic film every Saturday night and there was this one film that stuck. It is called “The Thief of Bagdad” (1940), a remake of “The Thief of Bagdad” (1924). Don’t get me wrong. This is a magical film and if I’m not mistaken Disney’s Aladdin was influenced by it; however, the Djinn played by Rex Ingram gave me nightmares. Seeing a blue Will Smith, reminded me of that BUT it did not stop me from watching my ultimate favourite Disney film and animated television series.

Same with my Thoughts on Avengers: Infinity War, this will also be spoiler-free. 😉

See The Bigger Picture: Captain Marvel Jumps Right in Action

Ah, Marvel Studios’ latest film in The Infinity Saga! Some say it’s underwhelming and I see their point. But you also have to see the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole. Based on Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), most of the mightiest superheroes have fallen. This means that the last solo superhero film before we reach the end game will have a different approach.
