Aladdin ★★★½

some people can never like these disney live action remakes because they love the originals so much and that’s... understandable i guess? still for me it’s the other way around like i cannot bring myself to hate these movies? sure the script isn’t very strong and this isn’t nearly as pretty as it probably could’ve been BUT as soon as mena massoud comes around singing a whole new world with a smile on his face that could end wars and cure disease—who cares?? not me that’s the point! i love this aladdin and i love this jasmine and i love every bit of dancing that was in this movie even though it might have profited from more dancing..... 

also! if dumb pseudo-scandinavian prince billy magnussen is still looking for a wife i want him to know i’m free tonight and also all nights after that
