Aladdin ★½

God awful. This movie is the final confirmation I needed that Will Smith is an A-list star but a D-List actor. His attempts at crying only worked once on Fresh Prince and let's leave it there. Zero range, zero versatility, waning charisma - he's a dud.

Costumes feel more Bollywood than the Levant but that's orientalism for you. Aladdin was sexy as f--- though as was his nemesis. Hope to see both in better productions in the future.
