    Aladdin

    ★★½

    This was... odd to say the least but also not as terrible as I expected. The second act is what really stood out as well as the humor, but it really fucks up some of my favorite songs and some of the performances are just so cringey, but Will Smith was plenty of fun and Naomi Scott was fantastic as Jasmine, and she's a lot more interesting in this film than Aladdin actually was.
