Some part of me wishes they had made this a Thompson Squared roadshow between Tessa Thompson and Emma Thompson but alas. Can’t risk another Ghostbusters reaction, can we?
I’d even say I’d rather watch Dark Phoenix over Captain Marvel. Hear me out!
When you give me people like Charles Dance and Anthony Ramos, don’t expect me not to feel like time would be better spent watching Tywin skinning a deer or Hamilton clips. Or Ken Watanabe SINGING AND DANCING.
Half the shows we have now would not exist had it not been for Deadwood- and that includes Game of Thrones.
Aladdin felt much more like a new movie with an Easter Egg or quick reference than the “REMEMBER HOW GOOD THIS WAS!?” vibe of Beauty and the Beast.
It’s very checklist-y. “We’re a… FELLOWSHIP.” “It’s an opera about a RING.” “A… HOBBIT.”
UNLEASH THE SPOILERS.
To really win me over, a film has to not only be technically sound, but I need to be invested. I need to shed tears and I need to want to do it again.
This movie is so bad, I would rather watch Assassin’s Creed.
It’s thematically stronger than some other superhero movies and I find that more interesting to watch (cough, Ant-man and the Wasp, other Marvel things).
