After Movie Review

What passes as young romance for the film’s intended audience sends out some questionable messages but Hardin is after all super dreamy. Oh and I might have forgotten to mention he speaks with a smooth British accent. He also read books and drives a cool car.   //   There are numerous moments in the storyline that mirror one’s own experiences of early romances but only for those with a very over developed sense of revisionist reality. No one was actually that smooth ...

Aladdin Movie Review

The film plays more like a version of the Broadway musical than the animated endeavour and includes a lot more songs. Unfortunately nothing dissipates dramatic tension more than when the actors break into song so the dynamic structure is effected. They have also wisely cleaned up a lot of the questionable stereotypes.   //   While Will Smith is certainly no Robin Williams, the demands placed on the actor are greatly diminished, so he is more than capable of the role. ...
