Aladdin vs. Aladdin

Aladdin

It is very much a goal this year to expand my film watching and that means getting back into the classics I’ve never seen before.

So the 1992 version of Aladdin which is on Disney+ seemed like a perfect place to start. And I honestly thought this would be a simple win. I was definitely going to like this more than the flawed but still enjoyable live-action version from last year.

Turns out I’m very torn so I thought I’d weigh the scales.

Return of the Toys: Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4

Directed By: Josh Cooley

These stupid toys! Why? Why are they better at pulling the emotion than almost any other movie I’ve seen this year?

I spent most of this movie contemplating the likely fate of a spork, being annoyed with a toy and wishing he would grow up and thinking that another toy could do a heck of a lot better in the guy department.

Yeah these characters are more human than the human characters in some recent movies and shows.
