The first movie was lousy - I am going to give this movie the same as the first movie - Doesn't seem to be anyone in Hollywood who can make a good Horror film any longer. This was so predictable. The plot was the same plot as many other movies. It's either a scary doll, scary teddy bear or scary clown possessed and killing randomly. Boring.
I have come to the conclusion that if the Critics Love a Movie I will probably be disappointed. Even though I am a huge Disney Fan and I loved Toy Story (at least one and two) I found this story bland. I am sorry to say that. For some reason, maybe because it was solely all about Woody and the other character didn't get a chance to get their quirks, jokes and personalities involved. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't Top Disney Quality. Didn't like the Bunny/Chick they were just out of place. The Dummies were left overs in the Studio Warehouse from the Goosebumps Movies, so they dusted them off and threw them in this movie? Disney needs to look a quality lately, not quantity.
I went in this movie with doubt - I loved Robin Williams talents and thought no one could pull off the Genie roll. But I was pleasingly surprised. Will Smith was great at this character. It was a little different spln, but really good. The music was up beat and fun. The story was really well written. It was Cast extremely well. I think maybe Jafar could have been played by someone more sinister, he came across to me more of a Pretty Boy then an evil sorcerer, but it didn't take away from his role too much. It's a keeper - Disney Magic at it's best.
I just have one question, the question I always ask in cases like this. "WHY?" Can't anyone in Hollywood, in any Studio, make a NEW MOVIE? Why are they remaking every single movie over again? I hate to tell you but just because you are now replacing women in the original male roles it doesn't mean it will be a better movie or even a good movie. It's the cheap way to say that they are now using more females in the movies, but that's it. How about "Writing" new, outstanding roles for women instead? I didn't see this yet - I think I will wait for it to come to TV.
Not going to go see this movie I am sure I have seen it before? I just realized now what the other movie was "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels". This roll reversal thng is out of control. It doesn't make it a hit just because you change the male rolls to female rolls. In most cases the rolls are meant to be male and it plays better with a male actor. Hollywood Writers have nothing New so now they are just taking every movie that starred a Male lead or Actor and replacing a Female Actress and saying it's a new movie. Wrong! Not to mention Rebel Wilson is playing the same character in all her movies. The names change, but it's the same character, same gestures, same laugh, same silliness, same character.
