4k movies reviews
It’s hard to start a review of this movie. I’m afraid not to match. So that you understand: I fell in love with the eponymous cartoon so much that I reviewed it almost 30, or even more, times. There was a period when I watched it every day. Learned by heart.
Given all this, I did not have much expectations from the film. It seemed impossible for the authors to make a movie that would convey all the emotions that you experience when watching a cartoon. How can I remove live Aladdin? Who can take the place of the beautiful Jasmine or the mind-blowing Gene, voiced by touching Robin Williams? How could they reshoot the Monkey or the magnificent Iago?
In general, there were many questions. Going to the film, I was in anticipation. But this was not a foretaste of watching a movie, but of the fact that forgotten emotions would pop up while watching, a sense of the time that had elapsed and everything connected with it would flood. The film itself, it seemed, could not repeat the success of the cartoon. Too everything was fine there.
In addition to this, I watched the movieÂs commercial, Aladdin and Jasmine, already real real people, I didnÂt like at all. They did not at all resemble those cartoon characters and images that were formed in me. We were pleased that the castle of Agraba was recognizable. It was that castle. House!
The name of the director is well known. His track record spoke to me rather against him than for.
And how pleasant it was to make mistakes in almost everything.
Almost immediately, the film dragged me on. The beginning has been redone, and therefore looks a bit out of place. But what impression it will make on a viewer unfamiliar with the original, I canÂt say. In principle, the move is interesting.
To a greater extent, I can share my impressions and feelings from watching. The smile never left the face of almost the entire film. These were memories and scene recognition. These were emotions from favorite songs and performances.
As for the plot. He almost completely follows the cartoon. Only a few scenario moves have been added, which are not to complement the plot, but rather set forth some events differently: they added something, something went a little differently. In the end, it seems that it turned out to complicate and deepen the problems of the film, to make it a little more adult, more dramatic. It seems that for a feature film – this is a justified step. Moreover, this film (I think it was supposed to) will be attended by many adults.
As for the music. She is beautiful. The beloved oriental motifs of songs and melodies sound fresh, large-scale and as if in a new way in the new arrangements. But these are the same familiar tunes. The emotions are amazing when listening. In general, the film / cartoon music itself is a separate topic for conversation. In short, the composers were able to completely solve the issues and tasks that were laid in each of the compositions. When listening to each specific song in isolation from the film, you can understand what the music is about, what mood it conveys, and what happens in the frame. Well, you can not say about the perfectly oriental flavor of the tunes. Charming sounds, lingering, stupefying, swirling, enveloping the listener. What can compare with these emotions …
Several new songs appeared in the film, each of which at first looked out of place. This is understandable, because in general you already imagine what to expect. It was a difficult task, if they wanted to embed them in a film – to make it all look organic. And it worked out. New songs make the film deeper and more mature. And the song ÂSpeechless, performed by Jasmine at the climax of the film, touched goosebumps – very beautiful, strong, characteristic and melodic. And she is about the eternal. About the difficulties that we face in life, about the strength and courage required to overcome them. And everything was shot just amazing.
As for the picture, this is a separate story. The decision to make this film is, of course, akin to a feat. Such a large-scale project that the details just go round. And this impression lasts throughout the film. To remove this is a titanic work. I want to repeat the large-scale word again and again.
Aladdin is the east. Here is the world of beautiful costumes, desert and Agraba. With its rich and bustling markets, bustling merchants, formidable guards and charming slaves, narrow streets, flowers and a stunning palace. Well, the performance of Gene could not help but frighten the creators. After all, this is a pure flight of fantasy, superpower without limits. How to show it in the frame?
And the picture came out wonderful. The feeling is that you are transported to childhood, forgetting about everything. Each frame is so rich that it seems that children will not even be able to perceive everything. But adults will be delighted. The colors are arranged very well. Perfectly placed color accents. The scenes are very deep. It is addictive, enchanting. Everything just dazzles with paints. Real ecstasy for the eyes.
What is important for such a big movie is not to flirt with the creation of the picture, not to shift the tilt towards visualization, to leave room for human emotions. Otherwise, the film will become one-time. The viewer should empathize, see the development of the plot, the drama of the scenes. He must respond in the soul. And the study of these moments is also visible. One scene of the final kiss of the heroes is worth it. I donÂt know, by chance or not, it turned out that a vein swells on JasmineÂs neck from overwhelming emotions, but it turned out just masterpiece.
Before publishing reviews I listened to the original songs. Surprisingly, the song ÂArabian Nights is performed by Will Smith himself. Probably, the performance could have been better, but he sang quite artistically, although his voice was not enough. But what the actor himself performs creates a special atmosphere.
Speechless is also performed by actress Naomi Scott herself. The song is amazing, deep. The melody, arrangement and presentation are all here at the highest level. And again – the song is served by the actress herself, which only enhances the impression and emotions. And in conjunction with the visual range that the viewer observes while watching, the film penetrates into the very depths of the soul.
The film was just perfect. The East for us is associated with fairy tales, adventures and magic. Something mystical and distant. The spirit of fairy tales and childhood was to be conveyed in the film. And it is there in full. With the beginning of the film, the viewer goes into a fairy tale. ItÂs only a pity that the film ended so quickly. And there, in their world, it was good. The dream has ended and it is necessary to return to reality. Thanks to the creators and actors. They did an amazing job. These two hours, lived in memories and wonderful, full of events and adventures, Agrabe will stay with me for a long time. And with the end of the film, not all the magic ended – something warm, some bit of love, remained in the soul.
