5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 16 Mar 2005
This review is from: Aladdin [2 Disc Special Edition] [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
For me, this is the best of all Disney's - and they do have quite an impressive CV to choose from! Robin Williams is as good as everyone says and Jonathon Freeman equally good (it would have been nice to see him a little more). The story is pretty typical Disney, that is, romance against the odds but done better than usual, with great animation and fantastic songs (although why 'Whole New World' was nominated for the Oscar when there are at least two better songs in the film, both sung by the genie I will never know.
One of the best things about this film is the realism. Yes, I know, it's a story about a genie in a lamp, but bear with me. When you watch the Lion King, during 'I just can't wait to be King', all the animals start dancing in weird ways, the colours go crazy, the whole thing seems to go out of control and to an extent it starts to resemble one of the old cartoons - you know the ones where someone runs off the edge of a cliff, doesn't realise, and keeps running. With Aladdin, you're required to make a leap of faith at the start, by accepting the existence of the genie, but once you have done that, everything makes sense, and all the wild activities and colours created by the genie just seem logical. You don't find yourself questioning what is happening as is so easy to do in many films.
If you love cartoons, this is one of the best. If you don't own any - this is where you should start.
