Given that it's Disney, they probably haven't completely finished the CGI yet and there's still some refining to do, as so often happens with big effects films.

No doubt it'll be toilet anyway.

Having said that, the live action Jungle Book was nowhere near as bad as I was expecting.

But then this is Guy Ritchie's Aladdin, so no doubt it will be toilet.

The megadrive and snes versions of Aladdin are different games and both good in their own way but the megadrive version has much better animation and tighter controls and gameplay.

The film is shite although.

The exact opposite of what is correct. That game is all over the place with its controls, weirdly-defined collision detection and generally confusing layouts.

Went to see the West End show as my first full exposure to Aladdin. I must say the character of Aladdin himself is quite dull and boring and unsympathetic.
The rest of the cast and characterisation was quite enjoyable though but could have been better just ditching the titular character completely.

It's really quite bizarre to me that they're remaking Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Lion King and so on.  Aren't the original versions of those films widely considered to be amongst Disney's best output?  They were perfectly good weren't they?  Why do they need redoing?

Because they're raking in more than the originals at the box office, it's simple as that.  We have a whole generation of adults who are obsessed with Disney nostalgia now, so these remakes appeal just as much to them as to today's kids, if not moreso.  They don't even need to be good, that's the magic of it - the name alone (and a couple of celebrity faces/voices) will do the trick.

It's really quite bizarre to me that they're remaking Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Lion King and so on.  Aren't the original versions of those films widely considered to be amongst Disney's best output?  They were perfectly good weren't they?  Why do they need redoing?

This is the worst though (at 43 seconds)

"From the imagination of Tim Burton....". How the fuck is from the imagination of Tim Burton? Dumbo was a film some 17 years before he was even born. Tim Burton's imagination, what a fucking vale of wonders that is, 'I imagine I'll cast Johnny Depp in this one if he's free', 'hey won't it be great if we went for some sort of gothic comic book visuals, that would be neat', maybe Danny Elfman can do the soundtrack.'

Plus Beauty and the Beast is the same fucking film, no attempt to differentiate from the original other than being 'live action' ('live action' now apparently meaning 'mainly CGI'). Judging from their trailers, Lion King and Aladdin seem to be going in the same direction. At least they tried something a bit different with Jungle Book.

Because they're raking in more than the originals at the box office, it's simple as that.  We have a whole generation of adults who are obsessed with Disney nostalgia now, so these remakes appeal just as much to them as to today's kids, if not moreso.  They don't even need to be good, that's the magic of it - the name alone (and a couple of celebrity faces/voices) will do the trick.

Which is a real downer for me because so far my favourite Disney film from that era, The Little Mermaid, has yet to be given the live action remake treatment but it's clearly an inevitability and clearly it's going to be rubbish.

The script is different - it irons out some plot holes, builds up some minor characters and has a new song. Not substantially different, or worth watching, but if the same script had been used for the original it would have been a fractionally better film.

But then they Emma Watson, who can't act for toffee, and miscast Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, and fucked it all up. Oh, and shot the crowd scenes totally artlessly, like it was a live recording of a Broadway show. The live version of the song Belle was a travesty when compared with the carefully crafted shots of the original.

So yeah: shit.

It is in the works with Keira Knightley as the lead but it’s taking forever to develop because she wants Ariel to not give up her voice, not rely on a male ergo no male love interest and they’re waiting for Harvey Weinstein come out of hiding to play Ursula so that Little Mermaid becomes the ultimate story of female empowerment.

They also threw some overt LGBTQ colour into the mix in the form of LeFou, which was a pleasant surprise, if not quite as progressive a move as it might have been given how pitiful and pathetic a creature the character was presented as for much of the runtime.

I hope they plough through the Greatest Hits quite quickly with these Live Action Nearly Renditions and I hope they all make a whole bunch of money so that eventually we might be in a position where a Live-ish Action Fantasia, made in the spirit of the original, is something we can expect to actually see. Imagine that. Imagine a Live-Ish Action anthology film modelled on Fantasia. All the different segments farmed out to suitable hands. Bill Morrison doing a bit for it, maybe. Guy Maddin. It'd be fucking brilliant, but, wouldn't it? Would.

Glad you enjoyed B&B - I thought the direction was kind of leaden and sapped a lot of the joy and magic out of it, although the cast (Watson and McKellen excepted) were perfect and the script did tie up a lot of the problems of the first one.

One of the remakes that I thought really could have done with a savage rewrite was Cinderella. She's such a shit, passive character, and the message of the story is basically just "tolerate cruelty and bullying and eventually someone will rescue you", which is an atrocious thing to tell young girls (or anyone).

It sounds like they're being a bit bolder with the Mulan film - no songs, different characters - so I'm hopeful there'll be more reason for that to exist. It'd be great if they went and made it a proper wuxia action movie. If they recast Eddie Murphy I'll be gutted though.

Van Sant's 1998 version of Psycho was a 1:1 remake of the Hitchcock classic and is widely acknowledged as being one of the most pointless exercises in motion picture history.

Why can't younger audiences watch the original animated Disney version?  Why should they require a modern remake which barely does anything different and instead basically just regurgitates the exact same story but this time in live action?  Why can't Disney simply give the original animated version a theatrical re-release so that parents can take their kids to watch it?

I was watching the likes of It's a Wonderful Life and Some Like It Hot, or perhaps more aptly; Disney's Bambi and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs when I was a kid.  I didn't turn my nose up at movies which were made before my time and if I had, then quite frankly, I shouldn't have been catered to because I wouldn't have deserved to have my philistinic tendancies indulged.

I don't think that's true, at all. It's seen as more of an interesting experiment or demonstration of how simply recreating a film nearly shot for shot doesn't actually capture the same essence of what made it good. Also, that the film techniques used in the original don't all necessarily age well, by modern film making expectations.

In other words, the film isn't good, but it's also definitely not pointless, because intentionally or not, it's actually quite an interesting insight into film-making.

I don't know enough about the film to know whether Van Sant actually intended it to be an interesting curiosity. Certainly the studio can't have wanted that.

On the other hand, I can't imagine he would have made a (nearly) shot for shot remake, unless it was out of curiosity for how effective it would be. Presumably he believed it would stand up better than it did, and be a "positive" experiment, proving the quality of the original, rather than highlighting everything he did worse, like the casting.

I have to assume there was a large degree of curiosity involved, though. Doing a shot for shot remake of a beloved classic without bending to modern film-making standards is not something you would do unless you wanted to see how something like that would turn out. Putting aside how he expected it to be received, the fact it was an insight into film-making has to be deliberate, imo. Why else take such a bizarre risk?

Besides the obvious thing - they want to tap into nostalgia and make oodles of cash - I think the other big reason they are remaking these films is because classic hand drawn animation is now no longer popular with young audiences brought up on the rapid pacing of TV cartoons and 3D animation. 2D films were constantly losing ground to 3D animations, so much so that they have basically stopped being made. More and more you hear anecdotal stories about kids not even liking hand drawn cartoons.

These live actions films are just an attempt to reach a young and old audience with stories they've already built up a name for. Utterly boring, yes, but, as always with Disney, there's very deliberate business thinking there. It's just keeping these "brands" alive in the public mind.

More importantly, you can just look at the fact 2D animation couldn't compete with 3D animation, and have effectively died out from the mainstream. Clearly the audience wasn't going to see those, or returning for rewatches, as often as they were with 3D animation.

I've sometimes wondered if this shift was driven by something other than audience tastes.  For example once animation stopped depending on the process of literally painting cels and was being done completely in computer, it would have felt more arbitrary to imitate painted backgrounds and characters rather than to let computers move towards their own style.

I think it's clear from the brief CGI sections in The Rescuers Down Under, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin (exploring 3D environments/objects and elaborate camera movements) that there was a particular aesthetic the studios were itching to move towards.

I'm not aware of any children finding 2D animation displeasing to look at.  They may perceive it as coming from a different era, but only when it is (I've shown the Charlie Brown Christmas Special to kids I work with loads of times, for example, and they appreciate that it wasn't made recently, due to qualities not limited to the fact that it is hand drawn).  I think they perceive CGI movies as part of a range of possible styles rather than the successor or replacement for 2D animation.

The thing is that the lack of 2D animated movies is down to the usual nonsensical studio thinking.  A couple of 2D animated movies fail at the box office, a few CGI animated movies hit it big and all of a sudden, Hollywood decides that no-one likes 2D animation anymore.  It's the same thinking that led to a long period where R rated movies were rarely being made because of a series of R rated movies which bombed but as soon as Deadpool was a box office success, Hollywood now thinks that the rating must have been the reason for that success; hence, a reassurance of R rated movies.

Yeah, using the studios' choices as an indicator of what audiences actually want isn't a good idea.

Is CGI cheaper? I assume it's more expensive, but I don't know.

I think it depends on how good you want the 2D or 3D to look. But as I understand it 3D is generally easier all round. It requires less skilled manpower, as stuff like water, hair, light etc are all handled by algorithms; if you don't like a scene you can tweak it however you like and re-render it overnight; you can move around "cameras" etc and generally enjoy complex movement much more easily; once the characters and sets have been built they're fixed so there's no risk of something being off-model; and the characters can be downgraded and turned into toy moulds or TV-friendly simpler models easily.

Obviously Flash-animated TV stuff like Teen Titans Go! is cheaper than CGI, but if you wanted something of cinema quality like, say, Mulan, then 3D might be easier all round (although once you're making something as visually complex as Coco, the costs are likely to go way up).

Still looks bad; the original animated version, just without the charm.  Will Smith's performance is not a worthy replacement for Robin Williams.  Also, what does he say after "just kidding"?  It sounds like "rushes", but I don't know what that could possibly mean.

He's saying "Watch this."

Looks absolutely awful. The direction and composition is especially bland. Plus, I'm not sure if the problem is me or them, but it just looks very racist; all these Arabian cliches in a live action setting. The cartoon feels more timeless and heightened, but there's just something very uncomfortable about seeing imagery like that in a 2019 live action film. Maybe I'm just racist for thinking it all looks racist. Racism ouroboros.

I've had zero interest in any of these CGI remakes of Disney movies, but that trailer was quite fantastic. Haters going to hate, but I actually want to see this now.

Will Smith is even more charismatic than Robin Williams and this is the kind of role that's perfect for him (not action star), so I don't see why some are pessimistic about him.

I agree, this kind of won me over. Seems fun enough and will smith made me smile a few times. Although Jafar still seems way too young and barely menacing at all.

But then again I've recently come to realise I have really low standards for being entertained and can basically enjoy any old tripe. I've come to embrace this, it's liberating.

Is it worse that they cast a bunch of people who aren't, and don't look, Arabic or Persian? It's like they found the whitest/most Caucasian-looking brown people possible for the roles. Jasmine is half-white, half-Indian, for example. Feels weird in this time of calls for accurate representation in Hollywood by woke folks that the old "they're brown so they'll pass for Arabs/Persians" thing still works.

Eh, no.  This isn't working for me at all.  It all feels so Panto Season.  That whole trailer reeks of desperation on the part of Disney.  They've now resorted to including an extended clip of a song, followed by two or three separate trailers within the same promotional video; all of it based around nostalgia baiting.  I don't think that they have any more faith in this remake than cynical audience members like myself do.

Exactly.  The lyrics which were originally accompanied by amusing visuals in the animated version, such as "strong as ten regular men, definitely" are now accompanied by weak dance moves and nothing more.  This is undoubtedly because having the visuals present in the original animated version, wouldn't work in live action because they're too cartoony by nature.  Which rather perfectly summarises why even attempting to do a straight up live action remake of a beloved animated classic is a fundamentally broken concept and a fruitless (not to mention toothless) endeavour.

It’s not even limited singing skills that annoy me; I’d be happy if the studio could have the confidence to put out slightly weak singing voices or the odd duff note.  What I hate is the robotic autotune swaggering in to correct everyone.  It doesn’t make the voices more powerful, all it does is add a warble and a trill to underpowered voices that might be enduring if presented authentically.

The other option would be to have dedicated singers doing the songs, like they had for the original 2D versions of these films.  They seem to want it both ways - “This is non-singer Emma Watson’s actual singing voice - what a coup!” and pitch-perfect singing at the same time.  And in trying to do both, they fuck up both.

I am still baffled by the logic that led them to getting Guy Ritchie to direct this film

It's a conveyor belt production.  It wasn't created to put an artist's vision on screen, it was created in the hope of making an obscene amount of money, by way of appealing to the general public's wistful nostalgia for a film which was created to put an artist's vision on screen.  A writer wasn't inspired to pen a remake of Disney's Aladdin because they had a unique take on the story.  Disney decided to produce a remake and then hired and dictated to a screenwriter in order to bring their money spinner into fruition.  In creative terms, it's the equivalent of putting the cart before the horse, before setting fire to both cart and horse and then attempting to drunkenly stumble to your destination, before promptly falling into a bush of brambles and throwing up on yourself but of course, it's not about creativity.  It never was.  The movie's raison d'être is to milk the financial teat of an intellectual property.

On that note, Disney sought a director who would shut up and do as they're told.  The Aladdin remake isn't a Guy Ritchie movie.  It's a Disney movie; one designed by committee to appeal to the widest possible demographic.  There's no room for artistic interpretation here.  Can you imagine Stanley Kubrick or Alfred Hitchcock directing an Aladdin remake, starring wicky wicky Will Smith as the genie?  Of course not.  It's not only an absurd notion because they're dead but also because they had artistic integrity and wouldn't lower themselves to making a soulless corporate product.  Likewise, their contemporaries aren't going to be interested in doing so either.  What Disney needed was someone willing to toe the line and make their boardroom of executives' vision a reality.  They needed a competent errand boy and a recognisable name to put on the poster.  It's movie making at its most cynical and no director with artistic integrity is going to take the job.  Hence; Guy Ritchie.

The reviews are starting to come in.  It's currently sat at 63% on rotten tomatoes (expect that percentage to drop significantly within the coming weeks).  I want to highlight this review (https://www.aintitcool.com/guy-ritchie-aladdin-review-82182/) because the writer discusses the very thing which I addressed in the 'Man With Annoying Face Might Be New Batman' thread...

I can't stand it when writers write their characters as women.  What I mean by that, is when one of the character's key "personality traits" is defined as 'woman'.  I've always viewed Ellen Ripley in the Alien films as the gold standard of how to write for a female lead; that is to say that Ripley wasn't written as a female character.  None of the characters in the script for Alien were assigned genders and so all genders were considered when casting the film.  In doing so, audiences were treated to a female protagonist who's written as a human being, as opposed to 'woman'.  The result?  One of the, if not the greatest screen heroine in all of cinematic history; strong willed and prepared to take action when the going gets tough but also someone with a very humanistic philosophy and not once does the film draw attention to Ripley's gender.  She stands toe to toe with the men around her but is never dismissive to the opposite sex based upon their gender.  She commands respect by virtue of her strength of will alone.  Both women and men can find inspiration in Ellen Ripley.  Both women and men can look up to that character and aspire to be more like her in life.

At the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the trailer for Batwoman.  Women in real life don't go around constantly thinking 'I'm a woman' and informing every man that they happen upon of this fact, as though it were a revelation.  Not that you'd believe it, going by the trailer.  The audience is constantly reminded of the character's gender, to the point of absurdity (they even used a song with the lyrics 'I am a woman', for Christ's sake).  Not only is this bad writing but it's actually harmful in the long run because it's defining people by their gender and in doing so, creating a division between the sexes.  You cannot achieve unification through division.

Equally, pouring scorn on one gender with lines such as "I'm not about to let a man take credit for a woman's work" is not conducive to bringing about the winds of change.  If a misogynistic man were to watch this trailer and hear that line, it's not going to make him reflect on his worldview, it's only going to inspire him to dig his heels even further into the sand out of defiance.   As is so often the case with woke entertainment, it exists as a form of masturbatory material for those who are already woke.  Those same people tell themselves that this show is changing the world.  Newsflash, people; the bigots aren't watching the show.

To come back to that line; "I'm not about to let a man take credit for a woman's work".  Imagine if you will, that the roles were reversed and a male protagonist stated "I'm not about to let a woman take credit for a man's work".  Doesn't sound great coming from the mouth of a hero, does it?  So why is that kind of divisive writing given a free pass when it's a woman saying the line?  Historically, woman have been oppressed.  I get that.  However, two wrongs don't make a right.  How is oppressing people because of their gender, whether they be male or female, a good thing?  Black people have also been historically oppressed and yet would we condone that a black person go out into the world and vocalise their disgust at every white person that he or she encounters?  No, because it would be advocating racism.  Racism is racism, no matter the target.  Just as sexism is sexism, no matter the target.  Batwoman isn't progressive, it's one step forward, two steps back.  Alien is what a progressive portrayal of a woman looks like and is done in a way that may very well have actuality altered a few sexist men's worldviews along the way because it didn't preach to them in a lecturous manner.  That was all the way back in 1979.  I lament how far we've fallen since then, in terms of credible and relatable heroines.

I desire to watch characters who are human beings.  I desire to watch characters who I can relate to, regardless of gender.  I don't want to watch 'man' and 'woman'.  I want to watch people.

That new song linked to in the Aladdin review is fucking horrendous (it's as awful musically, as it is insincere and patronising.  Feminism by way of corporate pandering).  Hollywood really needs to stop it with this shit.

Arabian Nights from the new film is a passable cover musically, but the amount of autotune is shocking, really.

It's a musical for children, mind. Might give some small girls the old anime sparkle eyes. They'd probably tune out if it was like I can show you some stats/ of workplace patriarchal oppre-ssion

It's a family movie.  It's being marketed towards both children and adults.  Even if it were aimed squarely at children, that wouldn't negate any of my complaints.
