Jafar's voice is more comical than Will Smith as the Genie.

I'm sure they're all great actors and actresses, but this just looks like a bunch of bad decisions. Marwan Kenzari's voice and presence is hardly even a fifth of what Jonathan Freeman's was as Jafar. Mena Massoud doesn't strike me as a good fit for what I imagine a live-action version of Aladdin to be. Will Smith is just not funny as the Genie.

I honestly don't know if this is just me with my Nostalgia Glasses on or just me not liking a movie that doesn't have Robin Williams.

Last time I did mushrooms was 4/20 at 4:20 in the morning in 2007

I had a bad trip and basically said never again.

Id probably be down now though if the situation presented itself. Id never actively seek it out though

it can happen, best to have someone keep you level headed, don't let a bad trip scare you away.

I haven't seen a good new movie for a while. I think need a good recommendation. The less cgi the better.

And they somehow managed to make Will Smith, one of the most charismatic humans, look creepy and gross

the thing is...the genie is supposed to look very cartoony and non-human.

will smith is one of the most easily recognizable people so I don't see a "genie" I just see will smith.

Will Smith as the genie I dont even think is a bad decision (they need someone famous who will put their own character on it like Robin Williams did) but the CGI looks awful.

However by far the worst part is Jafar's voice. Holy fucking hell how did anyone think that was good casting.

I think this movie will bomb just because of the genie CGI. People will see in the trailers that it looks like a Disney Channel Original Movie, and pass.

To be fair, if you saw a dumpster on fire, wouldn't you want to stop and watch it for a little while?

Funny you say this. I saw a dumpster fire on my way home from work a few months ago and I stopped to watch it for a bit while I called the fire department.

To be clear: I don't think that the cgi looks bad, in fact, I think it looks great.
It's just that it's a bad idea and none of the other movies have been good.

Gaston was at least cosplay quality.

This is like a slashfic reimagining of Jafar.

Jafar's voice is more comical than Will Smith as the Genie.

He sounds like a twelve y/o pretending to be a bad gay stereotype

Genie looks awful, but Im more upset by Jafars voice. Will Smith at least sounded like he was trying in spite of being the wrong casting choice, but this guy is the wrong casting choice and he sounds like he doesnt want to be there. Someone you would just give the finger to and walk away without worrying about any consequences for doing so.

The animated version at least sounded menacing when he was angry and chilling when he was calm.
