MIM: Aladdin

This weekend, Disney's live-action Aladdin will be screening in McConomy Auditorium. The retelling of the beloved 1992 animated film features Will Smith as the legendary Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin, and Naomi Scott as Jasmine. For lovers of the original film, this movie may not live up to the magic of the original tale — a tale of a charismatic "street rat" who unleashes a genie and pursues a princess and, quite frankly, crushes "One Jump Ahead". Unfortunately, this retelling may seem to be plotless, even lumbering aimlessly and confusedly at points. But, while the film may lack the good storytelling and inspiration of the original, it's all-star cast is all-attractive. So if you want to stare at a bunch of super hot people for two hours, I'd definitely recommend!
