    how on eaarth is a genie real?

  • metallavery  (May 10, 2019))

    It's amazing, and any one againstis are a monster.

  • Charles Owens  (Feb 15, 2019))

    The thing is, CGI ages poorly. Animation is timeless.

  • Arvak777  (1 hour ago))

    No you just notice bad CGI. Good CGI should be seamless and nearly indistinguishable from traditional media.

  • Kharizmah  (13 hours ago))

    +Bot 13 Part of it is definitely the CGI, Scooby Doo Monsters Unleased verses Scooby Doo Mystery Begins. Is a great example of a degradation in animation. But most of it is the story.

    He is not a genie.... He is Blue Will Smith

    More like a Blue Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

    They won't stop because Money. Disney have way too many gullible fans.

    +Peruvian Mapping That's just your personal taste. I'm not going to belittle your taste, but so many other people on here are calling people who enjoy the remakes "gUllibLe" when it's just personal taste either way.

  • Peruvian Mapping  (6 hours ago))

    +stillwatersrundeep Yeah, the same stories but with boring, creepy and waterdowned difference

  • Natalie Rose  (Mar 9, 2019))

    The reboot of Aladdin just looks like a bad cosplay

  • EveryPixelCounts  (Feb 22, 2019))

    I'm tired of remakes and sequels...we need a new studio to emerge and bring along new ideas

  • Juan Cisneros  (15 hours ago))

    +jbroti 004 the MCU started in 2008. The idea evolved since 2006. Disney bought Marvel in 2010. So. . .

  • Billy Batson  (15 hours ago))

    +jbroti 004 -- Disney didn't acquire Marvel until after Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk had been released. Just for the record. :-)

  • Takemi Corrado  (Feb 14, 2019))

    I wish Disney would remake their underrated/forgotten movies instead like Black Cauldron, Treasure Planet, or Atlantis. They all have mostly human characters so adapting them in photorealistic/live-action movies would go a lot smoother and look a lot better.

  • Peruvian Mapping  (6 hours ago))

    No, they should just dump live action altogether

  • EpicJason X9000  (10 hours ago))

    +tHewaNNabeAsiaNreDNeck 19903 exactly. and so far, Disney has gotten none of them right. while remakes aren't bad in and of itself, they have gotten lazier and extremely unoriginal as time went on. the problem with Disney remaking their animated classics is that it's just a live action version of the animated films, and that's it. there's no reason or justification for it. a remake should be able to do it's own thing, have more to say, or attempt to be closer to the original source material. the best e...

    "Creating animation means creating a fictional world. That world soothes the spirit of those who are disheartened and exhausted from dealing with the sharp edges of reality." - Hayao Miyazaki

  • Adam Slocum  (Feb 22, 2019))

    Animation went from "lets pour our hearts into this movie and make a bit of money too" to now "PRODUCE MORE TO MAKE MORE MONEY"

  • joshua miller  (Feb 23, 2019))

    No one ever points out the REAL reason these Disney remakes suck. It's not the mediocre singing. It's not the CGI replacing 2d animation. Neither of those "issues" could single-handedly break a great movie. The REAL problem with these remakes is that they add ZERO new or interesting layers to what they're based on. It's basically all beat-for-beat and it's soulless because of it.

    +Angie "Why change mediums for a remake of an animated classic?" Are you suggesting that if they want to do remakes, they should make them animated again? Wouldn't that be truly redundant and meaningless?Live-action is not cheaper than animation. The budgets of the remakes outstrip the originals and surpass or equal new Disney/Pixar cartoons, so that argument is rendered invalid. They're not saving any money.So, why do it? Stories are universal, but film is a *visual* medium - the goal of a...

    +Fera Flauna Have a little perspective and get that *very little in any story* is "necessary". You getting all triggered about things that do no harm just means you're an angry person, not that the details were bad. It's called filling in the lore (Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast) or exploring a different perspective (Maleficent). Maleficent isn't even supposed to be a close remake, it's a parallel story. Btw, Maleficent was not raped, she was seduced but consenting.
