Aladdin Pt 2: Manic Magical Improv,Sight Gags,and "Prince Ali"

InPart 1of our re-watch of Disney'sAladdin(the proper one,from 1992,not the live-action thing coming out this weekend) Ben got us through the introductions to good-hearted "street rat"Aladdin,frustrated princess Jasmine,and up to the mouth of the Cave of Wonders.We enter as Aladdin takes his first step into a whole new world…

Part 2 by Tim Brayton

0:28:04 – Let's take just a minute to appreciate the atmospheric concision of this descent into the cave.First,we had a shot of Aladdin stepping over the tiger-god's teeth,dissolving into this beautiful wide shot of him (below) at the top of an impossible flight of stairs,a tiny bright dot in the overall gloom that shifts from cold blue to hot,threatening red as our eye glides down the lines of the composition.

MTV Movie & TV Award Nominees!

Chrishere.You may have missed awhile back but the MTV Movie Awards have added television into its ceremony.While that news may sound like a "Golden Globes for the Instagram set"proposition,the results are much more muddied.

For starters,outside of the top categories movies and television are nominated alongside each other - which makes for some headspining lineups like "Tearjerker".As if the current murky waters of what defines cinema and television weren't frustrating enough already for those of us that follow awards,this awards show has just thrown caution to the wind.They've always fallen on the populist and occasionally silly side but this is essentially bonkers...
