"Love this write-up,and love Southland Tales in all its loopy glory."-Ben1283

"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

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.

Then another dissolve takes us to the foot of stairs,with Aladdin about to step into the heart of the cave.It's a swift,visually-driven way of taking us down into… Hell?It's hard to say just yet,but it creates a terrific sense of mystery,both promising and foreboding...

Aladdin Pt 1: The 'street rat' and the princess with an edge

Three-Part Mini-Series
Occasionally we'll take a movie and baton pass it around the team and really dive in.If you missed past installments we've gone long and deep onRebecca,Silence of the Lambs,Thelma & Louise,Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf,A League of Their Own,andRosemary's Babyin the past.-Editor


Part 1 by Ben Miller

Welcome to Team Film Experience'sAladdinRetrospective.This film was a big part of my childhood and I'm proud to join in on the fun to revisit it with you before the live-action remake hits.Disney in the 1990s might have been the animated studio's peak.They were coming off the surprise success ofThe Little Mermaidin 1989 follwed by the monster hit and then-historic Best Picture nominee ofBeauty and the Beastin 1991.The massive success ofAladdinthe very next year felt like a commercial/critical apex (at least untilThe Lion Kingarrived two years later).

0:00:26 – Alan Menken probably does not get enough credit for the score he put together.Yes,he won an Oscar for it,but it doesn't get put into the conversation enough for GREAT animated scores.
