Noviy Aladdin: Directed by Ivan Davydov. With Vladimir Etush, Vsevolod Larionov, Vasiliy Livanov, Aleksandr Shirvindt. Animation is a kind of parody of the famous fairy tale about Aladdin and the magic lamp. Heroes of the old eastern fairy tale authors have placed in our time. Alas, but modern Aladdin is not at all the charming, cheerful and hardworking poor whom everyone loved so much. The hero is lazy and selfish, but he knows the tale of his distant ancestor well, so when an evil sorcerer comes to him, he is not lost, takes the magic lamp from the vault and becomes the master of the almighty Genie, the lamp-slave. The goal of the guy is to become the son-in-law of the Sultan. He does not mind, but he needs to complete tasks and show what he is capable of in his life.
“This is my all-time favorite movie. Iu0026#39;ve probably watched it 300 times and I can recite it line by line. I once wrote the script during the course of one semester in a class I hated. I still have the notebook.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eDemi Moore definitely is the filmu0026#39;s weakest link, but the acting is superb and Aaron Sorkinu0026#39;s story sucks you in from the opening minute. There is so much great dialogue, headlined by Tom Cruiseu0026#39;s courtroom battle with Jack Nicholson at the movieu0026#39;s climax.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eToo many people say the movie is average because itu0026#39;s u0026quot;too slow,u0026quot; but I really believe anyone who appreciates good acting and good stories has to put this one near the top of their list.”
