Aladdin Clip

Even though most Disney fans are probably much more excited about the prospect of The Lion King remake coming to theaters later this summer, one of the other studio’s remakes of an animated classic is arriving first.

Aladdin takes the beloved 1992 animated fantasy romance and brings it into the live-action word with newcomer Mena Massoud playing the titular street urchin who wants nothing more than to marry the beautiful princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott of Power Rangers). But he’ll need the help of the cool, blue genie (Will Smith) and maybe some luck to make it happen. Thankfully, things seem to be going his way in a new Aladdin clip that kicks off one of the most famous scenes from the original movie. Read More »

crshd review

Emojis and Tinder are the order of the day in CRSHD, an ode to millennial romance that juggles silliness and sincerity, though it occasionally drops the ball. Written and directed by Emily Cohn, the romantic-comedy follows a familiar formula: a group of close girlfriends vow to find love, especially for the ditzy protagonist who wants to lose her virginity before summer break, and find themselves getting into a series of hijinks over the course of one wild, booze-filled night.

But first-time feature director Cohn displays an intimate understanding of the inner workings of the college girl’s mind, helping to elevate CRSHD from the stale trappings of the genre and preventing it from taking on the patronizing tone that so many millennial comedies have adopted. The result is a charming coming-of-age comedy that manages to communicate a sweet message about friendship despite sometimes being buried by a visual barrage of texts and predictable plot conceits.
