Aladdin

Action up the yin-yang.

During its creative rebirth in the ’90s, Disney animation scored with soaring songs, memorable characters, and some tear-inducing imagery.

But nothing, not The Lion King or Beauty and the Beast, or anything in between, matches Aladdin for pure old-fashioned excitement.

The camera flies like it has wings, tracking our favorite hood rat as he risks life and limb, staying one step ahead of evil, scheming Jafar, and various ancient curses running amuck.

Robin Williams forever redefined what voice-over work could be, but this is Indiana Jones-level escapades, and I love every frantic second.
