    • Aladdin's 2160p/HDR UHD, framed at 2.39:1, is something akin to a nuts-and-bolts presentation for the format. It offers the obligatory light textural upgrades, modest improvements to sharpness, and general...

    • Aladdin's UHD Dolby Atmos soundtrack isn't wholly dissimilar from the Blu-ray's DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 lossless soundtrack. It requires that all-but-obligatory upward volume knob movement from calibrated...

    • It's no surprise that Disney is on the top of the moviemaking world right now. The box office-busting numbers are staggering, and it's not just because the company has absorbed so many popular properties....

    • Aladdin makes for a fun little diversion and a nice compliment to the original animated film. It's well cast and its visuals are everything one would expect of a live action Aladdin translation. It's not...

    • The live-action remake takes a magic carpet ride to the new world of Ultra HD with a great-looking if also somewhat ordinary HEVC H.265 encode that ultimately doesn't look much different to its day-and-date...

    • On its own, Aladdin (2019) is a passable but ultimately forgettable musical fantasy, a mix of visual delights disguising some rather banal music, some middling performances, and an uninspiring story. Compared...

    • The film was shot with a specific visual aesthetic in mind and that comes through in both its 1080p and Ultra HD presentations. This is a fantasy-based film that is essentially boldly colorful throughout,...
