Shawn's Top 30 Films - #14: Aladdin

Here’s another shining example as to why this is list called my favourite movies and not simply the best movies because I’ll go ahead and predict that a lot of people aren’t going to see eye to eye with me on this one.

Aladdin is another movie whose appeal to me is largely a nostalgia factor. From my four (!) theatrical viewings when it was in theatres, to my countless playthroughs of the both Super Nintendo and Genesis versions of the video game, to my use of allowance to buy the soundtrack on cassette, I have a ton of memories attached to this piece. Sure Robin Williams grates on my nerves far more now than back then, but it’s still a great movie and the soundtrack is no less terrific now. It’s my Disney film of choice and I don’t see it being dethroned of that status anytime soon.
