The Lego Movie is Better Than Aladdin
Debate Rounds (4)
The Lego Movie is my favorite movie. Aladdin is tied versus it.
Con will argue Aladdin is better than The Lego Movie.
Round one is for acceptance only.
"Aladdin" was one of 10 films released during the "Disney Renaissance," a 10-year period from 1989-1999 during which animated Disney films regained critical and financial success. "Aladdin" has proven to be one of Disney's most successful franchises, spawning video games, theme park attractions and direct-to-video sequels. Fun fact: Dan Castellaneta, the voice of Homer Simpson, replaced Robin Williams as the voice of Genie in the sequel, "The Return of Jafar."
The Lego Movie makes as much sense as Inception does. You have to open your brain up and concentrate every single moment (except for the comedy moments) in order to tell what in the universe is going on.
Here, let me feed it to you:
A normal builder named Emmet is confused to be "The Special", the one that will save legos from being attacked by the "kragle", later revealed to be super glue. You have to think super hard to make the connection that the father later presented by the film loves perfection and super-glues the lego pieces together, inspiring his son to create this imaginary story of a losing battle between Emmet and Lord Business--a representation of the actual Son and father. It is because this movie is so complicated and hard to understand that it is a good movie. Similar to Inception, you don't understand the movie because the movie was very complex and had plot intertwining with other plots. Although the Lego Movie was not as complex as Inception, it still is more complex than Aladdin, as Aladdin was quite clear--Poor boy falls in love with princess, Jafar, the evil one, attempts to get the poor boy (Aladdin) to retrieve the lamp so that he can rule the kingdom. He ultimately succeeds in getting the lamp and ruling the kingdom, but fails again due to his greediness.
Now, other than the complexity of the films, I argue that the villain in The Lego Movie was more complex than Jafar. Although both "could be seen from a mile away", Jafar depended on his hypnotizing skills, later the genie, to do his evil business. The "Man Upstairs", however, was a different villain--he really wasn't one in the first place! (Which is why it's "heart-warming") You see, he just loved perfection and hated his son's creativity and choas. However, when his son stood up to him and had the courage to see the good in his father... "it doesn't have to be this way. You can join me!" This was not lame at all. In fact, it was very heart-warming, and I nearly cried at this scene, because it was so intense and the son was hanging by a thread...But his father saw that his son was really creative. Because the father was oppresing and attempting to push his son down, it only encouraged big creations and imagination. The father finally saw that he really shouldn't be forcing his son to be perfect, in place, forever in the same setup, but rather, let his creativity flow.
What's even better, the Lego Movie was more humorous than Aladdin. Aladdin had a billion references, that only very few I got, while even if you don't get the references in the Lego Movie, it's still funny--Emmet meeting up with the "pretty woman in black" and falling in love so bad he couldn't concentrate on what she was saying, Batman's quotes about working in the dark and how he snuck up upon Emmet many many times without noticing, and even after the heart-warming solution, the film was hilarious--the ending. Now, because the father allowed his son's creativity to flow, he allowed the sister as well, which, in other words, is "the solution just caused another problem". This leads to the hilarious and suspenseful "cliffhanger" conclusion--
The sister's "Duplo Blocks": "WE ARE HERE TO TAKE OVER." (or something like that)
Batman: "Oh, no."
As you can see the Lego Movie was clearly a better movie than Aladdin.
1. better music
2. Broadway material
3. its not piece trash dish out by storyline.
Aladdin is better
