They’re pissed about the social commentary, which is the exact same reason why it’s fans love and praise it. The Critical Consensus pretty much sums it up.

Whew! This just CONFIRMS audiences know better sometimes and this is proven AGAIN with Aladdin 2019. WOW!

Nope. They gave it a 54% on Rotten Tomatoes. As this, Game of Thrones, and The Last Jedi probz, audiences tend to be wrong and hate on movies that actually challenge them and expect them to think.

We have a payload to deliver to the heart of our nearest star. We are delivering that payload cause that star is dying and, if it dies, we die, everything dies. So that is our mission, there is nothing, literally nothing, more important than completing our mission. End of story.

*57 actually, but I was talking about the audience who gave it a 94% relating the impact of Aladdin to the fact that you said the fans love the social commentary - to confirm that sometimes, the audience knows better than critics. Proving my point!

I was talking about the audience underrating Funny Games, which they gave a 54% because the general viewing public don't appreciate the movie either.

Currently planning on rewatching this in the near future. I've only seen it like...once, and that was back when it was still relatively new. Something tells me I'd appreciate it a lot more now than I did when I was 13-14.
