6-C THE TIMES RECORDER SUN. DEC. 0, 1992 r V 1 'Aladdin' is a stunning, must-see Disney feature Robin Williams steals the show The Sultan's evil vizier, Jafar, gives his molting parrot sidekick, lago, a disapproving glare. The film "Aladdin" is Disney's 31st full-length ani mated feature. The film has an original score by composer Alan Menken. (Photo provided by The Walt Disney Co.) No one can say those folks at Disney aren't marketing geniuses. Hot on the heels of "Beauty and the Beast" video release, already an industry record-breaker, comes a brand new wunderkind of animated entertainment: "Aladdin." Once again the animation is stunning with vivid, beautiful colors throughout, perfectly balanced in every respect. Unlike most contemporary cartoons, "Aladdin's" background are as rich in texture and detail as the foreground. Robin Williams steals the show, providing the voice(s) for a rambunctious genie that is rather tired of his claustrophobic lifestyle. The animation here is superb, rapidly changing with William's frantic comedy style. It's as though Williams was ad-libbing (something he does better than anyone) and the animation keeps up with him. Another show-stealer is the voice of Gilbert Gottfried as a wisecracking parrot. Gottfried is perfectly suited for this fun assignment, and he's more tolerable as an animated bird than as a live person. "Aladdin" makes one huge mistake, similar to another re cent Disney release that flopped over dead: "Newsies." The songs are simply OK, and not even close to te excellent music and lyrics found in "Beauty and the Beast." Regardless, the film is so magical and funny that I can easily accept "Aladdin" for what it is: a great animated feature and one of the best films of the year. Rated " G " family entertainment. TR Rating A (Brown reviews filma and videos for The Times-Recorder. Films screened at the Colony Square Cinema 10) Poets9 Corner Christmas! One of the important holidays of the year To me is Christmas! Not 'cause of the trees! Not 'cause of the presents! Not 'cause of seeing family! Not 'cause of the food! The most important holiday of the year To me is Christmas! Cause of the true meaning of Christmas! It's the day the Christ-child was born in a manger! The day when the star shown over the stable in Bethlehem! The day the wise men came to see the baby Jesus bearing gifts for our king! The day the shepherds came! This to me is the meaning of Christmas day. By Theresa M. Boyd Plea to Mother Nature Mother nature please give us a break My garden has taken all the rain it can take. The cisterns are full, the reservoirs up My basement is flooded, it's rained enough! Summer is halfway over and done I want to enjoy some dry summer fun. Like fishing and camping, picnics in the park Without fear of getting an electrical shock I want to hear crickets and sit 'neath the stars without hearing thunder roll in for hours I'd like to plan something and be able to go without storm warnings or flood watches, ya know? I want to go swimming without running to shore to escape lightning and a sudden downpour. So please Mother Nature, give us a few dry sunny weekends, there's a lot we can do. By C. Van Matre Reality Answers aren't always given To those who must give up dreams Reality just makes us pause and rearrange some things. Answers seem to elude the most contemplative mind. Looking back on many years the reasons we can't find. By Sue Fulkerson and published by the National Library of Poetry Nothing I'm just sitting here with nothing, not a clue not nothing I never try I just do nothing: But when I try I just might come up with something But nah, I'll never come up with something I'll always have nothing: By Nick Campbell, age 13 West Muskingum Middle School A Nice Thought The sun is beautiful just like you and a cool piece of ice In the summer heat. The weather is nice just like that cool piece of ice and the cool breeze settling the air, that all would be nice. By Nick Campbell Hold Up The Flag When we're in a foreign country we represent our land If we treat the people with dignity They'll think that we are grand We let them know we value life and our love of liberty When suppressed cry out in pain to us we answer to their plea. Hold up the flag never let it touch the ground If we can keep the flag up they'll never get us down. There are ways that we can hold it up other than on a pole By treating people with respect wherever we may go By being strong and being fair and full of integrity We'll find we're holding up our flag for all the world to see By Charlotte Ford (Won Golden Poet award in 1991 from World of Poetry and honorable mention in poetry contest same year.)
