Movie Quote of the Month
(The live action Disney) Aladdin will be helmed by British director Guy Ritchie...At least this new version will have a mostly South Asian/Middle Eastern cast, granted Disney reportedly said the casting process took a really long time because they had difficulty finding "a singing, dancing actor who is Middle Eastern or Indian to play the title role." Really Disney? Have you bothered to look into the many notable performers in Bollywood and Tollywood alone? You do realize that you've also used playback singers in your productions, right? Why is this suddenly a problem now?"
