Mary Poppins Returns Reviews
Mary Poppins Returns, what can I say, I cried when I saw her coming down from the sky. I was immediately transported back to that 6 year old boy. I was in amazement. It was perfect. I am hoping that every little boy and girl who went to the movies to see it, will be as amazed as I was tonight. There will never be a remake of the original that could replace my fascination with Mary Poppins.
So, Mary Poppins Returnes, has just made a place just below and slightly to stage right of my heart. This wonderful movie has giver me back my childhood. Two separate movies for two separate generations that that are among the two best movies I have ever seen in my 60 years. Thank you Disney.
The film wasn't exact, but I'm not sure it was intended to be.
Emily Blunt was spot on. Her mannerisms, her impersonation of Julie Andrews' Poppins... Down to the blinks and head posture... Was perfect.
Lin was lovable. The major dance performance by Lin and the lamp lighters was a perfect tribute to the chimney sweep performed in the original film.
They incorporated new graphic technology as well as an old style animation as shown in the original. It made it believable as a sequel and it felt at times like a continuation of my old favorite.
Dick Van Dyke was incredible to see again. I admit I cried.
Overall, I thought it was masterfully done and my inner child is grateful for the sequel.
They made it into a Broadway play instead i literally felt lyr if it was a recording of a Broadway play
And who knew marry poppins teaches you to break in to someones house when they dont want to open the door .
The cast was great and contrary to a lot of critics I saw I found the children to be very good (at least for children). They were definitly better than the children in the original, in my opinion. Loved Emilys Mary and there is little Lin can do wrong as I love him dearly.
Definitly a movie you can watch!
Remember that Savings Mr Banks movie where PL Travers is worried that Disney will destroy the Mary Poppins character? This is the movie she was worried they would make.
The fake accents will keep you up at night
I wont spoil it for others but I'll give you my general take on it and how it conflicts with others.
Marvel has some fun with the movie. Ive seen this trend with guardians of the galaxy and am glad they continue to do it.
Marvel isnt an over-the-top mary sue like Star Wars, but she IS op at the end. This is basically Marvel's version of superman. Most of the movie you dont see how OP she is, but when it all comes together you can see what is up.
The movie is better than age of ultron. Age of ultron was such a snooze and yet seeing some commenters say they are on the same level - i disagree.
I found the movie better than black panther and equally as forgettable. I find most marvel movies fun to watch once a year or so -except iron man 3- and this one fits that bag.
Fury's eye story was lazy.
The cat's cgi was as low-budget as black panther to the point i noticed it too much.
The cat comedy relief was "ok" to me but I noticed the audience loved it, so maybe im in the minority.
The feminist thing doesnt state women are better than men, rather that women can do it too. Nothing offensive there.
Bri Larson was pretty good. I thought it would look forced as others have suggested but I didnt see it.
Tbh. This isnt the ghost busters reboot or last jedi. Its a campy fun movie with some 90s nostalgia thrown in for good measure.
Id rate it slightly better than the average marvel movie but not the best.
