I saw Mary Poppins Returns with Mum on Thursday. The movie was good in some parts and it was really bad in other parts of the movie.
I thought Emily Blunt did well as Mary Poppins. Also I thought Lin-Manuel Miranda did an excellent job as Jack in the movie. Dick Van Dyke even made an appearance at the end of the movie which was special. Dick Van Dyke is 93 and he was very impressive. Angela Lansbury who is also 93 was in it and played the Balloon Seller at the end of the Movie. Also the children in the Movie were terrific.
The story was about the Banks family who were going to lose their house and the bank manager was very nasty.
It was a long movie, over 2 hours, which was too long. The animated part went on too long and so did some of the dancing scenes.
The songs in the Movie were good, happy songs but the songs didn’t compare to the originals like Supercalifragilisticexpalidocious, A Spoonful of Sugar, Feed the Birds and Let’s Fly a Kite. The costumes were very colorful and beautiful but it still didn’t compare to the original.
I rated the movie 5 Stars out of 10. It is one of my lowest ratings for a movie ever. It didn’t compare to the original with Julie Andrews and the many iconic songs.
