Movie Review: Mary Poppins Returns
February 10, 2019 4:04pm CST
I have to say upfront, I never saw the original Mary Poppins so I was not comparing the two movies, I was just enjoying the new version with Lin-Manuel Miranda and Emily Blunt. I found the movie quite entertaining, the singing was good, the kids were adorable, Meryl Streep was odd, to say the least, and I have never before seen Colin Firth looking anything but drop-dead gorgeous before. Once I got over the shock of Colin being a meany, I thoroughly enjoyed the film. The cameo at the end by Dick Van Dyke was charming and perhaps the best moment of the film I am very glad that I went to see it and now I think it is about time that I saw the original. I would say this is a good film for the whole family to enjoy.

I want to see this movie and was so glad it is not a remake in the sense of a remake but having the kids from theorignal as grown ups and Mary returns to help from what I have seen in the previews. When it comes out on DVD there will probably have a package deal where you can get both the original and the new one.
