Movie Review: Mary Poppins Returns

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.

My sister took her daughter to see it and said that it was pretty good. I'll watch it when it comes out on Netflix. The original is definitely worth watching!

I probably wouldn't have gone to see it but my daughter was here visiting and she wanted to see it so I went with her, and I am glad I did, I will watch the original when I get the chance.

Thanks, we do like to actually see a movie in the theater once in a while, especially here in Florida where the theater is particularly nice.

It is a family-friendly movie with no violence or bad language, a rarity these days.

@BelleStarr This is the kind of movies we need, there is enough violence in real world.

I saw the original and really liked Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins. Generally I don't like remakes but maybe I'll give it a look see when Amazon offers it.

It isn't a remake, it is more of a continuation.

But Julie Andrews isn't Mary Poppins so to me it means remake @BelleStarr I'll have to watch it to see if it fits that description.

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.
