Re: Rate / Review the Last Film you've seen v.3

Mary Poppins Returns--well, it isn't as good as the original Mary Poppins, but it was cute. Emily Blunt did as good a job as anyone not named Julie Andrews could do as Mary Poppins, and Lin-Manuel Miranda was his typical amazing self as her friend Jack. The next generation of Banks children was entertaining, none of them a clone of the previous movie's children. The adult Michael and Jane were okay, but kind of boring. There were a lot of callbacks to the original movie, both in direct references and in elements that were clearly inspired by the first film. The songs were not as catchy as the Sherman Brothers' originals, but they were still good in their own right. Overall, I enjoyed it and will probably watch it again; it wasn't quite as magical as the original, but it's still very well done and entertaining.
