MARY POPPIN'S RETURN Review: This movie needs a child girl's hand

Do not forget to buy your copy of the Disney Live-Action Commemorative Issue of Birth.Movies.Death.! Perhaps the most remarkable achievement in Mary Poppins Returns is that the film bends a thin premise to an excuse for this sequel to exist in the first place. It's an airy candy without any real weight or point of view, although several songs emphasize the value of finding a new perspective. I suppose it's a new way of looking at things, in this case it's a sequel to Mary Poppins may not be completely unnecessary if you just trip and twist and maybe head on your head. So when Lamplighter Jack, played by Hamilton Feeling Lin-Manuel Miranda, opens the movie songs about "The Wonderful London Sky" during a wan, ash, that's a bit of irony. It's like the movie itself plays Mary Poppins with a shrug. "This will happen in one way or another, could as well do the best." Director / Choreographer Rob Marshall and his team make the most of it. It includes hiring Emily Blunt, whose ability to turn a strong look into a conspiracy look precisely captures Poppin's essence.

Perhaps the most remarkable achievement in Mary Poppins Returns is that the film bends a thin premise to an excuse for this sequel to exist in the first place. It’s an airy candy without any real weight or point of view, although several songs emphasize the value of finding a new perspective. I suppose it’s a new way of looking at things, in this case it’s a sequel to Mary Poppins may not be completely unnecessary if you just trip and twist and maybe head on your head. So when Lamplighter Jack, played by Hamilton Feeling Lin-Manuel Miranda, opens the movie songs about “The Wonderful London Sky” during a wan, ash, that’s a bit of irony. It’s like the movie itself plays Mary Poppins with a shrug. “This will happen in one way or another, could as well do the best.”

Director / Choreographer Rob Marshall and his team make the most of it. It includes hiring Emily Blunt, whose ability to turn a strong look into a conspiracy look precisely captures Poppin’s essence. She is clever parade with Miranda, who develops such an innocent good nature that he could be prescribed as a medical cure for cynicism.

Writer David Magee turns the clock forward for a couple of decades from the period of the first movie to London of “The Great Falls.” The only true evidence of depression is, however, that the Banks Bank is on the brink of economic destruction. That problem is not even entirely linked to the world’s problems, but to Michael Bank’s own personal shortcomings. He was never good with money &#821

1; he is a artist The only evidence is some extras – and after his wife’s death things have really been taken into account.

Michael Banks are played by the prominent Ben Whishawen, have a ridiculous mustache and a little oversized suit, both of which emphasize the idea that banks are just a big child. Whishaw is charming enough that Michael’s general lack of noticeable character will not be a problem until the movie is well into his second hour. (And I just thought about Paddington two or three times.)

Mary Poppins Returns is such a fantasy that quibbling too much if plot seems right next to the point. Most of the time, it crosses the single high point when it’s time for a new cameo – like Meryl Streep as a distant Poppin’s relative, who plays his role as a Hayao Miyazaki witch released in a Broadway musical – or any moment as allows Blunt or Miranda to turn around

Such a sequence is “A Cover Is Not The Book”, a tune-up vaudeville number with just a grid of grind and grind, sung inside a ceramic bowl that becomes an animated fantasy country. This is one of the few chances for Blunt to make her own character, and for Miranda to do what Hamilton long proved to be the best. Their performances make life a reality movie. The sequence does not feel exactly like it could be part of the original Mary Poppins – and there may therefore be no more things like that in the new movie.

The fact is that “A cover is not the book” points to the primary issue of Mary Poppins Returns which is that it focuses much more on “Mary Poppins” than “Returns.” The 1964 movie is used as a template like New movie strictly follows. There is live-action / animated sequence, a llamplighter dance, a side visit on an upside down, and so on. No songs are repeated exactly, probably because it would limit the movie’s Oscar chances, but it does not diminish the impression that this movie has been tracked over the old one.

Fantasy and whims become much less amazing and whimsical when copying and repeating. The original movie, with effects and animation, felt like a sales scale for what Disney could do. This sequel is a confirmation that the audience wants something that the studio no longer creates. The solution is obviously simple: makes more movies like Mary Poppins – but maybe not more movies as accurate as Mary Poppins as possible. By doing so, you only see that the cover is actually the book.
