    Mary Poppins is my favourite childhood film so really didn't like the idea of revisiting it. However watched it today and thought it was good. Emily Blunt is quite wonderful and Lin-Manuel Miranda was excellent, the ending was very good. I thought that Ben Whishaw was miscast (too theatrical!), and would rather have Mr Banks played by Colin Firth.

    In comparison to the 1964 film however the songs were very weak.

    We only went to the movie theater about 7 or 8 times in 2018. Because of that, I don't feel invested in any of the forthcoming awards shows. We are, however, planning an Academy Award party in the Booth Bijou Garage Theater. And we plan to see more films in theaters in 2019.

    Anyway, to the topic at hand... We saw 'Mary Poppins Returns' today and we absolutely loved it. The musical numbers had me tapping my toe for nearly the entire film. I was clearly in the right mood for the film!

    The Booth Bijou gives 'Mary Poppins Returns' 4.5 out of 5 stars. We will definitely be showing it the Garage Theater when it is released on 4K Blu-ray.

    If you read the article about "Mary Poppins 3" it says they are tossing ideas around and how it depends on how "Mary Poppins Returns" does. It is not doing the kind of business to warrant a sequel when it comes with a $130million price tag.

    Saw it again with my wife. She laughed and cried and was thoroughly entertained. Me too. In fact, this is my favorite movie of 2018.
