Side note, but I completely agree with you about Supernatural. My partner is still a bonafide watcher,
but I can take or leave it, now. I think it's gone a year (or more) past it's "freshness label". :wink:

Note to Self:

Once Poppins 2.0 is out on DVD, this will complete an interesting trio of Poppins-related films....

Mary Poppins ~ Saving Mr.Banks ~ Mary Poppins Returns

It's practically perfect in every way! :angel:

^ I really enjoyed Saving Mr. Banks, too, but I tend to react negatively whenever some big aspect of history is altered in a movie to imply a significantly different outcome. In real life, Travers hated the final product and swore to never do business with Disney again, whereas the film depicted her as becoming emotional and moved by Banks's redemption. I understand the need for certain aspects of dramatic license, like condensing timelines or creating composite characters because of time constraints, but I'm not a fan of when movies choose to depict completely different outcomes than those of what happened in real life. Same reason I have issues with Frost/Nixon - Nixon never admitted to a cover-up in the interviews!

That said, the performances, especially those of Hanks and Thompson, were amazing, and it's really difficult for me to not be moved during scenes involving "Let's Go Fly a Kite".

I generally don't see movies in theaters much anymore, but I hope to see Mary Poppins Returns before its run ends.

^ This seems to be happening with a lot of current movies, thru social media. There are "problems" that did indeed happen during some kind of process for the movie, stage play/musical, etc. That they do intentionally leave out the obvious note-of-history, doesn't really help the current film. But like someone asked, "what can you pack into a two hour film that explains...everything?"

But for myself, I just "let it go" (ha!) and just enjoy what's put in front of me, onscreen.

That's huge, congratulations! It must feel pretty insane to be a part of a movie that won a freaking Golden Globe. How lucky are you??

Gonna list a couple quick reviews of movies I saw in the last month

Aquaman: Attended a pre-screening. Exactly what I wanted from it as a fan of the character.

Mary Poppins Returns: Fun, and Emily Blunt/Lin-Manuel Miranda were probably the best candidates to replace Julie Andrews/Dick Van Dyke.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse: One of the best Spider-Man films made.

Bumblebee: This is what fans wanted from the beginning, Michael Bay! Unfortunately, it seems too late to save the franchise. I also did not have my glasses on when I saw it, so thank you Travis Knight for not making my eyes bleed.

so just saw "Moana" for the first time (on Disney Channel) and LOVED it.

so regret that it took me *this* long to see such a fantastic film. (yeah, even with the pee joke).

decent songs, spectacular animation. will be buying this on BLU.
