My movie-year of 2019 started with a cinema trip to see the Mary Poppins sequel. Which was, I found, good. Not great, by any definition, but hardly a waste of time, either, which it so easily could have been. Very adherent to the tone of the original, it is perhaps a bit too revering to add much personality of its own. It doesn't have the strong emotional throughline of the classic, nor does it quite manage to capture its sense of joyful whimy. But the songs are quite good, there are definite moments of pathos here and there (Michael's song to his late wife is particularly heartbreaking, to me at least), and it's just different enough not to feel like a rehash. In today's landscape of endless remakes and unnecessary sequels, this one lands firmly in the "I really don't mind that they made this" category, and if the more updated pace and look can charm new generations of children to go back and watch the old one, then all the better. Also, I suppose that when they inevitably make a third one, be it this decade or in five, there will be some room for innovation there, having (probably wisely) played it safe with this one. ( )

This was an enjoyable family film for a Boxing Day evening. Just fun and makes you smile. ( )

Fitting for a film predicated on the importance of imagination, a song dedicated to the wonder of books. Overall, we enjoyed this return to Cherry Tree Lane. ( )
