Sorry for the delay since my last post, I’m trying to keep up with this a bit more as a personal goal. Now that the holidays are over, things should be a bit easier.
Before I ramble on too much, let’s jump back into the topic. Even with all the holiday madness, I still managed to catch a few movies. And like before, these won’t be formal reviews. Just my random rambles about them all.
Mary Poppins Returns
Oh my goodness this movie! I am a unabashed Disney movie fan,* and Mary Poppins is one of my favorites ever. Hearing about any potential sequel, yes even a reboot. I find myself hopeful that we could get something different and even possibly something better.
But this is Mary Poppins after all, but then I heard some potential good news. The first was that the estate of the original author of the Mary Poppins book series had given their approval to the project. Then Julie Andrews herself and Dick Van Dyke both of which gave blessings to as well. But I admit I was still nervous sitting down and watching it.
I am so glad to say that my worries were completely and totally unfounded. What a simply magical movie that I enjoyed immensely in every way. Music, characters, story, just everything in this movie worked so very well. An absolutely must see immediately!
So this one I also was hopeful with, having grown up with the Generation 1 animated series. But the previous live actions films were I thought anywhere from dang good to meh. But again good news was this was supposed to be a new look and feel. And being a lifelong fan of Bumblebee, I decided I had to give this a try.
I am so very glad I did so, as I was extremely pleased with this one. And if you will allow my inner kid to squee, holy cow the opening battle was amazing!! No spoilers ever but he makes his way to Earth and there are adventures to be had.
All of which were great fun with Autobot and human. And I would love a reboot or re-skin of the first live-action Transformers with the character models from this film. Also highly recommended when it arrives.
So I have reached the end of this post, that has also been much delayed since I originally was working on it. I deeply apologize for anyone who might be reading my little blog. But I am hoping to honestly turn this into an ongoing project of this and that. More updates soon.
* I am not saying that Disney is a perfect company. All I am saying is that I am a huge fan of various Disney movies.
