Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

(If this is your first time on this blog, I ask you to read my About page first! You can find a link to it at the top left-hand corner of this blog. Thanks!)

When I had first heard that they were making a sequel to Mary Poppins, I was quite opposed to it! Mary Poppins is my absolute favorite live-action Disney film and a cinema classic at that! It didn’t need a sequel!

But I mellowed toward the idea for one particular reason: this sequel was coming out during the current era we are in of Disney making live-action remakes of their animated films. As I’ve made very clearly multiple times in the past, I’m against those remakes, in principle, as I feel they disparage the medium of animation. So because this would be a live-action sequel to a live-action film rather than a live-action remake of an animated film, I opened my heart a bit to its existence.

The film would be directed by Rob Marshall who previously directed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Into the Woods for Disney. While I wasn’t in love with either film, I had hope that maybe he could do something satisfactory with this remake. Did it turn out practically perfect in every way? Here’s my review of Mary Poppins Returns!

The Odd Life of Timothy Green (2012)

The Odd Life of Timothy Green was a live-action Disney film that when I saw it for the first time years ago, I thought that it was once of the worst live-action Disney films I’d ever seen.

Granted I hadn’t seen Prom, The Country Bears, or Old Dogs yet!

I mean, this was the film that persuaded Internet reviewer, Doug Walker, to resurrect his previously cancelled Nostalgia Critic character! So when the time came to review this Peter Hedges-directed film, I wasn’t looking forward to it. Was it as bad as I remembered it? Let’s find out as I review The Odd Life of Timothy Green!

And remember, SPOILERS AHEAD!

Upcoming Live-Action Disney Films in 2018

I shall be taking a break on this blog for the rest of the year and will resume posting my reviews in January 2018. Until then, I decided to do something similar to what I do on my other blog, The Animation Commendation, wherein I give you a guys a look at the live-action Disney films set to be theatrically released next year!

But, keep in mind that these are only the live-action films that I will review for this blog, hence there will be no Star Wars or Marvel Studios-related films on this list. Also keep in mind that these dates are liable to change at any time! Enjoy!
