Movie Diary 12/17/2018

Mary Poppins Returns (Rob Marshall, 2018). Almost defiantly old-fashioned – a little blast of the English music hall, completely out of time and very welcome. Also notable as a Rob Marshall film that’s bearable. Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda (a curious, smiling plastic-toy presence) are both fully committed to the film’s world. The only thing I really miss is the minor-key dark breeze of “Chim Chim Cher-ee.” (full review 12/19)
