Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

Emily Blunt makes a terrific Mary Poppins, bringing that same combination of odd and thorny with an underlying sexiness that Julie Andrews did to the 1964 Mary Poppins, even if Andrews is still the best. Rob Marshall directs Mary Poppins Returns as if it were a direct sequel, following immediately in the 1960s, or of no particular time. Except for a villain, a banker that gets rich by foreclosing on homes (shades of The Big Short), this movie has no winking nods to anything modern-day. It's all comfortably old-fashioned and self-contained. In the story, several years have indeed passed, and now Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw) is grown up with a family of his own. His wife has passed on, and his dream of being an artist has given way to working at the bank to make ends meet. His sister Jane (Emily Mortimer) lives with him and helps out, while organizing rallies and demonstrations (we never see these, only Jane making and carrying signs and flyers around). Dick Van Dyke's chimney-sweep Bert has been replaced by a cheerful lamplighter, Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), who also sports a wild cockney accent. When the family is about to lose the house, Mary shows up to take the children on adventures and sort of indirectly help save the day. One such adventure takes place inside a fancy bowl (including a series of delightful hand-drawn cartoons and fantastic use of the bowl's contours) and another in an upside-down repair shop run by Cousin Topsy (Meryl Streep); neither of them really further the story, but they are welcome asides. The songs aren't quite as memorable as the ones in the original, but perhaps given time they'll stick around. Overall, while it's not a great movie, it's colorful and diverting, and it truly is good to see Mary again. read more...

Coco (2017)

Pixar's nineteenth animated feature film Coco, which opens Wednesday in Bay Area theaters, may seem a little lightweight compared to heart-wrenchingly profound as things like Inside Out, Wall-E, Up, or the Toy Story films. read more...

Pinocchio (1940)

Pinocchio was one of five early feature masterworks Walt Disney made at the height of his powers. It's still amazing to watch the sheer delight in movement and the sheer joy in decorating the frame with colors and shapes. As with some of the other early Disney stuff, this is much darker than most people remember or realize. read more...
