Fresh update on "mary poppins" discussed on The Daily Beans
"You're right I. I there's just a lot of media out there saying you know just poke every day saying aren't these women annoying or you know isn't this candidate Schill and hey? You eventually gets to you and you're like. Yeah and That's just that's really awesome and although I have to say though if they raised you to be a wonderful person and they're good wonderful people, I'm not surprised that they you know that they were open to that kind of communication and I think that's how we have to approach all of our trump's supporting family members you know yeah. Yeah. Definitely or yet people maybe that have ideas that aren't necessarily Trumpian but are definitely being pushed by gop I find it very funny to this concept of needing to check in with yourself as. Like why you hate someone like taking taking hey inventory on occasion sort of and I think. Because I've been caught sometimes to where there's people that I've definitely been like fuck that person and then someone calls me on it and they're like, well, why and I tell them like a general thing but I've definitely sort of let the facts that originally like got me pissed off kind of fade away and it's like if you're going to harbor that hate towards someone, you should at least harbor the facts with it if you lose the tax. Your renew your hate vows rapidly exactly and reevaluate allow yourself the ability to say you know maybe this hate relationship is just not working out and we can depart we. Can't do that with our our significant others, right like every couple of years I think if I just met this person a new.

House of Mouse Announces 10 Million Signups on Disney+ Launch Day
"Family friendly streaming service Disney plus. You've heard about it right. The company announced for more than ten million new subscriptions on its first day scoring some technical glitches but also shooting past analysts expectations and apparently their own expectations. Since two analysts had predicted Disney plus would reach ten to eighteen million subscribers in its first year. According to the Verge Disney's stock shot up seven in percents on the news that ten million number looks all the more striking when you compare it to those of existing Streaming Services Hulu plus which Disney now owns has twenty eight million subscribers. And it's been around for eleven years then there's ESPN plus another Disney. Property launched in April twenty eighteen and it has only two and a half million subscribers according to CNBC of course net flicks still dominates with one hundred fifty eight million subscribers worldwide but then again netflix created the streaming video category way. Back in two thousand seven and if there's anyone staying up at night worrying about the success of Disney plus it's Netflix CEO Reed Hastings. But but let's start with how Disney got to this point and just what so many viewers are looking for. I we have to note that the first week is free and so some unknown no number of subscribers are likely to have cancelled by the time. You're hearing this and another big. Group is getting Disney plus whether they asked for it or not less than a month ago Disney announced. What's that the service will be free for a year? For New and existing verizon unlimited subscribers that number could be as high as eighteen million people even if the promotion attracts no new subscribers. In case you weren't one of those first day sign ups. Here's what Disney plus viewers are getting access to a catalogue of five hundred Disney movies films from Pixar Lucasfilm and marble and seventy five hundred TV episodes including all thirty seasons of the simpsons and thirty five original original shows to ten at launch original content includes an eagerly anticipated live action star wars series called the mandatory in which garnered at least two million Leeann downloads. On the first day. That right there is probably a big part of the blame for those frustrating early outages. Right also a remake of the iconic lady and the TRAMP avengers injures endgame and other Marvel Films Plus documentaries from National Geographic spending cosmic sums of money for new shows to almost a billion bucks in twenty eight twenty alone according to the Hollywood reporter. Still the trade paper says Disney's counting more in its back catalogue at least for now longtime. CEO and chairman. Bob Iger is known as a fearless US risk taker a guy who believes in the motto innovator die observers say he's bet the future of Disney on streaming sinking billions into this project including it's seventy a billion dollar acquisition of twenty th century Fox's assets Disney also took back much of its catalog from netflix dropping. What had been a lucrative partnership and so it makes sense that a CEO betting big on Disney's future in streaming would go for a land? Grab on the first day out. One way to bag as much market share as possible of course is to price aggressively which is just what Disney has done. The company unveiled its low seven dollars a month price tag this spring in a splashy press conference on on a movie Lot were Disney filmed the original. Mary poppins she might call that a spoonful of sugar but for Netflix. It's a bitter pill. It's monthly charges. Start at nine dollars dollars and go up from

of the actress playing Mary poppins when I saw it the week before on its opening I have noticed that Mary during two scenes drinks tea from a teacup and had been holding a teacup with little finger extended which we don't do is we Do because as I think I have explained on this podcast before can you remember it's because they used to do it in the fridge olden days what was it the Court of Louis Fourteen fifteen sixteen and it meant that you had the club if you get drunk you take a little pinky oh P- yeah it was a code for saying I've got the KLOPP up you've got the club yeah we can have into 'cause well yeah you it was not polite to sleep someone without letting them know that you had syphilis so you put your little finger out when drinking tea at court of an evening the other school of thought because that particular strain of syphilis was so strong at the time it made your joints stiffen up so you physically couldn't wrap your fingers round so either way gets it's syphilis related so I was having chat with easy Stalin's mother and during the interval and we were chatting about one or two things and she said Oh some of the costs went shore if they they should be saying mammal mom and I said Oh it's definitely Ma'am and she don't we do not get things rights and at that point I thought well here is my opportunity Yep so I said I just point point one other thing out could you pass this along I don't think we want to syphilis Mary and I think we probably want the little finger touch and I explained to her and she was she was made all the right noises so very interesting when I go and see it next week to see if that fingers touching how can you go and see a show so I honestly got gingy visit stress how obsessed this Mondays
Who Would Win Dracula vs Cyborg
"Could not be more excited about this particular match up you know we talk about what I want to see out of battles me this Guy Ray I wanna see Contra asked of styles I wanna see to roughly matched characters fighting each other who aren't exactly the same we've talked before on this show many times sick and tired of the pedantic Green Arrow versus Hawkeye battle I'll always go back to his just who cares they're both the same dude yawn yawn bar Searle Wretch I'm over it what I wanna see is an ancient Vampire Count Dracula versus the cybernetic hero from the future org these are two class of styles but still very very compelling as a match up the this matchup reminds me of the first. UFC days where you would have you know the karate master versus the Kung Fu master or the jets jitsu versus the shoot fighter this one each of these characters clearly stays within their lane Cyborg doesn't dabble in the supernatural and I really don't think Dracula kind of goes over to the technological outside either I don't think he's ordering stuff on Amazon now that's he's definitely not neuberger either no no no no now to kind of help us with this debate we needed the think outside the box for judges and ray you had a great suggestion to bring someone in who when you think of contracting styles you think if someone who can kind of wrap their heads around the cultural impact of each character you brought up someone's name why thought was absolutely genius you can you can go ahead and Gush your guts out because what you're trying to say here's we needed somebody a little smarter for this episode and that's what I got for you definitely smarter than you and I and I think that's exactly what we got it's not saying it's not I know I I'm not saying doc I'm just not saying that you're smart and joining us in an amazing amazing actor comedian and voice over artists is Rama Blurry rumour accused of being on the show thank you for having me I didn't realize I was GONNA get buttered up so quickly at the beginning of the show well of course we're getting buttered up by James He wants something from you Aka Torri in this battle are you saying you don't want anything from me right I'm just saying I'll deserve it when I get it okay so you're willing to accept whatever my judgment is by the end I'm fact you look great today that out very very attractive man really James when I said let's bring someone smart maybe even genius intellect in the studio it wasn't actually needing for the person to be so gosh darn handsome but here we are well here we are and I'm I'm already tallying in my head I can't tell you who's winning this flatter off yet yet rabbi they'll tell you I I gotTa Tell You you're very successful active done a lot with your voice over career you're in a number of nationally and internationally syndicated commercials correct you know for different companies you're absolutely amazing I'm GonNa just ask you the question everyone else's thinking right now how are you friends with Ray I appeared on another podcast of raise knowing is half the podcast a great show that rates show and I linked to the three people on that show yeah it was here breath with the fabulous Mr Clark Chan and everyone's friend Eileen Eileen Mary O'CONNELL judge the muppets versus sesame street battle on the WHO would win six one of our favorites yep so I met I met Ray there and was wild by his podcasting acumen but also his passion for purely obscured or pop cultural Ephemera so when he asked if I would do this I said yes and then when he told me what the battle was I said Oh hell yeah very cool so what is your experience within geek culture because very often we have judges that have such a great background to them that we sometimes forget to say like hey by the a sheer he really is into this because they were they do how are you into Geek culture well first off I wear glasses so that got me eh into it very early I read compulsively I just finished my eighth book of the year and the year of the year and that includes graphic novel doesn't things some recommended to me by Mr Clark Chan I consume a lot of media and between the written word art nick cartoons as voiceover guy doing cartoons and video games and things I'm paying attention to everything going on because this is a fun visit a fun learning lesson for anybody who wants to do voices if you do impressions and I do a lot of impressions you have to realize that if you do a bad impression it becomes a character but if you do a good impression understand somebody else might do it too so the key example is this Alan tutic everybody loves Allen to one of the most underrated absolutely Kazan firefly's amazing he's easing everything death at a funeral he was one of my favorite parts of that he took the voice of Ed Wynn Vaudeville performer win famously in Mary poppins the laughing uncle off the table forever now I loved I loved doing this man's voice it was just so much on yet we're still in the middle of Shock Tober James you've been having a very shall we say successful shock Tober so far I have I've I'd like to say that I had to work really hard to get to wins in the month of shocked over the reality is I did not have to work that hard at all I didn't even research either character I just came to the show because you are a liar who was filled with lies actually researched the hell out of I hope I can say that in shock to over the heck out of both characters they were close matches by the a ray did will was there and I somehow pulled out the victory for both so I am in in crisis mode right now because I love this matchup I love Dracula vs Cyborg and look I cannot allow Cyborg to win this battle the idea that I could be facing a skunk for the entire month of shocked HCT sickens and appalls me in I'm not trying to influence your decision in any way Rama you still have to make the right decision you still have to make the right decision for you and family well see here's the thing ray as the impartial judge here I have to rule with my mind and not with my heart so you're pleading as moving may be as heartbreaking as it may be that you are putting up a goose egg this month I can't promise you a victory I can't I have to listen to the facts argued I want is for you to hear arguments and make the correct decision that's all if if every judge did that I would have a ninety five percent win percentage on the show well I gotTa Tell You James Your silence so far in your willingness to just plead the facts and all this is going to be a very dragnet performance I'm interested in just the facts ray all right just the fact enough all right well then let's waste no more time reduce the honors and announced as matchup representing the DC universe the manso metal he irons his clothes with his but cyborg doc and representing the Marvel Universe the count who will dig through the ditches burn through the witches and slamming the back of my dracula thank you okay I'll make a note about it we'll make a note about it before we go any further let's go over the official rules about who would win matched I roll number one each debater will be able to make three points rule number two the WHO would win matches a random encounter in neutral location with neither combatant necessarily knowing anything about their opponent or having any time to prepare part will number three the exact version the character has to be specifically stated so rare which version of Dracula you're using this is such a tough decision there are so many iterations of dragon in this world but I felt that since you assuredly are taking comic book version of Cyborg it would behoove me to take the powers feats and whatnot of the a six one six Marvel Marvel version of dracula gay that kind of scares me a little bit because that's in my opinion the most powerful form DRACULA in popular culture so it's Kinda what's being known as what People Know About Dracula these days I felt anymore right that's true okay well I will be using when did it become a New Yorker right now are you filled with a certain level of bombast when you get to the Mike you lean in and then you start projecting on Amazon by Taibbi and Hashtag who would win rate please give us the DETAILS ON DRACULA COUNT DRACULA is a powerful vampire who first appeared in the eighteen ninety seven brands Tokar Novel Dracula. Today's version of this iconic character is the marvel iteration who first appeared in historical suspense number seven in Nineteen fifty one then was rebooted in Tomb of Dracula number one in nineteen seventy two the newer version was made by Gerry Conway as well as Gene COLAN DRACULA'S PERHAPS THE MOST famous vampire of all time sorry twilight kids owing to the era a free to use characters in Comic Books Dracula makes her a formidable monster or overlord ending on the needs of the Story Dracula has a host of vampiric abilities including

Netflix Vows to Curb Onscreen Smoking Amid 'Stranger Things' Criticism
"A stranger things season three debuted on Netflix on the fourth of July the show takes place in nineteen eighty five and a lot of people were upset at the depictions of smoking by several lead characters in stranger things well they have address this and a Netflix spokespersons telling The Hollywood Reporter that they strongly support artistic expression however recognizing that smoking is harmful and win per trade positively on screen can adversely influence young people so now they say going forward as a result of people getting upset about smoking all new projects that the commission with the rating of TV fourteen or below or for movies that are PT thirteen and below there will be no smoking in E. cigarette use except for reasons have historical or factual accuracy so they're a little model there yeah it's a little Lucy goosey but what they're saying initial like stranger things TV fourteen rating on that yeah that they wouldn't really really limit the use of cigarettes I mean they could argue that you know they would not use them at all I mean there's several characters and in the mid eighties of people smoke please I mean like if we can just have an open and honest conversation about the nineteen eighties for a second here you could smoke anywhere you could smoke on airplanes I believe still in the eighties all you could do that on domestic flights in yes in eighties and internationally I think you do the nineties Sir even in the two thousands it was that recent that smoking bans were passed in restaurants and bars yeah I got really upset at the time saying you know I want my beer in my sick I'm out for a good time those two go together now they don't anymore because I mean I even remember as an adult waiting tables in restaurants that had smoking section yeah I mean I seem to recall like being at Southdale in people could smoke like in the courtyard there like that whatever the middle area I think that's my memory so Netflix is doing this for all of Netflix or just stranger things all of that flick and they said fourteen under right yeah okay because I was not say what they can do about madman well yeah would be a conversation about historical or factual accuracy but even that would be like here to tell you sorry I totally just talked right over your Holly I apologize I was going to say before going on to your thought that even with a show like mad men or other shows like it where they would probably I mean I would assume highly discourage the romanticized the use of cigarettes which they could probably point to something like mad men or other shows and say Hey look the way that you're too big depicting tobacco use in the show is not is in a light that is not that we're not we're not doing right now but to avoid a do not doing that but here's what I was going to say I don't know about your situation siding with your daughter but my kids what ever they're being taught in school is working because they literally one were walking outside in the C. somebody smoking it is the same as if you saw somebody I don't know scratching their eyeballs out that's how crazy it looks I mean they I don't see it like that person is smoking and they it's like I'm it is like a taboo to them they know it's bad they know it's not good they are they have judgments about it and so I almost feel like they're already coming to it with an eye of like that's bad and you then you can have that conversation I mean if we were my kids are watching stranger things I think my twelve year old is curious about it I don't really I I prefer him to be able to sleep at night I'm just interested you know yeah get that show but but I think if you were watching it and he saw people smoking he would not think any he would not think it's glamorous even if the person seems glamorous you see what I mean right he would see that as like a flaw of the person's character I can't believe that person the smoking ban the smoke yeah not as Lee I don't think that that's something they got from us because my husband and I know we we know people who are active smokers and you know so it's not like we ever have made a big deal out of it I really think they get that from school and so whatever they're being taught about cigarettes and stuff like that me up at school like the the don't do drugs yeah that's probably what it is yeah I mean but so my point being like let's give kids some credit but they also can understand that because I do think it tells a story if you know in the eighties you could really smoke anywhere right and also not leaving out smoking in stranger things if you were to do that it's just a reality of the time yeah scene eighty five and to your kids credit they understand that smoking is not good for you right and that also we live in twenty nineteen where the idea of public smoking is pretty much all but obliterate yeah from lately completely yeah so no it's not I yeah because we had this conversation about the movie saving Mr banks all yeah so we've we have gone down this conversation before not just with strangers thing season three so if you recall the movie saving Mr banks of that came out a couple of years ago and it's about the making of the movie Mary Poppins and Tom Hanks stars as Walt Disney and in that movie Disney made a very deliberate decision to not depict Walt Disney as the chain smoker that he was okay they are they honestly honest to goodness the studio made that decision to not depict Walt Disney as a smoker and he was a ridiculous smoker to the point he passed away due to complications from lung cancer but several years after that movie took place in nineteen sixty six yeah just like you know that was part of his character in my demeanor ultimately led him down the path of his eventual path but for them to just completely say the slippery slope when we start to sanitize history

Oscar nominations 2019 predictions: From A Star is Born to Roma
"Eight. I saw green book most recently, which I thought was great that may end up being my pick to to win the best picture. You've seen all best picture movies except for Roma. So you've got Black Panther black klansman bohemian rhapsody, by the way, Adam Lambert and Queen are going to perform Sunday, that'd be cool. That'll be really lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper performing. Which will also be cool. You really cool the favorite green book Romo rumour, aroma. Tony Romo model a star is born and vice. And who you picking unpicking green book to win because I think it made you feel the best and it was well done a period piece based on a true story, Rome. I think is getting a lot of a lot of buzz too. But maybe the director Affonso who also I think one best picture for gravity in our best director in two thousand thirteen for gravity Black Panther, which I know dragon scene for sure is definitely the best of all the marvel movies ever made. And it's interesting because it was such a big deal about their cast being all black the director and writer Ryan Kugler African American and so I'm surprised that he wasn't nominated for best director as well, Spike, Lee. This is his fifth nomination for best director. He's never one. But I'm picking green book to win that wouldn't be surprised if Roma does I loved bohemian rhapsody. But you remember when it came out, and we talked about they took some liberties with the story joke that Freddie Mercury doesn't die of aids in the movie because I remember making that joke. They changed a bunch of stuff around in that movie. Why did you read the bio and Freddie Mercury? I talked to friends that have seen it the no a lot more about Queen and the timetable with how the movie plays out and how he got in the band and stuff, but it's an entertaining movie. What's the best movie you've seen this year because I'm picking green book to win? I haven't seen any of them, by the way. So I got nothing. Oh. Yeah. Set a best picture you haven't seen Black Panther either. No. But are you a superhero movie guy? No, not at all. No. I I haven't seen any of those. I'm gonna say that I I like bohemian rhapsody a lot and I'm not a huge Queen fan. But I really liked it. But I'm gonna go with the stars four stars born it was it was really really I think the biggest reason reasonable win. Cathy, is that it's already been this is the fourth. They've done this story. I know that they've tweaked it. I didn't lady Gaga is gonna pull the upset for best actress, I hope so I you know, it really really made me like lady Gaga put her in a total different category fro. Yes. She's fantastic. A great singer. But you know, I I like her music, but I never put her like on this pedestal you've tried to act not try you weren't actor try. That's a bit of a stretch. But yeah, but the point is imagine the first real you ever play you get nominated for an Oscar, and I get that she's playing a struggling musician, and she can easily identify with that and go back to what it took to get discovered and all of that. And and you know, toiling in nothing jobs hoping for that break, but to execute that onscreen, and she was she was the best part of the movie by far Bradley Cooper is really good. But I hope she wins. Even though Glenn Close, it's seven nation. She's never one. So she could be a lifetime achievement kind of winner. If you will she's phenomenally talented, she s I don't know. But I liked Ramey. Malik as I think he's going to go. I mean, he did a great impersonation. So let's go actor in a leading role, you got Christian bale? Vice Bradley Cooper, a star is born Willem Defoe at eternity gate. Remmy Romney Malik bohemian rhapsody Vigo Mortenson green book, jussie smollet for the Chicago hope. Very funny. Avi next next year. He'll get one for that bright. Yeah. Like when Golden Globes. Yeah. So that it plus you're combining acting and singing did he really singing. Oh, okay. So we he was acting like a cigarette. Huber really saying. Yeah, he did having Adam Lambert seeing at the goal K, so okay. And at the Oscars, maybe Bradley Cooper, then because he's singing and acting and this is any directed it. This is Bradley Cooper's forced nomination as an actor, and he's never won Christian bale. One once Willem Dafoe. This is his fifth nomination. He's never won. And I don't I know Vigo Mortenson hasn't won. And certainly Rami Malik first nomination. Still picking me Malik to win. I thought he was great. Actress in a leading role you have low LIZA appereciation from Roma. You have Glenn Close. Everybody knows here from the wife Livia Coleman from the favorite lady. Gaga stars born Melissa McCarthy, can you ever forgive him in a more serious turn not a not a comedic role. She's awesome. The best lady Gaga for that. I think it's upset Glenn Close as the heavy favorite. But I'm I'm pulling a lady Gaga upset as my pick feel like Glenn Close because she's been around. So long performance is great. And then maybe it's like her turn kind of thing. Maybe and, but they did it lady Gaga's gonna keep acting and have another shot seems far-fetched at this point. Right. So is leader thirty. So, but how come Bradley Cooper, gene, get a directing because he did for American sniper? So that's about those are the biggies right there. Yeah. Supporting actor and actress, Marcia Lee who is in green book, I bet you. He wins a second. You don't want to talk about making hairstyling best animated feature. Incredible to come on. I don't know about best editing. The spider verse hairstyling best song song about best picture. Or did. We did that already songs. Best. The song. Okay. What are your choices? I don't see all the stars Black Panther. I'll fight RV g the place where lost things go. Mary. Poppins returns. Shallow. A star is born when a cowboy change Spurs for wings, the ballot BUSTER Scruggs, and that's different from original score original scores of music throughout the movie right songs. I think it'll be almost impossible. For lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper not to win. I think they win. Okay. We're we're out of time. I'll watch part of it. Yeah. It's like a four hour show. Four hours. It's hard to it gets here. It's one of my favorite my favorite nights of the year. I used to always do with my mom. That guy picks. I'm that guy. I have a couple of friends getting together to watch the show. I get it. I mean, if you watch I haven't seen all the movies. I wait to watch him on the Denver Broncos play. Year later used be all the movies. It'll be of several of these. Oh, I gave did your wife end up watching bohemian a couple times guide and really liked.
Making Ballet Accessible to Youngsters
"Usually doesn't take much persuasion to get children to go and see a film at the cinema can be quite a different situation though for other art forms like setting quietly for a ballet performance.

And popcorn cornet.

But then not here to watch the latest Pixar animation who Mary Poppins watching. That sitting comfortably in the cinema. My name is an neater and before you'll get to watch the wonderful.

And that they see it as an add on to theater experiences. Not instead of after they've seen something like this in the cinema. Is it also your hope that they might then feel it's time to approach theater to have already done. So you always trying to get people to the theatre. It's about new people and is about this. Kind of unconscious bias that.

Trump border wall: the hypocrisy of Trump's immigration agenda
"A cited said in his staff is cited factually, accurate, then why not just go ahead declared the national emergency Bill the wall and stop with all this grandstanding. Just do it. Right. Also, this idea he's also floated the. That the money that comes in from the new tariffs on goods is going to pay for it. Does this guy not know how the government works? That's not what happens. Okay. This money. Must be appropriated by congress. It doesn't come in from tax revenue. It has to go through congress. Okay. Through tax revenue. It's still has to be a portion by congress and congress is going to keep saying, no because guess what they were saying. No when when Paul Ryan was running them only, they weren't saying no as overly. But the fact of the matter is is the Republican party's donors are not happy at the idea of not having all that cheap labor being shut off. So this border wall thing is a game that they're playing with their base. Okay. See we want to keep out the Brown hordes from south of the border to protect America sovereignty on the other hand are businesses will die without him. I have a question for you. Donald Trump hiring illegal immigrants at his resorts. Evidently a bunch. Yeah. And at all of them. Yeah. In New Jersey. The attorney general of that state has turned this matter over to Mr. Mueller. Okay. Because he feared that Mr. sessions when he was attorney general would conveniently bury it and that Mr. Whittaker would do the same. So the fact of the matter is is that the same president of the United States who says we are in dire need of immediate border wall hires and lures illegal immigrants to the United States to work here. I recognize the two people that adore and idolize Mr. Trump, I might as well be speaking Swahili Healy standing on my head in a bucket filled with water for because they're not gonna listen to me.

"All right. So overall, you told me you told us early on the you felt like this was fine. It was like a perfectly adequate reboot slash sequel to Mary Poppins. But that you don't really know why it should exist in the first place. Do you hold onto that? Would you tell people who have not seen this movie? And it's worth your time. I sort of wish it doesn't exist. You know, I think I would tell friends with kids go see it, Mike. I think the kids will like it. And I will say the other thing that I appreciate about this movies. It's like just a good old fashioned musical, even though the music not necessarily memorable in any way. Like, I think, you know, in in the way, it's not trying to do. You know, rob Marshall is the director of this. And it's not trying to do this sort of Chicago thing where it's like, I'm gonna this is a musical. But we're gonna make it sexy for the for the screen like it doesn't try to do that. It just like it isn't as a call. That's how it exists and actually like Chicago, by the way. But like, it's it's not trying to hide behind obvious bells and whistle whistles, which I appreciate so. Yeah. I mean, I would say people people with kids in people who were like really big fans of Mary Poppins. I think the fan services enough to like warm your heart a little bit. Everyone else you stay away. Yeah. I will say the the thing that does share with Chicago that other rob Marshall musical is that the big dance numbers are cut so quickly that you never dancing. Yeah. Yeah. Which I guess is what you have to do when you're two stars are not like the answers. Exactly. But Jesus you had all those yet to like put people on bikes and make all the good dancers animated animals. But like, there's no like actual great dance sequences MS, which I thought was kind of a bummer. They take away from this whole entire conversation. It's just their BMX bikes in nineteen thirty one thing you need to know about nineteen thirties. London. It's that all of the people who live the gas lamps road BMX bikes. That's historically accurate. And that's what I have learned from Mary Poppins returns. All right. I I basically agree with you like I would never tell a person who is not required by law to see this movie with their children to see this movie. Like, there's no reason to do. So if you are a huge. Emily blunt, STAN and watch a see her at her twinkly go for it. If you really like wild costumes and you wanna see like nineteen thirties bathing suits being warned by Lin Manuel. Miranda go for if you, but if you don't have to see the movie don't see it like, it's a free country. There's a lot better movies to see. Okay. Thank you Asia. Harris.

"I think I think it's fine. And so, of course, he does a little song and dance. He's like moving like, he's seventy years old. Instead of however, however, he actually is he looked great looks greats. Anyways, like it was just really sweet to see him there. You know? I I can I can understand why they didn't want to have Julie Andrews make a cameo. But I think that this worked out let's discuss that question. Well, if she made them think they didn't want to answers to Cami ultra maybe very wanted hell out of her to a cameo. Why? Okay. So after the scene in the Bank, they go to the park, and they they all fly into the balloon soul to them by and. Angela lansbury in a role. That's so obviously, I think was written for Julie Andrews and was meant to be the Khuda grass of this whole experience that after you see Dick Van Dyke. They go to the park it. Oh my God. Holy shit. It's Julie Andrews, she's right there on the screen, and then they asked her and she said, no. And then they're like fuck what do we do? Now, we have this role. That was written for a big that's supposed to be a big surprise. And everyone's supposed to go. Who do we put it? And then they had to go hat in hand to Angela lansbury and say Angela lansbury the legend we wanted to get for this role was not available could you please fill in for her. We're going to back a car load of British pounds up to your house and dump them all out on your front step, and you have to go to work for a day. Will you do it and Angela lansbury because she is a Queen said I will. That is what I think, you're probably you're probably right. Although to be yes, that's probably what happened though. Angela is a is a legend in her own right. And she was in bed knobs broomsticks, which was kind of like a similar to this in terms of the animation meets live action anyway. And of course, she's MRs Potts. But yeah, us great. I'm just saying the role was clearly supposed to be Juliet, I guess so I feel like it's probably better though. I don't know. I think it would have been weird to see the actual Mary Poppins make that case. Why would it have been what I don't know? I feel like so you know, how there's the the new west side story that Spielberg's doing and Rita Marino. For awhile was like, yeah. I don't want to be in this movie. Like, I'm not gonna make a cameo 'cause I'm not I don't want to distract and that that'd be weird. And I'm done with that life. Although. Now, apparently, she's going to play doc, which I don't really know how that works. 'cause doc is supposed to be with the white gang members. Not the anyway, I just think it would be distracting like I agree with Rita Marino's original reasoning for why she wouldn't want to be in. It is that like, you know, make this your own thing. Whereas with dick with Dick Van Dyke. It's different because he's playing a character. Who was actually a character in the original? Like, no one remembers that I've just saying it wouldn't be more distracting than Dick Van Dyke. Fucking trail fives me convince me, you're right. Julie Andrews should have been in this our ARGUS. I got a whole conspiracy theory going about this because the very excuse that read Marino gave oh I don't wanna be a distraction is the supposed- excuse Julianne just gave for not being in Mary Poppins returns, the company line from both Julie Andrews people and Disney and everyone that they've ass. Asked on this press tour about why isn't surely Anders in the movie is oh, she was so nice. Of course, we would have loved for her to be in the movie, but she didn't want to be a distraction from Emily blunt, and the amazing work that she is doing and what a gift it just so happens that both of these legendary actresses gave their productions to say, oh, I wouldn't want to distract from the new actresses who are playing these iconic roles. I I don't buy it. I don't buy it. I'm going to launch a ten part investigative podcast series into the question of why Julie Andrews was not in Mary Poppins returns. Please join me for that listeners. Right. I don't know where to go from there..

"And the right. So it's Albert who floats to the ceiling. This is ants whatever the hell her name is. Who wait? I'm looking at up as ants topsy. Cousin topsy sorry. Whose whose house turns upside down every once in a while? So it's like it's like literally the exact same thing. It is. Except the song is no I love to laugh. Sorry. It's it's funny. As soon as I saw her was like holy shit. She looks just like Madam Medusa from the rescuers wonder I wonder if they actually like based her look off of that like with the bright red hair and the the Brin outfit. Vikash department was tasked five years ago with coming one costume just in case that fans of the rescuers demand. A live action rescuers. Then they were like, well, let's save ten bucks. Just use that costume here. Yeah. I mean, look I I was happy to see Merrill, being like kooky wacky. And all that stuff. Again. I could not tell you how that song goes. And I did I did appreciate the sort of like weird dynamic between Mary Poppins in her character. Like, they seem kind of tactic towards each other. She like the aunt topsy. It was like you can't come on Wednesday. That's when my house turns upside down in Mary Poppins is like bitch. I'm coming in. And I and I liked that sort of like it was very like it wasn't too over the top. But I like that there is like it seemed like there was a little bit of history there. Whatever that history was who knows. But what do we think of Emily as Mary Poppins? Yeah. Well, so that you're you're mentioning of the sort of like sharp edge. She takes towards topsy was notable. I thought because that's you know, that's the character as peel Travers wrote her famously the characters like sort of much meaner and more of a hassle to deal within the books than she was in the original movie where she like has kind of a twinkling assertiveness that plays into like this vision of a British nanny. But she isn't particularly mean to anyone ever and seen that little glimmer of that character. And that's the top see was delightful. I thought Emily blunt was like fuck. Fine. She was like lovely. She has a little bit of magic to her her magic as like heavily like pounded on. There's nothing sort of light or whimsical about those scenes where like her reflection in the mirror stays after. She leaves or she has a little twinkle. And then we like here an actual twinkling. But like she is perfectly lovely and practically and right tickly. Perfect. She has practically perfect. Yes. I I don't know that she will sort of like live on NV aesthetic and dare I say, it's a Radic imaginations of the young people who see this years after Julianne. Definitely did what I'm not saying anything. I'm just saying Julie Andrews in that role had a certain kind of like dominatrix e like perfection that I think was imprinted on a whole generation of young men who saw that movie. And and I think there's a real arguments we made, and I'm not gonna make it here because slate doesn't pay me enough to subject myself, the hate mail that we would get. But I think there's are you you can make that sh- that the Mary Poppins and sound of music characters that Julie Andrews played imprinted themselves, the sort of developmental sexuality of an entire generation of American men and led to a kind of infantilized being sexuality, which we are still seeing seeing playing out today. Holy shit. This is sounds like a college essay what right. So this is I'm not gonna write this master's thesis, right? But I guess my question is for everyone who watched the original Mary Poppins, like the character is indelible for whatever reason. Right..

"You know, a six year old who sees Mary Poppins returns right now is going to view it with the same kind of a faction as a a kind of touchstone aesthetic experience that so many kids of your generation my generation do view that movie s or whether it's just sort of one more slight somewhat catchy. The thing in a sea of content that they have sort of experienced their whole lives. There's nothing special or fantastical about it. It's just another movie that they saw liked my hunches that that's the way it's going to be my hunch is that there's is that the movie's insistence on not being particularly special on being another thing. Like, the things you've already seen is going to do it to just being kind of, you know, just another pretty good movie that people saw liked pretty well. Let's move through the story the big sort of magical centerpiece of this story. I think is the is the song that takes the place of the penguin seen in the park from the original movie. It's the song which all the kids, and Mary and Jack go into a beautiful bowl that is on the on the mantle and their nursery. And they go into the world of the bowl and meet the characters who who are painted on this bowl and then end up in a big song and dance routine. Big show put on by Mary and Jack with a couple of songs, and then there's an adventure at the end of it sequence with a couple of with a horse horsedrawn wagon. And that to me was like, the sort of magical centerpiece of the kids experience as I said, I think it, you know, I think it's it's you can draw a direct line from the penguin scene and super caliber Listrik to this. How did these two scenes compare to you? Did you feel magic in the scene? Had did did it work for you the way that penguin sane works? So well in the original, well, it's interesting because the reason that go into the bull is because they dropped the ball and it cracks, and so the the kids are like arguing and if Craxton so Mary Poppins like, okay, we have to go fix the fix the cracks. So that means of course, we have to go in the ball what I liked I think this is probably my favorite part because funnily enough because it he's closely to what the original was when it comes to the enemy Shen, my biggest annoyance with a lot of movies days. Whether they're you know, big budget blockbusters are just like really small like or mid size comedies or movies. It's like I can always tell when these actors are just in front of a screen screen, and it's very frustrating to see like the sort of dark outline in this very clearly fake backdrop of like a. Sky or a city skyline or the bridge, whatever. And I feel like a lot of Mary Poppins returns there's moments like that when they're in the streets where I'm like, you guys are clearly not like you're probably not even on a sound stage at this moment, and even though underwater scenes, but just like a little street scenes early. Right. Right. Right. But with this I liked it. It went back to the old school style animation that in it looked very similar to the penguin and super fraudulous sticks part of the original movie because I it did it did hit me. Like, oh, this is like this is my childhood in sweet way. Like oh. This is nice. And I'm glad that they're younger kids who will get to see this an experienced some old school animation. The power that just seeing hand-drawn animation has when you haven't seen it for years and years and years. Yeah. I it was really nice. I will say can we like so I have the lyrics so there so they have the the big song. The first one is like it's called the Royal Dalton music hall. They're going to the music hall. And it's it's I don't even think it's necessarily an analog to super California Listrik. It seems more like a jolly holiday type of thing. And then then they go into this big dance number Mary Poppins performs on stage and Jack joins her. And it's called a covers not. Note them was now the light great one strange interesting..

"So why don't we start by talking about this this the political message of this movie, which seems to revolve around this like predatory lending practice engaged in by Colin Firth at the fidelity fiduciary Bank. Now, you know, the the Bank president in the original Mary Poppins is also kind of a bad, dude. In the sense that he makes Mr. banks work too hard. But this president is like a seriously bad, dude. In the sense that he's lying to children and trying to just take away their house just for fun. And the kind of the message that that pushes I thought ran parallel and interesting way to the political message of Mary Poppins, which some listeners may not remember was all about getting the vote for women, MRs banks. The children's mother is an active and lively suffragette. And she in fact has that great song that she sings early in the movie that sort of drives that political message. What did you think about the the way that this movie dealt with those politics and did it seem? To someone who presumably came up with this vision of the Suffragettes based on watching the movie ten million times. Do you think that people that little kids who watch Mary Poppins returns are going to come out of it with a coherent political viewpoint of the banks and mortgage policy? Honestly, like, I don't even think I fully understood what suffrage it was until years later. I just like I didn't did not grasp as child what she was singing about even though I knew all the words. It's like, you know, our daughter's daughters will adore us, and they'll sing grateful chorus. Well, done sister Suffragettes. So I didn't realize it was like necessarily this like this song steeped in something very political. And I have a feeling the way, especially the way this movie handles it like, it's predatory loaning. Yes. And mortgages and all that stuff, but it's happening to various Pacific family like it. It doesn't necessarily convey that past like extend that sentiment to the rest of London or like the other poor people of London or not that the family is poor. But the other people who who exist on the fringes of London like they're kind of they're in the background as you mentioned. We see. Like the food line. But I feel like it's kind of because it's such a singular thing, and it's treated more. I've just like very convenient plot point in this movie. I don't see necessarily conveying any larger political stance to a kid under the age of say like ten plot point that can be that clearly can be remedied with like a little bit of magic. Right. Whether it's the stock certificates or the little bit of of compound interest magic that in the end actually does solve the problem. And it does seem though that like Jane as an adult, Emily mortimer's character. She sort of is conferred, the Suffragettes issues like character as an adult. She's I think she's working for a union labor organizer. She's a labor organizer. So there's that aspect which feels a little bit more distinct. And but even that part is very Jane is kind of just there. It's really more about Mike. Well, and his family, and she helps out and. Limon walls character, Jack, he kind of there's this whole subplot where they start to catch is for they catch is reach other whatever the phrases, and they like he's like, oh, I'll help you put up your posters. I have a bike. It's like, okay. So even that is wrapped up in this romantic subplot less so than anything like actually concrete's. So I think the politics are there, but they're not it's this isn't going to be like changing lives or anything of great job. Mary Poppins returns, your politics are just as fast as the original Mary Poppins politics. But so then let's talk about Mary Poppins. She flies in on an umbrella. She takes the kids under her wing. She Greece to be their nanny for no charge this time. Because of course, Michael could not possibly pay for it. And she immediately begins. Introducing magic into their lives. And as the original Mary Poppins does. Immediately poop UIs the very idea that magic possibly be real telling them that they should ignore. What everything that's happened to them? And what they see. And in fact, if they say that there's magic they're crazy. But the first big magical sequence of Mary Poppins and the kids is that underwater bathtub scene where they all go into a magical underwater world to the song..

"The original in a way that I I mean that I started to make me laugh as the movie went on. I realized how closely it was going to Hugh to that template. And I think it'll be worth that. As we go through this conversation to to refer as we discussed scenes in this new one to their analogs in the original because they're so clearly there. You know, for me, Mary Poppins was not as much of a touchstone as was for you. But I think my relationship to Mary Poppins is very common to that of many adults maybe thirty five or older who are seen this movie, which is to say, we probably saw it when we were kids. Maybe we saw multiple times what we really knew when we were kids where the songs, right? You know, my elementary school choir saying, super, California, lsus Listrik expeditious, and we all knew a spoonful of sugar that was a song that are hall, our mom sang to us. And so whether or not the movie itself and its beats were familiar to us the songs really were. But the movie for me has become particularly familiar to me now because I'm a parent. And so my kids have watched Mary Poppins a bunch of times because I remembered the songs and the spirit of the movie fondly bought it on DVD played it for them said. Oh my God. This is four. Hours long. And then let them watch it. A couple more times in the back seats on car trips while I did not watch it ever again because I could not believe how unbelievably long the movie was. But so which is to say, I I have a fun nece for Mary Poppins, but not necessarily a familiarity with the movie, and how it works on a beat by be basis yet, I was able to sort of understand is this movie was going on just how closely it has meant to Hugh to that template. So let's go through the plot of this movie was a little bit. We have in the very same house supposedly like the beautiful British townhouse London townhouse that the first movie took place in we have once again young Michael Michael banks now is old Michael banks played by Ben Wishaw who who works at the fidelity fiduciary Bank, the very Bank, which old Mr. banks worked in the original movie. And who is struggling to hold on to the house London is in is in the middle of an economic depression as we see as Linneman Manuel maranda rides his bike around. Town singing about the lovely London sky as we see like ragpickers, and and poor people waiting in line for food at soup kitchens and his three adorable mop, it's has three children are struggling to figure out. Why it is that daddy is so sad. And why their house might endanger daddy is sad because their mom died about a year ago. Classic disney. Classic disney. Classic Disney, and they do have a couple of sort of mother figures in their life. They have their I guess sort of housekeeper person who is played by Julie Walters, and they have their aunt who we know once again from from the original movie who's Jane who was the kid who Mary Poppins along with Michael took care of and the original. All right. Let's pause for a moment..

"Editor h Harris. Hello, Hello, Dan. It's great to be back. We're so glad to have you here. You're in the New York offices where you've already run into small friends. Running into old friends is such an appropriate thing to be doing today as we are talking about return to some old friends in movie form Mary Poppins returns. Disney's revisitation of the beloved characters from way way back talk about how the movie handles revisiting these beloved characters and this beloved magic, how the movie diverges from the kinds of stories and themes of the first one about also how it Hughes quite closely to the stories the spirit and rhythms of the first movie, and we're gonna figure out whether BMX bikes really belong in nineteen thirties. London. But first of all we should warn our listeners that this is these spoiler special. So we will be spoiling this movie. So of spoilers are important to you. Please pause the podcast by ticket. Go see the movie comeback to your phone and unpopular podcast and continue listening from that point ready go if you don't care about splitters on just listened to us. We'll tell you everything that happens in Mary Poppins returns. All right. So Mary Poppins returns directed by rob Marshall, I'm an it's a sequel of sorts kind of a reboot. I guess I guess it's not really reboot. It's a true sequel to nineteen sixty four's Mary Poppins, the beloved movie that everyone has seen a million times yet actually forgets as you're an adult is four and a half hours long. This what has Emily blunt as Mary Poppins, she's joined by Lin Manuel Miranda as the kind of Birch character, Ben Wishaw, an Emily Mortimer playing the children from the. Digital Mary Poppins now all grown up, and then just a bunch of other delightful British people, plus Meryl Streep Aisha as someone who I think of as a real scholar of Disney someone who for Disney the company and the movies that they have made plays a real formative role. Tell me was Mary Poppins favorite of yours when you were growing up was that a movie that was formative for you in the way that, you know, The Lion King and a lot of the eighties nineties animated films were and absolately was it's mutt. Of my mom saver movies. And so I know she had memories of seeing it with her mother when she was a kid. And so when I was growing up we had it on VHS. Yes. It was like four hours long. But also like another Julie Andrews movie sound of music, which is which is actually like four hours on Lee would spend. I remember. Yes. Yes. Yes. With an intermission. We would spend afternoon. Sometimes like when my mom had to do my hair, which would take forever. We'd spend the afternoon watching Mary Poppins. And I, you know, listen to the soundtrack all the time. And I it's just it's actually probably been maybe I don't know five years since I last watch it in full, but I feel like I know it so well that as I as I was watching this version of it. A colleague of mine actually compared it. I know you said, it's not a reboot. But kind of is it's sort of like the the force awakens of Mary Poppins where it hits pretty much all of the same notes as Mary Poppins does. But like with a little bit of a more. Modern twist as you mentioned there are BMX bikes for some reason in the number that is sort of the corollary to step in time in the original. And and you know, overall this movie, I was delighted by it. I enjoyed it. I still had the sense of like this didn't need to be made at all. But I feel like that about most reboots and remakes I'm like the reboot remake jink Grinch. So that's how I feel about it. But I was you know, I enjoyed it. And I thought Emily blunt was actually a really really great Mary Poppins. Glad to have you here us on who's who. For whom the movie is encoded in your DNA in that way. Because I do agree that it's clear that this movie was born out of a desire to essentially redo Mary Poppins to make Mary Poppins again except for with new stars and new special effects and anew chance to make a bunch of money because it's so clearly maps the scenes songs and beats of.

"How did you get into the business and has you rise to take on motion pictures like Mary Poppins? Oh, well, I started in radio. I always wanted to be in the film business. But I was in Chicago. And I got a job in radio. And now is really where I I learned how to tell stories through sound, and I went to school for film and design in Chicago. But then I came out here because that's what I wanted to do. And I ended up getting involved in. I wanted to direct really, and then I came out here. And then I started working at cannon pictures. I walked in and said, I want a job, and he said, can you edit, and I said, yeah, sure and said good because someone just quit. So I got a job. They're starting out in in like anything, even though I went and learned sixteen millimeter in film. It's completely different on thirty five millimeter, which is what we were working with at the time. So everything I learned I had to really relearn and actually. Every film that I start. I almost have to relearn. It's like how might gonna tell the story differently. What am I gonna do on this one? That's different. So there's always a new skill set that you bring and you learn on each film. But I started at cannon, which they the slogan was it's where you started or ended your career. So I started my career there, and I went through that and somehow got involved with I was drawn more to dialogue because it was more storytelling. And it was the center channel. And it was more where I started. But I just ended up. I don't know. I you just start working with people, and you form relationships, you know, and one of the things to do which I think a lot of women don't do is that we all wait to were ready. And we wait till we've had the three degrees because we couldn't possibly do it until we're that prepared. And I think for men they just are more ready to jump in and try things because you have. To learn anyway, so, you know, for me, I grew up in a family of eleven and I was around by five brothers. So I learned pretty quickly. How you had to just as my mother would save. You don't ask you don't get because she couldn't pay attention to you. Unless you come up to say, I am sick. She doesn't understand can't see it. So I just asked I asked pretty early on that, you know, this is what I wanna do can I do this can, you know, this is an telling people what you want because if they don't know what you want. They can't really help you. So I felt that in my experience, and I tell this to a lot of the women that I work with mentors that you need to just ask you need to know what you want and then ask for it. Because no one can help you. Otherwise, women are still very under represented in your field in particular DC. Anything changing. It was definitely a male portal for a long time. And I do see changing, and it's very exciting. It's so wonderful to see women out there. Because honestly, it's a job that a lot of people don't even understand don't even know that. It's there I came through a circuitous. Lee but coming through radio, I understood sound I understood the power of editing, and what you could do to create a world on the radio to make your listeners believe that you were actually in this space. So for me, I knew about it. And I knew that there was that world. But a lot of women. I don't think even knew about it. They don't even know about it. And I think they do now I think it's you know, the world is really opening, and I'm I'm meeting some amazing women out there. They're just really talented and wonderful. And I also think that you know, there's been a crack that's happened there. It's definitely opened up. I started a while ago. And there were very few women that were in the business. I still find myself the only woman with maybe there's no two of us are three of us on a stage with mostly men, but that's changing. I'm very glad we're able to come in and join us and talk to us. Thank you so much and congratulations on the. Elm? Thank you. Thank you for having me with really is..

"And then after forty five minutes Martin Freeman says I'm going on an adventure. And then kind of the movie sorta starts we talked about this when we talked about the hobbit, Glenn you said that Peter Jackson made these movies because he wanted to recreate and live in and swim around in the sandbox of that world. And I think the makers of this film felt the same way about the nineteen sixty four film, Mary Poppins they wanted to recreate that world and play around in it. But at the same time, they didn't necessarily construct any real thrust. They didn't really give them. Any other reason to exist in that? And so while I loved so many individual components. I was seeing on the screen. I felt at times like I loved everything except the movie the movie that you thought of a lot was the hobbit the movie I've thought of a lot was Chitty Chitty, bang bang. When there's a lot of DNA shared here. Now, obviously because Chitty bang bang is off brand Disney, and it's very upfront about that. I think and it also takes a long time to get started. Especially if you're a kid and you're waiting for the fantasy stuff and yet I love to Chitty bang bang. I loved you to Chidi bang to this day more than Mary Poppins more than Santa music. Why why do I like the hydroxy more than the Oreo? I don't know except that I saw when I was four in something my family watch together. It was the only thing my dad would watch that I watched a he didn't watch my stuff. I didn't watch sports. So this is the thing we came together that has engendered a enduring love for it that I hope for your old kids will will feel for this movie. I don't know if they will. But but I hope that can happen. I didn't find any of the music. Catchy. But. Of course, that's not the kind of thing you can tell after one viewing. Right. We are going to hear the songs over and over again and kids are going to get these job. I found several of them really catchy. And I have been to so many musicals in the last let's say twenty years now where I found all of the music completely forgotten ball. And I think for me it was so surprising that I enjoyed the the songs as much as I did the songs are by the way, not by Lynn memo. Miranda people might expect they are from Mark. Shame. And and Scott Whitman who made who did the music and hairspray and some other stuff, but they are not lin-manuel Miranda's songs. The funny thing is I went into this film with quite modest expectations. Simply because live action musicals of recent decades. I there's a very spotty record with me. And also Mary Poppins is not particularly a favorite of mine. Although I realized at some point that I had the record because I know the songs extremely well. Mary Poppins was not a super favor of my I didn't go into this expecting to enjoy it nearly as much as I did..

"Like the bow fixing this song, you know. And so to me the songs didn't propel the movie in any way. Plot wise, Linda, you guys done it is so good. It is such a beautifully made really really skillfully done film. I had such a good time. I smiled and smiled. All through this thing. I was in fact, humming one of the songs on my way out one. I think it was the nowhere to go but up which is the closing number which I thought was extremely catchy. Here's several things that you guys have not talked. About at all the look of the film, the primary colored very bright colored. If you liked the dresses in LaLa land, the kind of rich look of that this is kind of that in a period setting where you're getting kind of children in bright, blue and green and red coats. You're getting a London that's very splashed with color, even as parts of it are almost black and white and gray in terms of the the lamps, and the the the city itself, you have a wonderful wonderful look to this film. I think there's an incredibly colorful two d animation sequence that I think they clearly put a lot of love into. And there is in the original as well. There are some very clever pieces of that. There are some numbers here that I think would be absolutely worthy of any. You know, film musical of maybe the last twenty or thirty years there is a kind of dance hall number that, Emily, blunt and. Lin manuel. Miranda do in a kind of vaudeville kind of sequence that I think is wonderful that it made me so happy as a person who loves musicals. I loved that final number that. I mentioned the nowhere to go. But up is one that when it was starting. I was thinking do I really need this? It seems like the movies over. And then as it grew. I really really came to enjoy it. I thought it was extremely sweet. We haven't talked yet about Colin Firth who plays kind of a heavy in this movie, which is very on Colin Firth. He rarely does that. And I think him is kind of a British mustache twirling, heavy is a very very clever touch. I think Emily blunt in this film is so so good. I think what she's doing in. This film is so hard, and it is so unusual so often when you see a film like this the nurturing character it's all about like, let's get Mary Poppins back story. Let's learn how Mary Poppins also needs love Mary Poppins. And this was true with Julie Andrews as well, Mary Poppins is a purely giving character she exists to come into your life. And because you are a small child. She exists just to help you. She doesn't want anything from you. There's no reciprocity, which with a real parent would be a very strange thing to promote right? Parents. Feelings and things like that Mary Poppins represents the idea of pure nurture, pure love and nurture and encouragement and yet also expectations should firmness or how you should behave. Absolutely. I think what she does here is so charming and so clever. She looks great. She's got kind of the you can see the photos. She's got kind of a perfect get up. Did you guys really not kind of enjoy the Emily blunt the way, she kind of gives little looks about certain things. You've got a perfect little way of looking startled by certain kind of. How dare you? She's none of it hit for you. Now. She's she's great in it. She's great at being Mary Poppins. Like, I said at the top of the show I had so much goodwill toward so many not only so many of the actors, but so much of what the actors were there to do and how much enthusiasm the actors brought to these roles. You can tell Linneman will maranda is. Is thrilled to be there in every season. That's kind of what Lin Manuel Miranda does. He's always thrilled to be there. The movie I thought of a lot when I was watching. This was Peter Jackson's the hobbit when he turned the hobbit a very slim book into like a nine hour movie trilogy. That begins with a very very very very very long set piece where they have a tea party. And you're just watching it like when are they going to start this movie?.

I wanted to see a musical version of the Meg know how many songs are we talking about ten? Yeah. Too many. Yeah. Going down on it would have been better. But if you're a fan of musical, this is definitely for you someone who's life. Not a love musicals dismay drive. You absolutely insane. Okay. I'm real upset right now. But that is okay. Just being honest man is. All right. My official rating because I have a heart and a soul, and I appreciate magic and love and happiness. This is a good. I want to see this again as soon as possible I want to get soundtrack. Oh, I love this movie. So and and like she was great like she was so captivating as Mary Poppins. It just when she was lingering all the time. You if you can detach yourself and your love of musical, you know, this way too many soften this movie. I think there's only one song it is unnecessary which is the turning turtle with Meryl Streep. All right. Let me we'll see a lot of songs and triple little light fantastic seven minutes. Two seconds. We did not need that. I forgot about atrocities and Dick Van Dyke. And they all are saying stupid, wacky things. I'm not nine years old ending. Triple little light fantastic. Is basically these super cattle super California Listrik expel doses of this version. Oh, I know. But it's not as cool. That's the problem. I knew like, oh, this isn't as cool. It's not even as catchy. Wow. No kids going to be sticking triple alive. Antastic disagree. Who what kids the kids that? I'm going to teach how to sing this when I see them on the on the train or downtown or anywhere kid. Someone's someone's pairs about assaulting for. For just sing for me child. Yeah. Tacit kick them out, and you can do it. I mean, it also other reason I kind of like that song is that In in. row in dungeons. And dragons if you're playing a rogue, there's a language called Dev's can't which is basically like this language like they were talking in triple a fantastic where certain people in a line of work have different dialogue of different words. They use. It was like thieves can't and dungeons and dragons, so yet another reason that song as amazing within the diagram of Mary, Poppins and dungeon dragon view. I just I in the middle is this you picture of your face. Got a song. It's seven minutes, man. And if you include the reprise the Dick Van Dyke is on it bumps up to eight minutes. That's a long time. Oh, it's so, but you also have BMX bikes in the background. Yeah. That's what I did. Schroeck in Jolie. Linden down lamp people singing songs to my children in the fog at night. Good times waiting for you know, Jack rippled show about the fog. Teach somebody lesson. The sewer house like what is this while we have the sewer? Wow. Okay. I mean, okay. Yes, we could go on about this. But we're not going to. But basically if you like musicals if you wanna see beautiful costumes beautiful production design, and if you like happiness and love and light in your life goes to this movie, if you're gonna sobbed EAC, and you have trouble sleeping five ticket. This is not cinematic Ambien legacy. Just Nestle into some some us. It's going to put you to sleep or. Bowers. We find theater man that tendon will come wake up on his over don't have to worry about that. Room nudge us as sir. Over this theater, so rude. Okay. So to recap the movies that we talked about on this episode Spiderman into these spiders, we both gave a solid good to really doing this movie. This is definitely family friendly as much as the action was intense. And there was a lot of violence. There's not really any blood like there was just it was just cartoon violence that you'd see on like. Not literally looney tunes. But a lot of action, but nothing that would kind of make it a little bit weird for parents and kids dec- together. So yeah. And great performances by everybody. So that gets a good Roma..

What I what I also liked is when she first appears, and you can see a lot of this in the trailers, and they have done quite a few feature etes is when Mary Poppins shows up with house, and Michael and Jane banks the first time they see her like they drop their bags. They look at it. And they're like Mary Poppins because as a kid like they almost put it in their heads like she did not exist. Like, they knew she was real. But then sing her as adults. There were like it was immediate reaction of like this you were real. But what was crazy is when the when the kids then had their own adventures, the Mary Poppins and air telling their dad, Michael banks about it. And they're like, oh my gosh. We did this and this and you're like, oh, stop it. That's just pretend and it was. Because as an adult we lose that whimsey, we lose that magic that we had when we were kids, and we saw like we saw the movie where he would on these mystical magical adventures and here he is as an adult. That's just not ever happened. I like aspect. I also with the kids. My biggest compliment I can give to that group of actors pixie Davis, Nathaniel Salah, and Joel Dawson, none of them felt like child actors like they just felt like actors little people. Yeah. Like that was really surprising because a lot of times shot actors. I mean, it is it is tough. I will absolutely give it to the child actors in that field. I get a tough thing to do. But these kids like they were just so immersive in their roles, the end, none of them felt like child actors, and that was really huge. Like, I was legitimately impressed by all of them. Meryl Streep was in this kind of surprisingly as a woah forgot about this. Yeah. That was the whole ten minutes. I want it back. I mean that ten minutes give Linneman lin-manuel another song. Couldn't do that. I got out a song where things are upside down and people are falling dancing around. And then she's of no longer of any use to the story. She's gone..

"It doesn't feel baked into this movie it doesn't feel like it is by design it feels like they realized late in the game like oh shit we gotta do you think this is what this actually about and maybe that's predators that's instilled by watching saving mr banks which it because that's obviously the position that movie takes and i think you know as we've agreed that movie socks santa's sack so i you know there's i think it's a mistake to take it as any sort of objective account who making us movie however i do i find myself wondering if there's not some colonel of truth to that that that mary poppins kind of some kind of pick i have to exactly yeah what stood there is that one line where the kids a matter their dad and mary poppins is like the who looks after your dad air you have me and your mommy have the maid's they your dad he just pushes all his troubles in alone and silent which i feel like you know something we talk about like the crisis of masculinity like hoodoo men turn to sure and i i i like that may poppins gives a voice this i feel like this is the conversation we're still really really really really really needing to have you know like like how do we encourage young beyond buoyed children to be able to share their emotions more sure you're in a liquid this touches on it and i i i'm not gonna shut out i i think you're right about that i agree with that i i feel like that's kind of a blood for the movie in the movie in that this film is sort of a series of blips as must it to a point of the film as its guy i mean maybe okay maybe i'm like sabotaging myself insane assume doesn't have much of a.

"Well a couple of things i've tumor more theories about this one i think the fact that my fair lady had like fancy pygmalion connections and was adopted in adopted and adapted gave it this intellectual heft whereas mary poppins being considered a kid's movie i think they're kaddoumi still looks down on kids movies i think we'll probably forever bill had it will forever look down on kids movies ussl that there is a serious movie and that there is a kid's movie and when you even have to nineteen 64 big musicals and unworthy in england with suffragette sir the one that's based on a serious text over the kids book is going to take it i don't think you're wrong there yeah i think that's i think that's a very correct reading of how the academy is going to lean overall what if i said i thought my family to aldo pouring it gets a little boring in places yeah that means three hours long a you know you can cut in easily cut a half hour that movie and and it's fine it's probably better i think mary poppins could super boring like in i mean honestly leave the ill the animated sequence just dies on the screen for me like it's twenty minutes long and it's just like alma yeah yeah and it just the the problem is doesn't give me anything about those characters you know and that's my thing would mary poppins overall is that even in the songs the songs don't develop characters they don't develop like they st a thing about the character which okay i get it in you have that but then it doesn't develop through the course the song the songs are very static for me they're clever there your worms i think you're completely right in the sense that they're uh from a melodic perspective their memorable in may i mean there's kraft in those songs that makes them stick in your head and there's no denying not and that gives the movie i think a really interesting cultural tenacity that otherwise it might not have but the songs to me are also their confections are kind of their marang you know they're they're they're empty aar dunning i know that fire i mean i think that they have what i love to see enemies a go.
