I'm very pleased and agree with a comment from May 16th.
In regard to how this was presented, remember we are in a different era, and
the plot went accordingly...with trying to vie for a viewing audience of the children of today.
The sequences of each song were very entertaining. We all know by now there will not be an Oscar here, but those in my home were happy with it.

Sad to say, I had high hopes for this one, but in the end couldn't even finish the movie. The plot was not 2+ hours worth of writing and just couldn't hold my attention.

Cute, but doesn't hold a candle to the original 1964 classic. Emily Blunt tries her best to channel her own 'Mary Poppins' but she often lacks the warmth and kindness of her predecessor, instead seeming more standoffish and prim; her scene where she speaks about 'where the lost things go' shows a glimmer of a warmer Mary, but not enough to carry the entire film.

Other highlights include a trip to the Royal Daulton Music Hall which comes from additional adventures in P.L. Travers' beloved series.

Watch and reminisce as you are reitnroduced to the grown-up children Mary Poppins originally entranced, as well as the incredible world that is entered into once more. We get to know more about Mary Poppins, and while the plot is not the strongest aspect of the film, the creativity, color, filmography, and pure delight make up for it. A wonderful sequel to the unsurpassed original, Mary Poppins Returns does appropriate homage to its' predecessor while at the same time colorfully taking on new life in the skilled hands of cast and crew. With subtle reminders of the original movie, as well as a plethora of guest stars (Dick Van Dyke, Meryl Streep, and Angela Landsbury are only a few), this is a delightful movie for fans of the original (as well as new fans) to enjoy. Perhaps the most satisfying moment is that of Dick Van Dyke's skillful dance number - done without aid by the talented 93 year old.

I really wanted to just love this movie. While it was entertaining, it was a little too dark & depressing, I thought. Some of the songs are wonderful, the others - not so much. Lin-Manuel Miranda's cockney accent leaves something to be desired. It just can't hold up to original, but they certainly tried. I really enjoyed seeing Dick Van Dyke and Angela Lansbury, however.

This was a nice watch with me. Emily Blunt replaces Julia Andrews as Mary Poppins, while a bit more reserved, still had that magic. There were some amazing sequences, and the child actors brought tears to my eyes with some of the songs. However, other songs were boring and felt like a drag. It would almost feel like the pacing is uneven with some tear-jerking moments, some fun moments, and some really boring moments. I can't remember a single song on this movie and still have the old Mary Poppins songs still in my mind.

This movie reminded me of the old classic "It's a Wonderful Life" , it's a B & W movie made in 1946, and I couldn't help compare this movie to that movie because they both dealt with the same issues. I would 100% recommend someone into films to watch "It's a Wonderful Life" movie if you like the narrative of this movie, but felt something was lacking in the way it was executed. I think this classic is way better than this modern movie which feels like a patch-job in comparison to that.

As a fan of the original movie, I was a little disappointed as it didn't quite have the same magic. I thought Emily Blunt's portrayal of Mary Poppins was a bit officious and not as charming as Julie Andrews.

Nothing to really dislike here-- Emily Blunt is a very good MP and the rest of the cast is good as well. Lots of imaginative production numbers.
But (you knew the "but" was coming, didn't you), the music doesn't live up to the original and it just seemed to go on a bit too long. However, in today's environment where good, family movies and musicals of any kind are scarce, Mary Poppins Returns is a welcomed sequel.

Absolutely excellent. It's a movie for adults as well as kids and I liked it even better than the original (which I loved). With this cast, how could it not be great! Highly recommend.

"Overall, I really enjoyed Mary Poppins Returns. I think it was a fun movie with a great cast with good chemistry with each other who loved their characters and who had a great deal of fun. Emily Blunt steals the show as Mary Poppins..."

40 quotes already in IMDb. Thanks to the contributors. Like to add these two related to the film's best song "The Place Where Lost Things Go":

Oh, listen to the three of you. You're all worrying far too much. After all, you can't lose what you've never lost.
===
Nothing's gone forever, only out of place. So when we need her touch and loving gaze "Gone but not forgotten" is the perfect phrase. Smiling from a star
that she makes glow. Trust she's always there... Watching as we grow. Find her in the place... Where the lost things go...
