Saving Mr. Banks

All right people, it's trailer time! Today we have the story of Walt Disney creating 'Mary Poppins'. Here's the trailer.




Just try and tell me that doesn't looks good! I'm so excited! It looks incredibly interesting, well acted, beautifully done, and just plain great! I absolutely love the idea of Tom Hanks playing Disney, he'll do a fantastic job. It looks whimsical and witty and I think it will capture that glorious spirit we all know Walt Disney had.

The story itself is so intriguing! How did 'Mary Poppins' come to be? I don't know about you, but I want to find out.

Honestly, I have very little to say besides that it looks extremely promising!

UPDATE: I have Since seen this movie and written a review, here.

  1. I want to see it!! I grew up on Mary Poppins! I wonder why it is PG-13 though?

  2. Well, it says it's for thematic elements including some unsettling images. Perhaps something traumatic happens to Emma Thompsons' character when she was young?

Saving Mr. Banks ~ Delightful!

Yesterday afternoon, I walked into my local theatre to watch 'Saving Mr. Banks'. I didn't exactly know what to expect because I had heard some clashing reviews on the subject. I did have high hopes which I expressed in my previous post. I left the theatre about as pleased as I can possibly be with a movie watching experience! I absolutely adore this film!

'Saving Mr. Banks', as you probably know, is the story of how Walt Disney and his team managed to create the beloved 'Mary Poppins' film. A major part of this conquest was convincing the author to sign over the rights to the story! Throughout the movie you watch flashbacks to the authors childhood where the real life inspiration of 'Mary Poppins' takes place. Let me tell you, it is an engrossing and totally immersive situation!

Part of what makes this movie so fantastic is the perfect casting. I loved every single character. I'm not even exaggerating. Paul Giamatti was a true delight every mome…

The Monuments Men ~ A Must See!

About a week ago 'The Monuments Men' hit the theatres. I have been anticipating this film for so long and finally I have seen it! Best of all, it did not disappoint! I first showed you the trailer back in August. This has been a long time coming! Time to get down to business.

'The Monuments Men' is a movie about a small group of art scholars, historians, and the like trying to save as much art from the Nazis as possible. Naturally, this is set in WWII. The cast is star studded and primed for a great performance!

This is a calm mature movie. it isn't going to shock or thrill you with flash and pomp. The story and emotion will suffice perfectly. That and the fact that visually, it's absolutely incredible! The detail as well as the grand images are both exacted with such correct perfection. I was pleased with every, single, second.

It would be rather redundant to go ever the fact that a cast filled with old pros and veterans knocked it out of the park. I do want t…

The Hobbit ~ Beware!

I saw the first installment of the 'Hobbit' trilogy opening day yesterday. I was greatly saddened. It. Is. Bad. So bad that I wish I hadn't seen it. So bad, that I don't think I will waste my time on any of the future installments. Peter Jackson took a wonderful, complete, enjoyable story and adulterated it nearly beyond recognition. Now, before you think I am just a purist who despises change, I'm not! Yes, I read all the 'Lord of the Rings' books as well as 'The Hobbit' growing up, and I understand that things change when you are translating a story from book to movie. This went beyond that. I have many specific problems.



First, they added Radagast the brown wizard. Why in the heck of all creation would someone think that was a good idea? Let's add a totally unnecessary character and side plot that only confuses the audience and draws away from the real focus! It was terrible from every angle. His costume was tacky, his actions and presence we…
