Mary Poppins Returns is getting mixed reviews, but critics would probably say the same about the original if it was released today. It’s hard to not be cynical about this kind of candy-coated Disney whimsy, but what’s the point? Sure, it’s a bit strange to see hand-drawn animation and this level of wide-eyed theatrics in 2019, but it’s also a little refreshing. In other words, if you go into Mary Poppins Returns expecting anything other than singing penguins and dancing lamp-lighters, maybe the movie ISN’T the problem. (B)

Mommy Movie Review: Can Your Kids See “Aquaman”

Director James Wan was not going to let Aquaman be another gazillion-dollar disappointment for DC, so he threw everything he could at this movie.
It has mermaids, not-quite-as-pretty mermen, talking fish-people and a sea-princess who looks almost too much like Ariel. There are also dinosaurs, battle-sharks, a drum-playing octopus, the Kaiju monster from Pacific Rim (for some reason) and I haven’t even gotten to the main characters, yet. You’re left with a mish-mash of every super-hero movie you’ve seen in the past five-years (except this one is underwater), with a little Raiders of the Lost Ark and Flash Gordon thrown in for good measure. It makes for a fun, but cluttered movie that sometimes leaves you wanting just a little more of Aquaman‘s biggest asset: Jason Momoa.
His special quality of winking, let’s-get-a-beer charm is on constant display here, but it gets diluted in the process of turning Momoa into a HERO. He’s the reason I’m giving Aquaman a B-, but you’re probably just wondering what your kids will get from it. Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Justice League” EARLY & FOR FREE

Is it weird that I don’t really CARE if the new Justice League movie is good? My expectations are so low now, after Batman v. Superman and then the shocking let-down that was Suicide Squad. Wonder Woman was a refreshing surprise, but I don’t know if she and that golden-lasso are strong enough to save this whole movie. Jason Mamoa plays Aquaman in Justice League though and, if I were completely honest with you, I’d probably say that’s enough for me. It’s always better to see a potentially disappointing movie for free though, right? Continue reading →
