Julie and Dick!
Hi guys, in preparation for the sequel 'Mary Poppins Returns'. Here is my review on the 1964 film!
I was really amazed by the visualisation of Mary Poppins, especially when 2D animations come to life considering this film was released in the swinging 60's and there were no CGI back then!
I knew Julie Andrews from The Sound of Music, which came out the year later after this film. But Mary Poppins was the first Julie Andrews' film I watched since my childhood days.
This film cheers me up, especially the songs because it's vibrant, colourful and interesting.
I could not get the song out of my head! Especially 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' and 'A Spoonful of Sugar', I must give credits to the Sherman brothers for these 2 wonderful songs ever!
The song I cried literally was 'Feed the Birds', because from I read is that, the actress playing the bird feeder in that particular number in the film has passed on (or something like that). She only made a minor appearance in the film!
Before Oppa Gangnam Style, there was Step in Time. The famous Chimney dance was the highlight of film's climax! It makes want to dance.
Are you all ready for the film this coming Christmas? If you are, get ready for a step in time!
What's that song again?!?!?!!
