Highly Suspect Reviews: Mary Poppins Returns

0 Submitted by on Tue, 18 December 2018, 11:37

Mary Poppins is back and it’s like she never left., assuming you understand that she’s a Time Lord and has regenerated into Emily Blunt. Michael (Ben Whishaw) and Jane (Emily Mortimer) are all grown up with problems of their own. Michael is a widower with three children and through his own dunderheadedness is going to lose the family home to a conniving bank CEO (Colin Firth). But never fear, here comes Mary Poppins to whip the family into shape, sing, dance, hang out with Lin Manuel Miranda (who pretty much is playing the Dick Van Dyke chimney-sweep role this time around) and generally turn reality on its ass. But what did our crew of reviewers think? Listen to Chris, George, Frank, Ben, and Aaron turn into giddy little kids again.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
