My Take on the Movie
This has to be one of my and my families favorite Disney movies. You would think with animated movies and such that it would be one of them, but the combination of characters, music and a great story make this a movie that we come back to over and over again. Julie Andrews defines the role of Mary Poppins and does it in an amazing way, and who can forget having tea on the ceiling of a room or popping through a picture to have an amazing day. All of this plus music that sticks in your head makes this a movie that will definitely last the test of time. I cannot believe that it has been around 50 years already! This new blu-ray was amazing in quality and the bonus features were all ones that I had not experiences in the past and I really learned a lot about the movie itself by watching them. All-in-all this was a great new addition to our collection and I know you will like it too!
