Film Review: Saving Mr. Banks (Year)

Walt Disney must persuade P.L. Travers, the author of the Mary Poppins books, to sign over the film rights so he can finally make the Mary Poppins movie he’s been perusing for 20 years.

Emma Thompson is particularly good as the curmudgeonly P.L. Travers. Tom Hanks plays Walt Disney as good as he ever does.

 

Rating: ★★★★☆

Film Review: Jupiter Ascending (2015)

Plot: Nonsense about a woman from earth being a space princess who has to save the galaxy or something.

Visual very impressive, in a videogame graphics kind of way, not much sense of reality. Some reasonable action scenes. The plot and characters seem to be lifted from a cartoon.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
