    Here is where I stand on the Mary Poppins stuff.
    I think they either should have chosen one of the other Mary Poppins books to recreate, "Yes there were others and they were quite successful and interesting.." OR they should have went the trippy dark route and just had Guillermo del Toro go the Pan's Labyrinth route with it and bring out the twisted side as far as they could go. After all there were plenty of scenes that to me could have had a darker side, even the parrot head on the stick seemed to be resisting its existence at times. Maybe it would have been better to make it PG-13 and go as close to R as possible spending more time in the paintings than before.

    Maybe people today just aren't that deep. 'It's for kids' seems to have become a cover. I watch people buying anything with wheels that moves faster than a child can run... for their children. With their limited attention spans and underdeveloped motor skills, they eventually get hurt. How is it those same children are not trusted to sit in one safe comfortable place and pay attention to a decant movie? Discuss...

    Only 12-year-olds would say the politics of Star Wars: Phantom Menace was sound, after Queen Amadala said something like "I will not choose a course of action that will lead to war" right after invasion and coersion was confirmed.

    I’ve never seen anyone as infatuated with Mary Poppins as Doug Walker is and I absolutely love that!
    Not only have my Brother and I seen it countless times, but we used to have a record with all the songs from the movie. We listened to it constantly! Since Doug already expressed everything that is magical and spectacular about Mary Poppins- especially the phenomenal climax- I don’t have to add anything.
    The original is already practically perfect in every way. Fair play to anyone who saw and enjoyed the sequel, but it wasn’t necessary.

  • KrossoverGod
    KrossoverGod 6 months ago +3

    6:42 to me the answer to that question is arrogance.
    You have some writer that decides to give their own vision, their own personal fanfiction about how the story continues, arrogantly refusing to even acknowledge the existance of previous continuations to the source material.
    When you think about it this happens all the time, and usually with awful results: the Star Wars sequels and how they ignored the expanded universe; Son of the Mask ignoring that the story moved beyond Stanley Ipkiss in the comics; Terminator sequels doing the same story of machines trying to kill Sarah/John Connor over and over again ignoring that in comics and video games various interesting facets of the universe were explored; Fant4stic ignoring *everything* about the Fantastic Four beside the basic premise shown in the 2005 movie... and I could go on.

    • Geoffrey Richards
      Geoffrey Richards 6 months ago

      @KrossoverGod What gave you the impression that I was defending their stories? I'm only stating that I can understand their decision to disregard the EU because it's too big and convoluted for most people to keep track of. The movies are the primary material most are familiar with anyhow, so it makes sense that they would stick exclusively to those entries when writing newer material.
      I mean, that's what the EU did as well, and it had just as many problems as the Sequel Trilogy has.

    • KrossoverGod
      KrossoverGod 6 months ago

      @Geoffrey Richards nah you're completely wrong. It sounds like you're actually the writer for one of those franchises and you're trying to defend your position despite it being a lost cause.
      First of all, if you compare those writers to amateur fans that's not a point in their favour. Second, again you're free to write your own version, but you should also make sure that you're not disregarding other stories that had merits, that you're not just doing what they already did only worse, especially when, like in the case of Mary Poppins, you are the adapted media and they are the original media. Third, your point of view would be justified if we were talking about stories with a particular vision, but all the crappy examples I brought are tired and by-the-numbers, they're obvious cash grabs without any soul or heart, so they're unexcusable.

    • Geoffrey Richards
      Geoffrey Richards 6 months ago

      @KrossoverGod No, they're doing the same thing all those fan-writers are doing - they're doing their own interpretations of what they see happening after the original trilogy ended. Heck, I bet before you read any of the EU material that you had your own ideas of what happened afterward. Everyone has. Who doesn't want to write those ideas down?
      I mean, if I wanted to write a story about a certain character but couldn't because some other fanfic writer already did it, does that mean I'm arrogant for wanting to tell my own take of the story instead of adhering their version? It seems pretty unjust.

    • KrossoverGod
      KrossoverGod 6 months ago +1

      @Geoffrey Richards it's arrogance because it's ignoring previous works assuming your own creations are going to be better by default. The example you mentioned about people rewriting stories from the prequels is quite the opposite, because it's paying homage to the original works by aknowledging the good things in them but adding something new and trying to improve them.
      That's what they did at Marvel too: after the success of one movir they didn't make up new adventures for the heroes, they looked at the stories from the comics picking up the best and most memorable ones, and adapted them trying to improve them when possible.

    • Geoffrey Richards
      Geoffrey Richards 6 months ago

      @KrossoverGod Heck, what about the times when Lucas himself retconned established elements from the EU when he was writing the prequels? He wasn't bound by the lore other authors added.

    doug making a mary poppins video: i want to review this sequels because it piss me off the potential that it could have because i love the original so much and most people don't realize that because theres people that don't want to think that even kids film can have mature and timeless themes that even adults can enjoy.

    viewers: oh doug you are exaggerate things and enjoy what you have

    any average youtber making a video about game of thrones: everyone is hating on the last season so we will make a shit ton of clickbait rant videos shitting on it to earn a lot of viewers to make our channels grow like corporate sluts, even if we don't give a shit about game of thrones and we are doing this to get attetion from the trent.


    Moral of the story: if you are so busy beeing "unique" than beeing yourself, you ended up beeing like everyone else doing the same thing

    The best movies when it comes to a sequel was proven the smart move with Iron Man. The proven position is that the same actor can push the movie to a higher value. Not in money although that does come with it. For me using the same actor you see how they explore there character and what they bring with there own personality. Iron Man proved this was a very key value in movies. Batman using Christian Bale each movie sales increased. Yet the second they change the actor the sales starts low. Marvel crushing the box office proven star power of using the same actors has a lot of value. Billions to be exact. Talking the number one movie in history. The same actors growing and learning and seeing how they go about there changes through out there events shows added character. The moment you switch the actor in mid stride drops the value and things start all over. Same with NASA. The moment a new government is in place the direction changes and they can't seem to figure out what there doing. One year there going to the moon next there going to mars then the next they don't know what there doing. With Mary Poppins there does not seen to be a way to bring this classic to what is today with out messing it up. To really fix it they would have to change the entire direction. Why not have something happen in another country? There was many areas they could have gone and done even the book idea you brought up yet they seem to have done flat in there abilities to work this out. Disney is doing in my view to much attempting to manage everything and truth is there limits are only human.

    Geez we get it. You hate the movie. This is like the third video on it.
    As someone who watched the movie after your review, it’s clear there’s a LOT of bias cuz the movie is actually a lot of fun. Obviously not as good as the original, but if it did things too similarly then we’d get complaints that it was a repeat

    • Geoffrey Richards
      Geoffrey Richards 6 months ago +2

      @ZNKChannel I seriously doubt he's calling anyone out. He seems to be merely expressing his own thoughts on the film and his [understandable] concern for the direction which Disney seems to be veering.

    • Geoffrey Richards
      Geoffrey Richards 6 months ago +2

      I think that might be a bit unfair. His first video is his comedic critique of the film and the 2nd video was him attempting to reimagine the film. The third video (this one) is simply him having a fair conversation with another collaborator and giving his honest thoughts on the film without any overexaggerated reactions or whatever you see in his reviews.

  • Daniel Randolph

    The prequels weren't for 12-year-olds, they were for children, and even then no, because of the political shit. Say what you want about the sequels, but they kept more of a general audience vibe, instead of pandering to kids with Jar Jar but then tonally whip-lashing with politics for no reason. The humor may not be great in the new films, but at least it isn't fart jokes and poop jokes.
