Three sentence movie reviews: Saving Mr. Banks

I’m going to spend the first sentence of three telling you that I thought the soundtrack was incredibly intrusive, subtracting a lot from what was otherwise a good picture.  That said, this is a very good movie, with Emma Thompson hitting it out of the park as the uptight, persnickety P.L. Travers.  The supporting cast is also very good,* and the costumes are particularly of good quality.

Cost: $5.00
Where watched:  Regal Tigard Stadium 12 with Mom and Aunt Carol

This is a very good poster.

*Colin Ferrell is in particularly good form and the Edwardian fashions suit him quite well.
**I loved Travers’ form-fitting and structured wool dresses, set against breezy LA style.  The dark green one with the fitted waist and buttons was my favorite, but oh, the camel coat with blue lining she wore near the end?  I covet that tremendously.

  1. I can see what you are saying about the music. We took mom to see it as well. It was a lot more poignant than I expected.

  2. Music is something I've noticed a lot more since I started watching the Best Pictures. Bad music can detract a lot from an otherwise decent movie. Also, I don't think I realized that Ferrell was in this. I think he has a lot more range than people tend to give him credit for.
