"Mary Poppins Returns" is an imperfect sequel but as a throw-away holiday film designed to provide a family viewing experience, it satisfies a need.

The sense of optimism never fades and we’re left with images that are more about the enduring power of love than the oppressive force of injustice.

Intended to be a feel-good extravaganza – one that sweeps aside considerations of logic and intelligence in a tide of exuberance that crests with an emotional high.

As shepherded by filmmakers with a penchant for visual storytelling, "Mortal Engines" is two hours well-spent.

A respectable venture that fails to generate the kind of gripping, compulsively watchable melodrama and adventure needed to keep the audience engaged.

As an alternative version of "Deadpool 2", "Once Upon a Deadpool" is more unfortunate than bad.
