It's not that surprising. Neither of the songs submitted were particularly good.

Thanks, tsom! :oops: Yeah, I suspected that could be the case. But, do you mean the links could not be accessed in some countries? That's a shame. Although in a few hours it'll be released in the rest of the territories too. By the way, I've added the score tracks to my previous post.

It's funny because the Hollywood Foreign Press Association didn't nominate any songs from 'Mary Poppins' either. In fact, 'Mary Poppins' and 'Mary Poppins Returns' were nominated in the same categories! Only four Golden Globe nominations.

That's really curious. I can't believe they didn't nominate any song from Mary Poppins. And I think the songs from Mary Poppins Returns are better than some of the nominated ones. I'm not surprised by their exclusion, though. The Golden Globes have a reputation of choosing the songs by the popularity of their performers rather than by the quality of the songs themselves. Anyway, Disney must be very happy with these nominations. The film was nominated in almost every other category in which it had chances.

They love celebrities. Especially in that category. Fortunately, the correlation between the Golden Globe nominations and the Oscar nominations in that category is terrible. Only 'Shallow' and 'All the Stars' are safe, in my opinion. And 'Shallow' will win the Oscar.

I agree.

Maybe they are taking into account too his abilities to sing and dance. Also, we haven't seen the movie yet. I admit that when I first watched the trailer I thought he was overacting a lot, but after watching more footage of him I don't find his acting so bad, so maybe he's better in the film than it seems.

Your precious Richard Sherman loves them.

God, you're so biased. I hope you're still making the most out of 'The Nutcracker and the Four Realms'.

You're welcome! :-) Just a few more hours to go until the soundtrack is available in all territories! Thanks for alerting us, though!

I'm biased because I don't share your opinion? So, if I loved the songs then I would be objective? That's such an irrational way of thinking.

I don't care what Richard thinks of the songs. That bares no weight on my opinion. By the way, we don't know what he really thinks of them. We only have accounts from the songwriters who aren't exactly a reliable source. But even if he didn't like them, there's no way he'd ever tell the public. He's too classy and kind-hearted for that.

I honestly don't understand why the opinion of someone about something as subjective as art bothers you to the point you feel compelled to be rude and condescending to them. Perhaps it's time you do some introspection and analyze the reasons why you behave the way that you do.

You can hear his opinion right here (09:47): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qtbu-DSdRw8

And please, everyone knows you feel like you have to hate these songs because Richard didn't write them. You've made it clear many times.

Thank you for sharing! It was great seeing James Baxter talk about the movie. It's been so long, I hadn't realized how much I missed that. Not just the movies themselves but the delightful making ofs where you see the animators working on their animations desks and talk about the process of creating the movie. It was also nice seeing Karen Dotrice talk about the original film and share her memories with us from the set. Dick Van Dyke is still such a charmer. He has such a wonderful spirit and zest for life. I can't believe he's 92 years old! He's so full of energy!

He's totally overacting to the point of caricature. Couple that with his ridiculous British accent, I can't possibly fathom how the voters thought not only this was good acting but better than so many other performances this year.

I knew that already. Again, that's a secondhand account of what he supposedly said.

No. I find it disrespectful and unfair that Disney didn't let him write the songs but that doesn't influence whether I like the new ones or not. I felt the same when Menken was replaced on Frozen but that didn't stop me from enjoying the movie's songs. It's clear you're simply trying to find any excuse to silence and invalidate opinions you don't agree with.

Just finished listening to the soundtrack... And...

THEY. HAVE. ABSOLUTELY. NAILED. IT!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

These songs and score are freaking beautiful and masterfully written. Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman have not only did the Sherman Brothers proud, but they should do the songs and score for any future Disney Animated films pronto! I can't wait to see the film now more than ever and those who "criticize" it are just going to be white noise to me and I say: good.

In fact, to me this is the most memorable set of songs we ever had for a Disney film since The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Not to knock the other Disney films, but mostly they had a few songs that were great standouts but not an entire memorable/ear-wormy package of them. It's been that long.

The lyrics are so clever! I'm reading the novelization too and it's impressive how much they've used the books in this film.

Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman are such a wonderful composing team aren't they? Plus I heard their next project is a Broadway musical adaptation of the classic film Some Like It Hot.

I haven't had a chance to listen to the full soundtrack yet but any comparison to Hunchback is a win in my book since it really is one of the last few great Disney musicals (Tarzan is the other one for me). Can't wait to listen to all the music now!

I'm so glad to hear that they really drew material from the books! That was something I was looking most forward to.

The soundtrack is excellent. It’s faithful to the Sherman Brothers and to the British music hall sound that inspired them. Emily’s take on Mary can stand on its own, although my eyebrow raised a bit when she went into full-out Cockney speak, but I think it’s justified within the song and it’s not really at odds with the nature of the character— Mary Poppins really is more at home with the working class even though she works for the middle class and presents herself as posh. Lin-Manuel seems right at home as Jack— truthfully, Miranda is merely an adequate actor, his talents lie elsewhere— but he has an old fashioned charm and charisma, not unlike Dick Van Dyke which makes him an excellent counterpart and companion to Mary Poppins. Special shoutout to Meryl Streep as Cousin Topsy, who delivers a delightful performance in this Russian-inspired (and a little Yiddish, I think) number. It’s a shame nobody was making musicals during Streep’s heyday because she could have been a true musical star.

Angela Lansbury’s song would have had added poignance if it had been sung by Julie Andrews as intended. I wish they might have changed that song a bit... it’s clear Mary and the balloon lady are meant to have a “moment,” which doesn’t make as much sense between Lansbury and Blunt because the history isn’t there. But that’s a really small nitpick that will probably only bother me.

Oh! And the return of that beautiful, full-bodied Disney chorus... I could swoon. I’m probably going to cry in the movie theatre. But Emma Thompson-style, not um, real PL Travers style.

PS I’ve read Karen Dotrice, the original Jane Banks, makes a cameo in the film. Does anyone know what part she plays? Is it a fleshed out character or just a mere quick bit? A part of me really hopes she plays Winifred Banks.

I saw the movie last night and I absolutely loved it. I've long wanted to see Marc Shaiman write songs for a Disney musical and he did not disappointment. The songs and the choreography are wonderful and Emily Blunt is so fantastic as Mary Poppins, I didn't even find myself comparing her to Julie Andrews. Considering how highly I think of Andrews's performance in Mary Poppins, that's saying a lot. I also thought Lin-Manuel Miranda was completely charming. I mostly know him as a singer/songwriter, so this was truly my first time seeing him act and he just radiates joy the entire time he's on screen.

I was all smiles through the entire movie and there's just a big-hearted, cozy feeling that leaves one in high spirits by the end of it. However, Rob Marshall handles the emotional moments nicely, too. Kudos to Marshall for successfully capturing that old-school Disney vibe. I almost felt like I was watching a movie musical in 1965, right down to an overture playing over the opening titles.

I do wonder what context the score track Rescuing Georgie is all about. It sounds like something from a thrilling chase sequence.
