Comfortable predicting that whoever wins here wins it all.

Singin’ in the Rain might be the objective better film (although it would be even better without the modern ballet sequence), but Mary Poppins has the best selection of songs written for a feature. That’s what makes this a tough choice for me.

One of my family’s favorite stories is that at age 4, I learned to rewind the VCR so I could watch Mary Poppins on repeat.

With that said, Singin’ in the Rain is the movie I could still watch on repeat today, it is my “go to” film when introducing folks to classic film, and it truly embodies every aspect of what I think of as a splashy, gorgeous, old school movie musical.

To be honest, I don't think it's fair for us to make such a hard choice between Singin' in the Rain and Mary Poppins… It's very cruel for us to choose a "better" so called between the two classic movies✨… In fact, I don't think there's really existing a "perfect", and we know that every movie has its own special charm💫…… So I just chose my personal favourite, which holds the most special meaning for me and saved me😘😢… I thought it's the only access to choose between two real classic.

I like them both but chose Mary Poppins to avenge the Muppets.
