Where does Downtown Abbey: A New Era land on the Banana Meter?

Hello and welcome to another weekend of the Banana Meter! For those not aware of how this works, let me explain it to you. First, our critics check out a film. Then, they rate it on our scale of 0-100%, we gather the percentage from all of your critics and that’s how we get our rating on the Banana Meter.

What is the Banana Meter scale, you ask? 

When a film hits above 85% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Bonafide Bananas status.
When a film hits between 55-84% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Ripe status.
When the film hits under 55%, it means it hit Sour Status.

Our next film to hit the Banana Meter is
Downtown Abbey: A New Era

Here is what our Ripe Banana Critics are saying about the film:

Banana Meter Rating: 73%

I’ve never seen a single second of the “Downton Abbey” seriers, but I actually enjoyed “A New Era.” Unfortunately, one of the storylines is far more interesting than the other and the editing is a bit wonky.

Downton Abbey: A New Era is undeniably charming. This sequel is full of emotion, tons of laughter, a family secret, and a film within the film.

You’re likely to appreciate what Fellowes, Curtis and the cast have done to keep the story going in a way that doesn’t feel like a waste of time or money, as these things sometimes do.

Downton’s numerous fans will relish the elegance, the glamour and the familiariity of it all, but this sequel – the dialogue in particular – feels tired. It’s pleasant, undemanding entertainment, but those aristocratic batteries are in serious need of a re-charge.

Downton Abbey might’ve lost a bit of it’s original polish – but it will never lose it’s enchantment! Spending a lovely two hours back w/the delightful Crawley family & ‘friends’ as they evolve, still never losing their quick witted quips or appeal.

While light and breezy, Downton Abbey: A New Era delivers tons of heart & genuine laughs. Doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but in this case, you don’t want it to.

A film crew takes over Downton which results in some eyebrow-raising and hilarious shenanigans. Overall it’s still an enjoyable, genteel entertainment that period drama fans have come to know and love.

Downton Abbey: A New Era is an utterly delightful picture. It’s comfort food for longtime fans of the series. If they continue making these films every few years, then I’ll continue to watch them.

I love the show. I loved this movie. I maybe a tad biased but I don’t care. It’s so nice to see every character (minus Talbot) back. I thoroughly enjoyed this.

Banana Meter Rating: 70%

A New Era follows the formula we’ve come to expect from a Downton Abbey movie, but its most emotional and meaningful moments make it an enjoyable watch.

Downton Abbey: A New Era feels like a warm, cozy blanket on a rainy day. It’s tried and true, exactly what audiences need it to be. Nothing more, nothing less.
