This is the second ever CGI Barbie movie, for y’all’s information. Subject The old Barbie movies have terrible graphics, but to be honest, the moving part of the animation is pretty okay. Rapunzel is a great character. She’s like 2015 Cinderella–good and kind and loving even when others (*cough*Gothel*cough*) are cruel to her. Form Okay–the story is almost exactly like Cinderella (2015). The girl is mistreated by an evil jealous lady who makes her a servant, she meets a prince but doesn’t know who he is, she gets invited to a ball by said prince, and she eventually forgives the evil jealous … Continue reading Barbie as Rapunzel
I have watched this movie, like, twenty times. Twenty-one, actually, I watched it again yesterday. So, I could have done this review like a year ago, but better late than never! Subject The movie is a live-action reboot of the 1950 Disney film, which is an adaptation of the fairy tale by Charles Perrault. (Yeah, I know there are actually a lot more versions than just Perrault. I think I have studied “Cinderella” more than any other fairy tale because I was going to write a fractured fairy tale novel. FYI, the project has been put away for now.) It … Continue reading Cinderella (2015)
This was OBVIOUSLY not nearly as good as the first two, in the same way the second was OBVIOUSLY not nearly as good as the first one. The quality was pretty much what I expected, maybe a little better. I am willing to accept it, though, as legitimate, good Cars canon, because it wasn’t as heartbreaking as I thought it would be when I *sob* saw the teaser and *sob* saw McQueen’s crash. (I do feel a little cheated, though, since the crash wasn’t a huge part of the movie. Eh. What’s a teaser for except to be a red herring?) They … Continue reading Cars 3
Subject I used to think that the Diane Kaarina Barbie was the worst Barbie ever (then I saw the Erica Lindbeck Barbie, heheheh…jk). I thought Diane Kaarina was a bad actress and that was why she didn’t make a good Barbie. Re-watching this movie, I realize that Diane Kaarina is a fine actress; she’s just as good as Kelly Sheridan. The problem is, she’s not Barbie. She doesn’t sound like her. Kelly Sheridan and Kate Higgins (Barbie: Life in the Dreamhouse; also Taylor in Fairy Secret, haha) are the only Barbie voices I like, don’t ask me why ’cause I have no idea. Okay, … Continue reading Barbie: A Fairy Secret
It isn’t super high quality, but I watched it the day I got a wart frozen off my foot. My foot hurt really bad and this medium-paced movie relaxed me and distracted me from the pain. So, snaps to Puppy Chase! Subject Summary Barbie (Erica Lindbeck) and her sisters take a trip to Hawaii for Chelsea’s dance competition, but get lost and separated from their puppies while visiting a dancing horse show. Characters We have Barbie and her sisters. Her sisters are, in order by age, Skipper (Kazumi Evans), Stacy (Claire Corlett), and Chelsea (Alyssya Swales). I am really glad … Continue reading Barbie and Her Sisters in a Puppy Chase
If anyone thinks that Barbie movies have always been cheap marketing tools with stories that only appeal to little girls, this moving movie musical will change your mind.
(Based on Mark Twain’s The Prince and the Pauper)
Princess Anneliese (Kelly Sheridan) and indentured servant Erika (also Kelly Sheridan), two girls who are miraculously identical, switch positions in a twist of fate that requires perseverance, intelligence, and love to save their kingdom.
Destiny is written in your heart – This theme is a line in a song and quoted by Continue reading Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper
For the record, I haven’t read the book, so I walked in with no expectations except what I had gotten from the trailer I saw and a couple online movie reviews. Just saying, I was really proud that it got a higher rating on Rotten Tomatoes than Beauty and the Beast (2017), which I will be writing a review on…probably…eventually…but maybe not, since my opinion can be summed up with, “It was good, but not as good as the original which didn’t need a reboot.” Subject Summary After a profound atheist’s wife becomes a Christian, he sets out to prove with … Continue reading The Case For Christ
