“Barbie” Review

Barbie suffers a crisis that leads her to question her world and her existence.

Have you seen the first LEGO movie from 2014 yet? Or how about it’s sequel in 2019? If you’ve seen either of those, this will be a slightly less subtle version of those stories about a toy leaving it’s realm to find itself but being betrayed by a loved one while a nefarious Will Ferrell lurks about doing nefarious things that end up not being all that nefarious but are still somewhat concerning. I don’t necessarily have the vocabulary to positively say this is a polemic and performative woke story without sounding like I’m wearing a red cap, but it is what it is and I do believe that this type of material that knows what the current situation is, has a progressive opinion about it, and bangs you over the head with the message is truly needed.

I just wish I could get into the music a little more, but from my understanding I’m in the vast minority there, maybe you’ll have a better musical appreciation than I did. I was pretty happy with the poppy stuff in the first quarter of the film, but from there it just kind fizzled out.
