Everybody seems to be sharing their thoughts about the Barbie movie, so I will, too. You’re welcome! Normally, I would offer up my opinion with a caveat of “I humbly offer these measly ideas and they’re probably wrong
I look forward to your writing every week-I love this review. I had no interest in the movie til now! My fave 21st century mantra is “you do you.” I bought my niece “astronaut Barbie” and “computer programmer Barbie,” but now that she’s a teen she’s into makeup artistry and fashion design. The awesome thing about the 21st century is that there is less gatekeeping as to who can be a feminist. And I totally remember you doing the Pee Wee Herman dance at MHS in the halls after the first movie came out😆 so sad about Paul Rubens and Sinead O’Connor. She was one of my high school heroes.
I read this before I saw the movie, and was able to appreciate Barbie even more. Thank you for sharing your glorious writing. You truly capture my own thoughts, and give me new ones, too.
Great lively and always perceptive writing. Too corrections, though. Greta Gerwig didn't win any Oscars (she got nominated 3 times). US soccer team is not shredding the field this time. There are better teams out there and US will be lucky to get to the semifinals. I hope I am wrong.
I loved the movie. And it's possible I love this review more.
This should get printed in NY Times…
Really! Send it in!!!
Good stuff as usual! ♥️♥️♥️
This is a great write up, and thank you for using words I have to look up the meaning of. Learning and winning by reading your work my friend😘 Keep being weird Barbie, but I think you encompass all of what Barbie is and can be! 💗
