Luke reviews Barbie


Now despite all the previous Barbie movies, this one is actually live-action. Yeah, live-action. It also has Margot Robbie as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken. Now if that little fact interests you, then here’s the plot. All the different types of Barbie’s and Ken’s live in a place called Barbieland. When Barbie (called Stereotypical Barbie) starts to realise strange things are happening to her, she finds out the kid who’s playing with her in the real world is having some problems. So she sets off to the real world to find this kid and help her. She also brings Ken (called Beach Ken) along for the ride when he stows away in her car. Now this movie might be hard to accept at first, so you probably need to see it more than once to fully accept it. Also, it may not seem like it, but this movie has two really good points that may not be clear to you. So I’m going to explain them briefly to you. First, the Barbie toy was a revolutionary toy for girls. Showing that no matter who you are you can do anything. It’s also really diverse both in the movie and in real life. Second, the movie shows that a world ruled by just one gender leads to over-gender suffering. You either need two different genders in power or one gender that cares about both sides. This movie, despite being random, is really progressive when you look at it.
