this film's existence is so strange to me. it's such an openly vicious film that pretends to be a fun time, everyone keeps talking about it and ignoring the obvious viciousness, the discussion is then quickly dropped and the film disappears as soon as it appeared

      Marketing did cost more than the movie itself and the brand is very recognizable.
      I would be surprised if it didn't made all that money. Quality isn't a factor in these things

    How is it strange? It's the typical israeli agitation propaganda that we've been dealing with since around a few years after WW2. This is literally all we've ever known, and there is very, very few avenues of calling it out for what it is. So we continue to slouch onwards.

    That's because you missed the point, and never attempted to understand both characters. It's a synthetic movie, if you found it vicious you might have a addiction to victimization. Which I've definitely noticed on Cinemaphile, an addiction to negative emotion. Expect this thread to be a sycophantic spiral of anons who dot understand film agreeing with anons who never watched the film.

    Tldr because I know all you kids never go past 6th grade, get over yourselves and maybe you'd unironically enjoy something for once

      Clueless pokes fun at male and female dynamics in a harmless and in many instances sincere way, whereas Barbie mocks male and female relationships existing at all. The climax of the Barbie movie was Barbie telling Ken men and women do not need eachother, which is blatantly false. I can't believe you're even comparing them, major apples to oranges anon. I think it's acceptable for the public to be outraged at a 1.5 billion dollar movie that projects such an insidious view of the relationships between men and women. Films have major cultural impact and can shape the consciousness of the public, they aren't as harmless as you're making them out to be.

        What about in the movie the hangover? Ed helms character hates his b***hy girlfriend. I don't think that's a good message about relationships. I also think he married a non virgin. God, I do not stand with our current society.

          He does hate his b***hy girlfriend: she's abusive, abbrasive, and tyrannical, and that's why he breaks up with her at the end of the movie. I think it actually shows a good message about relationships: If you are unhappy in a relationship, and the relationship is clearly toxic and has soured, you should break up with them.

          It's still apples to oranges: At least Hangover showed a dynamic of the relationship between men and women. Barbie was positing the belief that they shouldn't exist at all.

      I also forgot to add at the end of Clueless, everyone ends up together with who they're supposed to, whereas in Barbie no one ends up together. Barbie was straight up anti-relationship propoganda.

      I enjoyed it as well though I was kind of frustrated because I remember feeling after the mom's speech that the exact same kind of speech could be made about being a man, and the movie didn't really seem to be aware of that or care. But ultimately I felt the movie really was meant for women, so I shouldn't get upset that I didn't feel "seen" as a man by the barbie movie.

        because the whole set up is that "men are bad" and if you don't agree with the assessment then the film comes across as hypocritical feminist nonsense full of double think, with a bunch of shallow hand wave excuses made up by the millionaire feminist hollywood nepo pig pre-emptively trying to defend herself from accusations that the film is shallow feminist propaganda

            in the main plot conflict.

            that aside, it's not even the most ridiculous set up, that belongs to the ideas which are obviously born from the mind of a hyper privileged western millionaire woman who thinks real feminism is about getting to make a big budget film where you sneer at construction workers while you are someone who has never worked an honest day in your life.

    To me, it just seemed like a predictable plastic shallow movie. Just a few lame mainstream laughs, and felt like it ripped off the shot selection, editing and delivery of a lot of 90s and 00s comedies.

    Just a plain and mostly boring film aimed at teenage girls.

    It seems obvious that mattel wanted to rehab barbie's image and this was what they pushed through.

    Gosling easily stole the movie and Ken is legitimately a great achievement of a performance - pure charisma and he captures exactly what the film was going for. Robbie's a good actor but her performance was nothing special. It's kind of weird that Greta got nommed for the screenplay instead of direction (I thought the movie was far better directed than it was written) but she still got nommed. And they even threw one in for the Buzzfeed speech. It did extraordinarily well considering it's not that good a movie. These people seemed to have expected it to sweep the Oscars, which is completely moronic.

    Barbie is just so bleak. For instance, the film makes a big deal about Ken living his own life, not being an accessory, but to what end? This is after we see Ken try, and fail, to get a real world job as a man. He tries and fails to become the leader of Barbieland. At the end of the movie, the woman he loves totally rejects him romantically. Which maybe that's okay if Ken has an outlet for his passions or can adapt to adversity, has something he can become. But Barbieland has no adversity under the rule of the Barbies. He's just stuck. They can talk all they want about shaking up social roles in Barbieland but there is not the chaos of the real world to drive these changes. e.g., Ken will never become paramedic Ken because no one ever gets injured.
    This is really an awful fate. We have an individual that was made by its creator, Mattel, with a definite purpose, to belong to Barbie, and it is robbed of that purpose. Instead it is inexplicably forced to embrace existentialism without the possibility of adversity or real change. It's as if God is making Adam feel shame but never gives him the creativity or means to make clothes.

    Stereotypical Barbie is in a similar boat. She has no job skills. Although it's worth noting that on Venice Beach she immediately has more value than Ken in the real world just because of her looks and body. It's a good thing she went to the OBGYN because she's going to need to use that body to get by in the real world given her complete lack of job skills.

    The message is some sort of existential dualism
    >We don't NEED a romantic partner to flourish
    >We don't NEED loyal friends to flourish
    >We don't NEED to be defined by our jobs
    and so on. Layers are stripped back and cast off as unessential. And in the end, there is nothing left of the person at all. A loveless, lonely wretch who works but doesn't even know why it is important to work.
