Barbie Movie, ASTOUNDING!

As we all know back here in 2023 there's only two movies that are making any waves in the cinema complexes, Oppenheimer and Barbie.

Oppenheimer, I went hoping for a movie about the physics, for the scientist characters, and the journey to the Trinity test and ultimately dropping the bombs. It had a bit of that but unsurprisingly, given the movie title, it was focused on Dr Robert Oppenheimer and he's an ok character but I really didn't care (and already knew) about the shenanigans of his post war life. So, a 4.5/10 for me.

Barbie. I had NO expectations, no real idea how on earth a movie could be about a bloody plastic doll and why that would matter. As you've read though it's pink, silly, and throw away for a very focused reason - what it is to be a woman in today's society AND what that may mean for us men.

I laughed, cried, cheered, was captivated and most of all in the zone, totally lost track of time and the outside world, which is ironic coz it hits you as soon as you step out of the movie theatre and see it all be playing out in front of you.

I can't recommend Barbie enough!

MUMS: Go with your girlfriends.

PARTNERS: Go with your significant other. Or with all your mates.

DADS & MUMS: Go with your daughters, take your sons.

MEN: Go and watch alone, as I did, or with ya mates.

I've just made this prediction to a man mate who is, let's say a little reluctant:
Seriously, go and see Barbie, it's got it all, laugh out moments, clever scenes, nailing it moments, and a great ending. It's a superb movie that will win an Oscar (screenplay, maybe director, perhaps even actors)
He's now thinking he and his partner will go. So should you!
