I'm trying to remember the last time we saw as much hype for a movie as we have for Barbie
For some reason, I keep thinking about the hype for the 1974 version of The Great Gatsby
, maybe because of its subsequent poor showing at the box office.
It will be interesting to see the backlash against Barbie
, from all directions:
- Barbie is a sexist movie because it [objectifies women] [denigrates men].
- Barbie is a racist movie because it creates a fantasy world of white privilege.
- It's just a doll, for heaven's sake!
Holy Moley. Backlash? Get a life.
Barbie is a movie for little girls. Just like the latest Mario Brothers or Puss-N-Boots flick, parents are going to be making reservations ahead of time to take their little princesses to see this movie. That's it. Don't read anymore into it.
Where is all this you wrote coming from?
If you're a girl over the age of 12, or a boy of any age, you don't care.
Get outside, breath some fresh air, go make a friend. All kidding aside.
Boy this bulletin board can sure attract some lonely people.
Women spend more time wondering what men are thinking about than men spend actually thinking.
