We’re Just Journalism: A “Barbie” Movie Overview

Brooklynn Henson

The “Barbie ” movie is great to dive into, where captivating stories and great cinematography come together to create an enchanting experience for all ages. Growing up, many young children played with Barbies. Natalie Ferry, who is in Journalism, said, “The beginning dialogue really takes me back to my childhood, because they talk in a way kids play with Barbies.” The “Barbie” movie not only brings people back to their childhood, but it also brings tears to viewers eyes. Ferry stated, “I cried during the bus scene with the older woman and Barbie.” The bus scene was a very impactful part of the movie! This is where the old women and Barbie talk at the bus stop. The producers almost cut it from the movie, but we are so glad they kept it in! It was many people’s favorite part! Mr. Garrett Peace, a teacher at Heritage, explained, “I did come close to crying during the bus scene because it made me think of my grandma.”

Some people’s favorite scenes were more on the funny side. Thomas Scherzer said, “I liked the scene where Ken sees the cop on the horse whenever he goes with Barbie to the real world.” Many people loved different senses from this movie, people had some great experiences while going to see the movie. Internationally people dressed up and it was viral online. However, Hailey Drafahl had one of the worst experiences while at the movie theater. She said, “I loved the movie itself. In fact, I love the song (“I’m just Ken.”) Although the movie was great I didn’t love how my now ex-boyfriend dumped the large sized fountain drink on me right after the movie ended.” Overall, the “Barbie” movie is a great movie that everyone should see. If you haven’t seen it, be prepared to be swept away on a rollercoaster of emotions, laughter, and inspiration—because this is more than just a movie, it’s an experience that’s waiting for you.
