    All I want in the new Barbie movie is one scene in this early CGI style. Just one.

    If you do more Barbie movies, I highly suggest Fashion Fairytale!! It's another one that's focused on Barbie herself rather than a character she plays

    My gf, self-proclaimed Barbie ultra fan said to me when I showed her the video, that and I quote ,, This movie is not discussed in the fandom, we are denying its existence since 2006'' and I think this is a good point.

    Honestly, Todd kinda got what was coming since he literally cancelled being Barbie's date to the dance to get back with his ex. So congrats, Kevin. 😅... I've become too emotionally invested in this children's film.

    • Funaroma
      Funaroma Před 2 měsíci +136

      He was definitely using Barbie as a backup. Immediately after they break up (lol again) he goes straight to Barbie so he won’t go to the dance alone

    Can we appreciate how Alex’s animation is BETTER then a Mattel Barbie full length film

    • Qoi Pond
      Qoi Pond Před 2 měsíci +261

      To be fair to the animators (not the studios tho) the riggers+other artists on these movies were probably paid peanuts and put on insane crunch for a project they may not have been super passionate about. Alex is animating stuff he cares about and probably does work on crunch due to algorithm but has a lot more freedom in his schedule+balancing. Almost like happy animators in good environments make better art. (that sarcasm isn't at you, it's at the industry)

    The fact that Alex is mostly right about the hair animation bit, the hair was the reason they hired that animation studio, bc In most of the other Barbie movies(esp at the time) the hair did not move at all.
    context, Mattel was trying to compete w/ bratz and its series, which was made by a different animation company. So Mattel hired them for the Barbie diaries and made it similar to bratz. So that's why the hair is animated like that.

    • Tornado Dee
      Tornado Dee Před 2 měsíci +43

      oooh makes sense, was wondering why the hair suddently looked like Bratz hair instead of pieces of pasta. OH!! And thats probably why they briefly departured from their "fairytale" stories and decided to make a more "teenage high school drama" movie instead!!

    • JustAGiraffe
      JustAGiraffe Před měsícem +8

      Yup, and then they created the myscene dolls which did a little better I think.

  • Ceci Rapalini
    Ceci Rapalini Před 2 měsíci +454

    I can't believe Alex didn't metion the scene where Barbie goes again to the store and the woman who gifted her the diaty had dissapeared like she didn't even exist. And then they never explain what happened with her... as a kid I was always so mad at that.

    The Barbie diaries was my favorite thing to watch as a kid. I used to run home after school everyday to rewatch it. I swear it looked better on my TV in the early 2000s. I wonder where that DVD ended up. 💁🏾‍♀️ I thought it was the Barbie version of A Cinderella Story with Hillary Duff and Mean Girls. It was the first time I really saw Barbie as the underdog.

    • Joshua Nishanth Christian
      Joshua Nishanth Christian Před 2 měsíci +15

      The average DVDs back then didn't have the greatest resolution, and neither did most of the TVs themselves. Honestly the fuzziness may have genuinely made it look better by hiding some of the harsher/rougher details and errors.

    • vocal0idsupermacy_gumimiku

    Barbie movies were my entire childhood, but for YEARS I thought this one movie was just a fever dream. I watched it once at a friend's place, and the only thing I remembered vividly from it was the freaky "CAN I COUNT ON YOU?" scene.

    I feel that this is the reason why so many people like Barbie movies, its the pure comedy of them that you just don't get in regular teen movies. The fact that it also suddenly becomes psychological horror all of a sudden 😂😂.
    Also, I recommended doing Barbie and the Secret Door (not sure if I'm correct) and Barbie Charm School.

    Barbie Swan Lake is next pliss. The model they used for Raquel in this movie is the same as the evil ballerina in Swan Lake. Also, I'm pretty sure one of Barbie's teachers in this movie is the evil ballerina's dad model as well.

    As a kid, I was absolutely enthralled by the hair animation in this movie. Especially in comparison to the other Barbie movies, in which the hair was all one massive stiff blob. I wouldn't listen to anyone who told me the animation was bad. Looking back on in though.... holy shit.

    As an old person, I definitely recommend Barbie and the Rockers: Rockin' Back to Earth (1986). I had this old VHS of it I watched a bunch as a kid and it is a VERY different vibe to all of these cg movies. Also, I feel like you'd enjoy the retro animation. Also also, it appears to be on CZcams in it's entirety.

    Another Barbie move that really departs from the Barbie formula is the MyScene film Jammin in Jamaica. It technically stars Barbie but the frankly large cast of side characters have a prominent role in the film. It’s so chaotic, drama fueled, has some incredible original songs. Plus it’s more “mature” since it comes from the MyScene franchise. It’s also in 2D so it’s a different style

    I used to LOVE this movie when I was a kid. Actually, I used to love every single Barbie movie out there. It's just my whole childhood.

    Honestly, Barbie: A Fairy Secret is the best one, of all of them.
    Ken actually has a personality and is responsible for a humor that, for me, still holds up, I actually laugh out loud at some of the jokes. The movie is not just about Barbie, it has an interesting plot and Raquelle really experiences some growth and has the opportunity to show her personality, also her frenemies relationship with Barbie is really cute and funny, good for teaching kids. I just love it.
    [And the fact that it’s a direct sequence from the iconic A Fashion Fairytale and you can it in the details 🤌🏻]

    Just a quick reminder or note.
    Barbie herself is an actress and ‘the twelve dancing princesses’, ‘princess and the pauper’ or any other movies she isn’t named ‘Barbie’ are movies she plays in. Then there are Barbie movies like ‘A fashion Fairytale’ or ‘A perfect Christmas’ are about her private life as Barbie. ‘The Barbie diaries’ counts to this as well.

    I love Alex’s reaction to the barbie movies because he doesn’t have the rose-colored glasses of nostalgia like the rest of us. It makes me realize just how ridiculous the movies really are lol

      ​@Yes, I like bananas. So?Not ridiculous? The romance subplot is nothing but cringe. She goes for the guy that goes crawling back to the gall that dumped him, the moment she looks at him TWICE and then there is Kevin. In any other movie that guy would be the creep of the show. Teen me hated him the moment I realized what his deal was.

    Excellent video, as always!! You need to do either Barbie Nutcracker or Barbie of Swan Lake :) Even though I’m 32, I always watch them at Christmas time, they’re so nostalgic for me!

    Alex Meyers, your videos are hilarious and your animation is amazing. I've only been watching your channel for a few months and I wish I had started watching earlier. I truly love your work.
    It's been a long long time since I've seen any Barbie movies. There were some of their movies I liked as a kid, but the one I loved the most was The Mermaid Tale 1 & 2. You should definitely watch them next.

    first of all, loved the review of this one! it definitely hit the notes of the early 2000s drama teen movies, but without all the other quirks like in mean girls. magic of pegasus is still on my list (BEST enemies to lovers with an interesting villain!)

  • TheCultureshock101

    Barbie as Rapunzel, in Swan Lake, in The Nutcracker, and The Magic of Pegasus were the only ones I watched as a kid and I loved them all (so was Princess and the Pauper, but that one's been covered already). If you could eventually talk about any of those I would absolutely love it! I haven't seen them in years...

  • Easternflower

    I like how Alex said ‘your eyeshadow doesn’t even match your skin’ like eyeshadow is made to blend perfectly into your tone and look like you’re not wearing any at all 😂

      like how in mean girls the main girl wears autumn shades but starts wearing a very ugly shade of pink that doesnt suit her skin as she becomes a mean girl

    • Easternflower
      Easternflower Před 2 měsíci +13

      Ooh ok that does make sense lol I thought he meant it actually doesn’t match her skin, like literally. I was like ‘wouldn’t it be invisible then?’ 😂

    Remembering that I own 2 copies of each Barbie movie because I watched them so much growing up that the DVD died and had to get another one is so 😭and now having Alex watch them as an adult who did not grow up on them is top-tier content for me. I am making my roommate watch Alex's video since I can't get her to watch the actual movies lol.

    I am soo happy Alex actually took the time out to watch this movie 🤣🤣. It's a gas. I loved it when I was little but I always wondered why the animation had to be like that. The songs were fire tho. I vote Barbie Magic of Pegasus next!

    4:00 I always find it so weird how all the popular girls (or kids in general) are always so mean in movies. In my school the mean kids were usually the ones that wound up getting excluded from everything and the popular ones were the ones that were the most sociable, charming, charismatic and nice.

    Hilarious as always. My vote for next Barbie movie would probably be Swan Lake or Nutcracker! I was a ballet kid, so those two were definitely the ones I watched the most. Not sure if it's impressive or sad that my best friend and I knew every single step to every single dance in both movies...

    I feel like this doesn't get said enough, i ABSOLUTELY LOVE the way Alex animates. It's so bouncy and kinda like a mix of how animes are animated and cartoons. I love the contrast between extremely dynamic poses and the simple little blob that is his character. I also love the exaggerated expressions. TLDR : i love the way alex animates

    In my high school, the popular girls were pretty friendly, for the most part. And they were honor students. I was that kid that was friends with everyone and helped everyone with their homework. It was honestly the popular boys that were the problem children.

    17:31 Barbie movies with actual decent messages - go check out ‘Barbie: A Fairy Secret’ which actually deals with looking beyond the surface at a person & their actions & how to communicate better.
    Also good is ‘Barbie: Mariposa & the Fairy Princess’ which actually demonstrates the good guy characters reflecting on past actions, their consequences & what they should’ve done differently.

    The huge switch in animation style is because this was done by a different studio. Most of the other movies were done by Mainframe Studios, the studio that animated Reboot, Beast Wars, and Shadow Raiders, among other things. This movie was made by Curious Pictures, a now closed animation studio that did a bunch of things I've never heard of and also Codename: Kids Next Door.

      @Brae N Eric hux💞 Honestly, there are many men (including me) who watch kid shows. I think people assume you lose interest in things, because of your age. But Disney Adult definitely prove cartoons definitely still resonate with adults. And don’t get me started on adult doll/toy collectors (Kidults as industry likes to call us; we hate it) made up $9 Billion during the past couple years for these toy companies.

    “How did this happen?” There was a doll for each movie, it was during Blockbuster era so meaning the movies were accessible, and they were different stories than the usual princess ones

    Barbie movies/shows are to be seen and experienced. That's all I'm going to say.
