    Stars have aligned again. Both Chris and Jeremy released a review simultaneously and it was for a Barbie movie.

    Can’t wait to see this and Oppenheimer this weekend. It feels so weird to be unironically hyped for a Barbie movie, as a guy who never cared about Barbie as a kid, but here we are.

    • Cordless Corde says:

      Same didn’t care for it but all the marketing for it changed my mind can’t wait to see this and especially Oppenheimer

    • Vinn Balor says:

      Because it’s never gonna be a regular barbie kinda film, it was directed by greta gerwig and the film has a massive cast.

    • Wendy Nerd says:

      Discovering new, fun things is the best thing for everyone!

      I used to decapitate my sister’s Barbies when I was a kid

    • Webbe says:

      @Vinn Balor Gerwig as the director was the first thing that got me interested in it, after seeing Little Women and Lady Bird, I was certain she could do something interesting with Barbie as well.

    If anything Lego Movie taught us is that movies based on toys could work as long as if it’s handed to the right filmmaker. And with Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach writing the script with Greta directing it, I’d say it has every opportunity to be great 🙌

    This film has a huge Oscar sniff to it. And winning an Oscar is all about pushing new boundaries. Mind you if your a YouTuber who had a playful dig at a toy company IP you get a legal letter requesting a takedown and NOT an Oscar.

    Comedy movies with Ryan Gosling in them never disappoint.

    • Tomcat says:

      A scene in The Nice Guys where Russell Crowe kicked Gosling in the balls and screams is way funnier than most comedy movies these days

    • Manu says:

      HAHAHAHA

    • Pablo Sonic says:

      Ryan Gosling in life prompting a movie never disappoints. Gosling on tour for whatever film he’s hyping is often ten times funnier than the movie being sold. The Numero Uno example of this is the Ryan Gosling-Harrison Ford roadshow when promoting the sequel to Blade Runner a few years back. Literally, click on any video of their press conferences or talk show appearances together and they are the greatest comedy duo ever. Blade Runner is a damn fine sci-fi drama with serious deep themes and fully realized scope of dystopian vision. However, the real money and juice is getting these two hilarious guys co-starring in a comedy film together. They clearly feed off and bring out the best from each other and the Blade Runner Sequel tour interplay between the two was their screen test and chemistry run-through dress rehearsal. They pass the audition, nailed the improv, got the gig. Make it happen boys. 🤙⚡😀

      What comedy has he ever done that’s funny?

    I hope America Ferrera gets more love in these discussions, her monologue was just breathtaking

  7. J King says:

    From the trailers alone, it’s evident how much care and detail was put into crafting this movie. From the sets, to the costumes, everything looks impeccably done.

  8. Brenda Howard says:

    You can really tell like everyone was having fun making this film. The writers, the set designers, the stylists, the actors, everyone thought the whole way through that this was going to be such a fun movie. Like I bet it wasn’t even a question in a lot of people’s minds. And they were absolutely right.

    • deagleninja says:

      Why wouldn’t it be fun to play pretend while getting paid obscene amounts of money to do it. That’s pretty much the dream job.

    • Blake says:

      Bro ctrl+v his comment from the other video

    • Tomcat says:

      Gerwig is the main reason why this movie worked. The same way Phil Lord and Christopher Miller made The Lego Movie worked. What could’ve been a cynical cash grab IP commercial (*cough The Emoji Movie *cough) turned into something extremely fun, creative and entertaining. Sure the movie ain’t flawless but I felt like it’s about as good as what I hope for a Barbie movie

    • Rando Human? says:

      @deagleninja Not true for everyone, as someone who doesn’t like attention on me, acting seems like a nightmare.

    • Riclmnopp says:

      Things you say when you can’t compliment the film, but need to speak positive about it.

  9. Jonathan Collins says:

    I think the best part is that both a film about one of the most serious subject matters that will forever haunt humanity and one based a toy line will be released at the same time its really hallarious.

    • Pat The Plant says:

      But which one will leave audiences with an idea of how to make a better world?

    • First Last says:

      @pattheplanter – That’s a FIRE Question.. probably Barbie. The worst can’t be undone with Openhiemer.

    • Wendy Nerd says:

      Both of those descriptors apply to each movie.

    • the44118 says:

      The idea was ripped off from the Donald Glover SNL sketch. This writer apparently thought it would be funny as a full-length film lol

    • sergiocon89 says:

      They should’ve gone full Team America style and made an Oppenheimer movie using Barbie dolls instead of people. Would’ve been glorious
