I decided to rewatch all Барби Фильмы and write reviews for them. Obviously, I wanted to start with this one because it was the first Барби movie I saw as a kid. Everything in review below is my opinion only and you're welcome to have a different one. I also wanted to say in advance, English is not my first language so I am sorry for any mistakes. Before I start the review of the movie, I wanted to say a few words about its original cover. I Любовь it. I think it's very simple, but also very classic. Clara look extremaly beautiful on it. I remember when I saw it as a kid, I fall in Любовь with it in seconds. What's your opinion on it? Now, let's start with the review.
Барби in the Nutcracker was the first movie in the franchise and it was probably made on the budget lower than the Далее movies. I've read several opinions according to which it is the weakest Барби movie when it comes to animation. I don't agree with that, but I can see why some people think that way. Watching the movie, Ты just see it's not that detailed. But for me it has its charm and I can't imagine this movie in any other animation. Locations in this production are wonderful and I especially Любовь what they did with colours. I Любовь the colour contrasts in this movie, from dark but warm Clara's home, to cold places covered in snow and finally my favourite, the bright and jolly Sugar слива Princess' island and the place where Clara and Eric picked apples. Clara looked so amazing in these scenes. All the characters in the movie have very unique Дизайн but Clara is my favourite. I think this is the movie that Барби looked the most like Barbie. She looks just like doll, extremaly beautiful. And can I just say her Дизайн as Sugar слива Princess is probably my favourite hairstyle and dress Барби wore in any movie? It looks so pretty! Designs for Parthenia are simple, but it works here, since they are simply beautiful. 9/10
I can't be the only person who thinks that Nutcracker is on totally higher level than other Барби movies? I Любовь the story it is based on, and while it is in no way faithful adaptation, I think the Барби version is even better. I am grateful for the changes they made, because it is my favourite adaptation of that tale/ballet ever. In the entire movie, I won't be able to pick even one scene that would bore me. I can watch this movie thousand times and it is always interesting and enjoyable for me. I Любовь the morals of the story and how they are delivered. Somehow this movie also feels еще mature for me than the others. I also really Любовь how relationships in this movie are written. Clara and Eric are quite possible my favourite Барби couple. Well, I will decide on that after I rewatch all the movies. There were some missing elements in the plot that I feel could make the movie better, but I will talk еще about it in the Далее section. Honestly, I can't imagine the better start for the Барби movie series than this. 9/10
I Любовь Clara. The movie doesn't have a quote, but its lesson is that if you're kind, clever, Храбрая сердцем and true, anything is possible, and I think Clara's example teaches that lesson very good. My favourite Clara's moments are when she is left on the island alone and now everything depends on her. I think she really proves herself as the wonderful heroine. One thing I would like to see though, were her feelings about leaving family behind, when she decided to stay in Parthenia. Eric is another great character. I wish they would Показать him as the unresponsible prince, his development would seem even better than. мышь King is a great villain, as he really give me that dangerous feeling. Pimm is really funny and he together with Clara's brother Tommy are two characters I would like to know еще about. However, characters who totally украл, палантин the Показать are Major Mint and Captain Конфеты and I think I am not the only one with that opinion. I would gladly watch another movie about them. Эй, Mattel, where is Nutcracker's sequel? Well, maybe it's better if they don't make one. 8/10
Well, what can I say, the Музыка is gorgeous. The Nutcracker ballet Музыка is so beautiful. I can listen to it for hours. Письмо this, I actually decided I will listen it for sleep tonight, ha ha. My favourite track is when Eric and the Sugar слива Princess dance before her return to home, and of course the moment when they are separated. I always cry during that part, the Музыка is so emotional. 10/10
Instead of weird dances from Mariposa & The Fairy Princess, the Nutcracker gave us wonderful dance sequences. The ballet scenes shown after мышь King's defeat are beautiful, they are so amazing to watch. I rewatched that scene so many times. Once again, Clara and Eric's dance part was my favourite. I also Любовь the subtle scenes in which faeries try to make Clara dance. 10/10
CONCLUSION: Absolutely Fantastic
It is not my favourite Барби movie, but I think it's only because I can relate to some other Фильмы more. However, I truly believe Барби in the Nutcracker is the franchise's biggest masterpiece. Everything about this movie, whether it's script, Музыка или characters, is absolutely wonderful and I can't imagine anyone who would not like this movie. Even though I have a big sentiment for this movie, I believe my highly positive opinion about it is in no way biased. Before this review, I haven't watched this movie for a very long time and I was afraid it will be a little boring for me now, but once again I was surprised to enjoy it as much as I did when I was a kid. Now I actually want to rewatch it tomorrow, and probably день after tomorrow. Hope Ты enjoyed my review and will check the Далее one.
