Here, Corinne is saying how she has worked past all that and is finally proud of herself, and going out to achieve her dreams despite all that negativity from others. Every girl deserves a great group of friends. From the rural landscapes of sixteenth-century Gascony, the skilful fencer will find herself in Paris along with her feline companion, Miette, and her horse, Alexander, only to discover that girls are not allowed to become Musketeers. However, the animation, while not as stunning as the animation in Nutcracker, is colourful and overall the film is lovely to watch. Definitely one of my favourite face moulds.
It just seemed a bit too silly for me! Arimina likes to dance ballet, read Shakespeare and is very dreamy and girly. The major issue I had with The Barbie Diaries is that it gave the impression that Kevin, Tia, and Courtney were her only friends. Here, she meets Helene, an elderly woman who has worked at the castle for many years, and three young girls, Aramina, Renee and Viveca. You probably already know what the movie's about, but just in case. After watching the movie, girls will be reminded that they can achieve anything they set their minds to. Corinne has a bit of a temper, which is unusual for heroines in Barbie films, and it is always getting her in trouble! Barbie and the Three Musketeers 2009 is set in Paris in the mid-1600s.
Like, when has Barbie ever dated some guy named Kevin? I might have to watch those during my Easter break! Considering that it's Barbie, there's a lot of sword play and macho language from the girls. But she soon discovers that girls are not allowed to be Musketeers, which makes her even more determined to follow her dream. Though it feels more like , this movie looks like an attempt by the creators to jump on the ship. Yeah, I had that issue with The Barbie Diaries as well! There, they train harder than ever before to prove their worth. Their dresses were exceptionally pretty! Surely they could have used a male friend that Barbie already had, like Kurt or somebody! She does what she likes, and she owns it. Can you think of some alternate ending to some other fairy tales? Outside, Monsieur Treville and the rest of the musketeers are attacked.
How does even the mildest level of violence affect a young viewer? Released July 20th, 2009, 'Barbie and the Three Musketeers' stars , , , The movie has a runtime of about 1 hr 21 min, and received a score of out of 100 on Metacritic, which put together reviews from experienced critics. Helene, the elderly lady working at the castle, shows them the long-forgotten musketeer training room. Surely that never would have happened! Cast Cast overview, first billed only:. In the film, I really like the emphasis on working together and the power of friendship. Luckily, Corinne, Arimina, Viven and Renee are here to save the day! I have watched all the Barbie films, excluding Barbie: Video Game Hero 2017 , and I can confidently say that this film is one of my absolute favourites.
Monsieur Phillipe distracts the crowd inside the ballroom with a fireworks display, and uses the opportunity to attack the prince. I am very fond of Barbie in the Nutcracker which is my personal favourite, and liked Rapunzel and Swan Lake. How are girls portrayed in typical fairy tales? There are no female musketeers! Others, like Lea and Kayla, I had heard of, but I think they were only around in the Fashion Fever line. After a rocky start, Corinne eventually befriends Aramina, Renee and Viveca, who all have the same secret dream of becoming musketeers. But she's ultimately never elevated beyond her maid status. If one fails, you all fail. Then again, it is early days, but let's keep our fingers crossed.
I liked how the ballgowns were all different, the detail was wonderful. Trained by an unexpected sword master, the four talented girls will have to work as one to thwart an insidious plan and defend the life of the young Prince Louis; however, are they meant to be the first female Musketeers? As a fashion designer, Viven is a fan of all things pretty and loves sparkly gems, ribbon and beautiful dresses. While Musketeers isn't the best of the movies, and I am not sure what Alexandre Dumas would make of it, it is entertaining and has a sense of fun. For example, Corinne wearing pants and a shirt at the beginning was quite unrealistic. The idea that girls can't be Musketeers motivates Barbie and her friends to try their hardest to fulfill their dreams to be swashbucklers with swords. Especially because Teresa, Nikki and the others were being produced and mentioned in other material at the exact same time the film came out.
Preschoolers will definitely love it. What a genius the casting director is for casting him, and anyone who saw Nutcracker will know he was the voice of the Mouse King, and he was terrific as that character too. This looks at the effects of media violence on our society's most impressionable viewers. Why have women traditionally left the violence to men? However, there are a few things that I think could have been improved. I would have much preferred some of her usual friends. Barbie does all kinds of acrobatic moves, which flaunt her girlishness, but putting a sword in her dainty little hands seems to be a stretch.
. Written by At 17, I know I am a little old for Barbie movies, but there are a vast majority I have enjoyed. I really like how in Barbie films, the main character is always hard-working and even though she sometimes gets help from friends or her significant other, she always uses her own brain and skill set to get out of sticky situations. However, I did like Alexander the horse as he was not as over-the-top-annoying. Most of what is there are the Fashionistas and the Made to Move line. You must prove them wrong.
Elina seems to be such a wonderful character, though. This is a role-reversal from the typical fairy tale. They are trained by the house maid, who is secretly also a Musketeer, and soon the four girls find themselves defending the Prince's life in earnest. Overall, I really enjoyed this film. Poor bloke -he never got as much attention as Ken. After Constance Bonacieux is fired, Madame de Bosse then offers Corinne a job cleaning the castle.
