I THINK, THE BEST TEAR-JERKER MOVIE - I hate sad movies
3 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Firstly, I thought Barbie was a thriller movie or some psychological mental twist movie.

It is not. I hate sad movie. I shed tears through this movie.

I did not hate it though. Because it was not totally sad from the first like Grave of the Fireflies - it messes with your emotion.

You feel bad for one person and then feel sorry for them. You feel hate for one character and then feel pity for her/him. It is pretty cool to see a tragic movie made this way.

You will not see GORE, CRAZY INSANE TEARS, SCREAMS, and all that stuff. This is totally a cool movie.

I think of it like an indie movie (cool and not spoiling anything) for people who do not like drama / sad movies. I like this movie. I give it an 8 for the casting and the plot at the end.

Great, great, great job. And Barbie, i mean... so 2000 late.
