Super Fight #2 - Re-Match: Bratz vs Barbie

So, it seems Bratz have tried to kill the competition with a dabble into the world of cinema.

They seem to have forgotten one tiny detail.


Some highlights include:

Barbie as Rapunzel, Barbie in the Nutcracker, Barbie: Swan Lake, Barbie and the 12 Dancing Princesses, Barbie as the Island Princess (screening tomorrow on channel 7, don't miss it), The Barbie Diaries and Barbie as the Princess and the Pauper.

Not to mention her incredible spin-offs from Barbie: Fairytopia, which include Barbie Fairytopia: The Magic of the Rainbow, Barbie Fairytopia: Mermaidia and Barbie Fairytopia: Return to Mermaidia.

Now I hear what you're saying, "But Tegan, the Bratz movie has real people. Surely that's better than Barbie's crappy animation."

To which I say, No it's not. Animation is a perfectly valid form of artistic expression, and having animations allows Barbie to maintain her flawless looks. People get old and wrinkled and sag. Animations don't. Plus the chicks in the Bratz movie are weird looking. Especially the one that actually really looks like a Bratz doll. Creepy.

I also hear you say "But Tegan, those Barbie movies were created for tv, purely as vehicles of advertising for specific Barbie dolls."

To which I say, that doesn't mean they aren't fantastic stories. So shut up. Who do you think you are, anyway? Have you ever made a movie? NO. So leave Barbie alone. And don't go see the Bratz movie.

So Barbie wins again. Honestly Bratz, just give up now before you embarrass yourself.

No noses. Not one nose in sight. Noseless. The lot of them
