I prefer the old Filme mostly because they have a better plot , a better story ,better songs , better characters and also it has less fuchsia and doesn't have eye hurting colors. And about the Animation I think the Animation in the new Filme is clearer and better at some point but I prefer the facemolds in the old movies.
Old Barbie Filme are way better. From the animation, Musik (songs and background musics), characters, and many more! Though the main theme songs of old BMs have deeper lyrics then in the new BMs, example "Shine", "Hope Has Wings", "I'm on My Way", etc. The old BMs heroines are braver and inspiring. Each of them have special side and personality like manu962 said. It seems like Mattel is spoiling little girls with making those magenta oder fuschia sparkles, cheap magic things (magic microphone and hairbrush) and also silly sparkling fashions in the new BMs scenes like in FF, FS, and PaP. I have to say I'm very disappointed with PaP because of those cheap magic things. First, BMs usually tell about how the magic things can be found. While in PaP, the magic things have been found, I think Steve Granat and Cydne Clark didn't have to add magic mic and hairbrush, just let the Diamond Gardenia be the only magic thing in PaP. Second, I think a popstar should be a normal human being and never touch with magic. Because of the magic microphone and nonsense fast-changing stage, Keira looks Mehr like magician and not like a singer, so her konzert doesn't look like a Musik konzert and it's kind of magic Zeigen where Keira is the magician. I like Keira's hair, electric guitar, dress, style, and also her Singen voice (Tiffany Giardina). But for the role as a fictional popstar, I like Hannah Montana Mehr since she's Mehr realistic.
*Sorry Mattel, your NONSENSE Keira couldn't beat Disney's REALISTIC Hannah*
That's the reason why I like BD as my Favorit MUSICAL modern BM since it's Mehr realistic and has better storyline, though Barbie did the konzert with band. While Keira only sang with Musik from the sound system which make her sound like doing lip-sync
Something between. The Nutcracker, Rapunzel, schwan Lake and A Weihnachten Carol are wonderful, but not new - so a little bit boring, although the stories are good and the characters lovely. Between Fairytopia and the Diamond schloss the stories are very good, also the characters. After this the stories, characters and graphic are getting worse. Glittering, Sparkling seems to be the most important think of the new movies.
The old Barbie movies! Because they are Mehr interesting. But modern Barbie Filme are too predictable. I Liebe ballet which I can't see in the new movies, and there is no classic Musik also. I Liebe intelligent Anneliese, Merida - Legende der Highlands Odette, freedom-loving Rapunzel, hopeful Annika...and others. But the new Barbies don't have these qualities. So, that's why I Liebe old Barbie Filme and don't like the new ones.
I prefer the older films, for a number of reasons. For one thing, I feel like the Animation was better. Okay, it was stiff in some of the earlier Filme - I'd say the Filme from MoP to IP had the best Animation insgesamt - but the characters looked better and the lighting and backdrops actually looked somewhat Mehr realistic. The Filme nowadays tend to be a lot brighter and shinier, although the backgrounds and buildings have improved lately. Secondly, and this is perhaps Mehr important, I feel like the stories were better in the older movies. At least, I feel like Mattel put Mehr effort into the stories back then than they do now. That goes double for the characters. This doesn't mean to say that the new Filme are all bad, oder that they're all guilty of this (PCS, for instance, was actually done quite well in terms of story and such) but they just don't tend be as good overall.
I guess the old Barbie Filme are better than the new Barbie movie. Perhaps, the old Barbie Filme in terms of Animation is less than the new Barbie movie, but the story in the old Barbie movie Mehr realistic, not too wordy, and Mehr adventurous, and a lot of good character the main character exemplary While the new Barbie movie in my opinion less interesting story, and a bit boring to watch. It is not clear what is to be conveyed from the story. As the Princess and Popstar, I was disappointed with the movie. Because the story is not clear, it is not well targeted. Although the new Barbie movie has a good Animation quality than the old one, I still prefer the old Barbie movies
Definitely the old ones- the new ones are ridiculous caricatures, I can't take them seriously. They seem to be regurgitating the same storylines too- Princess and the Pauper, Princess and the Popstar, and now 'Rock'n Royals'. I find it a huge shame they've moved away from the classical fairytale stories, they've really ruined the film franchise in my opinion
The old ones. There the ones I grew up with, and frankly, I like them alot more. The only good modern Barbie movie I can think of is a fashion fairytale, but its still not as compelling as the diamond castle, nutcracker, oder rapunzel. The old ones had Mehr charm, and kühler stories and Mehr inspiring main characters. There were even some Du didn't expect to be good, but were, like mermaidia, mermaid tale and magic of the pegasus. New Barbie writers, take lessons from the old ones.
I definitely prefer the old Barbie Movies. They used to have a better soundtrack, with beautiful songs that would cheer Du up. Also their faces were very much Mehr Barbie like, as the new ones are really... fake and doll like? I don't know i feel like the old ones are a bit better. If Du include plot, old ones are (again) so much Mehr succesful, and were always so luring and attracted Du to expect the new Barbie movie and the next. But now the new ones have gotten very cliche, boring and the new faces don't remind us of Barbie's. As a 1999 child, I used to watch them ALL the time, and I'm so used to those faces, but now the new ones don't give me that amazing feeling of a Barbie Movie. In my opinion, the best old Barbie Filme were Barbie as the princess and the pauper, schwan Lake, Pegasus, Diamond Castle, Rapunzel and the 12 Dancing Princess. Wish they could all be like these ones...
The old ones! Back then, the Animation was much better, the plots were interesting and exciting, and the characters were actually not just stereotypes of stereotypes! Since 2010, the Filme have become complete and utter glitzy girly crap.
The old ones. And the reason.....I don't know,I guess I just happen to like classic fairy tales(or something set in that age) very much,while also like to saw Barbie dress up in old-fashion gown/dresses,and "magical transformations".
The Barbie movie with a really good plot, characters and animation. And the Barbie Filme that are the mini-movies.
The mini Filme are like the novellas of series and novels.
But anyway, the new Barbie Filme like "The Secret Door", "Fashion Fairytale" and "Princess Charm School" are those Barbie Filme that are in the level of classic Barbie movies.
And then, there's the "Princess Power" and the others-- who lack the plot and excitement of watching Barbie.
Honestly, I'm kind of disappointed to see Barbie--and the animation-- get worse. I'm even disappointed that getting a Liebe interest is not their focus anymore! I mean, who's Barbie when Du don't have Ken, right?
So anyway, I just liked those good Barbie Filme rather than the new ones from "Princess Power" up to the "Puppy Chase"
old ones!!!!! I grew up watching them and their messages are better and the Animation looks Mehr like Barbie (it is a bit bad tho) plus the new ones are bad bad bad bad BAD!!!!!!!!!!! Barbie bonds with her sisters oder Barbie fights villains (who do seriously messed up things) and SAVES THE FRIGGIN WORLD!!! I say the Sekunde option and mattel is like : what Sekunde option, I don't know what Du mean Von diamond castle...... they literally hide all evidence of them on the website >:(
I really Liebe the in between ones. My most Favorit is Barbie in a Mermaid Tale. I Liebe the story of it. I like the old ones too. Also, Barbie Princess and the Pop-star is okay-ish to me. I don't like Filme that have such a small setting (like Barbie and the 12 Dancing Princesses). It feels weird oder I don't know how to say it, but just weird, when the Filme doesn't take place in a big setting oder Mehr than one place. I don't know. Does anyone understand that? I Liebe Barbie in Princess Charm School too. I hate it when they have Barbie play as herself. I like when she is being the actress. Another one of my Favoriten is Barbie as the Island Princess. The older ones have better story lines, better, I don't know, but better feels to them I think. Sorry if I upset anyone Von saying this, but it is just how I feel about it. I have some in the Liste that are older that I still don't like, but I absolutely do not like any of the new ones like Princess Power, Spy Squad, Video Game Hero (especially), delphin Magic, oder Rock n' Royals. I did not include star, sterne Light Adventure in that because I like that movie. No, I did not like the ending that much, but I feel like the movie had good intentions. It could have been better if it seemed a little longer and if it had a different ending that went along Mehr when the other older movies.
Okay, I came back after watching previews of the newer Barbie movies, and this is why I hate them: If Du go and look at Princess Charm School oder Mermiad Tale Du see that the person Barbie plays as looks the same. Go look at the newer Filme like Princess Power oder Rock n' Royals, they look completely different. I am so used to the way Barbie looked in the older Filme that seeing her in the new Filme is weird. star, sterne Light Adventure is not as bad to me because Barbie doesn't look too different from the older movies. I really Liebe Barbie movies, but the changes are literally killing me.
Here are all of the Filme I have seen: 12 Dancing Princesses delphin Magic Princess and the Pop-star Princess Charm School Mariposa (first one) A pony Tale Rock n' Royals Spy Squad Video Game Hero Princess Power star, sterne Light Adventure A Mermaid Tale A Mermaid Tale 2 The Pearl Princess A Fairy Secret Princess and the Pauper The Secret Door Diamond Castle The rosa Shoes Barbie as Rapunzel The Three Musketeers Fairytopia Thumbelina
