Disney’s Haunted Mansion, directed by Justin Simien and written by Katie Dippold, brings the beloved theme park attraction to life once again on the big screen. While the concept of adapting a ride into a movie may raise eyebrows, this latest attempt proves to be a delightful surprise, offering a ghoulishly enjoyable experience for audiences of all ages.

Barbie, the latest cinematic venture directed by Greta Gerwig, is a delightful slapstick comedy that offers a refreshing and original story, captivating both Barbie enthusiasts and those less familiar with her iconic world. As a collector of the most iconic fashion doll on the planet, with 300 vintage dolls in my collection, I have to admit that I had a blast at the movie screening. With its relatable themes, witty dialogue, original story, relatability, impeccable design of the fashion doll’s world and nostalgic appeal, Barbie delivers a clever and satirical take on the concept of perfection and the challenges faced by both Barbie and Ken in their journey beyond the idyllic Barbieland. This film is definitely a must-see for audiences of all ages transcending the boundaries of a typical children’s movie. Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling shine in their respective roles, delivering performances that are both funny and heartfelt. This comedy is a blast from start to finish, reminding us of the power of imagination, the importance of self-discovery, and the value of embracing our flaws.
