Congratulations, Lorinna, for winning Barbie Movies January Fan of the Month! You've contributed a lot to this spot!
Here is the interview with Lorinna.
1. How do you feel on winning January Fan of the Month?
It's amazing! Thank you everyone who voted for me, and I'm going to kill a person who picked Delancy in final pick.
2. How did you find fanpop and Barbie Movies fan club?
A friend of mine, Margota aka pink_shine told me she found a nice site with thousands of pictures and videos, and she told me I'd like to be there. Thankies Margota :)
3. What do you like and dislike about fanpop and Barbie Movies fan club?
Fanpop is surely good place. There's a lot of amazing information. As for BMs spot, it's good, too, but I hate it when people upload duplicate and even triplicate stuff, lol. And one more also, I hate to see it when someone creates second profile and acts like it's not hers.
4. Who is your favorite and your least favorite ....
- Barbie main character and why?
The favourite one is Genevieve. She's amazing, graceful, kind, nice and funny. And she's a main character of my favourite movie, lol.
My least favourite Barbie is all Barbies, played by Diana Kaarina. Because...they're not real Barbies, as the one and only Barbie is Kelly Sheridan.
- of all characters in Barbie movies?
My favourite Barbie character is Aramina of 3M, because she acts like me- or I act like her? lol We're similar, both like green and can do ballet.
And my least favourite is Gothel, because she has nothing good inside of her heart.
5. How did you first know Barbie movie? What is the first Barbie movie you watched?
Back in 2002...I was little girl with braids, and Mom brought me a cassette with Rapunzel on it. I watched it and was totally amazed ("OMK, OMK, I adore her!!!). The second one was MoP- but four years later.
6. What/who is your favorite....
- Barbie movie?
12DP. It's amazing, 'cause it has twelve perfectly made princesses, great villain, magical story and OMK IT HAS DEREK!!
- Barbie outfit?
Annika's final transformation dress. I was amazed when I saw how she transforms.
- Barbie hairstyle?
Clara's Sugarplum princess one. She looks so graceful!
- Barbie song?
"Shine". No exceptions. The second one is "Unbelievable" from 3M.
- Barbie male protagonist?
Derek <3<3<3 (do I act like a fangirl? lol)
- Barbie sidekicks?
Bibble and Dandelion from Fairytopia series. They're surely great sidekicks.
- Barbie villain?
Laverna. How many times Elina won, and she used to strike back! (though, Mattel won't show, where's she now)
- Voice actor for Ken?
Mark Hildreth. He's totally amazing (maybe, because it was the first Ken's voice I heard?)
7. What is the worst Barbie movie and why?
Fairy Secret. It was too bright; Barbie looked weird; it had no good moments; blerk, it was Mattel' fail.
8. Which Barbie do you think....
Genevieve. She's pale beauty, and she's sooo gracious!
Anneliese, according by quantity of books she'd read.
Annika. I'd never go somewhere only to save my sudden sister.
Suddenly, Blair. Don't know why, really.
- make the hardest decision?
Merliah. If I were her, I'd stay in Oceana, with Mom. I hope she'll do it in MT2.
- most similar to you?
Elina. Nobody payed any attention on me, but then...
9. Do you prefer....
- Barbie as fairies or mermaid?
Mermaid. But not Merliah and Oceana of MT- don't know about MT2.
- Barbie as magical creature or human?
Human- but not Blair/Barbie/Merliah, no.
- Classical story or modern life story?
Classical ones. I can't stand modern stories and those who loves them.
- Cliff Ruby/Elana Lesser's stories or Elise Allen's stories?
Hmm..probably, Cliff and Elana ones. Elise's good, too, though.
10. Do you look at each Barbie movie critically? Or do you just love ANY Barbie movie just because it's a Barbie movie?
Probably, I love all the Barbie movies, and it makes no difference- if it's Diana or Kelly, and if Barbie looks like a human or like an alien.
11. Do you think Barbie should only have blue eyes or she can have different eye color?
She'd look good with green eyes, like Elina, but not with brown, no. Blondes with brown eyes are weird, believe me.
12. What color do you want Barbie to wear?
Pink. But not fuchsia, this weird color of FF Barbie's dress. Though she looks good in violet.
13. Which movie has the best ending scene?
12DP. No excess kisses, just holding hands and final dance, OMK! OMK how romantic was it!
14. List your favorite Barbie main character (from Nutcracker to Perfect Christmas)
If it needs to list them, then, all Barbie heroines from N to 3M are first, and all from MT to PC are last. Lol, I'm quite simple.
15. If you can improve Barbie movie, which part (for example: story line, Barbie face, scenery, picture) will you change?
Uhm, what a good question!
Then, I'd take MT1 as example. I'd make colors a little bit paler; make characters look different (yes Mattel, different, I tell you!); cut all the modern part out...and then, there'd be The Litle Mermaid starring Barbie. Lol.
16. Do you want Barbie with short hair? Please explain your reason.
Uhm, no. An example of Barbie with short hair for me is Elina, though she had hairbun. But still; Barbie looks good only with her hair long.
17. What story/fairytale do you want Barbie to make?
I'd love to see Barbie as Cinderella. I think, it would be awesome, awesome, awesome!
18. What do you think of the image quality of Barbie movies? Increasing or decreasing?
Hmm...though very first movies weren't bright, and last movies are totally bright; I think, it's decreasing. Barbie looks like an alien, thanks to Zaff for definition.
19. Your hopes for the upcoming Barbie movies? Not just Mermaid Tale 2 and Princess and the Popstar but farther in the future.
I hope, MT2 won't be as bad as MT1; I hope, PaP won't be like P&P; and I hope, Kelly Maria Sheridan, our favourite voice actress, will voice Barbie, like in good old times!
