Head to Head – Babe

Welcome to the latest edition of Head to Head, in which our Quickflix critic takes on our readers in a rip-snorting battle to the death! You pick the film, and we pick the fight!

This week we received a hamfisted attack on the beloved Australian film Babe from Kerrie Barter. For her troubles, she received a free pass to the upcoming remake of Fame. If you would also like to win free movie tickets, send your controversial mini-reviews to us here!

Kerrie Barter will argue AGAINST the film, while Quickflix critic Simon Miraudo will argue FOR it. Let us know in the comments section below who you agree with. Spare no vitriol! Choose your side! There can only be one winner!

Kerrie Barter – 1/5

Pork chops! I just couldn’t get excited about Babe and the less said about the feeble sequel the better! Twee to a nauseating extent, this vapid movie wasted an entire 92 minutes of my life. Unless you are eight years old, or else wildly amused by talking animals and pitiful humans, don’t be bullied by the mob into lowering your standards. Not a hateful film, just pointless.

I’ve got to say Kerrie, I’m more confused than anything. I didn’t think Babe-haters actually existed? I mean, what is there to hate? The film’s effortless charm? The subtle, practically silent performance from James Cromwell? That adorable little piggy?! I’m proud to have Babe considered an Australian classic. It’s a modern day Charlotte’s Web and certain to live on in the hearts of children just as long. And by the way, the officially running time of Babe is 89 minutes. Readers, Kerrie has lied to your face and I apologise for that.

Now it’s over to you! Do you agree with Kerrie or Simon? Let us know in the comments section below. And if you would like to be featured in the next Head to Head, and possibly win some free movie tickets, send your mini-reviews to us here at Quickflix!
