Dec 18, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Last Winter the first images of Equestria Girls were revealed. I was not pleased at first, but as the spring came I was more hyped by seeing the trailers. Alicorn Twilight ends up in a human World after chasing the unicorn villain Sunset Shimmer. Twilight and her friends are humans in this version. Now it's up to Twilight to win her crown back. There are many so many highlights. You don't have to be a hardcore Brony like me to watch this movie. Here is something for everyone like light pop songs, focus on a high school bully that turns into a succubus, a soccer match and lots of shout outs. Derpy shows up at the end. It's no 12 times Oscar nom winner, but a lighthearted fantasy. If only Lyra had a bigger role.… Expand
Sep 6, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I have to say, I expected this movie to be complete and utter bilge, but it wasn't. Even though all the marketing and trailers (bar one) portrayed it as a mindless high school film, it was like an extended episode of the show (except, obviously with humans). I especially like "It's time for us to come together" but all the songs were very good as well, so kudos to Daniel Ingram. And Megan McCarthy's writing was very good as well.… Expand
Sep 23, 2013I kept hearing lots of good inputs but also bad inputs on this movie. I figured, I'm already a brony, might as well try this out. I must say, it was better than I originally thought, but it's still not perfect. While the movie overall was good, it lacked length a bit more story development. But let's face it, it's a My Little Pony movie. It was intended for kids.... mostly... So I'll go ahead and give this movie a 9/10. It was simple, but overall fairly entertaining.… Expand
Aug 4, 2013Yeah...
This could have been a lot better. I would rather they not humanize the show but instead elaborate on the pony side of it. And since they did humanize it, they could have used a better villain than Sunset Shimmer. I'm still waiting on Hasbro to bring back King Sombra after his tiny appearance in Season 3.
Despite that, it was great fun. It still retains the pony spirit. The awesome remixed intro theme was awesome. If only Season four would have that as an intro...… Expand
Oct 26, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Honestly I don't know what to think of this movie, in a sense I did find it entertaining in a way but...why? I love the show as it is, with it's educational lessons, good animation, great writing, flaws, and all. I appreciate what the show has given to me and to other people (you know who I'm talking about). Now I'm not really the smartest person in the world...Canada, but I really wonder why the writers went down this road and who asked for them to take it? In a sense I really felt they've missed a lot of good opportunities with this idea, I felt they could of pushed the whole Twilight coming to our world to find some crown plot thing even better instead of the high school crap that EVERY kids show would taking place in, it's really unnecessary for for kids too... in fact what did the kids learn from this? It doesn't teach kids about high school, it focused on Twilight succeeding in her mission, & that excuse of a climax is really whimsically unfitting and cliched and just made me face-palmed myself in grief. To make things worst for this movie is that Lauren Faust (the shows creator) hated watching it, why? Because it's everything the show is not and she felt offended by this decision. But there are things in the movie that can help you enjoy the movie better then it is. Like that one song "Helping Twilight Win The Crown"...oops. So yeah the movie to me is a hit and miss. Lost opportunities but an enjoyable movie for both fans and children. To me this is rated 3.5 Elements of Harmony/6. But for this site I'll rate it a 5.. maybe a 6. XD… Expand
Sep 6, 2013When the my little pony equestrian girls trailers came along, I expected it to fail because of its change from ponies to humans, but I actually enjoyed the movie. Let me explain:It started after the last episode of my little pony friendship is magic, when Twilight became the princess of Cantalot. She went to stay in Cantalot tower. When she was sleeping in bed that night, somebody crept into her room and stole her crown, and accidentally tripped over Spike and woke Twilight up. Then Twilight chased after the pony thief until he or she jumped into a magical portal to get away. Twilight didn't enter the portal, to make sure it was safe.So she woke up the empress and everybody else, told them what had happened and asked them where the portal lead to. The empress said it lead to an alternate reality. So Twilight jumped in to search of the crown and the pony thief. Spike came along. The rest of the ponies had to stay, so not to disturb the balance of the dimension. So, when they got to the other side, Twilight was a human and Spike was a dog. Basically, this was an alternate reality where everybody looked and acted like humans. All the characters from the My Little Pony series were there too, in human form. So Twilight decided to go to the nearest school for some unknown reason which doesn't make any sense. It seems forced, very forced. There she meet her long time friends. She also finds pony she saw, the one who stole her crown. Twilight finds out that she is using the crown to win the prom. So Twilight doesn't tell anybody that she's a pony, in case they freak out. What happens for the rest of the movie is Twilight making a good representation of herself around the school, so she can be the prom queen and get her crown back.
In truth, it feels like a shallow story that just tries to pat out the movie. I felt a little awkward when the story revealed all it had to offer. Why wouldn't Twilight just get Spike to threaten the pony thief into giving the crown back? It seems a lot shorter and easier way to approach it. Spike's a dog, he can bite off necks and things like that. And then just run back through the portal before before the police gets there. They don't know what she's done in the other dimension. It's not like you need a good reputation when you're not going to live there anyway. It feels lazy.
About the voice acting: 80% of it is done ok, though some of the side characters' performances are done quite poorly.
So no to get to the point of how the movie doesn't fail with the changing pony to human aspect. You see, the case is that Twilight doesn't take on a random life of another human. She's her own human. She has no parents, no-one to look after her, on her own. No one is forcing her to go to school, she does what she does, there is zero percent child racism added in here, and what happens is actually quite interesting. She doesn't care about this dimension and she never stays. She's only here for the crown. The fact that she makes friends is only for the reputation that she wants. So it succeeds with its ideas.
So what do I think of the movie over all? It's good! Besides the weak story and some bad voice acting, it's enjoyable. That's not coming from a My Little Pony fan. If you are a fan, it might be a 7/10. So watch it, you won't regret it!… Expand
Nov 7, 2013I hate this movie. I love "My Little Pony:Friendship Is Magic" but this...this is just Hasbro trying to cash in on "Monster High" and "Barbie". I mean, what did Jayson Thiessen think would happen? that "Equestria Girls" would be a big hit, and win an Academy Award? I have just seen "Gravity" and "Captain Philips", what I consider two of the best movies this year, and I can definitely say that those two have more of a chance of winning awards than this pile of cow … Expand
