E-ques-tri-a girls, we're kind of magical!
Boots on hooves, bikinis on top!
So, I watched Equestria Girls last weekend. My verdict? It was... pretty good actually! I enjoyed it for the most part. No, it wasn't perfect, but I think the pony team did a pretty decent job with the (admittedly not very exciting) premise Hasbro chucked at them. Kudos to Meghan McCarthy for steering what should have been a horrible trainwreck into something that is actually watchable, even brilliant at certain points. Yes, I know this is Hasbro's transparent attempt at competing with Mattel's Monster High. Yes, there are lots of the usual high school tropes and stuff. But, you know what? I still think the good outweighed the bad. I know for a fact I laughed out loud at several points in the movie. The songs were catchy and fun, Twilight was still Twilight, even as a human. Likewise, Spike was still Spike, even as a dog. And it was fun seeing all the familiar faces in an alternate universe setting. So yeah. All in all, I had a good time watching it.
Still, I sure hope the next movie is 100% pony!
