Equestria Girls being its own thing makes me depressed and cringe

Recommended Posts

Look I get people want to have this spin off series to stand on it's own but that always makes me really depressed and mostly cringe. This whole issue started at Friendship Games were Princess Twilight nevered appeared until the very end. Now Friendship Games did alright for having Equestria Girls be it's own thing I can get past that. However after that it didn't work for me because in Legend Of Everfree my main 2 problems with the film are Princess Twilight not returning and Flash Sentry. I know we need Sunset Shimmer to get some development but I still didn't like how it's execute. I'm my opinion I didn't like the relationship between Human Twilight and Sunset Shimmer mostly because of the development from the last movie. If Principal Cinch nevered made Twilight do any of the disasters in the Friendship Games none of that would of happened.

 

Before you guys tell me that Sunset doesn't need to apologize to Twilight because they were in the wrong, I do get what there doing but the issue with that, is because Friendship Games is to clichéd. Friendship Games may be the first movie I watched but I've seen this stuff before and it's not that interesting to me. I really hate how there's Arguments in these types of movies because their always in the wrong. But unlike Rainbow Rocks (Because of the episode Fame and Misfortune), Friendship Games just feels very forced.

 

In Legend Of Everfree, Sunset Shimmer's character really didn't affect on me since she's protecting Twilight because of the magic around Everfree Forest. Her powers aren't that interesting to me infact it's actually kind of weak where the characters get powers for no unexpected reason. Anyway if Princess Twilight did appear it would make this movie a little bet more interesting because they will give more development on Sunset's relationship with Princess Twilight. In Rainbow Rocks they gave the development to Sunset Shimmer very decent because Twilight was very stress on making the counter spell. I really like scenes when someone isn't always the answer to everything which makes Sunset a better character and it makes the relationship between her and Pony Twilight much better then Human Twilight, at least for my taste.

 

My 2nd problem is Flash Sentry. Now look I get why people really hate Flash but in my opinion he's harmless. I didn't like the romance between him and Twilight but after seeing Legend Of Everfree made me feel bad for him. Look I get that Princess Twilight always spent her time in Equestria but do you wanna know why I cringe at the scenes where Sunset talks to Flash about tough love? It's because Princess Twilight still has feelings towards Flash and the fact the Twilight doesn't know any other this makes this movie very difficult to watch at times. If your going to have this be it's own thing then have Princess Twilight know about this by being in LOE. Even if you love or hate the paring, it's still an issue when you don't have someone knowing what's going on with the other person. I really hate how people can find this acceptable no matter how hated the character is. Look just because Flash is a love interest doesn't mean he should be hated. I get he has no personality  traits but he barely appears in the TV show anymore and his role in the movies is so little that I was expecting more from him.

 

And now I should talk about the Specials because I have a lot to say about those. The first 2 Specials were just regular episodes from MLP but you can do more in the mirror world and that's about it. But when Mirror Magic premiered I despised it. If there's one thing I learned from that special is that magic are officially drugs. For the 4TH TIME! in Equestria Girls magic became a corrupted power again. Do you see why I found this depressing? They can't even find another original idea for this special so they have to do the same ideas they did in their other movies but this time they did it worse. Juniper is really not that interesting of her character because she's too predictable. She may be understandable about playing the role of Daring Do but she really doesn't learn anything from her limits and the fact that she gets corrupted by magic and apologizes makes me annoyed. How can anyone defend this when it keeps using the same ideas over and again over again? I know some people don't have a problem with this but Equestria Girls should do something different then having magic becoming an issue.

 

And now it's about Starlight Glimmer. It would have work if Princess Twilight knows about this because if your were never going to have Twilight be in the Mirror world, the very least is to have her know Starlight was going to hang out with Sunset Shimmer by being in her castle. I don't understand why she had to give Sunset massages outside of her castle. I get she probably wanted to make sure she will make contact with her more often unlike Friendship Games but considering the portal is always in her castle it won't make any difference anymore. And at the end of the special I really hate how they ended it because it felt rushed. I get that Starlight is independent but even in a world where we see no Human Starlight, Princess Twilight should give permission to her student on going to a world where she never been to before. To me the mirror world should be prevented unless Twilight can bring someone with her, it will make it at least safer from more paradox problems. I don't hate Mirror Magic anymore but I still can't find myself watching it again.

 

Thats all I have to say, look I get your really getting sick of my opinions being hammered in you minds but I'm sorry. Equestria Girls is starting to be more difficult to look at when it keeps going on its own without taking it seriously. I'm saying that I don't want all the characters from both worlds to interact (because to me that will be a real paradox), just Human and Princess Twilight. I use to be upset that Human Twilight's character is kind of maxed out but I hope they will do that in the 5th movie. Yes I know their doing a YouTube series but their probably hyping it up for the 5th movie. To me MLP will be less exciting without a movie next year.

 

Sorry that this was long to read because I have lot to explain and I still have other stuff I didn't get to explain. My thoughts on Equestria Girls changed a lot ever since I started to watch more from the cartoon this year.

I wish I could give my opinion on this, but I've still only watched the first EQG movie.

:( The second one is really good, though. Definitely a marked improvement from the first one.

I never read too much into it. It's the same voice actresses in another universe, and the quality has been strong. The Dazzlings are some of the best villains to come from either show and there is a huge demand for them to come back. Finally, the OP may get something from EQ, but it's not a personal happiness catering service for him/her. There are adults and kids who different aspects of EQ are aimed at; the same as MLP.
