>that Diamond HAD an internal dilemma and that she really did WANT to be good

Agreed. It also should have been a two parter. So it could really show how DT and the CMC as well have a change of heart in trusting each other.

And in my opinion the CMC should have gotten a new purpose with their cutie marks, forcing them to reevaluate their friendship, which seems only to be based on them being blankflanks.

Good Songs, Blah Songs, Great Songs Nother Nonymous 36808636[View]

Let's talk about songs. Today we had another "musical" episode, with multiple songs cropping up throughout. The /pony/ consensus seems to be that they all sounded the same; and for a lot of us that sameness was a pretty blah sameness.

There are two problems with the songs in this show, and they've been getting worse. The first is that Ingram has pretty much stopped trying to push his limits, contenting himself with cutting out a few yards of generic pop and pasting them onto the words. The second is that the lyrics generally suck. There are six or seven songs where the words rhyme and scan (sort of) and have a few flashes of word music and poetic feeling: "Winter Wrap-Up," "At the Gala," "Hearts Strong as Horses," "The Flim Flam Song," "Smile, Smile, Smile," "I'll Fly," maybe a couple of others.

Contrast this with the best songs from "Fraggle Rock," which is a generally similar sort of kiddie show with adult appeal. The comparison shows what a difference musical inspiration, poetic skill, and acoustic music rather than electronic instrumentation make. Samples for discussion:


Different styles, different feelings -- but IMHO the least of them is a big improvement on the best of the MLP:FiM songs so far.

they mention this moment here, about seeing the movie for the first time with the excecutives...
what does it mean?
i guess the excecutives didnt like it?

Anonymous 36809046

I think one of the pinnacles of the show's songs was "Winter Wrap Up", it had a slightly poppy feel, but wasn't as bad as some of the later ones, and wasn't just doing a Jimmy Hart version of song. Was longer than what had come before, and unlike some of the recent ones kept a certain feel to it. It basically combined everything about "Smile", "Raise this Barn", "Apples to the Core", "Hearts Strong as Horses" and "This Day Aria", while excising much of the problems of those songs.

Nother Nonymous 36809057

File: 1444755983231.png (44.41 KB, 320x196, dramaticshot.png)

Yes. I was converted to watching MLP after seeing a YouTube clip of "Winter Wrap-Up." It's a really good song (despite some lame lyrics). But I think a lot of its impact is due to the animation. For example, that closing shot (returning to the opening spotlight effect) is just beautiful.

>characters like Dash and (a horribly OOC) Sweetie are actively dumping on Mac for what he's doing.
Rainbow Dash's lines seemed more like first playfully and directly teasing Mac because she knew he was disguised as someone that didn't actually exist, rather than just ribbing on him for wearing a dress.

And Sweetie Belle line's to Orchard Blossom were a deadpan response to the attempt to fool her by pointing out who it really was to show she wasn't fooled by this, and then later on said that what he was doing was sweet, if weird. And weird would still apply to how he was putting all this effort to an unneeded persona, since everyone still knew it was him and would be fine with him participating even if he was a male.

>Yeah, can't say I agree with that, given that Mac's previous speaking appearance had him dressed up as an alicorn princess.

It's possible that they either don't remember that shared dream, or it didn't happen since the chronology of some episodes can be mixed up.

Either way, he was still clearly and openly Big Mac. He didn't put on a wig and call himself Celestia's cousin.

Dash's line was more a joke to show how NOPONY was fooled by his disguise. Its the kind of random, meaningless threat that dash would make due to being a meathead. (I love dash as my favorite character, but I'll 100% admit she's by far the stupidest of the mane six, intelligence wise)

>The joke was that Steven is really impulsive and is known for doing cheesy performances at this event. Note how there's not a single line about him being in a dress
It's pretty much the end sequence, so, ignoring the song lyrics, there are exactly 2 lines after Steven puts on the dress, one of which is
>Looks like you called it, Gunga.
...Which, personally, I took as Nanefua calling that it would be Steven crossdressing as the mystery act, though I suppose you could take it as just her guessing that he'd be the act at all.

Meanwhile, Big Mac puts on the disguise near the start and "dress" (as a noun) is only said once, by Sweetie, who switches straight to calling him "cousin Orchard Blossom" after he's nice to her. And again, while the humour hinges around the clothes being silly and the disguise being unconvincing (both common in comedy), ponies are still polite and stick to female pronouns/etc and refer to Big Mac as "Orchard Bloom", just because they gather he wants them to. Clearly the staff KNOW he doesn't have to be female to enter, so surely the only reason they don't explain is because they assume he must just want to dress like that and be called Orchard Blossom?

Apart from Dash, Scoot, and Apple Bloom, ponies take it in their stride, and Big Mac brushes off Dash and Scoot with no problem and clearly starts to win Apple Bloom over in parts.

>>Big Mac wearing a dress isn't something that matches his character

>Yeah, can't say I agree with that, given that Mac's previous speaking appearance had him dressed up as an alicorn princess.
Not a prince, then? And the "impractical clothing" side was missing along with, as Marimo points out, the "disguise" aspect.

Really, it was very much like Big Mac's version of Apple Jewel, and very much unlike a continuous set of "and here's Big Mac in a dress"/"off you go, sir"/"mummy, why's he wearing girl clothes?" jokes.

Do you think we can finally see some major development on Spike?

Do you think they'll finally help him achieve his destiny? I mean he may not have a cutie mark, but he has shown he's adept in and has a passion for protecting others.

Perhaps he might have a place being a guardian to Equestria as a whole, a living embodiment of Rainbow Power/EoH.

I really don't understand how you're making this connection. All those things you're listing are not things that are specific to Goku or Superman. Hell, most of them seem like headcanon, compared to how the writers have been treating him.

Ever since S1, Spike has been the "annoying little brother" trope in a majority of his appearances, and constantly being the target of slapstick and other physical-abuse humor.

Unless since they decided to keep twilight around instead of shipping her off, she's just going to become the main character AGAIN and then just have some movie about her for... no reason. Because Twilight is main character. Sunset will be back in the shadow just like Equestria Girls 2. Thanks Hasbro.

Unlikeable Pony 36808478

File: 1444460888063.png (182.5 KB, 894x894, sunsssss.png)

I seriously doubt it after seeing FG.
Its sunset's show now, they're not going to stop doing that UNLESS her toy sales tank, which I don't think they will do. (as she'd have to tank HARDCORE to sway the staff).
Next movie: Probably sunset doing all those deleted scenes from this movie, and the villain being an individual who's obsessed with escapist fantasies and wants to go to equestria because its "magical" and sunset talking them down by telling them how great their world and the friends there are.

going to say though, I don't want EITHER sunset or Twilight to be this pushed. I liked sunset's story in RR, as it was pretty subdued and though it was a big part of the movie it still had the focus pretty heavy on the others and the mane six as a whole and their dynamics.
FG... yeah, basically the others were background characters for all they mattered.

That's the regular year. Many companies end and start a new fiscal year around October since you've got to close out the whole year's accounting books, and December is when a lot of the accountants and executives are taking time off. Plus all the revenue from holiday sales takes time to account for, and a lot of stuff bought for the holidays can also wind up being returned in the following months, so its easier to account for if the holiday months and the ones following it are all accounted for in the same year.

(on that note, STILL waiting for S5 toys for the finale, there seems to be a definite "hole" of sorts for this season in toys, as there cutie mark magic toys are still just the ones from the start of the year without any big special ones)
