Just BARELY 3 stars. The action scenes alone get it there. Other than that, there was Just. So. Much. Talking. SHOW US, DON'T TELL US!
And Electro was a villain straight out of Batman Forever, origin and all.
Just bequeath the rites to Spidey back to Marvel. They can sit on him for 10 years and then do it right.
I'm not a brony. I've got nothing against them; I just wouldn't sit down to watch MLP if it weren't for my 4 year old daughter.
That being said, these ponies don't pull any punches. They pack a tremendous amount of fantasy plot into a children's cartoon.
Equestria Girls is not without its plot holes (Why does Twilight Sparkle not have a human doppleganger when all of her friends do?) and there is a HUGE data dump to tell us…
Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful. I am ASTOUNDED by the cinematography. I have no idea how this movie was assembled.
The score was visceral. At times the hope was all consuming, and at other times the instrumentation was reduced to noise.
The scientist in me had issue with plot points...but I really don't care. THIS is a film.
