With a week left in the wait for the biggest movie in-and-out of Equestria, Brainstormer here with another journal post about it.
And the 2nd to last time I did a post on E.G., I focused on the first trailer, or at least started the post on it. This time, I'm talking about the 2nd trailer that was released just a few days ago. And I'm gonna try and talk about it a little more, so I guess you can call this a review, in a way.
The trailer starts with Twilight, the rest of the Mane 6 and Spike going to the Crystal Kingdom. The next scene has Twilight, sleeping in a bed in the castle. My guess is that the gang is staying over there just for a visit or maybe on some sort of royal equivalent of a business trip. But Twilight wakes up in the night and finds a hooded mare stealing her crown! After a short chase scene, they end up in a room with a magic mirror (That was very well designed ) and the crown falls in there. And the thief follows it. Cadance explains that Twilight needs to follow it or else the Elements Of Harmony will never work again.
No pressure then.
Twilight and Spike go into the portal and as soon as she opens her eyes, Twilight has become a human the first thing she sees it Spike as a dog. Also: SPIKE CAN TALK! SPIKE IS A TALKING DOG!!! I hoped that Spike was going to be able to talk, and he does! Epic Win, peoples! Anyways, Twilight adjusts to being a human, not being able to use magic, standing on 2 legs and stuff like that. Kinda makes being a human look like crap.
Anyways, after running into carbon copies of the other ponies, she finds out her crown is the crown for the prom queen--my bad, princess and she needs to be the princess of the Fall Formal. That's the name of the prom.
And the trailer ends with a song that is 1100,000.65 times better than the one from the last trailer.
"Jump up, make a sound. HEY! Stomp your hooves, turn around! Canterlot! Wonder Colts! Help her win the crown!"
That is awesome! I've been singing it to myself ever since I saw that, freaking, song. And it's more upbeat and catchy than the last one. The "Come and Taaaake myyy haaaand!" or however the last one went. The last one, to me, seems more generic to a movie about kids in high school.
Speaking of generic, there's also a boy in the movie and when the general fandom public saw him and saw Twilight hug him, they think that he's going to be Twi's guy, if you catch my drift. And they think it is a bad thing...Why? What's bad about Twilight finally getting a man? I mean, what's gonna happen? If Twilight is smart enough to finish the unfinished spell of a sorcerer that was alive before her time, she's smart enough to be in love with a guy and still focus on her mission. Plus, after all of her work and rescues and adventures, I think Twi deserved a boyfriend, like, a season ago. Plus, there's a solder in the beginning of the trailer that looks just like the guy. So, he's one both sides of the universe.
Lastly, the trailer ends with this hilarious dialogue.
Spike: "Those my girls! Whoo-hoo!"
Some guy: "Did that dog just talk?"
Spike: "The talking dog is the weird thing about all this?"
Anyways, I'm still looking forward for this movie. And this new trailer just made me more excited for it. In fact, a lot of fans, including in a post he did a few hours ago, say that this should of been the first trailer rather the other one. And I agree! Not only does this tell more about the story than the last one did, it seems more exciting than the last one was and it has a better song than the old one had. And I bet if they posted this one first, there would of been less fandom tension than the old one made.
But, even though I'm looking forward to this movie, I still have no opinion on it. Because expectations (Which I have a lot of) are different from opinions (Which I have none of).
But, I promise you, a week from today, I am going to see this movie. I don't care if the ticket booth guys there look at me like "", I don't care if my classmates in school find out and I become the laughing stock for my last year in school, I don't even care if I go there and I am, literally, the only guy that sees the movie at that time: I am going to see it.
And a lot of my fellow Bronies and Pegasisters friends say that I shouldn't go to the movie while it's in theaters and just see it when it's on TV or on DVD. 2 holes with that logic:
1. The DVD is released in August and I can't wait that long.
And 2. The movie gets released onto TV in autumn! Which is even harder to wait for!
No contest: I'm going to the movies next Sunday! I need some "me" time, anyways.
So, in short, I'm really looking forward for this movie and I still don't have an opinion on it: YET! But by this time next week, I will.
Here's the Trailer, for those who haven't seen it: [link]
And with all of that being said, this is Brainstormer, Over, Under and Out!
