who got swagg? first art trade! by gianna156

Gianna, as the man who is in here, let me just say that you did an outstanding job at drawing my OC! You copied every detail that you s...

Yes, people, pop the sodas and pour out the popcorn and let's review the sequel to the best thing out of the 4th generation of this show, in my opinion, shall we?

SPOILERS AHEAD! SPOILERS AHEAD! PROCEED WITH CAUTION! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!


So, the movie starts out with basically all of the preview clips that Hasbro has given us earlier. Seriously, minus a few lines of dialogue and, of course, the new opening sequence, the preview clips that we've seen, set up in a certain order is the opening act of this movie. Which, isn't really a bad thing. It's just...weird.

Anyways, the actual story is this; 3 teenage girls are stuck in the Equestrian Girls' universe.

You got Adagio; the lead whose poofy hair could rival with Pinkie Pie.

Aria; a purple pigtailed one who manages to give less of a crap than Total Drama season 1 Gwen, Shego and Vanessa Doofenshmirtz put together.

And lastly, Sonata; who is my favorite. Which is no surprise because she won the best Dazzling award before the 2nd trailer got out. She's adorable, she's slow witted in a way that stays comedic and her name is, freaking, Sonata! Like Moonlight Sonata! From Beethoven! :dummy:

And once they see Twilight and the Humane 5's Rainbow Powered beam that kicks Sunset Shimmer where the sun don't set, they find out that there is magic in this world.

The villains of this movie are the Dazzlings; 3 girl who were banished into the human world with only the magic in their jeweled pendents around their necks.

One opening sequence later, we cut to Canterlot High where the kids are getting ready for a big musical show. And whenever Sunset Shimmer tries to help, no one wants her help and she gets embarrassed and regretful of her past self. I, freaking, love this. I love the fact that Sunset is growing as a character and isn't some pathetic mean girl we were suppose to look at as a villain. That was honestly my opinion of Sunset when I first saw the first movie. But the more I saw the movie, the more I liked Sunset, for some reason. And now I know why; it's because in the scene where Sunset is defeated, she shows that she actually regrets it. Most cases I've seen when a villain regrets what he's done, it's usually really cheesy. Like how they did it in shows like the Bubble Guppies and Team Umizoomi. Nice to see that it can be done in a way that doesn't make it look as a cop out.

Anyways, after the teens get ready for the show, the Humane 5 go to a band practice and Sunset reflects on her character more. From only dating Flash Sentry to get more popular, to the fact that she turned into that demon thing, etc. One musical number that's called "Better than Ever" and is better than ever, we see my least favorite in this entire series; Flash Sentry.

YEAH, I SAID IT!

I hate the Flash Sentry character because he was useless in the last movie and he was useless now. In fact, after something he did, which we'll get to later, I may actually hate him more now. For now, let me just say that I hate him because he's a boring character. He's a cliched pretty boy. And omitting all of the scenes he was in from both movies would do little to nothing.

Anyways, after their little band practice, Sunset give the Dazzlings a tour of the school, they act weird around Sunset with their pendants and at lunch, they sing their song that hypnotizes everyone into making the musical showcase be a battle of the bands. And worst still; when they go to Principals Luna and Celestia to tell them about it, it seems they were under the spell too! :noes:

I guess now the girls can go up to the principals and tell them about the weird stuff going around without them think they're :iconprincesslunaplz:-tic.

 :iconrimshotplz: Thank you. I'll be here all week.

Anyways, with the Humane 5 and Sunset now being the only ones who aren't under the Dazzings' spell, Sunset devices a plan to contact Twilight in Equestria. Turns out, before Sunset abandoned her studies, Princess Celestia gave her a book that, when written in it, will send a message to the matching book that she has.

It's the equivalent of sending a text on a phone! And the fact the book glows and buzzes whenever the message goes through made me do a mental rofl. :laughing:

Back in Equestria, Twilight and the Mane 6 are sprucing up Twilight's new castle, which she got in season 4's finale. That's when the book lights up, since it was in the pile of books Celestia donated to Twilight. When she reads the message, she finds out that the Dazzlings are sirens.

Also, if you heard a big rumble just now, that was every Brony going "called it!".

And the weirdest part was that the sirens were banished, not by Celestia, not by Luna, not by Derpy, but by Starswirl the Bearded.

Starswirll is a pony that is mentioned numerous times in the show. Twilight dressed as him for "Nightmare Night" (Equestria's Halloween), there's a whole section of him in the Canterlot library, there's a convention on the guy, he helped convert the brother of the season 4 finale villain and it's even rumored that Discord might even big a corrupted version of him.

Turns out Starswirled used a spell that he thought would of banished the sirens to a world where they would have no magic.

Starswirl, you couldn't of been more wrong.

Twilight manages to create a machine that taps into the magic of the message book and put it into the mirror, allowing her to go into the portal whenever she pleases. She and Spike go in, regroup with the now Humane 6 and they talk about the situation, Twilight's new responsibilities and the fact that the Humane 5 keep turn into their Anthro forms whenever they play music.

Then when they try to confront the Dazzlings at a school party, things get...awkward. The magical whatdafuck the happened last time doesn't happen this time. And during the scene, it was so obvious that it was not going to work that I felt some sort of pre-awkward tingles. That's one thing this movie has as a problem; too many awkward moments that make me wanna facepalm, cover my ears or stick my whole head in my snack bag to ease the pain.

I wish I was joking.

The girls figure out that the only way to beat the Dazzlings is to compete in the battle of the bands and use a magical spell to undo the effects. And Twilight is left with the task of writing the spell. Twilight may of earned her wings from finishing Starswirl's unfinished spell in the end of the 3rd season, but that isn't the same as writing a whole new one. During a slumber party where the girls take selfies, chat on myspace-like websites, play video games, eat pizza and I am so glad I am not kidding here :meow:, Twilight tries to write the song the girls will need to undo the spell. However, she's having so much trouble that she wakes up in the middle of the night to work on it.

And that's when Sunset runs into her while getting a midnight snack. The 2 end up having a conversation about expectations, good and bad, and how they both end up being bad. Which is nice because it shows that Twilight and Sunset having things in common.

You know, besides their names. I mean, seriously; Sunset Shimmer, Twilight Sparkle. :giggle: Who writes this crap? A thesaurus?

Skipping ahead to Twilight singing the bad song she wrote badly. And this is a point where the movie shows that the Humane 5 were having problems with starting a band. Most of which involves and revolves around Rainbow Dash's gargantuan ego. :stare: I swear, Rainbow's behavior in the movie kept making me wanna blue skidoo into the film and slap her in the face with her own guitar just to get her to shut the black buck up! From taking smack about her friend's performance, to ignore Fluttershy's countless requests to write her own song, to constantly calling it her band, since it's named after her and she's the lead vocalist.

It brings me guilt from my past version of Falcon Tales. :saddummy: 

At the battle of the bands, all of the students are rude and mean to each other thanks to the Dazzlings' spell. And here's the point about Flash that I said made me hate him more.

Flash downright ignore Twilight talking to him and then yells at Twilight for coming over to win the battle of the bands from him, since he wants it so bad. Like everyone else. Ordinarily, I would question why any of them are still tempted to win so badly, since there is no prize or stakes of any kind. But then I remember the rationalizations that were asked in the last movie. And also realized it didn't really matter, since they were all hypnotized. But that's not the point. Flash was not only unnecessarily mean in this scene but he's just 
unnecessarily unnecessary in this whole franchise. He does next to nothing. Spike does more than his does, and that's pathetic. No offense, Spike.

Anyways, the girls don't do well in either their performances. First time was thanks to some sabotaging from the other 
performers, the other was because Rainbow dash was so into her egotistical song that she almost went anthro in front of the Dazzlings, which resulted in Sunset having to glomp her in front of everyone. Convincing everyone that she hasn't changed at all and is still the badgirl they know and loath. Next, the Dazzling's manipulate Trixie to be the villain at one point; trapping the humane 6 and Sunset underneath the stage the finals is suppose to be. And during Trixie's band's performance, the ultimate bicker explodes.

See, through out the film, it's not just Rainbow Dash's enough-to-slap-her-with-a-guitar egotisticalness that stirs the group. It also comes from Pinkie's frustration of how un-fun this band has become and Rarity and AJ's quarrel about whether or not the costumes they wear matter.

Cough, cough, they don't, cough. :B

And this is actually good because having these points in different parts of the movie allows the girls to finally snap and go all out on each other, allowing the Dazzlings to feed off of not just their bad mojo, but also their magic, finally given them the recharge they needed. And they go full siren!

Ok, the designs for the Dazzlings' siren forms is amazing. You bronies remember those accursed seapony things from one of the past generations? Well, the siren forms are not only about as close to that as this series is ever gonna get, but it's pretty, freaking, terrifying to say the least.

Seriously, I'm gonna have nightmares about those freaky half-horse, half-sea-monster things. And just like the Humane 6, the Dazzlings have anthro forms. They grow wings that are light and delicate, like a fairy's, and are yet ragged and kinda scary, like that of a bat. It almost looks like what you'd expect Tinkerbell's evil twin's wings to look like.

And the sirens' forms come in time for the big finale fight. Thanks to the help of, not kidding here, human Vinyl Scratch. Who was the only one who didn't get hypnotized by the spell, thanks to her constantly wearing headphones. And with the help of her car that transforms into the ultimate wubb machine--again, not kidding here!--, and Sunset Shimmer starting them off, the girls sing a song that defeats the Dazzlings. And break their pendents to pieces. And it turns out that, they can't really sing without them.

Dazzlings + Magical Pendents = Musical Hypnosis

Dazzlings - Magical Pendents = FOR THE LOVE OF MY BLEEDING EARS, MAKE IT STOP!!! :nuu:

So with the Dazzlings defeated and the spell broken, Twilight and Spike return to Equestria. Now with the portal overclocked, Twilight has the ability to come and visit whenever she wants. And with the whole 
text message book, Sunset sends messages to Twilight on a regular basis, the same way Twilight use to do with Celestia. And now Sunset is the Twilight for the Humane 6.

And the end credits, even the freaking end credits are great in the movie. For 4 reasons.

  1. The song that they play is really catchy, like most of the songs in this movie.
  2. They show clips of Sunset doing good things around her school.
  3. They show these pictures of the humanized versions of the characters in a style that looks like something you could find on a fan art site of the show. I really doubt that was unintentional.
  4. You guys know how in the very last minute of the last movie's credits, we get a tidbit of human Derpy dancing with a muffin? This movie's tidbit has that, freaking, licked.
One of the most common questions about this movie to linger over the heads of many bronies, including myself, was "Is Human Twilight going to be in this movie?".

In a way, it's a yes.

Right at the end of the credits, we someone making a bulletin board of strange weather patterns, earthquake readings, scraps of newspaper and stuff like that. And it all points to one place; Canterlot High. When the camera flips to 180, we see that the bulletin board was made by Human Twilight!!!

Not the Human Twilight that was born in Equestria and went into the human world. I mean the Human Twilight that was born in the human world! And she has a Spike of her own! Grant it, he doesn't talk, but, hey, you can't ask for too much.

With an ending like this, the question isn't if they're going to continue this series; it's when are they. They're been rumors about a spin off series going around called "Equestria Academy" and with a little tease like this, there just might be a third movie to the series. What it will be about, you guess is as good as mine.

The EQ movies both based around things normal teen girls did, but since they did proms, sleepovers and rock bands, what could they do next? A beach party?

:iconblushingmadplz:...then again...

All in all, Equestria Girls: Rainbow Rocks was not only an awesome movie, but it just might be better than the original. Which is considered rare for me, since sequels aren't usually well done

:iconstewiegriffinplz: "This has been cheeseburger humor."

No, but seriously, I liked the movie. It had great music, the human designs are just as good here as they were in the last movie and they show new characters; Lyra Heartsrings, Bon Bon, Maud Pie and Bulk Biceps. Sure, there are a lot of faceplam scenes for me, like Ego Dash and Flash Sentry's overall existence, but no film is perfect. But it expands on Sunset's character in a way I was really hoping they would. Grant it, if you didn't like the first Equestria Girls movie, you're not gonna like this one. But if you did like it, you'll like this one. It's worth checking out and I am dying to find out what the creators of this show can do with this concept. I really hope they do another movie and do that sequel anytime soon.

I'm Ruben Falcon, signing off saying "Rock the Rainbow, Taste the Rainbow".
