To Where And Back Again: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
In this episode, Queen Chrysalis captures the mane 6, the princesses and some others to her hive. Now I have talked about this before:
Top 16 Favorite Animations of 2016Top 16 Best Animations of 2016
And now for the best. I put more on this list because we had ALOT more good animations that bad ones this year. Heck, I don't think I could ONLY do a top 10 like I did for the worst. There's just THAT MUCH GOOD! Once again, one per franchise. Movies allowed. But I won't put "Kubo and the 2 strings" on this because I have not seen that movie. From what I heard, I'm PRETTY sure that it DESERVES to be on this list! But I'm not since I didn't see it. Once again like for the worst, I didn't go out of my way to see EVERY animation of this year! I haven't seen Regular Show, Adventure Time, Gumball, Harvey Beaks and SO MANY MORE shows this year! There were SO MANY cuts that I had to make for this list! But 16 is my limit. I'm also leaving off Zootopia. It would be number 9 or number 8, but I'm leaving it off because I want to say stuff for OTHER things! Zootopia gives me nothing new to say that you haven't heard before. I could probably do a top 50 for the
First Impressions: To Where and Back AgainEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
After 2 weeks of dodging spoilers and wasting my time watching bad cartoons, i can FINALLY see the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 6 FINALE FINALLY!
I'm glad i waited, but it was hard to do. It was worth the wait. It may be cliche or too quick to say this, but I don't care. This is my NEW favorite episode of the show, hay, maybe even favorite animation! (Though when you compare it to "Sausage Party" and "That's too much man" from "Bojack Horseman" it's hard to say.) But i still think this is the one.
Starlight gets an invite to a sunset festival to her old town thanks to Derpy's delivery. She gets scared going back there with even a dream on how she gets scared and how her old friends betray her. (Oh so Starlight CAN be like Bojack when it comes to old friends! With Bojack and Herb that is.) Princess Luna appears twice in her dreams. And the second time she enforms her of the Changelings and that Queen Chrysalis returns. (Wait, is that the first time
My Thoughts on MLP Season 6My Thoughts on MLP Season 6
But there’s no new My Little Pony episode.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t TALK about My Little Pony!
So My Little Pony is done for the year and will resume in the spring. With that in mind, I figured that I could write my opinions on this season. This is my FINAL decisions on each episode! First Impressions were only journal entries right after I watched the episode for the first time. And since today is the first Saturday without an MLP episode, I figured that today would be the PERFECT day to talk about the episodes this season.
Oh and SPOILERS if you haven’t watched the whole season yet! So I just thought that I’d say that before you read this.
Should I give scores for each of these episodes? NAH! I’ll just give my opinion on each one and that will be it. I gave scores on my Rick and Morty and Family Guy season ones, but I won’t here. So let’s begin.
Episode 1 & 2: The Cr
Starlight Glimmer: Best character everStarlight Glimmer: How I feel about herAnd this episode has my favorite character in animation Starlight Glimmer be the star in it and she needs to overcome her fear of being a leader again since last time she was a leader, it didn't work out so well. I wouldn't call her a "villain" per say despite what the show says. It's more of "Misguided." If you know what I mean. My username StarlightGGiantess5 I got the idea form her so yeah that's kind of important. Trixie is also in this so seeing her makes me happy. Then Thorax and Discord follow pursuit. Essentially they make a "Suicide Squad." And considering that I love the movie Suicide Squad, I thought that this was a nice touch. I don't think it's ripping it off because if it WAS ripping it off, it would have been too quick to be it. The only way to rip off that movie in less than 2 months is if this show had the budget of South Park, Legends of Chamberlain Heights, 12 oz., Alice 2010 or Newborn Cooties. This episode feels like it took 9+ months. The animation is some of the best that I have ever seen. So in short it's a coincidence. And 2016 was an EPIC year for animation! Probably the best out there. I enjoy how bad and idiotic the changelings try to be when they are the mane 6 and Spike. (Including a funny joke of Rarity punching Spike. XD) I also enjoy how they communicate with Queen Chrysalis. Also this is the first episode that they ever address her by her actual name Queen Chrysalis. It's also nice to hear how The Great and Powerful Trixie and Queen Chrysalis are both voiced by Kathleen Barr. (Side note: she also did Kevin in Ed, Edd N' Eddy and Mrs.Twombly and Jasper in Littlest Pet Shop.) John De Lancie is still funny as always as Discord. In fact I think he does a better Discord job here than the season 4 finale. (It's funny when he complains about the "Decent chaos." XD)
Cutie Markless: Or when she was first announced.
Present me (As in, if I went back in time to tell my past self on this character. What I say as my past self is how I first actually felt on Starlight Glimmer.): Hey! Have you heard about the new villain for the season 5 premire of My Little Pony?
Past me: I don't know if I'm going to like this character or not. It looks like she is going to be that generic CEO villain that you see in like EVERY other cartoon ever! She feels like she could EASILY be just another "Great and Powerful" Trixie. Or she could just be like another Sunset Shimmer.
Present me: Naw come on man! You gotta watch it! Starlight Glimmer changed my life!
Past me: A purple, pink and blue unicorn changed your life? >:[
Present me: Hey, didn't a purple unicorn change your life? And didn't you say that My Little Pony is your favorite cartoon? Just wait till she first airs next week (April.) and then you'll see how good she i
I think what makes me enjoy this animation the most is that it does many things right where it could have easily gone wrong. Like the dream sequence: it could have failed in 2 ways, 1. Say the whole episode is a dream and nothing is real or 2. Do a Brian Griffin drug trip from Family Guy Seahorse Seashell Party. Actually Starlight's dream sequence is similar to "Downer Ending" when Bojack took drugs to help write his novel. (It's also nice seeing Princess Luna in it. )In fact I like this dream sequence more since it moves more of the plot forward. The moral: probably what makes this episode best besides the story. Starlight needing to learn how to be a leader is important since she fucked up one time and thinks that if she ever was a leader again she would be bad. But thankfully she learns how to be a better leader when she leads Trixie, Thorax and Discord. Also, Kelly Sheridan, who voices Starlight Glimmer noticed me.
(Side note: She also did a character in Sausage Party. My favorite movie ever and 2nd favorite animation ever.)
The fights with the changelings are epic AND dark! Like how basically it looks like they massacred Trixie on screen. And Discord being smart enough to know that Fluttershy was a changeling right away surprised me. He knew the set up. He was smart enough to not fall for that stupid trick that cartoon characters usually fall for. (I recall Soos falling for it once in Gravity Falls with the skull thing from the Summerween episode.) Also Discord and Trixie have a good chemistry. The scene where Starlight reforms the changelings is probably my favorite scene in animation ever. I know that some people hated the fact that Starlight Glimmer reformed the changelings. Honestly, that didn't bother me. In fact, I like the newer designs over the old ones. What I would NOT have been fine with though if Krissi got reformed. She doesn't seem to be the type to get reformed and we need at least one villain to stay a villain. Thankfully she is still a villain and managed to escape. Also I enjoy Starlight's speech on how to be a leader.
Starlight: I know what it's like to lead by fear and intimidation! And I know what it's like to want everypony to do what you say! But I was wrong. A real leader doesn't force her subjects to deny who they are! She celebrates what makes them unique and listens when one of them finds a better way!
Me: And the one that is said later:
Starlight: I guess after the way I used my magic on all of you, I wasn't sure I was somepony who should even be in charge of a baking contest. I was afraid I might go back to being the pony I used to be. But I realize that sometimes you don't have a choice. You have to step up. And I have changed! I can handle it. Whether that means saving Equestria or helping friends out with the Sunset Festival.
Me: It may just may be me, but do you think the ponies of her old village pretty much act the same way having their cutie marks as they did with OUT!? Also they tore down Starlight Glimmer's old house. (No joke. Take a close look in the finale. The house is gone.) I mean I thought they would treat Starlight kind of like her first dream sequence or better yet how Bojack interprets Herb in Downer Ending. She definitely has improved in season 6 with her new mane. I truly believe that Starlight is the best character ever and this is her best appearance ever making it my favorite animation ever.
Starlight: Where’s that baking contest? THIS PONY NEEDS A CUPCAKE! >:]
Me: And that's my opinion on what my favorite animation is. It's just the best overall in terms of writing, acting and animation. /) On the other hand.
Where the Dead Go to Die.
I've talked about this before as well:
Top 10 Worst Animations of 2016Top 10 worst animations of 2016
2016 is coming to a close (Happy New year's eve. ) And when it comes to animation, I think that this was its best year ever for it. No seriously, I think 2016, out of ALL 100+ years of animation (1906 was the first year of animation with "The Humorous Phases of Funny faces.) this was the best one! At least in what we were shwon.
Yeah, the networks, in the interior, were not good this year. For those who don't know what I mean right there:
Exterior: What the viewer (like you and I.) see on the TV. It's the main focus of the networks for advertisements and for viewership counts.
Interior: As if you actually worked in an animation studio. What you produce to a network to release to the public.
But, talking about the animation companies is not what we're here for. (That's going to be a future journal for the record.) We're here to talk about what they produced this year. And we have a "few" duds here and there. Most of the bad stuff honestly was
Where the Dead Go to DieDo not watch this movie. I don't care if you're morbidly curious. Do not watch this movie. It is one of the most vile, disgusting things that I have ever seen.
I was trying to watch very scary things yesterday for Halloween, and I was wondering if there were really scary animated movies. I remember there was Where the Dead Go to Die, so I watched its entirety yesterday. And now my fucking brain hurts. You know the Pandora Box theory where if you opened the box, all evil will be released? Well, I would open that box apparently because that's what THIS movie feels like! ALL EVIL! I know everyone says this, but yeah, it is animated WORSE than a Xbox kinect! I should have listened to the others, BUT I DIDN'T LISTEN! I know I said a while back I wouldn't review it, and I'm still not for the record, but I only saw the trailer for it as well as reviews for it. That's why I said it then.
I think at some point, I made a mistake. And this was probably my worst one yet. Where the Dead Go to Die i
This <Ahem> *Animation* contains everything that I hate about animation. No wait that was the Drawn Together Movie. This contains things that I thought could have NEVER hated! Now I've said that I have more respect for this than something like say Da Boom Crew. But that's only because this told an original story. But that's the ONLY reason! "Tainted Milk" has Mr. Pickles ripping off a father's penis. I think Adult Swim saw this and stole this idea for the show Mr. Pickles. I mean, the boy in this, let's call it "Short" is named Tommy. One of the main characters in Mr. Pickles is also named Tommy. (And no it's not a God damn Rugrats reference.) The short even has plot holes. Okay, it's outright stated from Labby, which I'll never be able to look at Labradoodles again. (I own a cute Labradoodle for the record so I want to say FUCK YOU to this movie right off the bat for ruining my favorite type of dog! ) Labby tells Tommy that he must rip off the dad's dick and rip open his mom's womb so that he can kill his newborn brother before he even is born. That way the mom's "Milk" can be tainted because apparently the newborn son is somehow related to the Devil (or he's an Antichrist.) and by doing this it will stop Satan's powers. (I wish I was making this shit up.) Even though Labby states that Tommy has to do it, Labby does it anyway causing a plot hole. And after we get to see the dad's dick ripped off and the newborn baby fetus being dragged by the dog, we see the dog fuck the mom and Tommy fuck Labby at the exact same time to make it "Truly tainted." And that's the opening act. Nothing I have ever seen has ever been THAT bad prior! And that is actually the "Best" part of this movie. This movie also has seizures like the Problem Solverz. I don't think that if you watch this movie, you'll vomit per say. I at least didn't I don't know how you feel when you watch incest. (It's disgusting to say the least.) But you will have nightmares beyond all belief. Jimmy Screamerclauz, the guy who made this movie claims that he was on pot when he wrote this. First of all, BULL FUCKING SHIT! Look, after watching Regular Show, which is CLAIMED to be a Drug trip, being on drugs is NOT an excuse to be shit. And that was made 6 YEARS before this shit! (This came out in 2012.) And second, I don't think weed (I don't do drugs for the record.) would make you see this bizarre shit. And if it did, we probably wouldn't have a drug problem in our world. (Idea for antidrug PSA. Show them THIS movie and say that this is what drugs due to you. You'd win instantly. Just like on how to prevent sex, show Mega Babies.)
Actually, one way that I could sum up this movie is call it the "King of Ren Seeks Help." Think about it: Ren shows us some fucked up visuals in his episode and shows a lot of torture to unneeded creatures. Same thing goes here but instead to animals, it's to humans. And this goes on for an hour and a half. And it just may be me, but I think torture is worse when it happens to small human children than to animals. The animation has the worst lip syncing that I have ever seen. Foreign cartoons are better than this. At least form what I REMEMBER. I mean, my favorite animation To Where And Back Again I watched over half a dozen times so I can easily tell you what I remember. This shit I BARELY could make it through one time! I first watched this movie on October 31st, 2016 and TWABA on October 22nd. So yeah that was close bad timing per say.
If this is a comedy, which is what Jimmy scary last name is claiming to be, then you're evil in thinking that a mom fucking her own children is funny and making fun of Christians and Atheists and whatnots just for the sake of making fun of them is comedy in the slightest terms. If this is meant to be taken serious, then it is FAR, FAR WORSE! In fact if it is serious, then it's more offensive than Screams of Silence: The Story of Brenda Quagmire AND Strange Magic! This movie by the way has some of the worst 3D animation that I have ever seen. Not THE worst. I still think Dorbees and Rapsittie Kids is cheaper, but at least they don't show Hentai Porn.
And now for the worst part. I stated my favorite thing in TWABA is the story and characters. The worst is what I just said. In one part, a father demands that his little daughter who is younger than 9 to fuck a boy who is probably 10. And he video tapes her while doing this. Reasonably, the girl is super scared. But when she refuses, her dad forces her to be hung by a ceiling fan by her neck in chains and she has to continue being strangled and hung until she follows daddy's orders. (This...can't be legal right?) Forget about that scene disgusting or scaring me. The movie did that to me prior. It's pathetic, offensive, disgusting and every other negative emotion ever. It's truly the worst scene in animation ever. NO! In existence.
And unlike Sausage Party, they don't do a good job making fun of religions.
Anything else? Well we have a guy who is able to steal other people's memories. Which honestly, that is one of the BEST ideas ever! But I complained about it before. Blah, blah, blah, wasted potential. Oh and the memories we DO get to see is a mom fuck her own children. You thought Peter marrying Chris in Fresh Heir was bad? At least they never actually SHOWED incest! Speaking of Family Guy, you miles well call this movie "Brian Griffin's drug trip." Because it's basically Brian's Drug trip form Seahorse Seashell Party, but instead of 2 minutes it's an hour and a half long. We have weird one eyed creatures. You CAN make one eye creatures look pleasant! Mike from Monster's Inc., Leela from Futurama and Iris from Ruby Gloom are all good examples. Not this. There's also these "Happy" face guys. Which is creepier than any occult of equality that I'll ever see. (Starlight reference.) Incest without a doubt is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. And this movie goes ALL the way out with it! The ONLY saving grace is that it's only done mainly by one guy and the animation looks bad. Imagine if DISNEY did something like this! Actually, don't because that's too nightmarish.
I'm done here.
StarlightGGiantess5, Homestuckbrony3, Rebeccah or Ryan, out!
Oh and happy Pi day.
I dunno, what about you guys? What's your favorite and least favorite animations?
