And it Rocked!
It was everything the first movie should have done. I was very surprised and happy by the end of the movie and enjoyed it far better than the first EqG movie. If you can, I recommend you watch it. The only thing I would complain about is a couple if the songs seemed pretty weak. but overall a pleasant experience***SPOILERS PAST THIS POINT!!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!***
AND HOLY BUCKING MOON RABIES! OCTAVIA TALKED!!! OCTAVIA FREAKING TALKED! (for those new, Octavia is my Fave pony) I nearly shat myself and stopped myself from yelling out in the theater at that. Though I wasn't a fan of her voice, it was nice to see that she broke her silence before Vinyl but Vinyl had a bigger part at the end. Transformer Car much?
I also loved that cute piano scene with Lyra and Bon Bon, IT"S CANNON NOW! They are a couple! TOTALLY CANNON!
(might draw that if i find a good reference.)
Finally I dig the sirens, classic mythology there and overall a simple villain with simple goals.
So what did the rest of you think? Spoilers allowed in the comments, People have been warned.
