Lionsgate have put exactly zero effort into making My Little Pony: The Movie even remotely cinematic
It’s incredible that a company such as Pixar can produce the most amazingly beautiful films, and then this dross can be rolled out into the cinema with the same technology available from a different company. Lionsgate have put exactly zero effort into making My Little Pony: The Movie even remotely cinematic.
Princess Twilight Sparkle (Tara Strong) is tasked with putting on a huge party for pop singer Songbird Serenade (Sia). However, when the evil unicorn Tempest (Emily Blunt) gatecrashes the event, Twilight and her friends must escape, and find a way of saving their city.
The songs are terrible, the characters are frightfully 1 dimensional, and there was no attempt towards making this a film with meaning. It’s okay for a half hour television show to have fun with no overarching moral, but a film needs a purpose and this doesn’t have one. Even if the target age is very young, quality is and should be demanded.
It’s genuinely an awful excuse for an animation and deserves zero credit. It feels like three or four television episodes loosely strung together. A complete waste of time.
