  1. Maybe realism isn't quite the right word. I guess I was thinking that this movie is more detailed than the relatively simpler style of G4, and thus, phenomena that defy the typical laws of physics are more easily identifiable; there's less leeway in the style of the movie to assume or imagine a solution to the "magnetic hooves" dilemma that we just can't see because of the drawing style or lack of detail or whatnot. In the movie, we can clearly see that characters' hooves are flat and essentially smooth, and so, for example, when Sprout waves his aviator sunglasses around and points them at Su
  2. Zipp is my favorite of the Mane Five so far. I like that she's a princess, and next in line to be queen, but she's not pretentious about it. She doesn't care for what she sees as the pointless required customs of the royal family, so she only does them to the extent she has to. Instead, she's spent a lot of time studying and practicing flying (or gliding), showing a bit of her dual science and athleticism interests. She uses her position of authority to surreptitiously help her friends out. She can be sarcastic or supportive, depending on what the situation calls for. Plus, since Rainbow Dash
  3. Overall, I would say that the movie was decent. I didn't have particularly high expectations for it, but it turned out better than I thought, and I am interested enough to want to see the G5 show. The overall plot is fine, although I don't care for Sprout and his juvenile "mama's boy" behavior, and I found the way the movie handled him and Maretime Bay's fear of the other races to be a bit weird. The ending is also a little abrupt and clunky. I like some characters (such as Zipp) more than others, but many characters didn't get a whole lot of development, and I'm not sure how they'll be handle
  4. Happy birthday! I hope it was a good one! (By the way, I am in the process of writing a post about the G5 movie, there's just a lot to think about for an hour-and-a-half movie that's establishing a new series.)

      Thanks! Had a good dinner today, hence my off-linedness today. I'm looking forward to the review. I have some additional thoughts to post as well but I need to go through the whole movie review thread first, lol.

  5. Merry Birthiversary!

      Thanks! I'm not doing anything in particular today, but I did hang out with some of my family last weekend, and we celebrated my and my sister's birthdays (hers is two days before mine) with a cheesecake and a strawberry pie, so that was fun!

  6. A few random things I'll add: I must admit that I found the choppy/mismatched/desynced audio of the trailer to be distracting. When I first watched it, I stopped after the first 5 seconds, thinking that the particular upload I was watching had messed-up audio, but no, every copy of the trailer is like that. I also noticed at least a few animation oddities. At 0:25 in the trailer, Sunny and Izzy freeze in place looking at each other while everyone else panics and runs. Is that intentional, or is that an animation error? And at 0:57-0:59 in the trailer, Izzy is talking, but her profile

      Thanks! This year it's a dinner in situation for obvious reasons. But it was steak and it was great, so I can't complain, lol!

      Thanks! I went and visited with some of my family this past weekend, so that was fun. I haven't had too much going on since I got that research & development chemist job and moved last November. I was assigned to work out in production for six months (from March through August), which felt like a whole other world than R&D. But I was able to return to R&D lab work earlier this month, which I prefer to do and I find a lot less stressful.

  10. Yeah, I'd like to think that Twilight wasn't that bad, even at the beginning of the show, to the point of her being dismissive or a know-it-all right to Princess Celestia's face as she's trying to explain an important lesson. But I suppose that Luster Dawn's relationship to Princess Twilight may be different than Twilight's more deferential relationship to Princess Celestia, and as you point out, the writers may have been trying to replicate Twilight's generally more snarky/exasperated attitude in the early part of the show. Good catch, I had missed that. I like Pharynx, so that's nice
  11. I laughed at the mental image of Spike's teleporting a giant roc - or, say, the big frozen cloud from "Equestria Games" - somewhere else by breathing fire on it. But that mental image also calls to mind a potentially interesting thought experiment. From what I recall observing on the show, Spike's sending a scroll (or whatever else qualifies) by breathing fire on it doesn't necessarily occur instantaneously; it appears to be sent as it's burned, even if that takes a second or so. But on the receiving end, a cloud of smoke and magic forms until the whole scroll pops into existence instantaneous
  12. I certainly don't think I'm qualified or able to make any "objective" judgement of what the best episodes of all time of the show are, so I'll just briefly go through some of what I think are my favorite episodes of the show. As a disclaimer, I think I'm more liable to like particular scenes, moments, and aspects of episodes in the show, rather than liking entire episodes from start to finish, per se. I'll probably have at least some qualms, skepticism, and/or certain things that I don't particularly like about essentially every episode of the show; I feel like that's just how my brain works.
  13. All right, as I've done for most of the previous seasons, I've compiled what I think are my favorite episodes this season. It's weird to think that this is the last time I'll be doing this for this show. It's good to have a record of my taking stock of the episodes I most liked from each season, and to go back and see the previous episodes that I overall liked the most. So, for the final time, here are, not necessarily in rank order, what I believe are the five episodes I most liked in Season 9.
