My Little Pony: Equestria Girls - Rainbow Rocks is the most amazing thing ever happened to Equestria Girls and Friendship is magic in general! 

 

I love this movie. It's just too beautiful!

The story, the villains, the songs, reformed Sunny, Twilie coming to human world again - IT'S SO GOOD!

Wonderful, wonderful, ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL movie! It is so great that the excesses of its magic make me forgive all the faults of the first one. The question "Did Sunset Shimmer get better?" was initially the driving force, which made me watch it. The answer was beyond satisfying in the very best meaning of those words. She now shares the very special place in my heart along with Twilie. It was extra happy seeing Twilie coming to the human world again, especially after statement that she wouldn't coming back. The songs range from GREAT to THE BEST! The story and villains are very good.

 

I mean, I trotting love this overly beautiful movie! The best of the two, hands down. But now I am grateful to the first movie as well.

I've watched this movie five times. I don't watch a whole lot of things that often, but I just love this movie so much. The songs are among the show's best, Sunset Shimmer's character arc is delightful, Twilight Sparkle's arc is just as good, and the humour is top-notch. Taken as a My Little Pony  episode, this is easily one of my favourites - such a massive improvement over the first movie, although that was proven much earlier with those shorts which preceded it. The Dazzlings are thoroughly enjoyable, if not overwhelmingly deep, villains, Sunset is sympathetic and likable, Twilight is much more interesting than she had been in most of season 4, and there's a whole ton of charm and, surprisingly, polish. It's still built on a deeply questionable foundation, but this film keeps its plot basic in order to provide room for character growth and fun interactions, and that's where this show excels. That slumber party scene is something I had wanted the show to do for ages, and that it took this external movie, where Twilight and the mane six aren't even as close, to make it happen... is kinda disappointing, but wow that scene is great. SunLight forever! I have the whole soundtrack on my phone. It's just so good!

Everything I liked about Rainbow Rocks was the ending scene.  :smug:

In my opinion Rainbow Rocks is the best of the Equestria Girls series.

Sixth time. Some of the sparkle has worn off. Still the best one, even if it doesn't quite have the fascinating aspects of the third. 

A few things I noticed this time around:

  1. The entire movie takes place at a fundraiser. I actually never even realized that. 
  2. All the depth in Sunset and Twilight kept me from considering that the plot here is honestly rather simple. It's mostly for the best, though, because those two arcs and the music totally carry it. 
  3. Other five can get slightly annoying every now and then, but the movie never dwells much on it, and it kinda makes sense - they are teenagers, after all, so they're gonna have these moments of immaturity and petty disagreements. Kinda enjoy how all this teen nonsense is given context by the Dazzlings and their powers. 
  4. Flash Sentry stuff drags it down a little, honestly, but it's kinda like they reintroduced the romantic stuff from movie 1 just to break it. Can't complain about that. 

Love it. Not quite as delightful for me as a comfort food episode like "Rarity Investigates!," but this movie had no business being this good. Biggest question for me is whether the kitchen scene or the climax is the best part of the movie. They're both so good!

Score:

Entertainment: 9/10

Characters: 9/10

Themes: 9/10

Story: 8/10

Overall: 88/100

I'm so curious as to what happened to the dazzlings after they were defeated and why didn't Twilight take them back to Equestria?

Applejack asked another good question: what were they doing between the time they first got to Earth and the time they showed up in the movies?

I thought this was a pretty nice film. I still prefer FIM by far, but this was better than the first movie. Thanks to the "battle of the bands" theme, the various songs were tied to the plot better than in the first one, where I sometimes felt the characters were singing for no reason (quite common in musicals, to be honest). Speaking of the songs, I liked Trixie's song the best, while Snips and Snails' rap was funny in its awfulness.

I liked Sunset Shimmer, they managed to make her a pleasant and sympathetic character after the events of the first movie. I'm glad they didn't have her joining forces with the Dazzlings, which I thought would happen for a while (and which would have been too predictable). It was also nice to see many of the side characters in human form. I guess they could have shown more of the ponies, as their appearance was fairly brief this time.

As with the first movie, I wouldn't consider the film a masterpiece or on par with the series, but it was definitely a nice way to spend an hour. :)

my real question is will they bring the dazzlings back? i really hope they will. i love the sirens so much that i actually want them to stay in the show forever and replace mane 7.

I loved this Film ! Its not one of the best i ever watched in general, but i dont know how someone could make a better Equestria Girls Movie. This time they centered everything about the Songs, which was one of the things i liked about the first Movie, only that its now a Music Competition, which makes room for even more Songs. And the Songs were great, specially the ones from the Sirens. I enjoyed the Villains ( even though i hate the comic relief character and the jokes that were caused because of her ) and i enjoyed the humor, like Maud Pie having an appearance for example. Also i liked how Trixie had a bigger role this time, since she is also a reformed villain kinda. The Movie felt bigger than the last one and i also like it, that they are the Main 7 now.

Not sure what else to say, it was great ! Also nice end credits scene, i didnt expected that.

Out of the the Equestria Girls stuff, this is still my favorite. It improved on everything the first one did wrong, and made Sunset out to be more than just a one note character. The scene in the kitchen is one of my favorite scenes. The Dazzlings were good villains, the songs are some of the best out of the entire series, as well one hell of a fantastic climax. The movie is just plain fun. Not to crap on Friendship Games or Legend Of Everfree or anything, as I think they're good movies too, I just think this one had a better combination of everything.  This movie just leaves me with a good feeling every time I finish it.

This is my favourite EG movie.

The songs in it are some of my favourites and I really liked them.

I liked the plot a lot, especially Sunset Shimmer's development.

Oh man, I'm not lying when I say that I love this film. Everything just feels right to me. The characters, the songs - especially Let's have a battle and Welcome to the show, are all brilliant.

To be honest, wasn't big on Sunset Shimmer in the first film, but she had some pretty good development here and is now probably my favourite character. I can relate to her in so many ways and I was honestly proud when she ponied-up for the first time and redeemed herself for her past mistakes. The Dazzlings also made for good villains, even though I did feel that they were underutilized. Adagio, Aria and Sonata are quite interesting characters and it would be nice to see them again at some point - Aside from a cameo. The humour was pretty good, but I pretty much laugh at anything, so take that as you will. The songs...they really went all out here. I loved pretty much every track that was in the film. While The Cafeteria song will always be my favourite, these are certainly a joy to listen to.

As you can tell...I really enjoyed this. An hour well spent, I'd say.

This had much better storyline than the first movie. I still think they can improve more though.

What really made this film shine are the songs. The siren's songs are wonderful, and the Rainbow Rock's second to last music - the one where Sunset Shimmer sang for the first time - was also really good. :-P

I can definitely see why this film is considered to be the best by far of the EQG movies. The soundtrack alone I would probably consider the best of all EQG films so far, the villains were interesting in a quirky way, and on a personal note, reformed Sunset brought a smile to my face (the constant references to her past actions by the main cast were hilarious haha).

My favorite EG movie so far. All the characters shined here, sunset was very likeable here and even trixie got her moments. The sirens were really entartaining and by far my favorite EG antagonists, they had chemistry within the group and their songs were amazing! Under our spell is one, if not my favorite song in the whole franchise and they did not reformed either.  

The songs were consistently good here and the story was engaging and the conclusion was satisfying. It was not perfect, like twilight felt kind of meek to me here but I am just nitpicking, I really enjoy watching it. 9/10
