Anticorns: A RebirthAnticorns: A Rebirth
Transforming Twilight Sparkle into an alicorn left many, many fans of MLP: FiM bitter and heart-broken. It left many angry. It gave rise to a great divide, wherein two camps rose to great prominence in the Brony Community: the Pro-Twilicorn Camp and the Anti-Twilicorn Camp. Chief among the latter is The Anticorn Group. Passionate and hurt, they fought against the company they felt so betrayed by and against the members of the other camp. They destroyed their image, mainly being seen as crazy fools who were too obsessed about a cartoon about horsies; a force for chaos instead of a force for order.
Obsession and frustration are the key problems with it. Many anti-twilicorns merely want a safe-haven where they can be free from persecution. They wish for a haven where they do not have to be alone in their dissatisfaction with FiM. The Anticorn Group seems like that sort of haven at first, and is at the lower levels. It is the upper echelon that has gorged too heartily
Ideas Are Magic: A Sister Series to FiMIdeas Are Magic: A Sister Series to FiM
It has been many months since I've written anything like this. I say it's been far too long. Though I love MLP:FiM, I've given up on it ever achieving the writing quality and soul of its first season ever again. I wish, then, to focus on one of the aspects of a proposal made back when BronyUnderground was still young: a sister series starring The Great and Powerful Trixie.
A decent number of the people I've talked to are opposed to the idea of a show following Trixie. It is quite understandable, given the perceived nature of the character and the very popular demand to see a series based on Celestia and Luna. Understandable as it may be, a Royal Sisters series can ultimately have no suspense because the audience knows that they will have made it out of every situation safely and soundly, that they may appear in FiM later; the audience knows that everything will work out. As interesting as it would be to see the princesses in the past, such a seri
Criticism is Magic Special: Equestria GirlsCriticism is Magic: Equestria Girls
It's been a good long while hasn't it, my dear friends? It's been far too long. Now I'm back. I gave Equestria Girls a chance, I did. Just like I gave Magical Mystery Cure a chance. Now you will see what Gorshmidt has to say about Equestria Girls. How does the first fourth-generation pony movie hold up? Read on, friends.
Do be aware that there will be SPOILERS. I don't usually put spoiler warnings in my reviews but, in this case, I deem it necessary. This is a new release, after all.
Visuals: Absolutely stunning! If this movie got anything right it was the visual element. Everyone, Spike especially, animates extremely fluidly. The character designs are fair. One can tell which character is which. They do not particularly stand out, but they are quite acceptable. Sunset Shimmer's design works especially well in the human world, where the color balance between her outfit and body makes her much easier on the eyes. Her otherwise intense body colors
Criticism is Magic: MMMotFECriticism is Magic: MMMystery on the Friendship Express
Welcome back to Criticism is Magic! Today we'll be looking at another episode that I like. Get ready for treachery, betrayal, deceit, and rash judgment, everyone, because it's time to review "MMMystery on the Friendship Express!"
Visuals: As usual, the visuals are top-notch. The expressions of the characters were very... expressive. Some were over-the-top and accomplished what they were intended to do very proficiently. Many of the visuals were highly creative.
Music and Sound: While the music was certainly present, it was hardly noticeable outside of the homages to other popular movies. The sound effects, however, were fantastic, being what one has come to expect from the show.
Voices: The voices were particularly excellent in this episode. Everyone gives a solid performance. Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, Pinkie Pie, Mulia Mild, and Gustave all stood out as having a better performance than the others. Their voices, some of them novel
Criticism is Magic: A Canterlot WeddingCriticism is Magic: A Canterlot Wedding
It's been a while, my dear watchers, since I last did a “My Little Problems: Criticism is Magic” piece. I have learned much since then. I now present to you a review of one of my favorite episodes. Welcome to “Criticism is Magic: A Canterlot Wedding.”
Visuals: The visuals are, perhaps, some of the best in the series, trumped only by that of Season Three's visuals. The animation is fluid; very fluid, the scenes, especially the action scenes, are incredible, being fast-paced and effective in conveying what is happening, and the visual effects are gorgeous. The character designs are wonderfully creative, barring, perhaps, Cadence's. Her design is more akin to that of a toy's.
Music and Sound: The music is quite effective at setting the tone, and, unlike Season Three's cesspool of musical massacre known as “Magical Mystery Cure,” the songs are actually enjoyable, being creative, or overly-appropriate for the s
Gorshmidt's Top 10 Ponies ListGorshmidt's Top 10 Ponies List
As you may have guessed, I'm quite fond of “My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.” Today I'm going to treat you with telling you who my favorite characters are and why inasmuch as is practical. Some of you may be surprised, some of you may roll your eyes, some of you may find my choices boring. Of course, I'm going to try to stick to characters with meaningful appearances, not just my favorite fanon-developed characters.
Well then; you didn't click on this thing to read the ramblings of a reviewer, you came to know his favorite ponies! Here we go!
Number 10: Derpy Hooves
Is Gorshmidt contradicting himself? Maybe... Her lines in “The Last Roundup” caused quite the stir so one could call that appearance meaningful. She's not very developed but we can surmise that she's clumsy, based on what we've seen. Her mannerisms also suggest a level of innocence not possessed by the other ponies. Those and the fact that I think she's really
