Equestria Girls Re-Watch Heavy Mole No.479158
So we're pretty much all agreed that Equestria Girls is one of the worst things ever made.
Just look at some of the reviews…
"McCarthy and friends took a winning formula–a cartoon franchise based on an 80's toy line of saccharine pastel ponies, mixed with an alternate "high school" dimension (add in pointless love interest and bacon-haired bitch villain)–and somehow fucked it up. Way to go. One job, McCarthy!"
- The New York Times
"I went in with high expectations, given the usual high quality of animation and narrative integration I've come to know and love from this team. But then, here comes the backstabbing–Skeeter Valentine-ass character designs and plot constructions so flimsy it makes me want to come out of retirement."
- The Late Nelson Mandela
"And they thought my nuclear program was a threat to global welfare!"
- Former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
So there you have it. But alas, like any dark spot in a nation's history, it must seen and digested for the benefit of posterity. That's why this weekend we'll be showing it as part of
THE SUMMER PONY RE-WATCH SERIES
However, to help palliate the effect of this unlikely converging of girly interests and magic ponies, Juvenal (that's right, the Juvenal) and I will be offering commentary during the showing, which will take place on Sunday (probably around 3 PM EST). There will also be a chat, for others interested in contributing to the raillery; may our sallies of wit and cutting observations be like a dry bukkake in tribute to the fine franchise that was felled to make this film feasible!
