Wow. DVD release of Rainbow Rocks is missing a major chunk of the movie, from the garage scene all the way to the semi-finals. That includes two of the best songs, Shake Your Tail and Under Our Spell (the awesome one that goes through the tournament brackets.)

Just in case any other autists besides me bought the DVD, know that the missing footage can still be accessed through the chapter select. It just gets skipped when you select play movie.

Updating my own story no one cares about. It seems the first batch of Rainbow Rocks DVDs play chapters 6 and 5 in the wrong order. So if I had let chapter 6 finish, I would have seen the missing footage before moving to chapter 7. Anyone who has purchased a defective DVD may contact Shout! for a replacement. Also, starting the movie from chapter 1 using scene select is a viable work around.

You ever think there could be a chance that the current creators hate EG?

They were against it at first, but they're probably into it by now. They probably like having an awesome new mane six member to work with.

They seem to put effort in 2 to 3 of the songs and mostly focused on sunset simmer, Then left the rest of the writing towards fan service and reused old jokes.

Details time!

I really liked a lot of the songs. 10 is a huge undertaking, and not all are going to be memorable. I can name over half of them and really like them though: Shake Your Tail, Battle, Welcome to the Show, Shine Like Rainbows and Under Our Spell. That doesn't include the final battle song (once Sunset gets the mic) or Tricks Up My Sleeve, both of which I enjoy in the movie, but might not look up on Youtube any time. That leaves Awesome as I Want to Be and the other Rainboom song and whichever other one I've forgotten, so all in all, very quality.

Reusing old jokes? Always going to happen. It's a throwback to old memories. The one about 20% less awesome fit very well and made me smile. Other examples aren't coming to mind, but I do remember other throwbacks. I don't think they distracted from the movie.

The movie did indeed focus on Sunset Shimmer (and Twilight) but that's called leading with your best asset. A nice change from only ever focusing on Princess pone. And least we got someone new to outshine everypony. The two actually showed some good development and bonding over others expectations of them. I know that Sunset's villain-friend turn is the quickest in history, but lets put that aside. That's the first movies problem. Rainbow Rocks made excellent use of her in this new situation.

Regarding a few words on the others: Rainbow was almost an antagonist. She had the most scene time, but not for reasons I enjoyed. A further descend for her into near Diamond Tiara levels. Pinkie is still comic relief and unused for anything else. Rarity was barely used at all. These trends are problems that should be addressed, but they are characteristic of the show in general, not Rainbow Rocks. Fluttershy at least had some cute scenes and Applejack continues to be the ever perfect rock that grounds the ensemble.

Eh, Doesn't really feel that way to me. Although you can argue that the human universe is the same as the pony universe but with different spices. Thats the only explanation I can get from having a reason to reuse old jokes.

I actually have no negative opinion about sunset. What i'm disappointed in is how the other characters felt they we're just there to crack joke's about her past half the time and Dash just being a jerk. It kind of remind me of season 1. coincidence?

What I felt from the movie was an reincarnation of season 1 but instead of having everyone being friendly with the main character it switches it around and has the main character crave for to be close to people. Really all the EG characters act the same way as the mlp characters except for RD. RD flatout went lightning dust mode, but with bragging added too it.

3 of them seemed good the rest just felt bland to decent.
