Episode 99: MY LITTLE PONY - THE MOVIE (2017)
5 days ago
You're goddamn right two grown men in their 30's saw the newly released MY LITTLE PONY movie via Hasbro's production company ALLSPARK! You have no idea how much Jack was chomping at the bit to go see this and fall in love all over again with... oh, wait, sorry, read the notes wrong, that's Andrew, yes, Andrew was the one going for this one, and... Well, how is it?
You'll just have to listen to two grown men who saw this movie on a weeknight at the local cineplex with no one else in the theater to find out.. and no, it's not dirty quite like that (though if you stay till the end of the episode, there's a bit we've included to explain what the term "Clopper" means, via the now late Spill.com site). So join us, won't you, for our dissection into the art that goes into Twilight Sparkle and Applejack and all those other fruffru names and... yeah, My Little Pony. We made it to episode 99!
Clip from Spill excerpt taken from YouTube, as is the trailer for the film, and the 1980's commercial at the 41 minute SPOILER mark!
Rated 5 out of
The hosts of the Wages of Cinema have a great rapport with one another, and this comes through as they talk about new and classic movies. There's witty banter, serious analysis, and personal discussions on which films have meant the most to them - all while talking about the new movies they've seen in the past week (the two-minute movie mile has a wide variety, so if one movie doesn't grab you the next might), the 'List' segments (more in-depth stuff there), and then they have a main subject. My favorite part is their 'Required Reading', which they don't do all the time but is usually a solid bet for recommendations of quality movie books.
They're not Siskel & Ebert, but then who is?
