I am very much aware by this point that all those who regularly read my posts do not care about MLP whatsoever -Equestria Girls especially, so why am I still posting this stuff?
Why because I need to just let it out for a minute and this is faster than making a video, that's why!
So apparently the third film will be titled 'Equestria Girls; Friendship Games'.
Now I fully understand that at least a fifth of MLP:FiM's success is driven by it's smorgasbord of references (both obvious and subtle) and things like a pony comic cashing in on the success of 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' or an episode of MLP parodying 'Lord of the Rings' [incidentally, neither of these things have happened yet] would be welcome in my book.
But believe me when I say that the name of this movie alone just reeks of desperation. Its one thing to cash in on the success of 'The Hunger Games', but its another entirely when 1)- the film series that's doing the reference has a history of being notably disappointing and therefore will be nowhere near as intense as THG, and 2)- you're basically doing the Olympics [oh, did I forget to mention that? Apparently Canterlot-Worst-School-In-All-History-High is competing with another school in a multisports competion and by golly I just don't give a crap]
It also kind of gets on my nerves because 'Mockingjay Part-2' is being released TWO MONTHS after 'Friendship Games' is released, which basically means the dumb movie will be riding partially on the hype wave people will have for the second half of Mockingjay
Once again: the title screams 'DESPERATION'. But you wanna' know the worst part of that scenario? The idea the title alone first gave me was that EG3 would be a parody of THG. The problem with that? Imagine I took the Hunger Games; watered it down until their was almost not metaphorical and literal color in it; then dumped on it a @#$%ton of sparkly, Bratz colored sugar, icing, sprinkles, and a hint of that artificial fruit flavor that they put in Skittles.
Would you have any idea what to make of that? Or would you just say eww and give me a weird look?
One last thing I'm presently dreading is that the villains for this movie will likely be even LESS villainous than the Sirens from the last movie (they were such disappointments)
Thank you all for tolerating my bad mood. Good night!
