the cubism filter looks somewhat peculiar with this picture. The thumbnail looks like it hasn´t been edited yet it fits when you zoom the image. Will Amore stand all the edits you can possibly imagine with such style? >>2179>Worthy occasion indeed.
it was the anniversary. One cannot forget it even though for my country was in December. One cannot look past that event with indifference, nor the 8th anniversary although I don´t know what content I am posting for it (not sure if posting pictures of the Fausticorn)>There was some advertisement online for me, along with seeing stuff in stores,
I haven´t checked it out that much in the stores. I imagine that it went fine in terms of sales but as for the movie itself, two counted ads on TV and that was it. Really poor, you had to actually look for it and choose one of the two daily sessions (there were barely any sessions during the week before SW took over the cinema catalog.>but yeah, even here the ad campaign wasn't the biggest. The movie was a weird place between big and small that is rarely seen nowadays.
It´s big for the fandom, but underground and a tiny spot for the industry. Really weird dynamic, considering that it was made a la Disney style. >Though I almost find that fitting for a franchise and it's so many oddities surrounding it's and it's fandom's existence, oftentimes defined by it's own rules rather than the expectations around it.
I just decided to go for it whenever I saw positive reviews from the fans. Critics meant nothing to me because they didn´t even bother to review it properly like a normal film. Some despised it just because of the name and not because of cliches, character development, plotholes, animation... the usual stuff one critics should care about. Well, nothing of that appeared, most of them felt like a formal summary of the movie with a score or reviewers using it as the laughing stock (the business insider review called Fluttershy, Shuttefly, there it goes the effort behind the review and care).
The phenomenon in general and culture behind it, is odd as hell. MLP and the rules of other franchises go at two different speeds, almost independent to what happens. This franchise doesn´t live in a bubble, it created the bubble and has slept in it for a long time. That was applied for the movie and that shows...>The movie was truly an achievement.
financially, it brought some profit but we are not sure about the official budget yet, but for the fans, hell yeah. It was a prize for standing longer than expected like we are doing here
. Not even their own creators expected to reach this far and even have in their minds producing a film for the big screen. It doesn´t innovate at all but it compiles that Disney charm from the 80s, the writing from Twilight´s Kingdom, the redemption theme, the obsession from one character to achieve her objectives and the experience from Ingram at making musicals like in MMC, Lost Mark and Pinkie Pride.
It didn´t touch anything new but sometimes, one has to know that despite not watching a cutting edge episode nor outlandish material, the right to have some fun after 7 years should show and make us rest for a while.
It is though an experience, it feels like you have been in a lot of places and felt like a rollercoaster for 90 minutes. It´s definitely not boring and it accomplishes one thing: it makes you forget about the world you are living in and just enjoy the joy and emotions of the screen. It´s immersive and much more in the cinema. Whenever I ended it, I just get out with a slight different mind than the moment before watching it.
An achievement... a collective achievement that feels personal in various degrees for anyone who cares about MLP
