Storyline

At Dream Castle, the Little Ponies are preparing a festival to celebrate the first day of Spring. From the Volcano of Gloom, the evil witch Hydia watches the event via her cauldron and, disgusted by the frivolity, tells her daughters that they must ruin it. Hydia's daughters, Draggle and Reeka, are inexperienced at causing mischief and fail utterly at ruining the festival. They return to the Volcano of Gloom in disgrace, where Witch Hydia presents a better plan - they'll make Smooze. The sisters collect a series of disgusting ingredients, but neglect to obtain the Phlume, the prospect of which terrifies them. The spell seems to work regardless, creating a pool of sentient purple lava that gleefully buries Ponyland. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Not as bad as I thought it would be, kids should enjoy it.
27 January 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I'd first like to point out that if it wasn't for the newest My Little Pony show, I wouldn't have any interest in My Little Pony at all. But, since I was bored, I decided to watch the original theatrical movie on Youtube, and, while it wasn't a great movie, it wasn't that bad either.

Things I liked: -The animation was pretty good, especially compared to the later series My Little Pony N Friends. There were some rather obvious animation errors, but overall everything moved smoothly, and there was quite a bit of movement.

-I also really liked the backgrounds. They were very detailed, and some parts just looked gorgeous.

-I thought the musical score was very whimsical.

-The story was easy to follow, and it moved along at a decent pace.

-There were a few suspenseful moments. Adults should find these mildly amusing, children will probably find them exciting.

Things I disliked: -The characters had no interesting personalities. A lot of them just seemed to be filler, the rest only had one personality trait to go on.

-The villain was weak. She had no motivation, and she just wasn't threatening enough.

-The songs were really bad. They were mostly forgettable, and they were all sung my horrible singers. I'd understand if one of them was sung badly for comedic effect, they were ALL sung badly. It's like they couldn't afford any professional singers.

-The humor was really mostly weak. I laughed at a few lines, but the slapstick was mostly lame.

I'd recommend this to parents who were fans of eighties My Little Pony if they want to introduce the franchise to their kids. But if you want an animated masterpiece you and your children will both love, I'd suggest something from Disney.
