Okay, I’m like super hyped for this movie. But they’re practically giving half of it away at this point. X_x
Not at all happy about Brad, being there, but at least he’s a little more of a relatable dork, rather than “Mr. Obnoxiously Perfect”. At least from what we can see here. Still wish he wasn’t present at all.
On to more positive things: OH GOD SHIMMER’S VOICE HNNNNNNNG
Pretty much, yeah, I want to movie to just come out already and stop throwing “trailers” which are literally just clips from the movie giving away most all of the plot.
I think 98% of the fan base that is willing to give the movie a chance want Brad out, most of all cause it’s against the very principal and wants that Faust had, and dumbs down the formula to be a typical teen targeted watered down feeling husk of the show.
Granted, this is a far more original story, so very likely it’ll be a better product than the original that was just a forced ploy to sell BRATZ dolls, which Hasbro has a right to, but the introduction of Flash “Brad” Sentry was bad enough, but now he is back as some love interest being obsessed and dorky over Twilight Dorkle. Which while cute, really feel it could be better off not included at all unless we see something like Flash getting back with Sunset.
I’m actually am kind of behind the idea of Flash and Sunset getting back together, in a more wholesome relationship. I find that infinitely more interesting than being the “mandatory male-interest” of the female lead, and it’s decidedly a much less harmful message.
I think Flash’s presence here can be good if they handle it correctly. There’s potential for a good character if they show him as more than just the guy with a crush on Twilight. I was rather ambivalent towards him in the original as he was pretty much the generic popular guy with not much to love or hate (besides the love interest issues), but here it seems like he’s actually getting some character and personality.
I just hope he moves beyond love interest-of-the-day as the problems with that have been very well explained by mister Ambris here.
Also really glad to see Sunset Shimmer is still around and yes HER VOICE IS AWESOME!
