    Return of Valhalla

    Okay, I need to ramble a bit. Yesterday I was all nostalgic about Peter Madsen's works - more specifically his Danish comic series “Valhalla” that I grew up on. My Dad always been an enthusiast about our heritage as Danes, in particular the old stories and Myths about the old Nordic gods. And one faved medium to teach us these stories were through those comics, as the cartoonist behind them

MLP G5 Movie - A quick review · 7:53am September 25th

So

It has begun.

Ending an era fully now we move on to the next.

And ya know what? Is a good movie. Very pretty, good details, cute characters, got some good laughs out of me and had me intrigued. Only one song really stood out to me, but none of them were bad.

My only complaint is that it only works for me as a full on reboot. As the only attempts to make it a sequel is all just bait to keep the old fans invested, while it really doesn’t fit in with everything else.

Lemme explain

It sorta backfires by showing a world so far more empty, because G4 ended with an explored Equestria and a bunch of different creatures integrated among ponies. And now they are all gone, not even a mention, and no explanation what happened to segregate the tribes all over again.

See? Calling it a sequel and rely on known names and faces to sell, only creates plot holes and inconsistencies.

While as a reboot.. that’s fine. It’s a new clean slate to build something entirely new from. Claiming a relation to G4 beyond rebuilding based on ideas from it, kinda ruins the clean slate because it requires questions answered, questions they never meant to raise.

Of course the upcoming G5 series probably gonna have some answers to give, but that should be to explore their own world, not explain what changed from the old. So hopefully the whole “sequel” thing was just bait for the movie, and won’t come up again in the series beyond winks and subtle references for fun. Because they clearly got their own lore going here, different from G4.

So, yeah. Good movie. It needs its own hype, as I get a bit worked up whenever it claims to be a sequel. It deserves to be viewed as its own thing, anything else soils it.

Lovable characters, I look forward to see what we get going with the series. Of course it won’t match movie quality, cuz budget, so I’m interested to see what direction it goes for its visuals in the end.

So yeah, just my overall thoughts here. How I feel about the movie after first viewing.

Thanks for reading.
