Meanwhile at Canterlot High

After days of dodging spoilers left and right, I dragged myself to the theater this morning to see the second Equestria Girls feature, Rainbow Rocks, half hoping it had something to do with Maud Pie, because rocks.

And I admit that I haven’t seen a sequel so much better than the original since The Wrath of Khan. Not that the original was bad, mind you; only that it seemed ultimately detached and bloodless, despite a suitably fierce fight scene. Rainbow Rocks, which envisions a war of all against all for the benefit of its villains, grabs you somewhere above the fetlock and won’t release you until the end.

My formal review was posted earlier in the day at a site that gets about a hundred times as many visitors. You may safely assume that it was favorable.
