I haven't watched the 2017 movie too. I actually wanted to go to the theater, but I ain't got no irl friend.
Were I to go alone, ME, a grown ass brown-asian muslim man sporting khalabeeb-looking beard walking up to the ticket scanner guy be like "My Little Pony." No. Hell fucking no. That's not counting walking into the theater filled with kids and their parents. Nah fam I ain't risking that shit.
So I pirated it. But I admit I never finished it either. The lack of Starlight Glimmer kinda got me less excited.
Absolute same reprocussions from me as well mate! Uhh… but i'm kinda of a rare case, it goes like this: I was absolutely hyped and fangasming on the 2017 movie as far back as late 2016 and when it finally premiered thru cinema, I was eagerly wanna see it through the cinemas when I realized the reality of the awkwardness of the audience as a grown male watching girly cartoons in public, which would probably stain my social standhood through the eyes of my countrymen friends here.
Then there's those instance that I would like to watch it illegally through some movie streaming sites but, my internet connection back then was shit so I just had to watch clips separately on YouTube. Then there comes the worst part, most recently as well… I had the rightmost opportunity to watch it in full HD through this phone on Netflix last year but… FUCK! I didn't watch it in absolute out of touchness because I was deprived of joy and too melancholious about G4 ending back then for me to watch it; in which I let that tumultuous opportunity slip away, not to mention it happened weeks before corona made life's matter worse.
Now that G5 is coming, and i havent seen the previous movie, this feels like a spit in the face for being a bloody slob.
