BRONIES: THE EXTREMELY UNEXPECTED ADULT FANS OF MY LITTLE PONY (2012)
As a mega-upbeat propaganda piece, B:TEUAFOMLP is a fun watch. It quickly introduces a few My Little Pony fans from different walks of life and different countries. One guy talks about how he was attacked at a gas station (in his small town) due to the MLP stickers on his car. Others talk about some of the MLP-based things they create (merch, a laser show, music). Another is younger and his father doesn't seem to approve of his son being a Brony. Another guy has Asperger's and MLP brings him out of his shell. They all travel to different Bronycons and the rest of the film is just them being happy. I enjoyed watching these people (and the other con attendees) having a good time, but by the end, the constant positivity started to get old. Then again, I'm a grumpy fuck.
B:TEUAFOMLP might be the happy happy joy joy version of reality, but it's still an entertaining watch. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give it a 5 then bump it up by 20% to a 6. Brohoof, motherfuckers!
