Quite good

Being as I'm a brony myself, I went ahead and had a look at this documentary. Managed to endorse the whole thing and best off, it was never boring. I even saw some familiar faces in there! Would be good for the whole family to watch; just has some thematic material so it would've most likely gotten a PG-rating by the MPAA (as the movie's not been given such a rating).

Like the one Ashleigh Ball said: "As long as My Little Pony exists, there will be Bronies."

great moving film

This is a great documentary that fully explores the Brony phenomena in a hilarious way. Brent Hodge really knew what he was doing when he directed this film and being able to see the community through the eyes of unknown individuals and watching Ashleigh Ball explore this community was great to watch. I really hope they make another one with some of the rest of the cast of My Little Pony and visit some of the more prominent names in the brony community. I can easily see how it's won the best documentary award at various prominent film festivals. The scientific studies in the film were very well done and really showed how large the fandom is. They really were able to show how the fandom is really a collection of many different kinds of people who are in all walks of life. The music in the film was very well composed and very well done. The composition was amazing and flowed with the film like it was an organic part of the movie. I would highly recommend this film to anyone who would like to see how great these subcultures are before judging them.

Awful, Awful Documentary

The title of this film should have been, Ashleigh Ball: Attention Whore and other losers. It seems like the only people that they interviewed for the Bronies were socially inept, in other words, losers. They interviewed a "tough" mechanic and a man from the army in order to show how tough the fans are, however, both men seemed to ill-fit in a 'normal' crowd and both confessed, through their criticisms of what society expects from a boy, that they envy women and even wish they were women. Most of this I found mildly compelling. The interest ended there.

Most of the scenes in this film are of Ashleigh Ball, a voice actress who voices two of the Ponies in the My little Pony Cartoon. She bursts onto the scene, parading herself in various outfits and plugging her band. She talks about herself extensively and pretends that she thinks the Bronies are weirdos and that she thinks the interest in the show is bizarre, however, due to her poor acting ability, it is overwhelmingly obvious that this is her dream come true. She sees herself as the star of the show even tho all she does is provide the voice of two characters. She is not involved in the writing, or anything else to do with the production of the show, but she seems to feel like the most important person in the room whenever Bronies are mentioned and she reads about her characters and watches video and looks at fan made pictures for hours to feed her inner narcissism. If anything, this was a documentary about how entitled, connected and privileged Ashleigh Ball is.

I was interested to hear what the psychologists had to say until I realized that they were far from objective. Their own son is a Brony. Terrible work, No focus, hard to watch.
