Discussion

Alca7raz and Nemesis decide, in a rare move, to continue their Equestria Girls discussion this week. Considering they felt they left a lot out last week, it makes sense. They spent most of last week harping on the movie, so they discussed what they liked about the movie this week. But that’s not all!

They also have a few talking points about what they would have done to improve the movie. Nemesis in particular has a long one. Not surprisingly, it is mostly about improving Sunset’s presentation. Do you agree with his improvements?
