Good news Ladies and Germs, I've finally got my laptop back.
And I wanted to tell you that I've finally saw the first episode to the Rainbow Brite reboot and here's a review for it.
Even though I never grew up in the 80's (I was born in 1992), I have heard about Rainbow Brite before years back. But with the reboot coming out, fans were outraged, and boy you can really tell why. Some people say that Rainbow Brite is not cute anymore, and some people say that Rainbow Brite is now an airhead and not a hero anymore. Well, based on what I saw, I say that there is potential.
Well, before any of you guys start an angry mob and hang me, or burn me in public, or make me squeal, I'm about to say that, I don't see nothing wrong with the updated Rainbow Brite. Okay maybe there's a few problems I might address.
First off, Rainbow Brite in the new one, is not an airhead as many people seem to think. In fact, IMO, I say that she's is more of an energetic, manic little girl, who may have come off as a three way blend between Isabella from Phineas and Ferb, Mabel from Gravity Falls, and Pinkie Pie from My Little Pony Friendship is Magic, or to a lesser extent, Princess Unikitty from The LEGO Movie. So, even she still is a hero, but we do see some evidence of her losing her power, which is rare. So, yeah be on the lookout for the next one coming next week, because she is still a little serious when it comes to battling Stormy.
And there's also one really awesome advantage to it and that's making the Dark Princess (from the Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer movie) as the main villain, and what I can tell from the design, I say she looks like a pretty legitimate threat to Rainbow Brite there. And not only that, but Molly Ringwald (of Breakfast Club fame) is providing the voice of the Dark Princess, and another thing, Emily Osment described her as having an "Ursula Vibe" and we see her in shadows until the next episode. Okay that was really good right there. Okay, Molly Ringwald as the Dark Princess has got to be the fucking coolest thing ever conceived, just like how the Nostalgia Critic felt how Tim Curry is great as the villain from the Mighty Ducks animated series. Pretty frigging awesome.
The animation is zippy and energetic, even if it doesn't come close to the expressive Flash animation style that My Little Pony set the standard with, and there are some pretty funny moments involving Rainbow Brite acting all sugarhigh about her new best friend.
If there are problems to identify, it's probably the pacing of the story. The story moves so fast, it's like it doesn't want to take a break, sometimes you got to slow down a little for character development, like who are the Color Kids, they appear for two scenes, you didn't even take the chance to remember them.
Well with that aside, I dare say that Rainbow Brite is better now than she was back then. Sorry for sounding a little too harsh on you guys, but sometimes, it's necessary to update some things, but we can't always add or take away what's already perfect.
And that's all folks.
