You have the honor of showing Equestria their first movie made from our world. Everypony who is everypony will be at the premiere, including all your favorites and are very eager to see what it's like! Now the big question, what movie made by humans would you show to the ponies of Equestria?
Would you show them a beloved classic? A cut classic? Or a more modern one to show them how far our technology has come? (Gravity, Pacific Rim, etc.) Pick related is the start of one of our most iconic film series, so I would pick that.
Keep in mind, ponies are very emotional, so be careful which movie you choose.
I'd show them only the greatest work of film that we as a species have ever produced.
This is actually a very interesting question, and it isn't as simple as simply picking my favorite movie. As you mentioned "everypony who is anypony" will be there, so I have to take that into account. We want something with a reasonably wide appeal that won't horrify ponies with more delicate sensibilities. Ideally it would be something that could provoke a variety of emotions, to showcase a wider array of what we have to offer. Songs would be nice too, since that is a major part of pony culture.
That being said, I'm showing them Disney, and more specifically The Lion King. It doesn't rely on any knowledge of human behavior or activity, nor does it portray any species that are found in Equestria (with the exception of some zebras in the background a couple of times). The ponies can laugh at the jokes, cry when Simba's dad dies, and thrill at the power struggle lifted directly from Hamlet. Nobody will be offended or horrified. An enjoyable time to be had by all.
I don't imagine I'd be able to watch Crank with ponies any time soon.
I would show them whole back to the future trilogy.
I would say the second one, but it doesn't really make sense if you don't watch the first one and it leaves you hanging hard if you don't watch the last one too.
>You'll never hear the ponies clap and cheer in excitement when they see Bond for the first time.
This movie. It will move them beyond words and well into tears, helping to show how humans manage to cope with life on Earth despite it being so shitty compared to Equestria and perhaps garner their respect for our mental and emotional fortitude. Because at the end of the day, we are all connected. Every little thing we do may have far reaching consequences that can manifest in the most seemingly unlikely places long after we die. Whether those consequences are good or bad is not important. Only that it mattered at all in the grand scheme of things is what is important.
Robin Williams fanboy coming through
for some reason, i got the feeling that this would terrify them
and this one
"Mama always said..."
I have a feeling a lot of these movies would need to be prefaced with a brief explanation of certain human world things. Like Iron Giant needs a little background explained (Cold War, robots aren't real, etc).
Those movies are too scary for little ponies.
