If you thought Pinkie Apple Pie or even Too Many Pinkie Pies was jam-packed with Pinkie Pie fun, get ready for double the party ponies. James (Unabashedly Obsessed, Blink and You’ll Miss It, Kids on Bikes) returns only a few weeks after his last appearance to talk about the showdown between Pinkie and the mysterious party pony known only as Che ...…
 
There’s no good explanation why Macintosh hasn’t seen Jean-Claude Van Damme’s action-star debut. He’s seen his fair share of martial-arts epics, fighting movies and dumb action roles. But other than Street Fighter, there’s a major lack of JCVD in his repertoire. Meanwhile, Maud has watched this at least a dozen times, and now it’s time for her ...…
 
Discord's back in Ponyville, this time with a bad case of the blue flu. And there's only one way to solve...oh who are we kidding, it's Discord, and he's got a master plan to get rid of all the ponies so he can get Twilight to pay attention to him. His BFF Fluttershy is off going to watch the Breezies, so Discord's gotta bother somepony. Beside ...…
 
Maud has been counting the days to this moment - the moment when Macintosh finally watched the 1992 ice-rom-com The Cutting Edge. But we couldn't just keep the fun to ourselves, so we invited Erin from Unabashedly Obsessed and Kids on Bikes to join in! We talk about our first times watching figure skating, D.B. Sweeney's eerie foreshadowing of ...…
 
Dash is trying to get Ponyville qualified for the pegasus relay, but her team is...not the greatest. I mean, Fluttershy's adorable and kind but not the strongest flyer. And Bulk Biceps has...some wing shrinkage issues. So when Spitfire and Fleetfoot offer to let her join the Wonderbolts to fly for Cloudsdale it seems like the greatest thing eve ...…
 
The Natural is definitely a tropey, hacky movie that leans in to every single sports cliche it can. But an all-star cast anchored by the 47-year-old Adonis Robert Redford, the gorgeous cinematography from Caleb Deschanel, and a score that holds a very special place in Macintosh's sports heart make this movie a definite sports classic. We didn't ...…
 
Podcaster extraordinaire and Pinkie Pie fan club charter member James (Unabashedly Obsessed! Blink and You'll Miss It!) joins us for the most Pinkie Pie episode that ever did Pinkie Pie. The only thing that could make it better is...*checks notes*...oh, that's right, the entire Apple family going on a road trip to find out if Pinkie is related ...…
 
There's a minor mic problem this week that makes Macintosh sound like a magical wizard, but that won't stop the good vibes as we discuss The Damned United with special guest Kyle Turner from The M Word! Kyle is our guide to all things English football as we watch a so-so film of the amazing story of Brian Clough, the greatest manager England ne ...…
 
Rarity gets an episode this week, and that means Macintosh and Maud are gonna get INTO it. Maud thinks Rarity's "generosity" is fairly shallow and self-serving, while Macintosh sees a huge character change this episode. The Rarity scale is definitely in play as we visit Manehattan and get some of our favorite randoponies of the entire series. O ...…
 
1980's Raging Bull is a bona fide classic of cinema and a true artistic work. That is, according to Macintosh. Maud, on the other hand, doesn't think this story holds up and thinks the Academy-Award winning editing is actually trash. This might be the biggest gap we've ever had on this show. Get your boxing gloves on and get ready to throw down ...…
 
Halloween is still a few months away, but Macintosh and Maud are already celebrating with our scariest episode yet! Although, it wouldn't need to be so scary if everyone would just listen to Fluttershy in the first place. She does happen to know about animals, even ones that other ponies might think are vermin. I mean, Twilight Sparkle jumps on ...…
 
We won't mince words: Slap Shot is a criminally awful movie. Ostensibly, this film is a classic about one of our favorite sports - hockey. But the aggressively violent sexism and homophobia just cannot be reconciled even for the standards of 1977, let alone our current time. It's sad, because Paul Newman and Michael Ontkean are really acting th ...…
 
Everypony (or dragon) has a little superhero in them. Have you been eagerly awaiting a My Little Pony crossover with the Marvel/DC universe? No? Well at least you’ll see some recognizable faces as the Mane 6 and Spike get magically transported to one of Spike’s favorite comic books. We’re joined this week by pony guru and fellow podcaster Jon B ...…
 
Let's get ready to ARGUUUUUUUUE!!! We've had some contentious episodes on this show, but the debate around the Academy-Award winning documentary Icarus takes up almost the entire episode. Macintosh has some very strong opinions about how sports doping, Russia and the high-and-mighty tone of this film. Maud tries to retain the purity of the Olym ...…
 
WE'VE GOT HEAAAAAAARTS AS STRONG AS HORSES... This week Macintosh & Maud are cheering on the Cutie Mark Crusaders as they try to win the opening performance at the Equestria Games. Rainbow Dash is super excited for the Crusaders' performance...but not so excited to make Ms. Harshwhinny mad again. In the meantime, the Crusaders have to decide wh ...…
 
Macintosh & Maud debrief after going down the river and watch Francis Ford Coppola lose his damn mind. This week Macintosh & Maud watch Francis Ford Coppola almost lose everything, including his mind, in the making-of documentary Hearts of Darkness. Coppola created a masterpiece with Apocalypse Now, but the process was a nightmare in and of its ...…
 
In which Daring Do gains a sidekick - a super AWSEOME sidekick! The Daring Do book series is the hottest thing in print in Equestria. There's action, adventure, danger and thrills as Daring Do fights off bad guys and always gets the artifact she's looking for. It's weird that it's taken so long for A.K. Yearling, Daring Do's creator, to get her ...…
 
Competitive. Endurance. Tickling. Folks, we broke format this week and recorded VERY late at night. Why? Because David Farrier’s 2016 documentary Tickled is so weird, so amazing, we just couldn’t wait to talk about it. And yes, this is a movie about tickling. Tickling, and so, so much more... Then after the break, we talk about a breakout film ...…
 
We've got our first guests of the season to discuss some spoopy encounters in Celestia's old castle! This week we've got a jumbo-sized Pinkie Party with our guests Jen and Micah from I Never Saw That! We're treated to a very lightly spooky romp through an old, dusty castle, and learn about how to keep your cool under pressure. In between, thoug ...…
 
Sometimes the best stories come up in the middle of a documentary. This movie managed to find that story - and then completely ignore it. Our documentary this week is supposedly about Anna Wintour's day-to-day life as editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine. Instead, it's a basic-cable reality episode whose most important and compelling character isn ...…
 
THERE'S A TREE OF HARMONY??!?!! Remember when we said Nightmare Moon was back? Yeah, maybe we got a little carried away. Though to be fair, Twilight was taking some pony-huasca, so hallucinations...ahem, visions are par for the course. If you love Pony lore, look no further than this episode, chock full of scenes from 1000 years ago, before Lun ...…
 
In which we review the documentary with the most unreliable narrators of all time. We're jumping into our second documentary of our series, 2012's The Imposter. This twist-filled, complicated story of a French con man pulling the ultimate game, and the family that bizarrely embraces him, is one heck of a ride. We're not sure who to believe in t ...…
 
Did you use to wonder what friendship could be? WE DID, BECAUSE WE MISSED YOU, AND NOW WE'RE BACK!!! We've had our fun and taken a short stable rest, but it's time to get back into MY LITTLE PONY! And what a way to come back, as Twilight's getting ready to make her first big appearance as a full-on alicorn princess! Except something's going dow ...…
 
We embark on our series reviewing documentaries with the grandfather of the modern true crime epic. We're back with a brand new series on documentaries, starting with a review of Errol Morris' 1988 masterpiece The Thin Blue Line. We enjoy some sights of the rougher parts of Dallas County and explore the dark, twisted web of arrogance and ignora ...…
 
After a HUGE finale, it's time to wrap-up Season 3! We've been to the Crystal Empire, had a visit from Discord, and witnessed the transformation of Princess Twilight Sparkle. Now, it's time to revisit the season and wrap everything up! And what better way to wrap up than with our very special pony friend, James from Unabashedly Obsessed and Bli ...…
 
Are you ready for PRINCESSES??!?! People, it’s not a stretch to say that this is the most important episode we’ve covered thus far. It's a musical episode, Twilight is inventing new magic, there's a coronation - a whole lot of stuff gets packed in to what could have been the last-ever episode of this series. Who better to discuss this episode w ...…
 
Sometimes all it takes is a terrible producer and a stupid dream to ruin a franchise. Hello, again, and welcome to Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, we're wrapping up our journey through Connery-era Bond with a true abomination of a film. About the only good thing we can say about it is that at least Sean Connery tries in his perf ...…
 
Rainbow Dash has some SERIOUS problems with losing the Equestria Games as a filly. The Crystal Empire has been shortlisted for the Equestria Games, which means Cadence needs some help. Of course, when the Mane Six are involved, nothing is ever as simple as it seems. Rarity's dealing with Cadence's hair emergency while the rest are treating the ...…
 
All around, a pretty good episode, so long as you forget that Spike's the main character. You would think that a 13-episode season of a children’s animated show wouldn’t have filler episodes. You’d be wrong. Spike is fun and everything, but this whole episode revolves around the flimsiest premise this or any show has ever produced. Then again, ...…
 
Forget podcasting - this week we're having Bond Therapy. Hello, and welcome to another episode of Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, Macintosh and Maud confront the biggest anomaly in the Bond universe, and need some Bond therapy to determine their feelings. Is this a good movie? Is George Lazenby a good James Bond? Are we overthin ...…
 
Discord has returned to bring a little bit of chaos to our lives, and WE LOVE IT. We know, we know. Discord's an evil being hell-bent on causing chaos throughout Equestria so he can gain power. At least, that's what we've always been told. When it comes down to it, though, he's really a softie just like every other pony. Or rather, pony and/or ...…
 
If you're ever in the position to save a dragon's life...just don't. It's not worth the hassle. We love Spike and his adorable dragon face. He's super helpful and a loyal dragon assistant to everypony. But Spike's also a little boring if we have to hear his stories for too long. And this dragon code he has - it's WAY too intense for a baby drag ...…
 
The good news: it's a double feature! The bad news: we're dealing with the most boring and the most racist Bond movies ever made. CONTENT WARNING: Discussions of rape; racism and racial insensitivity; misogyny. You may want to skip this episode if any of the above is a problem. Hello, again, and welcome to Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! T ...…
 
YEE-HAW! We're saddlin' up and ridin' out to the Apple Family Reunion! Y'all, we don't normally spend half an episode talkin' in a Texas accent, but if the Apples are havin' a dang reunion, then we've just gotta have some good-ole-fashioned fun! We're foldin' up fritters, training for the seven-legged race and keepin' an eye out for that there ...…
 
Do you expect us to talk? Because we're going to...talk about Goldfinger, that is! Hello and welcome again to Macintosh & Maud Havent Seen What? This week, Macintosh & Maud witness the Bond movie by which all others are judged. The story, the design, the characters - all of it comes right back to this film. From the theme song, to the car, to t ...…
 
Rainbow Dash feels the need...the need for speed! On December 15, 2012, the world finally got a glimpse into an elite school established for the top one percent of Equestria’s Pegasus ponies. Its purpose was to teach the lost art of aerial equine acrobatics and to insure that the handful of ponies who graduated were the best in the world. They ...…
 
Bond is back and soooooo much better. Like at least 79 million dollars better. [CONTENT WARNING: SUICIDE 17:30-18:30] Hello and welcome again to Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, we're much more excited for Bond as he travels through Turkey and the heart of the Soviet empire. He's more confident, smoother with the ladies, and has ...…
 
Macintosh & Maud ain't afraid of no ghosts, but Scootaloo sure is... Here at Macintosh & Maud, camping is not high on our list of priorities. We enjoy a little nature now and then but we're mostly inside ponies. But we can understand why the Cutie Mark Crusaders, and especially Scootaloo, might think a camping trip would give them time to bond ...…
 
Name's Maud. Macintosh & Maud. And we're here to talk about the 1962 film debut of one James Bond. Hello again, and welcome to an exciting new series from Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week: The Walther PPK. Bond Girls. A vodka martini, shaken, not stirred. Macintosh & Maud are jumping straight in to James Bond's first screen appear ...…
 
Guess who's back / back again / Trixie's back / tell a friend... It's time for a good old-fashioned showdown as THE great and powerful Trixie returns to Ponyville, this time with some real magic to fight back with. Twilight's doing the best she can to stop Trixie, but she's still learning magic, and Trixie has figured out some expert-level magi ...…
 
You voted for it. So now you get to hear us complain about it. We think it's only fair. Hello and welcome again to Macintosh and Maud Haven’t Seen What?! This week, we try to decide what’s worse - how bad this movie is, or how bad Audrey Hepburn sings in it. Fred Astaire does his best to entertain, but nothing in the known universe can save a m ...…
 
Re-releasing last week's episode to fix iTunes feed issues. Happy listening! It's our FIRST EVER GUEST as James from Unabashedly Obsessed and Blink and You'll Miss It is here to help use tackle a coming-of-age classic. Hello, and welcome to part 2 of a special two-part Macintosh & Maud Haven’t Seen What?! Macintosh and Maud are joined by James ...…
 
We're re-releasing last week's episodes to fix iTunes problems. Happy listening! What do you get when you have stiff actors and a terrible director? Maybe the most iconic teen comedy ever made... Hello, and welcome to Part 1 of a very special week of Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, Maud has Macintosh catch up on an iconic and aw ...…
 
The Cutie Mark Crusaders are extra cute this episode, so why does Babs Seed's thick Brooklyn accent make it so bad? We're on record here at Macintosh & Maud of not being the greatest fans of the Cutie Mark Crusaders, especially their own dedicated episodes. But this episode isn't the Crusaders' fault - it's the insecure, passive-aggressive bull ...…
 
In another universe, these two movies would've been much better. But alas, we are not in that universe. Hello, and welcome to another episode of Macintosh & Maud Haven't Seen What?! This week, Macintosh and Maud are wearing their flannel and combat boots as they dive in to the early-90's grunge scene! If only the plot and characters and overall ...…
 
Despite Discord's efforts at chaos, we've still got the most Pink-a-riffic episode with our awesome guest, James! We knew something was up this week. A giant hailstorm while recording? Random sound issues during editing? It could only be Discord. He even left us a quick message to include on the podcast. Nevertheless, and despite the issues, we ...…
 
Just goes to show you: don’t plan a giant party unless you’re ready for EVERYPONY to show up... So there’s this whole thing where Twilight has to figure out how to save the Crystal Empire from certain doom at he hands of King Sombra. Blah blah blah, something something friendship. What’s FAR more concerning is how the Mane Six, who seem to be A ...…
 
Twilight’s on a mission. A mission from...Princess Celestia. There is no assignment more honored and beloved by Twilight than the homework Princess Celestia gives. And when Celestia says it’s going to be a test - well we all know how Twily is about those. But this isn’t any ordinary test, and the Mane Six are about to discover one of the most i ...…
 
It’s the most nervous Macintosh has ever been as we discuss one of his all-time favorite foreign films... Hello! and welcome to another episode of Macintosh and Maud Haven’t Seen What?! This week Macintosh transports Maud to 1960’s Hong Kong for a timeless film that redefines what a screen romance can be. Though he is on pins and needles hoping ...…
 
Time for us to send our own letters to Celestia as we talk about what we’ve learned from Season 2! We’ve gone through A LOT with our pony friends in Season 2 and now it’s time to share our thoughts. Like how the Cutie Mark Crusaders need less episodes. Or how bits and goofs made this season particularly great. And of course, we have to give our ...…
