"We talk and mock the movies that we stream for you, ya bunch of crazy people."

An event held by the community of Ponibooru where, on Friday nights, the site would host a movie showing via Livestream with several active members of the community serving as commentators, who cracked jokes the whole way through. Sadly, the movie night seemingly died along with the site when Eco, the site owner, reached a Creator Breakdown. Some time after this though, a new Livestream was created for Derpibooru, the site which the booru community had migrated to, to continue yet another series of satirical movie nights, now recognized by Equestria Daily.

Regular commentators include Harlequin_Jester, Feral_Socks, daisyhead, Roboshi, Psychopomf, Starly, and formerly MaroonBunyip. Occasionally they will bring in a guest host for a month to help comment on the films. When the movie's over, or when the presentation falls flat, the team will do readings of bad fan fiction. Fair warning, at this point expect the stream to get very NSFW due to the subject of said fanfics. Currently, they're working their way through My Immortal.


The presentations are held at 7:30 P.M EST with the films showed are announced beforehand both on Equestria Daily's "Nightly Roundup" and on posters uploaded to the site drawn by the Livestream team themselves. Film Night has obtained it's own dedicated channel here, with a few of the older ones here.

The livestream also has a characters page.

Movies/Shows Streamed:

Tropes presented and invoked by the Ponibooru Movie Night

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Feral's Gay Lover from the audience.
  • Accent Upon The Wrong Syllable: Harlequin says "Uploaded by Aussie Luver" during the showing of Napoleon. Roboshi lampshades this when he tells him how to pronounce it right.
  • Artifact Title: With the shutdown of Ponibooru this is a given, and the reason the name hasn't been changed is because users are familiar to the original title.
  • Audience Participation: The Livestream team occasionally acknowledge comments and their actions. The team also will ask those watching what movies they'd like to see.
  • Awesome Aussie: MaroonBunyip, when he was around.
  • Black Comedy Rape: They frequently call out questionable moments as "imminent rape".
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Everyone, to a point.
    Harlequin_Jester: I wish to have a word with the audience. That word is "waffles". That is all.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Feral, when plans on a fanfic went wrong and again when he broke his sticker.
  • Crossover: The villain from Unico was a humanized Nightmare Moon. Harlequin also identified monsters from Cyborg 009 as snifit snakes.
  • Crowd Song: A number of the host began to sing, after constant begging from the audience, during the pre-show to John Carter of Mars.
  • Distracted by the Sexy: A number of the team weren't able to concentrate because of the audiences comments during one of the scenes during Krull.
  • Drinking Game: Harlequin suggested making one for every time there's an awkward group hug and also for irony.
  • Double Entendre:
    Harlequin_Jester: I need some wood to knock on.
    Feral_Socks: I've got some wood for you to knock on.
  • Everything Is Racist
  • Expy: Roland Emmerich is like Michael Bay before Michael Bay was around. And John Carter is Indiana Jones, because of his fedora. There's also a fairy in Ferngully that looks like the sultan from Aladdin.
  • Fan Nickname: They often do this for odd characters from their movies, such as when Harlequin_Jester dubbed the man from 2012 as "Doomsday Hippie".
  • Foreshadowing: Lampshaded by Feral in 2012.
  • The Ghost: Starly — The only thing we ever hear from her commentary is infrequent sighs and giggles.
    • Played Straight with ZePassionateOne, who's still a member of the team, but never says anything.
  • Guilty Pleasures: Quite a few of the hosts and viewers enjoyed Kung Pow long before it was ever streamed.
  • Impossibly Cool Weapon: Widely agreed that the Glaive from Krull was one of the best things about the film.
  • In-Joke: Filo and blowing your pod.
  • Mascot: Flicker, the film night OC/Avatar. She also likes to cosplay as a character from whatever movie is being streamed that week.
  • Meta Fiction: Feral did a reading of Carrot Top's fic about the literal Derpibooru community.
  • Mind Screw: eXistenZ to an almost insane degree. Nobody had any idea what the hell actually happened in that movie.
  • A Nazi by Any Other Name: The "Nazi Owls", aka Titos.
  • One Steve Limit: Feral_Socks had gotten confused when a member of the audience commented with a URL containing "feral" in it.
  • Rule of Sean Connery: Feral comments on how every movie would be better with Mr. Bean.
  • Sarcasm Mode: The poster for "Gremlins", with the titular miniature monsters in their feral state, had the caption "Aren't they cute?"
  • Seinfeldian Conversation: For about the first 20 minutes of the stream the team will talk about whatever strikes their fancy, sometimes it's trivia about the movie and sometimes it's not. In an attempt to alleviate this, plans have been set in motion for a Ponibooru podcast.
  • Sensory Abuse: Once when Deeper's alarm went off, the Wipeout soundtrack started blaring along with other weird ear-rape.
  • Sixth Ranger: The livestream team brings a guest commentator once a month.
  • Screwed by the Lawyers: MaroonBunyip's was taken down due to false copyright claims, so DeeperMadness took over.
  • Shoutout: Hummed the Harry Potter theme at the beginning of Legend of the Guardians.
  • Tempting Fate: They had a bunch during Bee Movie about Ray Liotta and Cows suing the humans that actually came true.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Starly was the only female on the commentary team. PonyCat has been brought on as a replacement.
  • Special Guest: Back in the day, Movie Night occasional invited fandom celebrities—such as popular artist Kloudmutt.
  • Stylistic Suck: The team choose terrible movies over good ones so they can crack jokes over how bad they are.
  • Those Wacky Nazis: How an odd fan fiction Harlequin_Jester was reading turned out when the movie plan failed.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Pointed out by the hosts during the stream of New Year's Evil, where two women could have avoided death if they had enough brain cells to rub together. Since this is a horror movie, they are pretty much dumb blondes.
  • Vulgar Humor: The commentators jokes are full of this.
  • A Worldwide Punomenon: The team love to make as many puns as they can about the movies they're watching, but especially in the steaming of Owls of Go'oole and Feral_Sock's infamous "Ghibli, son of Glóin".
