The most important flash of our generation.
When I watched this, I wept, for I had not seen anything as beautiful as this. MY tears fell as I reached total understanding of the subtle quirks and nuances of human behavior, and I now saw the solution to all the tension regarding race and such. Truly a marvelous piece of work. I am at awe.
A work of art.
Anime, fat chicks, and surprised looking old men staring at asses.
What more can you ask for?
Flash analog of Killzone 2
This movie reminds me a lot about Killzone 2, not because of the plot, but because of the production value. I mean, it's just marvelously crafted, the animation is flawless and the effects are brilliant, but the soft spots in this movie lay not in the animation, but in the film itself.
Fore example, there's the art direction. I didn't like it too well. I mean, sure you captured everything perfectly, but how it was presented isn't for me. Like the robots, they're too 'generic' or their style isn't too interesting or cool or whatever. The design is good but it's not anything groundbreaking. The only real flaw in this are like, the eyes of the robots, you could've gone with something like LED readouts with words instead of eyes or something, which is impractical I know, but hey it looks cooler. And Tarboy himself wasn't anything too memorable. I mean it's a silhouette of a spikey haird kid, you could've done better. Everything else about the art was fantastic. Cityscapes looked like cityscapes, lasers and lights looked like lasers and lights, so on and so forth. The background sequences were also nicely done.
The music is also another weak spot in this fine movie. It started out like some children's musical to be ran during the holidays, which was just odd. The music together with the flash gave it a very 'storybook' feel, which I didn't like. In fact, I'd rather have had the music been intense techno or Daft Punk-like house, it'd have made the movie's atmosphere a lot more intriguing, because, frankly storybook-esque flashes are weak. The music is great, and it fit with the movie, but a different style would've fit too, and it would've made the movie be better on the audio aspect. The sound effects also, are decent enough. But it would've been cooler if there were lightsaber sound effects during the fighting in the dark scene. Also, lol at the guitars in the end credits.
The story is probably the weakest part of the whole affair. I never felt drawn to know what would've happened next, so if for some reason firefox closed while I was watching it, I wouldn't bother going back the next time I boot firefox. The characters were all bland, with the exception of the douches in the office water cooler, best characters of the movie, IMO. The grandpa guy also was a tad bit annoying at times, and the terms written into his dialogue like "fatcats" and whatnot really didn't go so well with me. And Tarboy was generic, he didn't even remind me of a personification of revenge, he was just there, and all he did was do a couple of fancy moves and then melt. I suggest you make the story something special for Tarboy II, hire a professional writer or something.
That's all I have to say. an okay movie. I don't see what all the fuss is about. But you're one of the best animators on this site, kudos to that.
The only thing you could've improved is that long loop that says "The End," you could've at least had a more interesting loop, :D. The music was great and the quotation from the song title worked well. The graphics were nice too, I enjoy that "scribblevision" look. And all of it meant a lot. Great job, hope to see more stuff like this from you.
Yeah, I thought I should of put more time into the end loop but still, it'd of given off the same effect so meh, no big loss. Glad you liked it. :)
An abstract masterpiece.
This submission is a perfect showcase of the sheer power of the human mind. It is a trip through an unpredictable world, where nothing is what it seems. If you pay attention to how detailed everything is, you will see the true, artistic value of this seemingly unartistic movie.
It's a true tale of the regular NG user and their struggle to find a suitable name, when I had a name change I got pretty gosh-darned pissed off too, all the names were taken. The picture quality could use some work though, I suggest you get a dude to stick a preloader on it or something.
Funny, Aesthetically pleasing.
This was very funny and the jokes literally made me fall out of my chair, laughing. The visuals were nicely done and were not merely filterrapes. The voices were also good, very varied and well executed. This flash has little to no room for improvent.
The music was a soothing background and the visuals were loads of fun. Brilliant.
Decent, Has a bit of racism in it.
The graphics aren't very decent for starters, could use a wee bit of improvement if you ask me. The animation was good and was aesthetically pleasing. The musical selections were decent too. Overall, this earns a 5/5 and a 8/10.
Submitted On My Birthday!
It's very nice that you mention current events in that flash.
But the image quality could usse some work.
