Great, great job old friend!
I loved the saturated light effects and the dreamy feeling of it all.
Thank you for this pleasent entry.
Think again. Do something else.
I'm going to be hard on you. And I hope you'll respond. I really do.
This was weak. You've done much better. I didn't even think the frame to frame animation was good looking. You have to break new grounds now, my friend. You've already done the stick slayer thing and the last movie you did there was pretty cool. This just seems like more of that but less.
You have your own style and I think that's great. But you need to evolve more. You've already done the tweening hills with slick figures. The fighting black shadows don't impress anyone.
I really don't like movies that have no point what so ever. The only thing that happens here is some bombs and sword swinging. That's not a plot, and it sure as hell is not interesting to see.
I saw "Butts from Space" and that was GREAT! I really liked that one.
I read some of the other reviews before I saw this movie. They said it was too short. And I was annoyed by that because I know how much time it takes to make a decent animation. I'M THE CREATOR OF "DETECTIVE FROFROG", DAMN IT! But when I had seen your movie I cound't more than agree. It ended way too quickly and left me completely unsatisfied.
So summing up:
You've done already better. Tome to make even better things!
(and the title zoom was just horrible)
Do you do anything else?
I like the fact that you make your own music (so do I in Ytown Public). I liked the sound, part from the little kids voice in the beginning. The lines were a bit strange. The man thinks like he's in some sort of a video game, trying to beat the boss. "He has to have a weak point", people don't go around thinking that. I saw this movie three times in a row the day you submitted it. It is the first time I have seen a moive that many times (the same day). The story didn't really evolve at all, that's ok for this time - Just don't make the next episode another full fight episode. And now the grafics, they are very good and at some high points even marvelous. I'm going to start wwith some things that I didn't like. I don't like it when you use stills (of full characters) and motion tween them. My advice is to cut the full characters into different layers so you can slightly (I said SLIGHTLY) rotate or bend the arms and legs and head. If this is done well, you will get the impression of a fully animated animation. I use this techique in Ytown Public. I have many sets of arms and hand for every charater so they don't just rotate them like windmills. You know what I mean? I like the manga effects, the dust when the characters jump and slide and punch. Homour? Well, ok, I guess it is kinda funny when you watch it a couple of times. The first time I was just confused, thinking, what the hell is he doing and what's with the sound?! Bang, bang, bang! Work harder on the mouths - You're lazy if you only use one sort of mouth shape/movement. Did I say this was EXCELLENT?!
I just looked at Y Town. It's weird, but I like the style of it.
I thought about motion tweening the body parts, but it looks really dumb with the way the characters are designed - especially in the next episode. Thus, it's frame by frame for me for this series.
The story evolves a lot in the next episode. And yes, I am quite lazy.
This is NOT what I want to see from you!
I totally worship you in normal cases. Your series is one of the coolest on the web (even though I find it a bit too violent at times, think - Nut hammering - Ooh, that one hurts just I think about it ). The latest epsiode of MD was super wonderful. This however is boring old and YOU BEAT ME!!! And now you're way lower again. This is not because in a sore loser, I just want to tell you - KEEP UP YOUR GREATNESS, and don't waste you time on shit like this!
I'd you for you to review on of my movies!
