I haven't been to Newgrounds in a few months... and this is what gets on front page now? Pretty shocked.
Bad pacing, unjustified lack of a unifying theme/style, weak humor, and a tired jab at Avatar. My son I am disappoint.
n the first minute I found myself wondering if this wasn't an elaborate fan flick someone had somehow uploaded from your account. The animation towards the beginning felt very rushed and misproportioned - nothing like the fantastic work in waterlollies - and the narration made the whole thing feel like an episode of Planet Earth or Discovery channel or something like that.
In fact, the lack of speech or dialogue is what I always loved about brackenwood movies; they felt more legendary or universal somehow. Like parables. Now it feels exploited somehow.
Still like the fantastic settings though. Hope your old, wonderful style of storytelling makes a comeback. Cheers.
Finally a good stick fighting movie!
All the others are riddled with generic over-the-top combos, DBZ cliches, and a general lack of creativity. This is a nice change from that and the effort put in shows. The evolution of each of the characters was incredibly unique too. Way cool. Make more! :)
Liked how it could almost work both ways.
Very funny animation, especially the anime parody, and all of it is very professionally rendered. The only thing I might criticize on a technical level were the voice overs, which I personally thought could've been a little more emphatic.
Content-wise, I think this is the first political commentary I've seen that draws attention to an issue, but targets both sides and doesn't feel inflammatory. The captain's over-confident, preachy attitude jabs at the lower-class, right-wing tendency to over-inflate patriotism, while what he actually says draws attention to the fact that America doesn't really know what it is because so many different cultures are coexisting in the same country. Good ideas there.
Thanks for making an interesting flash! :)
Those dangling little santa legs...
...get me every time I watch it. 8D Great work.
Some reviewers seem to think the idea's unoriginal, but Adam's unique (and clever ^_^) presentation is point of the animation. Besides, it's hard to parody something so well-known and massively parodied as Christmas.
Oh well. Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Joyous Kwanza, Super Duper Boxing Day, and etc.
My sister has cancer... >:-( ... ZOMBIE CANCER!!!! YEAH! *high five*
Not only did it make me lol my face off, but I really want to play the game and experience all the awesome centrality. And your voice is hilarious. :3
Oh it was alright...
Your sprite animation is good, but the whole premise of your movie is pretty overplayed, which didn't really leave room for any original jokes. I sort of feel like I've watched this movie before... even though I haven't. Know what I mean?
Other wise it was good though. Keep making movies!
Oh man. Pablo Francisco's funniest sketch for sure. The animation fit perfectly too! Great parody man.
The visuals were fairly good, but too much of it was 2D-bound, if that makes sense. The rotoscoped parts in the smoke were really cool though and looked great.
It's good for what it is, but it's just another random break-into-the-place-shooting-everyth ing-graaaahhhh movie... I personally don't find it too interesting. But hey. You're in the top 50 so hats off to you.
It looks like you put alot of work into it! Keep it up. Can't wait for more. :-)
