Effort was there.. but it just.. lacked
The style of animation has potential, its simplistic and clear. There were a few issues with clarity of sound, but I suppose thats why you stuck in subtitles. Also, spellcheck. For a start, its 'Hebrew'. Not a 'U' in sight.
Secondly, excessive racism dosn't automatically make something funny, nor does cliché stereotyping. Work a little bit more on the script, and don't try to be funny simply by picking on ethnic groups, or it turns into 'big mommas house 2', which as we all know, can't be a good thing.
The "Hebru" was Intentional. Thats his name, Man!
Great. We finally fucking get the olympics, and then the world ends.
Also, awesome movie. You've managed to make me almost completely paranoid.
- A concerned brit.
I love you.
I'm a huge fan of this game, and i've closeley followed all the series. Its amazing how much life you can put into a little black and white game just using flash.
I also have you to thank you for my sudden burst of downloads...
And to think, this whole series wouldn't have happened if I hadn't come across "Super Mario Land Mega Mix" in the audio portal that fateful day. Khuskan, you do not know you much I've appreciated you musical talents throughout this series. I can honestly say, you were my primary motivator in the production stages of all of these SML's. I'd sit back and listen to your tunes and close my eyes. Instantly, I would begin to conjure images and concepts for my SML's, I couldn't wait to publish them with Flash. As I've said before, I am most pleased that you are receiving bursts of traffic to your songs - I'm hoping to at least help make that SML Mega Mix song a platinum album for ya. Just remember, that this series just wouldn't be the same without your music and remixes. Keep makin' 'em!
You've got the skill. The graphics and animation were smooth, stylish and well made the voice acting was superb, apart from santa, who was too quiet to make out, and the use of music was excelent and varied, but it just lacked the comedy. The humor seemed extremely dry to me. It lingedered on that 'logic' gag too long, and that itself was a cliché. It seems that you've suddenly learnt how to use flash from proffesionals, and threw together the quickest storyline you could come up with as an excuse to post.
For example, the whole movie is based on the premise of Ken Kutaragi being killed, but what was the point? His character didnt develop at all, he didnt even have a line and he was on screen for less than a second. The fact you killed of a character which virtualy didnt exist in the first place made it dull, and dosn't leave the viewers to make up their own conclusions, then see if they were right.
Not everyone knows who Ken Kutaragi is, so the development was needed.
Anyway, keep at it, you've got talent there.
Thanks for actually giving crits. Personally, I find the voice actors to be the single best part of the entire movie.
Now about the dry humour - I like to use it. Just a preference, I think in many situations it fits a story better than soakling, wet humour. (See what I did there? Hahahahahaha....ehhh)
About the Kutaragi thing - I have a feeling you're right. Often when writing, I forget about the fact that people don't have the same frame of reference as I, which leads to allusions that few get. In this case, I assumed that everyone knows Kenny as the wacky party animal that he is - because I read about his escapades every day in various news sources. He was already developed in my head – which lead to him being underdeveloped in the movie.
And I thank YOU for using my music in an awesome flash movie ;)
Good on you, and merry Christmas :D
My only regret is that i didn't get to use the whole mp3 to make this animationl. If only i had more ideas...
Shame shame... Thanks for the feedack and i'm glad that you found my work somewhat entertaining!
Holy crap, I thought you were dead.
Well not actually dead mind, just in the online sense. I didn't think i'd see one more awesomely informed, amazingly composed flash out by the great NC and the artists formally known as Lemon Demon ever again, but this has finally proved me wrong.
It's all true. All horribly true. And the website is hosted on a shit-assed slow server too. It isn't a concentrated event either, this happens all over the place and nobody does anything about it.
I'm looking foward to when he steals from a commercial company and gets his arse sued off.
Just a note on the song, stick the treble equaliser up and turn the track volume up on the vocals, they're a little drowned out with the strong bass element behind the song, although the singing is top notch.
Well... that freaked me out. It sort of reminded me of the stereotypical one-layer FBF shorts where completely random stuff happens, but this was mostly tweened, reflected good ammounts of flash knowledge and I got a small giggle out of it. It would have been nice to have had it a bit longer, you obviously spent a lot of time on those characters and drawings, and it seems a shame just to have them up for a few seconds.
ta for the seven
Ok, this HAS been done several times before, twice before in flash, but this was still a very funny remake. You shouldn't have cut the turtle bit out, because thats half the comedy right there.
Anyway, nice little short.
YOU = FAIL AT MUSIC.
Loading screen: Stave has FIVE not six lines. The treble clef was buggered too...
but this was amazing. Despite the fact its a kind of cliche idea... after 'we will rock you' and all. Such a great musical. Amazingly well animated, even though the characters seemed to cosist of nother but stillohettes, it looked quite awesome, and you really gave it the feel of how it would look if it was actually in the theater. When the smoke comes out at the end, it underlaps the frame, which looks sort of weird.
As a lighting technitian... i wouldnt be suprised if this could actually be done.
yea your right, i failed with the 6 lines...
Twas good, BUT YOU FORGOT TO CREDIT THE AUDIO.
Oh sorry dude. I'll add it in right now. Thx for the reminder.
