Battle of the Best Battle of the Best

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Nice try.

First of all, I didn't care much about the fact that it was "another sprite movie", because the fight was pretty good. It was exciting and fast paced, so it was blood pumping.

Although this was a sprite movie, some of the drawings you made were pretty good, like when Ryu was turning into Evil Ryu. However, I must say that the text was poor. The beginning texts were outlined in red and the fill was a weird black and white gradient. It's like you tried to make a unique style of text, but I think it would have been better if you just sticked to the normal text tool. I also think that the "FIGHT" text needs some editing, such as shading and different fonts.

Like I mentioned before, the fight was pretty good. It was a creative one, not just a simple and dull series of punches and kicks. I didn't like the ending, though. Ryu dies with his body splitting into two with poorly drawn blood spilling out of him, and a truck randomly falls on Ken? Personally I think you could have came up with a much better ending, like them stopping fighting somehow and becoming friends again. Or maybe some other threat showing up, then Ryu and Ken teaming up and defeating the threat.

By the way, the movie's supposed to be about a tournament, but it only showed one fight, and no other info about the tournament was revealed. Assuming that you're planning to release sequels, I don't think it's a bad start.

The REPLAY button doesn't work. It just rewinds to the part where the truck falls. I'm sorry but I'll have to take off a point for your lack of awareness and double checking.

The sounds were good and the music fit well. I'd suggest you give audio credits though, since they don't show up on the left.

Points taken off:
- 2 points for the lack of originality.
- 1 point for some of the poor graphics.
- 1 point for the lack of carefulness, since you aren't aware that the REPLAY button won't work.

I'd say a pretty good sprite movie, overall. I hope you release sequels to this, because you have the potential. Good luck on your future projects.

Awesome, thanks for taking the time to review my flash. I actually was going to make a longer ending, with ken and ryu teaming up against another threat. That was the orginal plan. Then I decided later that the two would get too powerful and kill eachother. But in the long run, the flash size was getting big and other issues were happening with the flash. So I know that the ending wasnt anything too special but I hope to improve on that in the sequel. I made the tournament thing with the intent of there being more than one. Hopefully I can improve on some of the things you mentioned.


MSPaintWhatDoYouWantToBe? MSPaintWhatDoYouWantToBe?

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Quite boring.

Kind of fun to watch at first, but got boring pretty quickly. You certainly put quite some of effort into this, gathering all the pictures and making them a flash together.

However, making a flash slideshow and submitting it to NG doesn't really have a point. You could have done it in Power Point and it would have been much easier. Well that's not the point. What I'm trying to say is, if something that already could have been done in Power Point was done in Flash, it's not a flash that requires much work. Flashes should have unique attributes, things that cannot be done in simple MS programs. You need to surprise the viewer with the unique abilities of yourself and Flash. I hope I'm making sense.

The slideshow was too fast. I think you should make each photo show up for at least three full seconds or maybe four. Just so that the viewer can examine them clearly. As EvilJesus also said, you should also be able to pause the animation, or maybe even rewind it in case you missed something. Maybe you should make a controllable progress bar just like in media players. Some of the usernames were also hard to read because of the weird fancy fonts they were written in. And of course, because of the fast slideshow.

As for the music choice, personally I would have preferred something slower. It's just a personal idea so I won't take off points for this.

In conclusion, although you clearly spent some effort, this movie didn't require much Flash work. The same slideshow made in Power Point or Movie Maker would have almost been the same. Like I mentioned before, if you added a progress bar, and maybe make the interface better with some background and stuff like that, it would have been something much more like it was done in Flash.

I took off:
- 2 points for the lack of visual interface
- 2 points for the slideshow being too fast
- 1 point for the repetitiveness. It's only one point, because every movie and game is repetitive at some point, right?

The rest is entirely for the effort you spent.

Remains 5/10. I'm sorry but combining a bunch of BBS images and making them into a slideshow isn't something original. Not only that, the slideshow wasn't good either. You need to put more Flash work into it to make it something more like it was done in Flash.

Good luck on the future projects you pursue.

Cyanide & Happiness Book Cyanide & Happiness Book

Rated 5 / 5 stars

An excellent commercial.

It was actually more than a commercial. A humorous one. It was hilarious that every task of books, except reading, was mentioned. The fact that not many people read anymore was explained in a humorous way, and was done correctly. Although it didn't mention anything about the book itself, I highly doubt that this movie was meant to be a commercial. Great job on this one.

A Men's Room Monologue A Men's Room Monologue

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

One of my favourites.

This is one of my favourite movies on NG mainly because it's so true. I (and a lot of people) agree with basically everything you said, I hate automatic sinks and hand "dryers". The monologue is great and very well explained, it kept me interested all the way through and I even watched it the third time (or fourth) today.

The reason why I deducted a star is because of the graphics. You didn't seem to bother much with visuals, or maybe you just weren't talented. If the monologue was a bad one, I would have deducted more stars, but it's so good that it makes up for the poor graphics. Good job, keep it up.



Life in the Portal: Clock Life in the Portal: Clock

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This is just great.

This is one of the few Clockday submissions that I liked, mainly because it's a logical one. I chuckled all the way through, the idea and the plot was excellent. The only reason I deducted a star is because this movie lacks backgrounds, they are plain white, and I think some drawings were worth spending more time on and improving. Other than that, it's great. I laughed hard at the "Circle N Circle", which I think was inspired by Stamper's "Circle 'N Square". As for the voice acting, it awesome. FatKidWithAJetPack did a good job. I hope both of you keep up the good work.

Street Fighter Collab Street Fighter Collab

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Outstanding!

Undisputedly the best collab I've ever seen. Most of the parts make me laugh my socks off, with that combined with great art, animation, and music, that's what I call a great collab.

My favourites:
1st- El-Cid: I just laughed at the whole part, from the beginning to the end, and I can watch it 100 times and still laugh.
2nd- TomFulp: Even though he wasn't co-authored, he did a great job. I especially laughed at the grin on Ryu's face, he looked so dumb. This part needed some shading, though.
3rd- phantomZ: The thing that made me laugh most was Ken's screams, and how the word "ass" was pronounced.
4th- ChakraX: Laughed all the way through, especially how Zangief slams Sakura's haid on his giant dick, and how his hair "gets an erection".
5th- Fiergon: The choice of songs were especially funny, how Guile kept rewinding the song, and how Blanka was listening to classical music.
6th- Stamper: The shitting and vomiting was a bit exarragated, but it still gave me a good laugh, especially Guile's speech and how Bison's vomit was purple. xD
7th- Nalem: It gave me a good laugh, but I couldn't help but notice how Ken's drawing kept changing. Why is it like that?

Yeah, so much favourites, but it's because they are awesome.

The worst was AlmightyHans's in my opinion, it showed nothing interesting and the art was... weird.

This collab was definately worth the hard work, it was just awesome. Congratulations. What's with all the dick jokes, though? :)

Batman: Bright Day Batman: Bright Day

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great movie.

I always wondered why Joker had to do that smacking sound every second, and you made a hilarious spoof to it. Batman's scary voice was matched greatly, too. Joker's drawing was amazing, Batman's face was stupid, which I think was intentional, because it was funny.

I'm not complaining about the lack of animation, because all this movie needed was mouth animations, and you've already done it. Well done, keep up the good work.



Happy Fast Food Happy Fast Food

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Nice movie.

It's true, too. Don't know how much true, though. Anyway, it was really funny and well-animated, I especially laughed at how the cow simply allowed the guy to cut him. Keep up the good work.



Stamper N' Johnny Stamper N' Johnny

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Laughed my ass off.

Especially when Stamper started crying. The background music just increased the fun. Nice joke, but I would suggest you add a body to Stamper, and don't make the characters move while they're talking, just make their mouths move.



Evolution of The Thing Evolution of The Thing

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Hahahaha...

Nice movie. Another good thing you pulled off. I liked the idea - i think you were trying to show how Earth originated- even though i couldn't really understand what was going on. Example: there was a white circle with yellow dots in it. What was it? An egg? Maybe a cell? And this movie actually DOES have a point, how Earth originated perhaps?

Also, you might want to add some more detail. Like, where was that water in the beginning dripping from? Or, how did that "white circle with yellow dots" turn into Earth? A chemical reaction? :P

Well, it's a nice movie. I laughed at the ending. You are creative (like me :P), use this to your advantage and keep making more. If you like the way i'm reviewing your flashes, i might review your others too. I would love to :))

Waiting for more,
-mrty
