Pretty great Insidious parody, ha! Lots of little touches in there for fans of the movie...was the music from it too? It seemed recognizeable. Love the goofy dancing demon, that's pretty much how I felt when I saw the movie too.
Its a start
Okay, if this is your first Flash creation ever, then the quality is understandable. What I would recommend is to
a) think about the comedic timing a bit more in the planning stage...I honestly have no idea what just happened or what was supposed to be funny. This can be done with very little animation skills and will add a lot to your movie. See Marc M (RomeoJr)'s stuff as an example.
b) add detail. Basically what you've created is what the first draft of an animation should look like. Simplistic drawings just to map out the timing. Next step, make each and every drawing look better. Its time consuming but that's kind of the whole point.
Hopefully this helped, and good luck in your future animations.
Pretty fun, but...
When you say you ran out of space for the ending, what do you actually mean? It's a decent toon and probably gave you some good practice with animation, but I'm sure the stuff you make in the near future will be even better.
One thing I actually disliked much more than the ending (which was kind of funny in retrospect, in a Tricky the Clown kinda way) was the lack of characterization. You are clearly going for a certain cartoonish feel in this movie and it seems like you have a cool main character (the zombie hand), but you didn't spend enough time making the character interesting to the viewer, or the side characters for that matter. Why does that one guy have a gun? Is this the zombie apocalypse or is it just one zombie back from the dead?
I like the idea of this hand having lots of character with very emotive gestures, like Thing from Addams Family, and I would spend more time on that. Good luck sirs.
Thanks for the first review that I can actually use stuff with. :)
Yeah I need to work on my characters a little more.
For some reason I was very amused by this! The sound and art quality was lacking, sure, but the sound was still *funny* and the graphics effective, so I liked it nonetheless. Keep it up.
I think you could have made that statement with a little more entertainment to be honest. I mean, I get it, it was overly dramatic intentionally, but your point would have been better taken if you made the Flash itself a little better (and shorter, more to the point).
Also, whats with putting Blockhead in the well of overused icons? He's actually funny.
no he's not.
Amusing but could be better
I was definitely amused, but here are my criticisms:
1) I would definitely stick with Jack Bauer on the Lost island, the CTU scenes weren't particularly interesting or funny
2) Play more off the in-jokes of the series, so that fans can actually appreciate your parody. If someone hasnt seen the shows and isnt laughing, thats probably a good thing.
There was a lot of untapped comedy gold here, I would follow it up with more concise humor and consider the previous criticisms.
Very cool graphical style though!
Funny, but slow
This movie is great, just like all of your other movies. The graphics and style are superb, and 'dream' scene where he rescues Saria really shined. Even the humor and the voices were pretty good, but that's where it slacked a bit - the pacing was a bit slow, taking away from the some of the effect of the humor. Also, the recording quality of the voices didnt match the quality of your animation, if you are that good at drawing you should get some better technology!
Now, just to wait for your next movie to come out.
I feel for you.
I give you a 5/5 for having the courage to completely and utterly embarass yourself and your kin by posting this on the internet. Which you did very well.
Then again, all things considered, this is probably one of your less embarassing moments. Good work.
For a fan of Little Fighter 2, its at least something. Sure, it was corny as hell, had a horrible plot, etc, and could have been much better, but the use of the game animation was well-done. Hopefully other people will actually play Little Fighter before reviewing.
It seems like no one knows how these movies get the portal awards, so here it is: Underdog of the Week means it had the biggest difference between scores and reviews, as in its score is much better than the Overall Scores given by reviewers. People seem to think that the review scores they give don't matter, but they really do, so don't be careless with them.
As to the movie, it was...messed up.
