the bride of reanimator the bride of reanimator

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good Movie

Great movie. Just a question: was this in any way based off of H.P. Lovecraft's "Herbert West: Reanimator"? Because the time period seems to be around when the short story was written.
By the way, the B.S.O. Amelie was written by Yann Tiersen, one of my favourite composers, so make sure he gets credited.
Keep up the great work.



Caligula Caligula

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Pretty good

It was kind of upsetting, because I really wanted to see him lead the Roman army into battle against "Poisedon" wherein they fired Ballistas and Catapults into the sea, and the soldiers hacked at the water.
Also, I think he should have come off as more, well, insane, seeing as how he was. More depictions of him claiming to be a god, and severing the heads off of the statues of the gods and replacing them with his own would have made for a more entertaining movie. In any case, good job.

i'm curious as to which actual battle your referring, cause if it's the one i'm thinking of then it wasn't actually against poisedon but another atempt to take britan where his men wimped out on him and did not want to go any further across the water. The soldiers were then told to take seashells as thir share of the booty and britan was declared as having been taken over without having set foot there.


Madness Avenger Madness Avenger

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Unoriginal

Given a second chance? I mean, it was well animated and drawn, and the new stuff you added was pretty cool. But the idea of getting a second chance just seems stupid in terms of a sequel. It's the same storyline, just different violence, and I refuse to be satisfied because I don't just like a lot of blood and gore and shooting and killing. Putting a half-decent plot in is a necessity, and that wasn't fully attained by this movie.
In all other aspects, it was great. The music loop got kind of annoying, but it's not that bad.

I suppose I could have just popped off a carbon copy of some japanese RPG plot... but that would consume frames better used for bloody mayhem. Glad I got a seven from you though, glad you enjoyed what bit of it you could.


The Hunt: O.P. Pt. 1 The Hunt: O.P. Pt. 1

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Good work

It was good, and I have no suggestions that haven't already been stated. I do have a question: How did the soldiers survive the nuclear explosion and haven enough of them left to heal? I mean, there really shouldn't be anything left in the crate. Buildings, structures, biological matter. It should have all been vaporized.


RobsH66 responds:

lol... uhh... good question. didn't really think that one through :-\

Actually, this movie was originally the sequel to another movie I made a while ago. I decided not to release it because it consists mostly of inside jokes between my friends and I, and the animation wasn't particularly good (it was the same style as this one, just not nearly as polished). If this movie generates enough of a reaction, I may release it later as a bonus, but it's definitely not something I would want people to take seriously. Basically, the movie shows what happened in the time between when the team arrived at the military complex, and the nuclear explosion that destroyed the base. Like I said, I may release it if this movie generates enough of a response, but I definitely don't want people to consider it as a serious submission of my work.


Nightmare: Nightmare:

Rated 2 / 5 stars

Pretty bad

Like the title says, it's pretty bad. I think the "escaped from hell on a demonic rampage" plotline has been used far too much (once is enough for me, because they usually come off really poorly, and this one did that). I didn't like the demon. It looked too... un-demonic. Also the "two archrivals meeting to set things right again after the good one killed the bad one but the bad one was resurrected" plotline is also overdone. Even in Hollywood. So as far as a flash movie goes, mediocre graphics, cheap and overdone storyline. It has potential, but it's going to take a well developed plot, good animation (doesn't have to be the best out there, just better than what I saw already) and better sound effects. The thing that slaughtered the movie in my opinion was the crappy sound. You need more sound effects. Not too too overdone, but have ripping metal when the door rips off, footsteps, ambient sound, that sort of stuff.
I'd also like to point out I'm Canadian, and I thought the Canada thing was funny. Note to stupid Canadians: It's not making fun of Canada. The stick guy was just stupid. It's that simple. In any case, I am repulsed by the fact that we let El Blacko into our country, either through immigration or birth. I weep for my country, having learnt that people like him are allowed to breathe within it's borders. But lay off Canada. Not all of us are retards. Good job, keep improving, number 2 should score a lot higher if you take some of my suggestion to heart.

Behind the Portal: B Behind the Portal: B

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

It was interesting

It kind of makes fun of Strawberry Clock, but then again, who doesn't? As far as a score goes, I gave it a 7. Nothin too great, but definately better than deserving a 0.
and mjnoir1:
"most of you clocks need to graduate from pre-school. serious, you act like fucking babies.go play with fucking blocks and leave the flash to the mature people."
I'd ridicule the sheer stupidity of your comment if it didn't already do that on its own.

Ducktales: The Auditions Ducktales: The Auditions

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Neat idea

That was a pretty good movie. The art was pretty good, the Michael Jackson scene was hilarious. The juicyfruit thing could have been better. Like a studio light falling on him instead of him being kicked, but that's just my opinion. All in all, a neat movie with a couple of comedy elements that make it entertaining. Good job.
P.S. When you want to add another post-script after the first one, add an extra 'P' instead of an extra 'S' (i.e. P.P.S. P.P.P.S. etc.)
Peace.


Macaroni-Penguin responds:

Aaahhh...P.P.P.S! That makes sense! Many thanks! Many thanks!


Tactical Diplomacy Tactical Diplomacy

Rated 3 / 5 stars

Not very good

It wasn't pure shit. You do have skill at tweening, and that's what 90% of flash is anyways. (And just so I don't get grilled for saying that, allow me to also say that it doesn't have to be, but a frame by frame mousedrawn movie is insanely timeconsuming and thus unfeasible). So I don't blame you for going with floating limbs and all that jazz, but come on, 3 different circles and 3 ovals floating around does not really make the cut for the best drawn movie of the year award. But I digress. The core of this movie was generic. It's a generic SWAT style plotline with cheesy and overdone Matrix effects. When will people learn that putting these bullet time scenes into their movies just makes the movie look worse, even if they are well done. You have potential. Clean up the look of your characters, and then really start to put a ton of effort into crafting out a plotline. Storyboard your movies. Make sure enough explanation was put into the prologue. In this case it was a little sketchy and unsophisticated. Just suggestions, just constructive criticism, don't take it the wrong way. Oh, and I liked the opening. That was pretty cool. Peace.

I COME IN PEACE I COME IN PEACE

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good job

It was a great movie. It told a story, had a message, and was meaningful. Not much to improve on, except that you spelt Deer wrong. When you fix the credits, fix the spelling, too. Also, I understand why it killed the hunter. But why did it start to eat the deer? I know it was supposed to be the Chupicabra (spelling?) but that didn't make sense to me. Why did it stay in the 'killer' form? Perhaps an explanation could be worked in, or at least written in later. Keep up the good work.



Ningen Ningen

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

It was okay...

Was Ningen a ninja? I can't really tell. I mean, some people will probably go "You're stupid, of course he is a ninja. Idiot." But then, looking at how he operated and fought, he didn't really fit into the classic Ninja role. He didn't dress like a ninja. The way he was given a mission was weird, because usually you don't get picked by the employer, you are appointed by your leader, and you don't get the money from the job, your clan does. So the whole conflict between the hero and that other clansmen wouldn't ever happen the way it did in a real ninja clan camp. And then fighting. Most ninja would have taken the guards down with blowdarts, not burst out of their cover to take three guys on at once. They only fought hand to hand and sword to sword if they had to. I mean, as a movie, it is entertaining and it was good, it's just I'd like to see a more authentic ninja animation. But not bad.
