Well, you're masters of your idiom.
I am especially impressed with the animation in the Starfox segments.
I didn't laugh once, but I fully understand that this film wasn't made for me.
The Pokeporn section was a tad confusing. Did you mean it to be taken comically or was it just a steaming pile of fanservice? Not to say that I don't approve of it. After all, what Newgrounds user is above the combination of base titillation and precious childhood memories.
I'm aware of how difficult it is to draw realistic humans, but for chrissakes, there's a fucking limit. Your stupid need to indulge in "cinematic" angles makes the princess look like she has Down's Syndrome. Unless of course, this is the type of post-apocalyptic universe in which everyone's retarded. Also, apparently, the princess' hair is made of several hundred strands of thick acupuncture needles. The best part of the whole thing was the elephant animation, which I'll assume you rotoscoped. What I can't understand is that you attempt to emphasize this grim and gritty neo-futurist reality and then your protagonist turns into a fucking lizard. What is this, Sci-fi or fantasy? It doesn't matter because in any genre that would be considered moronic. The backgrounds are outstandingly simplistic compared to your overtly busy character design, which gets especially perplexing during the scene when the lizard-boy and the princess are stealing away into a dark alley. I gather that this is nothing more than a simple masturbation fantasy from a closet furry who's to embarrassed to admit his shameful fetish.
If you want to "Mickey Mouse" something, try the second movement of Bartok's concerto for orchestra. It's really fab.
So...Zero flashes on Newgrounds but knows more about it than me, I see a whole bunch of complaints and things I have done wrong. However, I don't see any suggestions about how you would have done it or how I could do it better. Could this be because you are as worthless as your review? As far as your beef about my protagonist goes, if the protagonist fit into society with no problems and isn't really different in any discernible way, then there would be no point in putting him in the story. A couple examples: Samurai Jack (Lo-tech in Hi-Tech world /parallel reference), and umm..... oh! anything good you have ever watched. Being that this is the future, in a world in which you know nothing about, who's to say that isn't a race of people? All you have to do is use your imagina... never mind. As far as backgrounds go, I think you were abused as a child and enjoy the ability to rant at people on the internet where someone will listen, even if they don't care. Speaking of masturbation, I know since real girls are definitely off the menu for you, it must be a big part of your life. That is probably why you chose to mention it needlessly in this review. By the way, I did draw the elephants and I'm glad you liked them. If you ever want to quit heckling from the sidelines, I'm sure I could show you a thing or two about animation. As long as we're on the subject of you and Mickey Mouse, he made better audio contributions to the world in his silent film days than any noise you've ever produced, including your submissions. Furthermore, Mickey Mouse approves of the message.
Might be generic anime, might not be.
Your style, while not poor, is very common. You might want to consider developing a more personal, varied style to separate yourself from the hordes of weeaboo bullshit that plague this website. In the gunfight scene, your character appears to be off-model several times, but considering that you are alone in composing difficult FBF animation I suppose it's understandable. Despite this, the art has a sense of consummate professionalism about it; if not marred by terminal overuse of photoshop textures.
The biggest problem with this trailer is its lousy exhibition. It is not prudent to call the scientest "crazy" or to call the toys "evil." Those adjectives are judgment calls the audience has to make. You could probably just get rid of those without to much damage to the overall trailer.
The music and sound quality are both good and I appreciated a minimum amount of garbling on the part of the voice actor playing the scientest. The music, while appropriate, was not very interesting.
The best thing about this trailer was its dynamic editing, which, judging by your other movies, you have a natural talent for.
The thing that would do this in is complete and utter adherence to the cliches of bad anime, which this trailer dangerously approaches at times. Over-dramitization, simplistic plots, girl robot-on-guy robot action are all things that can be easily avoided and would probably enrich this movie.
DEVELOP A PERSONAL STYLE FOR CHRIST'S SAKE!
What the fuck?
What has been with the recent influx of objectively decent material in the audio portal? I always counted being a haven of shit, but this is good. Neat little two-chord progression? Porn groove drums? Little synth flute flourishes? Pleasant ambient washes? A bass line with a non-conventional rhythm? This shit's gonna make me spoiled,
A lot of it is a shit haven full of poorly produced Bass Hunter rip-off songs and songs lacking originality and production value. I'm glad someone else appreciates quality music. Thanks for the review, it really gives me assurance that there are more people in the audio portal that have expanded music taste outside of techno/trance and mainstream radio. I'm actually pretty glad I'm getting mixed reviews because 90% of the songs that get all 10's suck balls in my book so I must be doing something right.
I love it!
It's not fair, I automatically enjoy anything with pinch harmonic interludes. The beginning kind sound like a slowed down 'Fight Fire with Fire,' but meh, so does basically all thrash metal.
Clint Mansell Much?
You ever seen Requiem for a Dream? Shitty movie, famous soundtrack. It sounds fairly close to what you've done here. If you can get a guy with a facile political message to rap over this, you'll sell a million copies.
i've never seen Requiem for a Dream.
and theres plenty of guys with a political message but im not sure they have the flow to fit it
Immortal Technique and Dead Prez comes to mind when it comes to politacl rappers
but in this beat ive broken about every law in terms of a rap beat
its only 2 verses and yet 5 minutes long
but if some one plans to rap with out a chourus or hook
[Some one like Nimbus The General, another rapper here on newgrounds]
then it can work.
If you know your hip hop music
perfecting a flow for this beat can incopasitate you
becouse i left no room to breathe in it
so it will require an Exellent amount of talent for somthing as difficult as this
if i was a begginer MC
i would never choose this beat
[Great Beats + Wack rapper = Disaster]
I belive this song alone proves that Rappers have more talent than singers
singers can just Blow a song right over it with no problem
but a rapper must hit every single syllabol to match the flow of this
i doubt any one in the entire hip hop industry can do it
[Maybe Big L, But he is dead]
