Impressive voice acting and musical work and my own generosity made me vote this a 5, but really the animation is pretty awful, so good luck passing judgement. I know animation takes ages and ages, but what can you do?
If this doesn't pass, I'd suggest keeping the sounds and audio and completely rejigging the animation. Make it visually exciting - movement should be constant. Like when they are talking in the rain, the raindrops should be moving; when the kid's name has been stolen you could have his face trembling or something. There should be animation in pretty much every frame; still images don't cut it.
The voice acting and atmosphere and music is exceptionally good though,
I still love this
RIP LC man, fucking Hell
Praise be to China.
First piece of advice - don't spend the author's comments telling us how bad the movie is. And get rid of the frame saying the exact same thing, too. We'll make our own minds up and it comes across like a blammable flash with all those disclaimers about quality.
Also, make it longer, or make the intro shorter - for a 'short' like this I shouldn't be expected to sit through any pointlessness.
Also, voice-act rather than using speech bubbles.
The animation is very nice and the graphics are lovely too. The blood effects are beyond reproach. A very fluid and pleasing-to-view cartoonish style.
Hello my good man
I got a bit of nostalgia for old times on NG where things like Pube Muppet and Tricky were ubiquitous, and this movie certainly didn't disappoint. In retrospect it seems bizarre and quite odd that I spent my younger years enjoying movies such as Pube Muppet, with them being so relentlessly crude and disgusting, but there you go, movies like this definitely made an impact on me.
What kind of piece of shit establishment is this.
Fuck off and let me be!
I can even remember the intonations from the computer voice for all the Pube Muppet, like it was such a great idea and it was worth becoming a piece of NG, very very nostalgic and very weird that something so blatantly shitty would be so nostalgic.
But for what it intends to do, fantastic. Hail Pube Muppet.
Try and do more graphics next time
at least try and make something somewhat visually entertaining, I don't want to watch any more of the 'faces toons' because I was honestly bored straight away
Potential with the lipsynching, that was nicely done, but it was all a wee bit too boring and not funny
not even the retard voice, maybe if you want to use that again then try a little harder - jam your tongue into your cheek and give that a shot
try and wait until you've got a more sustainable idea really, come up with something that grabs the attention, like it was short but I could hardly bear it
Thanks. Ok i will.
I made a near-identical flash once
I would've voted 5 just because I made the same thing a few years ago and your version is way better than mine was, but alas I am a bastard.
... but why?
A B, but what a B.
I look at this movie now, after having spent many of my hours on NG, and I am truly very impressed by the greatness of this B. As far as icons go, this is perhaps one of the best icons ever. It's phenomenally inspiring, it's wonderfully minimalist. What it represents, how this B created a flash group that is still dying painfully 6 years later, and countless other groups that still maintain some element of clockishness about them - it's awe inspiring.
It's my new life philosophy, actually - if you throw shit on enough walls, then one day someone will call one of your shit splatters a groundbreaking work of modern art.
Seriously though, I look at this and I seriously feel somewhat humbled by that big red B on the screen. Like, I don't really deserve to be in its presence, which is stupid because it's a 0.3kb flash on a website. Everything about it is unimportant. And yet, it's so powerful, so important, like, I imagine there'd be restorative attempts for this flash in particular if loads of NG was wiped out.
That one small thing can cause such a rich tapestry through slow progression I feel is somewhat divine and spiritual, being an atheist. I know it's not really evolution, but such striking similarities in such wonderful variation - it really is like B was a successful genetic trait for StrawberryClock that his genetic remains live on today. Although the Kitty Krew, Star Syndicate, Uzi Union, whatever, would perhaps resent being called Clock Crew copycats, they must acknowledge the influence. Most flash groups create series, the Clock Crew encouraged flash groups to create self promotion.
And perhaps StrawberryClock was the master of self promotion. It does feel like the B has an aura of self-promotion, of boldness, of brazen cheek almost, but also of power and strength and passion, plastered against the crisp white background like it's imposing. But then, that's all over-analysis, it's just a B. A little off centre, sure. But it means so much more than B. Like, so much more.
Fuck. There are all kinds of clichés you can throw at B, "it started it all," "BBBBBBB," whatever. It wasn't that B worked perfectly, it's that everything else worked perfectly and it put B on a pedestal. There's kind of a sick reality to it, that B is just a lazy flash, but it doesn't even bear acknowledging. B is neat and clean, a snapshot of a day for this B. B is everything, it's the last noise your thoughts make before your mind trails into death, it's the first noise your lips make, ambition has branded a B to your heart cockily to laugh as you try to escape its clutches.
I don't know how many hours I've spent looking at B, over the years. Just looking. Not really daring to turn it off, but not expecting it to do anything. I have dreams where there's this beautiful animation if you wait long enough, where you can feel everything that happens and I eat strawberries and cream on a lovely Summer's day, sat on a hilltop in the mountainside, gently touching the soft skin of a gentle woman, but nothing more, for I want for nothing more, just to get sucked into this B and to live in its powerful embrace, in the mysterious and wonderful world that lives beyond.
I've sat up all night, looking at B, and crying endlessly. The sun has fallen and risen and I've hardly moved apart from shaking, but I keep my eyes dead focused on the screen, my pupils flooded with the white and focused on the red B. It brings everything up, y'know, sorrow and love, it's like staring into the face of God. It brings me to my knees. I worhsip the B. It understands. SBC knew something.
But no, it's all over-analysing. It's just a B. It's the weirdest B in the world, but yet there's such clarity. But it's just a B.
I don't think I can close it just yet. I can't believe I've gotten all of this text out of a B but I'm stuck for ideas the rest of the time. I guess this is my muse. My whole. Fuck, I love this movie.
Am I right in thinking there are only three more?
Just because they're a bit shit really. Yeah, we get it, anything can pass judgement, but you've ran this into the ground and it's a very tiresome series. But 80 days, number 77 - at least there's an end in sight.
To add some constructive criticism to this review, next time, animate, and don't re-use T-Spoon's Sex on the Beach, and try to make a movie that is at least somewhat entertaining to the viewer.
There is animation.
Sex on the Beach is the theme tune to this series, which is why it remains the same.
Some people actually like these. I personally couldn't care less that you don't.
That was pretty badassed
I should perhaps say I didn't pay much attention to Sevenstar's because it was boring, the rest were fucking fantastic epic stories of love, revenge, hatred and fantasticness.
UncomfortableGeorge's was the best, at least as far as graphics and humour go, but I got a laugh out of Blackplastic's too.
Carry on making Dailytoons because you are better than all the clock crew ripoffs by a million miles.
oh my g0d by not paying attention to seven's, you missed a heart wrenching tale about the struggle of an african american teenager and his abduction by david dachovny mhmmfghdf
