mindscrew plz? why thank you sir!
I swear, every time I watch this I wonder if the game is as much of an acid trip as this particular episode of awesome....
*snerk* Oh Captain Ig'nant has visited my town so much XD It just makes this all the funnier, if a little sad after thinking about it. I can definitely see how this got you an A.
You sir, are an excellent satirist. I was laughing all the way through. Keep up the kickass work.
Sprite films are usually feast or famine ordeals, but I have to say I was very impressed. I'm hoping to give a rounded review, so let's get started.
The storyline on both parts is a bit... cliche in some sections. The dialog was nicely written for dramatic elements, if a little over-dramatic in some areas. However, it's no less than what I would see watching most of the street fighter anime series... or the movie. It's a tad bare bones for a plot and there are a lot of wide gaps. Maybe you were trying to keep it short. Maybe you were going for something that people could interpret in their own minds. I don't know.
There were a few out of character moments in my eyes, namely with Chameleon and Ryu, slightly for Akuma. Ryu, in-game, was always portrayed as the warrior seeking the ultimate challenge. I don't see him backing down just yet for love. Chameleon, I doubt would show any sentiment over Scorpion's death. In fact I really don't see how he could be connected with Scorpion, since the ninja's allegiance relationships during the game plots of MK dissolve the instant their usefulness is gone. The only one that makes sense in theory would be Chameleon and Reptile, considering the possibility that they share a homeworld. With Akuma... sentiment is not his style, long and short of it. But I'm splitting hairs, here, not to mention discussing character development in personas used in fighting games. Besides, it's all plot related and can be forgiven as such. Moving on.
I have to agree to a point with Moosezorz that the fight scenes were biased a bit. Watching the life bars, Chameleon had an advantage. I would assume this is because he is (plotwise) the bodyguard of a very important figure; thus, he would not be a pushover, but Shin Akuma's no slouch either. And if anything, it almost seemed better that the two would fight to a draw before one winning out for whatever reason could be specified.
All that aside, the technical execution of this film was nothing shy of breathtaking. I was quite impressed with the spritework (which if you're doing a sprite-based film, can make or break it) as well as the effects used. The music was fitting to what was going on, which is always a plus in my book. The menu was a little hard to read in some places, but it's only a minor gripe. I'm not going to nitpick here because this part not only made the film amazing to watch, I also lack the prowess in this department to give anything constructive as far as a proper critique would go.
Overall, I'd say this is worth 6/10 rating and a vote of 3 out of 5 - Above average, a fun watch, and definitely something I'd pass on to friends as a good film. You might get some gripes from people within the fandoms.
Keep up the great work and thanks for an interesting watch :)
This was definitely worth the view, and it retains that humor after countless watchings of it.
Some time after viewing this for the first time, I later read about a girl electrocuting herself in the bathtub while trying to update Twitter. Thinking about that and comparing it to Draconius impaling himself with his own head just made the whole story even more funny.
I have to tip my hat to you sir. I've been a fan of your work for a while now. It never loses its touch or charm no matter how many times I sit and watch. Thank you for an intelligent and sharp view of things in your work. It makes life worthwhile.
hey no problemo
Jeeezus Christ on a crutch, dude. First time I saw this, I had to go retrieve my jaw. Love the smooth animation in the flash sections, and the mixture of both spritework and hand drawn animation is just magical. This still makes me smile every time I watch it.
You fuckin' rock, dude. Keep up the most awesome work!
This was one of my favorite movies when I was about toddler sized... However it makes me remember one of my favorite shows even more. The whole animation style here screams "Spumco Disney Spoof". Makes me think of the kind of stuff you saw on Ren and Stimpy.
The whole thing was one big mindfuck. I LOVE IT!
If you think it's annoying on the end for the consumer with half a brain, imagine how brain drainingly annoying it is for those of us behind the counter with half a brain. I work at a convenience store and the prompts they give us behind the counter borderline from ludicrous to fucking insane. Makes me want to drive a stake through the district manager's eye.
Watching this felt so good.
Now mind you, I've been a fan of Foamy's common sense for a while now. This one just hit home in a way I haven't had anything do in a while. Or at least nothing new, anyway.
I tip my hat to you sir. Your stuff is made with copious amounts of epic win. Thank you!
