So good I came out of NG retirement to favorite.
I found this to be rather interesting.. Though I have never seen the film, I've known of it's inacurracies, but not to what degree. Good job on the research. I can tell that some time was spent into making this a quality piece, and it definately shows. While the original artwork is a bit plain, it works for this piece.
The presentation was the part that keeps me from giving a higher rating. It would seem that this cartoon was made for people that are on cocaine or red bull, because I tried to keep up with the constant flow of text and images on screen, but the narration was way too fast for that. I suppose that this could be the intended style, but I was torn between trying to read the screen and pay attention to the dialogue.
A stab in the face of some decent work.
Politics aside, I believe this cartoon was a decent slab of work. I can tell that it took the creators some time to piece it together. Some of the animation was quite well done, even though nearly every single use of material in this cartoon (namely the music) is in violation of some kind of copyright law.
I would have appreciated seeing some original characters used to kill some of these "fads". I find it ironic that Pokemon are viewed as saviors, yet some of the more mature characters like Salad Fingers are not.
I don't understand why it's so cool to bash on the hard work of these people. They worked on making their cartoons better, either written or artistically. They strived to succeed, and they deserve the attention and, in some cases, the money they earn. So go ahead and respond to my review with "flag this", but please learn to take criticism, because not everyone will like your cartoon. It's not fair to threaten people just because they don't like Pokemon or Limp Bizkit.
"SWEET SWOLLEN SATAN THIS IS A LONG ONE, yes please no politic ive had enough of george bush...Im glad you enjoyed this..fucken nice collab and all that, most of the charecters made were "original" exept the people that get killed, and no..its not cool to flame peoples work becuse there better then theres, they just THINK there cool becuse there 1 million miles away and they wouldent even bother to say it in there face, back to this.... fucken eh, its been mabey 30 flaming reviews and the angels sent you from above..i tip thy holy hat to you my good sir"
Dude, i'm not going to flag this, it's sort of ligit. Anyway, you DID fail to realize that we do this because we LIKE what these animators do! I LOVE "There She Is!!!" and it was fun to see it get destroyed man! It's all in love. If you would have read either the disclaimer or description, you would have CLEARLY seen that we weren't out to start wars.
Although perhaps a bit belated, this jab at Mr. West's little speech was pretty funny. It seemed like the cartoon was lacking something, but this is the Walrus' style. Good enough for me!
This whole situation just makes me sick. I hate that a tragedy can turn into something like a race debate. C'mon, people. We're better than that.
This is quite possibly the lamest Foamy BS to date. No animation to speak of. I understand it was made quickly so as to respond to the situation. Why don't *you* go out there and help people off their roofs instead of criticizing everyone all of the time? C'mon man. Give them a break.
It's nice to see original work like this.. Nicely written. That's really cool that you are able to share with us something you made for your film school.
The only beef here is the audio. There was some background noise when the narrator spoke. Other than that, it was excellent. Your graphical abilities and animation were perfect for a piece like this.
Shame on you.
Not only is your depiction inaccurate, but it brings with it no message that what happened was wrong. You are about six years too late for your tribute to violence. I understand that you tried to make a beautiful art piece, but your subject material completely ruined your attempt. You just pulled a tragic event out of your sleeve, instead of coming up with something on your own. Shame on all of you.
I normally don't like commentary pieces, but yours had many valid points, and made me laugh. Good job! Not that you need to hear that from me.
It's great to see that a fifth addition to this series is coming out. I'm glad the author is taking his time. Watching this the first time not only introduced me to this original (and very well made) series, but inspired me not to give up my own crappy attempts at cartooning.
The facial animation in this is almost unmatched on Newgrounds. It's long enough to entertain you thoroughly. And except for a grand Monkey Island referance, is one of the most original cartoons I've ever seen on Newgrounds.
I can't wait for part five. Don't rush it, take all the time you need!
Thank you for the kind words!
Indeed, my whole right arm is sore from furiously animating (yes, ANIMATING you sick monkeys!)part 5. It's going to be a three parter, with the first of the three parts to be released here in a couple of weeks. Unfortunatley, even with being highly optimized and compressed it is close to 6 megs! Hopefully people will forgive me when they watch it... Thanks again for the awesome review!
P.S.- I just got done watching a few of your toons. The Fogmarl series is brilliant!
Not bad at all. But if you were to change anything, get rid of the narrator.. It's just so long and drawn out that it almost takes away from the cartoon.
