Pretty impressive man! I remember watching this and Walk Smash Walk back when I was in college about 7 years ago and thinking they were badass back then. This was before youtube and people are still commenting on this flash! Good job, man. You should be proud of this stuff!
The graphics were smooth and well doctored. Some of the peasant's facial expressions (especially around the eyes) did not seem natural and that is why there is an eight on graphics points. However, smoothness and continuity alone could almost merit you the 9 or 10 in graphics.
Someone has already mentioned it, but the physical recording of the voices is a little rough and I think you could do more with the acting itself, with a flash so visually stunning, it felt like the emotion in the characters was sub par.
Also, I would've expected the Lion to sing something a little bit more mellower and for a Bass, not tenor, unless of course it was your intent to create a joke here. In which case it worked and I gave you 4 points for humor.
I get the plot set up, but I crave a bit more character development personally. I haven't seen any of your flashes aside from this one, but from seeing this alone, I don't know the motivations of anyone involved.
Why would the king figure care to see peasants about talking animals? If the peasant knew the king would want to know this, why would he be so taken aback to find a singing lion? Also, the peasant's reaction seems mixed, he seems confused, but abjectedly abandons his goals and leaves. Also, the king decrees that he's done for today is swayed by the gravity of the man holding the pot. There's obviously some signifigance involved there, but the moment is lost because we don't see enough of the king to know that it would take a lot to shake him or if that he is weak and trifling.
I hope that this isn't taken negatively, as I think this is a beautiful flash, but with such talent of animation and music, I would expect the other aspects of a cartoon to rise as well. I sincerely hope that this helps you in your progress.
Obviously, if this is deserving of frontpage status and is at like a 1.14 in the ratings, NG staff must find it pretty damn funny. To all you reviewers who trashed this flash, I just have to say, "it is you who are the ball-lickers..."
Obviously, you parodied the hell out of Ultimate Showdown, which granted owes most of it's merit to the fact that it was a really amusing song. I would say most of the votes wouldn't have been so high if the music sucked, cuz I've seen a lot better animation (of course not to trash US, because I think that was damn funny too).
As far as this flash goes, I got the joke Yellow. I think it's hilarious and I'm sorry you have to wade through the shit of these ignorant fools who just took this as an affront to their favorite anime show. I like Teen Titans and I can still laugh at "TEEN TITANS IS GHEY!" so I fail to see why they can't get over themselves.
The animation was a good parody of the original US, but I think you could've spent just a little more time on it. As far as audio goes, spot on, you nailed the feel of the US theme and I would've just liked to see a little longer version.
Lastly, if you have that big of a problem with a good parody, why the fuck is everyone so excited about the Numa Numa variations. I bet half of you bastards who trashed this flash wet yourselves when a new flash about Gary comes out. So, if you don't have any constructive criticism about this guy's work, kindly STFU.
I didn't think that it was that funny. Just a dirty song. Also, it's by a guy named Kevin Bloody Wilson and I can't help but notice that you don't have his name listed as the owner of the audio you're using so good job stealing someone's creative work.
The artwork was great and the music was excellent and voice acting was pretty decent. The plot and characters need a little work though. More episodes would prolly help that. The retard jokes can be overplayed though. All in all, pretty good job, especially on the animation.
A Terrible Mockery
This movie sucked. Not neccessarily because of the animation quality or the voices, but for the fact that it was inconsistent with any of the characters' motivation. Nothing related to the actual series with regard to how the characters behaved, and this is a major problem since ATHF is a primarily character driven show.
Also, your grammar and spelling sucks ass. Just because it's easier to type on a computer doesn't mean it's ok to ignore proper use of language and grammar.
This movie was bad and you should feel bad!
This is pretty bad, keep trying bud.
Totally Awesome Dude!
This is fantastic. I've watched it about 40 times now and every time I appreciate the painstaking effort put into matching the music precisely with the action on screen. As a musician it annoys me greatly to see flash that has poor timing with sound and I know that it tends to be a limitation of the medium, but you have completely outdone yourself here. The guy before me that is badmouthing this flash is a douchebag. He should go piss off the walk-smash-guy and get pwned like the big death robot. Again, great music, great flash, great job!
The guy before mine is a retard
Yeah, he's a re-re. Basically, the idea is great, who gives a shit what color the lasers are.
