Lacks direction and originality. The part where the girl falls in love with the guy needs more dynamic character growth. The scene in the woods was poorly scripted and felt like cardboard. I could have done without the werewolf character entirely and I felt like he didnt contribute much to the story. The protagonist needs to be more clearly defined and needs to emote more.
Oh I'm sorry. This wasn't another twilight installment? I must be getting bad at telling a part overdone, rehashed, poorly written, and poorly voiced shit with mediocre graphics.
Half a star for effort.
Let me know when you do something original.
As a huge aficionado of acappella, I must say that i believe this to be a wonderful tribute to both the song and the genre. While within the "series" as jimmy90 calls it, this is somewhat of a non-sequitur, it was be fool-hardy to assume that donkeybazooka is going for such. It is indeed indicated that the author does not care for the 1st part of this series. Rather, the transition from part 1 to this one is similar to the random song and dance number in the movie Enchanted. While it came as somewhat of a surprise even for that movie, it was well placed and effective and this music video serves the same purpose.
In fact, I have taken to watching it once a day now not only because I love the song but also because the interpretation that the animation gives it plays well to how I conceptualize the piece.
Wonderful animation, great concept, 10/10, 5/5
Praise well deserved for a well done flash. Good job donkiebazooka!!
Ive read a couple of reviews about this movie and what people have thought and it is my humble opinion that people are looking at this movie and judging its genre on aspects of a different genre. People, you have to realize what kind of movie this is and judge it occordingly. Look at the style of the movie and make judgements according to its style. If u did not like the style then as intelligent human beings you should be able to appreciate the style of cartoon being created here. There are hundreds of cartoons on Disney channel, Cartoon Network, and the like that have worse art from an artistic standpoint as far as effort goes to draw but do exceedingly well for the style being presented and the ideas behind it. This flash is a stylistic piece and must be treated as such in order for the humor in it to be found.
With that said, as far as style of this type of cartoon i give you a 9 for matching the style to that of slapstick, absurdist cartoons. Artwork haves a 9 as well for simple yet efficient animation techniques and intelligent uses of shading to promote ideas and further the style. The artwork complimented the style throughout the piece and worked to promote the humor behind it. As far as choices made, they all fit the style very well with absurd twists to them which helps to bring the audience in with the style.
All in all, a solid piece of flash work and an improvement on your earlier idea of the same genre. I applaud your work and compliment your efforts. Looking forward to the next one.
Nice. Second level of Zombie's ate my neighbors. I love it. The store level with the stupid satanic dolls at the 6 packs of coke that u used for weapons lol
Not only was this funny as mess
Not only was it drawn very well
Not only was the animation smooth and intelligent
Not only were the puns witty and smart
But... There was Reel Big Fish.... And that... that means the world
I love it but
Ive watched this thing about 20 times now cause i love the song and i love ur animation and im trying to get pointers from it but just recently alot of stuff went from White to Dark Gray and it makes the video look freaky? You may wanna fix that GOODJOB THOUGH :D
very nice. Very smooth animation with cut,crisp, and tight directions. Very nice work
Well Well. I always take pleasure in reading reviews that people put on ur flashes. Its always nice for the retards of society and the purely oblivously stupid people to place signs on themselves so they are easier to avoid. Put i suppose some people are naturally dumb and cant think on the same level as others. If no one has noticed, this flash isnt particularly meant to be funny. I believe that it is meant to be a pleasant flash that shows how people must answer for what they do and how rudeness and meaness are never acceptable. All people have come to care about in Newgrounds is just some violent shit that has no meaning at all behind it. And so, American society drives itself deeper into a hole of shit. Good flash man. Good flash. Dont let the less educated of society get you down.
omg absolutely the best acid trip ive ever had! That kicked total ass
Simon and Garfunkle, if they were dead, would be turning over in their graves after u butchered their song.......this isnt even socially redeeming. Its not funny, its not entertaining, it simply has decent animation and thtas all......Work on ur next one and make it WORTH viewing.
