Madness Abrogation Madness Abrogation

Rated 5 / 5 stars

No complaints, but...

I've kind of lost track of the story. Was one of those guys still supposed to be Hank?



Semi-Circle n' Triangle Semi-Circle n' Triangle

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

As good as one of these types of things can be

It's fine, considering how little effort your supposed to put into one of these animations.



An Unfortunate Girl:ONE An Unfortunate Girl:ONE

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good amount of creepy

But I'm not quite sure how creeped out I should be. Did she have the worm kill her friend? That was left a bit ambiguous. It would certainly be a bit more creepy if that were the case.

Good, but...

You got some of the lyrics wrong.
It's not "Look at you two clips" It's "Look at youtube clips". The whole reason they made an english version of this song was because of it's popularty on youtube, so they reference it in the song.

You are correct! I just updated it with the correct lyrics. Thanks for helping me point that out!


People of Punk-o-matic 2 People of Punk-o-matic 2

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Repetitive

First off, there's nothing wrong with cursing, but eventually it gets just annoying. I'd think you'd already know this since one of the characters is an intentionally annoying kid who curses too much (being intentionally annoying doesn't redeem it from being annoying by the way). On top of that, all the characters are way to repetitive (the old lady screams and Bart just keep saying things along the lines of "I say" and "What ho?"). There were a few genuinely good scenes, especially the last one with the singing, but a lot of it repeated the same jokes over and over. Also, about half of the voices were pretty annoying (again, intentionally annoying is just a bad thing to do in the entertainment business)
I know you spent a lot of time making this 38 minutes worth of footage and get pissed when people say you didn't do enough work on it, but it's kind of true (note: kind of).
What I mean is that you simply should not have made so many scenes. You could have easily cut out the bulk of the scenes down to about a fourth of what it was (10-8 minutes) and instead spent time making those scenes that were still left better (better jokes and maybe even better animation).
Now, by online standards, and considering it's part of a game, this gets 10/10 5/5, maybe a little less if your being extra harsh, but it could have been a lot better, in fact I would have enjoyed it a lot better if there was less of it.

sure could have been a lot of better

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Hilarious

It was great, everything I expected, no comments... except this one I'm making right now.... Anyway, it made me laugh, thats the important thing. Hope there aren't to many wackadoos who get offended by it.

This kind of effort makes me proud.

I have always loved Hanias music, and I always thought it should be judged as a proffesionial piece as opposed to a slapshod amature one, and the same goes for this.
Aside from all the obvious great jobs done in this movie (Music, animation, music going flawlessly with animation) the dialouge was snappy, timed perfectly, origenal, and inspirational. The speech about "Cleaning up the messes of weaker men" was downright poetic.

For the past year or so I have been reading about tropes so as to improve my knowledge and writing skills. In case you don't know what a trope is, cliches are what we call overused tropes.
Anyway, because I have been studying these devices that are used all the time in stories, I've started to become cynical about them, because I see them all the time.
Like when ever a guy gets mistaken for gay, a writer will make another guy who is nearby admit that he was "also" gay all along while also saying the guy who was mistaken for gay gave him the "courage to come out".
Or in childrens cartoons, there is a trope called "The complainer is always wrong" where one of the characters will disagree with the others, but always be proved wrong in the end.
But when I watched this movie, it was so good I didn't even think of what tropes it was using.
This goes to show that as long as a cliche is used along with effort as opposed to being used for the sake of being lazy, it can still be entertaining.
It also goes to show that you don't have to subvert every cliche to be considered "artistic" and "new", infact, subverting cliches can become a hack move if only done for the sake of thinking that it makes you "new" and "hip"
