Good but a bit messy
The art is great, the backgrounds are good, the sound is alright. Everything was alright except for most of the animation. I mean, incredible effort, don't get me wrong, but the movements are occasionally... I don't know.
Looks like some frames are missing at times: Like when he is on the toilet and decides to go, he pulls up his pants and leaves in a split second. That needed more frames and needed to last a bit longer. At scene 2, his hand and the chopsticks just vanish. As examples.
Another thing I noticed, which probably just happened once, but in the church, near the end, when Jazz sits down for a smoke, he and the other guy make movements at the exact, I repeat, EXACT same time. That little... thing... was a little uncomfortable.
However, this was still great. Good job.
Plenty of potential here
The movements are pretty good and the choreography is alright. So is the way the story is told.
The only problems I have are the framerate (too low), the graphics (you desperately need to learn about one point perspective) and the same sound effect used over and over (like the THUD at the start)
You're lucky to get a daily 2nd with this.
That was quite good
Sadly, not too much happened. But that didn't lose you any stars.
What did keep you from the full 10 was that there was plenty of shapes in the background and the props that didn't move, and that made them look detailed. While this is good as an overall style, it doesn't seem to work with underdetailed close-ups of the crow. Seeing the plain and simple crow one second and then a very well detailed scare crow the next kind of takes away from the style/theme.
My suggestion for this would've been to try to make the crow much more detailed to catch up with the scarecrow or the pumpkins (by possibly adding several 'shadows/shades' on it).
I'd like to say something about your obssession with blurring things but it was so well done, I want to see more of it.
Another thing I'd like to see is a longer flash, because too often I see short flashes like this on Halloween.
Anywho, congratulations, I'm off to see everything else you've made.
I'm going to take a different direction with this.
I see everyone saying 'I love this just because I love the series'. No one is saying what could make this better.
From what I see, the series is original in it's own and your creativity is very well done, but here are some things you could improve on:
You always use the same graphics for each episode. Try upgrading your graphics other than using stick figures with eyeballs and cowboy hats. Even the stroke that you're using is incredibly rough. Try toying with the shape of the brush and set it to 0 smoothness for a much more interesting drawing.
The sounds are usually of poor quality or shouldn't be used for the action. I highly suggest getting a new sound source as this one has static at times or is irrelevant.
The one thing that makes animations great is effort. And from what I can see, you just put in an idea and leave it at that. If one character is doing something such as eating a cake and growing significantly larger, the other character is still staring blankly at the viewer as he has been doing for the last 2 minutes. Always have everyone doing something. Reacting to each other subtly while the other character is doing something wild and attention grabbing. With pencilmation, it has always been one person does something, 30 frame gap then something else happens. Put more effort into it.
I'm going to give this an 8 mostly because you can stick with this for 7 episodes and always having cheesy and childish idea's that make me smile.
It's pretty... dull...
The humor is pretty bad... and at the end, if it was meant to be a truck hitting him, SHOW that it's a truck. Really, the only decent part is his face at the end, but that doesn't sell for anything.
Don't make a sequel, but practice animating instead.
i know, it was my first flash movie, and i was gona say im not making one, i just never go onto this movie anymore. and i thought it might have been obvious that it was a trcuik, but i must have been wrong, but how would i show that it was a truck then?
I don't see how people could like this...
Firstly, the custom artwork that you made sucked. They were horrible recolors of already existing sprites. Heck, even the back view of Peter was completely bad.
The jokes were alright for the first minute or two with the childish humor but then every second line of dialogue you threw in a meme that was unrelated. You even drowned out the comedy quickly with an overdose of pedophilia jokes. The last 9 minutes consisted of nothing BUT internet related material. It got unfunny really quickly.
The animation was even worse. It was all of poor quality and was absolutely nothiing special. It was all very slow moving... 9 of the 10 minutes was Peter walking through the grass. You even displayed lack of enthusiasm while doing the 'special effects'. Even them walking out of the door was bad. It consisted of nothing but half-assed tween's.
Having to click each time we want to continue with the dialogue distracts the viewer from the feel that they're watching a movie, not playing a game. However, this was only on several occasions so I'll give you my 3 stars for that.
All in all, this was horrible. Why everybody obsesses over something like this is beyond me.
LOL @ useless review. Just because it's negative. Tsk, tsk, people.
I didn't have THAT many memes. :x
...Okay, I had a lot, but there was plenty of Pokémon satire and the only meme-related parts were the Bellawesome battle, the ending (although those memes were just filler for the text box) and Peter getting Rickroll'd. I'd say maybe 2 of the 10 minutes were memes rather than NINE.
Yeah, it's tweens. :/ It's a sprite movie, whatever, at least I took the initiative to draw some shit. I'll have to practice for next time.
And you're entitled to your own opinion. This review was by FAR more helpful than the "ong i giv this a 999999/10 lool thats so funny cuz no1s ever dun dat b4" reviews that this is filled with. Thanks for your critique!
EDIT: Hahahahahahahaha, it's helpful now! I feel like Jesus. >:)
That was quite good.
A rare little animation glitch here and there but that was overshadowed by the little spells they used. Very simple and well-portrayed. 10 and 5'ved.
First off, the reviewers are fucking retards. They want nothing but violence. They don't even under stnad this flash at all.
Get a fucking brain you dipshits.
Ok; This flash was pretty clever. Your colouring of the backgrounds weren't up to par but the art wasn't bad overall. Good job.
Also; Unusually low frame rate...
The slowness made it quite boring but...2 stars gone.
7 because the comedy, although it was good, wasn't enough of it.
Even though there wasn't much animation
Where there was, it looked pretty good. Most of the characters are individual and the violence seemed fluid. Just needs to be more out of the box.
Finally someone really likes it.
