you sold out to the man
the only thing i sell is sex
That was hilarious. The voice acting is what made it!
Man that was funny
I loved the style. That was sweet. Really funny, the only thing I didn't like was the ending. Coulda been funnier. I really loved that tho, good job.
Where to begin...
I really dunno how to critisize this, like were you actually going for a proper full lenght movie, or just something that could be watched on Newgrounds, cos I really hope you don't ever expect people to buy this. It was just so rushed looking and lazy, literally every shot looked like it was done in 5 minutes, I know it most likely wasn't but fuck man, if you were going for a proper movie those backgrounds wouldn't be approved for some of the worst shows you see on TV today. The backgrounds were seriously the worst thing about this, Nothing had depth, they all looked horribly 2D, and the random assed radials (as usual) didn't help. NOTHING was shaded properly, just horrible radials that never suited. You have improved, but so slightly that you could barely even tell. The backgrounds were awful. but man I'm only getting started.
You reused explosions from that Transformers thing you did ages ago. I have done stuff like that before, explosions are fucking hard to pull off, but it didn't look good in TF and it certainly didn't look good in this. You coulda spent more time making something that looked better or even added to the old ones.
What I never understood about these is why did you create new characters for the rangers, and gave them new names, but kept zordon the same, kept lord zetts name but gave him gay blue yu-gi-oh hair and a stupid white face. It's all over the place. Why did that witchy looking bitch from power rangers get replaced with a random Anime Cat eared nobody. I just really don't get it, is it an inside joke? Cos I don't see the point, I think referencing the actual characters from the movie would have been better, also why did you rename Ivan Ooze Even Splooge, when you kept zordon and lord zetts names.
Why new rangers, when Lord Zet and Zordon are the same? I'm seriously confused.
Those giant cock and pussy monsters, are you kidding me.
Any jokes that COULD have been good either went on WAY to long or were just forced, really forced. Especially the giant dick rock in the distance joke. I cringed. Don't be so in your face with jokes, try and make them unpredictable.
Once again, no improvement in lip syncing. You get the basic shapes right but the timing is contantly off. You should probably try different camera angles too.
The sound was constantly changing quality, each voice actor had a different mic, fair enough, but you could especially hear the difference in their enviroment, if you added slight reverb to everyones voice there might have been some consistancy going. I mean whoever played the black guy step back from the fucking mic geez.
Last thing that irrated me was evan splooges EVIL SPEECH about how this movie was just one big huge sex joke. I wouldn't have minded but it too was rather forced, making me thing "fuck man did Kirbopher only realise at the end that this movie is only sex jokes and now is he trying to find a way to make it seem clever?" I know this is shitty to read but there is no way you'll ever improve if you don't take critisism. The only reason I spent my time writing this is cos I can see potential. Just keep practising bud.
Sex jokes ending?
Black Guys voice
Hot damn man it's like twice as bad as the last. I basically told you everything that needed improving last time, what really got on my nerves this time was the sound. That annoying kids coice is COMPLETELY different to the last episode, it sounds like a completely different actor. Not that the old voice was good or anything, but this one was terrible. That whole 'YEAH YEAH' thing was horribly forced, why can't that kid show some goddamn emotion. He just stares slightly to his side the whole time and says everything in a drone.
The music was fine, no complaints, but it was totally lacking in sound effects, any SFX that were there seemed way to distant. The characters still sounded like they were standing in a closet, you should learn to add reverb. The scene with the newsman confused me at first, cos it didn't seem like the sound was coming from a TV. Just use a high filter pass in audacity man I don't know...
The opening fights cene could have been WAY better. The animation was fucking awesome, top notch, but the scene seemed really empty, like the camera was always static, since action packed shit was going on you coulda zoomed, panned or shook it up a bit, that can really add. Also I noticed when Neenja was running at one point, his legs were all sketchy and the outline was brown, as opposed to the rest of his, which was black. Also when Neenja was drunk he sat there perfectly still with a retarded face. He coulda been falling all over the place, you know, like a drunk.
That's all my gripes with this, you can do better sir!
That was fucking epic.
That was really interesting. I loved the effects and the whole epic effect. The design of everything was awesome, lovely color and animation. You make tweens look so natural. The only reason for the negative 2 was rehashing the same walk cycle over and over, but it wasn't that annoying. Well done.
I didn't care for the backgrounds, most of the time was just a pale solid blue for a BG, kind of an unattractive color. A lot of the characters body parts looked mega rushed, when flash points to the kid asking for the phone it looked pretty shabby, the pose, the anatomy, and the line quality. The lip sync was dreadful, you literally can't have put any effort into that, I saw V and F mouth shapes in sentences where they weren't even saying anything like that at all, learn the basic mouth shapes and actually time them. Don't just draw random mouth shapes and hope for the best. The humor wasn't there at all, the whole idea has already been done at least twice... very recently. 2 things that really irritated me was how little research you did for the flash. He looks absolutely nothing like that, also when steve jobs laughs he just stands there static and sound comes out, not effective at all. I know this seems really harsh but its the only way you can ever really drive yourself to improve, if you listen to all the little kids giving you 10's you aint gonna get better, good luck.
Thanks Oney - I see and understand your points. This animation was not meant to be a great masterpiece. You are probably right and I should have taken a bit more time on parts - even I admit that. The point was just to get a short joke out in a short time. I realize this joke isn't new, but I tried to give it my own take and style.
As far as Flash Character Design - I just did a simple design. I know how the Flash looks this was done on purpose. I just gave him simple features and its fun to animate this way. Plus to each his own right?
I think I did a decent job getting the joke out in this animation. Not great by any means, but fair enough to say it works as is.
Thank you for taking the time to give criticisms - I will take these into account for future... Now get your ass to making Leo and Satan III !!!!!
Audio is great
Everything else is pretty awful, humor, animation, story, lip sync, basic anatomy? Get some life drawing classes man at least learn the basic structure of a human body, they look like something a 4 year old would make with some play do.
Also why make up counter parts for all these game characters like plumber Pete? You don't intend to try and sell this do you?
