I will think of this submission every time I eat a pickle from now on. I will savor them.
Couldn't agree more.
I was pretty angry at first, sitting through what a clock called "the greatest video game movie ever!" and seeing some real shit on the screen... but then you got to your ending, and your point. And you're so right.
It seems every time I submit any of my games one (or two) of these crappy sprite movies (not much better than this one) is submitted the same day, and snags the top or top two spots, giving my game a third place and most likely meaning it gets ignored, because as long as you have a video game character in your movie, you automatically get a 4.0+ rating on this site.
Where did all these obsessed video game freaks with no taste come from? Look, I love those games too, I grew up with them, but that doesn't mean I automatically hump anything that has my favorite video game characters' faces on them. Aren't you guys the same people who rip on how terrible all these video game-based movies in Hollywood are? Those, at least, had a score of people spending a lot of time and effort on them. These sprite movies DON'T.
It'd be one thing if they managed to be witty or clever or satirical, but they all have silly stupid slapstick humor, or have them "dance" to crappy pop music, because you can't do too much with the sprite set for a character meant for video games (run, jump, fly, and fight, that's just about it).
So congrats on expressing what the quiet minority has been thinking. Maybe the right people will get the message and knock it off, or stop voting this shit up to first place all the time.
good lord this was a brilliant review, you've captured my thoughts exactly :')
...this was pretty horrible. I can respect the time you took to make the animation, but the humor just wasn't there, or perhaps just not my kind of humor. I really felt like my 5 minutes was wasted after watching that, and felt pretty angry that it was spent watching this.
It probably doesn't help that I'm tired of all these stupid sprite movies to begin with, though, and how they always seem win the Daily Feature and get front page, regardless of how good they are.
This is the greatest epic released so far in Newgrounds history, and it only wins Daily 5th. For shame, Newgrounders!
I loved this movie. It was very much worth the wait. Even the shoddy graphics adds to the charm, and allows you to spend more time making beautiful silky smooth animation and having lots and lots of exciting things happening onscreen at once.
You stretched Flash up to, and beyond, its limit. I don't think there's too many people out there who can honestly make that claim.
Well done! Can't wait for the next installment!
That was incredible. Very funny, very fast moving, retaining the classic clock theme without diving too deep into cliche-land, and a good send off to Turd :P. Amazing job.
That was really funny, and really well made. Good show.
That was pretty good, with a dash of awesome. Are you willing to take those tests now for realz? :P
LOK, you think Spiderman and Superman are real?
Could have been better...
... some parts were just extremely slow paced and had (excessively) lazy animation. Like several scenes where a character tweened across the scene for 30 seconds, or did the same 2 second looped animation 30 times before anything changed. And most of it wasn't very humorous, but the few scenes that were, were hilarious.
Loved the Clockcrew trailer where the scenes switched before anyone had a chance to say their full lines, and the "found anything yet" "we ain't found shit!" while digging through the box that said "Normal Cartoons" on the side, and when it said "starring Matlock" and showed his face pasted on a webcam video of some moron dancing like in the JUMP AROUND series.
The rest was just kinda "eh", though, besides a few of the scenes looking kinda cool (beginning and end of part 2 stick out). You probably could have easily cut out about 90 seconds of this and had a MUCH more entertaining movie.
Much <3 to BlueHippo though anyway :P.
Kawaii to the extreme! Good stuff.
The ending was a little abrupt though (at least the music transition was).
That was great!
I love this style of humor. The choppy voice acting was cool too.
