heard it before but still ok
i've heard the "i'm batman" joke before so most of the flash wasn't that funny. you turned it around though with the ending.
"what's with these ducks!?"
lol great line. haven't watched a funny flash in a while so i'm glad i watched this one first hahah. more drunk science!
"he was dead all along!" lol. classic.
this must have taken you forever. i commend you on your will to finish a flash animation of this length. i know i can't go past a month working on any one of mine without giving up on it.
- the music was great. i thought your choices fit very well with their scenes. i was kinda hoping there would be more narration, though. you had some in the beginning and at the end but putting some in the middle would have made it more consistent and would have brought out the characters more, imo. since the quality wasn't at it's best, i think some narration could fill in what we might overlook. for example, when the inventor's dog died, i thought he moved on rather quick. i thought some narration would have been good to describe some of his emotions to really drag out the sadness of the scene.
- the animation was pretty good considering how long this thing is. nothing really stood out though. it was just good enough to tell the story.
- the story itself was good but also a bit disappointing. personally, it bothered me that the story lacked a character to really hate. the inventor was looking to be this character but then he goes and shows us his soft side with the dog scene (one of my favorite parts, btw) and also gives lucy new arms and the toy shop. with the inventor being both evil and nice, i think it took away the possible emotional build up for when lucy finally escapes his hold on her. but the story takes an unexpected turn with him leaving everything to her so it kinda dampens the satisfaction of her freedom at the end a bit.
overall, this was a good animation but i thought it could have been more powerful than it was.
i'm not into narration. I prefer to tell the story through actions. Cinematic story telling. Not a story book.
"i thought he moved on rather quick."
It was a jump cut. but my fault for having someone feel he moved on too quick.
Narration someones emotions, sorry, i' don't think i'll ever do that. Aint my style.
I agree, the story is disappointing. Basicaly, all the characters in here are "fake", they're not genuine. I need to live life more before I can have genuine stories. Interesting point of view, about dampening satisfaction. but i prefer to attempt character growth.
"it could have been more powerful than it was."
Times 1 million
i don't get it since i've never played earthbound but the animation was top notch. how did you do the backgrounds? did you do them in photoshop? nice work.
I wrote it in the credits:

there's this quote i heard before and it goes along the lines of "nothing is indestructible because you can always use something against itself." anyway, i really like how the character solved his problem using the alien and his ship. i thought it was really clever. the art and animation style was pretty good. like an earlier review, it reminded me of samurai jack because of the absence of outlines and even the slashes on the black background. great stuff.
not really a fan of mindless violence (not anymore, anyway) but it was alright. when the message to wear life jackets showed up, i thought you were going to show all the scenes again with the guys wearing the jackets and they somehow survive their ordeal in a ridiculous way.
if you're still looking for an audio editing program, google Audacity. it's free and pretty solid.
this is the most stupid flash i've seen today...
...but i mean that in a good way. i was getting ready click the zero but it got a chuckle outta me so it'd be wrong for me to blam it. you win for now.
more beautiful than before
i've always loved your backgrounds. they're gorgeous. anyway, i wasn't a fan of bitey til now. i always thought he was a big douche but now i see there's a good reason for that. for the narration, i'm on the fence about it. i liked it the way it was with the previous brackenwood movies but then again it would've been difficult to tell bitey's back story with only visuals. but whatever. i'll be looking forward to more of bitey's story!
i really liked the idea just because it was so ridiculous. i was hoping they would get into a melee fight with snow cover knives and axes lol.
