Super Smash Super Smash

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Animation is perfect. Music is wonderful. But...

It lacks sound effects, and sound makes the movie. Even many music videos make light use of sound effects. By electing not to use any, this animation seems rough, incomplete, and to be honest, it's even a little boring. You're talented and you'll do very well, but only if you finish your projects. You can have a lot of sound effects and still keep the focus on your soundtrack choices. For your next project I recommend adding sound to keep your animations from feeling repetitive and bland. There's an excellent project buried in here, though, make no mistake of it.

The only other criticism I can levy is that your brilliant frame-by-frame was marred by the occasional and obvious use of tweens, object stretching, and so forth. Maybe there's a better way to mask them.



War, Snow and Fire War, Snow and Fire

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Decent.

I'm not going to repeat everyone by praising you, so just assume it from my rating. That said, I would like to give some serious constructive criticism.

I've noticed a rising trend of 'music video'-type animations that use one music track set to an animation. This is beginning to become irksome, especially with animations that have great potential like yours. Sound effects seem to be a thing of the past, and they really should not be.

You can have the music be a focal point of the animation without it being overpowering. Watch some full movie trailers - you'll see that they integrate the movie, music, and sound effects to draw you into them. This animation lacked drive, it lacked intensity, because there was no sound track to speak of. When cannons fired, there was no explosion. When dragons spewed fire, there was not a sound. And that, for me, makes it very hard to immerse myself in an animation and accept its characters and story.

So I found this movie lacking, unfortunately, and believe it is overrated. It could be much more if it didn't hold itself back as it does.



Saturday Morning Watchmen Saturday Morning Watchmen

Rated 5 / 5 stars

That was fucking awesome.

I mean, like, imagine that two rockin' naked lesbians jump on top of each other and start playing tonsil hockey while gyrating and groping. Outside the window, there's a fucking Tyrannosaurus Rex climbing into a Panzer tank which is mounted on the side of a nuclear submarine. Now, simultaneously, there's a meteor the size of Wisconsin plummeting toward Earth. This meteor is made solely of compressed G.I. Joe action figures. The Tyrannosaurus Rex drives his tank off the side of the nuclear submarine onto the lesbian lovers, the meteor crashes into the Tyrannosaurus Rex, and when they all implode, they vaporize every known copy of Indiana Jones 4 on the planet. Then Captain Planet is summoned.

That would be approximately three percent as awesome as this animation.

Fatamari Fatamari

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

How the hell did you manage that!?

By 'that', I mean getting everything to stick on the guy just like in Katamari Damacy. That just blows me away. I had NO IDEA that could be done in Flash.

The reason why this gets a lower score, though, is because it was far too short. Add more levels and make the area boundary a little less bizarre somehow.

Corpses of the III Reich Corpses of the III Reich

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very nice.

I'm rather glad that I didn't have the volume on, though. I absolutely HATE when those zombie heads pop up in half of every animation on the internet--they're more prolific than Chuck Norris himself--but in this case, it worked wonders. I was confused at first and thought that I had died or something, but then realized that it was just a random occurrence. The game actually didn't scare me, but I'll admit that even the soundless head startled me once.

As for the whole Nazombi thing, I don't see why everyone's offended. If Medal of Honor can get away with killing Nazis and Resident Evil can get away with killing zombies, then why not a dash of both? I for one thought the idea was, if not absolutely fresh and new, at least entertaining.

Gameplay--nicely done. I don't get what took everyone so long about the first level, though. I died once and then realized it. It's a solid platformer, but one thing bothered me. I think that taking such heavy damage from short falls is a definite minus for the game. Also, the ability to shoot while jumping would have been appreciated.

All in all, it was a Castlevania-esque shooting spree. I liked it. Good show.

Dexter - Blood Theme (8bit) Dexter - Blood Theme (8bit)

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

This is great!

Love it. Season 5 starts in a few weeks, can't wait for it! Anyway, this makes me really wish there was a LucasArts-esque point-and-click adventure game based on Dexter.

Intergalactic Conquest Intergalactic Conquest

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

There are not enough Fire Emblem remixes around.

Glad to see one, although your instrument choice and title are a little off. I don't see the galactic part so much, just sounds like a warped Fire Emblem. Did you go straight from the MIDI or put in all the notes yourself? It sounds pretty faithful.



Mission to Deep Space Mission to Deep Space

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Still my top choice from the entire portal.

I really don't understand why this isn't higher. It's simply one of the best remixes to be found on this site. Perhaps Valkyrie Profile is too unknown or perhaps this is one of many victims of the legions of trolls who vote zero on everything. Whatever the case, know that you've done something special with this track, something I find in regrettably few remixes and original songs in general.
