A Stunning Tale Which Will Be Retold For Centuries
At last, this pulchritudinous flash has come to fruition after all these long months. In all honesty I was beginning to think it would never be completed and ascend to its rightful place at the very peak of the NG top 50, yet it has! This is truly a day of celebration.
As for the flash itself, I especially adored the romantic tension you built between our protagonist Rob and the strong, yet feminine Christina. Their astonishing quest to put an end to their reptilian overlord's grip on the balls of mankind truly touched my soul and left me staggering on the edge of my seat throughout this brilliant fast-paced thrill-ride of a flash. I believe we can all take a lesson from this film, if you will, a lesson of the brutality of life and the wonder and magnificence of true and unfiltered love and affection. Rob and Diana truly are a match made in Heaven and the adventure they share is simply touching.
The characterization of Quaritizahn, our vicious, yet secretly sentimental reptilian king antagonist was shockingly well done. I nearly shed a tear as he mourned via his epic monologue whilst gazing over the grim horizon in the galactic palace above his luscious city.
But this flash is not without humor. Your portrayal of Barack Obama as a ninja-space-cowboy-megazord traveling back through time in order to save the Hindenburg was nothing less than a work of scriptwriting brilliance. Bravo! I'm not much of a man for political jokes - but when he socked the George Washington/Hitler/poltergeist/shark hybrid bear in the dick I could not help but emit a thunderous lol from the depths of my being.
All in all, every aspect of this masterwork comes together in a gourmet cuisine which the Flash community rarely sees outside of professional work. The story, the narration, the graphics, the music, the interactivity - a fine mesh of raw perfection.

One thing I think the viewer will fail to realize is how the archetypes in this movie are so important to symbolize the religious aspects of the characters roles. Christinia really is a scapegoat, such as Jesus Christ was in the bible. The way she sacrifices her life for the simple love of Rob and Diana is a writing work of art that I have to give credit to MercatorMap. The fact that the two actually die and go to heaven is brilliant in the way that the scapegoats effect is the exact opoosite of what is expected, and therefore quite ironic.
The reptile was a very interesting character, and I think your artistic portrayal of his wrinkled, stress filled face showed just how terrible he hated his role as a king. when he jumped off of that cliff as he realized his kingdom was crumbling before his very eyes, it was apparent that the crackling city represented the fate of him, and died just as he hit the wet ground below.
I am very sad that we had to include a n****r in this film, and wasnt very pleased with the fact that it was Obama, but as you said it added a nice comic relief. It was hilarious when he was killed with that shotgun, and really represents the true intentions of the South!
Grand Job Sh0t-D0wn, I think we really created a masterpiece here.
I don't even know what to say.
The only negative thing I could say about this flash would be that the drawings lacked a bit and looked sloppy. But looking back I actually think that made it funnier. Don't get me wrong, the art was fantastic. I just mean sloppy in the sense that the brush was jagged instead of smoothed over.
The frame rate could be boosted up a bit, and the animation a tad smoother; but other than that this flash was glorious.
I have to hand it to you though, I admire how you did the entire rap rather than just a segment; and I enjoyed your drawings of each Pokemon very much.
Keep up the good work.
The blatant fanboyism that's plaguing your score makes it even better, in a sad way.
Regardless, this was a very well done flash. The art (when the joke wasn't focused on a bad art style) was extremely well done, and the animation itself was smooth and humorous. Not to mention the excellent voice acting on all your parts.
What really made me chuckle, however, was the expressions in just about every segment, so well done to all of you.
Keep it up.
Every now and again you come across a flash that is just so... Out there. So strange that you just have to like it. Even if there's no plot, or anything.
This is defiantly one of those flashes.
The animation was choppy, yet I feel that the un-eaven sketchy... ness is what really put the "what the Hell" factor in here.
Not to mention the audio. The squeals, fuzz, and random spikes of sound truly gives this flash an atmosphere of which there is no other.
The characters even, with the huge hair and just the overall way you drew them fit in perfectly, as well as the use of real images for the horses.
Not bad for one hour
... but imagine what you could do in five? Or seven? Or even a week?
Your animation isn't bad, you have potential. All you need is more time put in.
Add some length, of course, and maybe an opponent? A lot of sound effects always makes physical stuff appeal a lot better too. And get rid of the audio, or change it to an actual song (Like a Kirby level).
Here's some tips
1. I like how the stick figures head wasn't coloured in, but when the knife skewers his head it just doesn't look good. Try coloring him in white and see if it looks a bit better.
2. Nice walk cycle, the only complaint I have there is that his back-stride didn't match up with his slow speed - but that doesn't really matter.
3. The trampoline didn't react when he hit it. Even small things like that can make a huge difference.
4. Try some dramatic music instead of waves passing by. I can see this as a big dramatic scene, followed by a record scratch when he hits the trampoline, and then maybe something even more random than a knife.
Anyway, keep practicing. Try adding some more atmosphere and length.
I see what you did there.
Well, your art is good - as usual - I still think you need a tablet though.
The audio wasn't bad - a bit distancey but not bad.
The only thing that could have been better is when the fat guy knocks the tray out of his hands, it just doesn't have that... KERPOW aspect to it. Add a sound effect and a blur to it maybe?
Anyway, good job. NOW MAKE MOAR.
Well, I can see you're (I'm guessing) new to flash - but not all that bad. The character is... Cute, but I think you could have done more with him. A tuxedo maybe? Something to make it more... Original.
Your movement is fairly well done, the main thing that would have made this better is music and better magic effects. Instead of just yellow squiggly lines try experimenting with some blur and glow filters. As for the music, something calm and relaxing would do this great justice.
I saw the preview you had of this a few months back - actually I was just thinking of that about about an hour ago... Weird. Anyway, brilliant! Very smooth, and an original twist to the Madness series.
I also lol'd when Dad made an appearance - bravo.
Thank you. Dad was essential for a logical but hilarious ending.
Brilliance! Brilliance I say! Your talent is simply astounding, well done on the animation! I laughed at the subliminal jokes (like the murder scene outline in the street), and lol'd at the Invader Zim reference - and I hardly ever laugh at flashes anymore. Keep up what your doing.
Again genius! I can't wait for part two.
