very much like a thinking man's (or woman's) k911
Sean, you've been my brother for I don't know how long, but I won't let that influence my opinion of this piece of work.
Speaking of being brothers, have you talked to Mom lately? It seems she's cooking up some sort of stew... eggplant stew. Literally. No, just kidding.
I will preface this review with an important point: even though Newgrounds users never fail to surprise even hardened cynics like ourselves, when it comes right down to it we don't expect anything of them, and so the other reviews (almost all of them, it would seem) should, upon my (certified) recommendation, be disregarded completely.
Now on to my actual review. Brilliant! Sean, something you may or may not realize that you have is an absolutely dead-on sense of timing. And you can't buy a sense of timing, you know? Sense of timing is EVERYTHING. Although I think I secretly wish you had made the flower scene a little bit longer (maybe even a little abstract...but hey, now I'm just getting crazy), the fact is that it flows perfectly. It's the little things that I really notice, like the way the music starts a bit before the change of scene. You have an instinct for these things, and look, my friend, you're still young, so life can only get better.
Incidentally (or perhaps not so incidentally), I'm not sure who you got to do the voices, but he did a very good job.
It goes fast, and warrants repeated viewings. It points to the inevitability of our estrangement from everything that is considered 'normal.' Is anyone actually normal? In the beginning he's escaping, but has anything changed by the end? He's still escaping, this time to the moon! I guess my question is: is there no escape from escape in this life? Perhaps not, or perhaps it lies outside the reach of the average mod. But no matter what the answer may be, I know I'll be contemplating it heavily this eve, owing to the intellectual stimulation provided by this piece.
To quote a very old saying: "Sleep tight, mates, in your quilted Chambray nightshirts."
Oh, Jesus. Jesus.
What am I doing on this site? I don't think I've ever seen a more cringe-worthy flash in my entire life, I'm not kidding. I'll spare you the Oasis rant, but good GOD. I mean I could almost laugh at some pseudo-anime hero, with his sword in the ground and cape blowing in the wind, dramatically singing a fucking Oasis song, but what I'd rather do is just run. What I'd rather do is run away from a world where this monstrosity of absurd pretentiousness is being praised by anyone.
This is, without a doubt, the greatest thing ever to grace Newgrounds.
I suppose I never could have expected the sequal to live up to its masterful predecessor, but nevertheless I went into this movie hoping for it. However, it lacks the unique touch of the original that caused it to dazzle audiences worldwide. Even so, it's better than most movies.
You address an important issue
I've always wondered what would happen if Bruce Willis caught on fire.
You clearly put a lot of effort into this movie, which is excellent. It was a tad weird, I have to say. I thought the commercial on the TV about attaching the arm to the body was funny.
That was quite something
I thoroughly enjoyed your movie. It managed to be profound and funny at the very same time. Either one of those qualities is hard to find, so this movie is doubly awesome. Well done.
in a way,i think i was influenced by your work. ever since i saw 'i dreamt of a wizard' i've been taken by the idea of randomness.
I love this kind of movie. Pure creativity, not derivative crap. It's good to see once in a while.
Now I've seen some witty jests in my day, but my GOODNESS! That was witty to the max. It was well-done, too. How DO you do it, my friend? That's the question all of Hollywood is asking. Really, that was excellent fun for the whole family.
Oh my goodness
That alligator scene was brilliant. Whoever thought of that is very clever.
