All I have to say is...
That's.. it? I mean, it was pretty well-done for the most part -- great voice acting and decent animation; but it simply wasn't funny. It felt like it was building up to something really funny, but just sort of ended abruptly. Nice try, I suppose.
I mean, I suppose the animation was alright but for the credit given I can say this is anything but intriguing. I found the audio to be extremely irritating; and when watching a flash the sound is genuinely a large chunk of the experience so I am MORE than willing to give you a bad score partially based on this.
I've got to admit I was thoroughly entertained for the entire duration of this movie. A lot of flash films move to slowly, and I felt this one went along quite smoothly. The jokes weren't off-my-seat hilarious, but they were amusing. I felt humored, perhaps even smirked a few times -- what a good, entertaining flash movie should do. The animation wasn't the absolute best, but it was aesthetically pleasing and above all it was clean. No rough, quick, cheapened animation was noticed in the long run -- I felt that what I was watching had a generous amount of effort poured into it.
The sound effects, voice acting, music, etc. was never too quiet or too loud -- it was clear and pleasing to listen to. The music faded in and out appropriately and the sound effects felt natural, not tossed in awkwardly. I am especially intrigued by the volume of custom music added to this film; it makes the film much more unique and original overall based solely on that fact. In my opinion, unless for the purpose of a parody, artists should stray away from using unoriginal (especially well-known) tracks -- it cheapens your experience, somewhat to the degree of adding in bitmap photos (like a famous celebrity, for example) instead of drawing your own rendition.
This is overall a very well-made movie, I know you put a lot of work into this and it shows. I'll end this review in saying: keep up the good work.
Good animation; but not very amusing.
Mildly entertaining? That's the only 1-line sum-up I felt from this otherwise mediocre flash. You did capture a small chunk of Newground's feel no doubt but there was numerous problems with it. Not only did you seem to leave out a massive TSUNAMI of the most epic newgrounds content, I can forgive that because you would probably need an hour-long video of 3-second clips to fill that void; but you seem to resort to constant penis-jokes (I'm aware penises are highly favorable by Newgrounds goers, but seriously; come on.) and a few 4chan memes. It's as if you honestly COULDN'T think of anything else! Why the hell would you include specific non-newgrounds content (Over Nine-thousand, Shoop De Whoop; just to name a couple) in addition to filler in an already short and limited film? I could see if the flash was 10MB long and you added some bits and pieces here and there, but the flash was incredibly short to boot!
In short, the flash honestly wasn't that funny. To someone who's been around NG for years, they'd think it was a dried-up turd baking in the sun; and to someone who hasn't been here for more than a few weeks, they wouldn't get the majority of jokes. The video appeals to no audience other than a braindead idiot who would laugh at just about anything (no offense, 97% of newgrounds users!). Since the animation is for comedy purposes, I am judging based off of humor, nothing else. 4/10; and I'm being awfully lenient.
The animation, however, was pleasing. Fast-paced and, although sloppy, entertaining to watch. The music fit well and was a good choice in my opinion. I must say keep up the good work animating; although I am not sure if humor is really your specialty.
Volume killed it.
For even the tiny, remote amount of hilarity this might have held was lost by the fucking sound effects being so god damn loud. It's like, hey, butts. I guess that might be kind of funny -- but no, I get plastered with an ultrasonic blast of fail.
Not really Madness 'Style'
Although great animation, the style in which was presented didn't feel enough like madness. Not because of the art style, not due to the more 3D aspect, but because it just didn't have the same feel for me; it was lacking somewhere. With that left out, there is still that awful background music. Madness should never have anything other than electronic, non-lyrical, nonsensical murdering music; not this bull crap you've forced me to listen to. Either way this was an excellent flash, and deserves the credit it's been given.
I'm going to go try this out now. I think it's actually not just a "lazy and quick way to make hentai"; it's actually quite the learning experience. Doing this more and more will allow you to get a better idea of how the body looks for inexperienced artists, and with enough invested time you can probably make some pretty decent-looking hentai.
Also, I generally have trouble with bodies but I'm pretty sufficient with heads. Hopefully these traces will help me.
Good, but could it have been better?
This particular song just wasn't that catchy, especially compared to Magical Trevor or Owls. Most of your loops I can sit down and listen to over and over for a long time, but I honestly got rather sick of this one after a few repeats. The animation, however, was amazing -- even when compared to your other flashes.
The animation was good...
Sadly, however, the rest of the flash lacked big time. In general, this was worth a mild smirk at most, but hardly a laugh; the humor was way off. The sound was god awful, and the voice acting was crap. No, the voices weren't the "It's so bad it's hilarious" level of bad, they were just plain bad. I can tell you were aiming for the "it's so bad I rofl'd" sense of humor, but you just don't quite have it down.
I was impressed by the drawings and such, those were definitely done well, but if the voices were more well done and you just had a better sense of humor, this would be a worthwhile flash.
In my opinion, this is so far the best episode of weRbopbop to date! I didn't stop laughing the entire episode. Keep up the good work, I really look forward to each episode.
