The best thing ever?
I would say so.
I was afraid
For my life
I shat myself making it.
You know what this needs
Trippy backgrounds, an elaborate UFO intro, NIN music, and 9 other authors.
no not really
Glad to see the new layout working quite well here.
Laughing my Ass Off
The flash itself was terrible, poor gradients, flashing letters, bad music.
It was the message that reached out to me. So what the KK has been dead for over a month? This flash captures the pissed of sentiment that the KK used to produce, and perpetuates it. Its like a time capsule.
Thank you, my friend, for this great bunch of memories.
You know, I dont know before this day, that KK is already Dead :D . Anyway, I really enjoy to do this crap because I hated all KK animations :) I tried to do it in some kind " KK " way and it looks that i done it right. Sorry 4 bad english XP
Sprite movies are shit, and this is a great piece of satire.
ugh, apparently someone's never watched the "super mario bros z" series. plebian!!!
Like I said earlier
This is a visual orgasm, and I'm glad sQueef linked me to it. Truely a masterpiece, and each individual part makes me want to disect it and find out how to recreate it. I honestly cannot find any flaws, because each part meshes in with the atmosphere, and shapes the beautiful figure of the flash. Great drawings, great effects, a truely unique animation.
Sprites like I have never seen before
Amazing use of unique custom sprites, and I must say, I have never seen Mario kick so much ass!!!
In one word: Annoying
Well its not really bad, but I would honestly not call it worth its hype. I think the word that best describes it is LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG.
Not just long, mind-numbingly long. Its like a fan-fiction gone wrong. Its like receiving brain surgery without anesthetic. I must say, to be able to cram all that pointless dialogue into a movie, and still classify it as action, is truly not what I would call it.
In fact I am sort of new to the SMBZ series. I steer clear of sprite movies, and they can suck or rock however much they want. Well I decided to step out of my comfort zone, and watch this movie. Well I must say, it was not terribly bad, but it was terribly boring.
I can see that you put some hard work into this (or I hope), considering how agonizingly drawn out the dialogue is.
But enough of the dialogue, I could go on for ages about how annoying the dialogue was, but on to the action. I am usually critical of sprite fights, because most often the author did not make the sprites, did not come up with the characters, did not make the backgrounds, etc. Well I cannot really make those assumptions. There are a few instances that looked like origional material. Although the 3d pipe was not what I call top notch animation, it was a nice touch of variety.
But lets get on to the use of sprites. Now I've already given part of this rant, but let me expand on it for you. The main reason being, all the reviews I have seen you make are for sprite movies. In addition, all of your movies are heavily related to video games. Now let me as you, is an origional concept really that hard? If you are such a great artist, as I'm told by the several reviewers already here, and hundreds more bound to come, can't you draw your own material throughout the movie? I mean, I cannot force you to move past video games, but can you at least put the effort that EgoRaptor does?
Which leads me to the humor. Now personally, I tried to read the dialogue, I honestly did, but it was just to painful. I couldn't bear to sit through it. But I did manage to catch a few snatches of it. Let me be the first on Newgrounds to say that 4chan jokes are not funny. They are used and recycled by people with none of their own sense of humor. There may be some of your fan base that loves this humor, hopefully they are not on NG, but using them just feels like a cheap ploy for laughs.
Let me move on to the plot. Actually, because I refuse to watch the rest of the SMBZ series, especially after this, I am not rightfully in a position to make a concise judgement, but may I say, What The Hell??? This brings me back to the description of it as a fan-fiction. All the video game characters together, thrown in with cameos, is this some ploy or am I missing out on something?
How about the sound. Well, while rapidly skipping through dialogue, waiting for something to happen, was annoying enough, It seemed you threw in random sound-effects too. Occasionally having my ears peirced with fake dialogue, hearing the same sound effect several times, was just plain sadistic on your part.
Now that we have gotten through the bulk of the content in this movie, let me move on to the action. The good part, the supposed meat of the movie. I must say, it wasn't to bad, but of course I could have watched an episode of Dragon Ball Z with more action. And then the characters would be drawn by hand. I guess thats the premise of the series: "Mario meets DragonBall Z". Yet instead of taking the good parts of the series and minimalizing the bad, you took the bad parts and minmalized the good. Bad parts: Overly long dialogue and common anime themes (See "How to succeed on Newgrounds" for what I mean). Good parts: fast paced action, interesting character design, and creative plots (to an extent of course).
In summary, it wasn't bad but there was plenty of steps you could have taken to make it better. Like take an axe to the majority of the dialogue, increase the amount of origional artwork, and find a more creative theme.
Upon the advice of 50vmp, I was going to spam your inbox with crappy flashes, but then I saw the due date and said "HSAFAFSFAFSFADA". So anyways, good stuff.
