Santa Sells Out Santa Sells Out

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Cute!

I really liked the character designs, especially Santa. That was a very cute submission, and funny too.



uoyuo uoyuo

Rated 2 / 5 stars

Cut to the chase...

Hmm, I liked the random bits, but if you want to make a good PSA, it would probably be better if you got to the point faster. You don't need to dwell on th random stuff for so long - the humor is apparent after a few seconds. After a while, it starts to get a bit old. Nice effort, though. I liked the music and audio from Shaun of the Dead.



Schiavo's Secret Schiavo's Secret

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Effective parody

The release of this exactly on the day of her death was bad luck, but that said, it was a funny parallel to draw between Terri's parents trying to convince the world that there was still something left of her left to save, and a construction worker trying to prove that the frog he found can sing and dance. So, clever idea, but unlucky release date. Even so, this is the sort of political/current events parody I like to see. Nice job in that respect, and additional kudos for completing something like this so quickly. That takes talent.



Grim Reaper Show 5 Grim Reaper Show 5

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Hilarious!

It's good to see another Grim Reaper animation, as it's one of my favorite series. Ol' Grim has such a great, casual, easygoing decorum as he comes to shuffle you off the mortal coil. Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen a portrayal of Death I've liked better. So, another great animation. I especially liked the way the Reaper acknowledged the "Elder Gods." Nice one!



Hyperboy: Episode 3 Hyperboy: Episode 3

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Good Series!

Glad to see another episode in this series. It's really a fun show. Keep up the good work!



Proto Proto

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Fun movie!

Very good movie. I liked the way you crammed Proto's "destroyer of worlds" persona into a small, monotone, harmless-looking robotic shell. It really is fun to see something so unassuming kicking so much ass!

On a technical level, the animation was slick and smooth and fit in very nicely with the robotic theme. As others have said, the sound effects were superbly used, and the dark neo-gothic choral music did a good job of adding to the apocalyptic actions of Proto. Where was that music from, by the way? I know I've heard it somewhere before...

Anyway, excellent job. I'm eagerly awaiting Proto's return.



German webcomic funtime! German webcomic funtime!

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Lustig!

That was funny, I liked the humorous reading and the overall style of the piece. Although, doesn't 'planlos' actually mean 'aimless' in English?


Renshu responds:

Hey! You might be on to something. The webcomic I got it from is about a couple of elves who got lost from the other elves after they sailed away from Middle Earth, as the english translation of the comic seems to describe... They could be aimlessly wandering because of it. (I'm glad so many people know German better than me.)


The Enemy Within (old) The Enemy Within (old)

Rated 4 / 5 stars

A good sprite movie

The animtion was for the most part fluid and the characters were expressive enough for what their little pixel-y faces would allow. What I really liked about this the most was the cinematic style involved. Those slow-motion bits generally looked pretty cool, especially that brief cutaway to the 3D mario during that one scene. The only thing I think I was dissatisfied with was the abrupt ending. Otherwise, nicely done.



The Takamori Legend The Takamori Legend

Rated 5 / 5 stars

...

That was quite possibly the best animated flash film I've ever seen! Stylistically it was amazing, the sound was very well coordinated and the introductory information added to the film. And the artwork was absolutely perfect! That it was all drawn with a mouse is a great credit to your artistry. Surely, this is one of the greatest films to ever grace Newgrounds. I applaud you!



The Puppet The Puppet

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Well animated

The idea of something unusual knifing somebody up is a little bit cliched, though. I think it would be more interesting if the puppet at least had a motive for killing everybody - maybe the kid treated him badly? It's something to consider - maybe if you make a sequel you could add a backstory.

Other than that, it was well animated. I liked the way the puppet wiggled its limbs - it was cute even until he pulled out the knife - and there was a manic energy throughout that was fun to watch. I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel, as long as it's not more of the same.
