The Immigrant The Immigrant

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Didn't woo me.

Yeah it was alright. I don't know if your shooting for a series for mtv or just a one time deal. But I thought this wasn't as good as it should be. Know what I mean?

It was good, but not great. You can improve. Be glad you sent this to newgrounds.

Chicken tunafish gopher? Chicken tunafish gopher?

Rated 4 / 5 stars

It was cool but didnt make me laugh.

Though me not laughing doesn't make it a bad thing. I have nothing against loops or any thing of the like. But there is one thing I do have a problem with, this egotistic idea you have of "trying something new, and it's a silly idea," etc. I read some other reviews, and every time some one talked down on you, you basically hid behind the fact that you were trying something new. Cool man, you tried something new, you don't have to keep reminding us or try to give us a guilt trip by saying, "I'm sorry, I'll never try any thing new again." Like you said, language is powerful, but if you keep telling us something it's going to get old, and there my friend, is where the real repition is, not in the flash, but you. Now I know an author is going to defend his work, but by telling people their morons and that they can't spell or speak correctly isn't going to do any thing. I know you're not dumb, and I'm going to assume that every one else who reviewed this isn't dumb either, and seeing as how that is, they don't need to be told that they have a spelling/grammatical error. There's just something incidious about the way you're doing that, and it bugs me. You can keep doing that, I don't care, but I'm just saying that it's evident. But don't defend yourself by the faults of others, fixed your own faults, don't make excuses and use others as smoke and mirrors for your own escape.
Clever flash though. The gopher part is that only thing that didn't make sense, tuna is the chicken of the sea, the gopher needs a buddy. I did like your art. Good job.

Firstly, if you'd spent two hours typing replies to 'isn't this a bit like that badger song' I'm sure you would sound repetitive too.

Secondly, if you'd spent two hours typing replies to 'isn't this a bit like that badger song' I'm sure you would sound repetitive too. ;)

When a person wrote a serious piece of feedback, even if they didn't like my animation, I gave them a serious response. Equally, there are only so many ways that you can type 'I've responded to the reviews about the badger song in my comments on the page'. I assume that most people won't be going through all the feedback to the animation to find if they have had a response, but will simply check in their admin panel: they won't see that the response has been duplicated and they still get a reasonable answer to their review.

I take the accusation of copying very seriously, which is why I have emphasised that I was attempting to do some new things. Fritz Lang's 'Metropolis' and James Cameron's 'The Terminator' are basically the same idea, but they are treated in such a different manner that no one complains 'we've seen this before', so I find it frustrating that an animation in the same genre as a previous one gets accused of copying.

If you have a check back through the comments, on the few occasions where I have been stronger in my language I will use terms like 'makes you sound like an idiot'. The crucial words there are 'sound like'; I am not saying that these people are idiots, only that the way that they are writing inclines the reader to dismiss their observations. If you had written 'wtf dude u r crap y ru disin ppl fur not likkin ur sh1t' then I would not have given you this answer. People get the response that their reviews merit.

I know exactly the comment you are talking about when you write about me being picky and grammar and spelling, but if you have a look at it again, my final point was to try to encourage the person to work with their language so that in future they would be able to write more clearly on subjects that matter to them. I do not think that it is unreasonable to expect a 15 year-old to be able to spell 'tuna', especially when it is already displayed on the same page twice. I admit that perhaps I was a bit harsh, so you have fair reason to call me up on it, but I was genuinely trying to show the person how bad their writing is and to encourage them to work harder, for their own good. As you agreed, language is important, and that person will likely be hampered in later life unless they work harder on communicating more clearly.

I have made a fair attempt to respond to people's views. If those views are a repeat of someone else's then I will respond in the same manner, if those views are expressed without thought for clarity, with amateur dramatics (OMG! I want 2 shoot my PC!) then I will give them amateur dramatics back. Yes, that’s a bit petty, but I don’t see any reason to be polite and reasonable when the people reviewing my work have not been.

Thanks for your feedback. It's interesting to read something that has had some thought put into it. Also, I’m glad you like the animation. Sorry if you've found my attitude to some of the comments arrogant, but I spent over two hours replying to them and many of them were immensely arrogant, as if I owed them something. Eventually that attitude is going to annoy me! I put this up here for the free entertainment of others. If they were paying me for this then I could understand their levels of apoplexy, but as it is I find the apparent rage of complete strangers utterly baffling. It isn't the end of the world, and I think I have a fair point that people need to get their priorities straight when they act like it is. It's only an animation; if they don't like it then they can say so, and even more helpfully they could explain why. When people did this I gave them a good response. I'm not interested in approval, I'm interested in critique. You have given me some, and I thank you for that.

All the best,

Mata


Link vs Darklink Link vs Darklink

Rated 1 / 5 stars

Dude, its Link vs. Darklink, right?

What the hell just happened!? Darklink kind of dissapeared and turned into something completely irrelevant to Zelda, this looks like a freakin episode of some crazy anime that makes no sense, kind of like DBZ. what the hell? And after a half hour of link screaming because hes turning into light link or whatever got on my nerves. But then again, after writing all of that, I read your comment, and saw that you werent going for a true to the game feel, and I dig that, but it still made no sense at all.



Robenstein Robenstein

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Yeah, it was cooool... like a robot!

The graphics with cool, music was good, interesting style, did not get one bit of the story.

Other than that it was a thumb and 3/4's up.

Why isn't the conveyor bely all shiney!?? Shouldn't it be? I mean think about it, it's going through that machine that spiffs up the robots...

makes sense to me. If I were a clean robot Id be saying "Hey man, your belt is dirty!"

those graphics were tuff as nails.



The 5 Shades of Green The 5 Shades of Green

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Eh...

Here's the thing, some of the flash in this were great, like really good. But a couple of them just didn't make any sense and weren't very good. So in a way it was sweet, but in a way it was blah. I think you guys could have done with out some of the other flashes.
I did however liked your idea for the shades of green. TwinsenDude had by far the best animation in my personal opinion. I think he captured the idea of using green, and the clever title Fly very well. And what impressed me was how he used his 3d animation program. I don't know which one he used exactly, but making 3d animations like those are tough, and I am seriously impressed with how that came out. Good music too. A little weird though.

All in all that was cool.
Awesome Sauce.
Yeah, sadatay.
Cya.

Dumbass Dumbass Dance Dumbass Dumbass Dance

Rated 0.5 / 5 stars

Haha, you suck at this whole thing.

You're not trying to prove any thing. At first you were like 'man, this fat kid can make a crappy movie that gets front page, therefore i must prove that any fat kid can get front page." Fat people can be funny sometimes, but your not fat, thus leaving you humorless. I'm not sure but I think your intentions change during filming, cause I think you enjoyed dancing around to that song. Sucker.

Just because some one gets 15 of fame looking like a moron doesnt mean that 'the next guy' will get it. But in this case you were the next guy, and you got front page. Congrats. This wasn't even funny mainly because your trying to make fun of something that was all ready funny. I'm done writing.

you suck at dancing

So good, so good.

Yeaaaaah, that was sweet. Especially the end, it was... unexpected! It was like being kicked in the nuts really hard at the end of a movie. I think the quote was the best part of the movie, regardless [of what you think]! Thusly I say that was the rucking thit, thats right, the rucking thit. Good shizer!
