Very funny, but it also is a nice parable. A man in a tale spin, like the teenage drop out trying to make his way through the world with half an education, his body addicted to the pharmaceutical highs available to him, has to this stand on his own with his shattered confidence and somehow right his way when almost everything says he won't.
...but horrible plot. This is quite possible the most melodramatic thing I have ever seen in my entire life. All that was missing was the cast from Rent and maybe a crack-addicted cancer baby with MS. Add in those, and it might make it into the Guinness Book of World Records.
Again, great animation, but how am I supposed to bond to two characters that I've just met and even care about their connected past? The answer, at least for you, is to saddle them with an over-abundance of cliche's and self-deprecations. "I must tell you...no, I can't tell you..." By that point, I don't even want to know.
I laugh everytime I read a review about how this video somehow tainted your first, as if the first were some piece of aggrandized art. I'd wager that many of them own a complete set of Kevin Smith movies, despite the fact that he supposedly sold out after "Clerks."
I laugh harder at the people who insult you, or decry your commercialism. Indeed, if anything, they are only helping you. Every bitter monomaniac who comes back to offer a negative review or lower your rating is ensuring that you get the publicity you deserve.
This is a spectatcular piece of work. Take that money you've put together and keep making more. I'll be watching.
I've never seen IZ; but on it's own, this was quite entertaining.
If it takes a couple coffee mugs and some aprons to keep this series in the black, so be it. All the power to him. In fact, the designs for those shirts are more appealing than most of the flash based merchandise I've seen. Tres chic.
Keep it up.
i dug it
having lisa's legs kick the theme to excitebike...you can't top that.
i'm glad you tried, but you didn't have a chance.
i've waited until your rating has gone down to add my review. i've noticed that your last 3 brankenwood stories ended with a rating of 4.24 when they are all seperately, and collectively, the best flashes on this site. They always start with a high rating, as this one did, but slowly erode away when the more immature and pety visitors have their say.
If anything deserved a perfect 5, it would be your animations. in a word, they are flawless. my only suggestion would be to throw an anime cloud shaped like an unnamed pokemon trainer. maybe then you could get the little dweeb vote. if that doesn't work, try having your characters crap dragonballs...dragonballs that cut themselves because people don't understand them. that would help with the emo vote.
and if all that still doesn't get you your five, try throwing a random insult to ebaumsworld in there. that should put you over the top.
thanks for suggestions :P
and thanks for reviewing.. glad you like my stuff!
yeah, you got a 5 for the jeff speakman joke alone.
it's not just the font.
I don't know if you speak english as a first language, but the spelling and grammar is horrible in this. It's a shame that you'd put that much effort into the animation, just to half-ass the dialogue.
I'd suggest you run it through a spellcheck before typing it in, or at the least have someone proofread it before you submit it.
ok men.....all i got to say.
''takes a dep breath''
I LOVE YOU 2!!! =D
haha, guess what
i don't care. let ebaums rip off every freakin' site. i don't care. Let them steal videos from all over the net. i don't care.
all i learn from these flashes is that there are a lot of whiney kids at somethingawful, who spend each day complaining about being cheated instead of actually trying to make the site better.
if i want to see photoshop work i go to worth1000, for videos i check out timekiller, ebaums, and google video. For flash work i go here and if i want to read funny articles i go to ubersite.
I don't give a crap about somethingawful. don't waste your energy on this garbage.
