10/10

That was very funny indeed!
Pretty Good animation too.
It's primary focus of comedy is the use of awkward situations and over all funny ideas.
All of which is relatable and understandable.
I always thought those guys with "BIG" chins could very well poop from them.
They do indeed look like butts!
But what I laughed at most was the dialogue and the clever timing.
Good one, very good.

6/10

Not the best animation skills demonstrated
Though it does have decent voice acting and a twisted story.
But the choppy animation, especially it being stick animation...
Just kinda throws me off the focus of the story.

8/10

At first I was thinking it was deep too...
But listening to the commentary...I thought...
HA - I know I was a victim of over thinking on a flash movie.
When in reality the artist just wanted to make something.
For no particular reason or goal.
This is a prime example of creating something simply because.
Very nice, but I feel the dream sequence could've been smoother animation.
That would've captured the audiences' eye of wonder and amazement.

8/10

The animation is just a notch short of being great.
Because it's just a loop of a walk used over and over.
Just being a 'tad' lazy.
Change the perspective to add drama.
Even if it is comedy, the perspective would add tension of excitement.
Using the same loop is just...'bland' after 1 minute.
However...
Good backgrounds
Good music
A great way to end the film.
But the laugh for me...was just a brief 'ha'.
Though some will react better.

10/10

Freaky Deaky and Morbid like shit!
In terms of it being gross, scary, frightening, and yet a little funny...
This flash earns top scores.
This is not my favorite kind of viewing mind you.
But it is incredibly profound.
And that's to be respected in its own way.
Though the animation is good...
The dialogue seemed to lag at some parts.
But still good.

7/10

Random
But there is such a thing as being structured in your random humor.
I could see what you were going for, but it wasn't the best.
Timing is a comedy thing. But your timing was just a little off.
I was only 'semi-amused'.

7/10

Not the best animation
Even if it was intended that way.
It felt the movement could've been smoother.
I do not understand the humor.
But apparently, some people below me do.
So it's decent I suppose.

8/10

Okay...that made me laugh :3
Unusual behavior is amusing if done correctly.
Pretty Good dude.

9/10

I wanna see this redone in better animation!
Cause this comedy concept is Hilarious!
The timing of the dialogue is perfect.
The voice acting is dead-on!
If only it was better animated.

10/10

How could I over look this!
I could totally see this as a series!
"I'm only 15 I havent hit puberty!"
Now that is an interesting concept for the development of video-game characters.
Please - Do another episode!

8/10

I enjoyed it somewhat.
It was well animated.
But with the intent to being funny...
I'm not sure.

7/10

I liked it when Jesus flipped them off and moon walked.
XD
But it could've been better animated.

9/10

Why didn't this make it in the "Clock Day" category!
Short and funny. Clean Cut too.
He wanted to date a 'raped ghost?'
Dats messed up.

Oh that would suck!
A demonstration of "cruel-comedy"
Not my cup of tea.
But funny all the same.
It was well smooth animation.
In this case, it had to be sticks for it to work.

I remember watching this!
F'ed up but hilarious!
Good animation, good style.
I especially like the details in the character designs.
But the audio was just a little off near the beginning.

10/10

That was perfect comedy!
I like the concept of the story.
The animation wasn't top notch but it looks good somehow.
It's almost "South Park"-ish.
Not a weak ending. A Good Ending
(Favorites)

8/10

Finish it dude!
It's not done yet!
I was looking forward to the end of it!
Now it just seems lingering.

Ah HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

So funny dude!

Funny!
But the voices need improvement.
Other than that it is a potential mini-series!

9/10

This is a potential community project for future..
it wasn't the best animation.
But if everyone submits a 'what would you do' submission...
Viola, a flash collab!

7/10

A little boring actually.
But the voices were well done.
And the animation was not that bad.
It's just, not really drawing me in you know?

Very Well animated...
but not all that funny to me.
It seems as though you made a few short-cuts here and there.
I think you were focused too much on details that you forgot the plot of the story.
But I am amazed by the detail. But all in perspective, it's a good flash.

6/10

meh.
A quick and weak laugh.
But it's not too well animated.
But it is that monty python style.
But at least it was well-detailed in spite of it's weak animation.
It's just okay.

8/10

Not the best animation...
Though a spoof of allot of energy drinks
This one did have some good dialogue

8/10

LOL
All that tension and they are actually roomates!
Too bad Halloween is past, that would've gotten some good responses.

6/10

sigh...just a little too long.
The story should move along just a bit faster you know?
It wasn't the best in my opinion.
But it does have potential.

8/10

But it just needs some improvement.
-A little better writing
-A little better voicing
-A little better animating
But in perspective, it has potential cause I like the characters.

6/10

A bit boring
But it is a worthy effort.
But I feel that 5-seconds isn't enough time.
Or rather it is a bit of a challenge to deliver humor that fast.
Perhaps 10 seconds would be better next time.

8/10

Interestingly enough, it was amusing.
In comparison to the other '5 second collab'
this one delivered quick punch-lines.
Funny.
Especially work by Neil Sanders

Took a while, but Ive watched them all. Here are my favourites:

1. Randomness isn't about silly words at unexpected times alone. It's about presentation, and this movie does it right. A great animation with apropriate voiceacting.

2. You've got to love how clever this animation is. It didn't have me laughing out loud, but it certainly had me put a smile on my face. It's not that great of an animation but the voiceacting's pretty good. I have a feeling many people will vote for this movie.

Wow, that´s A LOT! But they all really deserve to be entitled as gems. I watched everyone of them and those are the films I liked the most:

"Mikey's Show" because it reminded me of a cartoon david firth would do.

"Daydream +" entertained me well and showed of some animation skills too.

"Buns Of Steel" suffers from bad voice recording quality (like so many other films), but it was fun to watch and offered some cool random moments.

Oh, and "Sleep Time" is also worth a mention.

my fav would have to be "Pixel Monster", just because I liked how simple the animation was and yet how humorous the storyline was.

*disappointment*

There are multiple lists that are going to be made, so possibly that one might have been put on another list.

Also, that artist is pretty well known and has won some contests so not only is the flash submission underground, the artist usually has to be unknown as well.

Also, I thought this one was a just great. Should have been Quirky though.

Hey Tom is the 'game of the week' thing (I can't think of what to call it) going to stay the way it is?

I really like how it shows different flashes and it really spotlights things more than just putting them on the front page can.

Then again, that's what the front page is for, and if you want to put a game up there for a week to sell some ads, I'm fine with that; I just really like how it is now.

And I know this is too late, but I just came across this and it's a gem:

And here're my top 3 on that list:

3. http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/49 8267

Just a funny way to do something with a funny run cycle

2. http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/37 9490

I'd put this at #1 if it weren't for the fact that this idea has been played with a bit before, and the author's already had some recognition

1. http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/37 9935

It might be nonsensical and not animated too well, but I thought it was hilarious

hope that helps

There were a lot that stood out, I think "of Letters and Chains was excellent", have to say though my favourite was Daydream +, mainly due to the authors self commentary + interpretative dialouge on screen xD

Well my winner would be Corn or Of letters and chains Corn is totally random and can get some laughs, also i now see chain letters from a new perspective: The perspective of lulz.

Others that could aslo be the winner:

-Whatdoyouthinkofmydadnow - total random!
-The ceiling - stick comedy, best death evar, lol
-What would you do - Really good ideas, and ive never wondered any of these!
-Sleep time - a (probably) real story and kinda creepy. Lol

Good hunt everyone!

I have finished watching the list of general comedy
and have decided my vote. It was hard to choose a
favorite but I would have to say my favorite from
the list would have to be PIXEL MONSTER because
I found it to be very amusing and I can tell the artist
put a lot of time and effort into it.
