Not only does the movie I recommended get featured (TV Licker), but one of my animations does too! You've just made my day, Tom!

I'll be sure to watch these.

Experimental:
My vote is for Rolling Along, but I also enjoyed Silence World and The West.

WTF:
Tom this is probably the most pathetic gathering of animations I have ever seen, I mean really? There are alot of WHAT THE FUCKKKK movies out there with alot more potential or comedy than these, that being said... The Library Party was by far the best in this category.

Also, I hope you don't think we aren't watching all the videos just because their not all getting a personal review. Speaking for myself I've been watching them all before voting.

The Library Party. Cause although simple, I never saw such an approach to parody on Newgrounds before.

Here's my reviews for Experimental.
I'll be reviewing the WTF section later.

  • Velocity
    Velocity by flashcan2

Velocity is a movie limited in colors, which I think is pretty stylish. Its really well animated, awesome frame by frame work. It tells a pretty heartbreaking story although I must say it is kind of tedious.
6/10

A Great Big Tree is very experimental. The music was a good pick, rather artistic. It was all portrayed to be dramatic and so the simple ending didn't really cut it for me. Haha cut it, get it? GET IT?! ...yeah.
7/10

Silence world is another movie that uses few colors. It takes a long intro along the buildup of a classical song, then suddenly starts to get interesting. It's pretty mesmerizing but the ending could have been a lot better as the perspective is off quite a bit. Very artistic flash nonetheless.
8/10

  • Ambition

Ambition is an artistic looping flash with a rough animation style. Things that make no sense when you watch it for the first time, suddenly start making sense once the animation loops to the beginning again. It's great.
10/10

  • T.V. Licker

T.V. Licker is a regular flash + pixelation crossover. It involves a lot of artisticly deformed creatures, very creative! Then again I must say this animation is rather creative in overall.
7/10

an29 is nice. As the music starts off, I imediately take a liking to this animation. It's laid back with an optimtic atmosphere. This flash is incredibly experimenal, but far from glitchy. To me it seems this flash is meant to make people feel relaxed.
9/10

Shut It Down was animated using only white, black and pink. It is a really nice and stylish combination. There's a lot of glitchy shapeshifting going on here. I guess you could say it takes a boring scene and turns it into something interesting. Nice use of audio too.
9/10

Rolling Along is a very original idea. It's interesting to see a ball being beaten around the screen by lines that keep popping up everywhere. I see wasted potential in this though. This would have been amazing with the right use of colors.
6/10

  • Turista

Turista starts off with some awesome graphics. After that it became a slideshow of pictures. It's not a regular slideshow though. It's much like a documontary and involves a few awesome scenes done in flash aswel. And these scenes are tv quality. The music was a good pick to go with this. It was more interesting than I thought it would be.
8/10

  • The West
    The West by RedHotPoker

The West is an experimental piece about bountyhunting in a futuristic environment. It has a nice style, but I had problems understanding what was going on when I checked it the first time. Pretty cool ending I guess.
7/10

Woo, looks nice. :P

As for the flash, Velocity was my favorite, felt a bit deeper than the rest of them, or not, still the one that claims my soul in whole control devouring thought like cotton caught in big nest spun my fiction done. Hehe, all we're great animations... except for the latter WTFs though, inspiring and creative stuff.
