I laughed, cried, smiled, wept and seethed in anger. The plot was just so gripping that I was sucked in and felt their emotions just so strongly. This animation deserves an oscar.

No I'm off to watch the Shawshank Redemption, a surely inferior story.

Snow Snow For Lucy
Just watched it for the first time and it was okay.
I don't really see what all the fuss was about to be honest though, it's good but the story goes too slowly at the beginning and far too slowly at the end. It felt rushed and not very well timed, I almost lost interest but it was quite a nice ending.

I know everyone's probably already seen it but what did everyone else think of it?

holy crap new PM features

go to your PM box. there's new features like a new symbol for new messages, a thing on the side that says "read," "unread," or "replied." and if you hover over the symbol by the subject line, you can change the icon that shows up.

also, for replying, instead of opening up a new window, a reply box fades in from the bottom. quite convenient, really.

Did not like. Not at all, in fact, i wrote a GLOWING 6/10 review and made several pleasant comments such as "lazy animator" and "getting way too much credit for way too little work"

Wait.. idk if i did write that, i wrote a good professional review, but idk i really feel that way :/

the movie was sappy and bland. When the girl ran back inside i was like "oh?" and then she was all "i forgive you!" and the dad was like "oh good! Im happy!" *dies*, completely ruined the movie for me. It would've been so much more powerful if she left, didn't come back, collapses in snow *shows scene of dad dying* show lucy almost dying, looks up, see's light, cue second part.

Not only that, but it was animated very poorly, not only re-using the same animations or character models repedatively, but sometimes even just taking models from past movies and re-colouring them! Then at other times Spike just zoomed the camera in on her face to demonstrate *taking off the arms*, or showing the sky for *fixing toy* and other things that would require actual animation. This was done A LOT.

One of my fav scenes was actuallly when the old man leans into lucy's face and you get a profile shot of both of their faces. Instead of having a decent shot with more than just their necks, spike just scaled the old mans head bigger to fill the screen so that he didn't have to show any torso. . .

ugh... sorry i'm just pissed at the loads of "OMG BEST MOVIE EVERRR!" comments being given to that movie. The only thing that i respected about the movie is the length, which was about 20 minutes. But even then, the movie was boring for about 19 of those minutes. . .

. . . *is happy i got that out*

So does 85% of all Anime.. which has become an acceptable norm. I'd give it a 5/5 though. It deserves that. It doesn't deserve OMFG BEST MOOVIE EVER!!! But... but..

The same people that are saying BEST MOOVIE EVER, have probably said that about anything they 5/5.

I had a kid at work (well 21, so I guess not a kid to a lot of you) tell me that Avatar was the best movie, and most epic movie he's ever seen.

Though, he says that about any new movie that he sees and likes.

Don't read into too much.

I actually didn't get past the first couple of minutes of Snow Snow for Lucy. Like. It bored me. I promised I'd eventually watch it, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Like Ducheidner said, it was pretty lazy animation (lol pot calling the kettle black), and there wasn't much visually about it that made me go 'wow.' At least not up until the part where his dog died, in which I turned it off in favor of some random moe moe anime.

BAM.

You might want to work on your profile view drawings though, the girl in the sweater looked like a man from the side at some point.

LOL, To tell you the truth, she only did because I draw some parts a long time ago, but decided to use them for this. My drawings changed, over time, apparently.

I've got a good tablet story.

I spent most of an evening working on a term paper and was too tired to print it, so I decided to print it the following morning. That morning I tried to move the mouse around but the cursor was stuck to the bottom left side of the screen. Reset the computer.... nothing. Plugged in a new mouse... nothing. Spent an hour unplugging things and trying to navigate Windows via my keyboard, even reinstalling drivers for the mouse.

I then realized that I left my wacom pen laying on my tablet the night previous. Infuriating.

Haha, I've done that before. Nothing is worse than getting angry at technology only to realize it's completely your fault. It's like that moment in a heated argument when you get that horrible sinking feeling as you realize you're wrong. Ah well, live and learn.

Yes. Having it be your fault is mega draggage. Sometimes though...you have help. Not too long ago, I posted this query about jpeg quality on NG in the lounge (which Luis was very kind to respond to). Well I found the problem. One of our poorly sighted clients, had used the zoom feature on the magic mouse and didn't zoom it back to normal. They were close, but not all the way. Therefore, every raster graphic, in every flash movie looked like a big steaming turd. I seriously was ready to murder a whole room of Adobe programmers...only to find out I was just being a fucking idiot. It hurts. :[

I'm doing a mini game in C++ for uni and I need some graphics.. I could do them myself and probably will but if anyone wants to do some space shippy graphics then that'd be cool. Just things like generic alien (or spaceship) bad guys, and a player ship or two >:/ no real animation needed, unless you want to add flames shooting out or a shooting animation or something.

Again, just if you want to :L

I thought the animation was decent for the most part, but it did have some cringe-worthy moments. The part it really really lacked in was character design. I felt that none of the characters were memorable, and even now I can't recall what they look like. The pacing wasn't too good either, it was pretty slow moving throughout.

But for a 20 minute flick animated by mouse, I think he did an alright job. If only half of Newgrounds would take the creative leaps that Spike has. He may not be the best, but he works at it.

That would look so hilariously crappy.

Snow Snow for Lucy

Too much anime stereotype; that scene with the flashback of "Lucy's father" oh boy, that was a big WTF part. The characters were pretty insipid, nothing new there, however, I liked how he somehow at least tried to make emotional moments, although at times it was pushing it was too hard.

I thought the Snow Lucy movie was...

Shonen Jump presents Edward Scissorhands.

It wasn't horrible, but it really wasn't breaking any wild new frontiers either.

I liked it a whole lot more than Vulvagayumi Happy Day.

Thats one thing i did give him credit for, he DID make a 20 minute movie, which is 5 minutes longer than my longest (khc 1.3), and it was a serious drama movie. The problem though i thought was that the story could've been told in probably 10-15 minutes and been alot more exciting, rather than boring, which i found it to be unfortunately :(
