Yeah, huh-uh. No. Blam. It's just some MS Paint pics with gay music playing. It is so stupid. Try animating.

Cheese and Banana are good actors...

but you could tell that the mime and the monkey were just going through the motions. Those hacks.

Anyway, aside from the mixed casting... I felt that the short story was a story effectively told. It was a good mix of 0.5 frames per second visual INSANITY with a well thought out looping effect of "I Shot the Sheriff."

My mind is currently about to self-destruct from listening to three Bob Marleys now. I have to go shoot the voices in my head, pardon me...

StrawberryLock responds:

I wish I could get the same performance out of the mime and monkey.. But this was mainly because the Cheese and Banana are more experienced actors and have had more practice. I felt that mixing older, experienced actors with some new up-and-comers fresh out of acting school would give the movie an overall realistic feeling to it. I wanted them to try and feel their roles and really get into them, but with the wreckless and arrogant attitudes of the Monkey and Mime, it was a bit tough to get the reactions I wanted. I feel they had decent chemistry though. Hell, anyone that lets me set them on fire for the sake of a movie is good in my books. Speaking of fire, I hadn't been aware of the Banana's fire-breathing abilities until the day before we started shooting, As soon as I saw it I knew I had to work it into the movie somehow.

Anyway, As with most of my flash, many people don't understand it. So just in case you missed it, I'll clear some things up for you. The "Big Cheese" was the leader of a local crime syndicate. The Mime and Monkey had witnessed the Banana torching a daycare center. The Big Cheese informed the Banana of his mistake and ordered him to take care of the duo. I really don't know why I chose the song, I guess it just gave me a feeling that captured the scene perfectly and I just had to go for it. Thank you again for yet another outstanding review.
