Blockhead, Episode 5: The Mission

Blockhead tries to salvage a fleeting day.

Watch Episode 4:

*** Hey, alright! You Newgrounds boys came through for me after all - was beginning to think ol' B-to-the-H had let you down. Tip o' the hat to you all for the Front Page again.



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

This cartoon is losing it's touch.

Really, this used to be a funny cartoon with no violence, and as each one goes on, it's more and more violent and is getting less funny overall. It's still kinda good, but it's losing its touch. At the very least give it a T rating if you're gonna put gore in there.

The-Swain responds:

Blockhead has three personalities, I've discovered. There's the "idiot", the "sadist", and the "attention-span shortage"; each relates to his overwhelming naivety and lack of common sense. This episode was the first to really dwell on all at once, so there was a bit of a juggling act going on.

Pushing children, selling nails, destroying property, etc., are part of Blockhead's interaction with the world and an important showcase of how groundless his logic really is. But if your complaint is with the cheap-laugh-violence like at the end of the cartoon, then don't think too much about it. It was important for me to bring closure to the Conscience's episodal anxiety, not to fill the cartoon with blood.

Whatever the case, I disagree with having a T rating: not only is the character not corporeal (does he exist outside of Blockhead's mind?), but the rating is meant to denote violence as per the word (the expending of force to deal physical harm), not simply bloodshed.

(Oh, and don't count Halloween Episode 4...the gun was as close to a 'scary' Halloween theme as I wanted to get, and I don't aim to use it again in the future)

Anyway, if you're worried that I'm going to fall down the slope of bloody-fighting-stick-ninjas or what have you, then fret not. This series will always be absurd and it will always stay clean.

Becoming a cool series

The graphics aren't too good, but the Photoshop environments are pretty good looking in a scribbly Beavis and Butthead sort of way. The audio quality, I've noticed, is very clear and stuff. I'm impressed by that. The comedy is unique in that it's a moron (which isn't unique) but is very clearly and well spoken and has a happy-go-lucky attitude about everything. These are getting better.

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

A decent flash.

Graphics- 10/10
Drawn flashes are hard to do, especially when they're this smooth.

Sytle- 4/10
I personally did not like the style of which this movie was drawn. I'm not sure if your character was went to be drawn 'out of place' or not.

Sound- 4/10
The voice acting was good, but the actual sound affects came in choppy

Violence- 0/10
Not much violence in this movie at all.

Interactivity- 0/10
No menu, or any other type of special preloader

Humor- 10/10
The humor of this movie was very good, and I laughed at many parts. this is probably one of the funniest things I've seen in awhile.

Overall- 7/10
Keep up the good work!

The-Swain responds:

Blockhead is indeed an "out of place" sort of guy. That's why I use the "photoshopped" images in the beginning, to demonstrate that there is a real world out there but that Blockhead has no part in it but for his mischief.

And I'm glad you enjoyed, but I really appreciate the careful review!
