*edit* FIXED THE SOUND Thanks to Cybex. Made the graphics better too. Thanks for FrontPage And love the reviews. Have been responding to each and everyone of them!*

Well, after more than A YEAR of absence in the flash world, I've finally decided to make something. A good old Flash MX piece of art. And, what better thing could I make than another tribute to Newgrounds? This flash resumes in a(I tried to) comical way the mainly reasons among so many of why one should join NG. That's why we love you NG.

Try to enjoy it. I know I had fun making it :)

Pretty Good

This was a fairly good animation, amusing enough to pass the time when you're bored. I enjoyed some of the political comentary, thats always funny, and overall i enjoyed it. If this is one of your first works it is well done, you should continue making flashes. Oh and i think Sharpnova is a downright gay-bashing republican without a mind of his own. i think people should just ignore him and get on with our lives.

-D

Thanks!
I'm glad you saw it the way it was meant to be seen. Just as something to look from time to time, but to easily forget, then remember. Well it's not one of my first works... I've made a lot of flash movies back then.
I didn't even read Sharpnova's review yet. But I'll reply to it once I replied to every other reply. It will be fun to read AND to reply to. :)
Thanks for the review.

Propaganda much? LOL

Wow, okay, Sharpnova, first of all, it says "Constructive Criticism" not downright bashing. And do you think 30,000 Iraqi civilians' lives is good price for 3,000 of our own? not everyone is a terrorist, no, not even every Iraqi (and please don't even pretend to know how the world works, nobody does because nobody is as informed as they think they are-not me, not you). Okay, so on to the review. Well, the graphics were a little choppy, and the sound was less than good. The style and (somewhat)subtle humor, however, made up for other lacking qualities. Overall, this was a sub-par flash, but I think with practice, and maybe a little coaching or a partner to work with, you'll produce some really great flashes down the road.

*pretends he doesn't see the reply to Sharpnova*

Thanks!
Glad you rather liked it in overall!
The graphcis are choppy, I'm lazy and impatient most of the time... and I'm trying to fix the sound problem in a way.
Thanks for the support :]
Thanks for the review,

Good

I liked it man, just the only real problem i had with it was the Sound.

Could you possibly reduce the background music and make the voice acting louder. The only way i knew what you were saying was by reading the captions.


alexsmolik responds:

Thanks!
Well I can't make my voice acting louder, I tell you that lol. It would plain suck! I did contact the author of the music though, and asked him if he could retouch the music and make it less louder.
Thanks for the review and fair ratings.

Origional

I liked it...

I thought this piece was origional, a rare commodity to Newgrounds these days.
I enjoyed the music and most graphics...
(i think we all know what my fave pic was)
Like you said, you have some problems to work out - for example, the sound issues.

One suggestion would be to get the authors to draw thier characters...and i would love to see toms opinions on this flash.

In short i think this flash definately deserves front page, and a place in my very short faveourites list.

Keep editing it, and making more of this kind of thing - i would like to see a Snakes on a Plane from you.


alexsmolik responds:

Glad you liked it :]

Thanks for the compliments. And about the sound, I contacted the author with the private messaging system, and asked for a "less loud" version.

I could get the authors to draw their characters... that's a good idea! But sadly, I don't know them really well, the one I know the most is Adam Phillips. So I don't know if back then they would have all agreed to draw one of their characters, with their tight schedule!
I would like to see Tom's opinion on this flash too. Even though he made the description of it.

Thanks for the support, you know, I DID start to doodle a Snakes on a Plane kind of script-thingy haha. But I've got to make a bigger script filled with allusions to that lol.
Thanks for the review.

i agree with Amner...

JAPPANESSE SCHOOL GIRLS FOR ALL!!! Heh heh.. not really, but its an intresting idea to increse our petopheliac(?) demographic.

This was ALOT like the commercial for that wierd cult group from one of the later episodes of Cowboy Bebop. Im assuming some insperation came from that.

This was pretty good... touch up the sound, which you said you had issues with and get the permission of the artist with characters in question... and you seriously could now just of made the worlds first NG commercial(GASP! The Horror!).


alexsmolik responds:

Hello!

Well to be honest, I don't even know what Cowboy Bebop is, so I don't know what is that weird cult group commercial thingy you're talking about lol.

About the sound, I contacted the author, if he could make me a "less louder" version. We'll see if he replies, and as long as I say the characters aren't mine, I think I'm fine.
Yay at NG's first commercial ! ^__^
Thanks for the review,
ALEX
