EDIT: So I forgot to take note of how sensitive ng was to terms like "parody" and "tribute"...I guess this is more of a tribute towards Contra so ignore the so-called incorrect term of parody stuck onto the title screen. -.-

Entry for competition, I got 2nd place :D

Woah! A stick figure fight with an actual theme!

He could have just made a bunch of stick figured beating the crap out of each other on a colored background, and this probably would have gotten a decent score.

After all, it's something we've all seen before, but he's choreographed this particular fight scene pretty well. There are lots of melee and gunplay hits packed between frames, often in time with the music. Ropes and smoke trails that react very well physically, and subtly weighted arms and legs shift sublimely as the bodies hit the floor. All that stuff makes this an excellent stick battle movie.

But instead of just another nameless faceless "experimental film" kind of stick figure fight, this is classic Contra! ZOMG! You got Stick Fighting in my Sprite Movie! You got Sprite Movie in my Stick fight! The result (in this case) is an incredible tour de force that combines the wow-factor of well-done sticks with the nostalgia of your favorite sprite movies, and manages to surprise you at the end with a genuinely cinematic couple of seconds.

Daverandomster has taken two overworked newgrounds trends and exploited them both to great effect. As soon as I finish this review, I intend to check out his other work, and I suggest you do the same. I can't wait to see what he does in the future! You just know it's going to be good.
