New C&H short!!

The animation got sort of complicated, so we opted for the video format instead of straight Flash. It runs way better, hope you folks enjoy it!

Unexpected

I found it sort of depressing, then I remembered that C&H never ends without any comedy. That story sums up most of every celebrity that has failed (with the drinking, murder, time in jail, etc). I really didn't know why the bus blew up at first because I didn't hear what the bus driver had said earlier about blowing up if he stopped, but I lol'd anyway. Then I read through the reviews and found out why. It was even funnier the second time. This would be the longest comic ever if it wasn't a flash, though.

Excuse me while I go try to find a bus now.

Well...

It was really well made, except just for a few things which bothered me. I'll start with the good, though, since I uh, totally enjoy ending comments on negative notes, I guess.

I liked how the narration went on, with seamless transitions from one scene to another, and especially the music that went along with it. I really liked how the general tune of the music was the same, but by using different instruments and different effects, it drastically changed the mood, and fir in perfectly with the scenes. I also noticed how you didn't just use perhaps, violins and an upbeat tempo to perform the same tune in the police chase, because that would have been overdone, when I think about it. The plot was beautifully done as well, from the discovery of his speed, to winning the races, to literally 'falling' in love, until the lost race, to the drinking binge, to jail, and especially the nostalgic end.
Looking back, after having watched this 3 times, I sorta wish there was more to the story, between the marriage and the new race, and something about the "twenty years later" timespan, but that's only a desire for more, since it was so well done, and had there been more, it would have ruined the movie, most likely.

Er, however, the things that bothered me are here:
The voices, as a few people have said before, were, well, quite unsuitable. It wasn't too much of a bother, as it was only the intro which was like that, which can scarcely be considered part of the true film.
What I really disliked though, very strongly, was the comical explosion at the end. I'm not exactly sure what effect you were going for, but the comical fiery explosion as the abrupt end of an emotional scene did seem to entertain the masses, who are more important than the few who disliked it, because well, we're outnumbered.
But this really did ruin the ending, because the plot was so gripping and it did actually make me sad, and when the bus driver stopped, a reminder of the beginning, it added even more emotion to the ending. It would have been fine to stop there, but then there was a comical explosion abruptly ending it, followed by eccentric and quirky music in the credits.
It truly ruined the film for me.

But uh, that's enough of that. everything else has already been said, I s'pose.
