Happy Halloween, I guess

I know little about Uzbekistan. In fact, I think the only places where I heard it was when "Borat" made fun of it, or the fact that I used to work in this one place with a person who was from Uzbekistan. Due to this, I was not able to understand if you really understood the country and the humor was spot-on. I can, however, conclude that you probably do and this was fairly good. The funniest part was probably when the Uzbek was running around chasing the chicken. The animation was not too bad and it kind of reminded me of "South Park".

The drawing in general was alright, though some of the backgrounds were a little sparse. Loved the first background with the bullet-holes in the wall, would have been nice to see that extended to some of the other backgrounds. It's just those little details that can really help improve the submission. And you can also use it to add humour, such as the "Obviously not made in Uzbekistan" scrawled on the TV.

The animation again, was a little static. But the lip sync was a little better than last time, and the drawings themselves as well as the changes in scenes helped it be less of a problem than it was in one of your last flashes. Even just having a few arm gestures or people moving in the background would improve this flash greatly, and again can be a great scope for potential additional humour.

The humour there was was good...but maybe a little few and far between? You could have thrown a few more jokes in there, I think. And especially if you did a few joikes within the drawing and animations, this flash could have been even funnier. Though it definitely had its fun points...I'm not sure a single person wouldn't find the singing at the very start very much epic, and the jokes about the gold/cotton I found perhaps more funny than I should have. The laughing scene was perhaps a little overdrawn, but I guess that's a matter of perspective.

In general, there's a marked improvement on the last flash (The one based on 21 Guns is what I'm really linking to, here), so I'd just say keep going in this direction and you'll definitely keep heading in the right direction. just keep it up!

Yeah i didnt care a lot about that.

Yes that would help the backgrounds :P

Yes it will improve a bit each time lol :P

Yes a lot of people think that, but it has it stronges jokes :P

Funny

This flash is quite funny. Fro singing in the menu is really priceless. ^^

The jokes are pretty good and they gave me a good laugh or two. But I think the "laughing scene" where the president and that other guy are laughing is too long. It's funny when they laugh together for some seconds, but that's really enough. No need to drag this scene out for what felt like 5 minutes. >_>

Good, but can be funnier...

Overall this is a decent submission. I got a laugh or two from it, so I suppose it has some OK jokes. It's fun to watch, has its moments and kept me interested all the way through, so yeah, good job ^^.

The graphics were alright, although at times they did seem very sketchy/messy, for example the background in Scene 2 wasn't drawn too well. Some of the characters were drawn pretty well though, and graphics overall were above average. Some small details and fine-tuning can also make this submission look neater, like for example in the menu, instead of making randomly positioned writing around the screen, add menu buttons under each other with neater text. Small details like this could really do wonders to this submission.

Animation needs a bit more work though. Lip sync could do with some touching up, there needs to be more facial expressions and hand gestures, and, well, what I'm trying to say is, we need moar animation. Some parts seem a little weird, like when that US army soldier ran around like a madman. When he ran away from the camera, instead of shrinking into the distance, when he went a little far away from the camera, all he did was disappear, if you get what I mean.

As for the concept, a little weird at times, but in all it was pretty original. The story progressed quite quickly with some random aspects, such as the news on TV coming out of nowhere, and the easter egg which has little to do with the story, so the story wasn't really too special. The humour section is where I have quite a bit to talk about. When the flash started, the jokes were bland and there weren't many. As I kept watching, I laughed a little, such as in the evil laughter part, and on TV with the chicken and the Uzbek, and the Olympics. The 'Obviously not made in Uzbekistan' written on the TV was quite funny too.

My biggest issue with the jokes would be that you could've done more with the jokes and added more. For example, in the beginning, you could have added more jokes for sure, and another example would be the Easter Egg. It really wasn't too funny, and for an Easter Egg, was disappointing. The evil laughter part was alright, but was pretty stupid, and I think you could've taken that opportunity to make a good joke. Instead of keeping them laughing all on their own without anything happening, you could have made something happen while they were laughing,. The different camera angles was a nice touch, though.

There were a few spelling and grammar mistakes which, although didn't really do anything to ruin the submission, won't hurt to be fixed. Some examples of grammar mistakes would be in the beginning:
"How many gold do you want?"
It should be how MUCH gold, since gold is uncountable.
"me to"
It should be me TOO, since to is a preposition.

There were also parts where the subtitles weren't equal to what they were actually saying, especially in the interview with the U.S. soldier. Sure these are small defects and nitpicks, but if you don't fix them, it's like making the flash look like you did it in a hurry and couldn't bother fixing these small mistakes, which gives a bad impression, IMO. Wow, I'm an assy critic xD.

The audio was fine. There wasn't really any background music in the submission, but Fro singing at the beginning made me laugh xD. Fro is a natural singer *Cough*...... aaaanyway... the voice acting on the whole was fine, although what's weird about the voice acting is that some of the voices are quiet while some are loud, maybe because of Nick and Fro both using different mikes or something. There was a good range of different voices, and the voice of the U.S. soldier and the person selling the gold/cotton at the beginning were well done. Some of the other voices were a little dull and need more life to them though, but overall, voice acting was fine.

In general, this is an above-average submission which I enjoyed watching. Some parts could use some work, but this is fun to watch, and I liked it overall. Keep up the good work!

lol

Nice, man, as all of your movies with Fro... You guys make a real great group!!

First of all, I want to say that Fro's voice is really awesome (It's a LIE!!) and it made me laugh so much, because his drawing was great, and pretty funny, I laughed so much when the movie started because of the voices, they're all great, and the jokes are pretty funny too!!

The drawings weren't bad, and you showed NG that it's not required great animation and artwork for a nice and funny movie, also, with Fro and Nick in the voices, no one can't laugh.

The voices were nice, the animation, too, also, the joke of the Gold and the Dollar were pretty funny, (black humor) I wanna say that you guys have to keep it up, you always make something nice and awesome, keep it UP!!
