Power of the Geek Part 2: Rooftop Battle! The first one was all setup, this is the movie I REALLY wanted to make!

OK just wanted to answer a few FAQs:

I am only myself, I have no team.
I don't use storyboards, I just listen to the music.
I don't use a graphics tablet, just this miserable bar of soap.
I usually use about 3 or 4 songs per movie, all from different sources. This one has 6.
You will have to wait until part 3 to find out who the old guy is.
Yes, I'm single.

Thanks for your support guys! Your reviews mean constant improvement (I hope!)

And if you look like the girl in this movie, E-mail me ASAP! :)



Rated 4 / 5 stars


Noone cares if you're single, dork. Noone female anyway. Get over yourself.

Nice animation tho.

If any of you guys look like the GUY in this cartoon, you can e-mail me ASAP. No not really.

I look like him. From the neck up anyway. And I'm not just saying that, I really traced my face!

You've got to admit: It's getting better.

This episode had a big improvement over the first one. The music was great. The powers were great.

Cons: How come he is suddenly very familiar with what the mouse can do for him? He just is toxicated and then he knows everything? The cartoony squish sound at the end detracted from it too. I don't know why, it just did.


Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

A mediocre at best melodrama

While I enjoy a good action story with an invigorating musical score, I can't commend the works of someone who blatetly rips off proven and true movie elemets, acting that they are their own. It's a sad world that we live in. A sad, sad world of plagarism and other such offences. It's great to see that you are just one of the crowd.

Was this Supposed to be funny?

This movie had good graphics. but thats it, the music you used was horrible, the sound was choppy and cheesy, and Humor?! Hell no. with this type of movie, with all of the movement you need a faster and stronger song. Try a heavy metal song like...Metallica "Orion" which is instrumental.. and would fit this movie greatly. but the movement and animation in this movie are good.

Ben-Spurgin responds:

Actually, I considered using more heavy metal like in Final Slayer, but metal just doesn't offer the diversity in themes that Zimmer and Rabin do. i.e. the decapitation scene music needs to be different than the rescue-the-girl music. But even if I did use metal, I wouldn't use Metallicrap! I'd use something decent like Gwar or Soulfly or Sepultura or something.

Hey Sammy150, get a faster computer!

Every piece of work you make just gets better and better. This new one has improved leaps and bounds over the first one. I was espicially impressed by how well you use the 3D building. The drawing were choppy but hey, thats just style. Youve got an awesome series going here. Please make lots more.
