i love the feel of surility, and how the characters shown by the big bro screen are all so happy :P
good work on the feel and graphics, they looked polished
hope you got a good grade
Thanx for the support. I got a 95% on the Project and now im probably gonna get an A for the sememster. Thanx for reading My review of your revolutionary war movie man.
1984... for the zillionth time.
Like I said to the latest Matrix compilation (make a Dark City flash, damnit!)...... please, people... less 1984... MORE THX-1138, MORE LOGAN'S RUN, MORE BRAVE NEW WORLD, and more every other sci-fi depressing-future story instead of the ol' flag-bearing stalwart of the genre... People get tired of seeing the highest example of a genre emulated over and over and over again, when there are plenty of other good and underrated stories to work with.
That said, 1984 isn't THAT overdone on NG, at least... however, this particular flash doesn't really do it justice. I mean... the whole telescreen thing and everything is fine, but hate time was woefully inadequate and the REPEATING CLIP OF MUSIC almost drove me mad. Why on earth didn't you either vary the music a bit or pick something less insane? If it's part of your depiction of the world of Big Brother, then fine... but come on.
An average morning in the life of a party member ain't so bad if he doesn't have to listen to the music from this flash over and over and over again. If he does, OTOH, it's hell.
it was a good film, but it didn't really follow the story '1984' at all. the only thing close to '1984' was big brother, otherwise it was a fairly random movie.
A total bastardisation of a classic
Nineteen Eighty Four is possibly one of my favourite books. Im afraid to say you obviously understand very few of the concepts and themes discussed in this book. I didn't get a sense of the population being oppressed as is the case in the book. I didn't witness the aversion to human nature that the Party Life epitomises. The Two Minutes hate was perhaps the worst part. The point isn't that the Eurasian army want to 'kill you and your family'(especially as the family unit has been debased and nearly destroyed in Oceania) it is that they threaten to destroy the Party and the principles of Ingsoc. I think it's a shame that you totally misunderstood what Orwell was trying to portray in 1984!
As 1984 is by far my favorite novel, I hoped this flash would impress me some how, by capturing some of what is the point of the novel, or expanding upon it in some way through a different character. However, I was very disapointed in this flash. The style of graphics didn't fit at all with the theme of the book, and neither did the music. It had no relevance, no point, no theme, no metaphors, all things that are essential to the novel, and why it was written. I've read the book. I didn't need to see something that summarized part of the plot. All in all, this flash isn't really that terrible, just highly disapointing when considering the subject matter.
