Joe Zombie :: Episode 6

Author Comments

After a 3 year hiatus with Cyanide & Happiness, I'm back at NG with a new movie! Impossible!

Fun fact: The only Swift3D I used in this episode was the airplanes and the collumns in the central chamber. Stop accusing me of 3D tomfoolery!

Also, stop calling it short. It's 6 and a half minutes, two minutes longer than the previous longest episode.

Okay, I'll admit. This is pretty fucking good. For 2006 these effects are outstanding. Your quality suffers a little bit with respect to some movements that should have easing as well as frame by frame sequences, mainly because of how lanky the characters are - Castle III showed a much smoother style a year later - but that doesn't take away much from how far this series has come and how much work has gone into a strong voice cast and visual effects. A couple lines of dialogue feel canned but other than that this is outstanding and holds up pretty well even today. Hard to imagine it's been over ten years since this came out.

Like everyone else, I loved this movie! I'm especially impressed at how it's held up. I mean, there's lots of older stuff but this is still very impressive. I just love the animation. I had no idea sticks could look so smooth. You really don't see much of them anymore.

I guess the Stick Slayer did his job. It was great to get into Joe's origin. I wish there were more Cyanide & Happiness stuff here. You're still talented in whatever you do. The shading's great too.

This awesome but it's a damn shame that it's been nearly 10 years since this came out yet there's no sequel. Here's to hoping that Rob Zombie Episode 7 is going to be made and going to be good!

I'd agree with Cheerious here.
I do realize people would expect perfection as the next installment (if it is ever to be created).
However, the series were quite successful. If this is where it ends, it does seem kinda sad actually...

Joe Zombie as a series is well over 15 years old, this one's around the age of 12. Goddamn, doesn't time just fly right past us?
Age long waiting aside, the film holds up really well. Baxter's death could have been entirely avoided if he had shot Joe in the cage to begin with, and then all that info was shown in a flashback, but I could take a guess that it was mainly done for dramatic cliffhanger purposes. For a really long time, I thought Joe looking like a midget compared to Baxter was an error, and then I realized that's his actual size. Joe is actually just a goddamn gremlin, and I love it.
That first thing is just a nitpick. Joe might not be talked about in general Newgrounds conversation that much anymore, but I think this having a place just a few pages into the Classics section is well deserved.
