Conquest of Magnificence

This is a surreal and humorous homage to old movies about the dawn of the Space Age.

This movie was originally submitted to the portal in 2006, but the version on here now is an enhanced edition from 2008, with improved graphics and sound.

We are doing well so far

We cannot become complacent. The soviets plan to have some canneloni in orbit by 1983. We must be ready to meet that challenge.

I blame the Nixon government for messing everything up with his misguided faith in miniature bow tie-style pasta.

Thanks to him, there is still a noodle gap between us and the reds, even to this day.

Loved it!

I want to see more of your space-themed flash movies.

This really was quite a gem of a movie.

Really looking for that professional-looking and ultimate masterpiece of yours.


void150 responds:

Thanks so much!! It's appreciated :D

alittle bland....

the graphics were ok.... nothin ive never seen before tho.... tho i must say the ravioli in space did catch me alittle off guard..... that was pretty random......


Eh alright

work harder on your next flash for better score.

void150 responds:

I didn't have a mic when I made that one - now I do and the next stuff I post will have lip-synced dialogue and stuff, so hopefully it will be of more interest.

Not bad for a first

I gave you a low score because I just grade low in general, but for a first shot it wasn't bad. The graphics were pretty poor (though admittedly better than I can do), and the style was bland. It was a little humorous, but not enough for me to grade it higher. As far as sound, I liked the music ('Mars' by Holst, right?), but it would've made it better to have at least some sound effects, if that were possible. Since you were imitating an old movie, they wouldn't even need to be good sound effects, or perfectly timed.

Anyway, I hope this review was somewhat helpful, and keep practicing!

void150 responds:

Sound effects will indeed be present on my next animation. I was really more interested in learning how to edit and do effects and stuff visually, so sound was kind of just an afterthought. But yes, you're right, that was 'Mars' by Holst, one of my favourite pieces!
