Not bad

My only issues were the animation quality (call me a critic) and the part where romeo should be in the garden, and instead is in her bed. but le shrug. It was OK nothing special as far as I've seen really. 4/5 8/10

Good :)

Didn't Romeo end up drinking poison to kill himself? I can't remember, but it was good anyway. The "I'd die for..." was funny and really shows what an easily changed mind Romeo has.

Timsplosion responds:

Yeh, I think he did, but hey, I was trying to make this as short as possible, and a simple knife in the neck'll do. I mean, he still commits suicide, not matter how he does it.
And yeh, the "I'd die for" bit was partially inspired by the Reduced Shakespeare Company pointing out that at the beginning, Romeo had the hots for Rosalyn, and then suddenly changes to Juliet.
Anyway, thanks for the review. :)

A little short

I think you should add more to this,
I take it you hate shakespeare,
But I can't wait for the next one,
Keep it up!

Timsplosion responds:

Well, the whole point of these is to take Shakespeare plays and make them as short as I can make them, but hate Shakespeare? Well, I wouldn't go so far as to say that.

I'm currently trying to decide which play to do next though.

Pretty Awesome.

It was accurate, funny, and a nice idea to condense like 100000000 pages of literature into 30 seconds of Flash. The quality of the voices and the awesome classical music was kinda choppy, but the voices were well done. Nice one, favorited.

Timsplosion responds:

Thanks, I like to try my best, but yeh, my microphone seemed to screw up on me on this one compared to Macbeth and Julius Caeser.


I thought it was very funny!
It did catch a lot of the humor of the play.
Great work. :0)

Timsplosion responds:

Hey, thanks man. I just take the plays and cut it down as much as I can.
