Warning: Do not attempt to pause this movie at any time during, or the audio will get off.

Anyway, this is the first cartoon I've ever made where Jim and the crew had voices. It's a pretty big deal for me. It took forever to get all the people to finally get there voices in, but once I did, the cartoon came pretty easily. So enjoy this cartoon; and please leave a review!

P.S. I'm not going to actually make this movie, I really just thought this would be a fun way to try out voices.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Really good voice acting there.

This was amazing, the voice acting was the perfect, The animation was good. I haven't really seen any of your movies (besides tetris unleashed) but this is quality, nice job

People find this review helpful!

Well graphics wheren't too stong here, some of the backgrounds and effects used did look pretty nice, though you are keeping with the same basic shape which is okay. There was some animation in this which was pretty good too, though some of it look simple, it worked and what works is best to use. The preloader was a little poor though, could have been a little tider for presentation.

Voice acting was pretty good, although the voice of the narrator wasn't on some words, didn't sound too smooth though still good enough and clear, which is good. Also the music and sounds here where good too, very clear and easy to hear, so no problems with sound.

Quite an intresting idea here in someways, though maybe done before, still pretty good and well played out.

I made the preloader at 1 AM in order to meet my deadline, and had been working for 4 hours before then to finish the cartoon, I didn't put 100% into making it. Anyway, thanks for the review, glad you liked it.

*Calls advance previews hotline*

Well, this is certainly a very good trailer for an eagerly anticipated movie. I think that you could have done with having the option of subtitles - trying to hear what everyone is saying is difficult, when trying to watch the animation and trying to keep the volume down from watching it at work :P

Still, the graphics are awesome (Loved the way you portrayed Jim as simple, showing his component shapes and then his reaction to your 'badly drawn' comment.) And so is the plotline. Obviously, I'd like to see the rest of the movie, as you've given us the highlights and the coming never is bound to be bullshit... isn't it?

You're a great animator and it is time for you to take the next big step of putting a full feature together, dammit!

Jimtopia responds:

Almost everyone who's reviewed wants me to make this into a full length cartoon, but honestly that's just not in the cards at the moment. I really want to finish my submission for the X-mas 07 contest, that's my main priority right now. I guess we'll have to see what 2008 brings in the way of Jim, but I gotta say, a big movie wouldn't be for a long time, if ever. Plus if I did make this into a "full feature" I would have to include all these parts into it, and I think that could really screw up the storyline, lol. Anyway, I appreciate the vote of confidence that you usually give me in your reviews, but Jim isn't meant for a long cartoon, at least not yet. Maybe someday you'll get tickets to go see the full length "Jim: The Movie" in theaters; wouldn't that be cool? =P

(title in work)

^^Good Points^^
I was thinking that the voices were new in this, and after reading your comments, that was confirmed. I thought the voices really made this more interesting than the rest of the series overall. Definitely well done voice overs and the storyline looks to be quite interesting. Even if you don't ever make a real movie out of this, it will be interesting to watch the series with voices.

^^Needs Improving^^
Unfortunately, you won't be making a full version of this one, which is what I was hoping from a trailer.

Jimtopia responds:

Although the voices are good, they added about a month to the production time, from the time where I put the "ad" for them out, to the time I completed the cartoon; and seeing how this cartoon did worse than my previous Jim and Pals Shorts, I don't think I'll be sticking with voices, unless it's a rare occasion. Thx for the review.


Rated 1 / 5 stars

Brilliant! Absolutely amazing!

I was referring to the end, where it told me there wasn't going to be a movie.
Well hoo-bloody-rah.
I hate trailers. And i hate cheesy trailers. The animation was bad, and needed improving. The voices seemed stupid, seeing as the characters had no mouth.
Any humour you tried to create was shot down by the overwhelming crapness of the headings and captions you randomly placed in. It looked like a half decent powerpoint presentation. What this was doing on Newgrounds, I'll never know.
But please, don't be put off by my comments. There was one redeeming factor - I just can't remember what it was.

Jimtopia responds:

First off, if you don't want people to be "put off" by your comments, then don't be a jerk when you say them. "It looked like a half-decent powerpoint presentation" is helping no one improve anything, and judging from these other reviews, people really enjoyed it. You can have your opinion, but don't be such a jerk when you express it.
