I liked it

I thought it was pretty tranquil really.

As for there being no plot. There quite clearly is. The plot is of bubbles going around until being popped by a flower. There's your plot right there. How can something not have a plot? Fair enough, it can be a weak plot but it's there none the less. Shit, I've said plot so much it's starting to sound weird when I say it.

The animation was pretty sweet, very smooth and it flowed well. The music was nice and calm. Faggoty? Haha, seriously man.

I wouldn't call anything on Newgrounds a movie if you ask me, but you didn't. I think random shorts like these have as much place on NG as say, the Bitey flashes, which is what this reminded me of in a way. A nice forest scene with decent music.

The colours were cleverly done, and the shading mixed with the blur effect really helped create a sense of depth in the forest. Without showing too much of the sky (if any infact) you trapped the audience in what appeared to be a dense forest, with a thick canopy. That gave the forest a mystical feel, which was empowered by the blue-ish mist that lingered in the background. The blur effect was great, I loved it. It made the forest seem more detailed. You really do get the impression that you are visually focusing on the bubble, with everything in the foreground and background being out of focus. The bubbles themselves were animated really well, they looked really 3D and had a very natural feel to them as they floated about.

The music was very peaceful and really made the flash. Without it, the flash would have definitely lost all of its power. The light feel of the music didn't in any way distract you from the images. In fact, it almost seemed to guide you through the forest, along with the bubble.

I can't really fault this anywhere, the length was perfect for what this flash was. There are only a few things I can think of that threw me off a little. Firstly the ending credits come in a little too fast I think, and the change is music is too abrupt. The contrasting styles in music almost jerks you back to reality after being lost in the serene forest. The other thing is the text saying "Pop easily". The colour was a bit too close to the background colouring and there were too many of those blue dots around the text. I feel the white text used for "Bubbles" would of been completely acceptable had it been used again for the text "Pop easily". The background to the"Pop easily" text was less detailed and appeared flat in contrast to the other scenes. I like the fairy, it really changed the feel of the flash. With it, you really do have a magical forest.

This was a pretty good flash. One of those hidden gems that you're lucky to find. Keep up the good work man, you show a lot of potential. I can't wait to see more of your work.

Oh, and take that warning off! Haha.

Thankyou for a wonderful (and detailed) review! I see where I went wrong. and right. My next flash will definitely be better though :)


Rated 2 / 5 stars


Music was a little faggoty for me but the animating was pretty sound, didn't really get it if there was supposed to be some sort of message or something...This would be alot better if it had any kind of story, music and was longer.

animating was good though

CyanSandwich responds:

honestly, this movie isn't meant to have any plot or message. I was just experimenting and made it up as i went. "faggoty" c'mon dude.


Rated 2 / 5 stars


I honestly wouldn't call this a MOVIE. I really liked the animation but there was absolutely nothing going on. Just bubbles floating around in a forest. Plot is important when you're making a flash. So you get a four for the animation, and that's giving you an extremely generous rating.

CyanSandwich responds:

Your right, there is nothing going on. the description (the mini one) actually says "bubbles doing nothing in a forest". but its nice to know you liked the animation
