Extremely original and funny
Most people seem to hold something against sprite movies, but even them should give 42 Boxes a chance. Let's follow up with the scoring real quick and hope that it might convince everyone to give this (and other sprite movies) a chance.
Graphics - 8/10 : I gave this movie a 8 only to be fair with movies whose graphics are drawn from scratch as they tend to be more troublesome to produce, however, I must emphasize that 42 Boxes is extremely well done. The sprites were carefully animated, the dialogue was very well lip-synched (as much as it's possible with sprites at least) and, if you know the original Final Fantasy sprites, you'll notice how well they were edited for the creation of original characters.
Sound - 10/10 : 42 Boxes deserves much more than a 10 in the sound department. A rich choice of music from various Final Fantasy Games and, of course, the beautiful, rich and masterfully done voice acting. Every character has a original and fantastic voice over, every voice actor that worked on 42 boxes deserves congratulations and lots of respect.
Script - 10/10 : most of this score is due to the careful work in the character creation. Every character (and there were a lot) have a unique and eccentric personality. I loved how well the voice acting captured this feel, but, of course, that wouldn't have been possible if not for the well-written script. The humor might be kinda random, but that is all nice in a flash short and, I believe, is what most people look for in New Grounds. Mutteo, you have my sincerest admiration for this extremely fine piece.
Well, after all this scoring, let me finish by saying again how incredible this piece was: 42 Boxes is amazing and completely worth of the 12 minutes one may need to spend to watch the entire movie (kinda long for a flash short). Sprite-fan and Sprite-hatter alike should watch this movie, the voice acting and the script will surely make your time worth of it. Kudos to the whole team that spent so much time and effort in making 42 Boxes and my sincerest thanks to anyone who spent time reading this long and boring review. God bless.
