Just moved in to my new dorm today and sadly I don't have flash anymore but still wanted to participate so I threw this piece of art together.

Happy Clock Day y'all!

What's this about??? Your laptop?
That's not even nonsense, that's useless.

IMDB didn't like it either.

I liked this and really for no reason other than that it sets itself up so well. I was wondering what the date of this submission would be. I guess this was the actual movie. Yeah, it makes no sense, but is still quite humorous. I really like non-sequitor stuff like this. Movie critics do use "riveting" a lot, don't they?

It's nice to see some live-action stuff here. I know it's not usually preferred, but it's nice every now and then. Or was the video in the video the actual film? The music sets everything up so well. Happy Clock Day 2013!

sumidiotdude responds:

Riveting sounds about right, yeah. Thanks for the review, buddy!

I'm sorry but i can'T see the point of making a video of you holding your laptop in your bathroom for a whole video

sumidiotdude responds:

I was going for that Kubrick-esque style of cinematography

I thought the overall story was pretty decent, but I've seen it before. That been said, you still did it really well, and I enjoyed that, seeing as how it's been done terribly many times as well. The main character seemed really interesting and sympathetic, but the supporting characters just sort of fell flat for me. The arm holding the laptop had almost no emotion in anything, its animation just looked stiff.

The dialogue was sort of hit or miss between being witty and brilliant to being corny and generic. It was alright, but the dialogue just felt like it was there to rush the story along at some scenes, then be used as filler for other scenes. Two problems that shouldn't really be in the same movie. When you nailed it, though, you really nailed it. I actually had to pause it a few times just to laugh.

Overall, though, I think this is a break through in animated films. It's not exactly comparable to "B" but I'm remembering the same feeling I had when I watched that. It just feels like even when certain things don't go right, I almost don't notice them at all because I'm so sucked into the film.

Excellent work, I look forward to seeing more of it.

sumidiotdude responds:

Thank you for the well thought out review buddy. I like to think when I was producing this I looked at the collective human consciousness and pulled out the most significant thing. That process eventually became the movie you just saw. Thanks again for the kind words!

You know a movie is good when the guy did it in his bathroom

sumidiotdude responds:

It worked for James Cameron, and it worked for me.
