~ Animation/Graphics ~

I think that you had your own style and it was pretty decent, especially for the theme of the animation. I thought it was a little simplistic and that there was a little bit of room for improvement on some things. For example, the people were pretty odd shaped and could be refined a little. The dirt pile that was dumped on the refrigerator was a little too basic and could have been detailed better. It would have also been a bit better if there was a little bit more detail put into the background. Some things weren't as smooth as they could have been such as the people moving and whatnot, but overall the simple style probably works for this submission.

~ Story/Plot ~

This was borderline awesome. It just ended a little bit random for my liking. During the entire submission I'm loving the originality and the humor of a fridge being dumped off as garbage away from the family that he grew up to love and care for. It brings up so many damn questions. Can only this kid here the fridge? Does it take the magic power of being a kid and having an open mind? Did his last owners hear him talk? If they did, why in the world would they get rid of him? Obviously talking fridges isn't just common since the kid is really surprised when this one talks to him... or is he just startled because he doesn't know it's there...?

Let me in on your universe! I was also thinking about what a great series this could have been if taken in two different directions. This fridge, which is capable of moving and doesn't need to stay at the dump... or he could... could start killing people as his revenge for being dumped. He could stay in the dump and kill people in creative ways or even recruit some of the "trash" being dropped off and lead a revolution against the human kind. Damn, I would watch and love a series like that!

What I thought was going to happen was the father and son were going to take him home as a beer fridge. That wouldn't make such a good flash, but maybe they could take him home and the fridge could start a different adventure from there. The ending proves that a series or that I thought of a series wasn't ever really the plan though. I just wanted to throw those out there just in case!

The topic of the ending... how.. I get it. The humor is actually pretty good, but just a tad bit too random. Not like way over random, but I shook my head a bit when the drugs came out. I wish it didn't go that direction and I kind of wish I didn't have to imagine this fridges revenge being as simple as one child he didn't know and getting himself crushed to death. Doesn't seem like much of a revenge. That being said, I left laughing and saying whattt...

~ Audio ~

I would have liked to see some original music put in this submission. Maybe from the audio portal or some royalty free music, but all in all it was very fitting for the animation. The voices were really good and I think everything was pretty good quality in this aspect.

~ Other ~

A replay button/rolling credits at the end would have been better fitting.

~ Overall ~

The animations/graphics were a it basic, I left laughing and love the originality of the idea, and the audio was of good choice and quality.

Not too bad. Art style could be a lot prettier. This reminds me of stuff I've seen cerca 2005. Kind of weird watching a fridge pondering suicide. Talking objects, interesting concept. At points the recording quality could be better. All in all, interesting concept. Music was pretty alright. Extra half a star for the message.

WAT. WAT? WAT! WAT!?
I just love it seriously :D
One thing you could do better - make a pause button. It'll make it more comfortable to watch stuff while @wrk

Hey a movie with unexpected moral! :D Guess that could explain the whole talking fridge thing too. Was not expecting that. Pretty good animation/voicing, though the canvas shows through on some frames. Keep it going!
