Reviews for "One - A Short"


i didnt really get it,
makes you wundr wer he got the dog with its head cut off

great movie

but having read your answer to Sabr - what should people do instead? If we "properly" felt for all that stuff you hear in the news, all the crimes and deaths we wouldn´t do anything then just cry and be depressed 24/7 ^^

wow that was cool

that was byfar the coolest and weirdest animation ive seen on newgrounds and i say myself that was awesome but it could use more violence

should have been #1

This was SUCH a great movie. I think it's an absolute crime it didn't get first place in the 'top 5 of the day' selection. Your environment was lush and beatifully made, your animation was smooth, stylish and very realistic/true to life, and I thought your lighting effects were AMA-zing.

The message however is something that has been done to death through various forms of media. As a matter of fact, I'm really sick of this particular 'moral'. War is bad, people die, boo hoo! We get it, it's obvious that people die in wars... I would like to see more movies that touches a little more on the 'reason' behind war... Mainly money, economics, pride... but mostly money :P

Sorry about that... but other than the whole 'War bad' message. It was a really, REALLY fantastic animation. I'm looking forward to more of your work in the future :D

Thanks for the comments. I must say that I never meant this to be a "war is bad" kind of movie. Instead, I hoped viewers would see it as an examination of the social attitudes towards dealing with the war and, more specifically, the deaths of war. War sucks, everyone can agree, regardless of whether one thinks its necessary or not. I believe the saddest aspect of any war is not so much the deaths of the soldiers, but how the news portrays them as "just one death." It's hard for me to explain this any clearer. I hope you understand. Thanks again.


the flash was made wel,l point taken.
