Reviews for "Mario Meets Kirby"

God, that sucks. Any more submissions like this and it'll permanently scar the good name of fan fiction. Next time, pick a story that doesn't suck, and for the love of God, don't narrate it.

And yet, this one glides by because it's a parody. And for some stupid funny reason in this site, all is fair when it comes to parody. Even the submission guidelines and suggestions create a virtual loophole where they discourage the use of anything copyrighted, yet encourage the satire thereof. So people can get away with knocking some juvenile hack's attempts at literature, if it happens to feature known game characters.

So, this is an adaptation of a piece of fan fiction. Yeah. And like I've said, all's fair with parody at this site. It has become quite the fashion to narrate a story in its entirety and then animate to it. On occasion, the animation has to do something trippy or just plain weird (note Mario's face), while rambling on and not making any sense and making everything ugly, because the story is ugly too, and we have to emphasize that point, over and over, ad infinitum. Yeah.

I hate this. I really do. It's self-indulgent and at someone's expense. I bet there was never any query made to allow an adaptation, let alone tarnish it. What was meant to be funny turned out completely poor in execution, bland in style and uninspiring. The story is bad, but the adaptation is worse, and on purpose. It'll pass judgment and infest the site like all the other bad satires that have crept up over the years. Worst of all, it's by a reasonably good author who can do a whole lot better.

My only recommendation: either pick a decent fan fiction to adapt and ADAPT it (not narrate a damned mess), or don't even bother borrowing from fan fiction.

JonBro responds:

So, let me get this straight. You dislike this because
- it's about a horrible fan fiction
- it's a parody containing randomness
and that's it.

I don't mind getting 0 reviews when they contain criticism that's actually constructive, but this was not one of those times. You didn't mention a single time why any of this was bad. You gave examples of things you personally find annoying, but for what reasons? What made this poorly executed? How was this self-indulgent? These are all questions left unanswered in your review. All you've done is throw assumptions at me. My intentions were to take a badly-written fan fiction, which is probably long lost and forgotten by its writer, and point out what a mess it is through animation. I can assure you it wouldn't have made any difference whether or not this was a video game parody, because that was not the point.

Story: 2/3 The story... it was great.
Animation 3/3 Great animation... it kept the feel of the flash nice and consistent.
Audio: 3/3 It worked well. A little abrupt on the end, but the music was fitting.
Extra: 0/1 I rarely give this one out... don't worry!
-
8/10 = 4 stars
P.S. Another protection point for me... yay.

This was absolutely hilarious!

The animation was great. You sounded like you had no idea what you where saying but thats alright because I had no idea what was happening either.
Fan fictions are unintentionnaly funny.
Btw the music screws up at one point when mario and kirby are just about to head back to the place they met or the place that they juste were.
I don't know :P

JonBro responds:

Yeah, I'm aware of the music screw-up, but I don't know of any good way to fix it. The only way I could find to make this movie sync properly and keep the audio sounding decent was to make the movie pause and keep playing in the middle of it. So that's why it's there.
Thank you very much :)

Another good movie, by my good friend JonBro.

What?
