Reviews for "Mad Max: Kung Fury Road"

Hilarious concept throughout, Animation and Sound design were spotty at best but the Voice Acting was Spot-on!

Some suggestions I have to improve this for a reupload (something Newgrounds excels at over YouTube):

Some of the shots can be shortened a tad

Silhouetted figure walk cycle could do with more work. Try throwing a Sun in the background with a drop-shadow under max. (Max's walk cycle can be put into a symbol, duplicated then placed underneath and brightness dropped to 0, also with maybe a pinch of blur for greater effect) Look up pictures of people in deserts as a reference for color schemes.

When Kung Fury pops in, maybe try extending the background music up until the point when Max holds up Kung Fury at gunpoint, just fading the volume down a bit when the dialogue starts. Try it and see how it holds up.

SOUND IS KEY! Have some continuous background ambient sound (blowing wind, etc), perhaps add some subtle cloth rubbing sound effects when the characters move. Max's gun could use with some subtle weapon's foley fx (sound of the gun rattling).

Fury's last line is out of sync, however you could play this to your advantage, just cut it short and give the line some reverb to make it sound as if he's thinking aloud.

Again, just some helpful suggestions for improvement.

Ah, thanks! It`s funny, as soon as I started fooling around in flash I forgot some of the most basic rules of art and drawing--use references, save a few versions of your work (for gods sake do it) and... read some basic tutorials. Also somehow I ended up with my tablet stylus up my nose. Hot tip, don`t do that, it can claphg brlain dummuge.
I think you`d be terrified if i showed you the raw flash document, its a regular Frankensteins monster, heh. I learned so much over the course of animating this dumb little thing and I`m taking all your current tips (and hopefully future ones!) to heart. Thanks again, hopefully I`ll catch you again in the next toon!

SirUndead Sez:
Thanks a bunch dude, these are some great tips! All the animation stuff goes over my head, but the sound stuff I can respond to. I did try extending the theme that far out (because I liked the theme so much hahah) but I really wanted to capture that sort of maddened awkwardness which the movie had such an awesome amount of. Not saying I made the RIGHT choice, but that was my reason for making the WRONG choice. As for the background noise, it was in there but yeah it wasn't the whole piece, just certain moments. I had the walking in the sand noises for when they moved, but cloth rubbing together never even occured to me, so thanks a bunch for that tip, I'll have to consider that!

Dude, I so badly wanted to put in gun sound effects for every time it moved like you said, but I couldn't get the right sound, hopefully for next time I feature a gun I can get that right. And as for the last line being out of sync, this was actually entirely deliberate, you may be able to notice, all of Kung Fury's lines are out of sync while Max's are pretty in-sync. We wanted to capture how Kung Fury's lines were occasionally kinda out of sync in the actual movie, but clearly we need to work on making this clearer, or perhaps dropping a joke like that entirely if it risks just coming off as low quality.
Anyway thanks dude, you're the best and I really appreciate these tips from somebody like you! I'll DEFINITELY be thinking of this stuff next go around. Have a good one!

I fucking love it. The idea is awesome and the style was pretty cool. Could've used more work but hey PHUCK it :D

SirUndead Sez:
That was literally my entire creative philosophy. Laziness is PARAMOUNT to the team dynamic and a critical element for projects to ever see the light of day, rather than being perfected into a dark hole nobody will ever be able to peer into, until I snap and start deleting the project files live on stream. My buddy Keith has a saying which is infinite in wisdom; "Fuck it." These words can protect a soul. TO PRATEC DA LOOIFE CYCLE.

Ya'll two need to make babies now, there is no telling what wonders they would make. Good job.

Paxilon responds:

SirUndead Sez:
Hahahah, that is the OPPOSITE of a thing which should occur, because I think my self-loathing would reach a climax when I murdered my own child for having my blood inside of it. Also, you ever seen Bear and Bunny Boo 2? Genetically speaking, after calculating the percentages, it would probably look like that frog. Thanks for watching, amigo!

Paxilon Sez:
SirUndead, you're clearly not familiar with my species' reproductive cycle. You don't have to worry about our future hatchlings because the female always eats the male directly after mating.

This is so simple but brilliant, just like Fury Road. SirUndead's creepily good Mad Max voice coupled together with good art and tween animation make for a pretty good flick. NICE ONE, GUYS

Paxilon responds:

SirUndead Sez:
Hmph. Mmh. Hmm! Hmm...Hmm! Hm!

Is ok his dinosaurs and other overpowered friends will come and save him, now as for Max... he is fucked.

Paxilon responds:

SirUndead Sez:
Will a round 2 come to light? Will Mad Max have to deal with his shotgun being hacked or Thor's epic pecs? Is he just kinda chilling on a beach right now pre-apocalypse? What evil lurks in the hearts of men? Does The Shadow ACTUALLY know? What was my point?
