Very original - although the idea may have crossed my mind - I kinda pictured it to be even more graphic. I guess you couldn't have made it more offensive considering where you were trying to go with the concept. The graphics remind me of drawings once done on the site stileproject. Can anyone confirm this?
I've got to say the graphics are very well done - smooth and detailed enough. However, what lacks is the storyline. First of all, I don't know how you can incorporate African warriors into every single one of your flashes. Not to imply that Africans are a problem in general, but it defintitely gives the audience a wondering of why the hell is there a black guy in a movie based on Japan - how did he stumble across this and become the chosen one. It just doesn't flow. And I was more than disappointed when your portrayal of the asians was none more than a typical sterotype of a yellow guy in a Chinese farmer hat, with foo man shu moustaches. You've got too much potential to waste it on cliches. Get creative thinking.
Lets see how do I portray African warriors into every flash.. Could it be that it was Taishi 1, Taishi 2, Taishi 3, and Taishi 4 and then the New Taishi?? what the hell?? You mean keep the same Main character in all These Cartoons.. Wow what a crazy idea.. If the main character is black dude.. Then its gonna stay that way unless you want me to make the Michael Jackson Warriors.. You act like a black man in Japan.. is unheard of.. I find this Review of no Help.. Try again..
Great fucking flash
I don't think it's offensive enough to freak out about - if people can't take a joke then they shouldn't be exposed to cartoons like this and anything else in the first place. Improv was really good - on the spot - expressions were hilarious - keep making more - but I don't know how far you can make it with this concept alone.
It's not bad - I've been waiting for someone to make an animation bout this song - I think the lighting could be a bit better - and try to put more actions into the animation - it may be a lil harder to do because it's clay, but if you try it it has potential to be better. By the way, the audio is actually not "Tenacious D"...this was actually played on MadTV by a Canadian band called "Corky and the Juicepigs." Sadly they broke up. Funny nevertheless. Good job overall
As far as stick movies go, it's pretty smooth. Plot is pretty cliche - and I just realized the title of you movie has nothing to do with the movie. All I saw was just a thief stealing gold - there's nothing that has anything to do with assasination.
Not bad man
It was pretty good - and because it's a school project, I won't try to stab at you too much about the whole storyline, which is extremely cliche. But I'm curious - the fight scenes - they seem to remind me of a Jet Li movie - which I'm pretty sure where you took from and just coloured in the characters. Which movie is it? GOod graphics - wished the fighting scenes had more of the computer animation tho
Just some positive criticism - Like everyone said - I was mislead by the title. Nirvana does not translate into simply "a happy place". It's part of Hinduism - the higher place that a person reaches to if they live a full, good life. I don't see the connection of 2 stick guys killing each other dbz style and how they can reach that place. The title itself does not make any connection to the movie - I think you just thought the name would be cool and stuck it on your movie without research - and because of that, everyone is ripping your balls. The animation itslef is kinda smooth - but there are hardly any movements - just a blinding ball of light emerging from the hands and the stiffness of the characters does not do good justice of any dbz style movie. The backgrounds were done very nicely I'd say, but overall - it wasn't terrible - but could've been better
Not to be a ball buster, but as you can see, I put 10 for graphics, but overall 5. Somehow I think in any flash, if you're going to make a flash on something that really needs to be authentic, any modifications to the story makes the whole thing really tacky. Jesus looked like he was straight out of a kung fu movie, and it just doesn't make sense Judas would still be alive since he hung himself. The whole concept of Jesus coming back to kill everyone defies everything that Jesus is. It's just an opinion - not bashing, but i have the say, the graphics are excellent - ideas are misguided tho
It's good to see something a little original...(with sticks anyway) The ninja is very convincing not as an idiot, but rather a carefree person. I really enjoyed the comedy aspect of the whole thing, especially when he moon walks for no reason - i laughed for like 10 minutes - keep it up
As you can see I've given you quite a generous mark for the graphics as I can honestly say the animation is very smooth...however I find the plot to be too deja vu and somewhat confusing. It's better to just say what you want to say instead of using fancy words to make it sound good. Otherwise it's good - but been seen before.
