What's the Worst What's the Worst

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Not bad

But your lip syncing was off once it moved out to the hall.

Did you have your sounds set to "event" instead of "stream"?


GotRedOnYou responds:

It was part of the jam, so i concentrated on the animation not sound.
when the comp is over, i might add to this toon and give it a rework, i only had 48 hours to animate it. if your not an animator, (thats not that long), if you are, you should be able to understand.

Excellent choice in music.

The lips syncing was great, but the art in general left a bit to be desired.

Still good though.

Ha ha, Biitching.

Good job on the animation. Looks like that tablet is paying off :3

Also, glad to know that someone else listens to abs, hahaha.

Finally something decent from the KK, aside from shit Nogfish did.

Music Is An Epic Thing Music Is An Epic Thing

Rated 2 / 5 stars

Cute, Not a Flash

You admitted it yourself that it's all After Effects and 3D.

It has it's moments of being fancy and cool, but overall, it had nothing to do with music being epic. You just picked a really nice score and made a random movie to it.

Yeah, it's neat, but it needs to go somewhere like deviantArt, not Newgrounds.

Pretty funny, actually.

Although I was really hoping for that obligatory fat noise or ballon deflating when he lost his boner.

holy shit were you in my mind when i was making this? thats exactly what i wanted to be there, but unfortunately i didnt have enough time to get it :C.


Pokemon Master ep10 Pokemon Master ep10

Rated 2 / 5 stars

eh...

You should have been able to find sprites of the player in the grass versus just running overtop of it.

Also, Metapod doesn't forget tackle, so that's a bit flawed.


POKEMANMASTER responds:

Metapod forgetting tackle is the entire point of the joke. I mean, I don't think Epic Fail Guy is in Pokemon either, it's not a flaw, it's the point of the flash


Brawl Funnies [dick 3] Brawl Funnies [dick 3]

Rated 5 / 5 stars

I really could care less about the movie

And obviously, you too.

But I wholy agree with what you stated. I think what's more sad than the actual situation at hand is the reactions that I've seen in these comments. For example:

"And no, creating your own script and characters isn't that important, being funny and appealing to the public is." - G12IM88

His entire review basically made me die inside a little.

Anyways, thanks for doing this. I've seen a lot of journals about this, but obviously some little kid posting about how Madness makes his dick hard or that he thinks that rtil is a jerk is more important.

I think Tom made a really good move front paging this, just so people will read this. Even if people aren't going to read it and are just going to criticize the movie, which was truly just a formaility with a lemony zest of satire.

Thanks.

A few months ago ashford pride made a movie with a foreboding title. It was called "Awesome Grounds".

Well ladies and gentlemen, that's might as well what this site should be called (at least right now), with the top row on the front page slot dedicated to an "awesome" movie and an "awesome" parody, an "awesome" t-shirt in the newgrounds store, and pretty much every "awesome" movie in the top 100, along with han's "awesome's creed".

I can't go to newgrounds with seeing something not about egoraptor or his coveted video game parody series. It makes me wonder sometimes if pursuing anything but half-assed cartoons making mildly funny observations about video games laced with profanity is even worth it. Truly, they are what bring the masses of 13-year olds to this site, and thus increases traffic and competition in the internet world. But you have to ask yourself, with this sort of two-bit audience increasing in numbers, are they really interested in watching anything else?

I understand that it's a dog eat dog world in the online entertainment business, and to compete you have to pretty much put up content that a majority of internet browsers would click on. This includes either women or video games. Things they already know they want. And that's all they want. They sign up, watch more, and come back and do it again later. They're trained to know that what they want is easily accessible and is promoted all over the site.

Original content is often shuffled off to the bottom of the page, or never gets any attention to begin with. Now comes into play the whole 'they won't click on it unless there's a boob for the icon', etc etc. That's because they've been fashioned to think that way.

I'm not saying i have all the mysterious answers to the way people's minds work. But this much is true - if all people click on are breasts and video game icons, and you give them breasts and video game icons, you're not pushing the envelope.

Newgrounds is the epitome of user-generated content. We already have a massive advantage over youtube in the fact that making a cartoon involves so much more creativity than snappily editing your webcam footage. So instead of 200 cartoons coming out every minute, we have 200 cartoons coming out every day. That gives someone a better chance of breaking out and being discovered for his hard work, and a reward for a job well done.

But in the same way that viewers are trained that they don't have to go out of their way to avoid original content they would otherwise enjoy, authors are becoming more and more disenchanted with their personal creations and are turning to nerd culture icons and cheap tactics to get viewers.

I can't tell you how many animators I have spoken to that have shunned their own creations in favor of sub-pop culture parody and disjointed scripts sprinkled with toilet humor and profanity. a cartoon catering to everyone who's forgotten what cartoons are all about. And here we are shoving away everything about cartoons that was originally appealing and magical, because we're pretty much forced to.

I'm not pointing the finger at any one person here. I think it's part of the bigger picture - bigger than Newgrounds, too. But if people really care about the future of cartoons and animation, we wouldn't be seeing this kind of blatant favoritism.

People will find what they want if they want it. They don't need to be spoon fed it all.

For thirty years animators who strive to create something genuinely unique have gotten nothing but a slap in the face. It's sickening and it has to stop someday, before they all disappear.

Lastly, this post is not about me. I'm not writing this out of self-pity, bitterness or spite. I'm being honest. I care a lot about the future of animation, and what I see around me is very troubling. The industry is bad enough, but where the future lies is in the small corners of the animation world. Newgrounds is one of them. I spend a lot of time trying to encourage and teach frame-by-frame animation, and creating your own characters and scripts. That is what is important

Ugh... not again.

It was original the first time, albeit a bit cliche. But hey, Newgrounds is floundering in it's cesspool or originality nowadays.

But now that you've stretched it this fucking far... ugh.

the jokes are worse, the animation (for the most part) is horrible, and the only part I liked was the first one, which is accurate.

You should've stopped at 2. or 0.

Pretty Good

Short and sweet, but a bit predictable in the end.

Also, what is this "Newgrouds" site that you link to at the end :3
