Here's an Idea
Try making something worth watching, if you want more views. You'd be surprised how much word of mouth helps.
Needs Some More Work
It's obvious that you put a few hours work into this as there is some frame-by-frame present and the movie itself is a few minutes long. I understand it's very difficult to draw in Flash using a mouse, but great art can make or break a movie. If you have the talent and interest to do better, scrape up the money to buy a Wacom tablet.
I was more impressed with the effort put into this than by anything else, your art needs work and your sound effects are decent at best, but it's clear you know your way around Flash and are able to make above average animations. If you're willing to put in the time, that is. I guess that's up to you though!
It's very uncommon for me to find a movie worth voting higher than 2 on just by picking random movies out of the Portal, it's even more uncommon that I vote 5 on said movie, and extremely rare that I favorite it.
This movie has all 3 of those conditions, easily. Truly impeccable animation (with some very impressive effects) as well as a brilliant original score make this one truly special. The completely original premise is whimsical and magical, as well as entertaining.
Laugh Out Loud Funny
This movie was fucking hilarious, I can't believe I've never seen anything else by you before. The animation was good, the voice acting was good enough to be funny. This movie reminded me of JohnnyUtah's style of humor, which is definitely a good thing. Seriously hilarious, keep up the good work.
Not Your Usual Style
This wasn't your usual style at all, and I really enjoyed that. I have to admit I was pretty surprised to see an E rated JohnnyUtah movie, but it was excellent. You have serious skills at animating, and a knack for consistently cranking out entertaining original content.
Keep up the good work!
Sizing is All Wrong
The animation wasn't bad but the framing of it was. Was that thing at the beginning supposed to be a camera? I guess I didn't really get it. Also, Madness has been done a zillion times already. Try doing something original, use your own ideas next time! You're not a bad animator so I'd like to see what you could do with something that you made up.
It's very rare that I find a movie that instantly gets a 5/5 from me, especially if I'm just browsing the new submissions. This was an exception. The animation was very good, especially for someone just starting to use Flash. I can tell you put a lot of effort into it.
My only complaint is the lack of sound effects. Maybe the song alone wasn't enough? I'm not sure, sound effects might have ruined it but I think they would have been nice to have. Anyways, well done, keep up the good work.
Not Bad for a First Try
Normally I dislike when authors beg people not to blam their work. Just get better at it! But in this case, you've clearly put a good amount of effort in and it sounds like you have bigger plans in mind. It will be fun to see what you come up with!
Yeeeaaahhh... I realize now that begging was a whoopsie. I'm gonna go delete that and hope that the five-hundred odd people who saw that weren't too offended.
Glad to hear you're interested!
I am now ashamed to admit I haven't seen your work on NG before. This Flash was incredible, from start to finish. It reminded me of Genndy Tartakovsky's work with Samurai Jack, and I hope you take that as a compliment because I loved that show to death.
The music was well chosen, MGS has some of the best videogame music around, aside from Halo.
Anyways, well done, keep up the good work and I hope to see more from you in the future.
Well Animated, and Extremely Cool!
While stick movies are nothing new, seeing a well animated battle is still interesting to me. A yo -yo is also something I've never seen used in battle before, so you get points for that. I voted 5 to help your score, but I'm giving 8/10 on the review because stick movies really aren't anything new. You're obviously a talented animator, try adding voices next time and animating something more difficult than sticks!
