The Life of Something The Life of Something

Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

An eye-opener.

I like how this movie rips apart the prejudice I had of Something's life.

Seriously, the thing is fun and it even shows some method to its madness, that alone puts it above a big bunch of other CC movies.
If you ever wanted to feature a song from my Audio Page in your submissions, it'd be a pleasure. Good day!

At last, an insightful review that recognizes what "A Day In the Life of Something" is all about. If you have enough spirit, you can make even the most mundane routine pulsate with excitement.

[2006] REBOOT 7 [2006] REBOOT 7

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Definitely progressive

Hi, I'm responding to your PM in a minute but I felt like properly reviewing this. I don't know anything about Flash programming but this falls under 'cinema' which I'm considerably more experienced with. :-)

The experience of watching this was very refreshing to say the least, it is delightful to see so much work put into every frame, this is truly what more people should use Newgrounds for - as a platform to experiment, develop one's own style and possibly working toward making the step from amateur to professional, which I think you could certainly pull off.

This movie starts out as a double-edged spoof, of Newgrounds sprite movies as well as of blockbusters like the Matrix, but it starts exceeding that pretty soon. The narration is very similar to David Lynch's, in the sense that I don't really know what the fuck is going on but it intrigues me and I really find myself moving to the edge of my seat. Characters are introduced very bluntly (in the best sense of the word) and we are treated with lines like "Should that guy be doing that?" which make sense in meaning but not in wording. The whole atmosphere you create allows you to even include footage of yourself - which is a pretty bold move, but worked extremely well in this case.

Of course there are some flaws, there's bound to be, but they are mainly found in the montage, there are points where it slows down somewhat unnecessarily. Another thing is that your choice of music is a little too much on the explanatory side at times, as if you think the animation itself isn't enough to get the point across. It is.
I love, however, how you shrouded that particular song in mystery and I'm curious to see how that turns out. And anyone who uses the Rite of Spring in a movie must at least have the right idea.

(Reviews are such a good opportunity to be totally elitist, hehe.)

I'll need to go see the previous parts as well when I have more time on my hands, but I can tell you now that I very much admire your efforts, and cinematographic talent. I haven't seen something this genuine on here since David Firth's "The child that smelt odd". In due time, it will attract the right people to help you further ahead, and I think it should definitely get its own collection on this site.

To sum up, truly ace. Talk to you soon.

Thanks for using my track, I think it worked nicely.

This was enjoyable. I liked some parts more than others, blah blah, you're not pretending it's anything groundbreaking so it's all good, we had our bit of fun :)

I hope you'll get lots of love, hugs, kisses, excessive saliva and massive boners this Valentine's Day.


catbrush responds:

Hahahaha, you're great, sir. Thanks for making the track I used for the flash. I made it especially for you, so it makes me feel warm and fuzzy to hear you say that it was enjoyable.

I hope you get a giant boner in public, and happy V-Day! <3

Cool!

Thanks for using my track!

I really enjoyed this. I haven't played everything yet, but I'm probably going to return to this for a bit of skill-enhancing pastime :)
Good interface, simple but effective, the window opens a little bit to small so I have to scroll to see the edges, but I don't know if that's anything you can solve. Otherwise, you seem to have been pretty thorough with this.

Great job! Fifened!

Quite good. Aeroplane is nice, but you might consider to compress the files and make a selection of RHCP songs.
The game itself works perfectly, so no probs with that.

Some points:
- You made one block have the same color as the background.
- After the song is done, there's only silence :)
- An option to turn off the sound?
- Mention the controls in the intro screen. P for pause was a nice find, but no one will know - I accidently found it.
- Also mention how the score is calculated.
- I don't know how hard this is to implement, but I'd like to have a window that shows what the next block will be.

Eternal Agony Eternal Agony

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Hey, I don't know if you remember me, but I decided to come back to the NGAP, went looking for some good metal, waded through shitty Dream Theater and Evanescence emulations and then stumbled across a familiar name. I then was treated to 7 minutes of solid, old-school riffage. So I decided to leave a review!

Well, pretty much every metal band I know (this is not saying much) poked its head around the corner here: Melvins, Slayer, Napalm Death, Helmet, even Meshuggah somewhat. That's not to imply the riffs are formulaic, more that they are in-your-face, immediately dominating. They show technical prowess without slipping into wank. Very tasteful.
For what is essentially a bunch of ideas taped together, the only part where it really felt disjointed for me was around 4:00 when the 12/8 riff kicks in. Otherwise it flows rather nicely and the build-ups within the parts are great.
The drums sound okay but seem a bit too much in the front of the mix. Your guitar sounds yummy.

This ended up somewhat longer than I expected... To sum up, great work, I enjoyed very much!

How you doing nowadays?

Tune is awesome. Awesome.

Funny this is called apple because with that oriental lick, it's like a Beatles outtake remixed by Aphex Twin (or rather, Brandon MacNeil).
At first I wasn't sure about that silly sine part (1:25), but the way it segues back into the main section is pure gold. On repeated listens things make more and more sense. The whole rhythm section is more than tasty. This review is just as herky-jerky as the song :)

Good to see you still have that knack to make organic and exciting tunes without resorting to overproduction! Hope you're still at it.

No headache here! 10/10

Yay pitterz!

You're being overly hard on this track mate, it's really lovely tho I agree that the drums don't seem to serve their purpose optimally. As it stands this is one of the better examples of adding-layer-upon-layer-composing this site has to offer and the result is very enticing, think you could've easily doubled the length of the final part.
Vocals on this, dunno, I'd let it segue into, or follow up a somewhat similar track that does have vocals.

Got a new track up as well, Crystalline (rough version). Love to hear what u think.
Take care xx
