Oh my GOD!
It's me ironlunch again. Holy CRAP I wasn't expecting this. Sorry, i'm reviewing before I watch the vid... I'll get back to you right quick!!!
Hah, that's alright. Hope you enjoyed it!
Oh come on...
You're too humble for your own good. This really is very good, the only flaw with it is that it's really detached, almost sporadic, but that's easily explainable since it was originally going to be in a collab. But everything in here is funny, and you play to your strengths admirably. The unique style and animation, the quirky voice acting, and points for the very amusing subtitles.
On a sortof related note... THATH 2 ... gimme gimme.
I feel sorry for bashing your HOTM now. This is genuis. I'm not sure if I've ever had to suppress manic laughter in the middle of class as hard as I had to today. I seriously don't understand why this isn't at least a 4.0, maybe too many people got confused by the menu.
There's only one problem I can see...
IT'S APRIL ALREADY AND DER AINT NO THATH2!
Probably because of it being so damn evil. I mean, you have to hit the play button like 6 times to actually play it, and then it just yells at ya. It's like a spam cartoon, except it's animated GOOD, so it's like a mixed bag sort of thing. I love it for that, though, so yay!
AND I KNOW, I'VE BEEN LAZY WITH THE HEART AND THE HAND. IT'LL BE OUT EVENTUALLY.
Wait a minute! It appears as if it is MARCH! Not February! And no THATH2? ... and here you were getting my hopes up...
ANYWAY.. I love this and I want more. But... I'm mad or anything. Take as much time as you want. Gee, you could release THATH2 next Valentines for all I care, as long as you're still working on it! ^-^
Heh, yeah, it'll be released... soon. I don't know how soon, but it'll be soon, damnit. Heh. Thanks for watching, lunch, I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Shows its Age
I can understand why you truned to the Siblings series. This cartoon was a bit too long for its own good, and seeing all the drawing you had to do, it didn't seem worth it. This is the first HOTM I have ever seen, so I don't know how this one compared to your REAL first one, but this did not intrest me in seeing the rest.
Firstly, in this animation, the jokes were slow and badly paced. There were many funny background things going on, like the punk rock song and the bit about the re-runs, but since stuff is happening, its hard to focus on both. The story is a weird one, no real complaints, but I've never heard or seen anything like that before (except the use of Jesus as a character, don't you notice almost EVERY cartoon nowadays has him as a character?)
You certainly have done quite a job perfecting you art and animation with the Siblings series, sinde this animation was jaggy and strange. Also, things apparently happen for no reason. Why does Hotrod kill Jesus in the first place? Why does the ghost of dead-but-also-alive Jesus talk to Bobert's friend? Why does Jesus go on the air? WHY?
Oh well, guess plot doesn't really matter in a weird concept like this. HOWEVER, some of the dialogue is strange. Like when Jesus tales them all to that... one... clothing store, nothing really makes sense.
I laughed a little, but I'm wondering why you would remake this. If the origonal was over 15 minutes long like you say and had the origonal "acclaim" (and by acclaim I mean 'less that 3.00' score), why spend so much time re-drawing and animating all of it again?
Big fan of the Siblings, and I think it was a great choice to come out of this series to pursue one that has more comedic oppertunities and less drawing/animating.
Yes, very long. Got bored partway through. I know you're using audio from quite a while ago, but I would have updated it. The audio is lacking in comedic timing and actig quality. Sorry to be blunt, just constructive critisisms. Being a VERY new artist just about to submit the first of my own work, I can see how the original HOTM was impressive for a new artist. But after seeing this update, I'm glad you decided to move onto much bigger and better things.
It wasn't redrawn as much as it was repaced. It's pretty slow, yes, but the original is remarkably slower. Pretty much 90% of this was done in the summer of 05, but I hadn't touched it since and it seemed a waste to not finish it when it's so close to being done. Not the best decision I ever made, but I'm not particularly caring about that. It is what it is, a piece of my personal history. I learned lessons during the making of this series that I still use to this day and there are people who still watch my stuff that like it, so it has fans... just a LOT fewer fans than Siblings.
Anyone who says my current work is too fast paced should check this out and see how SLOW it can be. I'll find a good medium someday, I'm sure, but still. Thanks for trying to watch it.
Especially the Sparta bit in the end. This is probably the best Phoenix Wrong I've ever seen!
OMGREALLY?! D8 Thanks a lot, man. =D
Preach on Brother
I'm 14 too! .. But I don't have Flash.
Anyway, nice job! And thank your friend, 'cause the voice acting was sweet. The animation isn't QUITE as well done as the original, but it's still awesome. And I like the humor.
Words cannot express my enjoyment.
You, my man, are the funniest Flash Artist ever. THIS deserves a Front Page and many, many awards.
A toast! To your future at Newgrounds! *clink*
This flash is awesome
Don't listen to that fag behind me. This flash owns.
What the hell? It was creepy enough she french-kissed a fox (freak!), but then it changed into a half-naked horny guy? ZOMGWTFFFFFFFFF!!!!!!
Rest of it was pretty good. Decent animation. Some humor. Extreemly disturbing, but a decent flash nonetheless.
