Ebaumsworld has got to go! Seriously! That site is only fitting for people who are complete n00bs to the internet. And sadly, there are too many people like that.
This movie shows roughly what ebaumsworld is all about: stealing content and making money off it. I swear, if I see any of my works there I would flood ebaumsworld with forum messages and e-mails to get it removed.
This movie, however, is nothing compared to the ebaum bashing stuff I see on YTMND.
Oh, and in response to whatever was said earlier by ebaumsworld fans: nothing on ebaumsworld is original work. And most of it isn't even submitted by the original authors. Whoever says Newgrounds makes money off of it's Flash portal may be right, but there are a few fundamental differences. One of them is the fact that Newgrounds is a site that has the priority of being a flash portal for everyone (making money is not the top priority). Also, all the works here are submitted by their original author (in contrary to ebaumsworld). Eric Bauman is an arrogant kid who thinks he's so very great and would probably brag about how great his site is to everyone in real life. You can really see that in the e-mails he sent to YTMND. Those e-mails were extremely hypocrite and arrogant.
MrPants3000, this wasn't stolen from Disasterlabs. The original comic was made loong before either 8-Bitch and 8-Bit were made. When 8 bit theater was a success, Disasterlabs threw a giant parody (or a giant FU) to 8 bit theater by making "8-bitch theater fyve", which parodied 8 bit theater 5 before it even came out.
Anyway, great movie.
I don't really care if the story or graphics aren't yours. Great job on this!
This is a tough one.
Graphics: 6. it is pretty well drawn (well, most of it), but poorly animated. And with poorly animated I mean that in a lot of cases I have to put effort into trying to understand what they're doing. The 3D parts didn't really fit in the movie.
Style: 8! A completely ****ed up storyline, but I can't blame you for that after what I did to the Truth and Reconciliaion. Homerun...
Sound: Nutshell-ish. It doesn't fit with the animation, so... 4
Humor: I guess this is the main idea of the movie.... A bit... confusing... But still sort of funny. And some points actually are funny.
Overall: To be honest, the reason I won't go lower than this is because of the fact that it is Halo. I won't dare going lower than a 6 though. The amount of story compared to the humor just somehow isn't right.
Needs more work
This movie was, in overall, not so good.
The graphics were made as if you tried to draw things from memory when you aren't good at that. Try using reference pictures for your Halo material. Plus don't try to make everything look like a platform game. Not chief from the side and grunt from the side. Or marines facing the screen.
The animation was pretty slow. I don't think people want to see a Masterchief slowly walk past the screen with nothing happening. Try to make it faster.
As for sound, it was not so good either. There were loops and complete soundtracks used, which is not really appreciated. Try putting some variety in the sounds. Plus it's best to use stream sounds instead of start or event sounds.
And humor. A bit weird, but I did like the walmart sign falling.
In overall, I regrettably have to say it's crap. I do, however, look forward to your future creations if you get better at Flash.
For the time being, I suggest you practice more in Flash before you submit things to a site such as Newgrounds again, because the bar is very high here.
The movie was pretty strange and vague at some points.
Some of the voices were just overacted, which added humor. The players' voices were a lot like "DBZ in a nutshell".
The graphics were minimal. It's just in the gap between OK and bad. But in the animation part you fail.
The music was both too soft and at a lot of moments they didn't fit in.
And the story doesn't really fit into the real Halo world. The Arbiter and the other Elites work together with the humans and if the Arbiter ever meets Masterchief after Halo 2, they will most likely work together instead of fight. There are some other details, but what the hell, it's just a movie.
On the other hand, it was enjoyable. I watched it and I did have some fun doing so.
Also, I don't really beleive Waterman did voices for your movie.
This is a really good movie. The graphics were pretty nice, but it's so funny!
However, I did get the hang of it once, playing on Heroic.
I see flood behind me, run past a Carrier, boom. Flood dead! Woo!
That was funny. I am a Nintendo fan, because they simply make great games. Some time ago I thought Mario Kart was just some silly racing game with Mario. That turned out to be mostly true, but you did have to replace the word "silly" with "kikass!!1" with all caps! I now own a Gamecube with Mario Kart: Double Dash! And I just played Super Smash Bros. Melee with 3 other friends (take that, 2 controller port Playstation!). Those who bash Nintendo are ignorant people who have never played on a (recent) Nintendo system for more than 2 minutes.
PSP is good with its extras and such (I'd want one if I could), but I'll just go for the true gamers' road, which is the DS. Simply because the PSP goes for graphics (and extras to prevent its users from getting bored) and DS chooses gameplay.
I have a bunch of friends at school with who I play a lot of games. I have the Yoshi game, another guy has Polarium, another has Meteos, another has Goldeneye and so on. And if we get bored of that, I can still pwn them at the first person shooter Metroid Prime First Hunt.
Oh, and by the way: nice flash. I almost forgot that.
It was pretty funny.
Those are the graphically best fairies I've seen yet.
I hope you keep up the style and make bigger movies.
yeah, ill keep my style, and of course ill make better and longer movies :D
The song is Dutch, not German. The two languages are pretty similar, so it's easy to mess them up. The song is a Dutch parody of barbie girl.
Some of the funniest jokes here were unintended.
For example, the sock puppet says it has a beatiful body and it talks about its blonde hair (in Dutch).
The movie is, apart from being funny, nothing special. It's not complete and the graphics are not that good.
Mehh... You could still imagine hitler with that voice the male singer has.
God that was boring. It was simply some guy supposed to be Eminem getting insults from someone from a bootcamp. Boring animation, bad mouth movement, repetitive scene recycling. Technically, this is junk that only still lives because it is old.
I like some of Eminem's music, but that's not the low-vote reason.
I don't care whether it's Eminem, Marilyn Manson, Robin Williams, Britney Spears or any other artist. This is simply a movie that came out of hate. And things that come out of hate is usually crap. This is a good example.
