It's refreshing to see rotoscoping animation again. It was very well done and fit the feeling of this funny parody. You nailed the "Doom Gameplay Experience" perfectly. I use the knuckle duster all the time, all while hopped up on anabolic steroids provided by the UAC.
This is exactly how the Pokemon game universe works. You captured the feeling of it perfectly. Excellent artwork and animation that fit with the feel of the parody itself.
Very well done animation and art style that not only pays tribute to the Hokuto No Ken OVA Movie, but lampoons it perfectly! For the most part, these key scenes that you have parodied are all you would need to see in order to 'understand' the OVA movie. Of course, the writers of the original OVA movie pretty much messed up the first story arc from the story trilogy by trying to mash up all of the 'dramatic' events to make a quick cash grab from fans of the series.
It's too bad you didn't include Rei or Boss Fang; I'm sure those guys would have been made fun of correctly in your hands.
If you liked this parody, you should check out the live action film of FOTNS. Knocks mine out of the water.
It's been a long time since I had a good laugh.
What a surprise. That's a pretty keen 'optical illusion' with a humorous twist. I got a good laugh from this. Anyway, I certainly hope this passes. I'm also looking forward to what else you can come up with. Good work.
I have more ideas already, I'm just waiting to see how this does first. Thanks for the review.
A great and original tribute to Voltron
As a longtime fan of "Lion Force" Voltron, I can honestly say that this is the first time I have ever seen a 'kid', 'SD' or 'chibi' version of "Lion Force" Voltron. You have not only reminded me of how good and historic this legendary character is, but you've also entertained me by producing such an original piece of work based on one of my favorite 'robot' characters. You've managed to capture the light-heartedness and humor of anime series like "SD Gundam" but have managed to keep the serious aspect of what made "Lion Force" Voltron so great. I look forward to your next flash and the further adventures of "Kid Voltron". Perhaps you'd be willing to have "Vehicle Force" Voltron make an appearance as well?
I couldn't stop laughing for 5 minutes. Anakin sure does love Padme, doesn't he? LOL
Now this is one hell of a tribute!
From the Contra music covers, to the overall feel of the movie, it brought back so many memories of the original NES game. Excellent work! I'll cut the review short and just say.... "If you're a fan of the NES game 'Contra', WATCH THIS MOVIE IMMEDIATELY!"
A good MGS3 spoof.
From the introduction, to the actual feature itself, I was laughing quite a bit. Even at the 'press play' screen, there was already that goofy looking likeness of Arnold. Once the feature started, I was laughing quite hard at the subtitles, especially when it brought up the 'strange Arnold scream'. Excellent work. MGS3 and Arnold spoofs are always funny, but this one is definitely up there.
I'm surprised somebody even remembers this game!
I thought I was the only one in this world who probably played this game and enjoyed it back in 92'. Back then, this was one of those 'underground' SNES titles which was quite hard to find, but I was lucky enough to rent this great game and beat it within 2 days.
It's great to know that there's actually someone else out there that liked this game, especially enough to make a decent flash movie to spoof it.
Graphics: 6 - I'm not really too big of a fan of 'sprite' based flash films, but I was quite impressed by how you managed to capture and eventually animate the characters to move just like their video game counterparts.
Style 8 - Anyone that can make a decent flash film out of a subject that was underrated will get high points from me. (Even more if it brought back a bit of nostalgia in my eyes)
Sound 8 - KMFDM? GREAT CHOICE! What got me though, is that you ripped the actual music from the game. (Those were some catchy tunes, weren't they?)
Violence 2 - There was a cameo from a Metroid, as well as the subject of 'Kendo', which involves hitting an opponent with a shinai/bokken stick.
Interactivity 0 - All I did was press 'play', so this shouldn't really apply.
Humor 7 - I got a couple of laughs from each of the situations that our beloved heroine had encountered.
Overall 7 - Anyone that pays tribute to old, underrated video games in the form of a decent flash film will get high marks from me. Good work. Hopefully you'll be making more "Kendo Rage" flash films.
Thank you very much. I appreciate getting responces that have thought put into them. Although the animation of Jo was kinda off, and missing a lot of frames. Something i wish, in retorospect, i had put more priority on making it look correct.
The music in that game is some of my favorites. I often found myself humming "Cliff Hanger" before. hehe. The intro was neat i thought. KMFDM is one of my favorite groups ever, so i couldn't resist putting them in my first movie.
As far as humor it seems that either people think that the humor in this move was funny (becuase of the unexpected nature of the cameos) or they thought it was lame... I actually think that the truth lies somewhere in the middle ^_^;; Somewhere between funny and kinda lame. I could have done more with it, i think.
Lastly, if I do make another Kendo Rage movie, it'll probably be better than this one is.
Man, not only do you own a cool website but you also write songs about the things that just elude us. I too, have yet to beat Pac-Man, but your song just inspires me to keep going at it. I feel your pain, man. I feel your pain. Preach it brother! Oh, my review: Graphics- Very, very well drawn. Totally fit the song perfectly. Sound- Sheeeeeit. This is the best part of the film. Nuff' said.
