Madness Antipathy Madness Antipathy

Rated 5 / 5 stars

He did not die, prepare for Madness!

It's simple. Here we have one the most technically skilled animator on Newgrounds, throwing in the sixth movie of the prized and glorified flash animation - Madness. Creating what many have tried to achieve but usually failed, raw violence, without the need of a detailed plot, Madness is a gory blood fest that begins to mess with the mind as you watch them.

Is there more to the twisted violence and overall dull colour scheme than simple action? For what seems like the fourth time our hero has been killed, and has gone after a number of enemies, all of which have past on except for the seemingly invincible clown, is the Madness series coming to a close?

Maybe, but it won't be due to the dieing out of the series, as the most recent incarnation has been a complete blast from start to finish - and the reason why I question the continuation of the series is due to the fact that our hero didn't die for the first time since the original episode. Whether this is due to size restrictions or truly a step in a different direction remains to be seen, but all I can say is that the next episode is certainly looking to be a heart stopper.

For me, Madness Apotheosis was a standing tall winner for the best Madness movie, but it appears that we now have a challenger. Now torn apart to the point that Krinkels is struggling to tear apart any more of our hero's face, the protaginist stands up and persues his enemy, through some simple buildings that I can't say we haven't seen before, but before long, we are viewing a train chase, through carriages, on top of carriages, hell, even falling off carriages, and the action continues. Blood, gore, and limb dismemberment are all apparent, and this time it appears that our hero is in a less relaxed mood than before, and out in an angered frenzy. He's now jumping on fighters, using their heads as weapons, and even, as a final shot, given a small frown of engagement.

It's not hard to see that Madness is an important part in Flash history, and is simply one of the great pioneers in fast action paced motion-tween graphics. Whether the Madness series is soon coming to a close or not, it will not be forgotten any time soon, if ever. Prepare for Madness.

Flash Comedy Extravaganza Flash Comedy Extravaganza

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Brilliant idea - Brilliantly executed

This was such a bold idea to what everyone is thinking - whether they know it or not. I myself have wondered what people see in sprite animation of Link, MegaMan, and Mario, and I usually ignore them.

This idea gets across swiftly and cleverly, and is hilarious in the process. The beginning with the Anime made me crack up as I always tell my friend that Animes are always about trying to find some special gem or something - and the hair was a bonus.

Some excellent graphics tied in with some purposelly crap voice work when needed, and excellent voice work needed at other times. The way you attack other flash genres, creators, and styles is great. Keep up the excellent work.



StarCraft: The Return StarCraft: The Return

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Excellent!

Wow. This is just awesome. First of all I'd like to say excellent work on the first one, but this takes the cake - it was absolutely awesome. And it's not just because of the action, story, things like that - but in the climax of this episode, my heart was really pounding when one of the marines got close to death. It's a talented thing to be able to make people care about your characters - but you've really done it - Excellently. The script writing was fantastic - with all the squabling, and your ability to fit a detailed storyline in a short movie.

If there were any shortcomings, I'd have to say there could be some improvements in the graphics - not all the time of course - sometimes it looked incredible. Also, as much as I enjoyed the accents (I'm aussie), sometimes it seemed a bit odd that everyone had them compared to the real game where everyone had American. Apart from that, absolutely incredible. I'll be looking out for the sequel.


LogFish responds:

Cheers for all that! I'm going to stick with Kiwi Accents now, and blow to everyone who hates them. Not every character in SC has american accents either! (BC for example). I hope you'll enjoy the next one too, sounds like it's going to be difficult to match this one for you :)


SW The Earth's Fate Intro SW The Earth's Fate Intro

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Looks pretty cool. You've got talent.

A very promising series awaits, no doubt. Me, I love Star Wars. And although I don't strongly welcome the Expanded Universe with trying to bring back the Empire, your flash looks amazing anyway.

The only problem that I can pick out is the strange part when you said "And The Return Of Darth Maul!" and it had a picture of Darth Vader. Are you aware that Darth Maul is the Phantom guy from Episode 1 with the double-sided lightsaber?

Apart from that small hiccup, good trailer, the music worked almost proffesionally, plus it is also one of my favourite tracks. So good work, and good luck with this series/flash. I look forward to see you and your works in the future.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

A very well expressed movie.

I am one of those guys who gets a good laugh out of some of the stuff on ebaum's world, but only now do I realise that you may be telling the truth. Thanks for telling me this. And I'm really pleased that you've come back at him in such an intruiging and well designed way. You could have spammed the forums there and flamed him there, or you could release a terrible flash movie, that just says "Ebaum sucks! eeasahh!" But instead you've taken the time to make not only an incredible flash movie, but an important message. It's catchy, and it puts Ebaum in the dirt. Good work!

Star Worms Star Worms

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Great Movie!

Combining the best movie series with the best game series, it's not hard to screw up this style, but luckily, the final product was superb. The graphics were outstanding, with little worm troopers, it just looked awesome. The other thing I loved was the fact you wern't afraid to break the boundaries a bit (eg. GG and Obi-Wan fighting), and I think it made it all the more interesting, and that you didn't know what would happen next. I was however hoping to see Darth Vader do something, but he ended up doing absolutely nothing! If you make another one of these, I would really like to see him get into combat. But apart from that, the movie is near-perfection. I love it!

Hahaha! They got own3d!

Great stuff! That was hilarious. I really shouldn't be laughing at people just getting totally hurt, but, whatever! Man that was great. The whole idea is just classic. I just can't write what I'm feeling here so I'll just say it was awesome. Great work. It would have been cooler if it was longer with some more ownag3, but as long as you keep making new ones, I'm happy. Once again great work man.

-Duel- -Duel-

Rated 4 / 5 stars

A good solid movie, great music

Wow! As a first, it's amazing. It was a nice movie with some awesome moves, portraying proper humans well. It didn't need a story, it was just a black guy fighting a white guy, and it worked. Excellent movie by the way. Fit perfectly with the movie and had those awesome notes.

It fell a bit short though, which stopped me from giving you those extra marks, as well as the fighting getting a bit repedetive.

Apart from these small problems, a great movie! Excellent, keep making!



Star wars madness request Star wars madness request

Rated 5 / 5 stars

Wow! Superb! This is gonna rock my world!

I love Star Wars! I love Madness! This is the two combined! I'm shaking at how cool and how wonderous the full version of this is gonna be. Luckily for me, I don't have to worry about it making mistakes, or problems with sound, because I know this movie is in safe hands. Your obviously an expert on Madness and Star Wars!
Although I did notice that the lightsaber hilts were modeled off the movies, you can type in "lightsaber" in google images and the fourth one there leads you to access of most of the lightsabers in the entire saga.

Sorry if you've already got one of these sites!


MarkArandjus responds:

Dang!
I did not see that.
No I just typed something like Obi's saber and you get a pic of a model or something.
Nice pics though, this could help.
Aww look at Yoda's saber. It's so small and cute! HEHE
Nope no madness or star wars expert.
Infact this is ym first madness animation EVER.
Not even a small tiny thing before this. Not even practice stuff. I just like to do my homewrok when I go do something. It did however take me a while to develop my lightsaber animation. And it just got better, so even better saber guaranteed.

Thanks for the link and review!


The Lightsaber Fight The Lightsaber Fight

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very, very nice movie.

You stuck to the Star Wars style very well, as well as the Madness series. Beutifully drawn, it was almost as well drawn as the Madness cartoons! Bringing the two series' together is a great thing, since they obviously work perfectly together. I just can't help but think that the movie would be better with a higher frame rate. But, there is a size limit I suppose...
