Well first of I should say that your style is nothing of... AMAZING! It isn't horrible though... but then again it's not good either. Nothing in your animation seemed to flow... things need to flow or else it looks like the animation is a little stiff.
Now onto the actual music video. The story was horrible and unorigional... I mean, I have seen tons of videos to beautiful songs like these, but they don't match the style of the song, and there was absolutely no story, I've seen tons of music videos that contain exactly the same material you have put into your video, and I've given them all the same rating.
Now before you start commenting "so yeah, stop reviewing things cuz it seems like your writing for the sake of writing... you dont know shit..." I've got some constructive criticism.
Your animations are too stiff. It's quite simple too fix with your style of animating. Just add some blurred shots of the charecters when they move. It would smooth out the animation.
As for the story, you have a very... "creative" mind. And with your "creative" mind I would suggest songs more goofy like. Try a Weird Al song and if you don't like any weird and cooky songs... I suggest a new style.
Now please do not try to make me look like an idiot by writing what you did on all the reviewers who tried to help you. I would suggest you should take our reviews as consrtuctive criticism, not as your average school bully who will make fun of you for everything.
Accepting constructive criticism is the first step... trust me. Unless you accept the criticism, you will never do better.
That's about it. You have plenty of potential and could definittly do well.
It was okay, the animation was nice for sprite movie, and the voices made me laugh inside. Note: "laugh inside". This was nothing laugh out loud at all, the voices were too low to be funny, and it sounded like you were making a poor attempt to be egorapter (except in a more retarded way). Thus, I agree. But why did this make front page!? Many people spend hours and hours trying to make a decent flash that newgrounds likes, and a movie that probably took you like a day to make gets a front page! But I soppose reviews aren't meant for saying rude comments like "YoU SuCk FoR GeTtInG FrOnT PaGe!@?/" (by the way, how do people type like that. It takes so fucking long!) So I probably instead be congratulatating you! Congrats!
*ahem* back to the review -_-'
So like I said voice acting seemed rushed, Animation wasn't long enough or non-spritish to count as a part, and it barely made me laugh...
5/10 - 2/5 Work on your voice acting... that's all I have too say...
An almost perfect 9/10, in 2 ways
Individual Video Review
Animation: 10/10 Amazing, so much beauty and detail. It was amazing...
Story: 9/10 The story of this one was good, of course there were some parts that were too expected but it was a good ending.
Origionality: 8/10 Of course the whole "it ends how it begun" thing is quite overused, and would normally dissapoint me, but it was pretty origional
Sound effects: N/A
Final Comment: 9/10 It was amazing, The animation was very well done, there was nice sync, good flow, (which is the repetivness of a style of syncing used if anyone doesn't know) the story is tied up, a decent ending.
Animation: 10/10 the animation was very well done and fleud, Everything was beautiful (curse my 2nd grade spelling), I liked to see the style as the main charectors sped of out of the airport return after a VERY serious Step 4.
Story: 10/10 It was a very nice, devoliping storyline, some things were minorly expected as i said before but, very minor.
Origoinality: 8/10 The idea was... very origional, My only problems were that, the "different people" idea is used much, and again the "how it ends is how it begun" thing.
Sound effects: N/A
9.3/10 which rounds to a 9/10 Good concept, unorigional, but good, very beautiful fleud animation.

Random but fun...
Could you tell me how to scroll the list though? Evertime I scroll with the mouse it always just scrolls the page and crashes the game
One of the most funnest fight games I EVER played!
Things that were great: The fighting style used, It was amazing it made me feel like I was playing an epic fight from a sprite flash...I was although quite dissapointed there was only one fighting key but it's alright for a flash game...
Things that weren't so great: The controls were slippery and the zooms would mess me up. The enemies either seemed really hard or way to easy. And the game was too short
But i guess this deserves a 9/10 or 4.5/5
Art's a difficult thing to stick with. Ultimately, there will always be a group of people who will look at what you create and go, "This is fucking shit I hate it." So you are RIGHT, everyone is a critic about everything. We all have our likes and dislikes and because of this we all feel our viewpoint is important for others to acknowledge. This is especially hard to hear as an artist because you work your heart out on a project and it doesn't get the recognition you feel it deserves. The important thing to remember though is that someone out there will like your "shitty dick drawings" and see some sort of beauty in it, and that's why artists keep painting, writers keep writing, and musicians keep playing.
4/5 Keep playing, bitch!
I... Can't tell if I like this song...
I actually love the crunchy bass, and I think it goes REALLY well with synth you add around 1:01. I also believe that the kick fits the song but it's too clean with the bass... It just feels like you should make the kick dirtier, you know? But that I think is more of a matter of style and opinion.
It also seems a little repetitive to me... Sure it's catchy and when the drop came it sounded like it would really change, but you just changed the rythem to the bass, and the chord progression ultimately stayed the same... that and there wasn't enough "ear candy" for the progression to seem different.
Still not sure if I like it or not, I felt myself moving to the song at times and other times thinking "this is kinda boring", so my review score is gonna just reflect the score of this piece at this time, but still, I give you props for trying something different.
So the song's basically just repetitive then? Yeah, I guess I can see that. I didn't think it was too bad, however.
Thanks for listening though and I'm glad you didn't completely hate it :)
I refuse to tell you wether or not it's good or not due to the fact that it's mixed awfully and some things you just can't hear... But I'll tell you I'm interested, and that if you get your music mixed better I'd look forward to more stuff like this.
i hear ya. i hear it. it's true.
HOWEVER... other links whats might be to this elsewhere do exist. i can't say anymore, right? which is kinda weird, anymore. this is the Commercial Century, right? we're all walking commercials for ourselves. especially online.
but the main problem with this mix is that it's in 96k, which SEVERELY hampers all of the atmospherics of the guitars and vocals. which are a bit overdone, for my taste. the autotune doesn't work so well with reverb. but i tried to use it more for like a robotic (or futuristic) effect than for practical reasons.
also, i don't often write pop songs.
thanks for the review.
