Niravan - Dumb
That was...um...interesting to say the least. The graphics were above average but nothing revolutionary, nothing going above and beyond.
The animation was decent too, I only felt a lack animation in one scene, and that was where he was vomiting and it kept rising. That went on for ten-twelve seconds too long, which is a lot when your actually watching the video.
I too am going to take the side of the reviewer in front of me, and ask what kind of school allowed you to do this for a project, because this doesn't seem appropriate in the least bit?
The sound gets a 6 out of 10 from me, just because the only audio is the song, and the viewer either likes it or they don't, there's no secondary sounds to fall back on.
Overall, this is a very "different" video and after seeing, I still don't know what the hell it was about. Take it as a compliment or whatever Dan545, this is an above average music video and is definitely worth a glimpse.

Give it Away Now
Give it Away Now...what an amazing flash. I'm glad that there are still some fellow clock crew members that post decent animations.
The graphics were great and looked gorgeous, even in black and white. The style was straight from the Red Hot Chili Pepper's video which was a pretty unique style originally, and I think you managed to capture that style all around here.
The one thing that came to mind after this video was, why can the Clocks sing perfectly, but then talk in that robotic voice? Just something I'm thinking about, nothing really important.
You get a five for more and this video is going on my favorite list...which now is at a total of three submissions.
Very, very nice work Liqour_Clock, I hope to see more from you in the future.
TheBluntSDK gives "Give it Away Now" a 9 out of 10.
Wow...give it up for Sundial, one of maybe a dozen select Clock Crew members who can actually use flash. It's great to say some Clock Crew members who actually try to do good work, and this is what this is.
There graphics were top notch, my only problem is that at the end when they went to the Color Clocks' base, it was all grey inside, and lacked color, which is odd since they are the Color Clocks. So the backgrounds in there got very old.
This is definitely going to be one of my favorite submission, and this is one of the best Clock Crew films I've seen in a long, long, long time...though not as good as The Void II (but many fall flat compared to that film). Keep up the good work and soon your movies 'will make House Party, look like House Party 2'....(Just a quote from Jay and Silent Bob).
TheBluntSDK gives Charlie's Clocks a well deserved 9 out of 10
Thanks, TheBluntSDK! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Yeah the place was dark and grey inside because a) it was supposed to be kind of ironic, b) the color clocks looked good against a grey background, and c) It was a reference to greyclock, the other color clock. Well, I just made up that last one, but I like greyclock. Of coarse it's not as good as VOID II. VOID II was 1337. By the way, your "Yin-Yang Clock" can be seen somewhere in the movie. And you are thanked in the credits (I dont know if you remember, but you helped in my post about plot ideas for this movie on the CC BBS.) Anyway, thanx for the lengthy review!
I don't see how this got such a high ranking. Firstly, the graphics are horrible. The sprites look nice, but when on such a blank bankground....it looked like it was designed by a grade-schooler.
The sound was average. It was really good, but for a lot of the movie it's just blank, with no sounds to be found. I loved the sound effects when I heard them, but for the majority of this movie you don't hear them.
The idea was good, and I like it, but it had a poor execution. There was a good plot to be found, but it was hard to tell what was going on because it jumped around so much. The narrative helped a little....but only a little.
If you could improve upon these downfalls in your next movie it would be all the better, but as this stands right now, I can't see this movie being better than average.

Every now and then I get a good review that's not moronic and actually has points to it and this happens to be one. Point well made I'll be sure to keep all that in mind. Thank you for the intellegent review :)
the little one
This is a nice idea, but the execution ends up being way too short.
I liked the animation. It was fluid for the most part, but did have some times where it was a little bit choppy. The graphics were good for a stick figure film, but when compared to other animations I've seen, it doesn't really hold up.
The sound was the best thing you had going in this animation, and fit everything just right.
What I didn't like was when he lands on the desk, and you have to wait for the whole scene to shift over. With that being said, I think this is a worthy stick figure film, but again, when compared to most of the other high-calibur animations on Newgrounds, it just doesn't stack up.
TheBluntSDK gives the decent "stick" animation "the little one" a 5 out of 10
Mr. T vs Benny
Not bad, in fact I like it. The graphics were nicely done, but the animation was a little choppy at times though. The sound was nice, I liked the way Benny sounded. The little green guy at the end, however, I couldn't hear what he said because his voice was so high and he spoke too fast.
Also I had a problem with Mr. T speaking too much. That and all of his captures sounded different, which was a minor flaw, but was distracting. Next time you use Mr. T maybe you could imitate his voice yourself or get someone else to help, and it would come off as more natural and would fit with Benny and the others' voices.
The only really funny part I found in here was something that Mr. T said about a fish. The rest of it wasn't too funny, and it didn't really have much of a story or plot to it.
Either way, this animation is just above average, but doesn't do much to step above that.
TheBluntSDK gives Mr.T vs Benny a decent 6 out of 10
Black & White Cards
...Unbelievable. It's amazing how many low-quality animations are being put on Newgrounds now a days.
There is no real animation in this. Frozen pictures with moving text. And I've never seen these on the adult swim before, and if I have, you've taken what I've seen and turned it into this garbage. The sound is ultimately annoying. And this animation isn't really funny at all.
I honestly can not find a redeeming quality in the giant heap of textual trash. Next time when you submit an animation into Newgrounds, make it an actual animation.

Newgrounds Cameo Episode
The graphics were great and were right up there with Jim The Cat and Mary's Lamb. The style was great as well as the animation, because when you used tweening it looked really nice and natural, which is often hard to do through tweening. The sound was another great part of this cartoon. The voices all sounded different, with the exception of the Knuckles character and the other one that looked like him who was with Wade, and all fit the characters very nicely.
However, the plot had me very confused. I had no idea what was going on...but then again you said that it would make sense when you see both episodes.
Overall great graphics and sound, but the plot left me confused. The second one might clear it up and make it sensible, but as this animation stands right now, it's not very logical.
TheBluntSDK gives Newgrounds Cameo Episode a 7 out of 10.
thanks for the decent score and the honest review. You should work for Tech TV's Extended play or, at least the animation show called Eyedrops.
Mighty Clock 3
I really love your work Sherbalex, and I'm not trying to be a kiss-ass. I think your very talented and it shows. I love how most of this is frame by frame drawings instead of just a bunch of tweening, because tweening is so much easier but often times comes off as stiff and unnatural.
It's a shame that your not doing more Clock animations, but hey, like the animation said "all good things must come to an end".
The animation and graphics were just terrific. I couldn't ask for anything else. The sound was fitting whenever it came up, but unfortunately there were places which could have used some sound.
Very, very nice work again Sherbalex. Just keep it up and you'll do great with any future animations.
Oh and Xkick, the Lock people are just a group that are ripping off the Clock Crew. They're supposedly called the Lock Legion, but they still sound pretty unoriginal in my opinion.
TheBluntSDK gives Might Clock 3 a well earned 9 out of 10.
a day at the beach
As Squall said "that would suck," however it would not suck quite as much as this cartoon did. First off, the credits are way too long...I think they are actually longer than the cartoon itself, which is like 15 seconds at the most.
Though I liked the fitting sounds of the beach, this cartoon is way too short and ultimately serves no purpose nor point, and it's cartoons like these that don't deserve to be on a site as great as this one.
Work harder next time, get an actual plot into the cartoon, and try to put more cartoon in there, and you'll have a decent animation.
