A game-changer in high-quality Flash animation
There's only so much you can do in Flash alone. Not to say that people can't push the envelope a little bit at a time, but even then it's still Flash. There have been some fantastic looking Flash movies and games, but there are always hints of a limit or a restriction. But if people always abided by those limitations... oh, what a boring Newgrounds this would be.
In his animation "T2judgement Day!(serious)" DangerousBob combines rotoscoping, CGI, and Flash, and it looks.... pretty damn spectacular. You will be amazed, and rightly so. Almost everything looks fantastic -- the scenery, the weapons, the people, the EXPLOSIONS. How everything is shot and viewed, how everything is in sync with everything else in spite of the different programs, how stylish it is... it's utterly cool.
Yeah I'm done kissing ass.
Of course, there's not much else to comment on. It's a redux, a tribute, to the Terminator film series, and most of it is a visual treat. There's no real plot, just a scene tied together by its concept. You fans who like to have characters you can care about, or stories you can get into... tough luck.
And aside from that, now matter how nice it is to watch this movie on Newgrounds, it's only a fraction of the full quality version. It has a certain compressed look to it, which granted you may not notice the first time around.
You *must* watch this when you get the chance, you must. It's truly wonderful to look at -- it sets the bar for high quality animation online. Of course, given the chance, you NEED to view it at its highest quality. Trust me, for something of this scale and scope to be made with Flash? It's breathtaking. But don't take my word for it; you be the judge. Go ahead and watch it. Hasta la vista, baby.
