So firstly, I'm going to drop Flash to make movies. I'm fully understood that it's not really vital to get content onto this website in just flash but sometimes I would like to know the secret to what made Flash ever popular and to get somewhere. We're in an age where we don't have to rely on ever waiting for a video to load. That's the entire reason Flash was ever used for in the first place. SWF files were small but the rendering was great but everyone has boardband. Not unless I want to get content to someone living in some rural area, who doesn't have boardband. I'm sure there's still that market out there who has to put up with using Flash and maybe make something for them. Who knows. At the time, you wouldn't think about internet speed but we did have CD-ROMs measuring at 650MB that distributed content and there were programs like GetRight which had algorithms (everyone's favorite word) which told the user who long it would ever take to download a file, so even back then, people knew. Another time, I'm saving this. I like what I've just typed.
So I want to end my Flash rant spree with a movie review of Drawn Together: The Movie. It was made soon after the series on Cartoon Network was cancelled from demand. This movie really made me stop thinking about flash movies actually. Drawn Together is a cartoon about a reality TV show of characters which pardoies other famous characters from video games and shows.
The show isn't just funny. There is that sad feeling that it really is the end of the characters as the characters struggle to get their show back onto the air. It protrays the harsh reality of being a character that no one wants to watch. There's even a beefed lengthy South Park parody in the movie which I couldn't believe was created. It was made so the characters would see what other show took their time slot, considering that I am a fan of South Park, it was entertaining to watch.
It did feel satifying that they ended the series with the movie, maybe because the cancellation came at a bit of a surprise. I found it very interesting that it was animated in Flash because it was almost like a message to a website like Newgrounds that it's how parodies end up. It is a bit worrying that it has heavy antisemintic remarks in the movie. I really wondered if that was really needed.
