Did he always have that weird lump on his face? What is it meant to be?
What was that joke that Starbarians did?"Ewww motion tweening, I feel practical and cost-effective"
>>105855243An upper lip? It looks odd
>>105855059This looks worse and has less of a reason to be made than the live action Aladdin.
oh goodie a film that fuels undergrads self importance with awkward jokes and references and more referencesThat's what we need more of
>>105855059>That little snippit of The Click at the endI can't wait, I got a lil nostalgic
You think if it does well Netflix will pick it up for a season 2.
I wished it was Megas XLR...
>>105855059>I will admit, this animation looks better than your typical toonboom trash.Not really, no.
>>105855059Anyone else really not like this show?I was out by the second episode Much prefer DownTown
>>105855059>17 yearsjesus my life is a fucking blur of nothing and old wow.
>>105855059I get what they’re doing here, but this makes me think this movie will end up not greatRather than actually animate something interesting, he’s just swaying back and forth raising and posing one arm at a timeCouldn’t they draw literally any other motions, couldn’t they animate him picking up some of the items?
>>105855059Did Nitz get replaced by a bobble head?
>>105856147>>105856212Looks like something they slapped together relatively quickly just so the backers don't start rioting. That said, I'm trying to keep my expectations low for the same reasons as >>105855254.
It really doesn't look as bad as you guys are saying, but it isn't that great either. For something done on a very low budget in quick time, it looks passable. I'm honestly impressed that they bothered doing some hand drawn elements instead of straight-up just tweening the whole thing. Still, the awkward swaying is weird and leaves a bit to be desired. They really don't have to do that.>>105855254Starbarians was also underwhelming and lacking substance last time I checked. But at least it looked good.
>>105855059This show was such a product of its time i am baffled they think there's an audience for this, its going come off dated as fuck.
>>105857321You underestimate the power and blindness of 90s kid culture, it's the main reason why all of the internet is unusable
>>105857321Yeah it was a fun by-the-numbers college comedy for the time but very dated and irrelevant now. This is like somebody thinking we need a revival of Road Trip or some other early 2000s college fluff. Can't really see why it needs a movie or a revival.This animation looks awkward, it's smooth but lacks life. He feels like an animatronic the way each part of him seems to move at separate times without affecting the other parts.
>>105855059holy shit it's really happening?>>105855243I took that for the little lump made by the corner of your mouth when your face doesnt really have room for it.
>>105857421excuse me? our internet was great. it's this shitty new internet focused on the idiot young people of today that's the problemwith their fucking phones..>>105857321the today times are terrible, why not pretend it's 2000 again for a while? fucktons of good shows were around in 2000 and it's refreshing hearing them getting away with shit you couldn't just a few years laterwatch the Clerks animated series again.
>>105855243It's a growth. He's supposed to look average and dumpy.
>>105857321Shut up millenial. Not even your own generation likes you idiots.
>>105855059Why is a one-season cartoon from the early ‘00s getting a movie right now?
>>105858743Cult following that is willing to overload a kickstarer for proper closure plus bored creators who's syndication royalties have run out exploiting said cult.Seriously we need a less down ending.
>>105855059Looks like a cel-shaded 3D model that was painted over. Really strange, stilted hands.
>>105858788>crowd funding Mission Hilloh god.. we could do it.
>>105858804Only if CAKE does the whole soundtrack.
>>105858804Anybody remember the episode that came out right after 9/11 where everyone was gawking at the TV news in shock at some crazy, unspoken crisis? The timing of that shit always struck me as creepy. FUCK that retarded Simpson's predicts bullshit,that shit was illuminatards at work.I think Gwnyth Paltrpw saves the day by telling the world to get over it in her Oscar speech
>>105858788>Got to fuck the dream girl>Found out the hot punk girl had the hots for you>Had a great year at schoolI don't know how much better you want the ending to be.
>>105858865He didn't fuck her and hot punk chick told him to go to hell because he pursued mentally handicapped ginger and that bridge get burned, he was a loser all year and all his friends fuck off to thier own thing the next year. Your life sucks if that's not a down note.
>>105858865>Dream girl awkwardly kisses you and you wake up with both your clothes on>Punk girl hates you for ditching her>Realizes how much you wasted your year at schoolYay for closure.
>>105856162Downtown, Undergrads, Mission Hill and Clone High were all kino
It’s been ages since I saw this but did the punk girl actually like him as more than a friend?
>>105858960Now John Callahan's Quads, there was a show that sucked, didn't age well, and was honestly hard to watch most of the time
>>105858961Yes and it was blatantly obvious, he just never noticed because he wanted the ginger thot
>>105858907>Kiss while dropping down out of frameThat's network censor language for they fucked.Punk girl may or may not get over it but the last thing she said, "Have you learned anything this year about anything" hit. He finally got over the all consuming crush and moved on. Ready to move forward with his life.Basically what Freshmen year is for.
>>105858965Quads was literally Pelswick for adults.
>>105858982Dude your in fucking denial as fuck watch the last episode again and look at nitz sitting on thebroof all depressed.
>>105859078You can sit, and reflect, on a roof without being depressed. The music even picks up as soon as he climbs up there.
>>105859127You can accept you fucked up and were a massive tool all year and walk off in denial with a crappy song in your head, too.
>>105856162It wasn't great, but it was mostly funny and had the promise of turning into a great show, which is why I was sad it ended early. I've always hated Gimpy because I've always thought his dumb nerd adventures clashed with the whole "down to earth college life" thing.
>>105858713Nah it moves with his mouth, it's some weird attempt to draw a lip or a cheek but it just looks bad. Remove it.
>>105860378>>105858713>>105855243Its always been there
>>105860420And it's always looked bad.
>>105860424its always looked fine, its just the side of his mouth, shitting on unique styles is how we end up in the calarts era where everything looks like whatever was the most popular on tumblr the year before
>>105860440Saying a shitty design decision looks bad is not how we end up anywhere except someone being informed that something they're doing looks bad.
>>105860445But it doesn't look bad, its just that you don't like it.If artists had to change their designs to suit what the majority finds the least offensive we'd end up with a bunch of cartoons that all look basically the same with almost nothing unique about them.I'd rather take cartoons like Undergrads and Downtown warts and all rather than have some focus grouped soulless garbage that offends no one and appeals to no one
>>105860459What a huge, paranoid leap, and yet it still looks bad.
>>105860472I think it looks fine, to me it clearly communicates that its supposed to be his lip and it always has.
>>105858850HAHAHAHAHAgood lord that opened a can of worms.memory worms.man i'd love for them to at leastfund the rest of the season at least.
>>105855998what would it even be about? season 1 already covered a lot of base college shit
>>105857321how much of it is dated though?
Can't trash it knowing the creator has spent over a decade trying to get the show back on the air. Guy is really committed.
>>105862924if only the clone high guys cared enough to tell all of India to lighten the fuck up so they can make a season 2
>>105863012same problem as undegrads though, season 1 already touched on a lot of typical high school shit not leaving much else to cover
>>105863012Wasn't there a contingency plan for Gary Coleman?
>>105855059Oh my god is that Vinny Vinesauce?
>>105858804That would be amazing but it's never going to happen.They tried to crowdfund it already and failed and none of the networks, or streaming services wants to pick up the show either.The fact that the official Mission Hill twitter reccomends either watching it on YT or downloading a torrent with the correct audio really says it all.
>>105863012They've been talking about making a move that ties up the story for ages already but I think the last time they ever mentioned it was before the Lego movie came out and some reporter asked them about it.
>>105855059I don't careWhat they sayI don't need them anywayI'll just go about my dayBut anyway
>>105863730I wouldn't mind just seeing more radio-play animatics.
>>105856354I hope they smooth out the animation for the real product, I'm not expecting anything great but I'm not expecting their best for an update either.
>People thinking the animation in a quick update video that was probably thrown together in an hour or two is representative of the final product.cmon guys.
>>105865438yeah and it reuses the same 5 hand gestures the whole update.
>>105863730i don't think anyone would sign up unless they could get like 2 or 3 more seasons out of it
