  • Um...

    Where are the English subtitles? Is my internet browser broken? I cannot see a button to turn on the subtitles.

    I was about to share my opinion on the clip... but I find it wiser to just shut up ^^

    a friend of mine, will carry out the English subtitles.

    p.s: I apologize for my English. I know little.

  • Well Spadoni, you should be pretty idiot to post an italian video without english subtitles on an international Forum.

    However, this video sucks.

    Uhm.

    While it absolutely would be better to include English subtitles, calling him an idiot is a bit harsh. And "this video sucks" is a horrible piece of critcism. If you don't like the video, tell Spadoni why, so he can improve it.

  • Voodoomaster, you might want to be careful regarding your way with words. Criticism can be expressed in smart ways.

    Don't insult other members.

  • Well, let's do some better criticism:

    - It has no plot, it's just some nonsense mixed scenes, dubbed with ripped lines from the italian dubbing of Curse of Monkey Island and Escape from Monkey Island. If you understand the lines, you would understand that this is totally nonsense! Even for a simple tribute to the saga.
    - LeChuck is pretty ugly. He looks like a fat burning lizard dressed like Santa Clause.
    - Very bad montage. There are very few scenes boringly repeated, and often the position of the actor is wrong.
    - IMHO simply this actor is a very bad Guybrush. He took the role too seriously.
    - It takes worst element ever from the Monkey Island Saga (MI is a very big and epic saga. If you want to do a short movie you have a lot of choices. So please, don't take the most hated elements from the fandom ever, like the Monkey Robot and the Monkey Kombat. And, please, don't start with the "Escape is a great game" story. It's simply the worst Monkey Island chapter, the Robot is too cheesy, and the Kombat is a really boring part).
    - The Monkey Kombat can't hurt a Monkey. Should it make LeChuck exploding? Is this Monkey Island or Dragon Ball???
    - A...flying...Monkey...Robot???
    - Most suitable "Return ON Monkey Island"? Lol, worst excuse ever! It's simply a wrong title. The "return" verb needs the "to" preposition. If you don't know the english language, simply don't make english titles for your projects! I'm not an english master, too, but if someone says to me that I made a mistake, I simply answer "ok, sorry, I'll correct myself" :D

    And, at the end, this is an american/international forum. Posting this video here "hoping" that the people understand italian is pretty idio...uhm...funny :D .

    Seriously, don't worry for that "idiot". I won't start insulting people here, Spadoni here is some kind of old friend for me :D

  • Nice production with great special effects. I rather like Murray speaking Italian:D

  • I agree with Voodoomaster's points (that were very nicely written, thank you ^^)

    Italian is not a language I know, but my language does share the same latin-base structure.. I understood some parts of the dialogue and I thought it was a parody of some sort.

    If the intention is to make it a serious clip... then, no. Not by far.

    I do encourage you to play the other games as well (since I have a hunch you didn't really go through all of them) and try throwing ideas into the air and see what fans have to say about them, before writing a script.

    Make a poll or something. :) That usually works for me.

  • the MI4 is wonderful! I've played a lot.
    I do not care what they think the fans and even less against them.
    I accept any constructive criticism.
    take as an example qualuque thing that can improve my style, but that does not correspond to any critical growth for me as well not exist.
    they can write 4000 posts for me, but I have my own ideas, a passion that will never stop.
    I do not seek fame, but simply to show my style, worldwide for free to all.
    I hope I was clear. ;)

  • This is all useful criticism:

    - Don't make too serious clips if you don't have the budget or the time. Take it easier.

    - You are presenting the clip to a fandom that likes something more, and something less.
    So if you want to present something that the fans can appreciate, learn what the fan likes, and stop with this "wow wow no, for me the Monkey Robot is wonderful, I don't care about you".
    Obviously, you can make things without caring about what the fan wants, but if you want to work like that, make films just for yourself, not for the Internet. It's a simple matter of strategy.

    - Use a correct english if you want to present yourself properly. And, in general, use english language if you want to present your project in an international forum.

    - Improve your montage skills. Here there were lot of errors.

    If you don't understand this, and you continue to repeat "no, wow, I totally like what I do, and what you say can't help me improving myself", just face that you are too proud to admit your errors, and you don't like criticism. And if so it is, make your movies just for yourself and forget the internet.
