Frankenstein's idea of bringing life to a dead body using lightning is deeply flawed. I've tried it with my fr-
Oh, animation as in cartoons? Let's see...
After 2 years of not watching The Simpsons
, I finally watched The Simpsons
. I thought it was good. Sure, it's not as fresh as it used to be, but they try, and more than occasionally they deliver great laughs. The plots get a little weaker, though, as each episode feels more like a series of connected events rather than a full story.
I've recently watched The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie
, and while I love how they kept the animation style good while using Flash, I really didn't think it was that funny. Frankly, I never like the show that much. Not because it was vulgar and violent, but because the vulgarity and violence had no contrast, since they use it every scene, which kinda weakens their effect.
And despite being criticized by Drawn Together for "Only being popular because it's preachy", South Park
's latest episode, Crippled Summer, had me in stitches, and it didn't have any message or moral whatsoever, and it barely offends anyone (well, disabled people and their relatives, maybe). It was just plain funny.
I've been watching Comedy Central's Ugly Americans
, and it's a pretty cool show. I like the animation and art style, and the writing is pretty funny, though some pop-culture references may feel forced. But, I still think the overall show is really fun, I mean, c'mon, it has Jack Mcbrayer as Kong with OCD.
I also like Archer
. I love how it's basically a live action show, but animated. All the characters' gestures, their facial expressions, are subtle and not too exaggerated like most cartoons, and the humor really just rely on their voice acting. And it's dirty and violent enough to be funny, but not too much to lose its class. I never saw Frisky Dingo or Sealab 2021 before, but after seeing this, I kinda wished I had. Also, it has Jessica Walter.
has the best flash animation I've ever seen on the internet, considering how often they make new episodes (well, until recently). In fact, the only time I've ever seen flash animation better than Homestarrunner.com without doing too much traditional animation is Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends
. The characters in HR.com don't look like a bunch of body parts tacked together and moved like puppets, but they really look natural when they move, as if it's one whole being. Also, while the jokes and the dialogs uses plenty of random and absurd humor, it has its own style of randomness and absurdity that it feels like it makes total sense when it happen.
But most importantly, I love Venture Bros
. Everything about the show is great; the characters, the writing, the art design, the animation, everything. I love its retro-science fiction style. I love the universe it takes place in, and I love its "GI Joe enlists Hunter S. Thompson and The Village People to fight an evil organization lead by David Bowie"
I'm also waiting for Futurama. I love the show, and I hope it can still maintain its quality in the revival.
Yeah, the cartoons I watch are usually adult American cartoons. I don't really watch Anime that much. Though My Neighbor Totoro
is still one of my favorite childhood movies of all time.
