I'm sure you all know what Madness REALM is, if not, then god has probably answered your prayers.

I've never really discussed about REALM only to a extend when i just claim i don't like it, but honestly, it's not that bad either, i've always told to any animators that being inspired by this series is not a bad thing, but it's neither a good one.

so i'm going to be a trashbag about realm on this post because of only one image, yes, i just feels like i have to, for most people that is into the madness community (of animators, not just being a fan) probably know the various opinions going on about realm or kelzad himself (though it doesn't matter at all right now) the first episode was basically his first movie, so there is nothing to blame aside the fact we have a Baby auditor being born out of a accident, and progressively evolve into a even less original monster which appeared in a official incident.

(basically he don't even own 1% of the non-physical form, even his powers are basically auditor's) Why am i bringing this up? for a simple reason that always bothered me, at first, i thought it would be a simple matter of time, but it's not, Kelzad has never once had the intention to have his own shit, even to this day, he is surely drawing flying rocks linked with big ass chains including halloween decorations that was Krinkels's home decoration last year.

i have no idea how you can still enjoy copying content to a extend this extreme, for me, this picture is literally a Krinkels's scene to me, you can't think anything on your own because you just think you don't need to, and that's fucking sad. Obviously the reason might be something like "oh i don't really need to do so, i have a huge youtuber fanbase into madness and they like whatever i make" Which is a valid argument, there isn't much purpose to make this post aside letting you know you fucking sucks, you're literally part of the YouTubers species which corrupts kids, the only difference is that you still put more work than many others because in madness you can't really be messing around, well, you kinda did it for stuff like boss battle, it was awful and you probably knew it yourself, but didn't bothered to redo or even practice a minimum (that would be actually worse if you redid it and still being bad) i don't get it, why would you still copy shit ?

do you have a personality ?

are you krinkels's son ?

is it something like Fortnite trend, so you have to make fortnite videos to get popular and you do the same way with SACRIFICE.fla and all the others .fla and you absolutely need to do the same ?

Some people may not give much thoughts about it, but bro, no one really wanted a reduced quality krinkels version. and don't even thinks stuff like "oye but Burtjack, Thece and Prov22 did it", the problem is, you can't compare to these animators, they are literally newborn faggots with a copyright infragment disease as temporarily cancer symptoms.

I Know you will change nothing what you've done in REALM5, but if possible, reduce any references regarding the entire .fla Series.


Kelzad responds:

no king?

Potential unfortunately killed by the runtime. Even I thought 20 minutes was pushing it for Paradigmadness 2.

But 40? Really not trying to shit on the project but 40 minutes doesn't suit the story on display. Hell, the first 8 minutes didn't even need to be in the movie, there's a ton of fat that could be trimmed off this project and not much would change.

Speaking of, the story was a clusterfuck. Lots of things were introduced and then not furthered on in later parts. There's a rule in film where if you show something important in the first act, it should show up again in the third act. Unfortunately, the case here is that things were introduced in collab parts exclusively and then forgotten.

Now it's okay to have things vague or misty, like in the case of Dark Souls. But what goes wrong here is that nothing ever has a hint of clarity to it. No pieces to start the puzzle, and that's what really kills this movie.

The pacing also really weighs it down, you go from high action violence to slow pans. Which can work if it's paced properly, which here it's not. Sometimes it just happens in the middle of a tense action scene which totally kills the pace.

This goes back to what I said about the runtime. Combine 40 minutes of nonsense with no hint of an actual cohesive story and pacing that stops and goes at random you end up with an unenjoyable experience.


That said, the positives this time around are really strong.

The art direction in most scenes, background art, assets, animation quality. It's all superb stuff this time around. 10/10 if not a 9/10 at times.
The only problem I have here is that there's no names or watermarks outside of a few, so it's hard to know who's doing what scene. This makes it hard to figure out who to recruit for potential collaborations in the future.

While all this is strong it can't carry the cons of this movie on its back, the pacing and runtime are too harsh on the final product to save it.

If I had to give suggestions to rectify this in the future they would go as follows:

-Plan out your timeline beforehand, then string along the plot after the fact.

-Restrict everyone's collab part runtimes, allow them to make multiple short parts or one long part. This will help to keep the runtime from dragging, especially if you have a lot of members.

-Plan out where you will and won't have downtime, this will allow the audience to relax from the insane action without it coming out of nowhere and killing the pace of the movie.

1 star each for art, audio, and animation.
1 star taken off for pacing and story.

Thanks for a constructive review!

Thankfully I don't plan on hosting such a big collab ever again but I'll take the advices for my smaller projects.
Some things such as audio glitches and latencies have been fixed.

The Tube.

Please make more.

holy sheet Cethic
and by the way i'm still working in the full anim, probably i'm gonna make this as a series if this continues on.

Was a pleasure to work together. Still wish I'd have done more.

Regardless the final product was worth the wait, all the small details you packed into this one and the character dynamics really help this one stand out from other entries in the series.

Unfortunately painfully average. From the music choices to the majority of collab clips. There were a few I could count on one hand that kept my interest but over all it was very "meh."

But, I can still appreciate it for what it is and not what it isn't. It's not trying to be a deep revolutionary story driven collab, just something fun a few people slapped together to have a good time, and I can respect that.

There was King, 10/10.

Don't steal from Djjaner!

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

Kenamy responds:

My mom said "stop animating dicks that fights their own kind", as far as i know, she prefer to see them cumming than dying, seeing a dick that is ripped off the body is quite the sight, i wonder if you'll be alright after this, probably not, but i should attempt it someday, i tried searching it on google and surprisingly i had no result, despite how this search engine's popularity, i can't stop thinking about it since then because in my 6 years of experience thought animating these dicks, do dicks can have dicks ? this is quite the troublesome question.

Big lack of motivation in this project.

Kelzad responds:

Goddamnit, Chris.

Varied skill set, work close with Krinkels on his stuff.
