The writing was for the most part excellent, very funny at times and some great subtle jokes (like Derpy's nature being up for debate another time).
However the direction (both in performance and camera) did get a little tedious; would have been a 4 1/2 out of 5 in my books if only it was a little bit more mixed up- having them walking and talking to make the scenery pass and be more interesting, or attempting a shot from any angle besides side-on would both have been great ways to make the scenes more visually interesting at no cost to the character's performances.
Fantastic job emulating the FiM animation style, especially facially! But as I said the static poses became a little tedious (There is a LOT more movement in the series). The voices were good, Derpy's being an absolute triumph, however The Doctor's voice felt far too put-on.
Not only did the pronunciation sound too carefully considered, but those simply-not-true British sounding phrases came straight from a stereotypical comedic Dickensian character, and not the naturally charming British vocabulary that many of The Doctors have possessed. With a natural sounding Doctor voice that aforementioned 4 1/2 star consideration would be a 5 all the way!
Looking forward to seeing yet more from you, and please consider varying the pace and camera direction in the future, I believe that would stop all these pony haters neigh-saying and calling it 'easy', 'simple' or 'lazy', because to say that about such a great attempt at the TV-quality style is just wrong!
Luke should be ashamed
Entertaining, but more educational.
Last time I saw Luke, he kicked my shins. Before that, the last time I saw him I was telling him that I was going in for a shin operation. What a bag of dicks.
Luke is a total ball-tongue
An excellent sprite movie
Well, there's not much more to say than 'excellent'
The writing was fantastic, better than most things that Sonic team have ever come up with.
The animation of the sprites was definitely the smoothest sprite animation I have seen in a while.
The music felt very fitting (except the end credits song, but that's personal preference).
You really have me anticipating the next episode very much! Keep it up!
Your video has been blamed
Plenty of spelling errors, and there was an obvious lack of attention to detail. Why was every piece of text selectable? I obviously know why, I'm just saying that that doesn't make for a professional looking film. I like the song so that's bumped up your review score, but I'm afraid I don't see this film going very far, sorry about the last film of yours that was blammed by the way, c'est la vie!
ty i didnt realize that the text was selectable can you tell me how to fix that?
Your shoes are the wrong colour
That was, as usual, the funniest sonic based film i've seen for a long time, you are constantly successful and manage to fit in the funniest cultural references. Only you could mix the mighty poo with you can fly :p
And this week has proven to be a great one, Sonic is in Brawl, I get a job at GAME, and you released another hilarious film. Cudos!
funny conclusion, good choice stopping there- love short movies!
THAT MUSIC! I USED THAT IN MY SCREENSAVER! I IMMEDIATELY recognised it! the repetitiveness- I love it and probably boosted your scores due to the amazing music! Where did u find it cos i forgot where i originally got it :P
could use a replay button! But that's not too important
The style is very original and I like the poem. It'd be really effective getting a more emotive person reading it (and I'm not talking Vincent Price standard, although that'd be awesome).
The characters are very nicely presented, but the backgrounds don't suit the characters. Especially at the begining, you need to detail them beter, use thin lines, not great big thick scribbles, although some were alright.
I'd like to see more. :)
Alright, thanks for your review, I'll keep your advice in mind for the next time ^_^
And I'll add putting in a replay button onto my to do list ^^;;;
such a simple little thing, the amazing thing is how it draws you into what the heck is going on, so, there's a zombie - but wait, there's lots of zombies! That crashed satelite must have caused it - look, some humans hiding, and - oh my! Simon Pegg and the umbrella corperation. Absolutely hilarious at the end - The only downer is the sound.

Great as usual
This is hilerious. Keep the series strong! Nice hat.
That was funny, it wass well composed, as the animation and lip sync was nicely done and the voices were pretty funny too. The unexpected result was what gave the movie the final edge. Well rounded (with good edges -if that made sense @.@)
*Note to other reviewers*
Those of you giving 0 or 2 out of 10 and saying it was short and crap, remember IT'S A SHORT. That means that you're NOT reviewing a feature length masterpiece, you're reviewing an animated SHORT, being short could probably lower the 'Style' to about 5 or 6, but it still is a great movie overall.
think about it.
