erm, interesting. The smoke could have been added in better. I didn't like that the comet had a yello thing behind it in the final explosion. All the comets came down differently, when they should have come down the same. And how does a comet bounce off a street if it is going 1341904243 miles an hour???!?

I should have given it a 1, but i'll give you a 2 for effort biggrin

(It WAS better than your last movie though: ALAMDV BOOOOM)

Its a special bouncy comet. I was just playing with it a bit. That is also why the 2 comets have different trails - trying stuff out.

Which one do you like the most?

I didn't like either trail. Maybe if you made the first one (smoke) longer, slower, and closer to the comet it would be good.

Did i mention the title sucks, too?

Right, I'll try that.

I'm most upset that you don't like the title. It took me all of 1.45seconds to think of - I feel like I've wasted an important part of my life. Oh well cry

Only joking lol

I think the overall quality of the movie is pretty good, and the masking when the comet goes behind the house is kewl. It just seems a bit odd that nothng the comet hits seems to react to the impact. This is hard to do though, as I know from experience...

I had a meteorite bounce off my head once, twas only a little one. Either that or the bigger boys were throwing stones at me again.

Anyway, I liked schwars movie (even with the lack of it featuring himself diving out the way in terror). But then again I got hit by a meteorite once, so that may affect my judgement, it was only a little one tho...hmm...did i say that already? tard
