OMG, that guy’s face at 2:14 XD
DO EET! XD
Congrats to Suomi!
“DO EET!” is my new favorite phrase of the day. It would make a great T-Shirt.
and again Spoony’s gut feeling does not fail!! Loved EET!
The Scandinavians are really kicking ass in this thing.
Finland isn’t part of Scandinavia.
But the Nordic are doing pretty okay, yeah.
Yes, Finland IS part of Scandinavia. I should know, I live here :D http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scandinavia
Or at least that’s what we’ve always been teached at school. According to that article Finland is only _sometimes_ considerd a scandinavian country in some instances. I dunno. I’ll get me coat ->
Your teachers have been misinforming you. Scandinavia consists of Denmark, Sweden and Norway, and always have. Finland IS a part of Finno-Scandinavia, but when you need to awkwardly insert your county’s name at the beginning of the collective term to make the cut, you should realize something’s up.
You could just become Swedish property again. That’d make you Scandinavians. Though, as a Norwegian, I’d say; ask the Danish instead. They’re nicer.
Finland? more like Winland! amirite?
Ha! I thought that was a giant Jawa at first!
Good choice spoony, sort of. I thought it was funny.
*But* the production values for this one are MUCH lower than the previous one. I can see why you expect to get flamed for this. So yeah… I kind of slightly disagree with your choice.
I’m eager to see the victor in this battle of grass.
Heyyyy! That guy’s dagger is a rifle bayonet!! Anachronism! ANACHRONISM!!
…Nah, just being silly.
I must say, I’m with you :) That was awesome, the music was great and the acting was so earnest.
I liked the last one too, but so far this is my fav.
It was a lot better than the first choice.
Wow. I feel like we won the silver medal in the world championship of… something :)
What can i say…it was KICK-GRASS!!!
I liked this one the most. Plus the out takes were funny as well.
Best of the three.
It was pretty funny, but probably the weakest of the three. Still, DO EET! was a classic laugh out loud moment. XD
Haha, I didn’t know the Fins were Advent Rising fans.
glad to see other spoony fans in finland other than me XD
These guys are un-fucking-believable!
Um…Seventhed. No wait, Ninthed.
Really like dthe fact that the Rogue were using “wellies”(google translated) as leather boots.
I’m finnish. lol.
I’m finnishing these comments!
Those were actually West German jackboots but they look like rubber boots because I forgot to polish them properly.
Loved the facial expressions. Someone really ought to do a buddy fantasy film. The Simon Pegg/Edgar Wright/Nick Frost team would be perfect.
I really like this one. The fight scene was well done, and I especially like the fact they added closed captions for the dialogue. My girlfriend is deaf, so I was finally able to show her a video from this site that she could understand (take note, Spoony: Give us CC!).
I agree, it’d be nice to have CC that you could turn off and on as needed, but I don’t believe Blip has that functionality, so it’d have to be hard-coded CC, and that would just make Spoony’s job a hell of a lot tougher, since then he’d need to take in to account placement of the CC, and wouldn’t be able to place anything important in the video in that area. So unless Blip upgrades their player, I don’t see it happening.
A Rogue and a Cleric in an open field? Wow. Not the best strategy (or party choice for that matter). =)
I really liked the blooper reel for this one. It’s nice not to take yourself too seriously. That, and the Cleric gets points for doing the whole thing bare foot (the biting insects and bladed weeds alone must have been painful).
“Were magic fails, steel prevails”
This should so be a line in a metal song if it isn’t already.
That was probably my favourite line. I’m a bit surprised it got so little attention while DO EET seems to be the line most people liked.
Thats something I’d pay to see.
That was awesome.
The title should have been more fantasy-associated such as: Curse of the Grass King, Field of Verdant Death, or Pax Herbicide.
A spoiler warning would have been nice, Spoony.
DO EET! And complete with bloopers.
Best costumes in this one. A rogue and a cleric made this flick look very old and mysterious.
I see nothing but GRASS. – Exactly. LOL
Great to see our vid won this thing. To be quite honest we always did have high hopes for it but we didn’t expect what was more or less a two weekend project to actually turn out to be winner material. Or, well, at least I didn’t.
Congrats on the win! That is a great piece of cinema. :D
Indeed, good chap. To me it was just a fun project that turned out to be a lot of editing work and I’m very satisfied with it. Thanks to everyone for the compliments and especially Spoony for picking for winners us as well!
Awesome, a Finnish entry got in the top three! Plus it was funny as hell and the bloopers were great too. :P
This one was my favorite.
This one was my favorite, also YEAH FINLAND
I think there’s something wrong for me. I just don’t see the entry, only Spoony talking about it. Sadness I really wanted to see this one.
I would pay to see that as a full movie.
And did anyone else know Spoony had such overseas appeal?
And is there something in the water in Finland? Something that makes you badass?
We just might make something like a full-length sequel, if we find the time for it. And if we figure out how to do more than a 4 minute skit without a cameraman.
Get a cameraman, do a full lenght movie… and do floor too.
All in good time.
It’s the long winters, you know.
This was my favorite of the three.
It’s like a trailer for something the Cinema Snob would review. I can see why Spoony likes it.
I liked this one a lot. I think my favorite part was the fighter’s Christopher Lambert accent.
wow. really good video.
What I like about this one is that it’s actually fantasy themed to fit the whole Ultima thing. :D
I’m glad that someone finally noticed this :D
You make this into a movie, and I’ll watch it. Hell, if I had the money I’d FINANCE it!
Lo! Behold, the Grass! Of such unspeakable evil that even the powers of the holy man cannot reach it! Back, evil demons! I am the keeper of the secret fire, wielder of the flame of Anor, dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udun! Back! Back to the shadow!!
… I think I just got my wires crossed with lotr.
… *shifty eyes* I really need some sleep.
Täällä on yks ylpeä suomalainen! :D (One proud Finn)
That was awesome! :)
I too laughed my ass off at this one. A deserving winner.
Swish! Hack! Thrust! FAITH!
dun dun DUNNNNN
Why controversial? This was AWESOME :D I want to see more of those guys XD
“Where magic fails, steel prevails!”
Swordsman reminds me of Solomon Kane, ha!
HAHAHAHAHA, omg, this entry made me laugh so hard! I loved it.Hope they do a sequel! Congrats on the win!
Hyvä Suomi! :D
Congratulations on winning guys. :D
Uh…I don’t see any clips or anything, Spoony’s video ends at 2:43 :/
there is a youtube video under the blip video. So maybe you are just not seeing it. Search for Spoony’s Ultima III Contest: The Green Horror on youtube.
Ah, once again I feel proud to be a Finn.
Haha. That was pretty great. Good pick I think
That was fun! I wish more wordplay was done with the subtitles though! Otherwise, very good.
It was OK, but I wasn’t excited. So yeah, I understand why you consider this a controversial pick especially when comparing this to the genius of the first winner.
These guys are hilarious!
I think the only reason this is #2 instead of #1 is because #1 managed to work in The Floor as well. And this one gave all the icing on the cake as well with the bloopers at the end!
Is it me, or is the warrior doing an impression of Christopher Lambert.
