so many people are upset dutchy is winning, yet he's still up by 9. lol. best Gp? sure. best cinematography? i would give him 3rd or 4th place honestly. Doesnt anyone else love LOS' camera work? I think LOS or contractus is an easy second behind lbyl, so i guess I'm only upset because we arent even losing to one of them, but we're losing to my 4th choice...
Looking for anyone to play some H2 on XBC with.

Hmmmmmmmmm - Sor3 gets mah vote
Why? Even if it is just his fan base winning it for him, he's still winning. I'm not letting that fact anger me at all. Why get mad when people don't even understand what they are voting for? The category names are a little bit meh. In "Most Original" all ppl did what argue about what "Originality" is. Same for this category. Halo vids are pretty much based off the kills in it imo. Originality, Cinematography are terms better associated w/ REAL movies. These tages do capture elements that are used in movies and it is a movie competition. But Halo vids and Movies are two COMPLETELY different things. Understand that.

I don't think you understand how similar they are. Think of the kills the same way that you think of a storyline in a film. Both need to be showcased. Getting either of them to spark interest in your viewer is directly correlated to the same sub-genres that you don't seem to care about.

When people are voting for the wrong reasons, it makes sense that other people will get bent. It's kind of like voting for Obama, simply so he could be the first black president, with complete disregard to what his politics were (Let's not actually bring his up politics. I'm just using this as an example.).

If you don't understand the genres, or the point of them, then don't vote. This isn't the contest for the best overall video, or best gameplay, it's for the best filming. While the terms are more common with large scale films (simply because there is a wider fan-base), they still work with halo cinema.

What's more, to anyone that thinks the arguing in here is retarded:
It simply isn't. Arguing/debate is the fastest way to spread knowledge and share perspective. In a competition dedicated entirely to perspective, it's actually a quite healthy thing to see. Trying to say it's immature to argue and defend your position is immature in itself.

OT: Just re-watched LoS, and holy damn, that video deserves more votes in this category.

I'm getting tired of this "Dutchy-only-in-the-lead-bcuz-of-fanbase" stuff. If you guys don't bring us a solid FBI report on it you're just spreading rumours and mainly making the video look bad. Very disrespectful.

N1vincble & Synergy did great work and everyone has right to their own opinion.

Ok hold up.
Please, and i am begging you please for the sake of us all. Do NOT get another debate and dumb ass argument going about something totally different. The debating is perfectly fine. But arguing over these videos arent making the polls any different and some of the arguments are here are completely pointless man.
But dont start by comparing this competition and bandwagon to the Presidential debate. Because i KNOW that argument will get out of hand fast and it will because you had to start about it.

So for the sake of all of us. Dont compare this comp. to the election, because i know it would get out of hand. I would just keep it to the argument of the videos.
THROWBACK REVIEW EPISODE!!

This so perfectly coincides with my own thoughts. The first four paragraphs, and that last comment is also spot on. I think that LOS should easily be second or competing for first with LBYL.

And i dont think anyone is trying to condescend your video Exus...after all it's in the lead, and it got nominated for this category so it has been recognized for sure. Some people here, including myself, just happen to believe that M2 wasn't the best video in cinematography. I think it possibly had the best gameplay, and it possibly had the best editing, and i voted for it for best intro....cinematography though? not imo. Those guys did a great job, but do you personally also believe that M2 had the best cinematography? j/w
