Holy shit. Best montage ever... Songs were great, gameplay was unbelievable and that fucking no scope 2 for 1 for the killtac at 10:10. Poop is just falling out of my butt, that's how good this was.

The spree on Avalanche might actually be the most impressive clip in the entire montage.

So congrats Dennis, I'm happy to see you go out with a bang.

Now, the criticism, and it falls squarely on the shoulders of Puba I'm afraid (unless of course Dennis was closely involved with producing the montage). I don't think there's a nice way of going about saying this but the editing was absolutely, undoubtedly horrendous and detracted from the gameplay. The persistent motion blur and twitching almost gave me a headache, and the way the clips were cut killed any chance this video had at a decent flow, which was probably slim to begin with considering there were what seemed to be a dozen songs used. To give more specifics, the overall exposure was too dark (watched on youtube so maybe the download is better in terms of contrast), and the quality seemed heavily degraded, like it had been been rendered multiple times.

This gives me an opportunity to explain to editors something that many fail to grasp, which is, sometimes less is more. Maybe as a web developer I recognize this more than most because in the world of the internet, minimalism and simplicity are the keys to good user experience. But this carries through to film, and almost any creative medium. Seriously, don't just add effect upon effect thinking that you're somehow adding to the depth of your creation. It doesn't work that way.

Ultimately, this was a montage that could have shattered any previous barriers based on gameplay alone. Seriously, even if it had been edited in the fashion of Roadblock, it would have probably accomplished that. Sadly, instead, the editing only detracted from the overall quality of the video.

Obviously this is only my opinion, and I'm sure there are plenty of people who would disagree and say they like the editing. To each their own.

Everything about this montage was great, and the feeling of it being the last Dutchy video this community will ever see made it even better. The only problem I had though was how completely terrible some of the kids were in some of the clips. It made some of the high multi clips that should've had a "OMFG" reaction have a "meh" reaction. It was kind of bad throughout this montage, but the editing, and my lack of not caring so much about it made this worth the 13 min watch of a terrific montage.

Love love love Puba's editing, and Dennis' gameplay is always above standard.

Great way to end the year with one of the best H2 montage ever (Kiko) and one of the best H3 montage ever.

It's been fun always trying to compete with you, I hope what ever you do in life is enjoyable for you and may you be as successful as you were getting clips in Halo, lol. Peace out Dennis, see ya around.

EDIT: Upload a new download link faget.

Edit: i probably shouldnt be focusing on the negative right now. i appreciate all the kind words from everybody else.

would hugggg
