Tbh, Dutchy M2 was the most generic there. Rewind 3 got my vote, but wasn't worth it apparently.
Got my vote too.

Wasn't really near the civilization during the voting... congrats to Mattisson!

Only thing I don't like with that intro is the repeating-reversed-shatter-texts. The "Frenetic Array" text doesn't really get the same effect when the previous texts have had the same effect.

Are the judges ever going to make their opinions on each entry for each category public? Think it could help out, considering Black Box couldn't even break fkn 10 votes out of ~250.

I was talking specificially about the intro, and yes, IMO it's very generic, aside from the awesome 'broken maps' sequence. The scene on narrows with a moody skyline and snow/blizzard has been done an amazing amount of times before, and the most generic thing that stuck in my mind was the 'starring' sequence with 3D text for their names, followed by a HUD-less snipe from each of them, coupled with a 3rd person view of their spartan, and overlayed with videos of them playing IRL. All of which has been done to death in so many team tages.

EDIT:

Also, zooming through the clouds and into Narrows is almost identical to the Str8 Rippin intro, apart from it zooms in from above rather than the side.

Point is, FA got it because everyone jizzed themselves blind at the beginning of the intro, which made the rest of it irrelevant. I'm with ya, stick.

However people view it, the intro was an amazing piece of work. The body of the film was even more impressive. Maybe not the most creative thing editing wise, but the whole feeling the film brought is almost unrivaled in this competition. So from my view it didn't make anything irrelevant, it infact put the two on different levels.

Congrats to Mattison. It's a shame Black Box got so few votes.
