Can you explain to me every aspect of film making. Then give me examples of each in every single video you've ever made. Entertainment is nothing but subjectivity no matter what. If you "ignore" some aspects that doesn't stop it from being a video. Your posts are extremely dumb and uneducated. Stop talking like you are THE man who can define whether a video is good or not. You have had your arrogant pants on ever since Status Quo.

I can't believe what I'm seeing. You've gone off the deep end, bro.

Let me rate black box the same way you rated roadblock.

Creativity: 7 - Original soundtrack, and theme. Certain effects lacked originality however.
Content: 2 - It sucked, ass
Editing: 8 - Good clean finished product, well edited with a few flaws
Soundtrack: 5 - Wasn't a huge fan of the song, but thumbs up for trying something new.
Quality: 10 - just for kicks I give it a 10
That's an overall score of 32/50 which is a 6.2. (and thats assuming that those are the only components that make or break a vid, which you and I both know is untrue)

And yet you've told me, on multiple occasions, that black box is the best video in this movie competition. Surely you understand how biased you are looking at this from an editor's perspective. You say that editors deserve recognition for the amount of time they spend working on their videos. Likewise, I'd say that Roadblock deserves the same amount of recognition for the months he spent collecting that caliper of footage which, contrary to popular belief, isn't as easy as it sounds. People are entertained in different ways, its not you're place to tell them that your way is the right way. People having different opinions/perspectives is the reason we bothered to have a competition in the first place.

I understand that you're a great, well respected editor on this site but you cannot define what a good video is any better than the next guy. All this talk of it being a 'popularity contest' or of 'fanboyism' is absolute foolishness. People have different perspectives on what good movies are/aren't and vote accordingly. Here's a good example: M2 didn't get a good chunk of votes because people said the gameplay distracted from the editing and the OST was generic. You yourself said that you didn't think the gameplay was very good. I disagree completely and voted for M2, but not out or popularity or fanboyism. I think M2 was the best vid and understand others have different takes on it, and respect their opinions, why can't you? The same goes for roadblock, some people earnestly prefer videos with editing that doesn't 'distract' from the amazing gameplay, and in their minds Roadblock had the best vid.

This is just like when you were freaking out when people didn't like sq or clouds. Any sort of opinion that isn't perfectly in sync with yours almost seems to scare you.

And guys I know I've been back and forth on this one. Sorry :P. Please don't hate.

No offense frag, but Contractus was basically dualtality with good gameplay, interpolation, and grain. In my book that scores a perfect 10.

put the f**kin lotion in the basket

I really started to not like ptw after the Status Quo sh.t, but now i really dislike him. Jesus.

And Mike, your last post, perfect.

Also, according to ptw we should replace RB with Godson's tage.

Feeling really vindicated since I hated FRAY from "the beginning". Remember the good old days of arguing with Hans about it's merits. I think my best-expressed thoughts on the subject were directed to Fragtality as thus:
Quote:
Gr Hans you never cease to amaze me. Not that I agree with Eamonn like ever but don't lump some Immediate Music/action move score in with Mozart and Bach.
FRAY was tasteless and dry, lowest common denominator entertainment at it's very worst. To call it artistic and put it in the same category as MNC and Hush is to call The Expendables/Transformers artistic and put them in with Waking Life, Requiem for a Dream, or Babel (just some examples). Not to take anything away from Mattison's graphics talents but his ideas and inspiration are (thus far) not on par with his technical abilities. That's my opinion based on both Frenetic and on Fragtale.
As for the other 4 entries, I enjoyed them all. If I had to put them in order I would say:
1/2. Black Box/M2
3/4. Contractus/Roadblock

Can't decide...
Oh! Sweet Nuthin'
