"The Academy Award for Best Motion Picture is considered the most important of the Academy Awards, as it is the final award presented, and represents all the directing, acting, and writing efforts put forth for a film."

Convert this with aspects to the halo comp videos, and you have your answer.

Let me rate roadblock's vid TMV style for ya:
Creativity: 2 - cuz it used a rap song
Content: 9 - great footage
Editing: 5 - Not much to judge
Soundtrack: 5 - just cuz I like eminem, but this song doesn't belong in a tage, just listen to the lyrics...
Quality: 10 - just for kicks I give it a 10
That's an overall score of 31/50 which is a 6.2...


Editing is not capable of creating an awesome halo related video without any kind of halo related content. halo related content is already a form of media so it can provide entertainment right off the bat, but it is very limited unless editing comes into play. Editing comes in and distorts/shapes it into the image/vision of it's creator, so when you get a video that has a lot of thought and effort into it, you get a movie and not clips on a timeline. Do you understand? Of course you do, you already understood this a couple posts back but you wont drop the front. A great example of this is Single Gaming 3, a video that features an amazing array of frags, to a unique storyline that captures the viewer and makes them believe what they are watching is more than just clips on a timeline, but at the same time maintains/enhances the footage. GP gets old, editing is unique and can be expressed in an infinite amount of ways, this is why the combination of GP(or media) is accompanied by editing(creativity), to create something deeper and to give the media more meaning than it has...to be CLEAR editing is not more important than GP, but GP alone does not make for a better video than GP + editing.

I never said it was a bad video, you're turning what I'm saying into something subjective by misinterpreting what I'm saying. The fact of the matter is that RB's video lacks effort, and having it in the top 3 shows people in this community that you don't need to put effort into your work to feel appraised, which is a terrible thing to advocate, but you seem to be completely ok with it because you like to argue for the sake of arguing...which is really annoying. A video that lacks effort being given recognition and shown approval advocates lack of effort...it doesn't show us how powerful gameplay can be, we already know how powerful it can be, the damn game's been out for 3 years, we've all seen our fair share of vids like Roadblock's, and you'd be a fool to argue that Roadblock's GP with SG3's storyline and editing wouldn't make a better video than Roadblock's GP with no storyline or editing. Jeeeeeeeeez.

lol wtf


You really don't get it, do you...

A Halo montage can be amazing without noticeably good content (aka Black Box), it can also be amazing without any noticeably good editing (aka Apex, Roadblock, Rush). Learn to appreciate other styles of videos. You seem to think the world revolves around editing, and that's just not true. Sorry.

Last I checked, the Academy didn't award Best Picture based on open voting to the public.

This is H3F, this award is based on popularity in terms of entertainment, hence the open voting. The award we have closest to Best Picture is Judge's Choice, and even that's not really comparable since we only have 6 judges, whereas the academy has over 100 people.

The community is not ready yet.

I hate being called out on humility, cuz you can't be like "No! I'm still humble!" So I dunno what to say about that except I am just confident in myself, but to call me cocky or arrogant is just wrong. I do so much for people over AIM and never ask for a thing in return except a bit of respect and common courtesy.

Anyway, I'm sorry you dislike me even more now XXL, I'm simply posting my thoughts like anyone else does, and I firmly stand by them, what kind of a person would I be if I abandoned my beliefs at the first sign of resistance? I'm sorry if I pissed anyone off with what I said, but it's how I feel. As for people still thinking I'm butthurt about SQ or whatnot, I'm not, I actually posted a bunch of stupid sh.t in that thread that I wish I could take back, but what's done is done. Spazz, you need to learn how to post without insulting people, all I read was a bunch of sh.t talk in your post, if you want to throw down fisticuffs, fine. I've got Jack Johnson and Tom O'Leary waiting for ya, right here. Frag, I'm sorry for saying you're putting up a front and other stupid disrespectful sh.t I probably said to you.

I know how to post without insulting people I do it on the daily. You just need to stop arrogant and then I wouldn't have to insult you. But watch out he'll throw down with me, I might get the e-beatdown.
