This release (like the first) is almost impossible to review in a normal fashion. Watching it is a little like dreaming. Things don’t always connect or make obvious sense on the surface, but they FEEL right. I spent the running time thinking alternately about what Blue Yoda might be saying at any given moment, and letting my mind wander on to what things meant to me. I really liked that it inspired thoughts of my own rather than simply telling me what to think.
I’m not sure what else I can say other than I enjoyed it. I think I liked this one more than the original actually. Although I have no idea what to rate it numerically. Might have to think about that a bit longer.
By the way, Blue…thanks for introducing me to that cover of Modern Love. I really enjoyed it.
Like the first it was a weird but nice experience.
I agree with UA’s statement about “like dreaming”.
This is not your regular fanedit were faneditors try to improve or change a movie.
This is basicaly making a new movie with various sources, without a clear plot, but with the feeling that the editor tries to tell something, to us, and maybe to himself also.
Worths checking to make your own mind about it.
PS: the first “part” of this edit was released 2 years ago as an AVI, and is present in a folder along with the DVD release of this one)
This review is based on my opinions and my viewing experience. Nothing is meant as an attack. Spoiler warning.
This edit is pretty bad ass! It’s all very innovative and stimulating
I loved the random percision of jumping from one thing to the next, these switches never really seemed abrupt or out of place and it pushes the experience forward just right.
There seemed to be an internal battle of wills, something i can relate to, i think this was handled nicely, it has a cool yet dangerous feel, on the edge, seemed a bit melencholy at times and was 100% awesome.
My one and only complaint is the changing aspect ratios, I dont like changing aspect ratios within a film. It didn’t ruin the experience at all, but to me the edit is a bit incomplete because of this.
Audio was perfect, no jumpy volume or nothing
9 out of 10!
Side Notes: I really really like this edit and found it very inspiring, thank’s for putting it together, blue I think this should be required viewing among the community here.
Groovy. There’s no plot, per se, but there is a flow. In the spirit of an impressionist painting, this piece floats sound and images down the river of your mind.
I’m glad BlueYoda didn’t spoil the fun by listing the sources. It’s better to discover them as they happen. There are pleasantly surprising juxtapositions, some of which remind me of MTV when it used to play music videos.
This is the kind of collage your movie and music collection would create if the files began to talk amongst themselves and hook up. . . behind your back while you were sleeping.
So I watched this edit a few days ago. I had ZERO idea of what to expect going in. But I remembered hearing that it had gotten some high praise from people on here.
At first I was thinking to myself, "damn, is this whole edit gonna be with this bear?!" but I kept watching. Very cool to see all the films that were used in this assembly and how blueyoda connected them all.
blueyoda's choices made sense to me and this edit was an extremely enjoyable 22 minutes. I'm going to have to check out part 1.
