Well, I am a fan of blueyoda's assembly work, because in every piece there are moments of true original genius. This is also true for this one. When the beating of Biff raping Lorraine turns from run 2 to run 3, it was really tense and I found myself entirely caught in the short movie. I had a somwhat hard time getting into it though. Run 1 was quite confusing and it took me some convincing myself and trying hard to adapt to the pace, the sound and the cuts, because it is an experience in its own kind. Well, I guess when it comes to art and to artsy approaches, this can be tolerated or even expected from the artist.
Knowing "Run, Lola, Run" and being very impressed by it, the theme wasn't new to me and Lola does a far better job working as a movie for the masses in its accessability and the narrative structure. This here was a weird time travel dream inspired by it and as such, it was a much more difficult task for me as the audience. I agree to what Adabisi said about being essential for this short to know the original BTTF and this is a part that is not good, because I think a thing should stand on its own, or feature the words that knowing BTTF is necessary to follow the plot (and know, why Marty is in the scenes at all).
However, thank you, blueyoda for taking me again on such an interesting drive through the world of your wide imagination.
As usual I have added one point to narrative and enjoyment, because of FE's policy of being supernice.
Audio/Video Quality: 9
It looks great. I'd guess this was made using the Blu-Ray source as the resultant SD image looks very nice.
Visual Editing: 10
I am in awe of BlueYoda's talent, vision and invention. Truly taking fanediting to a professional level both technically and above all creatively. 10/10 almost isn't good enough for the work here.
Audio Editing: 10
The new music was wonderful, inspired and seemless. Perfection.
So, so cleverly put together giving the viewer a totally fresh perspective on the source.
Loved it from the first frame to the last. I'd almost knock a point off because I was bummed out by the end of the edit by how amateurish my editing skills are by comparison to BlueYoda's LOL
Wow, what the hell was that. In a strange paradox I bet it’s near impossible to understand this short if you haven’t seen Back to the Future, while if you have it’s hard to set aside your preconceived notions of how the plot should play out. All I know for sure about this edit is that I loved it. Amazing, amazing work. Brilliant design and execution. It’s a sign that something’s great when, come the end, I’m asking for more. What more can I say? Great short.
This edit was mind blowing. There was just soo much work done here. I really liked it. The intro work was phenomenal, the B&W flash backs were great. The integration of the clock ticking was amazing.
I think the part that stands out to me most was the audio work done when confronting Biff in the 'third run', that was genius.
IMHO, this sort of editing sets the bar.
In fact, because of what I've seen here, I'm now going to seek out Blue Yoda edits.
Just watched the extras bit. It was nice to see, but when I watched that line in the edit the first time, I immediately knew where the line had come from and what had been done. (sort of a fan of BTTF).
I had also thought some slight frame rate alterations may have been done to make the audio line up with the video precisely - which further backed that this was genius. Good stuff man!
