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!
Wow, that was really nice. Lots of creativity and skill at display in this short-movie-fanedit. I think there should be a subgenre defined for these short-movie-fanedits made out of a full length-movie. I have seen a few of these and so far this is the best one. Great idea, creatively and skillfully executed.
1 point went down in some categories because a) especially at the beginning sometimes the music was too dominant and b)it expects a bit to know the source and c) it doesn't quite fully achieve the full energy that Run-Lola achieved (but then that one had more time to develop it).
I haven't seen Run Lola Run (yet), but I am a big fan of BTTF and things dealing with alternate timelines, so this edit was pretty rockin', in my opinion. BlueYoda did a fine job putting together the different clips to form a narrative.
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.
