the fruits of wasting my time [Oct. 26th, 2012|09:29 pm]

I went on a many-hour search for decent AMVs. There are so many bad ones, so many ones with songs I can't stand, and so many with really odd editing. *sighs*

Finale, Rebuild of Evangelion. Great (mostly instrumental) song with such an amazing beat (bought it: Finale by Madeon), some very nice edits. Makes me want the next movie already. :P

I then went on a FF7 AMV watching binge, seeing lots of meh ones set to meh songs. Some I liked:

This is War, FF7 Advent Children & Crisis Core. I freaking love this song, and the edits are pretty good. The way this vid begins and ends is awesome, and the way "Omnislash version 6" (it took me forever to figure out what the hell the move was) is incorporated is very nice. The quality of the video sucks, though.

Dance with the Devil shows mostly the same fight scenes but in much better quality, set to decent music. Not a big fan of the edits, though.

I didn't like the actual video, but I like the song: Remember the Name. It's by Fort Minor. The chorus really resonates:

This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill
Fifteen percent concentrated power of will
Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain
And a hundred percent reason to remember the name

Memories, done to the song by Within Temptation. Love the song, and it was nice seeing good quality non-fighting footage. It seemed really slashy, though. ^^;

Headstrong, song by Trapt. Nice use of the Bahamut fight scene.

If Today Was Your Last Day, (meh) song by Nickelback. Lots of decent quality footage from Crisis Core. I like Zack with short hair.

Hope you like the others! (I didn't think they were as good as the Eva one, though.)

Have you seen the Avatar version of Remember the Name? One of my favorite fan vids ever.

No I hadn't, thanks for the link! It's quite good. I love the quotes from the show they added.
