My Quest

Posted in General at 5:49 pm by Ian

Whoever it was who decided that fight scenes in movies should be composed of 20 million cuts lasting an average of 0.04 seconds each from a jerky camera that’s 4 feet too close to the actors must be tracked down and killed. And I’m just the guy to do it.

    Let me guess. You just got back from Batman Begins, right?

    Sounds like our Concert video from this year, well, with the exception of the word fight scene. Or maybe I’m just bitter. But yeah, willing to join the cause as long as we take down ballroom dance videographer too. 😉

    Can I join in? I hate it how in movies nowadays you don’t even NEED a good / well choreographed fight scene anymore because all you see its like close ups of someone’s elbow or knee or whatever and jerky camera action. “It’s disorganized and erratic just like a *real fight*”… yea… it sucks too, and isnt much fun to watch…

    (I still say the best fight scene, like, ever was the sword battle in Princess Bride between the man in black and Indigo Montoya.)

    “Then why are you smiling?”
    “Because I know something you do not know.”
    “Oh. And what is that?”
    “I am not left handed.”

    “I’m not left handed either.”

    Inconceivable!

    Don’t forget to add the director of the Bourne Palsy… sorry.. Supremacy to the list of executions. Doug Lyman and others still do a fair job of filming fight scenes, so it’s not over yet…
