I'm consistently impressed with Mike Schmitt's work on the Grime edits. It's always super stylish, original and filled with great tunes. I don't think there's a new edit that comes out where I'm not trying to find out the names of the songs used. This new piece premiered at the Bicycle Film Fest and I think it goes beyond your average fixed freestyle edit and can stand alone as just a bad-ass film in general. Utilizing footage from their recent world tour, this is Grime TV 2.
It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.
I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
