Went on a shorts spree, just finished off the narrative shorts...

Narrative Shorts

A Brief History of Princess X 6/10

The film wasn't really that special, but I hadn't heard the story before and it was interesting.

Walpurgisnacht 4/10

Just felt like a student film to me. I liked the music but was otherwise not really that into it.

Laboratorium 6/10

Creepy, great sound and looks really good too.

Fear & Shame 4/10

Found it kind of annoying, maybe if I cared about Robert Pattinson this would be more fun.

Happiness 7/10

A bit heavy-handed but nicely bleak and great animation.

Breaker 5/10

Interesting world but the story was kind of pointless.

Dreamcatcher 6/10

The acting was awful but luckily was only a small part of it. The editing was pretty awesome though and if there was no dialogue it would've been so much better.

Alike 6/10

Fine, but again heavy-handed and a bit annoying.

The Hunchback 5/10

Feel like I was missing something from this because I didn't really enjoy it or get it, there were just a few alright moments.

Applied Ballardianism 4/10

Didn't get it :shrug:

Memory Box 5/10

I tried to read about this to make more sense of it, and I feel like I did not watch the same film as everyone else. Doesn't really go anywhere.

Life Inside a Secret Chinese Bitcoin Mine 5/10

I still don't understand what bitcoin is or what a bitcoin mine does.

Cream 8/10

Fun and bleak and creepy, with really cool animation.

The Lost Dreams of Naoki Hayakawa 5/10

Found it kind of boring and it didn't really click with me.

Hyper-Reality 7/10

I really liked the concept, but I felt it could've been explored in a better waym, still entertaining and interesting.

Life Cycles 6/10

This I kinda liked until it ended. I liked the repetition and the slight changes in repetition, and I thought it was going to be about these little changes and moments of growth but nope.

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

At least Experimental Shorts is a no-brainer, we both loved Night Light the most. Music videos, we could go for All the Stars on both our lists but since Ama or Anvil just missed the cut I'd be happy with either of those too if you felt strongly for them. Narrative will be a little trickier since between our three lists (including mighty's) we don't have a common film in the top 3. mighty is there any way I can convince you of the genius of The Hunchback? :D Would we be OK with picking Laboratorium or perhaps Cream since all of us seemed to like those? And if both are acceptable, which would you pick first, which second?

Hunchback was too annoying to get a vote from me :P but I would settle for Laboritorium though Cream is my preference.

'Ama' really moved me. I loved it. I really liked both of the other two and wouldn't argue with either.

I preferred 'Laboratorium' to 'Cream'. Both would seem to be good consensus picks.
That's all, folks!

I give the edge to Laboratorium as well though they're both excellent.

So Laboratorium, Night Light, Ama? :cheers:

Oh, are you sure? They'd be my picks but I don't want to unfairly get my way in all three sections.

And, for what it's worth, I think I'm going to switch around my own silver and bronze awards. I liked the Ross Hogg film quite a bit (although the very ending bit of quasi-moralising damaged it ever so slightly for me) but 'The Hunchback' has grown in my reckoning as I thought and considered it.

Thanks to you for pulling everything together here, outdoorcats! Thanks to Carmel and PdA as well for coming up with the three programmes. Very enjoyable it was to view all the selections!
That's all, folks!
