Welcome to the Movie Review Page

Sure I really wanted to be a Director
But being far to lazy , and not talented enough, it never happened, so I’m gonna add my 2 cent reviews to movies as I see them.

No spoilers.. haha , well mostly no spoilers, just my opinion

  • Lets get started

  • Select Video

    You can select the parts of the video you want, and mark it as a 'Favourite' or you can discard it, from the view. Typically you just select the part you want to use in your video.

  • Blade Runner 2049

    Did I really remember the original when I went to see this. Not sure, I remember ‘replicants’ and “Wake up , time to die” and the rain, it was a few years ago since my last viewing, never mind the release date. Well I think they went straight for the jugular when it comes to having an iconic look, and yeah, I suppose they were trying too hard. Does it look iconic.. I don’t know. Sure it looks good. Some great sets and scenes. You know , I avoided most of the trailers, and didn’t read any reviews (ha, so why read this … DONT !!) go and see it.

    The acting is all fine, but its 15 maybe 20 mins too long, the twist , doesn’t quite twist, the end doesn’t really end, and the climax doesn’t really climax, it would be like having sex with me… ok its much better than that. Ah its coming to me now , it is what it is , a sequel. A sequel 30 years later and its all deep and meaningful. Well it probably was on paper, but seems to be missing the magic spark that makes it more than the sum of its parts. Perhaps the flaws are only visible in hindsight, cos I had a few ‘Wha ?’ moments. Oh and before I forget, hohoho do you remember in the first movie, where super high tech replicants are running around , that look just like humans, but they had no wifi/mobile phones.. Harrison has to go and use a pay phone … ok unrelated, but a little Si fi quirk , perhaps I wasn’t such a big fan of the original (liked it, just not in a cult way). Verdict oh 7ish out of 10 , sure go and see it .

  • Append

    You and add your selection to the timeline, using the 'Append , Insert or Overwrite' buttons.

  • Timeline

    On the timeline, you can assemble all the video, in the order you want, and change their position at anytime, in a process know as 'non-destructive non-linear editing'

  • Trim

    On the timeline, you can make fine tuning adjustments using the 'slip, slid, ripple and roll ' tools

  • Cropping

    You can also make adjustments to the video itself, by cropping it, or you can zoom in or out, to particular parts of the screen

  • Audio Adjustments

    You can also adjust the audio levels, up or down, depending on wheather you are mixinig them with music or not.

  • Text & Effects

    You can also very easily add text and other effects, such as a simple dissolve

  • Sharing

    Once your video is complete, it is very easy to compress it, for internet sharing. You can see some sample videos, in the right hand panel

  • Audio Editing

    Recording On Location

    A group of us, went out with an audio recording device, similar to this one, and recorded sounds. I recorded my bicycle freewheel, and a creeky door, and a few others

  • Upload

    All the audio sounds were uploaded on to a computer, using a USB cable. For working with audio you really need headphones, or a fully equipped sound studio. Its easier to get headphones

  • Pro Tools

    We then create a new project in Pro Tools, using the same settings, as the recording device. In this case for, sample rate of 48kHz , 24 bit Waf files

  • Trimming

    Once we import the sounds into Pro Tools, we can trim, waste and poor takes, out so we are just left with the sound we want.

  • Mixing & Effects

    With the raw sounds, we can now mix them together or apply effects.Then we can export the mixed sounds. You can see a sample of an audio mixed file in the Right Hand Panel
