Summary: For never was there a tale of more woe; than this of Juliet & her Romeo.

the (perfectly edited) and dark ending of it.

Bringing it back old school

Vid Title: There There
Vidder: Luminosity
Fandom: Angel the Series
Summary: Illyria totally disrupted Wesley.
Reccer's Comments: Okay, so I am reccing a vid that is over a decade old at this point. I recently reheard the song There There (The Boney King of Nowhere) by Radiohead, and remembered this vid and how amazing it is.

I wasn't even particularly invested in Angel the series at this point, and especially not Wesley or Fred, but this video gave me many feelings I didn't even know I had. Lum does a great juxtaposition of Wesley, struggling to deal with the spectre of Fred and the horror of her body being inhabited by someone else with Illyria, god-like but lost and trying to find her way in the new world she's found herself into. The song is haunting and dreamy, and Lum's subtle effects and cuts underscore the melancholy well. Years on, Luminosity is still just one of my favorite vidders ever.

Suspiria: Raspberry Swirl by se42

Vid Title: Raspberry Swirl
Vidder: se42
Fandom: Suspiria
Summary: Suzy enrolls in a prestigious dance academy, befriends a girl named Sarah, and uncovers an ancient evil. (Or, welcome to evil dance school.)
Reccer's Comments: This is very cool and really well done! I love the use of color and how the cutting never lets up (and it kind of makes me want to watch the source despite not being fond of horror movies).

Alien Series: Stayin' Low by hollywoodgrrl

Vid Title: Stayin Low!
Vidder: Hollywoodgrrl
Fandom: Aliens series
Summary: Hopin' she can sock it to me one mo' time.
Reccer's Comments: I was inspired to post this by the last vid recced also being an Aliens fanvid! Stayin' Low is one of my favorite fanvids, full stop. Bouncy, kinetic, wonderfully cut, and seamlessly combining 4 movies to create an incredible portrait of Ripley, one of the original sci-fi badasses. I cannot say enough good things about this vid or this vidder! If you like the Aliens series and have not already seen this, you really, really should.

Alien series: 16 Tons by genusshrike

Vid Title: 16 Tons
Vidder: [personal profile] genusshrike

Reccer's Comments: This is awesome and chilling! The song works so well (especially in conjunction with the class themes that were particularly strong in the first few films of the series)

Captain America: U.S. by innerbrat

Vid Title: U.S.
Vidder: innerbrat
Fandom: Captain Americ
Summary: It’s supersoldiers all the way down.
Reccer's Comments: I love this vid because it takes the existing canon, looks at the subtext, and makes it text. The super soldier program is such an awful idea and the only time it isn't a crime against nature, peace, and common sense is when it's viewed through Steve Rogers. Everyone wants the power and they want Steve until they realize it won't be coming through him. This vid doesn't shy away from how good Steve is, but it focuses our attention on the other aspects of creating "super men", the ambiguity, the horror, and the dream of being powerful/invulnerable and how contagious, glorious, and destructive that dream is.


Vid Title: Ballroom Blitz
Vidder: [ profile] absolutedestiny 
Fandom: Ghostbusters
Summary: Total protonic reversal. (And it turned into a ballroom blitz)
Reccer's Comments: despite what people say regarding the remake/reboot, i still like the original.
