[livejournal.com profile] bantha_fodder and I have been watching too many Pretender vids lately, and have decided to help you on your journey through YouTube's large aray of vids by reviewing those we feel have impacted us highly. Or made us LOL. Handy!

Pen's reviews are here.

VID ONE:
"Twins" by Pretender55



This vid is set to "Clubbed to Death" by Rob Dougan, and is a psychological profile of what it means to be a twin in today's rabidly commercial society.

Really.

The idea behind this vid was inventive and fresh - the only problem being? The song is 7 and a half minutes long, and, well...there's only so much thinly-veiled twin-lovin' phrases you can have flash up on screen before it starts reading like someone's LJ rant on why Miss P and Jarod aren't the OTP OMG LYLE ISN'T RILLY HER BROTHER HES GOOD OKAI?!

2.5 out of five lols



Times we get hit over the head with canon in words and video: 8

Times "MONSTER" appears on screen: 4

Amount of time in seconds "MONSTER" floats at us: 26 seconds

Times I laughed out loud: 3

Number of times scenes from Island of the Haunted are used: 0!

Scenes with Jarod: 2

Minus points: the useless facts on twins, TOO FUCKING LONG.

VID TWO
"Fix You" by Fleurdejude



Vid Zwei is a Parker-through-Jarod's-eyes piece to Coldplay's "Fix You".

The opening organ solo mixes perfectly with a moody scene from IOTH and Jarod catching the news after Thomas Gates is shot. The mixture of Young and Older!Parker and Jarod, the heartbreaking scene from "Bank" where Parker tells her father she's fine - all this captures everything we've come to love and freakin' hate from our favourite un-touching couple.

The rising action at about 2mins 40secs has great effect, although the timing is a little off. The scene from IOTH in the rain is especially fantastic. All in all, a fun, heart-wrenching time for all!

no lols out of five, just loves.



fade from gigolo!jarod to miss parker on the couch (or vice versa): 2 points

number of times scenes from Island of the Haunted are used: Too many to count - around 20 or so

no touching: 4 points

bonus points for the rising action, the great use of black and white and not overdoing the fades.

Wasn't that fun. Until next time, remember - the first rule of Pretender Club is NO TOUCHING.

I made this for [livejournal.com profile] jenncho last week, and forgot to post it for all of you as well:



WHEN CAPTAIN BITCH, PLEASE MET TODD. It's the romantic comedy of the year!

Re: CI - all the clips for "Brother's Keeper"? Make me so happy I could just DIE. Hobo!Brother! Eames' face! Goren looking *SAD*! Ma Goren in a wig!

I'm excited, people.

I'm rushing off to bed now, but I have to link you to the best. Vid. Ever. [livejournal.com profile] weaverandom told me about it a hundred years ago, but she gave me the best present by showing it to me.

Jensen Ackles as Jason Todd?

YSPLS.

No doubt, every DC nerd has seen it. But to you, my SPN fangirls, here it is.

"Hello Mr. Zebra" by [livejournal.com profile] monkeycrackmary

I'm so writing Supernatural/DC crossovers now. Harley/Dean! After my Miss Parker/Bruce Wayne. And Criminal Intent/The Pretender. And...
