No, but I speak in an annoying fake English accent.

In a rare instance of me agreeing with a Youtube comment they are totally right about the 180 degree line´╗┐ there.

Attention amateur editors - there are ways you can, and times you should, break the 180 rule. This does not qualify.

Yeah. Needs more contra zoom.

I liked it cause it made it look like he was talking to himself.

Has your life become sun-sensitive, Texan and full of rock instrumentals? You may have Edgar Winter Syndrome.

Sex being drawn out to 3 seconds -- yeah, right.

Fantastic. There are times where that would come in handy though.

Has your life become full of an unending series of pulp novels? You may have Edgar Rice Burroughs Syndrome.

Our kitten is choppy and full of zooms. He used to be condensed too, but we got lazy about leaving his food out all day and now he's expanded somewhat.

Unless endless grief is shovelled on to you, then you know it's Lester Dent Syndrome.

What do you call that syndrome where you meander and drift vacantly through the days like a run-down and failing automaton; where your hopes and ambitions have withered and died; where the things that used to give you pleasure and solace now seem dessicated and worthless; and where your nights are a tiring and tormented stumble across an obstacle course of bizarre and stress-inducing dreamscapes and periods of enervated wakefulness? Does that syndrome have a name? Because it can have mine if it doesn't.

Nah, I imagine that's probably much worse, Artw.

Isn't this really that thing they for some reason called "Hip hop montage" back in the nineties? I remember this both from Aronofsky and Ritchie.

It's Smash cutting. I'm not sure who was the first to really start overusing it, but my bet would be on Guy Ritchie rather than Wright.

Or not! Like Joakim Ziegler linked to, it's Fast Cutting. Aronofsky used it a few times early on.
