kaydeefalls: winter soldier holding cap's shield (winter soldier)
[personal profile] kaydeefalls
For the record, I have seen the new X-Men movie, and very much enjoyed it. But it didn't seem to deter my fannish brain from being all Steve&Bucky, all the time. Alas.

I planned on having a Steve vid ready for Memorial Day, but I needed to rip the draft apart and rework it for actual coherency, so whatever, it's a week late for the deadline I made up in my head. Anyway. Apparently I now possess a multitude of Steve feels as well as Bucky feels, who knew? I'm kind of embarrassed that he was my least favorite Avenger up until Winter Soldier came out, but in fairness, I still don't think the first Cap movie was all that great. It's a lot easier to rewatch when I fast forward through all the cartoonish fight sequences and just focus on the parts that include Bucky, Peggy, Stark, or the Commandos. Or Steve being a goober and running into things. I did not include Steve running into things in this vid, which is a pity, because he does that a lot and it's kind of hilarious. But it had nothing to do with the story I was trying to tell in this one, so. Maybe next time.

LYRICS:

Hello, hello, hello

Waking up at the start of the end of the world
But it's feeling just like every other morning before
Now I wonder what my life is going to mean if it's gone
The cars are moving like a half a mile an hour and I
Started staring at the passengers who're waving goodbye
Can you tell me what was ever really special about me all this time?

I believe the world is burning to the ground
Oh well, I guess we're gonna find out
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Well I believe it all is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come

I think it turned ten o'clock but I don't really know
And I can't remember caring for an hour or so
Started crying and I couldn't stop myself
I started running but there's no where to run to
I sat down on the street took a look at myself
Said where you going man you know the world is headed for hell
Say your goodbyes if you've got someone you can say goodbye to

I believe the world is burning to the ground
Oh well, I guess we're gonna find out
Let's see how far we've come (right now)
Let's see how far we've come
Well I believe it all is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess we're gonna pretend,
Let's see how far we've come (again)
Let's see how far we've come

It's gone, gone, baby, it's all gone
There's no one on the corner and there's no one at home
It was cool, cool, it was just all cool
Now it's over for me and it's over for you
Well it's gone, gone, baby, it's all gone
There is no one on the corner and there's no one at home
Well it was cool, cool, it was just all cool
Now it's over for me and it's over for you

I believe the world is burning to the ground
Oh well I guess we're gonna find out
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Well I, believe, it all, is coming to an end
Oh well, I guess, we're gonna pretend,
Let's see how far we've come (again)
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come
Let's see how far we've come

EEEEE!!! This is my new favorite vid! STEVE! I love this!

You're not alone in not connecting to Steve right away. I liked Captain America alright, but it stood out more in comparison to Thor which I thought was poorly put together, and he was also my least fav of the ensemble (though that doesn't mean I disliked him, I just liked the others more). It wasn't until Cap2 that I started having Steve feels.

Yes to everything in this comment. I enjoyed Captain America more than I thought I would, but Cap 2 was what really made me fall in love with Steve.

From: [personal profile] sholio
Ooh, this is really fun! :D I love the way that the past/present scenes are juxtaposed; I think my favorite is the cross-editing between Steve jumping across the broken bridge in the exploding Hydra facility, cutting to Steve making that long jump during the fight with the Chitauri. But it's all really well done!

This is SPECTACULAR. The editing is just breathless and so, so well executed. The moment when Steve finally hurls his shield at Bucky, after that beat of silence - wonderful use of musical phrasing.

"Can you tell me what was ever really special about me all this time?" OH, STEVE! You are the rarest of them all.

Peggy's expression when she looks at him made me want to cry.

I love the refrain at the end with Natasha and Nick both walking away from their pasts. And Bucky, unable to even comprehend his.

This captures Steve's story beautifully across all three films. All the applause.

I really enjoyed this. Great choice of clips for the lyrics and blending the 3 films together.

I am not okay with the clip chosen for "the passengers waving goodbye". I saw what you did, there.

I am, on the other hand, so very completely okay with the rest of this.

I already know a vid that I like to that song (for Homestuck) so I expected to have difficulty switching, but this fits so perfectly it wasn't a problem. The parallels and the switching between the movies worked great, I enjoyed it a lot.

This is just so fantastic. I just kept getting goosebumps all over my arms. I'm actually running the Avengers Ball at Dragon Con this year and would love to be able to use this if you're okay with that. We're partially DJing this year with fanvids and I feel like this would fit in so beautifully I'm practically shaking with it. Please let me know ASAP as the con is in 9 days.

Cheers! :)

This is wonderful! I love how you interpret Steve's story, where "let's see how far we've come" includes Steve Rogers BURNING SHIT TO THE GROUND when he has to, and inspiring others to do that same. And the way you use the parallels between the three different films to draw out Steve's determination, adrenaline junkie-y, throw-himself-on-the-problem Steveness is great.

i can't believe i haven't seen this one of yours before because steve is p much my ultimate favorite when it comes down to the line and this is just such a great him vid??? SO GOOD ugh look at all of these comparisons and moments and just.

the whole thing is great but the fucking 'there's no one in the corner and there's no one at home' that whole sequence is just particularly gut wrenchingly stellar. that was unfair and unkind and i love you for this whole vid.
