    I see, I see.

    Well, in the end, it's a good video. I guess I just wanted some context for a bunch of the stuff XD

    I think perhaps I should have explained the theme I was heading for, which is that in Riku's mind, he was in the right, up until the battle of Hollow Bastion, and so I wanted to try explore that perspective. So there is naturally a lot of Sora (particularly Sora falling - both metaphorically and literally, he does it all the time in KH1). I think it's a fair criticism to say I could have featured more Riku on the balance, especially given scenes from Re:CoM are part of the HD 1.5 Remix.

    As for repeating scenes, I'm a bit confused as to what are specifically referring to - the two shots that are cutting back and forth but running their length, like at around 0:51-0:56, the beginning and end scenes where a lot of scenes from the intro are played in reverse, or the literally repeated shots like 0:29-0:32? The last one is actually a tribute to the official video where that happens quite a bit - it's a bit of a visual pun since the music is repeating itself - In fact the whole intro of the AMV is timed pretty much to match the shots of the official video.

    Hmm...Well, it's consistent, that's the one thing that comes to mind when watching this.
    I dunno, while it's good to give attention to the beautiful shots of KH, it's hard to focus on two separate themes. My other problem with it is that it seems that most of the shots also included Sora/Kairi. In it of itself, this is fine, but the theme is "Riku's mentality." IMO, Sora got a little more screen time than Riku. I may be crazy, but it just seems that way.

    On the technical side, one of the things I try to avoid is using the same scene. You had quite a bit of that going on. It may just be more akin to your style, which is fine, but that's just something I think about when making an AMV. Sometimes I forget about a scene that I put and don't pay attention to it, but most of the time I really think about that.
    It's timed well...I can't really give it any other criticism.

    Overall, a very consistent video. Is the video good? Yes more than no. Is it great? No. Very good. Not great. About...7.5 out of ten.
