Tolkien Movie Review

I’ve learned so much about video editing over the last couple of months making a series of videos on The Hobbit that I thought I’d try my hand at a video review of the new movie about the young Tolkien.

But I still have much to learn, not least about fair use and copyright law. This is the third version I’ve uploaded – the first two attempts were blocked by YouTube for copyright infringement, that is, because I used too many clips from the movie. I don’t understand how this works because I see other YouTube movie reviews that consist entirely of clips from the movie under review.

Anyway… This third version suffers a bit because by this third attempt I got fed up and so careless on the editing. And for all I know it will also be blocked. If so, then here is a simple text version of the review:

This is a boring movie.
