Best movie ever?

07.06.2008
Scott Weinberg over at Cinematical posted a video which he called the best movie of 2008. He also thanked film critic Erik Lundegaard for posting it on his blog. When I traveled over to said blog, Mr. Lundegaard also called it the best film of 2008. He said it also made him cry. Iíve posted it BELOW, because it is indeed wonderful. Is this the start of a viral sensation, or this thing going to blow over and barely cause a stir, like that LAZY SUNDAY video a while backÖ


Where the Hell is Matt? (2008) from Matthew Harding on Vimeo
Extra Tidbit: So what do you think? Is this better than GET SMART (the best movie of 2008 so far) or not?

Not that great

I don't know if its better than Get Smart but its not that good. It would have been more interesting to hear people from each culture talk, maybe all answer the same question or something. A bunch of people doing the same dance in different places... I smiled for about the first 4 places then it seemed to go on and on and on... without anything interesting happening. I would rate this video as 2.5 out of 5 on the "neat-o-meter".

This guy was the biggest thing on youtube a while back. I loved it then and I love it now. This makes me feel like I'm part of the human race.

As for stride, it does not make me want to buy stride(whatever it is)

Timpura, I'm glad someone has brains and figured out the Stride thing. On his web site he actually explains hpw it all happened, and indeed how Stride paid for it!

As for the video, I dug it. Made me smile a lot, and without being too corny, made me realize that there is still some good in the world.

Has anyone noticed...

The video thanks Stride at the end, so most likely, the people who made it didn't pay for crap. So all the people who are complaing about the artisitic value/documentary value lost or that some kid's rich parents paid for him to travel the world, it's most likely that Stride (not his parents) paid for the trip and told him (who may be a Stride employee) to make a video that gets people's attention and to put Stride at the end. Next people are gonna complain about the ball-girl who "caught" the

Next people are gonna complain about the ball-girl who "caught" the ball off the wall at the minor league game because she should be an All-Star rather than a cheap parlor trick, or they could jump into jeans, if they had parents who would buy them a hundred pair. Get over yourself, it's advertising.

i love it

pr_frink..well said. i agree 100%. it's similar to when a child says he hates something just because everyone else loves it. we've heard it all before: "i hated the matrix/lord of the rings/star wars". I mean these are clearly well made films that have made a significant impact on society and that are loved by millions, if not billions of people. but there's always that one guy who "HATES" one or all of these films, for no other reason than to go against the grain. i think we should be able to

Why do so many people assume something is horrible if they don't enjoy it? That's all you read on these kinds of sites anymore. It's either completely amazing or the worst thing ever created. My guess is that the people who didn't get something out of this decided to hate it and be the cool,cynical guy because other people really enjoyed it. And even if for some reason you truly hated it (which I highly doubt) why chastise others for liking it? Who gives a shit if someone enjoyed a harmless,

And even if for some reason you truly hated it (which I highly doubt) why chastise others for liking it? Who gives a shit if someone enjoyed a harmless, four-minute video of different people dancing around the world? People like smooveluv and dellamorte dellamore need to get over themselves.

Any video that reminds people that we are more than yourself, your block, your neighborhood, your city, your country, has my kudos.

Nail on the head

is what you guys just hit.

If I was rich enough to travel the world with a cameraman, I'd dance a jig also. The whole profound enjoy your life no matter where you are is the same recycled new age garbage we've seen for years (Mike Myers couldn't even make it funny).

Feel free to stick up for this as art, but all I see is a series of wasted opportunities for somebody to create some type of meaningful global documentary. Instead, he feels the most valuable thing audiences can take away

And Benj - I think its find for "underprivileged idiots to bitch about" things that suck - and this sucks. It sucks big, herpes-infested donkey nards.

Nice that you think we suck.

Please no more , like Numa , the SW kid and all these other " Viral " videos , they are somewhat entertaining for the 3 or so minutes it takes to watch them , then that's it , they blow chunks .

This was always an assinine concept , watching Rosie Oddonel pontificate about toe fungus would be more interesting . people stop watching this garbage , there is more interesting stuff out there in the online video community . Stop giving these rejects attention .

Where is Matt , if he ever

This video is nice and so are the others. Like others have said this dude has made more than one of these "films", the first of which I saw what seems like a LOOONG time ago. The first one I saw did have better music too. Fun to watch none the less.

My first reaction was to wonder how much time, money, and gasoline that shoot absorbed. And then I realized the answer: Probably a hell of a lot less than any other film project this year. So, kudos. I don't see what's supposedly so touching about it, but it was reasonably entertaining for five minutes, and what more can you really ask than that?

yeah, i dont see how this is appealing in any way. a privileged white kid travelling around the world doing a stupid dance. Oh yeah, that's a great concept.

PRETENTIOUS GARBAGE

I especially love the opening part where this pot-bellied Jackass is dancing in front of people whose stomachs are probably eating themselves because of extreme hunger.

ok i take back the rip-off part because it's apparantly made by the same person, but i like the original better, he needs to think of something else to do

If this was completed 2 weeks ago it's a complete rip-off of the original, which had better music, check it out instead.

Amazing

To the commenters below: You're all just jealous. And ill-informed, in some cases. The video was completed two weeks ago, and it wasn't exactly made for a dime either...

Anyway, this is amazing. No, it's not a "movie" per-se. But it is a celebration of cultures, of people and of our world, and a beautiful one at that. It doesn't take itself seriously, and that's the point. Very heart-warming and inspirational.

must say, i throughly enjoyed that.
definitely not a film, or for that matter, the best film ever.
but there's something about seeing different cultures dancing that warms my cold heart

The only thing about this video that makes me cry is some slacker kid travelled around the world on mom and dad's dime and I'm stuck working 40 hours a week.

Uhm yeah.

It is a fun video, but...
-it's really, really old.
-it's not a "film"
- this "story" is not at all film related
-your refering to this as a film and making some sort of "get smart" reference doesnt change the fact that your now reporting on some guys viral video, on a film journalism site. I know we're all about having fun here at joblo, so excuse me for sounding harsh, but I don't want this to turn into another "haha omg look at the funny video" site.
