2008: What a Year it Was

Never underestimate the power of Youtube, a haven for people who like to edit pieces of video together and create homages of things they enjoy. Matt Shapiro has been making videos for a couple of years now. Some are fan-made trailers for films like The Departed and Batman Begins (if it were marketed as a romantic comedy).

These are fun, but his best work is when he year-end homages for films of a particular year. In 2007 he had a four-minute clip set to Once‘s “Falling Slowly.” For 2008, Matt Shapiro does it again. After watching this clip below ask yourself, was 2008 a good year for movies or is Matt just a good editor?
