A frag movie is in many ways similar to graffiti – a way to show off one’s skills within the game. But often, lost in the grind of including everything the player found impressed himself: The main goal of a frag movie should be about entertaining the viewers. In this small showcase of frag movies, I decided to take a look at some under appreciated/forgotten hidden gems of frag movies.
First up, Our friend Baerbel set off to make a movie for himself. It might not impress many. And, it might show signs of “my first video editing thingi”. But in the midst of that, a highly charming, entertaining, and ultimately very intuitively paced insight into the a humble life of German TF2 player. – released yesterday.
The last night of my culinary travels around the city of Valencia (Spain), I was dragged against my will into the worst restaurant I could imagine. Lit by flourecent ceiling lights, a wallpaper like the puke of an early 90’s MTV music video, and a cubic meter of rude hermaphroditic waitor (honestly) to take our orders. Who could have predicted the meal to be absolutely world class fine dining?
The following frag movie is similar. Forget about the Ray Charlesed colour correction, the 90’s overused extacy music – The frags, prediction, and pacing of this movie are worthy nothing less than those of world class fine dining. -Featuring the soldier Traxantic, edited by himself and Aron, released November 2009.
The next movie, featuring TF2’s answer to Maradonna: Chode. In 2008, The notorious superstar led the legendary Clan Fracture through epic games still talked about, only to ragequit the internet shortly after the team’s break into division 1. With a music choice only appealing to a small fraction of his viewers, the movie stands as a testament to one of TF2’s most stubborn renegades – and, just how far the game has progressed in the past 2 years. Due to the lack of good streams, a movie known by many, seen by few can finally receive the glory it doesn’t deserve. -Released sometime 2008
Do you know of any hidden gems that have been long forgotten, or just never broke through? Send us your tips. Stay tuned tomorrow, for a look at some of the non-frag movies that deserve a second look!
