Anyways I rewatched clips (from my collection) of TAR 5, TAR 8, TAR 10, TAR 11, TAR 14, TAR 17, TAR 20, and TAR 23.
In terms of sound editing and Phil's spiels, I truly enjoyed the pre-TAR18 era (especially from TAR 14 to TAR 17). The music makes me excited and terrified and pumped at the same time. In today's era? I feel like I'm watching a soap opera. No more intense music? :|
Phil also used to narrate in his amazing "mysterious" voice, and in most tasks he described them which is actually good bcause we can learn a lot from that culture. His pre-TAR18 voice were so crisp and lovely that when he describes the tasks it makes it A LOT MORE INTERESTING. Now? He's annoyingly happy, which for me makes the tasks easier than expected.
For this all-star edition, I seriously do hope they return to what they have done before (especially during TAR14-17). With this cast and this boot order (yay for youtube for 3rd out hopefully lololol), having sounds and Phil's voice added makes me want to not watch it (but meh im still going to watch it for the sake of watching it
... Or maybe I'm too old for TAR already... and that's a problem because I'm only just 20 years old.
