This is almost eerily perfect...I never noticed so many of these parallels--their mothers giving birth, their fathers hating them, both of them with Smokey and the island and destiny, both of them with Widmore, both of them moving the island and ending up back on the mainland. WOW. You chose the absolute perfect clips, and the lyric interpretation was so uncannily perfect--"change your name" when you showed the passports, for example. Just amazing how perfectly you know these two characters and their connections!

On a technical note, excellent beat use and great pacing--I got chills during the rise in the song when you showed both men breaking down, I loved the faster pace. I like that your coloring isn't distracting. The voiceovers were a little low, wish they had been louder, but they were perfectly chosen.

Love that you ended on a positive note with their reunion in the sideways. It could have been a depressing vid but wasn't because of that...the song was perfect, the clip choice was beyond perfect. GREAT vid! Make more Lost vids! It's so great seeing fresh ones, and it's obvious you know the show very well and are a great vidder. I hope to see more from you soon!

Thanks for the feedback. This was the first vid I used audio from the show, so I wasn't sure whether to mess with the levels. heh, I didn't realize how depressing it was, those characters had really depressing lives though.

WOW! That was really well done! I've never seen such a comprehensive tribute to Locke and Ben, and you did a fantastic job with it. As Scarlett pointed out, so many awesome parallels and connections. Great job!

That was fab! I didn't realise there were so many parallels between these two characters! Really interesting!

I love some good parallels and here is so many that I didn't ever notice before. I love the song too, I felt like a lot of the lyrics were fitting perfectly. I love the intensity that was growing throughout this whole video and the last scene broke my heart again. Great great job. You should totally upload more videos!

Awesome vid. I have been wanting to watch this for ages. Loved the part at 0:48 with teen Locke to adult Locke saying "don't tell me what I can't do" "Dance with the devil in beautiful buildings" with the smoke monster surrounding Ben was great lyric use. 3:00 I liked the parallel between young Ben seeing young Widmore to Ben seeing Widmore. Loved the way you mixed the scenes of them waking in Tunisia. I really liked the lyric "fight your way out of this one" with Ben killing Locke mixed with their struggles. This was really well done. Great job showing the similarities between these two.
