Warning: Contains Spoilers!


Watching someone else's machinima is a humbling experience for two reasons: First, one suspects that one's initial negative reaction to the machinima of others is the same as that of others to one's own machinima.  Secondly, once you get past the initial negative reaction, you begin to realize that the machinima you are watching is much better than anything you could do yourself.


The first thing that impressed me was the excellent likenesses of the characters.  It's been a long time since I watched "The Sopranos" but Tony, Paulie, Silvio and many others were outstanding caricatures of the original character.  The music was excellent for mood setting.  The only  place where the music was intrusive was during early conversational scenes.  Loud music with lyrics over dialogue was a little confusing to this viewer, even though the dialogue was in the form of sub titles.  One exception to this was the sound of Dean Martin or Frank Sinatra singing softly in background.  It was a perfect fit along with the other instrumental Italian musical themes.  This bothered me less as I went along, I guess I got used to it.


The story develops slowly at first, then the tension begins to build.  (Spoiler Alert) I was shocked when A.J. appeared to be gunned down early on in the first episode, but it turned out he was not dead.  That was a relief.  You can't kill off a recurring character early in the series!


I have no problem with subtitles instead of voice acting, but it would have been better if the characters lips were moving when they were supposed to be speaking.   One trick I have tried is using my own voice to lip sync the characters, then shoot the film with the volume turned to zero.  The lips still move but my bad voice acting is not heard.  It appeared to me that in some scenes in episode 1, the lips were moving, but not as a rule.  I suppose the reason I like sub titles is because I have a hearing loss of about 30 decibels, so I appreciate them.  I watch a lot of foreign movies because they always have subtitles which in my opinion are better than closed captions because they usually include annoying descriptive information like (soft music playing in background...) ....but I digress.


A lot of awesome mods were used in the production of this epic, there was some very creative camera work and cuts,  and it makes me want to know how it was all put together.   I would certainly watch a video called "The Making of Animated Sopranos."


I was puzzled about the fact that the aspect ratio was out of whack.  The horizontal stretching makes the characters look fatter and the boobs look bigger, so perhaps that was intentional. Or could it have been an unintentional effect of Youtube's video processing software?  I remember when high definition TV first came out, I used to see that effect a lot on TV's in public places like airports.  It does not bother some people, I have noticed, but it does bother me.  When I was in college, one evening I went to see the re-release of Fantasia (original release: 1940) because I considered it a cultural event that I owed to myself (when I told my roommate where I was going he said, "Only wimps and little girls go to see that!").  When the movie started,  I was annoyed that they had chosen to horizontally stretch the old academy format (1.375:1) image to fill the newer Cinemascope screens (2.66:1).


Worthy of note: The closing theme of Episode 4 gave me chills.  It was Baba O'Riley, by The Who.  It always gives me chills


I found the ending both satisfying and moving.  This series is worth watching.

"Walt fuckin Whitman ova here"  - Tony Soprano




Thank you for watching


Was originally shot in 2014


This past Xmas I got the itch to fix dialog (after watching the sopranos again for the 20th time), add sound effects for everything, change the music, and record each episode in fraps (60gig files each), then take into sony vegas 16 and crop/colorize and upload them into 1 gig files 


I spent a few weeks posting on Voice Actor sites but for the Sopranos the voices have to match so I realized better not to wait "if it happens it happens"


Great idea on moving the lips with muted dialog...if ever get another itch to fix them I'll do that next time.


Currently re-mastering my LAWMAN 1-4 series...and I'll use your lip trick.

"I exist as I am.  That is enough." -- Walt fuckin' Whitman


Too bad about Dr. Amalfi.  She was set up, in my opinion.  And those FBI dudes remind me of what Mickey Herskowitz said of a former edition of the Houston Astros.  "They play just good enough to lose."
