Like the legend of the Phoenix

All ends with beginnings

What keeps the planet spinning

The force of love beginning

Oh we've come too far

To give up who we are

So let's raise the bar

And our cups to the stars


I'm up all night to the sun

He's up all night to get some

I'm up all night for good fun

He's up all night to get lucky

We're up all night to the sun

We're up all night to get some

We're up all night for good fun

We're up all night to get lucky [x5]

The present has no ribbon

Your gift keeps on giving

What is this I'm feelin'

If you wanna leave I'm ready, oh

Cause we've come too far

To give up who we are

So let's raise the bar

And our cups to the stars


Oh we've come too far [x3]

Oh we've come too far to give up

Who we are

Who we are

This amazingly captured the mix of cheesiness and love that makes GQ possibly the best Star Trek movie ever.

WOW. This is beautiful! It's so earnest and moving and captures all the sincerity of the film - I'm really impressed, because this is such a wacky comedy film, but you've drawn out all of the heart. <3 Also, I love how you've framed it, with the Omega 13 explosion, giving Jason time to look back over how far they've all come as he changes the past.

I enjoyed this. I like how it starts with them all dying, goes back through all the things that happened and ends with them saving the day.

From: [personal profile] verushka70
God, this is so great. Captures the characters, their unwilling quest, their fear, them coming together as the characters they play in order to do what needs to be done. This is great!

AAAAAAH? I *love* that you've taken this whacky space comedy and turned it into something dramatic and earnest. And I *love* that you used a dramatic and earnest remix of a fun song for it. A TON of kudos to you!

Oh, that was just delightful! There was a (not overwhelming) thread of gravitas through that whole movie, and you've managed to show that in the video *perfectly*, without getting maudlin or sappy.

Just excellent!

Goodness, I really like what you did with that. There really is a nightmarish, heartbreaking center to the film's premise, and you did a beautiful job reframing it.

Wonderful. I love the whole thing: how you begin/frame the vid, the "we've come too far/ to give up who we are" throughline, the spinning luck, all the lyric match-ups, music, everything. Unexpected, touching, and easily captivating for five minutes. And the title! Perfect. <3

That was gorgeous! I didn't expect to see such a poignant and earnest vid for this wonderful movie, but I'm so glad you went that way with it. I love the framing device of the Omega 13, especially. Great job :D

First of all, I apologise for replying to this beautiful gift so late!

This is perfection, dear mysterious vidder! Thank you so much!! You brought out so beautifully the themes of friendship, courage, and hope, showing that this film is much more than just a campy spectacle. Also, you used my favourite version of "Get Lucky". <3

This is so lovely and moving, and as others have said, I love how you've zeroed in on the genuine pathos under all the wackiness. Stellar work!
