No, Mr. Usher, I'm not using this JVC 1080p HD Video Camera to film the movie, I'm using it to film MY REACTION to the movie.
You see, this is my first time seeing it, which makes it the most important viewing. My reaction to the movie now, is my TRUE reaction. I may watch the movie many, many times in the future. When I buy it on DVD. From a store. In a legal manner. But those times won't be as real. I won't be responding directly to the film; I'll also be responding to my memory of the last time I saw the film.
That's why I need to get this video. I may grow bitter or jaded about the film in the future. Time may sour the film for me. Or conversely, I may look back on the film with a fondness that I didn't feel on first viewing. So, I'll need a reminder of just how I REALLY felt that day, today, when I first saw it.
And not some blurry, pixelated, shaky reminder either. I want to see my reaction in 1920 x 1080 resolution, with Advanced Image Stabilizer turned on for a smooth shot, and Super LoLux keeping everything clear in low light.
Oh, so why am I pointing it towards the screen? Well, would you believe that it has a mirrored reversible lens? No?
Hey look what's happening on screen! RUNRUNRUNRUNRUN!
