Entertain The Elk : Your editing is getting scary good. Damn. Stop making me feel like a POS

Aaron D : Ah! This was so amazing! After a couple months of not seeing this movie this analysis reminded how fantastic it was! Well done!

Jack's Movie Reviews : Great discussion (as always!) I may have misinterpreted what you were saying around 4 minutes into the video about Baby holding onto the past. Were you suggesting that the reason he becomes involved with Debora is a longing for his mother? If so-SUPER interesting point I never even thought of!

Like Stories of Old : This was fantastic! Gave me some insights that I hadn't thought of (especially the Deb-Mom link). I'm aiming to release my video on Baby Driver this Friday :)

PauLtus B : No doubt the most under-discussed part of film is the visuals in general, it's a movie but there's so little talk about what makes it a movie.

Muaz Osman : This is deep! Really deep! You're amazing for noticing these subtle details

AsHalt : I think Baby is dressed in a way similar to Han Solo as Han is known as a scoundrel, smuggler or aka criminal, but when he's needed he can do the right thing, like in Empire in the Hoth base when Imperial attacked. Also a little reference to the Taoist/Buddhist philosophy of "The Yin and Yang". As you had said, Edgar Wright is a master in subtlety and details. Too bad he didn't managed to direct a Marvel film, hope Marvel would allow him to do at least one of the films...

PauLtus B : To be fair, most comedy directors ARE lazy compared to Edgar Wright.

Hunter C : How tf did I not notice this

Felice Landry : Edgar Wright tweeted about this

Aidan : I don't want to sound like that guy, but I don't think I've ever related more to a character in a movie than Baby.

Lucky Luke Productions : I was blown away from this video!!

UltimateKyuubiFox : “It ends up saving the film from having to resort to the techniques that a lot of other films use to justify a romance between two characters.” Like chemistry, character development and a sense of true understanding? For me, their romance is what made the movie fall apart. I just didn’t buy it. The writing didn’t support their relationship much at all, beyond him loving the idea of her. Which would’ve been fine if that was intentional. But the moment she decides to give up her normal life to join his life on the run, I just felt confused. It was so unearned, it felt like they barely even knew anything about each other. I knew barely anything about her, much less anything that would help her making that decision make sense. In my opinion, the relationship between him and his deaf father-figure should’ve been the emotional heart of the film, but instead it’s this love story that wound up feeling hollow. It took me out of it completely. This film is technically brilliant, but it’s storytelling is lacking real weight. The visuals and the editing were great, but they weren’t enough to replace essential character-building.

Frame by Frame : Hot Fuzz is the pinnacle of his achievement, but Baby Driver is also brilliant. Hot Fuzz gets points automatically just for being SO jam-packed with references, call-backs, and punchlines. Have you ever fired two guns while jumping in the air? No. *Have you ever fired one gun while jumping in the air?*

Phoebe Louise : Thanks for the costume design appreciation post, it's a massive job that's usually understated.

girls poop too : You're one smart film kid Keep it going Thanks

A C : Baby driver was my favorite movie this year. Everyone was so good but it also made realize how good of an actor Jamie foxx is. Also John Hamm is really hot.

griffin lamp : Was he slow?

Video Insights : Costume design is extremely important within film language. Costume is connected to character, some of the best iconography of a film is often costuming. Even identical uniform costumes are important, sometimes iconic (think of the Storm troopers from Star Wars). I really enjoy your focus on the intricate various aspects of film, keep up the amazing work. I always look forward to your essays. :-)

Panic Pillow : Saw this because Edgar Wright himself shared it on twitter! Loved the video and am a big fan of the movie myself. My girlfriend loves it the most of all of Wright's movies because she absolutely loved the thrilling ride, myself I think I would put shawn of the dead as my favourite, though I have not seen at world's end in years, so I might be in for a surprise when rewatching that one.

Jindorek : Excellent video. I never knew all these channels existed until Baby Driver came out. a happy discovery on my part. Thanks for being Awesome.

Suzie Walsh : Your style of commentary reminds me of nerdwriter

David Stewart : It's weird how the internet is becoming smarter than the Oscars.

Brendan Boyce : Oh my god that Drive soundtrack... So good.

Alex Beamer : Darling and Buddy --> D and B Debra and Baby--> D and B Any thoughts?

Harry E Allen : Really Interesting video! It's made me re-think how colour is used with in films :)!!!

StageLined : Bats is literary a red herring. Until Buddy is forced into that role.

Jesus Herrera Comedy : My personal Edgar Wright list: 1. Scott pilgrim vs the world 2. Hot Fuzz 3. Baby driver 4. At Worlds end(or Whatever it’s called) 5. Shawn of the Dead (Don’t care if you disagree)

Indian Tech Support Scammer : This is my first video I’ve seen of yours, and I’m already hooked. The way you edit your videos show how much time, effort, and passion you put into them. Bravo my man. 🥂

SageSledge : A fantastic analysis of a brilliant film, videos like this really make me appreciate all the meticulous work that goes into every facet of crafting a movie as detail-centric as this. Great work!

Jake Dorsett : I rarely comment on Youtube videos, but I had to break my silence to say this is an awesome video and I am shocked it doesn't have more views! Just subscribed, will be binging your channel later.

Nic Hume : Could not agree with you more! It wasn't until my second year studying film that I learnt the importance of production design/costumes in a film. Your video perfectly encapsulates whats it's all about, it goes largely unnoticed but subconsciously will create feelings and connections that other wise would not be as strong. Great video man!

Jack Renshaw : Baby Driver deserves at least a couple of nominations

ArpaN Dai : you need more subs

Steve Porter : Don't get me wrong I like Hot Fuzz, but for me it's easily Wrights weakest don't get why it so much love above Shaun of the dead, Scott Pilgrim or Baby Driver, which are all way better in my humble opinion

Mattie : While your analysis here is incredible and really opened my eyes up to the stylistic choices that were made, I have to compliment your editing especially. This video is so well put together and it made your points very easy to follow. You have some serious skill in both analysis and editing!

Sage Irvin : I love movie break-downs like this, I pick up on a lot of foreshadowing and characterizations in shows, but these kinds of videos just get into the plot deeper and pick out the symbols that the film creators use. Really cool video, I enjoyed it!

Jet Lonadow : At the end there’s no more black and he’s just dressed in white OOOO

Youssef : 1. Hot Fuzz 2. Shaun of the Dead 3. Scott Pilgrim 4. Baby Driver 5. The World's End The World's End and Baby Driver are still fantastic movies.

DEADPOOL : All these baby driver videos make me like the film more

Chris J : Man the editing of this video was phenomenal, especially the part with baby's glasses that you showed.

bran jord : AMAZING video.

Jesus Herrera Comedy : My personal Edgar Wright list: 1. Scott pilgrim vs the world 2. Hot Fuzz 3. Baby driver 4. At Worlds end(or Whatever it’s called) 5. Shawn of the Dead (Don’t care if you disagree)

Aaron Nichols : This was a great and fresh video essay. My top Edgar Wright films woulds would be: 1. Hot Fuzz 2. Scott Pilgrim Vs The World 3. Baby Driver 4. Shaun of The Dead (Was filmed next to my house) 5. The Worlds End

TraustiGeir : This really subtle and genius! The costumes went completely over my head.

Josie Cremona : loved the video, but i'm bummed that he didn't go into Buddy and Darling's costumes/colors. keep up the great work!

JaMesBurnt : 10/10! good work my man! You got a sub!

BRICK AZD : 22 years paid off...

Shane Fell : I also really liked the use of colour to communicate Baby's situation, particularly red and blue. When red shows up, things are going well for Baby and he's in control (like the Subaru at at the start of the film, a graffiti heart on the wall in the coffee shop scene changes from grey to red when Debora walks past and the red clothes/record in the laundromat scene) but when Blue shows up, something's going wrong (like the blue police lights, particularly Buddy's police car as well as the blue truck belonging to the 'hero' bystander in the second heist and the two blue cars that Baby uses in the third heist which goes balls up).

ThisIsNotReel : I can't get over the ridiculousness of the earbuds. It's the only thing I consider not good; It just looks silly and distracting.
