Author's comments and explanations:
Super Metroid...adored by many and arguably the greatest game made for the SNES. Follow bounty hunter Samus Aran on an inter-planet journey to destroy the space pirate colony on Zebes!

What makes this movie special? Well, I only get hit 4 times. Once by the giant Metroid in Tourian (Required) and three times by the Mother brain eye laser (required). I take no hits other than this, including Ceres. Here, i'll define a hit to you:

Hit - To have a special animation played signifying you have been damaged in some form. This includes the falling debris in Ceres, and anything else that makes the hurt animation play the the hurt sound play, but your health retains it's previous amount.

I defeat every boss skillfully and as quickly as I can. I move from place to place quickly, pull off some (in my opinion) cool moves, and overall try to make the movie quick while slow at the same time, if that makes sense.

I ended with 87%. I estimate 94% to be possible. Why did I not go out for the final 7%? I don't know. I could have, but I didn't want to bog the movie down with a collection. When I did go out of my way for items, I tried to make it interesting.

Also a note: Since the Draygon quickkill takes damage from you, it was not used.

I finished with a time of 1:10 (In game units). I hope you enjoy it.

Bisqwit: What makes this movie better than Frenom's 51:52 Super Metroid movie? Also, 1731 rerecords for a 101 minute movie is suspiciously low for a game where accuracy in jumping is important.
Bisqwit: Ok, you didn't answer yet. Anyway, I'm rejecting your movie because: This movie is lazy, it fails to have clear goals (and to accomplish them), it isn't cool and it breaks the rules.
