Suggested Screenshots

Baxter: This movie is full of entertaining TASing that is not present in the 0 or 120 star runs that allow BLJs. There is nothing wrong with choosing restrictions and goals that may appear slightly arbitrary, in order to show off an aspect of the game that is underrepresented in the published TASes or significantly different in some other way. This movie does this well, and is therefore accepted to be published alongside the 0 and 120 star runs.

How exactly this run should be labeled, or what restrictions would be superior is up for debate, but it does not negate the above judgement.

Aktan: Finally processing this...
