Submission Text Full Submission Page
This is an improvement by 66 frames over the published movie. I'll just keep the submission text as simple and short as the one of the currently published movie, since all improvements are minor optimizations.
Here are the timesaves:

Samsara: I'm an expert on rescuing princesses without dying, I feel like I should be judging this one.
Samsara: Due to my expertise, I can confirm that this movie adequately rescues a princess without dying. Accepting as an improvement to the published run. Because of significant entertainment dropoff, this is going to Vault.
fsvgm777: Processing.

Thanks Spikestuff for filling in our real names :) I didn't know whether I should add them, because they weren't fully attached in the previous submission.

Please remove me from this and the other Princess Rescue submission, my contribution is insignificant, no need for name clutter.

Thanks, that's very logical, should have thought of it when submitting actually. Just did it.

Encode: Link to video The movie wasn't really that entertaining in my opinion. Was neat in several places but overall just seemed like a meh Super Mario Bros. run. While the movie seems reasonable within itself (reasonable/vaultable goal, improvement of published movie), I do wonder if this branch (along with the other published branch) should still retain the Moons rating. Let me explain, the original deathless movie currently has an average entertaining rating of 7, solid for Moons. However, the next movie had a significant drop to 5.2, which is arguably Vault level ratings. All the improvements in this movie (as the author states) are just minor optimizations, and in my opinion, don't significantly impact the entertainment rating compared to the current published movie. Considering all this, should this movie inherit Moons or should it be downgraded to Vault (along with the currently published movie)?

I don't see how it would be considered Moons either, I would personally drop this down too the vault.
I like to comment on submissions and look around the site. You have probably seen me before (if you have been around for a while) either on the site, Discord, or any other social media. I recently took up making temporary encodes for new submissions. Also, I never forget to greet Tompa wherever I find him!

Almost as annoying to see and hear as the any% branch, barring the death abuse. Voting No.
Warning: When making decisions, I try to collect as much data as possible before actually deciding. I try to abstract away and see the principles behind real world events and people's opinions. I try to generalize them and turn into something clear and reusable. I hate depending on unpredictable and having to make lottery guesses. Any problem can be solved by systems thinking and acting. If TASing is meta-play, TASVideos Movie Rules are meta-meta-play!
