Here are some opinions I left on www.animemusicvideos.org regarding several Noir AMVs. Usually I only discuss vids that I like. Some exclusions from this principle should be easily identifiable.
To make it possible for you to judge the judge I want to add that I am strongly influenced by the music of the AMV. If I don't like the music, the video stands a bad chance to get a good opinion. On the contrary I will forgive flaws in video quality more easily if I particularly like the song. All videos can be found on www.animemusicvideos.org
The links in the titles lead to short video-snippets, that should give you some impressions about the vids. Because of lacking space I reduced them as much as possible, so the quality is just bearable. But, as said, the snippets should give you an impression more about the song, than the video.
Since August 2007 there are links below the pictures to the full files via divshare. They lead to a converted flash version of the videos but the original files can also be downloaded there.
The original AMVs are usually in the quality of the series.

technical details :

Although I wanted to avoid proprietary code or plugins on this site, I have made a inline-preview of the videos via the flash-format. Now there is a small player window beside the bigger pictures (using the Flash Player), which is capable of displaying files in the flv-format (the player is just 3kb tiny,so it is loaded nearly instantly, but of course, the files themselves are about 1-2MB big, so it may take some time to load).
Because not installed, or not correctly working plug-ins can lead to a lot of hassle, up to a total "hang" of the browser, I put the flash videos into I-frames, that are only loaded after a click on the respective link. If that link leads to any kind of trouble, just use the ordinary download links instead, when you visit next time.
Newly added (at end of 2007) is a little web 2.0 feeling. You can change the size of the pictures and video-boxes via the two according sliders. The buttonsYM stand for Your resp. My comments and are responsible for blending in and out the according areas. This is achieved by the use of the libraries Prototype and Sriptaculous.
To all non-windows, non-IE, Opera or FF Users : I have no idea what will work for you and what not. Sorry for every trouble this site causes you. Suggestions or errors can be mailed to me or posted on the comments-page.

Both sliders react to click and pull, but pulling the videoslider can lead to heavy CPU-activity on slower machines, which can result in a little hang of the system. So better click on the videoslider.
