Somehow I missed the recent (9/21/07 isn't exactly recent) release of AMV Hell 4. I can see my cable modem is going to be busy tonight (*ahem* after work of course).
If it's half as funny as the AMV H3, I'm gonna have a hard time breathing.
It has its moments, but it's not as funny as AMVh3:TM. Of course, that was one of the classic moments in AMVs... it'd be hard to even come close to it.
However, it IS funnier than AMVh:CE.

Hmm. Guess I'll find out this afternoon. I had Azureus running in the background last night when Neverwinter Nights coughed up a BSOD. I walked away to do something else while the bastard booted and never got back to it before going to bed.
Sometimes I'll just fire up AMV Hell 3 off google video for background noise at work. (Yes, I do where earbuds, otherwise people would look at me funn-ier)

Yeah, having now seen, I'd have to agree. It's just not up to the previous standard.
I think a large part of the problem is the audio choices made by most of the entrants.
AMVh 3 had a good mix of different audio types. There were snippets of commercials, funny sound clips, and well-known music. In the few cases where a more obscure or even original piece of audio was used, it was at least audible.
That's where AMVh 4 falls flat. People made a lot more use of modern and obscure music, most of which borders on white-noise with no clearly audible lyrics. That, and every third entry was some angst-piece based on Death Note.
