What's the point of movie creator?

What is the point of movie creator if I can't edit or create my own movie? All it does is select it's genre (weekly,monthly,yearly ect) and compose it's own movie. To me it's a useless app either that or I'm a simpleton and haven't explored it enough to figure it out properly.

Google has a similar feature that create small stories, it is indeed a simple video, but its just to remind you on what you did on certain week/month, etc.

Re: What's the point of movie creator?

@Antman87 I felt exactly the same after I got my Z3 Compact.... but soon after, in February, I made a trip to the beach with my wife, son and his godfather, and after I took many pictures and videos for the day (including pool pictures, timeshift videos, etc) the app created an incredible mix with awesome music and almost perfect selection of my media... I was shock, so I fiddled with the app a little bit more and replace a couple of pics with others better related and the results were simply great...

 

After that I realize that the app has encouraged me to share those moments with friends and family (I upload them to facebook) since it is extremely simple to use and at the same time the videos are short (around 30 secs) so you will not bore everyone with 5 minutes clips...

 

On the other hand I do wish it included better editing tools or at least integrated the ones found on the device (photo/movie editor from Album) so we could have more control of what and how it's being displayed...

 

Anyway I will not post publically my family videos, but I recently made one of me parasailing with my Z3 Compact tied to my wrist! and that one I uploaded to YouTube... Take a look... Parasailing with my Xperia Z3 Compact

 

Here are a couple of screenshots from the original video...
