viewtiful

adjective; blending
highly stylized and/or awesome; 'poetry in motion'. apparent meaning: Greater meaning than beautiful, highly stylized; awesome. The speaker was trying to convey how great his opponent's techniques and fighting moves were, and 'beautiful' would sound too soft or weak. So, he blended the words 'view' and 'beautiful' to add strength and meaning to what he was saying. His opponent had just beaten him, so he wanted to show his appreciation in a manner that was both masculine and reverent of the highly stylized and awesome techniques (like they were truly a sight to see)
 
Wow your fighting style is like poetry in motion; it is so viewtiful.
Etymology : blend 'view' (meaning to watch or look at) X 'beautiful' (meaning good-looking or pleasing to the sight)
