I just got it,watched it with my friend,then watched it again with my another friend..oh my god. The intro...I think that it really sets the movie(last year I thought that nothing could beat the SM3 intro..) then DC...he's straight on amazing,Steele has a sick segment,I've always been fond of his spins with safetys..
Downey's part was unreal too,but damn,I was expecting a LITTLE better,because I've watched his vids in here sooo many times in awe.
Finn had a nice,strong(short) seggy,I still wonder what the hell happened to his intestines when he bailed,didn't look that bad at first..
The small section with lot of skiers and introduction of places where the filming took place was also ridicilous,oh yeah forgot the Phils,Larose killed it,Belan kept his style from past years,no dissapointment,but still room for improvement(when comparing to Liam,DC etc.)
Hibbert..oh no...is he really still alive?
I wasn't expecting much from Simon Dumont,Mr. Extreme-pant-midget,but I'm glad I didn't,because I went through the roof while watching his segment. He boosts so high,yet so smooth,and his fakie rodeos are to die for.
The credits were really cool too,with Reedy doing an FAKIE CORK 7 IN A QP! That was terrific.
The music in the movie was also off the hook,and it was almost all rap,so smooth and powerful,but a couple of rock songs in there that kept my vibe up.
Then the extras. I found the hidden stuff immediately 'cos I had read here how to find them. Damn. But anyways,I was hoping for interviews of the athletes,that's my only dissapointment. The Newfoundland section,INVIsbäel skis(Oh shit! Steele need's to focus,though ;D) The mine shaft,DC's TV coverage and Freedle Cody's small movie,that had some material from Forward.
Whew,that's a long review,but I hope you read it. This is how I feel about the movie,and it's nothing but SUNSHIIINE. I think it won't be possible to get tired of Forward. Berman,great job(you were the bum in the credits,right?) I think that Session 1242 could be able to pass it as the movie of the year,but only by an inch,and that inch probably comes from the length..
