I saw The Massive. It was cool but I didn't like the editing enough to buy it. I never got around to seeing Believe and I'd still like to.
you need help son. immediately.
to right the terrible wrong that was your post, you should acknowledge that not only does sage charge some of the gnarliest lines of the year, every year, but he also does it ridiculously smoothly and with abundant style. i daresay you would prefer him to be wearing a tall tee that is more akin to a dress than a shirt and a pair of crowbars?
But yeah, you're right, Tanner and Sammy rip big mtn far harder than seth and sage....
uh... backcountry and what seth and sage are doing are two completely different things. Tanner is NOT spinning off these same cliffs. I can guarentee that much. These cliffs are far more gnar.
That being said I agree with what someone else say further up. The nimbus crew is by far the best backcountry crew. Seth and his crew are the best big mountain. Tanner is starting to do some sick stuff, but Nimbus does it with unbelievable style and stoke and that makes it far better in my eyes.
I think you are deeply confused and/or have been smoking some seriously wierd shit that is making you see things. When have you seen Tanner, Sammy or anyone for that matter ski a 50 degree spine switch? And as the other guy pointed out, they are sure as fuck not spinning off the same cliffs as guys in the big league. If anybody's spinning off them its sage or dana...
sage is crazy good
I have to agree this was nothing to brag about for TGR. I have seen all of TGR's movies, even the jib and pipe movies, I have to say this one was pretty low for me. The soundtrack was terrible. Ofter watching Tangerine Dream, Anomaly, and Lost and Found I bought every song in those movies. On a lighter note, the cinematography (as usual) was breath taking. Cable, follow, helmet, and heli cams were spot on. The segment transition narations were awful, really detracted from the movie. Acompaning the narations was a splatter of paint with the skiiers name. I hated this, I liked the style used in the past with just a name bar at the bottom, somthing less subtle. Skiing was deffenately good. Unfortunately it was somwhat dry. There were somtimes when I was like "drop that cliff" and a skier would avoid it of drop off a lower point. Most cliff drops were straight (other that a few fronts and backs) in the past I have seen huge corks and spins. I expected more advanced stuff. Maybe a few urban run (I know that would be uncharacteristic for TGR) but it would have been a good change, maybe a few risky tree bonks, somthing along those lines.
If this is your first time watching a TGR flick, try Anomaly or Tangerine Dream first.
