I saw Revolver, Eye Trip, and The Way I See It --- And here are my humble comclusions:
1. Revolver was the best. However, I did not feel completely stoked on each part of the movie. Sammy's opening segment was mind blowing, and he was in the audience, so that added to how money it was. Nevertheless, I wanted bounce after the 11th straight minute of the Dane Tudor section (no disrespect, great shredder, but that segment was 3x too long). Tim Durtschi's section was only a let down because he segment in EDIAS was the best I have ever seen, period. (And he got hurt). Julien Regnier stole the show for me. His POV footage in AK with old pal JP Auclair was inspiring. Good to see the older dudes steal a bit of the lime light back from the new dudes.
2. Eye Trip was by far the best for urban, without question. Phil Casabon is on another planet with his segments. Also, Mike Hornbeck has one of the best styles IMHO.
3. The Way I See It felt like every other MSP film ever made. The shots are great and locations are far off and remote, but I can't get around the fact that this year's movie starred the exact same group as last year and the year before, etc, etc. MSP has so much potential, but I think that is why I am more "moved" as a skier by the other two movies I saw from this year.
After watching all 3 of them, I was convinced that PBP had made the best film. When I buy it on DVD I will simply skip past Tudor's section so I stay stoked on the movie. **Disclaimer -- Dane Tudor is a much better skier than I am or ever will be. However, his sponsor Salomon paid for too much segment time - way too much!**
Haven't seen the movie, and I'm a big glitch fan, but you people need to learn what dubstep is, because glitch ain't dubstep.
I fookin love big mtn so if it's more of that and less park/urban i'm psyched. If that POV shot of Julien's that won best single shot at if3 is anything to go on, that AK seggy must be banger.
I'm gonna put this plain and simple (from my eyes).
Don't get me wrong I love powder segs, but this didn't really bring it up to par like my feelings for Everyday is a Saturday or Reasons, PBP I love you, and maybe this movie was supposed to be mostly powder and BC, either way I'll give it a solid 7. Only a few minor adjustments I would have changed had I been in the director's chair.
