Is it just me or has every ski flick in the last 5 years (at least) been so fucking repetitive in terms of the athlete commentary? I realize that this conversation has come up many times before (I remember specifically after Revolver was released and everyone was bitching about it) but seriously, it has been getting to a ridiculous point.
What made me finally erupt in rant was while I was watching Sage's clip from their new flick "Way of Life"...There's Sage, again, talking about getting creative on terrain, wanting to surround himself with mountains for his entire life, and that's how we lives his life. We hear that shit in every single ski movie. Whether it be how they live their life, how fast park skiing is progressing, or some stupid/over done comedy theme (cough Sean Pettit/MSP humor cough), we need a fresh take on movies.
The only movies I have seen over the last couple of years that have steered away from this BS have been Stept and Field Productions. I'm sure there's other production companies out there that display either straight ski porn/banger flicks, or movies that just surround themselves with the vibe of good times.
It's funny because I was just thinking earlier today of how sick it would be for skiing to make it's own Art of Flight rendition. No, not Few Words (which was sick), but a lineup of 6-8 of the most badass skiers in the game and a movie that consists of straight banger shots and ridiculous cinematography. I would take that type of flick over what's going on in the ski movies right now anyday.
Don't get me wrong here, I still love watching them, and I have been enjoying movies over the last few years, but it's getting to a point where it's out of hand. We need to refresh this shit.
