The music, the outdated camera effect, the people. Nostaligic as fuck, as a kid from 95', those were my first freestyle skiing prickles, those videos you would see on the tv screen in the upper corner in a canteen on the mountains.
That was the peak of ski movies IMO, so many good ones came from those couple years.
Jon Olsson in that neon pink suit might be the coolest shit in any ski movie ever. most the shots in TBC are better than the best single shots in most movies, nothing can match it. speaking of, dafuq happened to filming with 16mm? TBC is a perfect example of film>digital.
the go team song was perfect for his segment and mike wilson's segment was on point! only part of the video that sucked was tanners rant and giving the finger to the camera. its the only reason i cant show it at the ski shop..
Agree. Such a good movie I remember watching this over and over again. Such a primetime for ski movies. Was so excited every year since progression was happening at a crazy pace and seems to have slowed down.
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
just finished watching it again on my PS4 for like the 10th time and it still is just as good as the first time I watched it. It just makes you smile all the way through it, such an amazing movie. everything is right about it, the skiing, lifestyle shots, editing, music. the perfect ski movie. i was probably like 6 or 7 at the time this thing came out but recall being in complete awe seeing it played on the VCR tv in the ski shop at Pine Knob, MI.
honestly tanners segment might be my all-time favorite in this out of any other movie.
