i'll agree that some of the segments in save were a bit of a let-down compared to the same riders' segments in skimatic (houle and gagnier, for example - sick segments, but not ground-breaking). however, i thought overall the movie was amazing. the alaska segment had a great "friends roadtripping" vibe and a nice variety of powder, jumps, urban, etc. the big mountain segment (can't remember the riders' names - 1 skier, 1 boarder - off the top of my head) was super sick without dragging on forever like big mountain segments often do (coughRAGEcough). i even liked the random brief fishing interlude - reminded me of a ski movie adaptation of the life aquatic, and anything that reminds of the life aquatic in any way is awesome. jf cusson had a short but sweet comeback segment. and the movie wasn't too long - some people complain about this, but i can't stand when ski movies feel like they should've ended a half hour ago. i'd rather be left wanting more than bored to death.
and finally, frank raymond. really, it shouldn't be necessary to say any more than that, but for some reason the man is criminally underrated and unknown. absolutely the most ridiculous urban segment ever, after a very impressive park/powder segment. i'm a big ahmet fan (bristol mountain represent), and maybe the fact that his sick urban segment was in what i thought to be a TERRIBLE movie taints my judgment, but frank's segments were just....i can't put it into words. it has to be seen to be believed.
Me = want to be there
Any idea as to when the showing will actually start/how late it will run?
