Hello, here is an indepth review of X; the newest jib flick from PBP.
PBP intro color - Clear-ish
Old school intro - awesome seeing highlights throughtout the years, but a little on the short side...which is understandable
Hardcore intro - fantastic. gets you really amped for the film.
Anthony Boronowski - Overall good segment, a good opener. Techno-ish/hip hop music flows really well the flow of the segment. The booter toward the end of the seg was friggin' insane.
Peter Olenick - Opening is awesome, def. a highlight of the film. Good seg, strangely the music flows kinda well. insane rail skills.
TJ Shiller - Boy's got skills. The super high rail was crazy, like 20 ft tall rail. Good tricks and clean style.
Kristi Crash - Made me pissed, after her seg opening in 1242
Sage Cattabriga-Alosa - Chad's gap, deeeep pow, switch pow landings. great seg.
Kristi Leskinen/Grete Eliassen - Kristi has so much more style now, I didn't think I would see a female do a switch up on a rail for a while. Grete has such smooth style and is so progressive.
Vincent Dorion/Nikalas Karlstrom - In my mind, I think Vinnie could still compete and podium. He has all the skills of the younger kids, and that 540 he did on that step up was huge! Nikalas has mad style, another great Swedish product.
Boyd Easley - Awesome segment! you HAVE to watch it!
DC/CB4/Szocs/Treadway/Candide - Dave destroys an Aspen/Snowmass rail...does about everything you can do on it. Chris shows off his style. Szocs does some good big mtn. riding. Treadway takes a gnarly fall off a huge cliff. Candide is insanely good at rails, among other things. Too bad it is short. The uphill rail is tight!
Henrik Winstedt - One of the better segments in my mind. Music was alright, but the skiing was really solid. Henrik can ski ANYTHING and make it look so good. He does a crazy 7 with a leading tip mute grab!
Simon Dumont - Probably the best segment on X. He skis a lot more than just urban and pipe, get a lot of BC hits in too. His 'no motion' 180s are ungodly smooth. A must see over and over again.
Mark Abma - Mark continues to destroy everything just like he did in Yearbook. Mark throws some really stylie tricks with plenty of BC. Another highlight of X.
Jon Olsson - Another great segment. I like having Jon cap off a video. I like how AFI's song fits with the segment. Jon and Sage are by far the most well rounded skiers showcased in X. Jon's crazy tip grabs are so stylish, it's rediculous.
Credits/Bonus Features/UP1 - The bonus features and UP1 are hilarious. Kinda like 'Wanna be a Rockstar' in 1242. The Cribs revisted is awesome too.
Overall Grade = A. Great job johnny and company!
I'm still waiting for the one I'm waiting for
