I finally got X in the mail the other day. Here's my somewhat detailed review.
-The Poor Boyz logo is a silver/clear this year.
-Oldschool Intro: Really cool but I think it would have been better if they went from State of Mind to 1242, instead of in reverse order.
-Hardcore Intro: Awesome, and it's always nice to hear some Tool.
Tony B-At first I was a bit skeptical when I heard that his track was Bright Eyes. But the seg is so damn sick, and the music goes really well with it. After watching it a few times I'd have to say this is my favorite segment in the movie.
Pete O-Another really great seg. The video game bit was really cool. Crazy tailgrabs and blindside switchups left right and center. And then there's the thong incident...
TJ-Crazycrazycrazy. Amazing Butters all over the place. This guy is nuts in the park.
Sage-Excellent seg. Sage is a great skier and definitely a big asset to this movie. Not knocking on this seg at all, but I'm willing to bet that his part in Soul Purpose will be better.
Kristi-Props on the intro spoof. I liked that. She really stepped it up again this year, especially on rails.
Grete-Holy shit! She is good. We'll see BIG things from her in the future. And that switch landing on the hip... oh so steezy.
-Vinnie D, Niklas, Szocs, and Treadway all had solid segments. Although, I would have liked to see more Treadway.
-Boyd is Boyd.
-DC is crazy as usual. It's a bummer that he lost that ski in the pipe at X.
Chris Benchetler-Short seg, but if you watch his original edit you'll see he's awesome. It's to bad he broke his femur. I think we'll see big things out of him next year.
Candide- Loco Loco Loco. What can I say? It's Candide.
Henrik Windstedt- Excellent all around seg, park, bc, everything is swedish smooth. I also really liked the editing.
Simon- Another awesome seg. Huge 180's all over the place.
Abma-Sweet. This seg and his one in Yearbook blew me away.
Jon-Dissapointing??? NO. So stylie I can't believe how consistently awesome it is. Lack of progression? Cmon people. What do you want, ultra smooth switch cork 1620's? Jon the robot skier...
Overall-This movie's greatest strength is that it is so consistently amazing. Every single part is awesome. The 45 minute running time feels like half an hour or less. The soundtrack got a lot of shit on here originaly, but I really liked it a lot. They must have spent a fortune on it though. Maybe that's why they had that sweet song for the last half of the credits. And, of course, UP1 was worth the cost of this movie alone. You have to see it.
If you can't tell already, I would highly recommend this movie.
But, you can always fall back on your degree in... Communications! Oh, dear Lord!
I know! Is phony major. Lubchenko learn nothing. Nothing!
Our greatest glory consists not in never falling. But in rising every time we fall.
