For my liking,the filming wasn't that impressive,really. Don't say that shit about 'Why don't you try and do better,you cunt' I have my views and likings and last year in Forward and this year in X the cinematography was excellent,the editing was really fresh in both films (Thank you,Schawgs in X).
Highlights in Red Tape:
-Sarah Burke's falls,pretty gruesome for a girl,but most of them had been seen before so it took the shock value away.
-Rinfret's walking in the desert,until he found the TV,was excellent and it had an unique feel to it,as if some amazing skiing was gonna be thrown down (which happened).
-Belans pipe run,how many smooth spins can you incorporate to a run. That pipe was loooooong.
-Okay,almost every athlete intro was good,with,again,unique feel. They were just let down by the skiing wich was good but not amazing.
-Gagnier. So hyped and albeit he is a better skier than me and he slides gnarly rails,to me it seems as his style is almsot unbearable to watch on rails. Reminds me of Crichton in Stereotype. Lanks,there are a lot of 270's on by almost every damn athlete in every movie this year and also people on this site,so son't lay it on me,they were sketchy,as were the backslides and crossslides and so on. If Gagnier would be stylier (to me,again) he would definately take the cake for being one of the best railsliders in the world. The huge rail at the end of his segment? Remember Liam Downey's huge rail at the end of HIS segment? Gag's could have been a little longer,but the style incorporated went to Liam.
-Shaky shots,too much fisheye shots,which were shaky..I don't know,this movie was so hyped by some guys in the MM cult that I had really good hopes for it. Yet it got trapped under the monster of a movie that is X. Random shots put together? Sure,Lanks,whatever you say. I especially like Henke's part which reminds me of Fight Club and the flying around the world.
-Problem's with the DVD. Dion's part started out great,too bad I can't see the most of it. I tried to rewind it from Bibby's part, but only got to see like 30 seconds of the end of his part.
That's about it. I give it 8-, with Forward and X
