        Overall

        Overall a good movie if you like backcountry booters. Not really my taste but still a great movie.


        Design

        Pretty plain cover - some empty chair lift during a snow storm.
        The backs got a description and some assorted pictures.

        Value

        I paid $42 dollars for it, more then i wanted to pay.
        It came with a CD, a Dakine and a Line sticker and the DVD has quite a bit of bonus features. I got what i paid for i guess.

        Quality

        I think the product was made as well as a DVD and CD can be made. I've only had it for about two weeks and the DVD has been in my DVD player for the whole time so it hasen't had the chance to get scratched. I'm sure it will be as durable as a DVD can be.

        Content

        Well, the first time i saw this movie it was at a movie premier. And i guess i was anticipating something that would blow my skirt up because of how people on here were talking about. I really didn't think it was the "best movie ever made" but i decided to buy it anyway. Don't get me wrong, this IS a good movie, it's just not the type of skiing i'm the most interested in. But the more i watch it, the more it grows on me.
        If you like watching big mountain lines or urban rails, it would be advised to stay away from this movie. But if you like watching some epic powder skiing, huge backcountry jibs, beautiful butters, switch landings and a little bit of park mixed in, this might be the right choice for you.
        Something i really didn't like about this video was the little clips of snowboarding. For example, during the first skiing scene it's getting everybody hyped with some thumping music - then all of a sudden it shows a snowboarding jumping through some trees and falling. Kind of a buzz kill.

        This movie also came with a CD of the whole movie's soundtrack. I think that's pretty sweet, it has some really good songs but is kind of the opposite of the movie. For the movie i had to watch the movie more to get to like it, with the CD the more i listen to it the more i don't like it. But i listened to it a hell of a lot so that might say something.

        Overall

        Decent movie, solid DVD package. Some of the shots and sessions are fabulous to watch, but the movie as a whole wasn't mind blowing, but, like I said, decent.

        Design

        Um

        Value

        Pretty decent value. I don't know how often I could watch this movie compared to, say, TBC, but it is still enjoyable, especially for those times that you want to chill and watch some (mostly) money skiing. The extras certainly make me salivate at times, which is great.

        Quality

        I've watched Idea numerous times, during a premiere locally, at home, and at ski shows (where I got to watch the movie muted, really observing the skiing and content by itself).

        The DVD was great. Loaded with many good extras that just make you want to ski (Pollard's casual helmet cam fotage just takes you back away from the hype scene, which is swell). And of course the movie was decent too (get into that in more detail).

        Content

        Idea was a pretty good movie. I know it has received a lot of attention in the forums, both negative and positive. I can see both sides, since I'm in favor of the movie, but I still have my quirks with it.

        First of all, a lot of the content was solid. Some of the shots were very well done, crisp, and beautiful (last shot in particular). But overall, it did feel like there was something lacking. The first time watching I really felt this way, but that feeling has subsided a bit in subsequent viewings. Like I mentioned, some of the shots were great, but there was a certain monotony that prevailed. Maybe I've become so used to movies with such an eclectic mix of tricks and styles, that overall, it seemed a tad mundane (a tad, mind you).

        I should say flat out the snowboarding segment didn't do it for me. These guys are certainly pretty decent at it, but... I don't know. It detracted from the movie quite a bit, and least in my mind. It's not like I have a disregard for boarders; I ride with and respect a ton of them. It's just the incorporation didn't seem to fit.

        As for the soundtrack, I enjoyed it. I think it was appropriate for the movie, and blended well, making for pretty good viewing.

        What it boils down to is that perhaps the movie was hyped to be something that it didn't seem to be (I didn't really succumb to the hype). That is not to say I didn't enjoy it, but rather, by the end, I was a bit underwhelmed.

        Overall

        This is simply a piece of art. Iberg created one of the best ski movies ever. Every shot ozzes progression. Buy this movie and you will not be disappointed.

        Design

        It came with two CDs, one was the soundtrack. Great songs to ski to in powder or just a mellow day. Sick addition to the movie.

        Value

        Sick. To be honest I thought that the movie felt a little short, but the amount of extras made up for it. This is a movie to be remembered so its a good value.
        Oh it also came with a couple stickers.

        Quality

        Its a dvd.

        Content

        Just wow. This is the best ski movie ever made (imo). Pep, Maher, and Pollard. Three of the best and most progressive skiers. The whole movie focuses on these three although there are guest appearances by lots others. I thought I might get tired of just three skiers the whole movie but I must say that I didn't even want to watch the guest appearances, the main three are just that fun to watch.
        Huge Rockered skis, no poles, park, big mountain, powder...what else could you want?! The movie flows very well and the music was all made just for it. All the music is smooth (reggae, dancehall, jazzish stuff) and complements the film nicely. You really feel like you are watching a work of art.
        One of my favorite chapters was watching these guys snowboard. Who knew these guys could slay on one board?!
        Anyway I just got finished watching this movie and I must say that these guys aimed for making a revolutionary ski film, filled with progression and creativity. They definitely did it.
