Great movie, but if you are buying the blu ray, be aware that 40% of the movie is shot in standard definition, very disappointed as this is the only reason i bought it was for high definition action.
still the action is great.

We all know that the Miller flicks went downhill once he wasn't involved, but this time around that is completely false!

Johnny hits the narration spot on, the scenes highlight the fun, extreme, serious, and wacky sides of the spot right on, and the music... wow... the music... just wait until the closing montage.

Great flick!

Loved all the wonderful skiing - per Warren's typical, it's awesome. but I sure miss the Warren Miller narative that he used to do.

I have enjoyed watching Miller films for years. Going back to when he did the narration in person. I think the camera work is fantastic, the skiers are exceptional and the fact that there is some groomed skiing is super. The only drawback to his films of late is the music. I like hard driving rock, but there is a big difference between today's music and the Doobie Brothers or Bob Seger of yesteryear. Each to their own choosing. If you don't see this film this year, you'll be one year older when you do. Keep up the great entertainment Warren.

Playground is kind of a high water mark for Warren Miller documentaries. Several segments features crisp camera work that seems improved. All of the locations are amazing, and it's definitely something I plan to watch again. We have Dubai, Sweden, and Aspen among the many locations. But if you're looking for the maximum amount of actual skiing and snowboarding footage, most of his previous movies have more.

This documentary represents a significant departure from his successful formula. All of the same elements are here. We get great ski and snowboard footage collected by a common theme. We also have some comedic moments and wipe-out footage. And of course there are plenty of interviews with the athletes.

The difference really is mostly in the ratio of those elements. In the past the interview and introductory clips for each location were mostly quick segments that were lightly peppered into large amounts of actual riding footage featuring crazy vertical drops and long runs. Here, the interviews feel like they are much longer than in the past.

And the portions describing the various locations are also much longer, or at least they seem that way. That in and of itself could be forgiven. After all the actual theme of this video seems to center around premium locations, so describing them a little bit more is probably to be expected.

Interestingly enough, some of the best footage is the Utah clips. Utah has definitely been featured in previous Warren Miller videos, but here we get beautiful shots of tons of power flying up into the riders' faces. It's almost like a Utah tourism video.

My son is an avid snowboarder. He loved this DVD. He watches it a lot. He also loves the music he used.
