still the action is great.
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.
still the action is great.
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.Read more ›
