The new 'Warren Miller' movie* is coming...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Almost $30 for a ticket in my part of town, it does include a ski pass to the local hill but with many restrictions.

 

Going to pass on this one.

 

 

 

*Although he pretty much had nothing to do with it.

I caught "Ticket To Ride" in San Francisco last night - thought it was pretty good. I appreciate a bit of narrative and some humor sprinkled in amongst all the amazing skiing shots. Not your Daddy's WM, but I think they're doing a good job of keeping some of the original vibe along that line while updating it for modern tastes (music and quick edits). Lots of powder, steeps and park, but sadly no bumps.  :-(

 

Beautifully filmed, and very loud.  My girlfriend thought the bass was a little too much - I kinda liked it.  ;-)

 

There were a number of older clips sprinkled throughout, including a few seconds of this classic...

Miss those. We go next week, I think it's $15, for the ski team.

I suspect you will appreciate the very nice segment on Montana skiing featuring some bad-ass gals and a little Scot Schmidt too!  Thumbs Up

I think it's like 5 - 8 minutes? For the whole state? Don't blink.

Been watching the 2008-pres WM flicks on starz on demand. (DirecTV)Not sure how long they've been there but I just saw em the other day!

I went last night in Fort Collins.  The music was loud (which I like) and so was the crowd - a bit rowdy (everybody restless to get out there and ski).  The scenery was really spectacular.  I enjoyed seeing the footage of Greenland, Iceland, and Norway.  The part about climbing and skiing the Eiger was intense.  

 

All in all a good time at a good film with a good crowd.

Took my 7 y/o daughter to the WME film last night. She enjoyed it. Could make a few "film critic" type comments, but hey, we had a good time and that's what matters.

I went Friday. The best WME of the last few years, and I'm not saying that because Whitefish is in it. :-)

They broke up the bits so that it wasn't long segments of the same type of skiing, again and again. The music was not irritating, I barely noticed it. There were some small funny "Warren" clips thrown in, could have spead them out a bit and not had them be such obvious afterthoughts, maybe. And, best of all, more, much more, women skiing the tough stuff throughout the whole movie. The last few years I've been chomping for the movie to just finish after the intermission. This year, it was still moving and even my non-skiing husband enjoyed it, which is really saying something.

^ good to hear. I watch them often on Encore and Stars network. Typically too much talk and have those cheesy setups and too little skiing.  "like theres no tomorrow" was actually pretty good. I  have zero interest in park or urban stuff so its nice to DVR them and FF through all those scenes.  

 

I don't think there were any good flicks this season.

I only like so much urban stuff as well and they had an ENTIRE MOVIE preceding this that was only urban stuff. For aficionados, "Act Natural", by Toy Soldier. 45 endless minutes. Yeah, they're good at what they do. But, enough.

I saw Ticket to Ride last Sunday and enjoyed it.  In the segment with Seth Wescott and Rob Kingwill snowboarding in Valdez they don't say why, but it's mentioned that Seth had to leave early and therefore lucky Rob got a helicopter all to himself the rest of the week.  Afterwards I was reading the magazine they give you at the screening.  Turns out Wescott broke his tibia and tore his ACL crashing in a crevasse while on this shoot and that's why he left early.  Such is the life of an extreme snowrider. :eek
