Now I gotta go watch "heavy metal" and "The Wall" again....... I think I need to find the meaning of life. 

 

 

Phil, do you recommend baking a cake while watching "heavy metal"?  What kind of cake?  

I'm a huge Pink Floyd fan, but can't say "The Wall" clarified ANYTHING for me.  Maybe if I watched it again while eating cake...

I hate it when stuff gets left behind with the hard page breaks every 30 posts, so here's a bump for this one...

Amazon >Netflix for ski movies,

 

Thanks again for the heads up!

 

And for convenience and stoke here are a couple of related threads...

I would suggest after you have your cake to go to the part where he is throwing the tv off the balcony and the frames start to spin.....  Very insightful indeed.....  back in the day, it was my favorite part. I does help to have it on a big screen though for full sensory overload.

Love that.

 

Just watched Chalet Girl last night, a UK movie made in 2011, based in St Anton.

 

Sort of like a modern version of that.  

 

Cute couples movie

*shudder*

 

Yes, US Netflix has it.     I do not recommend it.     Not without hard drinking game rules and at least two liters of vodka in the fridge, anyway.

Any of the Stumpy classics, but for me personally Groove:Requiem in the Key of Ski.

post #68 of 78

Wow, what a good topic, can't wait to search for a few of these on Netflix to get pumped for ski season.

 

My personal favorite is "Better off Dead" must have watched it a 1000 times on VHS

 

MSP's "Ski Movie" is also a classic new school movie, I don't know how many times I sat there hitting rewind to try and figure out how they did the tricks.

Netflix used to have several WM flicks, but no longer. They do have All.I.Can. which I love, but amazon, has a much better selection.

That being said, I'm finding Netflix, (on Xbox) hard to search what your looking for, so maybe there are some others.

Amazon, has Attack of La Niña, claim, and several others. Ordinary Skier is great, but mostly an autobiography of Seth M

Swift, silent and Deep.   A ski movie with an actual story.  Who the hell wouldn't want to join the Air Force and wear that patch.

Roku ($99) has a cool search feature that will search all of your streaming services at once.  I can search Amazon, Netflix, and Hulu in one shot to see who has a title.  Pretty nice.  Not sure it's worth the $99 if you don't have a Roku.  I bought a Roku 2 a few years ago for the bedroom and use a PS3 on the main TV.  Might pick up a Roku 3 for the main TV.  Agree that Amazon is better for skiing, though most aren't free with Prime.

Just finished watching Better Off Dead with @Chance of Snow.  It was the first time he had seen it.  I figured 11 was old enough.  He'll have to wait a couple more years for Hot Dog though!

In Deep gets the most views in my house.

Sinners, indeed. One of the purest.

 

Over ten years old now.

 

Short, not feature length.

 

Real. Most (or all) of the skiers are Nelson locals, not Ski Porn Gods.

 

Nine Winters Old, also by Bill Heath, is good, too.

Santa just found this at Costco for $38... for, um, our toddlers:

 

 

I figured it was more than worth it just for the Stump classics.
