We went to see it last night.
It was loud.
I agree that Fantasy Camp was a cool idea.
There was skiing, lots and lots of really good skiing. I think I must have reached my saturation point on people skiing steep flutes and spines, however. It really has started looking all the same to me.
It also distracted me that on a lot of the Alaska/Canada sequences, there would be more than one ski track visible on many of the descents. It seems to me that if you have a helicopter and unlimited mountains, your skiers could get a few more untracked faces. I get that all the cameras have to be set up and in place and whatnot, but I was just surprised that we saw more than one track on lots of those faces.
I was also surprised that out of all the fantastic women skiers in the world, there was only ONE female skier in the film.
I think that some (or even a lot) of the music was really good, but the sound system was cranked well beyond eleven and most of the bass notes just made the building shake and blurred the music. One of the most entertaining parts for me was watching two little girls dancing in the aisle two rows down. After awhile, I found them more fun to watch than the film.
I love going to these premiers, if nothing more than to see a bunch of friends that we typically run into more in the winter than the rest of the year. As far as the movie was concerned, though, I just wasn't that into it.
Apparently my old-fartedness is becoming more pronounced every year.
At least the one they have is really, really good and a very nice person to boot.
On another note...

If you don't fall asleep during the 15 minutes of timelapse they throw in before their art film starts. If you're not watching everything then you're missing out.
