Movie [Warren Miller No Turning Back]

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Anyone see the new Warren Miller movie.  Is it worth a one-way 1 hour drive for me ?

How much have you liked the last few WME movies?  I just saw No Turning Back tonight.  Worth it because the showing was a fundraiser for a local college ski team.  Plus my non-skiing husband was willing to go with me.  You would probably enjoy the segment where a 33yo is the youngest in the group.

My non-skiing husband liked it, as well as my high vert buddies. I preferred last year's, but this one was good.

I take it you missed this thread. http://www.epicski.com/t/129692/end-of-the-warren-miller-tradition/0_10

Just a follow up on the original thread that I created.  I was grumpy when created it.  I am learning to exercise more patience before I post.

Might as well post in the regional threads for people who ski in PA, including folks who live in the DC metro area.

Just saw it last Friday.  I enjoyed it.

post #8 of 21

Saw it this past Friday night at a grand old movie palace (The Castro) in San Francisco. Packed crowd, with the balcony open (a rarity)!

 

It was loud, it was long, it was fun, it was good. It did what it was designed to do: make me wanna ski!

 

Now if it would just #$^%W^ snow!!!

 

P.S. Kaylin Richardson, featured in the Norway segment, rips, and is seriously cute!  Thumbs Up

I saw it Saturday night.  Enjoyed it.  I liked that there was less extreme skiing and I also really liked the sound track.  Editors did a really nice job integrating music that made sense for the segment and cutting to it.  

 

The Norway girl above is cute but I found her annoying... I am just a cranky old crank I reckon.  My favorite segment was the one with Mike Hattrup and other "older" skiers in Chamonix and on the Haute Route which is on my bucket list.

I found the young woman in Montana (the "love interest" segment) more annoying -- the one with the uber-cutesy rabbit skin hat, and the extraordinarily banal commentary.  On the other hand, she skis a lot better than I do, so there.

 

My favorite segment was the old guys, too, but I'm an old guy.

Liked the old people the best as well.
post #12 of 21

Lotta old people around here. Guess I have to acknowledge ... I ... am ... one ... now ... too. Crap! How did that happen?

 

RE the soundtrack, I liked it too, and also thought it worked well, but noticed it incorporated a lot of stuff like Yes, Steve Miller Band, etc. Old(er) people music.   ;-)

 

I think WME has found a pretty good balance between embracing the new and still including some older things (and people). The crowd I saw it with was quite mixed, age wise, and as far as I could tell everyone had a pretty damn good time.

I agree - she was more annoying, but I enjoyed the whole driving around Montana segment.  Reminded me of our summer vacation where we did a lot of that.

That part was just odd. Is she a great skier? We didn't get to see much of that.. Was she just supposed to be eye candy, dressed like an 80 year old Alaskan man? 

 

I liked the Beaver Creek segment. The ski flying or whatever it's called, not so much. I don't want to see the stuff where people routinely die.

Isn't she a model turned free ride skier or something? Looked her up once.

Oh yeah, here's her website: http://sierraquitiquit.com

Wasn't she in the Valhalla movie last year? She did a lot of good skiing in that one. It's good to see more women in these films, but it would be nice if they didn't feel like they had to be cutesy too to justify it.

Hm., @sibhusky.  I just found her in the WME Snoworld.  Dubious name, Sierra Quitiquit.  If she came by it honestly, poor thing -- guaranteed to make a girl self-conscious for life.  

 

(In Germany, it's illegal to give a child a weird name.)

I don't think Sierra is a weird or uncomfortable name at all :/

post #19 of 21
I like the name Sierra. I'm sure I've come across several over the years. The last name I thought was real?

Q: Your last name is pretty unique. What is it?
A: I'm a quarter Filipino, my grandpa on my dad's side. When he came over, they changed it, Americanized it. I think it's supposed to be Kwitakwita. I love babinka, pork adobo. They're such cool people. Everybody is always trying to feed me. I love it.

She's claiming it is, anyway.
post #20 of 21
Yeah. I guess it's just that model thing, throwing me off.

When you attend a screening of "No Turning Back" you get a 120 page Warren Miller's SnoWorld magazine, which is the program guide for the film: features on skiers and places visited, etc. On the inside last page there's a touching piece written by Warren Miller on his long time associate/cameraman Don Brolin, who passed away last year.

 

I guess that signifies Warren Miller the man has some kind of relationship with Warren Miller Entertainment. I wonder if they'd ever get him back to do some new narration in future films? I like Moseley and think he does a very good job, and they have continued to incorporate snippets of Warren Miller's old narration in films over the years since he sold out, but it would be nice to hear the man himself back fresh again.
