I could go for a good/bad Warren Miller flick right about now.

Criticism of a work of art shouldn't be determined by your desire to socialize. Ski movies don't necessarily have to be lame in your words. There's an opportunity for good documentary material. Warren Miller doesn't explore that area at all. He tries to awe his viewers or amuse them in a rather silly way. Looking forward to his newest movie seems rather stupid as they are all the same.
