yea so i bought the bruce movie and all i can say it was awesome. the whole movie is just ridiculous. it gives you an in depth look at bruce and his outlook on surfing, and plus his whole style. i can say now that he's my favorite surfer. all the extra features were hilarious plus the soundtrack is out of this world. every song fit the context of every scne PERFECTLY. the best scenes were definately the intro part, the teahupo'o scene, who the hell is this guy?, france was good, eddie aukau scene, the barrel scene, and the ending. haha basically every scene! i liked the whole vide and the 16mm film. the wipeouts, runman's bruce movie, and all the other stuff is just awesome. i loved this movie so much.
also, i got a free dvd about the Globe WCT Fiji from transworld surf which was amazing as well. chris cote was hilarious and the whole vibe on the islands was pretty cool. it was tight to see all the best surfers in the world just chillin partyin and playin tennis
yea so the bruce movie was my first surf movie. i liked it so much i went out to get another surf movie. i didnt really know what to look for so i looked in my surf mag's for waht was good (i suscribe to surfing magazine and transworld surf) i saw lots of ads for the Vans Triple Crown of Surfing: the best of 2004. so i went out and bought it. what can i say, i despised it. it was sooooo bad compared to teh bruce movie. it had the most shitty punk rock music that was so repetative. it all sounded the same. Plus it was so unorganized i didnt know what event was what and who was surfing. basically is was just an hour long bit of frames of surfing with crappy music thrown in there with a few comments from sunny and bruce. Extra features sucked.
so when i think about it, a good surf movie cant just be some cool moves and some random music. You have to capture the whole vibe of surfing and what it's all about. or at least have some meaning to the film and not just some bull.
im looking at some new movies now. im definately considering buying Campaign 2 and Fair Bits. and maybe this new one called No one's Heroes or something because its about modern aerial surfing and that should be tight as hell.
so if you know of any movies worth seeing or you've seen the movies ive seen adn wanna talk about drop a post
