Snowboarding Movies

Hey Guys, so I woke up this morning with a typical craving to snowboard however I am stuck in Orlando, FL and won't be doing any kind of boarding except on my carpet in my living room...so because I am stuck in this flat and humid land of Florida I tend to look for videos to watch and I came across this movie on Showtime called "White Air." Let me tell you, I was so excited to watch a snowboarding movie since I've never actually scene one before but I quickly lost my excitement as it was the biggest hunk of steamy $#*T of a film I've ever seen....bad acting, bad editing...it just sucked all around. Do you guys have any good snowboard films that you recommend particularly one you would give ? I need something to help with the pain of not being on the slopes till at least january.
Thanks!

If it's an actual movie you're looking for, and not just the standard shred flick, I suggest Out Cold. It's a classic as far as cinema films go. Otherwise, Shred and Snowvols have provided all you should need.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

uh ok well there is 'Shred'.

Good review to sum things up posted below (not by me), hehe:
If you absolutely LOVE snowboarding, and if you are under 15 years of age, and if your IQ is below triple digits, and if you have no appreciation of movie making as an art form, and if you think Tom Green is a MONSTER star, then you're going to love this movie.

Snowboarders save the day, by, what else, snowboarding. It's not "Monster a-Go Go" bad, (I don't think a movie THAT bad can ever be made again), but this movie is maximum horrible, with no redeeming social value at all.

Seriously, what are kids thinking? This can't even really be called a movie. It's more like, "Hey, Dude, I know a guy that has some great weed and $150,000, so we should make a movie!" That's just what it looks like too. Bad actors working with a bad script. Yeah, that's a great idea. I'm sure it sounded better while the bong was gurgling.

Comedy Central offered this up tonight. It's like Pauly Shore, minus all HIS incredible human insight. "Help me, Scooby!" Proof positive that money does not equal talent.

You'll lose more brain cells watching this than you would by smoking a few bowls of the good stuff and taking a header down the slopes.

Then there is a movie called Shredder. OH yes, yet another B rated snowboarding movie. Another accurate review posted below, again not by me and again lol:
Now I'm a huge fan of low-buck cheesy slashfests, but really, can we have some sort of oh, I dunno, a PLOT????? Wow. Teens decide to go "shredding" at an abandoned ski lodge (conveniently located miles from any help and decidedly spooky looking) where there was.........A MURDER years ago! And someone's looking for revenge on our young, goodlooking, rich and horny teenagers....can you FEEL the suspense? We have the requisite "party girl", the "snobby girl", the "good girl", the "handsome stranger guy", the "nice hero guy", the "dorky crazy guy" and the "quiet loner type", but that's not all! We have the "angry locals" and the "doofy sheriff", and of course our "masked killer" who uses a variety of instruments to do the deeds. I swear they had a copy of "The Idiot's Guide to making a Slasher Flick" on set at all times because this thing is sooooooo predictable. It's wretched in every way possible. It deserves the shredder. I intend to write the producers and ask for a refund of my rental fee, 'cause that's three bucks and I'll NEVER get the 90 minutes of my life I wasted by watching this back.


As far as actual documentaries about riding, then yea I dunno. I'm sure there are some good dvd's out there, the local ski shop always seems to be playing something pretty cool but I never learn what they are..

LOL Thanks sincraft...it is an actual movie with plot I was looking for but you all helped me realize that they are just simply not out there and if they are they are BAD! I have been hitting up the site you provided BA so I appreciate the plethora of shred flicks...I think what I have noticed is that movies that entail snowboarding,skateboarding,bmx,surfing... are typically only cool when you are a kid..then you grow up and become aware of what quality is and it ruins a great piece of trash film like WhiteAir was..probably would have been cool had I caught it 20 years ago.
