that movie had awful music in it. a couple songs were good but seems like some were put there to be annoying on purpose. that retarded gringo sonf during cale zimas part made me want to shut the shit off, and blauvelt/muellers part was ruined because of the jamacian stoner music set to awesome powder riding. that was a shame.

the jamaican song had willie nelson in it.. haha.. it grew on me :)

my 1st impression of the flick was WTF! the music sucks.. then by the 3rd veiwing it grew on me.. still not the best soundtrack or even CLOSE! but it became bearable. i actually didn;t think it was Absynthes best work or close either. that grew on me too. it was the opening segment wasn't epic like previous movies. i was expecting that..
after veiwing like 10 new movies this yr. NOWHERE was the best IMO.. i srsly can't stand to watch more than 5 to 10 minutes of rails in a flick..

Now/Here was such a letdown for me especially after Neverland last year which I really liked.

From what I've seen so far this year, here are my favs:

Think Thank's "Right Brain Left Brain" - Blair Habenicht's part. I can watch someone ripping fresh stuff and tree riding all day long and he kills it. The song is great too.


Isenseven - Don't Panic. The camera work in this one is just flat out beautiful. Check out the landscape in the Spitsbergen part for some jaw dropping scenery. The Spring Time part is incredible too. Perfectly matched music and visuals. The thing I really like about Don't Panic is it feels like you are just watching a bunch of regular guys having fun who also happen to be great riders. It doesn't seem to have the same bullshit posturing that so many vids do.

ive loved isenseven's last 3 movies. they do a fantastic job. i agree with nowhere being a huge let down. they need audio of the riding and, hey, heres an idea, try some slow mo or syncing up the music to the action. their stuff is always amazing riders edited worth crap. it feels like im watching raw footage on mute while the radio is on.

They definitely need to hire one shot production... or the dudes from knifeshow
haha.. thanks dude.. :)

onen thing i have always done is edit to music.. i try and convey a feel of the music to the riding.. thats a strong point in my edit style. now if i could just get some good riders on film.. haha :p but, even with crappy riding, or OK riding if edited right with the music and breaks. it can still be appealing to a lot of people.. least thats what i'm hoping for in what i do.. and its strictly hobby for me.. i got a day job.
