Just picked up No Correct Way from the shop on Saturday, was looking for Double Decade so I could see some Kevin Jones killing it but this was one of the other options. After talking with the co workers they said this wasn’t a bad pick. After viewing it I would concur.
I still think Rome is struggling to figure out what their exact image is. You had punkers, metal heads, hippies, oldies, youngens, snowmies, etc. etc. While its great to have various images it sucks when it causes an identity crisis with the company.
This movie did have some banger parts but MFR stood out the most. She had a great mix of jibs, jumps, and pow slashing. I liked that her part started off with her winning rider of the year and the whole Rome team was there to support her.
I would say the worst slam of the whole movie does go to Bjorn Leines when he’s dropping a B.C jump in what looks like Utah and slams into a tree full force. The second worst slam would have to be Yan Dolfin they interview him after rag dolling and he seems a bit lost and doesn’t realize where he is.
LNP’s part is straight up skate style inspired and while it has some cool shit. Seeing him doing some of the same tricks on stuff I saw in These Days was lame. Why is it that film companies are just over lapping themselves with locations? The best part of LNP’s part has to be the Whistler house that was such a fun looking backyard jib park. But come on man do your pants have to be that tight? I was feeling pain looking at them.
European Eiki Helgason was super fun to watch. He did his best to deliver a solid part with doing double B.C jumps to slaying huge rails. He’s definitely a name to watch. The funniest part was Will Lavignes bad day. First he destroys his sled then he snaps his board in half while rag dolling, sometimes its just one of those days I guess.
The soundtrack for this movie was so weird though you had three chord punk going, classic rock, some rap, and god damn hippie music. Can’t a film just have a solid soundtrack these days? Instead of filling it with the weirdest crap they can find?
It had some good bonus’s including Camp of Champions where LNP, Jed Anderson, and MFR slay the park up on the glacier, it also highlights the back yard jib sessions which have some super unique set ups. I was jealous of these backyard jib parks these were better than some parks I’ve ridden in resorts. The slam section was pretty typical.
All in all it was a good purchase and I’m stoked to watch it. While I’m not digging the fact that a lot of film companies are just shooting on the same stuff this was better than These Days.
