    Sat here stunned……………similar to other comments……….going to be charged $50 for BluRay, but all on back order [here in BC, Canada]…….then I see HD available on itunes.

    Bought it this afternoon…….and was blown away……

    Quite simply the best film I have seen……..the scale of the climbs and the lines were incredible………..and the thought that it was human powered was fantastic.

    To blow off the climb due to the rock falling….after all that effort……….worthy of applause for sure……

    Many thanks to TGR for such a splendid concept……

    And here’s to a great season

    Saw it saturday finally!

    The best movie experience i’ve had in a while… exactly what i was expecting with huge lines and high expectation after sitting out thru a storm. No jibs, no stupid stuff a la Jackass. Just well documented riding and mountaineering.

    Now if we could just get some snow over here!

    Read somewhere where Greg Stump and other, ummm, classic filmmakers aren’t huge fans of the banger shot after banger shot collage movie. He believes movies paint a portrait of the shot as well the approach and thoughts after riding a heavy line. Showing periphery events. Documenting the journey to said line. Running out of gas. Trading fresh fur for fuel. Spooning a Nevada hooker in the desert to keep warm. Whoops. I digress. Working on MY Movie there…

    Enjoyed Deeper as a movie because it introduced me to a cast of seemingly normal dudes who happen to be bat shit crazy. I keed. I know about the calculations necessary in a long approach because you told me about it. Xavier describing the unspoken connection after climbing the La Coline Grande. Life is a journey.
    Best TR ever.

    The stoke IS high.

    :headbang: after a long wait finally saw the film last night in nyc. nice to see JJ there to introduce the flick knowing there is no snow in sight and he could have probably be somewhere with snow worth shredding!! film did not disappoint, and enjoyed the documentary style, made you appreciate the passion and respect these riders have for the mountains…much better than watching the same park jump and jib over and over. over all a great night out in the city and $7 pbr tall boys :guinness: my only complaint, no snowboard giveaway in the raffle? was looking forward to coming home with a new solution or mountain twin 😆 hopefully we see some snow soon, tough to watch a film like that and not be able to go out and ride… cheers to a powder filled winter

    Hah! $7 for PBR tallboys? Only in NYC. 😆 😥

    Bummer they didn’t raffle a board – they gave a mtn twin away here in SLC.

    Very refreshing take on a snowboard film for sure. Its nice to see snowboarding done in mountains again rather than an abandoned train yard. The human powered aspect was truly awe inspiring.
    Travis Rice building a kicker in deep Alaska cracked me up.

    My only complaint is that I wish all of the Unplugged sections were included in the disc though.

    I got all the Unplugged sections on my disc. When did you order yours? I pre-ordered in September or so, got a two disc set.

    I thought the movie was completely epic, and really well done. The documentary style was really good, and the riding was so epic. I would have loved to see more documentary style even, and I wish the helmet cam shot hadn’t cut out right when JJ begins the repel in Chamonix.

    Another question I have is that I’d love to know what kind of boots and gear in general the riders were using. I’m really curious if anyone was using mountaineering boots, or hard shell AT boots.

    Completely awesome film though, and the stuff in Antarctica was killer!@

    I ordered the Blu-ray. It only has 9 of the unplugged sections. It’s missing the Utah section for example. I remember there were something like 13 on the website.

    The Utah section with Dirksen? or the Hypo coulior one? Come to think of it, I don’t have the hypo couloir either.

    As far as hard shell/mountaineering boots go, I don’t think anyone used them. You could as Tom Burt, he posts on here sometimes.

    Hehe. I remember seeing “First Descent” about 5 years ago (?) in a theater. It had Farmer, Perata, Rice, Terje, etc. and they were all up in Alaska. Travis and another young buck were building this big kicker, and I think it was Farmer, he looks into the camera and asks, “WTF? Why are we building a kicker in Alaska?” 😆 Think Hanna Teter lost ro sham beaux and hit the jump first. Things did not turn out well for her.

    Guess TR just loves to fly. (Have you all seen some of the pics of his upcoming flick, “Flight”? :shock:)

    Also, I didn’t have any of the Unplugged Section in my “DEEPER” DVD. Bummer! I heart Josh D.
