Looks like there are a few 2010 season films coming out soon, I'm sure most people have seen the trailers, am I in the minority here, or does anyone else end up being massively disappointed when you buy a film to then find out its 40mins of people just riding bikes to music?
Follow me was a huge disappointment, the footage was very well shot but it wasnt a film. The internet is full vids of people riding bikes with some crap thrash metal soundtrack mixed extra loud, its nothing new, shouldnt film makers be trying to tell a story?
There has been a couple of good mtb 'films' in my opinion, such as Freedom Riders, Klunkers and First, but they are well in the minority compared to the forgettable repetitive tat thats usually put out, downhill, some dirt jumping to fill the middle, then some off piste DH/FR to finish off.
I wish someone would make the effort to produce an intelligent documentary style film, much in the same vain as the first few minutes of the Peaty section of Seasons. I would like to be engaged when watching these films, or if thats too much to ask can we have some better music, so that at least its worth listening to whilst im off doing something else.
