- Life cycles. Wow!
I’m a big fan of bike movies, I always come back to Life Cycles at the low times when the bike’s a pain and riding a hassle.
The scene soundtracked by Explosions In The Sky (the song’s “The Birth And Death Of The Sky”) goosebumps me right up and it’s back on the bike for a refresher.
Treestump handplant, backflip crescendo. Happy days.
Only almost bettered by Adam Billinghurst’s section in 3 Minute Gap.Posted 5 years agosurroundedbyhillsSubscriber
Prefer New World Disorder 10 myself but own a copy of both and was thinking i should revisit them.

This is what I wanted to write but thought I’d be more diplomatic. It does seem to be a bit of a Marmite film and there’s plenty of threads on STW where it’s been discussed to death. If you like super slow-mo high def movie making it’s got a LOT to offer. If – like me – you think it’s an overused technique and should never be the backbone of any movie, it will irritate. As for the narrative, it’s mostly twaddle, but then aren’t they all?
+1 for Vast. I loved “Where the Trail Ends” too. If the riding is inspirational you can forgive a lot of the other guffPosted 5 years agorossi46Member
That is one of the best that ive seen- the photography is perfect. Lush. And the production is bang on. The riding is good but blends into the scenery nicely, just how it should be- it’s not just another “oooh look big air” or “look at me i’m fast i am” film.
It would be great when viewed in an Imax type cinema.
Well that’s my penny’s worth anyway 😀Posted 5 years ago
