12 Honkeys. The original VHS version; not the later DVD mutation.

Sorry Nick but Welcome was the worst wakeboarding flick of all time! Well, IMO!

Mayday is a classic. I actually watched it on the ipod on my way to work this morning. I really enjoyed the Butter Effect and Push Process as well.

Truth for sights and sounds.
Retrospect for respect.

Oh man... for me that's a VERY close between DRIVE and The Truth.... DRIVE gets a vote for innovation and pushing the envelope, and The Truth just has completely mind blowing camera angles and sounds.

Not the best movie ever made quality wise, but Incomplete is my all time favorite. Really showed the whole lifestyle of wakeboarding. Classic.

Push Process (great sounds)
Butter Effect (The FuelTv version - dont know why or how, but it is different AND BETTER)
Retrospect is killa

BennyBoy, I have that one on my desktop! Rich Dykmans has a mac page with that video clip and an older one that is pretty good too. Surprised we don't see more of Chris Dykmans, solid rider! I really like watching BG tweak out those grabs.

High wake drifters was great.

Gnarlist crash ever in that video. That guy lost a couple of feet of his guts to a ladder on a dock. What was that guy's name. He was a wakeboard/trick-skier, but could rip.

Relentless.. it was the first wake vid i ever owned and i would watch it like 3 times a day lol. The vid got me hooked for sure. Watsons melan 3s and 5s blew my mind

never seen 12 honkeys... what was bad about the dvd vs the VHS. i would have thought the dvd was merely a dvd version of the VHS like everything else?

sorry for the tangent

Retrospect. I believe it was Shaun Murray who said nobody needed to make another wakeboard movie after this... he was spot on.

If Retrospect had never been made: Natural Born Thrillaz and Transgression

no one ever mentions "six pack" or "my house" anymore- love those two movies. I think "six pack" or "mayday" are my favorites tho. Then I thought of "running with scissors" and "myside". there are so many cool movies from back in the day its crazy.
I just thought of "Tomorrow" that the Rook made-awesome...

Old     (lfadam)      Join Date: Nov 2008       02-13-2009, 8:53 PM Reply   
Shafted, Relentless, and Transgression are my favorites. Shafted for the riding/Parks double ups/best of everything, Relentless for best feel/most stoke and watson's section, and Transgression for most enthralling cinematically and Randall's section.

x2 on being pumped for the Parks documentary...

all the new videos have been bad to horrible except Push Process and only parts of Transgression

Natural Born Thrillaz
Hit it

truly the ONLY great wakeboard movies out there

everything now is just ok or blah, you end up fast fowarding half the movie to Randall, Benny or Danny's part if anything

I missed a lot of the really old school stuff, but "for what its worth" was my first wake film and still gets played! (I had to digitise the tape onto DVD because I was wearing it out!). From what I've seen the best are:

I have not caught most of the new films, so I am a bit biased towards the old school.
High Wake Drifters is still my all time favorite.
Retrospect is awesome too.
Fluid had a good soundtrack and some decent riding.

The first four FLF movies were head and shoulders above anything else for years. They pretty much set the bar that everyone else followed until they shat the bed with My House and Monkey on a String.

Also: Decline, Sfumato, Incomplete, and Invisible Cinema

What's different about the dvd version of 12 Honkeys compared to the VHS version? I really liked the VHS version, but I'm out off VHS-player, so thinking of the dvd version...

Like F4A and Retrospect...
Old     (kamighazi)      Join Date: Nov 2008       02-17-2009, 6:59 AM Reply   
the dvd version added a couple quick clips\sceens. To me, it threw the whole mood. Since i have had the VHS version burned in my memory.

Don't get me wrong it's mostly the same, and i still watch the hell out of the DVD. But you know how they had that goofy story line, they added more crap at the end.

The only cool party about the DVD is the tossed a pretty badass wake sake section at the end with Clint Tomkin as a bonus.
