Burton’s “Standing Sideways” World Premiere at the Ogden Theater
"Standing Sideways was the best Burton movie since Chill." – Chris Owen
When we say the best Burton movie since Chill, we mean it. If you haven't heard of Chill then you need to break out the Goggle and do some serious research. We're talking OG status. Burton's break out movie from 1989 featuring the likes of Craig Kelly, Mike Jacoby, Keith "Duckboy" Wallace and Jeff Brushie. It was snowboarding's version of the Bones Brigade.
Fast forward to 2012 with an updated cast of the best riders in the business and you have one hell of a line up. Now there wasn't any racing in this movie but there was plenty of glorious pow shots and jump lines that sent chills down your back.
When asked about the best part of the movie, Kazu Kokubo jokingly replied, "me." He wasn't kidding. Opening up with the first segment was the Japanese wonder kid pinballing down a pow line that could simply be put as utterly amazing, all to the sounds of Boston.
What you need to realize is how fun this movie was. It simply made you want to go snowboarding. Filled with fun opening scenes for each riders part to great snowboarding from a cast of athletes that love to snowboard.
To see the crowd get amped watching their favorite riders drop some serious skills all while they were in the building creates quite the atmosphere. It was all fun and games and some serious drinking skills.
You could feel it in the air as the movie came to a close. The season was finally here.
