"I have never seen such a spectatular review from for anything so I thought it would be better to just post it here, the reviewer says it better than I ever could.

The DC Video
A great start from the first indie UMD company, Silver Platter
by David Galindo

The Movie
Trust me when I say this UMD is quite amazing, with an excellent video & audio presentation with a fantastic lineup of bonus features to boot. Silver Platter has really set the standards with their first attempt at UMDs, and that's just incredible.

The DC Video is a skateboarding film showcasing a bunch of people I've never heard of doing some fantastic skateboarding around cities and parking lots. That's the summary. Take it or leave it folks...but as a person who has never skateboarded in his life, I can honestly say there's much to be enjoyed here.

In between all the skate action (of which there are some amazing tricks and nasty spills) there's a small segment on Dyrdek Security which features Christopher "Big Black" Boykin who basically gets paid for being an intimidating black man (and rightly so) who helps skaters with the police, as well as a quick segment on the pain and obstacles of skateboarding as a pro sport. One Canadian gets injured so bad that his work license visa is taken away, and he's forced to stay in Canada for a couple of months with virtually no other income available for him. Not only that, but it's his fifth shoulder surgery he's had in a YEAR thanks to his skateboard.

What drives a person to hop back onto the skateboard after so much pain and injury? It's not him I wonder about, but the rest of the people I saw in the film...after all the bad spills, what gets them back onto the board? The glory of it all? Certainly if I took a face spill on cement ground I'd think twice about trying the same trick again...but these people don't give it a moment's hesitation.

Score: 9 out of 10
The Video
The movie is in a 4:3 ratio, which means you can zoom in or fill the PSP screen if you so desire. Considering the source material, the DC Video can look amazing at times on the PSP. There's some washed out sunsets hitting the streets and suburbs that looked sharp and gorgeous. The black levels are spot on perfect. This movie looks better then it should, and that's just amazing.

Score: 9 out of 10

The Audio
Well, it seems Silver Platter did their homework before putting out these UMDs, because the volume is very, VERY loud. So loud that you will absolutely not need headphones unless you have to use them. This is probably the loudest I've heard the PSP sound, and that's really saying something. Good thing too, since there aren't any subtitles.

Score: 9.5 out of 10

Extras There are two versions of the DC video: the regular bare-bones version and the deluxe DVD. In a pretty stunning move, Silver Platter chose the deluxe DVD to bring over to the UMD, and we get nearly an hour of bonus features.

How about the real bonus stuff? Exclusive to the UMD...yes, that's right. Exclusive. To. The. UMD. I never thought that day would come...but anyways, the Great Wall Jump (4:00) shows Danny Way making the jump over the Great Wall of China on a sprained ankle. Unbelievable.

Oh, and these UMDs are region 0...meaning any PSP can play them, whether it be a Japanese PSP or American PSP. Woo!

Score: 9.5 out of 10

OMG-This has got to be the best skate movie ever.

"Danny Way is out of his mind. His mega ramp segments are way cooler then anything you have seen anyone try on the X-Games Big Air ramp (except for this years Backflip by Danny) and I still haven't made my way through all the extras and bonus footage they have. A must buy for any PSP owner."
Absolutely unbelievable

"This has got to be the sickest thing I have ever seen. The Danny Way Mega Ramp segments are ridiculous. For someone who likes a huge range of music the soundtrack rocks. Everything from Ted Nugent and Metallica to Gangstarr and Beenie Siegal. There are so many extras I haven't even watched them all yet. However, the "Hoops Commercial" is must watch for anyone with a PSP(it is a spoof on the Tiger Woods and Mike Vick Nike commercials) and the exclusive to PSP segment with Danny Way jumping the great wall of China speaks for itself. If you own a PSP you should buy this UMD immediately, you will not be disappointed."
Greatest Skate Video... Ever!

"This could very well be the best UMD you will ever see. The sound is amazing, as if I'm skating alongside these extremists and the video quality is better then most of the major studio UMD's. It's only a matter of time before the DC Video becomes a staple to your home video collection."
