"How can I say it? Well, it's simply the worst snowboard/ski film I've ever seen. And I have seen quite a few bombs along the way. And what makes it even worse than a typical bad snowboard movie is that it is a COLLECTION of bad snowboard/ski movies. Ok, let me explain.Something in the Air is actually a gathering of footages from other snowboard/ski films (mostly snowboard). Think of it as a kind of greatest hits video of filmmakers who didn't have any hits. What you get is footages from FLF films, some euro clips, and other shots from videos you've never heard of. FLF is known for making some of the chezziest snowboard movies on the market. Imagine a DVD where the best footages come from FLF. That's like a basketball team where the tallest player is Danny DeVito.What's so bad about the footages? To put it simply: the editing is poor, the music is poor, the angles that capture the riders are poor, and the terrain where the riders ride is poor. All the footages are constrained by tight budget and insufficient crew workers, and it shows. If you've never seen a snowboard film ever, this may be an adequate choice because seeing a pro rider charging the backcountry is no laughing matter. But make note there are better choices out there. Standard Films, Mack Dawg, and Whitey films are good starts."

"This video has some decent footage of old snowboarding circa 1994. This dvd is not for everyone. Not bad if you dont mind some skiing mixed with some dumb commentary.A good history lesson on what snowboards used to look like in the old days."
