"The name Warren Miller is a household name for ski enthusiasts. He's built a great reputation for his documentaries of filiming skiers. This DVD collection shows skiing places all over the world and great footages of a few going down extreme slopes. What bored me most of the time is how monotonous the footages were no matter what country they take you, the shots are always at close-up range. It doesn't have that feel that you're watching that person ski down that Italian Alps or down that Scottish glens or even down our local slopes in Squaw Valley - all footages in different countries were filmed at close-up range so after a while it will get monotonous. It does get boring after 1 hour and then there's two more DVD's to go. This DVD collection is great for parties where you put it on a big screen in mute with loud music blasting from your home stereo and people having loud conversations and just happening to see footages of skiers while talking. Good collection to keep though."
