Under Review: The Dinosaurs Will Die Team VideoBy Nick Lipton • Nov 2nd, 2012 • Category: Features, Latest, Reviews
Who slips a dollar under their DVD wrapper? Dinosaurs Will Die, that’s who. The dirtbag rats of snowboarding finally got it together enough to make a video, and guess what? It rules. The music makes parents angry, the riding gets you pumped and the editing is fast and ferocious. The DWD Team Vid is this year’s must own film, and that’s not just the dollar talking.
This one starts like an atom bomb. An explosion of color, noise, music and frantic snowboarding. In this instant you realize everyone on the team sent it a little harder for DWD. Even the credits are fun to watch. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.
Chris Larson. Everyone’s favorite juvenile delinquent is all grown up and taking the first part. He does a lot of tricks, and they are all hard, plus as the song picks up so does his part. It’s basically an onslaught of reasons to believe in this team.
Lucas Ovellette can method and backflip off stuff. You know what else, he can jump off mountains and do legit nollie frontboards. This kid has a good ride ahead of him.
Ben “Mother Fucking” Bogart is officially pro and rockin’ his own pro model. So he had to bring it, and in his classic bravado laden, hip hop heavy style he brought double corks, mini shred and everything in between.
The RATS section showcases the talent of all the dudes DWD is floating boards to. It almost makes you want to move to Tahoe to live with 30 dudes in a shitty house so you can snowboard all day everyday.
Brendon Hupp clearly gets picked on a lot, but he also punches people in the face and snowboards really well. If you liked Love/Hate, you’re going to like this part.
Matt Heneghan and Garrett Swenson share a part. It’s got rowdy little kids, it’s got rails, it’s got hangout footage, it’s got mean ass dogs, it’s got falls, it’s got Satan, it’s got bangers. What else could you want?
Chris Brewster is down for old ladies, shitty junk food, beer and really easy tricks on really difficult things. To see Brewster be way better at snowboarding then last year, or to just watch him eat cigarettes, you’re going to have to pick up a copy of this video.
You can thank Sean Genovese for this video, company and ridiculous part. Dude rides really fast, goes really big where most people wouldn’t go at all, is for sure the best on the team and now one of my favorites from the era. If you’re still not sure about buying this movie take this into consideration, this part will be talked about for years and years to come.
