    Life Cycles

    The movie. I just did a search and couldn't find much if any posts since November 2010.

    I just watched it. Had no idea what to expect other than a lot of video imagery.

    I was blown away.

    Any love for Life Cycles???

    Cinematography kills anything ever done in mountain biking and most other sports.


    Everything else I kind of giggled at.

    Yeah, cinematography and editing were mindblowing. There wasn't a bad shot or bad transition in the whole movie. Loved the music.

    I actually loved the narration. BUT, I am old and sentimental.

    I liked it, more unique shots and some great concepts in the cinematography than anything else out there by a long shot..

    Pretty much the reason I'm going to end up buying a Blu-Ray player. Cinematography is on a whole 'nother level.

    If anyone didn't like it and wants to sell their DVD, I'll take it.

    I watched a borrowed copy of the DVD on a smallish TV and was blown away. Gonna watch it on the 'big screen' tonight or tomorrow AND then order the BLU RAY.

    Worth every penny on blu-ray...especially when shown on the 104" screen in the man cave.

    Love it! Aside from the mindblowing cinematography, I have been a Mitchell Scott fan for many years (Powder and Bike contributor), so I was pretty stoked on the narration (he scripted it).
    I'm so hardcore, I'm gnarcore.

    I don't think the script was some of Mitchell's best work. The scripting was actually a part of Lifecycles that I didn't like.

    This is some good funny from Mitchell.

    ^ Agreed, he is much better at prose than narration/dialogue.

    I agree with you completely. Other than that absolutely incredible footage and editing. Props to the guys behind it!

    Loved it. Bought it on iTunes to watch on my fucking epic 8 inch notebook screen.

    Cinematography is amazing obviously. The narration is good but the script is a little cheesy at times. Good message though.

    Weren't any of you guys ever annoyed of not seeing landings? Agree that the movie is on another level, but the narration needed some work. Maybe I should watch it again and quit bitching.
    a positive attitude will not solve all of your problems, but it may annoy enough people to make it worth the effort

    I tend to buy movies and rarely watch them again; can I just check a blu ray copy out from somebody's library for a week.
