"In the first winter to show the undeniable effects of global warming, Absinthe Films has explored the effects of a changing planet. For those who live to snowboard, these changes can be perceived as impossible challenges or creative opportunities. Absinthe reconfirms it's ability to find the best conditions when the rest have given up or resigned themselves to the park. Following fifteen individuals through their interpretation of this winter, Absinthe forges another unforgettable snowboard film with it's newest release. Optimistic? Starring: Marc Frank Montoya, Romain De Marchi, Danny Davis, Wolfgang Nyvelt, Justin Bennee, Marco Feichtner, Jules Reymond, Matt Beardmore, Nicolas Müller, Kurt Wastell, Hans Ahlund, Mikey LeBlanc, Nicolas Droz, Sylvain Bourbousson, Gigi Rüf, Phil Damianakes, and Erik Christensen."

"More pow, less park" 10/23/2010
Helpful Review?   (2) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Optimistic Snowboard DVD
  • Pros:  Great pow footage,

Experience:   I can only watch so much rail footage before I start to get REALLY bored - so this is the vid for me. There's heaps more pow/backcountry footage in this one, and that suits me just fine. Of particular note is the killer noboarding footage.

Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Optimistic Snowboard DVD
  • Pros:  significant, carry great weight, addicting to watch
  • Cons:  Nothing,

Experience:   I own this DVD and I also saw 2007 yeah, the winter wasn't really good, it hasn't snowed a lot and ... It's the worst winter ever. And the meaning : Are you optimistic? Global Warming? Signal to Global Warning. The film is also good maked. I always love the Flipside ( Making-Of ) Well, that's it. I hope I could help you !

"Oldie and a goodie" 6/7/2011
Helpful Review?   (1) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Optimistic Snowboard DVD
  • Pros:  Gr8 creativity, MFM in the bmx park is wicked,
  • Cons:  bit old but its still great,

Experience:   This is the best video I've seen in a few years! There are so many make shift snowboard filming crews now, that there are a lot of sub par movies on the market, but Optimistic is a def. buy. The filming is amazing, there is a great mix of rails/park, backcountry/Free riding, creativity with different terrain (Gigi Ruff in Canada at a BMX course). MFM has one of the best parts he has ever put together. His part has some great tricks and I've never laughed so hard during a snowboard video with his Spray Section. Gigi & Mueller put together great parts again, Mikey Leblanc shows he jibs better than you on a 6 foot toboggan. Plain and Simple, if you are a fan of good, progressive riding you are going to love this movie!!!

"Fun but uneven." 9/21/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Optimistic Snowboard DVD
  • Pros:  Wolle's part., Mikey Leblanc ripping on a toboggan. , Nico's part.
  • Cons:  Uneven (like most absinthe),

Experience:   I like Absinthe movies, but do find them a little overrated. They always seem absolutely killer in trailers when you take the best shots, but they are, IMO, edited in a way that makes them seem really uneven. Cinematography's great, riding's great, filming's great, but somehow the movies don't click for me. I loved parts of this movie (especially those listed above) but overall it felt like less than the sum of its parts.

"All time favorite snowboard flick? " 9/20/2011
Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Optimistic Snowboard DVD
  • Pros:  Great riders, Tons of steezy pow, Danny Davis
  • Cons:  Nothing,

Experience:   I love Absinithe films movies. They really are in their own element. They haven't switched over to the HD stuff and it shows. The film has so much more character than other vids of this same year. Danny Davis is the stand out in this film to me. It's great seeing him on huge powder kickers. Also, most of these films feel like a story somehow and this one is no exception.

Helpful Review?   (0) Yes    (0) No

  • Name: Optimistic Snowboard DVD
  • Pros:  Gigi Ruf, pow!!, good music
  • Cons:  none.,

Experience:   Gigi's part was so good. For a film that sets out to show the effects of global warming, they sure found a lot of fresh snow. The movie is pretty chill and very entertaining to watch. If your a street rat, you wont enjoy this as much. Can't beat donovan's season of the witch as a song either!
