So I stopped off at Milosport today and they had just gotten Think/Thanks newest release RightBrain/LeftBrain in so I bought a copy. I like the ThinkThank crew alot so I was pretty stoked to get my hands on the new flick. This years effort is being billed as a “double feature” but with a bit of a twist. It kind of hard to really explain so peep this link of Burtner explaining the concept here. So as Burtner says there are two DvD’s in the case the “Left” and “Right” movie. Each rider has only one part in the total production but each rider also appears on both discs. Their part is on one disc and they have guest shots in other riders parts on the other disc. Each disc runs about 25 minutes which is not including the extras located on the Left Disc. Heres a list of which riders appear on which disc and its in no particular order…
Right Disc… Left Disc…
Ok now for the good stuff… Nick Visconti opens Right Disc with a great part a really great part in fact. Hes riding for Arbor now but half his part is filmed on an Omatic, Todd you let a good one go when you lost Nick. After that you just start to get inundated in typical fast clip ThinkThank style. Rider after rider and shot after shot of original jib action as well as great all mountain fury. On Right Disc stand out parts come from Visconti as previously mentioned as well as Burtner, new comer Brewster, and Hironaka. Ender for Right Disc goes to Scotty Stevens who returns to ThinkThank after last years Transworld video. Its a stunning 5 minute display from Scotty that wont disappoint any of his fans.
Left Disc opener goes to Jess Kimura and to be honest it was one of my favorite parts on the initial viewing. Jess goes the hell off and straight kills it. Other great parts on Left side come from Bogart, Genovese, Habenicht, and Larson who does quite a few high risk factor rails and ledges. Closing out Left Side is Jason Robinson a Lib Am who has a great solid part.
Left Disc also contains Six Extras. The first is a 3:40 second slam reel of which Jess Kimura occupies the first 2:30. I really cant stress how good her part is and how much she laid it on the line this season. She takes some nasty falls that would keep most of us down but gets right back up to get the shots. The other extras include the Mervin Down Town Throw Down from Seattle, an all girl 3-4 minute clip, a skate edit, another shred edit, and finally an edit of filmer shredding/ high jinks.
The wrap up.. All in all a great effort again this season from ThinkThank. On one viewing initial favorite parts are Visconti, Burtner, Stevens and Kimura. All others are still solid and will most likely be better appreciated after I can soak them in with multiple viewings which is fairly typical I guess.
Heres the original teaser and stop by the ThinkThank site for more goodies!
