Best Action Sports Movie of 2008: That’s it That’s all

thats it thats allAs far as flicks went for the action sports industry in 2008, you would be hard-pressed to find one that brought the full package of goods the way That’s It, That’s All brought ‘em. The film is an instant epic. Taking it a step further, I would say Travice Rice and Curt Morgan set a new standard for judging not only snowboarding films, but films from all of the sports that make up the action sports industry…. It’s really that good.

To be clear, I can count the number of times that I’ve been snowboarding in my life on two hands. Surfing and Skiing are the loves of my life but their connection to snowboarding has always kept me with an eye on the sport. Whether you surf, skate, snowboard, ski, do all of the above or even none of the above, That’s It, That’s All sucks you in and blows your mind from start to finish.

One of the biggest challenges most action sports films face is finding the right balance of each aspect of their sport. In That’s It, That’s All, the crew at Brain Farm blended an absolutely perfect combination of everything from dropping peaks in Alaska, New Zealand, and Jackson Hole, with groundbreaking footage of Rice and the crew putting out their half-piping, backcountry launching, crazy Japan contest jumping skills on display for all to witness.

To go along with some of the most incredible riding I’ve ever viewed in any sport, the editing, filming, and overall production of That’s It, That’s All is nothing short of world class. The unique and fresh style of each segment and the smooth transitioning from shot to shot is some of the best work these eyes have ever come across.

And to top it off, the soundtrack for That’s It, That’s All is simply all-time. The sections serenaded by the sounds of MGMT, Soulsavers, and M83 were among those that stick out in my mind. However naming just a few doesn’t do the rest of the soundtrack justice. Each song selection flows smoothly with each segment.

In short, watching That’s It, That’s All will change your life and make you a better person. It really is that good, and it’s 5ones selection for Best Action Sports Movie of 2008 Ever! That’s it, That’s All, the new standard for films in the action sports world.

    I got this movie recently on iTunes it is freaking perfect. The cinematography, the riding and the editing is flawless. It is so good. All though I do need an additional newer movie that has a bunch of rails cause this is pretty much back country and kickers.
