Bob- awesome. I love yer bitterness and ability to be personally offended by a movie. I'm still gonna see it because I'm from the area and love the canyon. I even get to go again next fall. But Dave Mathews music in the film definitely makes me think twice. To be blunt, Mathews eats a big dick and I am offended, personally, by his "music". Why not some Jon Tesh or Yannni or something easier to ignore. I would like to see footage of the DMB tour bus dumping their toilet off Navajo Bridge.

I am deeply offended that you find Dave's music personally offensive. Where do you get off having personal opinions about music?

Phil, Are you crackin' wise?

M-train, enjoy(ha) if you know the canyon I cant wait to hear your reveiw.

I guess I am asking for too much, this film was alot like porn, great shots but absolutely no storyline and TOTALY fake. Every line was scripted, "hey indian girl swim in the stream with my daughter and pretend to be having a deep conversation and contemplate life"

OH, hey, look at me, pretending to tell my daughter a life story before we get on the train, "when I was your age, pause, repete, hold frame, new frame, BULLSHIT FUCKIN JUNK SHIT FUCKIN FAKE FUCK, I WILL KICK THE SHIT OUT OF THAT CLOWN. I think this world is dumming down so fast they thought it would get rave reviews. These people NEED A RAFT.............

Oh and ps, that clown didn't even row lava, watch it again, that is some other rapid, and my daughter, so proud, she rolled up in a class III wave train, wtf? I have better video of pool sessions, I guess the best part was when the kayaker got MUNCHED by the raft at the start. at least that happend,

Nah Bob, I'm crackin' dumb. Its monday morning and I'm jest comin out of my lurk status on this board. I'm disappointed to hear they put a dumb storyline in a movie that didn't need one. Though that Randaddy dude seems like a proud cynic and he liked it so I'm confused. Maybe it was the porn aspect you referred to. He did seem to focus on the 18 year old bathing beauties.

It is the conundrum between protecting a resource, and the publicity that often is "needed" to do so. People will protect that which they know, appreciate, or are inspired by. I have yet to see it, but expect it is geared toward the larger urban non-boating audience, to develop a level of public support for protecting it. Really, what did you expect from an IMax movie?

<<<every time you eat a steak a hippie's hackey sack goes in the gutter>>>

Ya know, I'm tryin to learn how you guys play the game here but I'm gettin more confused post by post. I wuz a hippie 40 years ago, but, but, I eat steak, and, I don't play hackey sack.

And where's the g-spot in Colorado anyway? Over by where Randaddy lives?

I'll get it figured out by the time the melt comes.

I haven't seen the film and don't really care. The Grand is awesome without a movie. And more importantly, Bob and Mtrain kick ass. I like Dave Matthews ok, but funny is just fuckin' funny. You guys rock the house! I was having an shitty day until I read you guys posts. Never apologize--take no prisoners! Go see the big ditch for yourself if you haven't.
