Reel Reviews – Riding Giants

Riding Giants

Reel Review #20: “Wow, 20 Reel Reviews! Here is a film I had not planned on doing, but after watching it I had to share it with you. I am not a surfer but Stacy Peralta, the director, does a fantastic job of making the world of big wave surfers accessible. Yes, they are crazy, but this entertaining and informative documentary allows you to come to appreciate the men and women who are pushing the envelope among these mountainous waves.

    Thanks for another great review Michael. I loved “Dogtown and Z-Boys” I’ve never really been into skateboarding but it is a fantastic film. I highly recommend it.

    Great movie. I went out and bought it yesterday after hearing your review. I like that you are mixing in some newer movies. Peralta really knows how to make a movie and get the audience attached to the characters/subjects.

    I’m a regular listener and love your podcasts, but is now the time to be talking about movies about big waves…?

    I too would never have watched this very compelling film if it hadn’t been for your mention… You should really get sponsorship from Netflix! Very nicely done movie.

    fantastic review of yet another movie i hadn’t seen. but i made sure to rent it and i gotta say that it was an awesome movie. i had to watch that monster wave of laird’s a few times. unbelievable. and stacy peralta did an excellent job! greg noll’s potty mouth was the best part though.
