i recently saw timmy turners new film tsumami diaries- very good i should add - its not a surfing flick, but a compelling documentary about the releif effort.
i didn’t know sam george had a brother matt, who has a lot of spots in the film. interestingly he is just as much of an hammy, trial lawyer like, jim carrey-ish (but jim is funny), over zealous, cheese ball like his brother sam. to understand what im getting at, or if you want to puke, just remember ham george and stacey peralta hamming it up in the dogtown flick…always talking about the ‘quinessential antithesis’ of something or other in the ultra-most cartoon like animated manner. ugggg. those two buffoons are the only detractor to dogtown. the same could be said of matt to tsunami diaries.
maybe im wrong, over-critical, and they’re just passionate about surfing. but ii tend to think these guys are complete cornballs every time they’re in front of a camera. sam george has hacked up a couple surf vids. i think somebody should tell these guys.
comments please- will retract all statements and admit fault as an over-critical jerk upon receipt of substantial opposition to said commentary.
