2011 DVD

Posted by desflurane on December 9, 2010

I bought the Throttle Entertainment DVD of this year’s rally and, of course, watched it as soon as it hit my mailbox! Once again Jeff Pakosta has made a very fine movie out of what must appear like chaos in the Carpathian mountains.

The DVD is really fun to watch, it got my heart pounding! And there is a very nice tribute to the late Glenn Tyson including a few interview clips with him. It was a very nice touch, I thought.

Surprisingly though, a lot of the film looks very familiar if you have watched the videos published on the Romaniacs website. Many of the same clips appear again – though in more complete form.

I am slightly more afraid of the prologue now, however! The film doesn’t show anybody getting really messed up, but a LOT of guys are going right over the bars on various obstacles or sliding out wildly over snot-slick logs. It looks pretty hairball! Eric Gibson (#328) assured me that the prologue ends up being not too big of a deal – you just get out there and do it, next thing you know, you are done… But still, it looks like there is ample opportunity to really take yourself out on some of that crap! I suppose the rain was really a game changer this year. It apparently wasn’t too tough when it was dry.
