It's a bit strange watching a film for the first time after a pile of Academy Awards have been thrust upon it. Not only are expectations raised but also, you tend to be a bit more critical of what you are seeing.

Surfing is not a popular genre in Hollywood as of late but that is what makes them intriguing nonetheless. Of course, with something somewhat different, I become a bit hesitant, especially when the title is stamped with "Based on a True Story". That phrase has become both a blessing and a curse on expectations for moviegoers.
Religious undertones are present in many films today but some are solely focused on that genre such as the Fireproof series and other titles such as Courageous have graced the Blu-ray format in the past few years.

When a pair of headphones arrives on my doorstep, I never know what I am in for. I don't want to taint the experience by reading other reviews, opinions or sometimes, even specs about the model. Sometimes you are let down at how shoddy some sets are or in this case, you are blown away by how awesome others can look and sound.
I have no qualms saying that I had lost all hope in the Bond series when I watched Pierce Brosnan windsail on a huge CG wave and villians with cheesy diamond faces on hovercrafts. Were the late 90s and early 2000 Bonds a lot of fun? Sure, if you were either incoherent and just want a dumb popcorn flick.
