IN MOTION, featuring Canadian boy-wonder Mark McMorris and “friends” is the first movie the Regina native has ever been a part of. I went into the “WORLD PREMIERE” on October 13, 2015 in Vancouver BC, with an open mind and armed with the Yobeat snapchat password, and dare I say, I was a little bit excited to watch the film. But out of nowhere the infamous Craig McMorris was quick to kill my boner with a speech from hell that wasted no time informing the crowd how great his little bro is.
“I don’t think you understand, my brother has won gold medals!” exclaimed Craig to the relatively mellow Canadian crowd.
The hype is real!
As you may have guessed, the movie started with a cliché-as-shit intro featuring a Red Bull-enriched, teary-eyed McMorris exclaiming, “ I just want to do something different, man. blah blah blah.”
Honestly the rest of the movie was a dramatic blur of heli rides and first world problems, but here’s what I took away: Mark has one incredible method, Nicolas Muller killed shit, and the ender was Mark battling a back double rodeo 1260 or something on the enormous piece of art in Solden that Red Bull surely paid a pretty penny for. Above all, the movie was lacking the dreadful Quadruple cork that is so sought after by Mark’s contemporaries. When confronted on this issue via snapchat interview, McMorris simply explained, “No quad zone, sorey!”
I guess we forgive you, Mark.
Highlight of the night: Watching some blonde headed somebody get his debit card declined after ordering four Jager bombs!
