Forty-Nine Degrees: A Surfer's Tale

Tabata Productions

Western Vancouver is one of the most beautiful surfing locales in the world. This documentary will tell you everything you need to know about Canada's intriguing surf culture and the unique personalities who have shaped Canadian surfing. There are some amazing and talented people up there with stories to tell. This is more than just a surf video. It's a journey into a world on the fringe of familiarity, but still comfortable in its obscurity. Forty-Nine Degrees is a must-see. Featuring the Bruhwiler and the families, this film will make you believe in the power of family and surfing.–C.C.

I could go on and on about how good this game is–but I'm just going to tell you what you probably want to know. The cars drive exactly how a car should–if you've ever played a bad driving game, then you know what I'm talking about. The cities of Tokyo, Paris, and L.A. are replicated with amazing detail. There're hidden jumps everywhere, and racing is highly addictive. Every race you win, you get the loser's ride, which is faster every time. And for the first time you can challenge people online. If you're still not sure if you should buy this game, it's by Rockstar, so that should squash any doubts you may have.–Dylan Raasch
