Movie Reviews

Perhaps the best movie you have not seen
(5 out of 5 stars)

"With all of the movies about pop culture and experience that surfaced in the 1980s, (ie. Rad, Beat Street, etc) Thrashin' stands way above anything else. Let's face it the acting may lack in certain parts and you may notice a plot structure that is strikingly similar to A West Side Story, but there is no one who can thrash like Corey Webster (Josh Brolin). In this epic drama Corey takes on Hook and the Daggers a rival skate board gang who constantly harrases their clique (the ramp locals). Corey falls in love with Hook's sister Crissy(Pamela Gidley: I think that is her real name but who cares) and they have a tumoltuous relationship before reconciling after Corey wins the LA Massacre. However, the movie is great because it is set back when skateboarding was cool. Professional skaters sold clothes, but every grom didn't have to look the part. Boards were wide and neon colored while skaters wore vision streetwear and listened to heavy metal. I was 5 when this movie came out, but I was lucky enough to appreciate it after the fact. Now I can see how skating was less serious back then and how Skaters could be awesome just messing around. Thrashin will then not only give you insight on how uncool skating has become, but how much you suck at it and Corey does not."
Skate Punk 80's Cheese at it's finest!!!!!!!!!

"Ok, I read a few reviews on here and some people were dissin' this movie. But the fact of the matter is that this MOVIE IS RAD!!!! If you are an oldschool skate punk you know what I'm talking about. This movie captured a peice of skate history. The evil Daggers vs. The clean cut Ramp Locals! C'mon it dosen't get any better then that! They even have a crazy ditch skating joust scene that makes me laugh everytime I see it. Christian Hosoi, Eddie Reatuggi, Tony Alva... the list goes on and on. The director's commentary is the best thing I've ever heard!"

"This is by far the best skate movie ever.. EVER. I watched this movie so many times as a child I could remember ever part and pick ever mistake in it. I bought this DVD and couldnt be more happy with it. The special features could of had more. I wish they would release the sound track. I also own this on VHS and its been watched so much its warped in some areas. Everytime I watch this movie it takes me back to my early skate days. I mean damn who wasnt doing the downhill.. Check out this movie. GET TO IT"
Great 80's skate scenes....

"The movie is pretty cheesy. The production quality is low, the acting is almost laughable, and you'll hear some of the worst music ever used in a motion picture (and definitely not representative of skating in any era). However, here is why the movie gets 5 stars. There is so much skating that takes place that even if you hate the story you can appreciate the movie for the on board action. It really reflects the mid-80's skate scene by including pool, ramp, streetstyle, freestyle, and downhill. The actors are weak but the actual skating stunt doubles were the best of their time - Tony Hawk, Tony Alva, Per Welinder, Mike McGill, Steve Caballero, Christian Hosoi, Lester Kasai, Billy Ruff, Steve Steadham, Tony Magnussen, & Lance Mountain. Also some of the earliest Red Hot Chilli Peppers footage you'll probably ever find."
