Is there one for the Dogtown Z-boys movie yet?

Recommended Posts

Dogtown and Z-boys movie...

 

Unfortunately I'm not one of those VIP's at tradeshows with tickets to the premiere - but I saw the preview for this movie a couple of weeks ago and it looks GOOD.

If you used to skate, and stopped for one reason or another - THIS movie will get you out there again for sure.

 

Anyone else catch the movie or the preview?

Holy Muthafuckin schidt

 

I just got to witness a press screening of the Dogtown Documentary - goddamn that was AWESOME! Makes me very proud to be a skater for life. Jay Adams was the shit! And all that super8 footage is unbelievable. Super props to Vans for financing the film, Stacy Peralta for directing it they way it should be directed and edited... raw! Props to Sony for giving the world a chance to see this film, props to Sundance for recognizing this as the documentary of the year (definite academy award) - and prop to Sean Penn for narrating it and not getting paid.

I seriously recoomend that everybody see this movie when it comes out next month, skater or not. It is a lot of fun, very interesting, and an importent document of the birth of modern aggrsive skating.

Now excuse me while I bust some Bertlemans on this here flat bank.

TA is cool as fuck, I spent a weekend with him in 86 that it turned out was also with Clint Deeton (but I didn't figure that out until he brought Tim Payne to our ramp in 92 or so). Dogtown kids have always been my inspiration, even to the extent that the first tag style I ever pushed was a squared off vato style (ala the Fogtown ads)... Stacy is to cool for school...

yeah - they were both really fucking cool. Especially because they had been dong interviews all day, and I was last, and they talked to us the most.

I think this movie is gonna make 80's skating trendy as fuck. All these little Billabong-hoodie-wearing little 13 year olds will go see the movie and immedately start trying to buy all of Powell's old videos.

The movie's not really about skating in the 80's. It's the mid 70's when skateboarding was big, but no one had any style. Then along came the Zephyr team with a whole new approach to skating - surf style, banks, hills, burtleman turns, pools - but with a big emphasis on flow and style. It paved the way for skating as we know it from the 80's, 90's and now.
