Perfect Late ’80s Skater film
Ok I know this film is old, but who cares? Let’s get that out of the way, it’s old it’s old it’s old. I don’t care if it’s old. I was 13 1/2 when this movie came out, and I know a lot of people even my age (27) would consider this a dated “old school” movie, but like I said, I don’t care, it’s still fun.
I was a middle school skater in the very late ’80s, and this film brings back great memories. Ok the fashions got old by like 1991, but again who cares? Forget the fashions and just concentrate on the skateboard stunts, they’ll blow you away. Legendary skater Tony Hawk is in this film, and everyone who was or is a skater knows how valuable Hawk was to skateboarding. These days I see a lot of teenagers skateboarding in parking lots and malls, it seems the trend has come back since being dormant since 1990. Even though the skating fad died down then, I was still skating as a teenager into around 1995. It was uncool to be a 19 or 20 year old skating back in the heyday of grunge, but once a skater, always a skater. Many times when I see these kids skating today, I want to haul my old 27 year old butt out there and show them how us 13 and 14 year olds did it back in 1989.
GLEAMING THE CUBE is an oddball mix of conspiracy thriller and skateboarding drama, with a youthful Christian Slater headlining the cast. It’s low enough budget to resemble an independent rather than studio picture, and it’s episodic at best. Slater is the usual disaffected youth – although rather more wholesome than we’ve seen of the star elsewhere – who spends plenty of time skateboarding until his adoptive brother dies, apparently by his own hand. A slow investigation follows, punctuated by a few skateboarding scenes which have been eclipsed in other movies, such as those put out by Jackie Chan (CITY HUNTER, for example). I find a little goes a long way when it comes to skateboarding.
