Those were the days
I got hooked on skateboarding before i’ve seen the Trashin’, but when i finally have seen the famous ‘Skate or DiE’ movie, it was love on first sight:) In my country they translated the movie title as ‘The hero of SkAteBoarDinG:)) ..I’ve watched it around 13 times, knew the dialogs by hart, used the pause button on VHS to learn the tricks, used the pause button to copy the skate , scull:), bones, dagger drawings and graffiti, did a spider net on my board (couple of years later it was the cheesiest skate drawing:)), and did a lot of personal skate logo designes, but thank God didn’t pierce my ear to wear a scull or a skateboard design earing on a small chain..
..Anyway i still consider myself a trasher:) This movie definitely represents my childhood and because of that i’m not capable of an objective valuation. It’s summer, skate, good times, friends, first love, rhcp, bonding movie.
Better than Gleaming the Cube!
I think the previous comment was crazy.
Gleaming the cube is a horrible skate movie.
I know the screenplay of Thrashin wasn’t any good but it was truer to skateboarding than Gleaming the Cube where a dude makes a skateboard out of steel plate! Thrashin had a ton of real skaters in it, they have the performance in the skateboarding night club by the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and lots of other cool tidbits.
The Daggers were obviously made up of Alva team skaters as one of Tony’s classic designs was the Alva Dagger.
I know Thrashin isn’t an Oscar nominee but I give them a lot more credit than Gleaming the Cube. Thrashin tried to be truer to their skateboarding roots. Gleaming was just a way to GLEEN money from the movie goers pockets.
As far as comparing it to Powell & Peralta Bone’s Brigade movies… those were skate videos and featured primarily skateboarding sequences. There weren’t a lot of story lines or acting. Even The Search for Animal Chin only has a limited amount of story and is entirely focused on the skateboarding.
