Editorial Reviews

Skateland, set against the landscape of upstart malls, Jordache jeans and iconic hang outs, is as much a story about embracing who you are as it is about moving on. The personal drama marks the poignant transition of a group of high school friends into adulthood. Set in the early 1980s, in small town Texas, it is genuine, touching and candid snapshot of the lives of a close-knit group of friends who are confronted with the realities of the precarious world around them. The film revolves around a charismatic young skating rink manager named Ritchie Wheeler (Shiloh Fernandez), brother and sister Brent and Michelle Burkham (Heath Freeman, Ashley Greene) and the legendary, wise-cracking, Kenny Crawford (Taylor Handley) as their dreams and carefree lives start to fade into an uncertain future.

first there was american graffiti, then there was dazed and confused. i always wondered "why not the 80s, i mean i grew up in the 80s and it was great, they should recreate it <and not in a slapstick comedy but a way that is real>, then i was standing at the redbox and there it was Skateland.
the only thing that didnt make much sense to me is a couple of time line things. this apears to be set in the 80s and its set around the death of the roller rink (which i remember happening for the most part <for the most part because my city still has them but they got run down and most of them shut down) in about 92 but they were really booming in the mid eighties, and in Skateland people are leaving the rinks and going to the discos. discos were big in the 70s. so skateland seems to have its timeline quite a bit screwed up.
i loved the "sonic" reference because so often they use mom and pop burger drive ins like how dazed and confused had top knotch. where not everyone relates to texas drive ins, i know around here we had sonic and bumpers (still do).
skateland was like opeing a time capsule. sure they had better haircuts though they did sport those god aweful mustaches.
all in all this is a movie i will definatly wear out in my dvd player.

This movie will take you back to the 80's it has a great cast great sound track and a cool story after all it was the 80's If you remember the arcade generation with rolling skating then this movie is for you. This movie is a reminder of what it was like being a teenager in the 80's A++++

Skateland was a very gratifying movie to watch. Just out of high school, the guy (Ritchie) and girl (Michelle) were facing their first summer of young adulthood, while reluctantly letting go of their adolescence. There was certainly enough summer parties and adventures to keep things popping. The ending was amazing, as Michelle gently guided Richie's future - even though she was emotionally distraught due to a family tragedy. LifeLong Friends Staying Together.

Those were the days. Days before technology overcame our youth, world, people still seemed to have strong, beliefs & opinions. Killer 80's soundtrack. The clothes, music true to the times. Spent many a Friday, Saturday night @ the obligatory local roller rink, some of the best days of my life. So if you're big on Nostalgia and this film reasonates personally and you want to take a walk down memory lane, this film definitely worth checking out. Shiloh Fernandez is Awesome in it as is Heath Freeman & Ashley Greene proves she's not just another pretty face does some pretty impressive, believable, touching acting herself,

Saw Skateland at Sundance in 2010, and snagged this bluray as soon as it came out. I am a big fan of any 80's movies, especially teen/high school films. Skateland hits both of those criteria. Here is the synopsis:

In the early 1980s, in small-town Texas, dramatic events force a 19-year-old skating rink manager to look at his life in a very new way.

The movie stars Shiloh Fernandez and Ashley Green (TWILIGHT) in breakout roles. If you dig 80's teen movies, this is a flick for you.

This one is so creaky, you can practically see the mechanical parts all moving as the film progresses. I guess it's some sort of homage to the late teen filmmaker John Hughes. We are supposedly in the early 80s here, but I kept noticing anachronisms like basketball shorts below the knee. Those did not exist in the early 80s. I don't think too many wore backwards baseball caps then, either. Yet no one is really dressing as lamely as they actually did back then, nor are the hairstyles as bad as they should have been for the period. The script is above-average, but you won't recall this one after 48 hours.

This movie really resonates with me for some reason. The characters have depth and there are a few twists here and there. It nails the year 1983 in so many ways--not just musically. The protagonist could move on with his life/career, but so many things are keeping him from advancing. His way of living is like a trap from which he could escape but, at the same time, this life has its comforts.
