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.

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!

I used to own the MGM dvd a while ago, but somehow i either lent it or somebody stole it. Anyways, the original MGM dvd is better because it has subtitles and an audio commentary. This bluray by Olive films has a great HD picture. Crisp, clear, and amazing colors. But i wish i had the subtitles and audio commentary back. FYI the MGM dvd is oop and is priced okay used, so i would suggest getting the original dvd release. But don't get me wronge, this release is in HD and that might be important to you.

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

It seems that the story of Romeo and Juliet can be translated into almost any setting. Troma took it strange, WEST SIDE STORY took it to the gang filled streets of New York and this movie moves the setting to sunny California during the heyday of the skateboarders.

A young Josh Brolin stars as Corey Webster, a skateboarder with a dream to skate in the most death defying downhill run in the country called the LA Massacre that takes place in Los Angeles. With a little cash in pocket he heads west where he plans to stay with friends there. New to town when the group hits the seaside beach area set up for skateboarders, he strays into the turf run by The Daggers. This must be a tough group because, well, they’re decked out in black leather and just look tough.

Okay in case you didn’t recognize the sarcasm there this is a movie with 80s written all over it, everything from the slang to the look. Between the punked out make up and the style of clothing you keep waiting for Kajagoogoo or Flock of Seagulls to pop up somewhere. But seeing as how this is LA during the huge punk scene instead you get an early Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Circle Jerks.

Back to our movie. Corey catches the eye of a hot young girl among the Daggers named Chrissy (Pamela Gidley). A bit of flirting and a meet later sets the romance in motion between these two. Unfortunately Corey isn’t aware that Chrissy is the little sister of Tommy (Robert Russler), the leader of the Daggers and a skateboarding champ in the area. Once he discovers what is going on he sets out to keep the two apart but we know that isn’t likely.

A showdown between the two prior to the LA Massacre leaves Corey with a broken forearm and unable to compete.

IF you're into skateboarding at all, then this video is a must-have for your collection! It features Tony Alva, Christian Hosoi, Stev(i)e Caballero, Rodney Mullen (best freestyle skater EVER, I.M.O.),Tony Magnussen, & even Tony Hawk! This film from 1986 is a pinacle of the skateboarding era, stemming from one of the most notorious skate spots in the U.S., some say from where skateboarding originated, in Venice Beach, CA, A.K.A. "Dog Town". There are scenes in the film showing all varieties of skateboarding, including ramp (vert), street & even downhill. The love story that comes along with all the shredding is sort of cheesy, but is still worth the watch for all of the action. If you haven't seen this movie, it's a must! Especially if you're into the 80's movies OR skateboarding!
