Strap on your skates and head back to the 80's with Ashley Greene in this Skateland trailer

01.19.2011

For those who find Ashley Greene attractive but do not want to watch any TWILIGHT films will be happy to see this trailer for SKATELAND.

If you were hoping for a film about skateboarding you won't find it here. Instead this is a coming of age film set in the 80's with a skating rink as the place where all the kids hangout. The trailer gives a bit of a heavier DAZED AND CONFUSED vibe. It did well at Sundance last year and impressed Chris Bumbray who gave it an 8/10.

Synopsis:

"Skateland explores the rupture of charismatic Ritchie Wheeler, brother and sister Brent and Michelle Burkham, and wise-cracking lady-killer Kenny Crawford's seemingly complacent existence as they struggle with the collapse of their tumultuous home lives, the alcohol induced idling of reckless adolescence, and the wane of their hometown hangout, the local roller rink."

Extra Tidbit: Did anyone here spend a lot of time at the roller rink? I did in the 90's when kids were slow skating to "I Swear" by All-4-One.

Im a sucker for an 80's flick so this looks like it's right up my alley. And tidbit, yeah, I spent a lot of time at the rink in the 90's as well. Seems so long ago now, but those were good times.

I love good coming of age films and this looks very promising. The only thing is it's weird to see 80's films in particular shown in such good quality, it makes it look a little more unrealistic for some reason.

Adventureland meets Dazed and Confused. Boy realizes he parties too much and that the love of his life is right in front of him. By the end of the film, he finally grows up and becomes a man. And yes, I used to go skating. It was a great place to meet girls.

Looks good. I am a big fan of coming of age movies and especially 80's films or movies that take place in the 80's. The trailer does give off a Dazed and Confused vibe.

Also, having a very sexy Ashley Greene is only a positive.
