i'm agnostic but asides kids, every movie w/ skating in it has flat out sucked from paranoid park to grind to gleaming the cube to thrashin'.
jonah should've made the little kid of him fat at least.
is that homage to kids when they 360 flip onto the white dude's big toe?
watch where i'm skatin mon.

Stevie's older brother is played by Lucas Hedges who somehow gets in well respected films like manchester by the sea, ladybird, three billboards, moonrise kingdom, and grand budapest hotel. I'll probably see this no matter what but that kid's agent knows a good script when he/she sees one which makes me more excited this.

This looks like it may actually be well-made, well-acted, cool and non-corny.

I'm reserving judgment and my hopes aren't high because of all the other "skate" movies that suck dick, but hey who knows?

Movies doesn’t look bad at all, but Jonah Hill isn’t a skateboarder.

By who's standard?
His own- he admits he doesn’t skate. He also seems to be making up or at least exaggerating his skating experience. I swear before this movie came out nobody ever mentioned Jonah Hill, now all these West LA pros keep claiming he used to be at the courthouse and hotrod and all that shit. Its weird to me though that nobody EVER mentioned he skated when movies like Superbad came out, nobody ever listed him as a movie star who skated in any of those “celebrities who skate/skated” threads despite him supposedly being such a regular at such famous spots.
He might have skated, but he did a FANTASTIC job of hiding that fact until it came time to profit from it- and that doesn’t feel right to me AT ALL. At minimum the dude is a culture vulture, and potentially he could be making it all up and using his hollywood clout to get fame-hungry LA pro skaters to go along with it, either way his love of skate culture is highly suspect.

Oh, and the only joke is about a black security guard getting mad about a biracial kid calling him The n-word...written and directed by dude who definitely shouldn’t be making jokes centered around calling black people that word....but its cool, because soon he’ll just claim he used to be black in the 90’s, right Jonah?

Semantics. I never went there, just remember their 411 industry section, and heard Alex Olson talk about getting fired from there after one day. Anyway, since you know it so well, do you remember seeing Jonah there? Can anybody on this board claim to have seen him there, or at the courthouse, or any other famous spot he loves to claim? Please, set me straight. Tell me about the rad sessions and how good of a kickflip Jonah had and how he definitely actually definitely really skated.

this doesn't look bad at all, considering Hollywood's history with skate movies.  Say what you want about Jonah Hill, but this is obviously his passion project and he was definitely skating in LA during that time, so I don't know why we feel the need to judge him so harshly for his interest in the subject matter.

between this and that new Skate Kitchen movie, this summer is going pretty hard on the "Kids" worship though.  (Skate Kitchen = Kids with girls; Mid 90's = Kids on the West Coast).  I guess it seems about that time with the 20 year nostalgia cycle though

He was there. There were a group of kids that hung out there and watched videos and he was one of them. If memory serves he appeared on a Hot Rod shop board graphic along with a bunch of the other infamous loiterers.

Aside from the 4:3 aspect ratio, I think this looks really good, i definitely don't think it's some culture vulture shit either. To the requests for clips of Hill skating back in the day...How many clips of yourself can you dig up from 97 or 98? I know I couldn't dig up a single one if I had to. While camcorders weren't exactly rare, the means to archive that shit properly totally was. Anyways, I think it looks pretty damn good and will totally be more true to skating and less of cash grab compared to Tony Hawk's old timers battle young punks over the skate park flick that is on its way

Why they have Nak in this? Acting? Based off of this trailer, I think it was a mistake to cast him.

In fact, all the Illegal Civ dudes...I know this is Mikey's movie as well, but you can't have homies as the main cast when they have 0 acting experience. Who knows, maybe they're pretty decent.

Nak better be wearing some old ass Adidas since this is a "90's" film.

And make it exactly like you want it, and let nothing go wrong, and it'll be perfect and you'll be so happy, and you'll get to watch it all you want, and listen to the songs that you chose and think about how perfect a job you did. Everyone else has failed, but you're going to nail it. Everyone will love you for it. You did a perfect job. Congrats

I like Jonah and the trailer was great, I'll be watching this. I don't care if he actually skateboards still but he seems to actually care about skateboarding alot so that's good enough for me. I don't get the "Hi, Thrasher hoodies are cool now so I'll be wearing them thanks"-vibe from him at all...

Just looked through the closet. I thought I had one. If I do, it's packed pretty deep. The board was made when Cameron Postfaroosh was running the store. I'll try and track one down. But my point being, Jonah was a grom like any other grom. He probably has real nostalgia for it. People around him might be exploiting his feelings for this movie, but his feelings are real I believe. He looked up to Robbie McKinley and Tim Bruns and all those guys.

Practically everyone from Kids had no acting ability and it came out fine. I mean Harold was being Harold but it didn't come off forced. That is why I always though Kids was a documentary of some sorts back in the days.

Or maybe they gave the black dude (who is a comedian, i forgot his name) the free reign to make jokes about being black and it was funny enough to make the trailer.


Movie looks good in my opinion. The older brother with the super clean room full of fresh nikes and rap albums is extremely mid 90s.

1. I saw him at The Courthouse a lot in the summer and fall of 97. I don't remember ever seeing or hearing about him outside of that period.
2. He was too fat to skate well. He could probably ollie, but not well enough to do it off the stairs or up the ledges. I doubt he could kickflip. I do remember him attempting a perversion of what he called a "frontside crooked grind" that involved him bailing while sort of flicking the board up on the ledge into the position of a reversed smith grind, if that makes sense.

I didn't add up that this person was Jonah Hill until a couple years ago. I want to say that mentally he's a skater even if his body barely allowed it.

Semantics. I never went there, just remember their 411 industry section, and heard Alex Olson talk about getting fired from there after one day. Anyway, since you know it so well, do you remember seeing Jonah there? Can anybody on this board claim to have seen him there, or at the courthouse, or any other famous spot he loves to claim? Please, set me straight. Tell me about the rad sessions and how good of a kickflip Jonah had and how he definitely actually definitely really skated.

Mentally I am in a very physically intimate relationship with Syd from Legion, even though my body, distance, and a probable restraining order do not allow it.

I don't remember any of those people and I skated all those spots. I doubt anyone would remember me either. I lived near Hot Rod and didn't realize it was a skate shop for a while (most people back then bought their stuff from Daniel Castillo anyway).

Is this movie about modern kids obsessed with the mid-90s or is this supposed to be the actual mid-90s? I do not recall WLA Courthouse being so trashy (then again anything westside seemed clean to me). By the way they're dressed, maybe it should be re-named "Mid to late-90s".

Not all of us were raised with confederate values like “insult a person who calls out racism.” That is southern virtue signaling, it often goes by the term “dog whistle.”
And the crail couch shit was AFTER he started making his movie. Even if the guy did “skate,” (according to others on this thread what he did barely counts) the dude never gave a nod to skating or seemed to care about it until he figured out he could make a movie about it.

If I made a skate vid with skits about Hollywood tryhards and Jonah Hill was riffing some good jokes about being a fat jew you're damn right they're making the cut. Would that make me a racist black dude?

he's was a rich fat kid that hung out at the skate shop/spot...I'm sure he bought tons of gear/vids and bought snacks for the skaters. spike threw him a bone with the crail couch and labor got some pub with non-skaters($$).

i can remember a few poseur hanger ons in the late 90s/early 00s. one kid at the shop got dropped on his collarbone and it broke, horseplaying w/ the clerk. that kid has a tiny brand that's prolly 20 yrs old and he hangs out w/ smolik and skates pools.
there was another kid, a suburban wigger rich kid who hung out at the indoor park. he paid which financed other older guys not paying so thank you for that. he told tall tales then and apparently he's still a liar.
so i guess those kids can go either way but if you are rougher on them it's for their own good.

All you idiots on the first page claiming Jonah wasn't a skater...come on dude had that mini top 5 I remember seeing when it came out, you don't pick those parts if you don't skate. The movie looks ok, but props to him for dropping and probably losing a bunch of money to make something about his childhood past time. I was a fat kid growing up in the mid 90s and I didn't really fit in. I thought skateboarding was cool seeing it Back to the Future and when I finally got a real board in 1994 and started skating it changed my life, it took me 2 years to learn how to kickflip. Now almost 25 years later I can't imagine my life without it. If I had a profession that allowed me to express how much skateboarding meant to me to people inside and outside skateboarding it would really be hard to do, and I don't know if I would do it but I think its rad that he Jonah Hill is. All you dudes talking shit are just jaded haters that reek of jealously and envy of someone who's had success.

Also Gipper you still love to assume shit and virtue signal every chance you get. Let me ask you a question. You ever heard of improv? How do you know the Jonah Hill wrote that line and that the actor didn't add that word in himself, which is very likely. Or how do you know he wasn't quoting from a personal experience with a security guard from his youth? Is he supposed to change alter the quote? You've already been proven wrong once in this post so maybe its time you realize that just because you went to college and are now a school teacher that you know it all.

P.S. Slap wouldn't be the same without you Gip...but I have to give you shit for old times sake ;)
A dude from the south used the Milo playbook and claims others are “virtue signalling” for not going along with lame racist bullshit...who would’ve thunk it? “How dare you say racism is bullshit?” And if I work in education to help reverse the effects of racism as a career, its not really signalling, its just me being morally consistent. I went out to fight nazis this past week, even with a broken hand. Dear, I don’t just say anti-racist things to look good, I live those values. Not all of us were raised with confederate values like “insult a person who calls out racism.” That is southern virtue signaling, it often goes by the term “dog whistle.”
And the crail couch shit was AFTER he started making his movie. Even if the guy did “skate,” (according to others on this thread what he did barely counts) the dude never gave a nod to skating or seemed to care about it until he figured out he could make a movie about it. Then suddenly its always been oh-so-important.

Jonah Hill was a shop grom and employee at Labor skate shop in NY before he became an actor. Hes a suuuuper gnarly skate nerd and is part of why supreme has such a huge demographic by using his platform and connections to get it blown up. He can tell you everything that happened in every video or mag from video days to pretty sweet. SUPER GNARLY skate nerd.

the biggest surprise to me so far is what a ripper the main little kid is. he did a good job acting like he couldn't skate in the trailer but I searched some clips and he's sick. he's also got a legit acting career going so that was a really fortuitous casting move.

also congrats on ronron for going out to "fight nazis with a broken hand". +1 resistance dude.

He should make a movie about desperately wanting to be a part of something that's more his area of expertise

Being a dude who thinks he's gonna be good at banging chicks = "Superbad"

Being a dude who wants to party like a rock star = "Get Him to the Greek"

Being a dude who wants to make Mr. Skin and smoke weed = "Knocked Up"

Being a dude who is a nerd = "Accepted"

Being not as cool as Brad Pitt = "Moneyball"

Being not as cool as Leo and probably as cool as he is in real life = "Wolf of Wall Street"

I'm disappointed in myself for even responding to this mindlessness. You've actually gotten dumber over the past couple years which I suppose is par for the course of the entire leftist movement. It sickens me that you actually teach children anything considering you're such an ideologue who  strays away from any objective thinking and labels anyone who disagrees with you a racist and a nazi. Those are serious charges and you're contributing to the watering down of those terms and in a way even legitimizing the actual tiny percentage of them that do exist.

Secondarily are you claiming that I was raised with confederate values? Dude I grew up just outside of Washington DC in northern Virginia. The neighborhood I grew up in was and still is predominantly black and hispanic. My father grew up even closer to Washington DC and my mom is from the Jersey shore. Hardly confederate values, but again your false assumptions are spouted while attempting to discredit me. I was raised to respect everyone, and the golden rule, and to work toward my desires. Truth be told I was and still am a person of liberal values but when I was growing up even more so into he leftist ideology. I was a full on democrat, I mean who wouldn't be growing up in the Bush era. It wasn't until I was in my mid 20's when I started to actually challenge my views when some of them changed and where I started to lean toward libertarianism, or classical liberalism. I just can't sign onto this hysteria as I don't see a world of nazi's and racists on every corner.

I'm still wondering what in this trailer was the "racist bullshit" you are not going along with. An African American security guard using a term that is widely used and accepted within that community and is not deemed racist whatsoever? Or the fact that a Jewish guy wrote the script you're assuming that he wrote that word into the script to somehow provoke racism and not that he was perhaps documenting a personal experience? Or as I pointed out simply improv by the actor and not written in the script at all? Is any of that possible in your eyes? Is everything and everyone racist? It's just ridiculous, those are serious charges as its a truly disgraceful act to be a real racist so you should really be sure about what you're saying before making those claims.

In my eyes you are being the bigot. Your ideology is completely intolerant of any diverse opinion or thought. Can't you see the hypocrisy you're engaged in? It would seem to me that your ideology is so weak and hollow that in order to make your arguments valid you have a discount the opposing view with a disgraceful term such as racist or nazi in an attempt to delegitimize them even if its unfounded and dishonest. It's kinda like one of your students getting a poor score on a test but saying that some of their classmates got even lower scores in an attempt to make themselves look and feel better. I'm not even sure they even score tests anymore though, it could be mean and hurtful to give someone a low score, oh unless they disagree with you of course.

Oh and you think this dude is trying to cash in on skateboarding? I bet he loses money making this film because it doesn't really look that good and its only going to be relatable to a small percentage of the population.

Or the fact that a Jewish guy wrote the script you're assuming that he wrote that word into the script to somehow provoke racism and not that he was perhaps documenting a personal experience? Or as I pointed out simply improv by the actor and not written in the script at all? Is any of that possible in your eyes? Is everything and everyone racist? It's just ridiculous, those are serious charges as its a truly disgraceful act to be a real racist so you should really be sure about what you're saying before making those claims.

In my eyes you are being the bigot. Your ideology is completely intolerant of any diverse opinion or thought. Can't you see the hypocrisy you're engaged in? It would seem to me that your ideology is so weak and hollow that in order to make your arguments valid you have a discount the opposing view with a disgraceful term such as racist or nazi in an attempt to delegitimize them even if its unfounded and dishonest. It's kinda like one of your students getting a poor score on a test but saying that some of their classmates got even lower scores in an attempt to make themselves look and feel better. I'm not even sure they even score tests anymore though, it could be mean and hurtful to give someone a low score, oh unless they disagree with you of course.

Oh and you think this dude is trying to cash in on skateboarding? I bet he loses money making this film because it doesn't really look that good and its only going to be relatable to a small percentage of the population.

For the record Jonah did talk about this movie on Howard Stern over a year ago and he seems legit to me. His weight fluctuates at a crazy rate though. Hoping he has a long life but he just looks like a guy who would OD.

Post by: DCLOVE on September 02, 2018, 09:52:36 AM
All you idiots on the first page claiming Jonah wasn't a skater...come on dude had that mini top 5 I remember seeing when it came out, you don't pick those parts if you don't skate. The movie looks ok, but props to him for dropping and probably losing a bunch of money to make something about his childhood past time. I was a fat kid growing up in the mid 90s and I didn't really fit in. I thought skateboarding was cool seeing it Back to the Future and when I finally got a real board in 1994 and started skating it changed my life, it took me 2 years to learn how to kickflip. Now almost 25 years later I can't imagine my life without it. If I had a profession that allowed me to express how much skateboarding meant to me to people inside and outside skateboarding it would really be hard to do, and I don't know if I would do it but I think its rad that he Jonah Hill is. All you dudes talking shit are just jaded haters that reek of jealously and envy of someone who's had success.

Also Gipper you still love to assume shit and virtue signal every chance you get. Let me ask you a question. You ever heard of improv? How do you know the Jonah Hill wrote that line and that the actor didn't add that word in himself, which is very likely. Or how do you know he wasn't quoting from a personal experience with a security guard from his youth? Is he supposed to change alter the quote? You've already been proven wrong once in this post so maybe its time you realize that just because you went to college and are now a school teacher that you know it all.

P.S. Slap wouldn't be the same without you Gip...but I have to give you shit for old times sake ;)
A dude from the south used the Milo playbook and claims others are “virtue signalling” for not going along with lame racist bullshit...who would’ve thunk it? “How dare you say racism is bullshit?” And if I work in education to help reverse the effects of racism as a career, its not really signalling, its just me being morally consistent. I went out to fight nazis this past week, even with a broken hand. Dear, I don’t just say anti-racist things to look good, I live those values. Not all of us were raised with confederate values like “insult a person who calls out racism.” That is southern virtue signaling, it often goes by the term “dog whistle.”
And the crail couch shit was AFTER he started making his movie. Even if the guy did “skate,” (according to others on this thread what he did barely counts) the dude never gave a nod to skating or seemed to care about it until he figured out he could make a movie about it. Then suddenly its always been oh-so-important.

I'm disappointed in myself for even responding to this mindlessness. You've actually gotten dumber over the past couple years which I suppose is par for the course of the entire leftist movement. It sickens me that you actually teach children anything considering you're such an ideologue who  strays away from any objective thinking and labels anyone who disagrees with you a racist and a nazi. Those are serious charges and you're contributing to the watering down of those terms and in a way even legitimizing the actual tiny percentage of them that do exist.

Secondarily are you claiming that I was raised with confederate values? Dude I grew up just outside of Washington DC in northern Virginia. The neighborhood I grew up in was and still is predominantly black and hispanic. My father grew up even closer to Washington DC and my mom is from the Jersey shore. Hardly confederate values, but again your false assumptions are spouted while attempting to discredit me. I was raised to respect everyone, and the golden rule, and to work toward my desires. Truth be told I was and still am a person of liberal values but when I was growing up even more so into he leftist ideology. I was a full on democrat, I mean who wouldn't be growing up in the Bush era. It wasn't until I was in my mid 20's when I started to actually challenge my views when some of them changed and where I started to lean toward libertarianism, or classical liberalism. I just can't sign onto this hysteria as I don't see a world of nazi's and racists on every corner.

I'm still wondering what in this trailer was the "racist bullshit" you are not going along with. An African American security guard using a term that is widely used and accepted within that community and is not deemed racist whatsoever? Or the fact that a Jewish guy wrote the script you're assuming that he wrote that word into the script to somehow provoke racism and not that he was perhaps documenting a personal experience?

as a cinephile myself, I don't have anything negative to say about this movie that most have here. i'm definitely looking forward to see the movie this weekend. personally, i'm sure the film we be just fine.

i think people here are judgmental of this because it's a skateboarding movie made for the mainstream - and also the people behind the movie also are unfavourable to some people here (IC, jonah hill presumably being a culture vulture, etc). people are quick to judge before even watching it. that's what I thought about skate kitchen before I saw it, but it was actually a pretty ok movie.

Agreed on all of that.

The fact that, despite Jonah proving that he knows what he's talking about in that mini top 5 and multiple people verifying he was there on the scene in the 90's, people are still calling him a poser and culture vulture in this thread is truly a testament to the kind of anti-intellectualism running rampant on this board.

just got out of the world premiere. it was everyone in the cast first time watching it so the room was full of pandemonium.

wow. movie was crazy good. the acting actually feels genuine 95% of the time (the scene everyone that has been dogging on Nakel is actually really good in context of the scene). the trailer is also a very small snippet of the plot. the third act caught the room by surprise and the audience fell silent for almost all of it. soundtrack was also perfect.

during the q&a jonah mentioned about hanging out at the courthouse and why he thought it would be good to feature it prominently in the film. surprisingly no one asked about ANY FOOTAGE.

as for him being a culture culture/poser for making this; he got everything right and it didn’t feel corny.

i recommend everyone check it out when it drops. i’m watching it again tomorrow afternoon.

nakel killed it. there were a lot of scenes in the movie where it featured him and didn’t blow it. in the q&a he was mad hyped and definitely proud of the hard work he put into it.

for cameos, from what i recall, skateline gary and ishod are in it. even funnier, there’s two actors that are supposed to resemble chico brenes and shamile. i guess itllmake sense why when y’all see the movie.

"If Jonah Hill’s name weren’t on “mid90s,” it could pass as one of the coolest films that ever played at Sundance. But the fact that a star like Hill built this movie from the ground up, and did it with so much integrity and flair, lends it an undeniable hipster quotient. The very fact that we know he made it becomes part of the experience. You can hear a distant echo of Hill’s cutthroat wit in some of the film’s existential stoner absurdism — the lines that are funny because they aren’t meant to be. However much it is (or isn’t) based on Hill’s life, “mid90s” feels like a memoir. The soundtrack thrives on its cred, but when Stevie and his friends cruise on their boards down a twilight L.A. boulevard, viewed in telephoto long shot, to the sounds of “Dedicated to the One I Love” or the best Morrissey performance I’d never heard, you can feel a twinge of romanticism. That’s what growing up is all about: knowing that whoever you were hanging out with, they were the shit, because they showed you what was real."

at the second screening's q&a, somebody asked him if he ever skated, and his response was pretty much what we've heard before - he did when he was younger, but because he was overweight he never really was good, but hung around skaters all the time (kinda like the main character of this movie) and hung out at the courthouse. then he brought up the infamous kickflip photo and nakel and sunny (who was present at the q&a with the rest of the cast) confirmed themselves said that they saw him land a kickflip.

haha honestly at this point, having seen the movie, i’ve kinda stopped caring whether or not he skates. you can be obsessed with skating and not skate.

and if he doesn’t, so what? it’s a good movie and doesn’t really portray skaters very negatively. i thought it was gonna be shit too but was surprised it was the opposite. and my friends that were there said the same. it ain’t no grind or street dreams.

I'm sure the movie is fine. I'm calling BS on him actually skating. You want to be a super fan without doing shit then go watch the NFL/NBA. Those stands are filled with people who are huge fans but never put in any work. To make a 90's skate movie and be oblivious to the anti-poser sentiment of the era is hilarious. Hang out at the courthouse and not skate? WTF?
Skateboarding is simple but it does require actually skating. Too fat? skate more. Not any good? skate more.
With the rise in skate parks, skate camps/schools, skate moms/coaches etc. the culture has been diluted and is now just another sport/activity that accepts everyone. The wild west landscape of 90s skate culture is what appealed to outsiders and by letting those outsiders in we are left with the present day state.

How did you arrive at this? He can make all the movies he wants, I just have a problem when he fakes like he skated. I've seen more footage of justin bieber trying to skate. Even lil wayne is putting in work. This guy just has a rich hollywood dad so he gets a pass. This could all be cleared up with a 20 second iphone clip.

2. Judging stuff without watching it is what soccer moms and Republicans do. Ripping apart the one guy who actually saw the movie is weird.

3. All the movies that are focused around skateboarding sucks, if its good then it was only a side thing like 'Back to the Future'. At worst Mid 90s will just add to a strong tradition.

4. All of Spike Jonze's movies are overrated.

Everything Larry Clark has ever done has been about underage sex. I would say youthful debauchery is the main theme that his work is about. That's not a judgement just an observation.

I watched Thrashin last night because my internet was down and it is still objectively terrible but also super fun. Worst case scenario, Mid-90s will be similar.

Who said there needs to be a skater made movie? Skateboarding is too raw and subjective to translate to movies. We can't even agree on what parts/vids are good. I have no problem with him wanting to make a movie but when you are trying to capture an era with the pretense that you lived it is something else. I'm not doubting that he's been into skating or has watched a bunch of videos but that sounds like a fan, not a skater. It's easy to say "who cares" but like many others on here I have put a lot time, money, effort, broken bones(&surgeries) into skating and I take it personally when someone who obviously didn't wants to be the voice.

i get where you're coming from on this but (and this is not a slight on chico at all) he always had the kind of accessible style of skating that people who knew they'd never get that good could aspire to. even now he's so amazing but he's just doing the kind of flatground stuff that seems learnable.

(edit)
i'm not sticking up for jonah here. just sticking up for skaters that knew they'd never chomp rails and looked up to people that liked his style of skating. it makes sense on that level cause i am fat and not good too.

3. All the movies that are focused around skateboarding sucks, if its good then it was only a side thing like 'Back to the Future'. At worst Mid 90s will just add to a strong tradition.

4. All of Spike Jonze's movies are overrated.

Woah woah woah. You nailed everything except for #4, Being John Malkovich and Adaptation are masterpieces.

No intention to knock on Spike's directing but I think these are more masterpieces, in my opinion, due to Charlie Kaufman's writing.

I totally agree, but if we are referring to them as Spike Jonze films by moniker, then my statement still stands.

Michel Gondry is the one who struggled outside of Kaufman’s writing.  Spike got an Oscar for writing Her and Where the Wild Things Are is/was a perfectly fine adaptation that everyone forgot existed

if anyone cares, the first round of press interviews are out for it after the premiere @ TIFF. Currently I have only read positive reviews, besides on here, with people praising Lucas Hedges and Nakel for their acting. More than likely gonna pay the $13 or however much movie tickets are now and go see this movie.

Can we talk about how good that Sunny kid is at skating? While it’s pretty normal these days to be as good as he is, and most of the footage is park footage, he has a seriously impressive bag of tricks and as good a style as you could possibly have for a 4 foot tall 13 year old.

Don't understand the hate. It's a love letter to skateboarding from a guy who seems to be down for it. Just because he doesn't skate anymore doesn't mean he's not allowed to show appreciation.

I stopped playing basketball while ago (shin splints like a bitch), but I still appreciate it.

What is this even supposed to mean??? lmao.

HINT: If a movie gets unanimous praise from critics, 90% of the time it means it's a good movie. The people who talk shit on movie critics because they think films that critics favor are boring or pretentious are tasteless dipshits who prefer superhero or transformers movies to actual cinema that have NO business voicing their opinion on any film, ESPECIALLY when all they've seen is the trailer.

Just take one second to examine the mental gymnastics you kooks are partaking in to hate on this movie:

Y'all went from

the trailer looks shitty 

to even if it's good it sucks because Jonah is lying about his past

to ok evidence was provided for the fact that Jonah skated and was a regular at Hot Rod and though it is an objective fact that he likes skating and grew up in it he shouldn't be allowed to make this movie because he wasn't a good skater

AND

 despite the fact that several well respected pros who are ACTUAL gatekeepers to this culture fully back the film and Jonah as a person I, a no one online, believe I am more of a gatekeeper than those pros

AND

even if every critic likes it that just means they are "supposed to like it" so the movie still sucks.

The cognitive dissonance going on with y'all is...incredible.

Obviously not all critics are good at their jobs and when you break it down all art is subjective,
but if you don't think the cumulative opinion of people who's job it is to critique film is more valid than the cumulative opinion of general American audiences, who average a 3rd grade reading/writing level, then idk what to tell you.

Everyone is giving it praise,I've yet to see a shit review by someone thst saw it. Maybe it is good? I don't know. I'm in no rush to see it,but expect my grandma to talk to me about it after seeing Jonah on tv promoting it

From the two times I've seen it at TIFF, although I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, there's no cohesive plot other than let's see what this kid gets into today. His mom and brother get underused in this which kinda sucked, and there aren't many consequences for their actions, felt this especially in the final act. Also, I know it won't matter to a lot of people here, but the dialogue will probably get in some hot water with PC people.

After watching Minding the Gap today, 2018 has been a good year for skateboarding "movies" for the most part. This doc, along with mid90s and Skate Kitchen, here are three movies that each have something skaters to relate to. It wasn't until I watched MTG where it felt a little to real as I can compare those people in the doc to myself and some of my friends I used to skate with - and how much skating was used as an outlet to escape.
