Those were the days
3 December 2005 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

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.
