Trivia

The Cosmic Age Lodge used in the movie is now demolished. It was on Harbor Boulevard just south of the Disneyland entrance and north of Katella. Now part of Cars Land sits where the motel stood. Before the Disneyland area was drastically changed and the "Space Race" was in it's heyday, Harbor Boulevard had a lot of "Space Age" themed motels, as well as "Character" themed motels/hotels such as "The Peter Pan Lodge".

whoa, this is simply the coolest. skate or die man!
2 January 2002 | by See all my reviews

It doesn't get any cooler than this. This is the best skate boarding movie ever. There are some really impressive scenes and the movie totally rocks. Its a bit old school now, but so what? It just adds charactor and proves that it doesn't matter how advanced technology gets, they don't make gems like this anymore. yep, they sure as hell don't! Check out Christian Slaters hair! Its awesome. And so's this movie. Heh, Sorry to sound like a air headed boy of 13. The only thing I would ever slamm this movie for was some of the acting. Christian Slater is cool, but there were some weak performances by others. This doesn't effect the movie on bit though! Hey, and it has Tony Hawk in it. The man! Need I say anymore?

2 very enthusiastic thumbs up, 10 out of 10
