06.06.05Cinemark Pflugerville people that aren't into this subject won't see it anyway, but what I think a lot of us who really liked the documentary Dogtown + Z-Boys felt is that this would be a watered-down inaaccurate cash-in on that film's success. Instead, everybody's talking about how it's surprisingly good and a worthy companion to the doc. Things like having Stacy Peralta write it, having the real guys help out with the skating moves, and filming a lot of the scenes on real locations help to win over the doco fans, and the resulting movie just plain works. Call me converted, I really liked it. Also, Heath Ledger does an awesome Val Kilmer impersonation through the whole thing. No matter how much I stared at him, I couldn't tell if it was Ledger or Kilmer.
