Lords of Dogtown
Recommended: Yeah, sure.
Comments: Skateboarding is not really my kind of thing, but this is an okay movie nonetheless. The best part was Tony Hawk playing an astronaut who falls off a board during a photo op with one of the skaters. Also, there was some killer rock and roll during the '70s, and a whole bunch of it makes it into this film.
While I'm here, though, I want to put in another plug for Murderball. A documentary about wheelchair rugby played by paraplegics, it was really excellent, not to mention much more broadly appealing than you'd think given the subject matter.
