    This was solid, kind of better than I expected. There’s a lot of moments where it’s genuinely hilarious. Na-Kel carries any emotional weight in the film. Kid is super talented.

    I loved it. It’s good not great but fucking hell there were some stupid/annoying people in the theater with me.

    I watched it this afternoon and I thought it was decent. The ending just seemed very abrupt. I also spent half the movie trying to figure out why most of these skaters seemed familiar and I remembered most rep Illegical Civilization skating which I saw a video from a few months ago.

    I feel like this could have been my life but when I was 12 but my parents got me a shitty walmart skateboard with wheels that didn't even spin and I ate shit going down the driveway and never picked up a skateboard again.

    So I saw this on Sunday and one lingering thing that’s never explained... Stevie’s self harm. First we see him picking at a bruise from fighting with his brother. Then he rubs his Mom’s brush on his leg (at first I thought he was punishing himself to justify stealing money from her). And then after he gets home drunk and provokes his brother to a fight, he runs away and strangles himself with the video game control cord. I understand he’s a shy kid trying to make friends, but I’m not that familiar with those who self harm

    yeah i feel like the brother and mother characters and his self harm arent fleshed out enough at all but this may have been intentional

    I didn't know Na-kel's uncle is Kareem Campbell. That's pretty awesome.

    Jonah Hill said he was going to make a giant Spotify playlist of everything in the movie, everything that got cut and everything that inspired him during writing it

    If you liked this, seek out the film, "Skate Kitchen" from earlier this year. Similar stuff but from a female perspective (albeit a little more focused on skating)

    Also, Jerrod was lowkey the highlight of this movie.

    Na-Kel Smith and Lucas Hedges were easily my favorite part of this.

    There was a 14 yr old kid who snuck in to see this with us and asked to sit with us cause he was scared of getting kicked out lol

    Solid debut, Na-Kel really does carry the film, can’t wait to see what Jonah does next

    Half way through. Man Jonah is trying his darndest to be Korine. Even threw the man a cameo. It’s ok

    One of my favorite movies of the year. Absolutely nailed growing up skateboarding

    not to be a downer but i hated this movie and thought Skate Kitchen did everything/said everything this wanted to say but 10x more eloquently with double the impact.

    I did think all the actors were dope/super watchable though

    I have never heard of Skate Kitchen but I'm going to check it out.

    Here is the synopsis on Rotten Tomatoes.
    "In the first narrative feature from The Wolfpack director Crystal Moselle, Camille, an introverted teenage skateboarder (newcomer Rachelle Vinberg) from Long Island, meets and befriends an all-girl, New York City-based skateboarding crew called Skate Kitchen. She falls in with the in-crowd, has a falling-out with her mother, and falls for a mysterious skateboarder guy (Jaden Smith), but a relationship with him proves to be trickier to navigate than a kickflip. "

    Cringeeeee.

    Sounds good though!

    Die rad.

    is this better than Minding THe Gap? People on here were praising it last week so I gave it a shot and was not impressed.

    the Jaden Smith stuff was just there to help sell the movie tbh its a very little part of the overall film.

    I liked Mid 90s, but Skate Kitchen stuck with me more. Still need to watch Minding the Gap, but I expect it's the best of the 3.

    beautiful and chequered, the end

    with mid90's, i felt it just romanticized every aspect of skate culture while Skate Kitchen did a good job of showing the importance of skate boarding while also being critical of the more toxic aspects of its community.
