Lords of Dogtown 2005

In Venice, California in the mid '70's, the sport of surfing brought together a group of teenagers from a rough neighborhood. Riding the waves at the Pacific Ocean Park pier, a graveyard of a former amusement park, the boys from "Dogtown" joined the Zephyr skate team (or Z-boys). Known for their aggressive style, awe-inspiring moves and hard street attitude, the Z-Boys spent mornings and afternoons skateboarding.

Personally, I had read a lot about Peralta, being that he is a filmmaker now, and I knew that he...

Lords of Dogtown Movie Review by Zara (1/24/2007)

I'm an old school skater chick. I used to roll with the boys, grinding up the steps in front of the abandoned Pt Mugu Theater, eating sidewalk and wandering around in search of the next stretch of steps or ridiculously long handrail to conquer.

Watching LORDS OF DOGTOWN, I swear there were moments when I broke out in...

Lords of Dogtown Movie Review by Seth C (10/19/2006)

Lords Of Dogtown is actually probably a better film then I'm giving it credit for, however I won't know for sure until I view it again.

The film starts off rather slow and the script seems somewhat weak and jumbled until at least thirty minutes into the film when we finally realize which three of these 'z-boys' were going...

Lords of Dogtown Movie Review by Matthew (6/6/2005)

The many times I watched the trailer for “The Lords of Dogtown”, I cringed at the sight of Heath Ledger. The images of him as a drugged out former hippy recruiting a bunch of kids to ride skateboards caused me to start grinding my teeth. The images hinted at one over the top performance, and not in a good way.
