” Grind Movie” is the latest video from the Internet production team known as Von der Hahn. It’s a damn good time for this movie. I’ll start by saying that the production values are top notch. The film is full of editing, special effects, and practical humor. By the time you get to the end, you’re glad you didn’t waste any time watching it!
The story begins in the rural backwoods of southern California. A sixteen year old boy named Mike (D Vince Di Luigi) travels across America with his friends to watch a famous skateboarding event. While at the event, he meets a local skateboarder who happens to be very well hung and also quite dangerous.
The local skateboard competitions are a lot of fun, to say the least. The streets of California are lined with warehouses and parks that have massive amounts of ramps and rails for people to test their skills on. Mike comes across some “new skaters,” including two “bikini girls” who happen to be really cool. They invite him and his friends to go skating with them the next day. Their excitement inspires the group to buy some new equipment, including a giant skateboard, a knee-high strapped on skateboard, and lots of first aid kits.
Soon, they are flying through the hills and rolling down gutters. When they arrive at their skate shop, however, they find it has been looted. One of the “bikini girls,” a local skater named Charity (Lori Singer), has been seriously injured in the attack. The other girls spot Mike and promise to help him get Charity the medical attention she needs.
Soon enough, they learn about a nationwide tournament called the grind. There, they will battle out the “best skater” and the “best team” and earn the title of “Graved.” They are also asked to perform at various places around the country, which they do impressively. While many of their friends think they are too “girly” for a movie, the girls prove they have what it takes to be a team player. Once the movie rolls, you’ll see why so many people are looking forward to watching ” Grind House.”
Aside from the awesome skating scenes, the real strength of the movie is the touching story between Mike and Charity. They have a real, heartfelt relationship with one another, something most young stars don’t have. You’ll also get to see the girls grow as skateboarding stars. It’s great that director Stephanie Meyer didn’t waste any time introducing more characters into the grindhouse, including Mike’s parents.
If you’re going to see ” Grind House,” make sure you’re prepared for what happens to the grindhouse after the movie ends. Many people enjoy seeing the actual skaters perform their tricks on the half-pipe and roof, but the reality is that the house becomes something else once the movie is over. People can drive across the street and kick it into the fence at night, which brings us to the second attraction, the skateboarding party. At most skateboarding parties, there will be plenty of neon lights and retro graffiti. It’s a nice way to make the most of your visit to the ” Grind House ” when in Toronto.
If you’re not familiar with “Grind House,” stop by your local video store or library to rent it. The girls in the movie might seem “homemade,” but you’ll be surprised how good they are at tricks. If you have the opportunity to visit Toronto, you should definitely do so. You won’t be disappointed!
If you have a little girl in your life, you should definitely take them to the “Grind House” movies. They’ll get a lot of attention from the guys at the store, and you’ll probably score points with your little girl with her first crush. She’ll love all the crazy girls she sees there. You can even get them started on learning how to skateboard if you let them watch the movie with you.
While you’re in Toronto, take your little girl to the same video store you got the movie from. They’ll spend hours perfecting their moves on the “Grind House” set. Afterward, you can head over to the video store and pick up some other “Grind House” DVDs to watch. There are going to be a lot of different movies to choose from. You’ll be sure to have a blast visiting the “Grind House” set while you’re in Toronto.
Even though it may seem silly to spend money on toys for your little girl, you’ll have such a blast. Besides, you’ll also be supporting the great cause of skating. You can buy anything from stickers to apparel to skateboards at wholesale prices if you take advantage of online auctions. You won’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home to do it.
