Guide Review - The Bones Brigade Video Show Review
The other sequences include the “Downhill Slide” with Stacey Peralta bombing down a hill to 80’s guitar riffs, a backyard halfpipe session with hilariously cheesy shots of hot girls watching, and “The Amazing Mr. Mullen” pulls out his what-the-heck-was-that freestyle.
The Bones Brigade Video Show is fun and refreshing. It came out before the punk attitude really took hold, and you can tell that these guys are having fun. The style of filming is totally different from what we have today – the Bones Brigade videos are all about capturing the action and spirit of the skaters.
The DVD only has one extra feature – a cool video starting with super old footage of Stacy Peralta skating from 1972-80 that shifts to a background collage of old graphics and stickers with clips and dates of all the Peralta skate videos sliding by. Stacey Peralta is a filming genius and an incredible service to skateboarding with his work on these videos.
