Scorchin' Summer
1999, 33 minutes
Current Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

Scorchiní Summer features just about every type of terrain you can possibly think of: pools, ledges, handrails, parks and vert, this flick has it all. Naturally, this equates to almost every type of trick imaginable being performed, from flippity tricks to slasher grinds to humongous lemon-drops into flat banks. The format differs from typical videos by mostly featuring spots as opposed to skaters. Also, there are over a hundred skaters in this video that appear in montages. The music is strictly underground rap and hardcore.

Scorchiní Summer sucks! There is just no nice way of putting it. Sure, it's always good seeing footage of Speyer, Drehobl, Burnquist, etc., but that doesn't make up for the fact that this video appears to have been thrown together with almost no thought whatsoever. It seems as if the filmers couldn't be bothered with finding good angles, the editors chose this "unique" format to avoid editing, and tone-deaf head trauma victims picked the music. Lets just say that you've never heard of these bands for a good reason! The video has no flow at all; the parts just end abruptly and jump right into the next sloppily edited section. There is so much park and contest footage that it will literally bore you to sleep and just in case you forget that you are watching a Thrasher vid instead of a shitty volume of 411, the logo appears in the corner throughout the entire video... even between parts! Seriously, the best thing about Scorchiní Summer is that I never have to watch it again.
