This article is terrible, biased and immature.


Gee, thanks. How about doing something constructive with it, then? Perhaps cite some specific incidences of bias and immaturity. I've done some major cleanup on the article, but I'm leaving the copy-editing tag up for now, just because I think some sections, especially the history bit, need serious stylistic revision. --Nevah Entitar 22:55, 24 December 2005 (UTC)


Someone needs to put in the story. You know, piece-by-piece. One example is Get Rich or Die Tryin' (2005 film), which I added the Plot to on my last account, which I can't log into now ... Anyways, use that as an example, as in someone who's either seen the movie recently, or has seen it enough times to remember it detail-by-detail relatively closely, needs to write the plot of the Movie. I would do it now, but I haven't seen the movie for maybe half a year now, and the only thing I remember is the last scene ... Which made me cry ='(

Since I am so awesome, and therefore have a subscription to Juice Magazine, I will make a criticisms part to this article and try to remove some of the immaturity. You have to understand, though, that this article was written by people who saw the movie: 12 year olds.24.154.173.50 07:08, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

This article honestly is terrible. I did some cleaning up and expanding a few months ago, but peope re-edited it. A lot of the events in the movie are improperly described in this article. Also, someone needs to go back through and revise for grammar and clarity. This article looks like it was written by a bunch of 10-year olds. I haven't watched the movie in awhile, so I don't want to edit anything yet, but it will try and get around to it soon.

People who write anything for this article should try and be fairly familiar with Dogtown and Z-Boys and the actual Dogtown movement. A lot of the problems with this article have to do with people interpreting the movie the wrong way, not knowing it is based on real events, and/or being unfamiliar with these real events.

Hi, I just made minor changes - corrected a few typos, cleaned up punctuation, and reworded a few sentences for clarity. Aoibheannniamh 02:36, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Yes. I agree some change needs to be made to try and clean it up. However, if you knew me you would know my grammer and such is horrible. Anywho, I agree with the above statement of having someone who knows more about the Dogtown movement. Perhaps someone who has possibly seen the wounderful documenteries that have been creadted. I am not sure, but I might try to help some on the weekends I have free time. Now I know I may be stating the obvious(I tend to do that alot.) But I wanted to say something, and I think I have that right.Crazzycorbe 02:32, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

I used to be relatively familiar with the things mentioned, though I haven't though enough about the Zephyr Boys, or the movie, or events in the movie, in enough time to really have forgotten most of it. I can't remember much of the movie, though ... But, yes, like someone said, the article appears to have been written by a child in several places ... But it was certainly not only seen by 12-year-olds (even though, eerily enough, I was 12 when I saw it), and a lot of other people watched it. To say it was only seen by little kids is really imbecilic, in my opinion ...
