See trailer on latest '80s-era flick: 'Skateland'




MTV has the scoop and the trailer on a new '80s era movie called Skateland. The indie flick, which stars Twilight star Ashley Greene, revolves around life in a small Texas town in the early '80s as the local skating rink is getting set to close. It's set to hear theaters this spring.

Frankly, after reading more about the movie and seeing the trailer, I can only conclude it's far too depressing for me to consider seeing in its entirety.

"In our opinion, the trailer perfectly captures that '80s vibe of being on the brink, of saying goodbye to a simpler time and ushering in a new, riskier, more exhilarating tomorrow,"MTV  says. "It's kind of like a dramatic Dazed & Confused ... without Matthew McConaughey hitting on underage chicks."

So basically it's a redneck version of St. Elmo's Fire. No thanks.
