Hi Nick. I'm fortunate to have this already, although I don't think it's as good as it could have been. A little disappointing.

I just bought a copy of Gleaming the Cube on eBay and think I might have been taken. The disc looks like a bootleg. Does anybody own the region 1 Artisan release that would be willing to post a pick of the disc itself so I can tell for sure?

Great news, never got a chance to snag the original DVD. Slater's rad hairstyle and skating made a real impression on me back when I was an angry young man.

Journey,

You can get this on ioffer.com as well. Some are real, some are copies.

Does the movie play? Are the menus functional?

This "is" from ioffer...

Is that one in the picture a legitimate copy? If so, why is he only charging $6? That seems kind of fishy. But is that what the disc is supposed to look like? The one I got doesn't have any pics on the surface.

That is definitely NOT an official release. 90% of rare dvds that are sold on ioffer are bootlegs. I still buy alot from there and have never had a problem yet. They are pretty good quality....at least the ones I have bought from them.

journey,

That was the only close-up I could find. I wasn't sure if it was legit or not, most are not from these sites, but as 80s rocked has found, most are pretty good. I'm not endorsing them, it's just my opinion... PM me if you have questions... [Smile]

I have a legit copy and will post a pic of the artwork when i can.
Have to admit i loved this film when i was younger it was second only to Thrashin,now when you watch it the pace is a bit slow and the skating is not as great as i remember.But still makes me want to dust off my Mike Mcgill deck and go for a skate when i watch it.
Also like the bits with Tony Hawk as a pizza delivery boy.

For anyone that cares, I just found out that this movie is free (as a member) on Amazon Prime. I'm so happy right now.

Thanks for the heads up! I need to check that out! I've never seen the movie but know there is a cult fowling around here.

Just saw GTC for the very first time. Excellent movie! It started off as a somewhat light-hearted film involving Christian Slater & his friends skateboarding, but soon took a dark turn when his adopted brother unexpectedly died. Then, CS did his own investigation to find out what happened.

Solid story, and the skateboarding scenes were amazing.

Here's hoping we'll get an official Blu-ray release at some point - or at least a Region 1 (U.S.) DVD release

Yeah I enjoy Gleaming The Cube also Nostalgic it's a fun film,never seen the other skateboard flick that springs to mind Thrashin' from 1986 but that is meant to be great fun as well!

This is a good movie that I had to re-watch again when I was older to really appreciate. I was just too young to give it the props it deserved when it came out back in '89. Plus I was a BMX'er as a kid not a skater. So RAD got more re-watches from me at the time. But now that I'm older, I can clearly see this movie blows RAD clear out of the water based just on the plot alone.
