It turns out A LOT of people are interested in knowing their star’s favorite movies. 

In just a short couple of days Tony Hawk’s “I Love Movies” video has close to a quarter-million views.

In the Fandango bit, Hawk talks about not just his love for The Naked Gun and The Spy Who Loved Me, but how such films possibly influenced him, getting him into skateboarding and how it affects him as a parent to this day.
