Seriously . . .

This is one of the greatest movies - EVER! I saw it on INHD last night, too, and set my DVR to record. So many great scenes :thumbsup:

Full House gal!

Bart Conor!

80s Music!

Forget work, I'm off to watch RAD!

For those of you really want to see RAD and have INHD2 the movie is showing a few times this month. I taped it today. Schedule below:

Watched the intro earlier. Was really excited to see it in hi-def also :)
Damn, wish I had direct tv, love that movie. Hard pressed to pick a favorite betweeen RAD and Gleaming the Cube. Trying to find a dvd of each of them but they usually go for crazy money on ebay. Somebody needs to buy the rights to some of those classic, cheesy 80s flicks that are out of print and reissue them. As popular as the old tv shows are on dvd, you would think the movies would make someone some cash.

more Rad trivia

love it! thanks.

in other trivia news, my pa designed the poster/cover for the movie. I got to sit and watch the computer graphics guys tweak the photo. And as a 22 yr old into bikes, well, it was the sh*t.

BMX bandits was unintentionally funny too

RAD was good, but what about BMX Bandits???? Anyone remember that one? Watched it too many times on HBO when I was a kid.:D
Lol!:)
I remember that one! With Nicole Kidman before she was famous..she looked really young in that movie with a HEAVY Australian accent (it's somehow disappeared now that she's super-famous now)
They tried to make the story for that movie to be serious but seriously...it wasn't:D
I recently saw the movie along as a combo DVD with Evil Knievel..It was so bad that they had to release it with another bad movie lol.

While we're talking about Sports oriented movies, has anyone ever seen that movie "Skateboard" with Tony Alva, and Leif Garret?
Another laugh-fest.

Absolutely fantastic movie.

The Reynolds twins (Rex and Rod...priceless) in their fully choreographed dance sequence with Foxy and Tiger is far and away the most 80's-ist thing you've ever seen...

That is, until two minutes later when Lori Loughlin and Bill Allen dance...on their bikes...to, "Send Me an Angel."

Not to mention Talia Shire. Who, I have to admit is kind of a babe.

Jack Weston as Duke Best.

Ray Walston in his best role since "Johnny Dangerously."

This movie has everything. 2 smiley-winky-face-thumbs up from me. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I was lucky enough to catch this movie last year at a local theatre that plays quirky movies, often 80's, for their midnight showing. They projected it on the big screen from the original vhs, complete with trailer for "The Dirt Bike Kid" starring Peters Billingsley. Best night of my life.

a friend of mine has RAD on laserdisc and made me a DVD copy. if it weren't currently packed away in my storage garage i'd make copies for everyone.

RAD is by far my favorite 80's movie
I need to dig out my dvd copy also. Mine isn't in storage so I'm sure I'd find it faster....

:D
