Watched Thrashin' again this morning for the first time in awhile.. definitely an entertaining flick with an against the odds romance intertwined.

Great skateboarding stunts throughout with an edgy style to them that seemed missing for me in "Gleaming The Cube". Though Cube's seemed extremely dangerous as well .. they were just had too much of a planned feel to them for me.

And the Thrashin' soundtrack is quite underrated..

When "That's Good" by Devo starts playing during the ramp scene you realize early on it is time to pay attention.

My fav tune from the movie is the gem "Staring Down the Demons" by Animotion.

But "Let the Love Begin" fits well with the romantic scenes between Corey and Chrissy.

Oh Ronnie .. Thrashin' also has the France Joli tune "Don't Think Twice" from Modern Girls which totally made me think of you and our discussion about our quest to obtain "Angels In the Night". btw, did you ever find it?

Several more tunes .. but those are a few that stuck with me.

hey valley, angels in the night still hasn't made it into my collection. [Frown]

i wonder what that song sounds like other than the angels in the night part haha. 'don't think twice' a great song.

i have this movie but i don't ever think to watch it. my daughter seems to like it though. probably because she knows Brolin from the Gooonies. [Smile]

for a minute i thought this was the one with lori loughlin in,but i'm getting my skateboarding films mixed up with my bmx films,that's rad.
i wouldn't mind seeing both of them,as they both sound like good fun!

hows this rate for entertainment value against the only other 80s skateboarding film i can think of - 1989's gleaming the cube!

I'm a fan of "Gleaming the Cube", Slater and wicked skateboard stunts, but there is truly no comparison really. For 80's skateboarding .. Thrashin' is where it is at!

Warrior .. let me turn your double feature plans into a slamming Triple Feature:

1. Thrashin' - skateboarding

2. RAD - BMX biking

3. Airborne - rollerblading

And if you are really digging in for a night of X .. add in:

4. Winners Take All - motocross

[Cool]

i'm going to check out rad,winners take all and airborne on youtube valley as someone's posted the complete movies on there.

i'm going to start with rad,this looks a pretty cool movie,bmx biking,lori loughlin and with john farnham on the soundtrack,can't be bad!

rad - http://youtu.be/4eWLcoDRgvQ

as for thrashin i'm going to grab myself a region 1 dvd copy of it from ebay,the dvd's been discontinued but it's still reasonably cheap on there.

i've got a good gut feeling that i'm going to like it!

Valley > Spooky that you mention Winners Take All, I picked that up last week having never seen it before. Not had chance to watch yet but will this week at some point. [Smile]

MGM HD in the UK have been showing Thrashin' a lot this year. I wish one of the HD channels would air RAD over here though, one of my all time faves.
