I watched it today, really enjoyed it. What a strange little film, wasn't expecting that. Really stunning to look at and the music was great. I kinda agree with Logan though about Michael Pare. He was the only weakness for me. I can't get Nowhere Fast out of my head aghhh [Mad] [Razz]

There'll be no morning for us.. "Streets of Fire" is a flick that gets better everytime you watch it. I can tell it wasn't what you expected, but its unique qualities are a major reason I appreciate it so much. Watch it again in a couple of months and get back to us.

Check out Lee Ving as the villain. Also peruse his youtube stuff as frontman of LA punk act Fear.

There'll be no morning for us.. I'm stoked that you came back and posted that comment. Some of my favorite movies are the ones that got better on the second and even third viewing...

"Look, I know you're gonna be going places with your music and stuff and... and I'm not the kind of guy to be carrying your guitars along for you. But if you ever need me for something... I'll be there."

Does anyone else have the HD-DVD version of "Streets of Fire"?

It is something that true fans of the movie would appreciate. The colors are incredibly vibrant and the sound is crystal clear.

Little tidbit.. the opening performance of "Nowhere Fast" is filmed beautifully .. so awesome when you see the spotlight shine on the audience as Ellen Aim's sings.

Time for a reboot...

"Streets of Fire" is an incredible mixture of music, dialogue, and violence. One of its taglines is "A Rock & Roll Fable." That is a perfect way to describe this combination of the past and fantasy comic book style romance.

 -

The second Ellen Aim and the Attackers take the stage you know you are in store for a unique and power adventure.

 -

The casting was so on...Michael Pare was outstanding as Tom Cody and Diane Lane embodied the essence of Ellen Aim. But the real fun was Willem Dafoe as wacked out Raven and Amy Madigan as Cody's tough sidekick McCoy.

The soundtrack is magic with tunes like "Nowhere Fast", "I Can Dream About You" and "Tonight Is What It Means To Be Young".

But the real kicker for me is the fact I got to see and hear it in HD tonight. The colors popped and the music soared. Reminded me again how special this movie can be when you are in the right mood!

You know most everyone makes fun of Michael Pare's acting skills, but he just fits Tom Cody's persona for "Streets of Fire".

 -

And as Muffy so heatedly mentioned .. the scene with Diane Lane and Michael Pare in the rain is just awesome!

i thought after watching the gruesome torture scenes in mother's day (2010)starring rebecca demornay on wednesday i thought that's the most i've cringed at something i've watched on screen in quite some time,but these gruesome torture scenes pale in comparison to how cringeworthy the trailer (click on to helen_s link above to view) to albert pyuns road to hell is,an unofficial follow up to the classic streets of fire ,boy does it look bad!

i think i'm just going to pretend this movie never happened(bit like i did after i was unfortunate enough to view an american werewolf in paris),after all it is an unofficial sequel,sad really,i know the original flopped at the box office but it's gained a real deserved cult following over the years and it's one of those films i would have loved to seen a follow up to, but done right,not this load of old drivel!

Helen.. thanks for posting that link, but.. Wow.. that trailer was horrible. I mean it doesn't even give me a 'so bad it's good' vibe. I'm a huge "Streets of Fire" fan as most people know, but like Warrior I just can't support this sequel by what I'm reading about it.

Albert Pyun, the auteur of trash, a director who has actually gotten worse as his career has gone on. He makes Uwe Boll look good.

Listening to Nowhere Fast...loudly of course! I just watched the trailer that Helen posted. I hadn't seen the actual trailer for the movie, but I had read about it. After reading the reviews I became curious and thought, "I must see it." Now, after watching the trailer, I still think I need to watch it, because I need to understand what in the world it is???

The trailer looks very strange but I can't say it looks horrible. I'll watch it first and then decide. I did read other reviews on the gruesome stuff, but is it really that bad? I've seen baaad... I assume Helen has as well?

Anyway, back to Streets Of Fire, I hope to watch pretty soon. I need a Pare fix. [Wink]
