Our Rewind Rad Racing Team has grown quite a bit over the last few years.. I remember a time when it seemed like it was only Devo and myself that gushed over this treasure of a film.

 -

We are always looking for new team members and with August signaling in the month of the RAD 25th Anniversary event.. the time is now.

So start on page 1 of this thread and check the links. By the time you get back here.. you will realize that if you are going to shell out any coin for any of the movies recently mentioned in the Thrashin' thread.. it just has to be for RAD!!

This RAD posting doesn't go up without sadness though.. we do have one honorary team member - Ronnie - who's just not impressed .. [Big Grin] .. seems this is another movie where she owns the soundtrack, but has no interest in exercising those demons from the last time she danced with Bart Taylor.

But I'm not gonna give up, so I've decided to at least dedicate this tune from one of our fav 80's hidden gem groups:

 - (RL - let's walk this sucker!)

"And you're going to pick me up how? On that dumb bike?"

Well... Yeah!! [Cool]

Thanks my Valdude. [Smile]

Great song, we both love 3-Speed. I remember wanting this movie to be on real dvd so badly, and then I watched it years ago and I was (like you said) not impressed haha.

I am going to give it another shot for ya.

The RAD 25th Anniversary event was a smashing success! Saw the film on the big screen, scored some free swag, watched BMX races and amazing freestyle shows, and rode alongside the stars of the film as they narrated a tour of the film locations. Could not ask for a better celebration! Go here here for photos/stories from attendees. Now we need to start planning the 30th!

Update:

Ronnie finally gave "RAD" another chance.. unfortunately she still hasn't quite joined our Rad team, but I appreciate that she gave it another viewing. I'll keep working on it. [Wink]

I love this movie. Still not thrilled it isn't out on Blu Ray and DVD.

Ronnie.. and I thought it was because I over-rotated! [Big Grin]

Uh .. that pic above .. I don't get why people think the school dance scenes in "RAD" are a bit goofy. [Wink]

"Kid tested, RAD approved!" [Big Grin]

I decided to watch an old John Wayne movie that I enjoy today called "The Undefeated" from 1969. It opens with some incredible stunts and to my surprise Hal Needham (director of RAD) name popped up on screen. I knew the guy was a legendary stuntman, but I never researched him on IMDb until today. He did a ton of work with John Wayne and Burt Reynolds. He even helped write "Smokey and the Bandit". [Big Grin]

Thought it was cool and wanted to share.

Why is "Rad" not on DVD/Blu-ray? It's still not available.

I've tried to watch this over the years in the streaming format, but the print is so bad (probably because it's nothing more than a VHS rip) that it's borderline-unwatchable, and I can't get past the first couple of minutes.

Too bad, because this seems like an iconic '80's film - it's just simply not available in a decent format for viewing these days.
