This week on the podcast we watched RAD from 1986, starring Talia Shire and Lori Loughlin. The film’s story focuses on Cru Jones, a young BMX racer, who lives in a small town with his mother and sister. Cru is faced with a tough life changing decision: the qualifying races for Helltrack are the same day as his SATs, which he must take in order to attend college! However, winning Helltrack means a lucrative sponsorship deal and instant fame. Cru chooses the latter option, ignoring his mother’s wishes. Along the way he meets Christian, who he immediately falls in love with after they have an EPIC bike dance off. This movie is full of bike montages, ass sliding montages, training montages, and more montages! If you love BMX, the 80’s, and montages, then this is the movie for you. Do you have what it takes to be RAD?
Next week on the podcast we watch possibly one of the worst sequels of all time, Mortal Kombat Annihilation! Now some of you may look at the first movie as a pile of garbage, but not all of us feel that way. The original was huge and when it came out we couldn’t get enough of it. Then the sequel came out….and it lived up to its own tag line, “Destroy all expectations!” How many sequels do you know of that almost completely recasted all the characters from the first one?
Remember every movie we watch is available for streaming on Netflix or YouTube! [Unless we say otherwise]
