Posted 29 Nov 2012Matt,
You're dead on. I was thinking that myself while putting that together. That's high even by today's standards and that was what - 25 years ago? Ha. Amazing. On small 1/4 pipes too!
Posted 11 Oct 2012Wow, I'm surprised to see people upset about this. I'd have thought everyone would be excited about something like this, even if they had no intention of buying a frameset. Haro was where it all started. What's wrong with celebrating 30 years? I've never been a collector myself, so I could be wrong here, but how does a reissue (they're clearly identified as such)cheapen the original?
I can see die-hard collectors being interested in only the original 1982 f/f, but I can see people with some extra cash to spend wanting something like this for their display. Other sports do this kind of thing all the time.
As the OP said, it's not for everyone. I just don't understand the heated negative feedback for something like this.
Posted 31 Aug 2012Owl, wow, that's crazy. I wonder if they're even working on it. How does that even happen? Oh well. One of us should meet up with Fiola and Martin and have them do some commentary and we can fit it in over a bootleg!
Posted 30 Aug 2012Ha, yeah I completely agree with Helltrack being cheesy and over the top. As I mentioned in my earlier post, I thought the qualifying races were exciting. I don't know why they didn't stick with something like that for the climax. Or even a traditional bmx race.
I wish they'd do a Rad blu ray and have Eddie and Martin do a commentary and have some extended or deleted scenes. They've released everything else on blu ray, but for some reason, no Rad. Actually, it has never even been officially released on DVD. Was there any mention of this at the reunion?
Posted 29 Aug 2012I've got to respectfully disagree. Like Lee said, Rad was the first time I saw any freestyle tricks being performed on video. I remember my jaw hitting the floor seeing what cherrypickers and miami hoppers looked like in motion!
While I thought the movie was great at 16, it certainly hasn't held up all that well. However, the opening and ending credits are timeless. I also thought the qualifying races were really well done. I thought they were better than the Hell Track race at the end.
