Welcome to The Dan Cave! Have you been working out? You should totally load up on turkey tomorrow because you’re looking great.
By all accounts, 1986 was one of the greatest years in cinematic history. Aliens, Platoon, Top Gun, Big Trouble in Little China, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Blue Velvet, Cobra, Labyrinth — these are but a few of the cinematic treasures that were released unto an unsuspecting public during that fateful year in filmmaking. However, far and away, there is one film that towers above the rest, looming over their legacies like the Colossus of Rhodes over the Aegean Sea. That movie is the 1986 BMX-filled classic Rad.
That’s right — Rad. And today, in a brand new The Dan Cave segment, I am going to tell you why it’s the greatest movie of all time. Or, at the bare minimum, why you need its unique brand of bicycling insanity in your life ASAP.
Do you agree with my assessment? What’s your favorite part of Rad? What other cult classic or underappreciated films would you like me to cover? Let me know in the comments below or tell me on Twitter (@Osteoferocious) using the hashtag #TheDanCave.
