Thrashin' (1986)

My CBS/FOX VHS tape is in pretty great condition. The trailers included on this one were for Better Off Dead, The Mosquito Coast, The Doctor and the Devils and Peggy Sue Got Married.

This film has it all. A killer soundtrack, amazing plot, gorgeous women and Josh Brolin in top, top form. His mullet and total lack of disregard for shirts left me breathless. Almost as much as that air guitar scene by Hook. He's in his home accompanied by the rest of his Dagger crew, when he just starts going for it. It was pretty intense.

The cast is spectacular. Not only is this one blessed with Brolin, Robert Rusler and Pamela Gidley, you also get the fuck-tastic Sherilyn Fenn from some of the greatest 80's flicks ever made. Just One of the Guys, The Wild Life and The Wraith being career highlights. That woman is smokin' hot in everything!

I hear this one is best viewed alongside Gleaming the Cube. I guess i'll have to see for myself real soon...
