This week we go nowhere fast with 1984s Streets of Fire! This lost gem of a movie stars Rick Moranis, Willem Dafoe, Diane Lane, Amy Madigan, and so many more! Streets of Fire tells a Rock and Roll Fabel set in another time and another place (though we think it was the fifties-eighties) and follows ruggedly handsome but monotoned Tom Cody as he agrees to work for his ex-girlfriend's boyfriend/manager from a biker gang known as The Bombers.
The music, the costumes, the action, the adventure, Rick Moranis playing a dweeby hardass, Dafoe as a kidnapper with Bowie-overtones, and Bill Paxton get's punched in the face, all combine to make this the highest rated movie ever on Train Wreck Theater!
Join Paul, Jeannie, Moore, Juno, Aaron, and special guest Peter on this magical ride into the alternative rock-fueled world of Streets of Fire!
