Just watched "Crossroads"... (1986)
Just watched "Crossroads" for the first time... I can remember the trailer for it appearing on an old "Karate Kid" VHS I used to watch all the time when I was a little kid - I was desperate to watch it back then. Anyway, I digress...
What did anybody think of it? To be honest I expected it to be pretty dire but I actually quite enjoyed it. Not much guitar playing in it really. Though surprisingly Ralf (Karate Kid) did a pretty good job at miming the close-up bits (in the sense that it's obvious he's miming but at least he's trying). I realise now that I probably didn't get to see it when I was little due the bit of swearing and shagging etc...
Anyway, I was a bit disappointed that Vai wasn't in it more. To be honest I was half watching it just to see a young Steve play a pointy Jackson. A bit annoyed that the only bit you see him in is the bit that was doing the fileshare rounds a while back.
Anyway, overall I liked it and would recommend it if you don't mind switching your mind off a bit and absorbing some 80’s nostalgia.
Interested to hear peoples views on this btw…
