Hi mikey,

What do you mean by 'music related film'? Dramas and documentaries that deal with bands / musicians (such as "Anvil - The Story Of Anvil") or movies that have a prominent sound track or feature cool montage sequences, as discussed in this thread?

For me, "Miami Vice" (the TV series) is the prime example for innovative use of music.

"This is Spinal Tap" is still the best music 'documentary' I've ever seen, another one of my all-time favourites is "Still Crazy", here's the trailer on YouTube.

Hi mikey,

Other than the 'usual suspects' mentioned in the other thread (e.g. The Lost Boys, Cobra, Rocky IV), I absolutely LOVE the soundtrack of an obscure 80s B-movie called "The Wraith" (starring Charlie Sheen).

Read more about "The Wraith" on the IMDB.

Sure, it may not be the most intellectually challenging movie ever made, but I really really like it. The film itself can be described as a "revenge movie" with Sci-Fi and horror / mystery elements. If you're looking for an outstanding plot, story telling or character development, please look somewhere else.

Maybe it's just a great piece of nostalgia for me, but despite all its obvious shortcomings, it works extremely well within its own little universe.

As I said before, the sound track is superb, featuring artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Honeymoon Suite, Lion and Tim Feehan.

Every fan of 80s melodic rock should own the DVD!

"The Wraith" is a pretty cool 80s movie. Good, clean, brainless fun! It is called "Interceptor" in German speaking countries. Found the DVD in a bargain bin a while ago.

I agree Berny, the movies you mention have pretty cool soundtracks. Do you have Cobra on DVD? If so, where did you get it? I only have it on VHS ...

Hi Hysteria,

I bought it from www.cyber-pirates.org - it's the uncut version. Picture quality is fine, too ... go for it!

Best regards,

B.

Another 80s classic with a great soundtrack (Queen): HIGHLANDER (starring Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery). Has some pretty cool camera work for its time, too!

That happened to my tape, too (I recorded it on Video 2000 though). Another classic 80s film (when it comes to its soundtrack) is 'Iron Eagle'. Sure, it has Reagan-era propaganda written all over it, but the songs they used in this movie are really excellent:

Queen - 'One Vision'
Ronnie James Dio - 'Hide In The Rainbow'
King Kobra - 'Iron Eagle'
Adrenalin - 'Road Of The Gypsy'
Twisted Sister - 'We're Not Gonna Take It'

etc.

Bought it on DVD the other day and enjoyed every minute of it (as politically incorrect as this may be ).

You're into revenge movies Berny, right?

But I have to agree that Iron Eagle is a fun movie, showing some of the best shots of fighting jets ever. Which reminds me of another "usual suspect". Who could ever forget the classic Top Gun!?

DANGER ZONE by Kenny Loggins ... CLASSIC STUFF!!!
