Overview

Walter Hill's tale about a young white guitarist and an old blues man, Crossroads, arrives on DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. English and Japanese subtitles are accessible. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence, but it would be fair to say the film has never looked better on home video than it does on this disc.

I would buy this movie in a minute for however much money cause I Love It.. However I am not going to buy it on VHS.. I dont understand why this movie is not on DVD and it needs to be.. I will buy it just as soon as it goes on DVD though I am sure your not worried about my 20 dollars and this movie with your whole buissiness going on but I thought it would be worth a try to put my two since in thank you.

I first happened on this movie on television by accident. I was entranced and wanted to see the whole thing. When I was finally able to rent it, I was captivated and watched it several more times. Each time it deepened and grew on me. It captures more than any other I've seen the spirit of all music, but particularly jazz. It's got to be put on DVD before I wear out my tape.

Love the movie - waiting for it to come out on DVD. As soon as it does - it will become a part of my favorites collection.

This movie is in my all time favorites. Not so much for the acting but the blues music is what makes it a worth while picture. With blues music back in the current limelight with all the PBS Blues specials by Martin Scorsese it's a wonder Sony/Columbia doesn't release this movie on DVD now. I've been waiting for years for it to be released. Hopefully someone who is a decision maker in the movie industry will read these reviews and put the movie on DVD. With the dying format of VHS and all the retail stores dropping VHS from the shelves, Crossroads will die with it. For those who wondered about the Steve Vai guitar duel at the end of the movie, Ralph Maccio's guitar part was musically played by Arlen Roth, a well know guitar video instruction player in the music industry. He's also toured with many bands over the years. Please release the DVD soon before it's gone forever.

The storyline is haunting and the music makes you itch to play as well as just listen. I love this movie and I've seen it a million times. I know every word in the dialog for this movie because I have watched it so many times.

An excellent movie for musicians and music lovers. I cannot however, get over the Karate kid as the main lead. He looks like a complete dork playing the guitar and is completely non-believable. Every time he speaks his dialogue, he makes me want to vomit. Steve Vai's guitar music is exceptional.

The world is waiting! This movie is very great. An inspiration for the upcoming musicians in the world! This IS how Delta Blues is!

Absolutely fantastic film for blues lovers. as stated from everyone in these reviews watched this one till the tape wore out good storyline greatmusic NEEDS TO BE ON DVD 5.1. DO THE PRODUCERS OF DVD'S READ THESE
Guest More than 1 year ago
This movie is stylish, funny, and above all MUSICALLY SATISFYING. I too agree that it needs to be on DVD. Maybee Steve Vai will take care of it and add some vintage footage of his playing (Alcatraz,Roth,Zappa,etc)HINT HINT!!

I saw this movie a few years back, and it is one of my all time greats (along with a lot of other people)but for the love of god WHERE'S THE DVD???? I will not buy it on VHS, as it just does not do the movie justice, and I already have it on video from the TV. Somebody needs to get this out on DVD, and make a lot of people very happy.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Come on, this movie is absolutely awesome. I am tempted to buy it on VHS as I have always been but that wouldnt suit my collection. I am waiting for it on DVD and that is the bottom line. There is no reason why it should not already be.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Everyone should see this flick. I have been waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting for the dvd...WTF??????
Guest More than 1 year ago
A great movie, but I refuse to buy any moe VHS tapes. I am waiting for this to come out on DVD and then I will but it right away.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I refuse to buy this great movie unless it is on DVD. I will buy two of them then! By the way, Steve Vai rules!
Guest More than 1 year ago
Geez, I really like this movie cause it has a great story, cool music, and it's just awsome to watch for any musician or blues fan, but I really don't want to watch it on VHS. VHS does movies no justice. Movies are meant to be on DVD and in 5.1 surround.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I agree with the others here that this film should be on DVD, it's one film that you can watch over and over. So, pretty please with sugar on top.
Guest More than 1 year ago
I agree with what every one else has said about ''Crossroads''. It is truly a great movie about the blues and every guitarist should see this film. It is also a shame to see movie studios making considerably lower quality film content available on DVD, but not good movies such as Crossroads.

I want to add my voice here: There is a large audience that wants this movie on DVD. Execellent music and story - put it out on DVD... It's a classic
Guest More than 1 year ago
As I said before a must for DVD. Since I was a kid I have not found a movie that moved me more with a story based on blues music.
Guest More than 1 year ago
It brings it all home, It brings all your senses to the outer levels, Its hard to believe that it still is not out on dvd, Its a crime to all blues lovers around the world
Guest More than 1 year ago
