John G. Avildsen's biopic of rodeo legend Lane Frost, 8 Seconds, comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1 and is preferable to the standard full-frame image. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer and filmographies of the cast and crew. This is a solid release from New Line, although clips of the real Frost in action would have added a great deal to this package.

I have been a fan of Lane Frost's for a long time, I thought that Luke Perry did a excellent job, playing Lane, He knew the part real well. Everytime I watch the movie, at the end, when Lane is killed, I cry, because I know it can happen to any bullrider and it scares me, to think, that anyone, I am friends with, that rides bulls, could have that happen to them, which I hope never does.

My favorite is the bull riding the weding in 1984 and the winning the belt buckle.
