Road House

Maybe the cheesiest movie of all time. But still hard not to watch when it's on tv. Which by the way, was recently picked as the movie that is on tv more than any other movie.

"Pain Don't Hurt....but death is final."

My favorite Swayze movie. Yes, it was dumb, but I probably watched it 50 times in college.

This is tough for a Buckeye to say, but "WOLVERINES!"

A good flick with a pretty good cast. We watched this one quite a few times in college too.

Ghost is a fun flick, but my favorite Swayze was definitely "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar". Who can resist a movie in which studly action heroes Swayze, Weslie Snipes, and John Leguizamo believably (and hysterically) portray drag queens?

I can't be the only person that enjoys this movie when it pops up on TBS or TNT every few months on a Saturday afternoon.

Incredibly formulaic, you know how it is going to end, but you can't stop watching. Great background filler while you are doing housework or folding laundry.

Randy Travis also does a fine job in this film, along with Meat Loaf of all people.

I didn't realize he was in the video for this song until my husband mentioned it.

You have to really look for him at first--he's in the red jacket--but he's more obvious near the end, when he takes off his jacket (revealing a grey shirt).

I never got around to checking out his last project, the A&E series "The Beast". It sounded interesting and he got great reviews for it.

Swayze was from the Houston area-south east in the refinery area. Think the backdrop of Urban Cowboy in the 50's and 60's. His mother was a long-time dance instructor at a local community college (San Jacinto CC). My buddy took classes from her. Nice lady, good family. Patrick would host benefits/recitals for the college. No star-tripping at all.

In one of the better MASH episodes, a young Swayze played Pvt Gary Sturgis who is intent on donating blood to his wounded buddy. He later learns that he is unable to donate because the docs discovered he has leukemia. Good performances all around.

His first big break was in Skatetown USA, in which he's the leader of a gang of evil roller skaters. It's classic late 70's cheese.

I was hardly a Swayze fan, but Donnie Darko was a great 'low budget' marvel. eleven:fourteen was similar in that regard, and came later(?) but seems much less well known.

If you haven't seen it, even if you're not a 'fan', I can heartily recommend it. Part produced by and also starring Hilary Swank. It's smart, funny, and in an age where movies seem to run at 120 minutes standard, it's pleasingly short, at just 86 minutes.

A cheesy post-apocolyptic film. It was trying to cash in on the success of the Mad Max films. As a huge fan of the genre, I tracked down a copy of this on DVD and it's now a proud part of my collection. If you like bad movies, you should check this out.

While I enjoy Road House as a good guilty pleasure, my favorite of his "bad" movies was Next of Kin. Course, coming from good ole boy roots probably helps my enjoyment.

But it does reinforce one of my rules for villains: Don't f**k with any tightly knit family based group unless you are willing to f**k with them ALL.

Youngblood. I caught this recently on late-night. It's one of those kinds of movies that you get caught up in and can watch every so often. Swayze plays the wiser, older kid, that's waiting to break into the big leagues.
