I just realized Red Dawn is the only Patrick Swayze movie I've ever seen, and until today I had no idea he was in it. Yep, no Ghost, no Dirty Dancing, no Roadhouse. No point in changing that now.

  1. You should see To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar (it's the only Swayze movie that I like. Plus he's in drag along with Wesley Snipes and John Leguizamo. You can't go wrong there!

  2. Never saw that as it looked like a remake of The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, which has The Matrix's Agent Smith in drag.

  3. Why the hell have you not seen Road House? Go watch it now. He rips out a dude's trachea, for Christ sakes!

  4. See, I would have thought you saw Donnie Darko, or been forced to see The Outsiders when you were a lad.

  5. I loved Deathproof, with Swayze as a serial killer.

  6. John - I'm reliable told that was Kurt Russell in Deathproof, Understandable mistake as they share the same hair.

    Matt - Donnie Darko is the one I want to see. As for The Outsiders, I read it, but can't recall seeing it.

  7. Oh. Dumb, dumb, dumb comment by me.

    Forget I said that.
