Which should be watched?

Postby Sticky Spice » Sat Jun 06, 2009 2:35 pm

For various reasons I missed the following movies that all happen to star Patrick Swayze. Each seem to have a pop culture following of some sort - should I bother?

Having to choose, I'd go with Point Break.

Watch all three, but in order...

Red Dawn
Road House
Point Break

Red Dawn is the best of the three and it ain't even close.

Metroid knows what's up. That's the exact order I'd put them in.

Point Break is awfully bad and good. Amazingly terrible acting but overall a decent movie
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

i've still never seen Roadhouse...i really need to one of these days

Swayze is also pretty badass in Uncommon Valor (Vietnam POW rescue movie with Gene Hackman)

I actually got sucked into Point Break the other night. After all these years, I still really enjoyed it. I didn't realize that James Cameron produced it.

All three are worth watching and were three of my favorites growing up. I'd rank them 1) Point Break, 2) Road House and 3) Red Dawn.

Did you know Red Dawn was the very first PG-13 movie? :-)

I thought Dreamscape was?

Sounds like I should watch all three. Red Dawn has a pretty low score on IMDB - that's why I was hesitant.

One of my favorite lines in movie history: Keanu Reeves telling the girl he's falling in love with, "I've never felt this way about anyone before". :-b
