Road House
« on: March 10, 2017, 12:07:37 AM »
I have long been aware of this movie's cultural significance, but I had never seen it. It just so happens that it was on OnDemand, so I decided to give it a go.

I was not prepared for so much cheese. I mean, I enjoyed it, but wow. So many laughable scenes. The karate guy doing a flip on the stage, the cliche "stuntment through glass," the cheesy dialogue... it was so bad it's good.
Listen! Do you smell something?

Yep, so bad it's good.  I think for me it's the redneck ninja that jumps the shark hard, otherwise it's not too bad, good fun.  The Family Guy where Peter Griffin does "Roadhouse" is gold.


RIP Jeff Healey

I wonder how he ended up in the movie?  Swayze must have been buddies with him.  It's awesome that a blind guy writes a ballad called "Angel Eyes" with lyrics like "Girl, you're lookin' fine tonight." and "I could look but I could never touch."  In the video he's playing a double-neck on his lap.  A great talent gone too soon.

I don't like country music, but I don't mean to denigrate those who do. And for the people who like country music, denigrate means 'put down'. - Bob Newhart

So wait, we're spelling it wrong and king is spelling it right? What is going on here? :lol -- BlobVanDam

I thought you'd be bigger.
Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream?

I used to fuck guys like you in prison.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

One of the greatest bad movies. Swayze 100% sold that character.
