Terrible news came out late last night as we learned that Patrick Swayze died of pancreatic cancer at age 57. We have always been “Crazy for Swayze” here at Everything Action and back on the old Kick Ass Movie Podcast. Swayze starred in huge movies of the 80’s like Ghost and Dirty Dancing but we will always love his triumvirate of action movies: Red Dawn, Point Break and Road House. Road House in particular is one of those movies that I will always watch when it’s on AMC or the like and is just filled with bad assery and classic scenes and lines. Another classic Swayze moment is, of course, the SNL Chippendale sketch with Chris Farley. If this doesn’t make you hurt from laughing then you have no soul:
If you want the ultimate, you’ve got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It’s not tragic to die doing what you love.
