Profound questions about "Roadhouse"
Edited on Sat Dec-11-10 05:06 PM by LynneSin
Seriously, how can these backwood towns have enough population to support a club that has a 'Studio 54' type crowd?

And think about it, if someone was shaking you down for money, at what point do you ask yourself "Perhaps I should call the state police or the feds". Brad Wesley isn't that big of a shit that he controls the state or the US Government. If he was you'd think he'd live someplace nicer than Jasper.

Could I attend NYU and get a degree in being a Cooler?

And seriously, your best friend had the shit beat out of him and you know you are going to the hospital, wouldn't you take him along instead of leaving him at the one place where the bad guys would show up to finish the job.

And if you're gonna use a car as a decoy to get into Brad Wesley's place wouldn't you use the old beater and leave the Mercedes someplace safe. I mean that old beater was a fricking tank classic detroit bomb. Would cause way more damage and wasn't worth shit.

BTW Blueray shows off Patrick Swayze's bad skin and makes Kelly Lynch look more orange than John Boehner. But Sam Elliot gets hotter.

2. And btw if a Polar Bear was slowly falling towards me I'd do something other than shoot at it
Perhaps run or put my hands out in hopes of slowing the fall.

17. What?
Side note, Dalton and Eliot were the two sides in some philosophies. It misses on a few points.

22. Mike Nelson also did a Roadhouse-based "RiffTrax"...
...and while some of his "solo bits" had their moments, they seldom equal what he calls the "3 Riffer Editions" (Nelson with MST3K's Kevin Murphy & Bill Corbett).



Road House

This is it the best movie ever made about a world-famous bouncer and his epic struggle with the evil owner of the local J.C. Penney. Patrick Swayze is at his most shirtless as Dalton, a bouncer who is as comfortable quoting Zen aphorisms as he is kicking drunken men in the head.

The incomparable Sam Elliot is hilarious as Swayze's grizzled but lovable mentor, growling out lines like "I'll sleep when I'm dead," and running his weathered hand through his long, gray, greasy hair. And Kevin Tighe (of Lost) as the owner of the titular roadhouse delivers one of the strangest performances ever committed to film.

Road House is the comic mother lode and Mike takes advantage of every smashed beer bottle, throat kick, and monster car smash-up in his hilarious running commentary.
