I still love Johnny Castle

I'm sad that Patrick Swazye has died. One of the first movies I remember seeing him in is "The Outsiders". We watched it in Mrs. Porter's 6th grade Gifted and Talented Reading class after we had finished reading the book. My favorite Patrick Swayze movie is of course Dirty Dancing. In junior high, though we were probably too young to be watching, we were all obsessed with Johnny Castle! I remember when my parents took me and a friend to Six Flags one summer, I bought the movie poster as my souvenir. I still cannot hardly flip past it if I find it on tv while channel surfing. I'm still waiting for my "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" moment in life...

It seems like I was just blogging about this darn movie, but I do still really like Point Break. Swayze was the bad guy bank robber in this movie... If you haven't seen it I may have just ruined it for you.
And of course Road House. Not great cinema, but a super buff Swayze cracks some heads, so what's not to like.

I know this could be controversial, but I'm not a huge "Ghost" fan. It kind of freaked me out a little.


What is your favorite Patrick Swayze movie?

This going to shock you (as if me weighing in on a movie issue isn't enough to shock you!) but I really liked Ghost and just never have cared much for dirty dancing. I think P.S. looked fabulous, don't get me wrong, but the show it's self didn't do much for me! '

I am really sad for he and his family!

I liked Ghost too. I watched a Barbara Walters special last night on ABC about Patrick and his wife. I was bawling when it was over. I'm so sad for his wife.
