ROAD HOUSE

Ok folks...Let's pay a little tribute to The Swayze:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Below is from Off Topic: A Movie So Bad, It's Good - The Legacy of Road House

The year was 1989. Communism was in its last throes and the decade of the 80s, a decade most notable for Miami Vice, Mr. T., Reaganomics and ending the Disco era, was winding down. Out of this darkness came beacon for American pop culture. Out of the neon, the pastel colors and the Topsiders came Road House.

Road House isn't just a movie about a guy kicking the crap out of a bunch of henchmen at a bar in a small town in Missouri... okay, it is about that. But it's also so much more. Road House is mullets of various shapes and sizes. Road House is advanced martial arts showcased in a environment of beer cans and pool tables. Road House is using a Bigfoot in order to destroy a local car dealership. And finally, Road House is a philosophical journey into our inner soul.

Road House is not a movie. Road House is a film.

Diane's notes:

(Ah, yeah, well. Can you tell that I've been distracted?)

Potluck, social hour starts at 7PM.  I'm not sure what I'll serve.  It might be grilled, Margherita pizzas, or it might be fried rice, or maybe even both (It depends how well I manage my time during the day).  Movie starts around 8PMDessert is served after the movie. I plan to make an apricot pie--but my plan is just a plan.  Remember to bring drinks for yourself (& maybe some to share), & bring them already chilled if you want them cold.

      There should be a drinking game to ROAD HOUSE. Every time you see a punch on screen, you take a shot.

    Certainly this movie is a better one than most we watch--more of a Bad Lite brew that a novice BMNer might readily suck down. But it was still a very fun night with folks who are ready to mock anything shown on the big screen.

    I had my doubts, but then I was perswayzed.

    Everyone, please take our Release of Liability seriously tonight as there is a little known phenomenon known by various names, such as the Swayze Flu or Swayze Fever, Road House Rash, Mullet kin Tyre, etc. that is contagious upon viewing or even considering to view a Patrick Swayze movie ... and, yes, you can still catch the Road House Rash by watching "Ghost", but it's a little harder to detect, or "Dirty Dancing", most assuredly, or "Pointe Break", you get the point, etc. etc. etc.

      wow, why didn't anybody warn us about this earlier? Sigh, well, I will just have to force myself to take the risk. See you soon

    I've emailed my address to attendees. If it doesn't reach you & you need it, please post here, and I'll try again. (But check that it didn't land in your junk mail first)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
