It’s hard to believe that, as of yesterday, it has been seven years since Patrick Swayze passed away. I was never one of those girls to worship things like Dirty Dancing so didn’t quite appreciate Swayze in the same way that other girls my age seemed to at the time. But I was transformed into a bit of a Swayze fan after finally witnessing the genius that is ROAD HOUSE for the first time last December. 😉
Here are My Top Ten Patrick Swayze Movies, counting down to my favorite (these are the only movies of his that I’ve seen):
2. Road House
Youngblood’s on my must see list – love Point Break!
Can’t beat Point Break! Youngblood is a must-see for 80’s lovers. : )
Great post! My favorite role of his was actually from a TV mini-series called “North and South”…he was absolutely marvelous in it. You should look into it 🙂
Thanks! : ) I remember North And South on TV. I never really watched any TV mini-series like that (other than The Thorn Birds for some reason). Maybe I WILL check it out! : )
What! He was in Red dawn, damn… didn’t realise that. My pick would be Dirty dancing no 1, yes I love that movie as a guy 😆 and Donnie Darko. He was perfect there.
Lol. Yep – he was in Red Dawn. Wow! Guys like Dirty Dancing? That’s cool. I do like it more than I’d ever admit. ; ) And I’d love to watch Donnie Darko again.
Lists like this make me realise that I haven’t seen enough Swayze movies.
And I’ve seen way more than I expected! : ) Just wish I’d managed to watch To Wong Foo before making this list… Hope you’ve seen my top three at least! : )
Where the heck is To Wong Foo?!?
Lol. The ONE Swayze movie I was hoping to see before making this list. But didn’t manage it… : )
You left out To Wong Foo. It was a great movie. Better than half this list. I like him as an actor but his movies are very iffy. Some great, some blah. To Wong Foo is a must see.
Yeah, To Wong Foo is the only Swayze movie I’ve not seen that I do want to & was hoping I’d manage to see before making this list. Plus I also like John Leguizamo. Will watch it someday! : )
Donnie Darko is great, but so friggin strange! Love PS – how can seven years have gone so fast?
I really should watch Donnie Darko again – I liked it a lot but not seen it since. It really is hard to believe it’s been 7 years since Swayze died. : (

Fantastic list. Swayze passed away 7 years ago, but for me it was like yesterday. For me Ghost was THE movie of his. His personality there just goes on and on. It’s unforgettable.
Thanks! : ) Agreed that he was great in Ghost – that one is a bit underrated when it comes to his films. In many ways it’s actually the best one.
