    Don't you know who this is? It's Johnny Utah!

    A shame.

    Looks like I'm watching his movies this weekend.

    Maybe not the best example of Patrick Swayze's career, but I remember watching this SNL bit when it first aired, then again after Farley died. I was always floored by how brave Chris was to have done this sketch shirtless, next to Swayze in his prime.

    Very sad news.

    She's Like the Wind is one of my favourite 80s songs. And Black Dog was an moderately underrated film.

    RIP, Patrick. :(

    He died of the same type of cancer as my grandfather. He was a brave person to fight for so long against so much pain. I'm really going to miss him. :(

    Ha, I saw that on TFLN.
    RIP Patrick. Its kind of funny that the role that stands out the most to me was his character in Donnie Darko.

    Im surprised no one else mentioned that role ITT, but I guess its out of respect, seeing as that character *SPOILER IN WHITE*owned a kiddy porn dungeon.

    But you're right. Fantastic movie. B******* sequel.

    We were talking about his films at work and I almost forgot him in DD. Apparently the people I was talking to never saw DD :eek:

    I told them to go see it. The thing is though you can't really tell anyone his role if they've never seen the movie.

    There is no sequel as far as I'm concerned. BTW, DD looks fantastic on Blu-Ray.

    Amended for spoiler. Appreciate if you edited as the same. :)
    Its like the matrix. There was no sequel. There. was. no. sequel.
    Ugh I would love to see it in Blue Ray.

    Lots of people forget about him in DD, I guess because many havent seen him or DDancing shadows it.

    Edited. :)

    I've grown to like the Matrix sequels over time. I wasn't very happy though when I originally saw them.

    It's epic.

    The thing with DD is that he's not really a main character. He's supporting character that happens to play an important role (like the other supporting characters).

    That movie made Jake Gyllenhaal

    Did you know that Drew Barrymore was an executive producer?

    Where do I need to edit? Your quoted post had no spoiler, other than he has an interesting role, not to be discussed. They can just not read my white text. ;)

    He had a HUGE role, as far as supporting characters go. He was *white spolier* the fire element for manipulated living. But youre right, everyone was important if you know and understand the concept of *White spolier* the manipulated living/ manipulated dead in relation to the artifact and the influence of water, fire, and metal

    I did know that. Its a little known fact.
    Oh, JG owes everything he is to that movie, much as Zach Braff owes himself to Scrubs and Garden State.

    Oh, and the matrix sequels suck AFAIC. Its like if V for Vendetta had a sequel, it would ruin the original for me.
