Road House * Rowdy Herrington (1989)

Dalton (Patrick Swayze!) is a bouncer is clubs that have problems with fighting visitors. His fame spreads all over the USA and he is hired to clean up a place in some small town. His ‘my way or the highway’ method brings some troubles that usually blow over quickly, but in this case, Dalton comes into trouble with the towns rich man who goes very far to show that it is him that runs the town.

The film is a true product of the 1990’ies. The fashion, haircuts, cars and music, even people’s faces somehow look 1990’ies. There is not much of a story, but of course (as it is supposed to be in a 1990’ies film) the introvert pretty boy falls in love ‘untactically’. The film has a lot of bar-fights (of course) and a little bit of other kinds of action.

This is not my type of film, but “Road House” is actually an amusing watch. The acting is good, there is some humor and old-fashioned action. It really reminds of the days when I started to watch films. I have no idea how popular it was at the time and if I saw it before, but “Road House” makes an alright film if you feel like watching an easy watching classic.

Again somewhere

It does not happen to me often that I pick a film that I forgot I saw. “Somewhere” did not make a whole lot of impression, apparently it neither did the first time I saw it. A film without a story. We just see a few days of the life of a famous actor screwing [...]

Wicker weekend

Last weekend I saw both Wicker Man films, the 1973 original and the 2006 remake and I just see that I ‘blogged’ about these films before.

Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
