R.I.P. Patrick Swayze

— Posted by John Campea

He has been a favorite of ours around The Movie Blog for years. He’s been in some of the coolest films and his personality and persona became an image unto itself. He was talented, strong, respected and had more class in his little finger than most “movie stars” today can even conceive of.

Patrick Swayze has lost his brave battle with cancer today at 57 years old. The world is less for it.

I think after the ball game is over tonight I’m going to pop in some Point Break. Ride that wave Patrick… ride that wave.

    He was a great actor. And he will be sorely missed.

    Do you think he’s just getting into character for the Ghost sequel?

    Hopefully he and Chris Farley are with Dwayn Zeckemore in that Chippendale Club in the sky.

    Well, there’s no better reason for me to stick in my copy of Red Dawn when I get home from school today. May the man rest in peace, and hope his family is well.

    I learned last night…I couldn’t believe it. He was a god among gods. He will be missed…but never forgotten.
