ESCAPE WITH YOUR LOVE INTO THE WORLD OF ROMANTIC MOVIES!
Road House (1989)
Never underestimate Dalton (Patrick Swayze), a brawny bouncer and expert martial artist who also happens to hold an NYU degree in philosophy. When he's hired to police a rowdy bar in the Midwest and falls in love with Doc (Kelly Lynch), he angers her mean ex-boyfriend Wesley (Ben Gazzara), who vows to win her back.
A classic romance. Patrick at his pinnacle, mullet and all! Of course Dr. Kelly can't resist! Be sure to watch the Special Features, Kelly Lynch keeps commenting about Patrick's hair and their tans! hehe. Sam Elliot is brilliant. Ben Gazzara is wonderful to hate. Yummy blues by Jeff Healey kept D. happy. That and Swayze's Mercedes classic...
Set in the majestically beautiful Scottish highlands in the 1700s, this drama follows legendary swashbuckler Rob Roy (Liam Neeson), a cattle drover who takes out a loan from local nobility to help his townsmen survive. But when bad guy Archibald (Tim Roth) makes off with the money, murders Roy's best friend (Eric Stoltz) and rapes his wife (Jessica Lange), Roy goes on the run, and his flight culminates in a heart-racing sword-fight showdown.
I admit I'm a sucker for most things Scottish but the heartfelt love between the Rob Roy character played exquisitely by Liam Neeson and his wife, played with much adoring passion and strength by Jessica Lange makes this one of my favorite romance movies. "You are so fine to me."---Yum!
