REDLETTERMEDIA VIDEO: Hey, kids! It's every face punch in ROADHOUSE

Press Play By Redlettermedia | Press Play February 20, 2012 at 9:27AM

[EDITOR'S NOTE: The comic geniuses over at Redlettermedia have created this forensic catalog of every right cross, chambered strike, backfist, hammerfist, haymaker, shovel hook, uppercut, trachea rip and jab thrown in Patrick Swayze's classic "Roadhouse." You have to admire the sheer length of this — 45 seconds of distilled violence. I suppose we should call this piece a somewhat circuitious tribute to the late Ben Gazzara — who died this month at the age of 81. His gratuitously evil turn as Brad Wesley transforms a bad movie into a good-bad movie. Watching him get his ass kicked in this film is transforming. Thanks, Ben. And thanks to everyone at Redlettermedia for creating and posting it.]

You have to admire the sheer length of this — 45 seconds of distilled face-punching goodness. I suppose we could call this piece a somewhat circuitious tribute to the late Ben Gazzara — who died this month at the age of 81. His evil turn as Brad Wesley is so gratuitous that it transforms a bad movie into a good-bad movie. Watching him get his ass kicked in this film is simply divine. Thanks, Ben. And thanks to everyone at Redlettermedia for creating and posting it. Check out their site here. If you haven't seen his "Plinkett" reviews, you might want to watch them this evening after work. You don't want to get fired for wasting company time.]
