Patrick Swayze movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Dirty Dancing,’ ‘Ghost,’ ‘Road House’
Although his films for the most part weren’t award winners or critical successes, Patrick Swayze starred in a stream of commercially successful movies that have since gone on to attain cult status. Two set the standard for the iconic 1980s Brat-Pack teen movies, and two films that have become a huge part of pop culture. Men wanted to be him, women loved him and he is one of the actors that comes to mind as one we lost much too soon.

Patrick Wayne Swayze was born on August 18, 1952, in Houston, the second of five children. His mother owned a dance studio, and Swayze became an accomplished dancer, although he was bullied in school for his training in classical ballet. As a teen, he honed several skills besides dance, including ice skating, acting in school plays, martial arts and football. His hopes for a football scholarship were dashed when he injured his knee.

Wedded Blisters: ‘Seal Team’ Stunt Coordinators Still Work ‘Hot and Heavy’ After 25-Year Marriage

Wedded Blisters: ‘Seal Team’ Stunt Coordinators Still Work ‘Hot and Heavy’ After 25-Year Marriage
A version of this story about Peewee Piemonte and Julie Michaels first appeared in the Down to the Wire issue of TheWrap’s Emmy magazine.

It took two stunt coordinators to execute one of the most daring maneuvers this season on the CBS military drama “Seal Team.” To stage a Spie Rig, or a “special patrol insertion/extraction,” in which six soldiers were strapped to a Spie rope dangling from a helicopter and pulled off a mountain ridge, the show needed one coordinator in the air and another on the ground with the guys. Communication between the two would be key to keep things safe.

Thankfully, Julie Michaels and Peewee Piemonte are in perfect sync. That’s because they’ve been married for 25 years and have been working together “hot and heavy” since 1998. But for the first time this year, they’ve been Emmy-nominated jointly for their stunt work on “Seal Team,

The ‘Fast and Furious’ Movies, Ranked from Worst to Best

Now updated with Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw. The Fast and Furious films are a fascinating franchise in Hollywood history. What began as fairly simple Point Break redux that swapped sexy street racers for sexy surfers has since evolved into a multi-billion dollar international powerhouse that's as driven by its earnest themes of loyalty as it is bullets, babes, and brawn. Over the years, the franchise has passed through the hands of many filmmakers with an amorphous, ever-fluctuating cast, leading to a series of films that often feel detached and tonally disparate from each other, …

‘Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw’ Review: Dir. David Leitch (2019)

Universal

The Fast and the Furious is such a curious franchise when digested as a whole. What started out as a Point Break rehash involving the world of street racing and crime spiralled into increasingly absurd espionage tales where your regular street racers suddenly became hackers, weapons experts, and so forth. The franchise embraced its stupidity and drove with it, and with the addition of Dwayne Johnson in part 5, the next following 3 instalments hurtled towards a billion dollar series.

With the 8th instalment, one aspect of the film stood out head and shoulders above the rest, and that was the unexpected chemistry between Johnson and part 7’s bad guy turned antihero, Jason Statham. That, coupled with reported tension between Johnson and Fast & Furious lead man Vin Diesel, gave rise to this here spin-off. What may have been a desperate grasp for audience’s dollar, has gestated into an instant classic buddy action comedy.

All 9 ‘Fast & Furious’ Movies Ranked From Worst to Best, Including ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ (Photos)
The “Fast & Furious” franchise is easy to dismiss as big, silly or even bad — but it’s definitely awesome. The distinction may seem nebulous, but measuring each film’s success or failure has less to do with whether or not you believe what’s happening on screen than whether what’s happening has blown your mind, scrambled your expectations or shown you something so preposterous that you have to admire it. Ironically, the series began as a more mundane version of Kathryn Bigelow’s thriller about surfing bank robbers, “Point Break” but it’s grown so far beyond the parameters of what in 1991 already seemed ridiculous that it’s impossible to evaluate them on a scale of anything from zero to 60 — the former number being the resting vibration of Vin Diesel’s throaty baritone, and the latter the circumference of Dwayne Johnson’s biceps.

Fast & Furious Writer Won't Say No to Taking Franchise Into Space
Could we see Dom and the rest of the gang head to space in a future Fast and Furious movie? Screenwriter Chris Morgan refuses to rule it out. As silly as that may sound, this isn't the first time the question has come up and, when looking at the history of this unlikely franchise, it doesn't seem all that impossible, in the grand scheme of things. While it may not be happening in Fast and Furious 9, don't be too surprised to find out a future plot involves some crazy space mission of sorts.

Chris Morgan has scripted five previous entries in the franchise, including Tokyo Drift, Fast Five, Fast & Furious, Fast & Furious 6, Furious 7 and The Fate of the Furious. He also penned the upcoming spin-off, Hobbs & Shaw, which is set to arrive in theaters this weekend. During a recent interview, he was asked about taking the

'Point Break': THR's 1991 Review
On July 12, 1991, 20th Century Fox unveiled the Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves actioner Point Break, which would go on to become a cult hit. The Hollywood Reporter's original review is below:

It is 100 percent pure adrenaline — what the ads don't tell you is that generic baloney is one of the major building blocks of this kind of rush stuff. While the critics may yammer, Point Break delivers the thrills, spills and crunches its action-hungry audience demands.

Likely to ride a decent if not deep summer boxoffice wave, it's the kind of high-concepter that ...
