RIP Bodhi From Point Break


I’m just going to come out and say it. Point Break is probably my favorite movie of all time.

Sure, if I’m asked, I’ll size the person up, and give one of my stock answers. Treasure of the Sierra Madre, The Lord of the Rings, Bonnie and Clyde or Empire Strikes Back. (It’s either go geek or go film geek.) All four are true.

But if I had to take a test where, minute by minute, I had to gauge how much I was enjoying a film, and then compared all the movies I’ve ever watched- it would be Point Break, no contest. (Well, that or Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Just saying.)

So RIP Patrick Swayze. The newspapers are all citing Ghost and Dirty Dancing, but what do they know? The role you poured your entire heart and soul into is none other than surfer-cum-bank-robber Bodhi.

Like you said in Point Break, Swayze, “If you want the ultimate, you’ve got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It’s not tragic to die doing what you love.”

Amen, man.

After the jump, some assorted Point Break videos. Fall in love again.
