5 Movies That Will Make You Believe Kevin Bacon Is The Hero We Deserve

- Page 1

Whether he's saving a town through the magic of dance, or saving the world from burrowing alien worms, one thing that's undeniable is that Kevin Bacon is completely awesome.


Let's take a look at some of his performances that we love most.

1) Footloose (1984)

Paramount Pictures

The story of a town that outlaws dancing and the teenage hero who would save them all, this has easily remained a favorite for Bacon fans everywhere.


It's cheesy on all the right levels, Kenny Loggins delivers a killer soundtrack as usual, and Bacon absolutely shines in the lead role. It's such a classic it's even referenced in modern blockbusters like Guardians of the Galaxy.


2) A Few Good Men (1992)

Columbia Pictures

A military courtroom drama about two marine cadets who are accused of killing a fellow trainee, Kevin Bacon plays the prosecuting attorney, Capt. Jack Rose.

Columbia Pictures

While not the star of the show, Bacon demonstrates his acting chops in great form here, as he manages to keep up with a loaded cast of Tom Cruise, Jack Nicholson, Demi Moore, and Kiefer Sutherland.

The Trailer For The Mr. Rogers Documentary Has Been Released And It's Absolutely Heartwarming

Few things are as sacred as Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. The classic PBS children's show was on for 31 seasons, and even though it hasn't been filmed since 2001, it's still beloved to this day. Fred Rogers hosted the show with a kindness that can best be described as neighborly - at least that's what I think he would want to be described as. He was sweet, caring, and honest with his viewers, teaching them all the things they needed to learn.Every show started with the same song, while Rogers pulled on a cozy cardigan and asked us all if


11 Disney Reboots That Are Getting Made, Whether You Want Them Or Not

Disney movies were one of those things that you treasured with all of your heart. If you were anything like me, you had a collection of those white puffy cases on VHS and were really proud of how many you had accumulated. The thing is, Disney has continued making great movies in recent years, even though they don't exactly look how we remember them looking. Sure, everything is a little bit more 3D and perhaps slightly too realistic, but the stories will still hit you right in the heart. However, lately they have been turning their sights onto something a


'Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory' Star Returns To TV And Everyone Was Freaking Out

Watching Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid was basically a requirement. Pretty much everyone had to watch it, otherwise everyone else would think you were crazy. Seeing all those bratty kids roam around the chocolate factory, demanding Wonka explain all of his eccentric genius is one of those things that I think was supposed to make me think Wonka was being mean, but really it just made me hate those kids - even Charlie. I know he was technically the hero of the story, but even he broke off from the group and invaded a space he

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.
