TLH Episode 78 – John Carpenter’s Vampires and Near Dark

This week on episode one of Bill Paxton memorial month, we take a look at a couple of vampire westerns with Near Dark (yes, Doug finally gets to talk about it) and John Carpenter’s Vampires. We also discuss The Monster, He Never Died, as well as some other randomness.

Note: we do NOT talk about Logan at the end of the episode, despite what we claim. That segment went on long enough that we decided to make it its own bonus episode.

Bill Paxton In Memorium

I was off of the internet for most of yesterday as I was playing video games and just having a relaxing Sunday.  Imagine my shock when I check Facebook and see that Bill Paxton passed away.  Talk about my childhood dying.

I think the first thing I remember him in was Weird Science as the asshole brother Chet.  Then the more and more I saw of him I realized I loved this guy.  He always put so much into each of his characters.  They were always varied but there was always still a charm to him.  I feel like he was like a real life Han Solo.  Just that charisma.

As I got older and sadly we started to see less and less of him, as Hollywood is want to do, my senses would prick up if I saw he was in something.  I would always watch just because I knew even if the movie/tv show sucked that he would bring so much to his role.  I about blew a gasket when I saw he was coming to Agents of Shield for a multi episode arc.  More Paxton is always a great thing.  And of course he nailed it.

So this news has made me very somber.  So many memories through out my movie watching life.  Always more Paxton.  Always.
