This week on the show, we once again celebrate Bill Paxton by spotlighting a different actor. This time, it’s Gary Busey. We review Predator 2 and Silver Bullet, plus look at Time After Time and Shut In.
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.
