Game over, man. Game over.

This evening has been blighted with the news of the passing of the master of the one-liners, Bill Paxton, at the all-too-young age of 61. A hell of a supporting actor, he may not be a famous name to many, but to genre fans he was legendary, particularly those of us who lived through the ’80s.

Aw hell, 2017 is fast becoming as brutal as 2016. Sad news indeed.

    I know, this has cast such a pall over the bullshit of the Oscar’s tonight. Paxton was a true great. The epitome of a working actor and an “everyman” kind of guy and always seemed like a genuine, real person. So unfair.

    Very sad indeed. I saw ALIENS last November for a special cinema screening in 4K. Paxton pretty much stole every scene he was in.
