4 Shots From 4 Films: Special Bill Paxton Edition


4 Shots From 4 Films is just what it says it is, 4 shots from 4 of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps that we usually post, 4 Shots From 4 Films lets the visuals do the talking!

Bill Paxton would have been 65 years old today.  One of the greatest of the modern character actors, Bill Paxton passed away three years ago and the loss is still felt.  Paxton was one of those actors who was often taken for granted but who was capable of bring almost any character to life.  He was an exciting actor to watch, not to mention being one of the best actor to ever come out of Ft. Worth, Texas.  He is definitely missed.

Today, we pay tribute to the great Bill Paxton with….

  1. Great post reminding us how talented he was. Of course, Hudson is the character many will remember but the others he brought to life are just as memorable. I recently watched A Simple Plan and was wowed by his performance – when he and Fonda have that argument on the stairs, it felt so raw and real.

    I’ve never even heard of Pass the Ammo, though!!!

    RIP Bill Paxton
