As death continues it’s relentless march through the gifted and talented of TV and film, My Favourite… celebrates those we have lost by taking a look at a slice of their best work. Well sometimes best, sometimes just the one I like the most.
This time out: My Favourite…. Bill Paxton Film (1955-2017) Film
The moon from Alien has been colonized, but contact is lost. This time, the rescue team has impressive firepower, but will it be enough?
It may be the obvious choice BUT Aliens cemented Bill Paxton into one of the best character actors, a role he still performed with aplomb around right up until his death today. And in Hudson, the cowardly solider in the Colonial Marines, James Cameron gave him a role that would be quoted for ever and a day. It’s an amazing film and Paxton is amazing in it.
In Hudson’s own words: “Game Over Man, Game Over.” Indeed
