Game Over, Man / Bill Paxton Dead at 61

Bill Paxton has died today after complications from surgery. This one hit me right in the chest because he’s been a favorite actor of mine since I was a kid. Paxton was in some of the most formative movies of my childhood, like The Terminator, Aliens, Weird Science, Near Dark, Commando, and Predator 2. His newer films would help create a new generation of fans. From Twister to Edge of Tomorrow, Paxton was a commanding presence on screen and will not soon be replaced. Sad times.
