Posts about Bill Paxton
Weird Science was released today in 1985. I adore this film. Kelly LeBrock was beautiful, Bill Paxton was absolutely brilliant and the whole thing is endlessly quotable, this scene is alone is filled with great lines. Not bad considering John Hughes wrote the script in just 2 days
Bill Paxton (John Garrett) and Powers Boothe (Gideon Malick) both appear in one of my favorite movies.
The movie is Frailty, a 2001 psychological thriller/horror movie. Paxton plays a seemingly normal guy who all of a sudden thinks he is “God’s Hand”—God reveals “demons” to him to kill but it seems he’s just killing normal people. The story is told in the present by one of his sons to an FBI agent (played by Boothe).
I’m watching Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D for the first time and seeing both of them (who have sadly both passed away) has made me nostalgic for this movie, which was a moderate critical success but a box office failure. I believe it’s also one of two movies directed by Paxton.
Anyway, I’d recommend checking it out. It’s on HBO Max so easy to peek at if you have that at least.
