On the eve of the Academy Awards, a sad note, as popular character actor Bill Paxton passed away from complications after heart surgery at the age of 61.
Often a role player in his films, yet unmistakeable and talented in larger roles such as ‘Twister,’ ‘A Simple Plan,’ ‘One False Move,’ and ‘Frailty,’ Paxton embodied the familiar Everyman with grace and Texas charm.
‘Frailty,’ Paxton’s criminally underseen directorial effort, showcased an artist of many talents.
Mr. Paxton, thank you for the numerous cinematic moments and memories.
You will be missed. Condolences to family and friends of this uniquely talented and wonderfully familiar ‘Movie Guy.’
Bill Paxton homage.

Carrie Fisher, best known for her role in ‘Star Wars’ films, has passed away at the age of 60.
We also express our most sincere condolences to the families of George Michael, Garry Shandling, and my own family with the passing of Dawn Foster Pontrelli.
Courageous icons, each of them.
The scenes, the music, the comedy, and the strength of spirit are already sorely, sadly missed.

‘Midnight in Paris’ is, in many ways, one of Woody Allen’s most accessible films in recent memory. The film is as much a love letter to romantics as it is to the “City of Light” itself. Continue reading
