Yeah he played a small part in Terminator, I was thinking of Michael Biehn but Paxton was also in True Lies. Remember the dorky car salesman, he was funny in that.

Oh yeah, I forgot all about that one. He pretended to play an American spy to seduce Jamie Lee Curtis's character as a bored housewife. Good call on that one CBE.

I never understood the fascination with that western myself & that genre is usually right up my alley. 

 

Since you enjoy this film m colts m, I will just say that I respect your tastes & won't rain on your parade here. I get it not everybody is going to be enamored with the same pictures on identical grounds from time to time. Such is life.

Couple reasons I like it.,

 

Star Studded cast.....

 

Bill Paxton

Val Kilmer 

Kurt Russell

Charlton Heston

Sam Elliot

Dana Delaney

Thomas Haden Church

Etc.  

 

The Storyline.....

 

The classic retired lawman (Earp)drug into a local dispute that turns into a Vendetta against the outlaws that killed his brother....the shootout at OK corral, and Doc Holiday, man did I love his character!!!! I really wished he wouldn't have died at the end and they would have done a spinoff of his adventures, Val Kilmers best role IMO. " I'm you're Huckleberry..."

 

It was cool to see a classic character like Wyatt Earp come to life with modern actors and modern film directing/quality( at the time). Also big fan of Kurt Russel, he did a great job as Wyatt Earp...favorite quote: 

 

  • "All right, Clanton... You called down the thunder. Well, now you've got it! You see that? It says "United States Marshal."... Take a good look at him, Ike, because that's how you're gonna end up!... The Cowboys are finished, you understand me?! I see a red sash, I kill the man wearin' it! So run, you cur... RUN! Tell all the other curs the LAW'S coming! You tell 'em I'M coming... and Hell's coming with me, you hear?! Hell's coming with me!"

 

I understand SW, no big deal.....Different strokes for different folks my brother.

Yeah one of the only two people to ever get killed by an Alien, Terminator, and Predator. . . . . . . .  He was a solid actor that I grew up watching.

I just stumbled onto this thread so my apology for resurrectting it, although it is not all that old.

I just noticed that you've missed a movie that he did very well in and in my opinion was one of his best performances....

 

Hatfield and McCoy's.... He played Randall McCoy opposite his foe Anse Hatfield played by Kevin Costner...

 

Long movie, but I really like it.  Sad to hear of his passing.

    •   Yes.  You, sir/madam hit the nail square on the head.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Nas made one of the most positive rap songs I ever heard "I know I can"...  Andre 3000 is a positive force in this world, and makes great music, however you define it.   I hate twista, but that's just my personal opinion.  Everything else you said, I completely agree with.  KRS-1 is a founder.  Q-TIP is a founder.  Jurassic 5 builds on the foundation like few others.  I've never been a fan of the Beastie Boys, but I'm a biased individual.  Cube is THE foundation, along with the rest of the 90's concrete.   Ready to Die...  
    • Also Biggie... Can't think of a bad one he ever spit, although some of the songs had too much Puff Daddy for my taste... If Mace is on a track, I can't listen to it... Monotone, mumbly, awkwardly worded every time he raps.
    • Not sure they would be bigger then Dre he is a icon he even discovered Eminem. I haven't talked about him yet he is actually prolly my favorite modern rapper his flow is absolutely amazing 
    •     Can you imagine Biggie and Tupac enjoying the success of Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Snoop, and Chris Tucker?  They would be the same age as Dre and Snoop, and way more successful.  They could have been the most successful rappers to ever play the game, and retire as icons...   The music/movies that they could have collaborated on?  The coast-to-coast success they could have contributed to if they hadn't been gunned down?   I mean, they could have collaborated in music and movies if they had just buried the hatchet and squashed all that east/west bullcrap...    
    • I can't decide on this one.. For me, it's a toss up between Nas and Jay-Z... Both are absolute geniuses.   Kendrick Lamar will belong near the top of the list eventually.. He is amazing. Eminem has a legitimate claim to possibly having the smartest/most complex rhyme schemes and probably uses more literary convention with regard to poetical forms than all others. His rhymes on the 2nd Bad Meets Evil record (with Royce Da 5-9) should have been game-changers, but couldn't stop the mumble rap from taking over.   Twista might be the fastest, at least he's the fastest without having it overtake his flow. Bone Thugs have some incredibly quick verses.   I think Andre 3k should be included in the discussion. He has some borderline ridiculous verses, but many profound ones.    As far as old school guys, my personal preferences are KRS-1, Q-Tip, Jurrasic 5... Beasties have great jams , but not overly skilled lyricists...   Cube is the best battle rapper all time, imo, although Eminem and Common are both deadly as well   Edit: when I said "battle rapper" I should have said that he makes the best "dis tracks" battling is another scene... I think the consensus might be that Marshall Mathers is the best straight up battler

    •   Sorry to keep harping on the Irish thing, but did you know the horseshoe has seven points on it?  (The Colts horseshoe, anyway.  Actual shoes for horses depend on the farrier).   Seven is considered a lucky number...  Lucky.  Luck.  I'm telling you, you picked the right team to root for.   7    
    •   Don't hold Boston against the Irish.  It's not our fault.    We love our green, which makes Indiana a tearmann.   I love it that you chose to root for an underdog instead of the Pats.  I don't think it's coincidence that you became a fan around the time Luck got drafted to the Colts.  That's providence.     Horseshoe?  Luck?  Four-leaf clover?  Come on.  Hoosier Hospitality has roots in Irish fun-lovery.  If you're lucky enough to be Irish, you're lucky enough!  May the luck of the Irish be with you!
