#17: A Salute to Bill Paxton

Mr. Bill Paxton 1955-2017

Hello HYSTO? friends!  We’re back after a three-week break, and we came back with a purpose: to honor the work of an amazing actor that we lost recently, Mr. Bill Paxton.

Paul chose Million Dollar Arm, a recent film, and one that Paxton has a small but pivotal role in.  I picked one of my favorite films  Frailty, which Paxton directed himself.  How did he do? Listen in to find out! We also discuss the movie True Lies, in which Bill gives one of his finest comic performances of his career (in our opinion). How does the rest of the film hold up?  Join us and find out!

All of this and, of course we also announce which movies we’ve chosen for episode #18. Please give us a listen as we pay respect to a man that left an incredible body of work behind for us to enjoy: the amazing Bill Paxton.



Frailty – 2001
Million Dollar Arm – 2014
True Lies – 1994
