December 14, 2020: I’ve added the slasher comedy, Club Dread.
November 28, 2020: And here’s another music video Bill appeared in, Pat Benatar’s “Shadows of the Night.”
November 22, 2020: Since I’ve just spent all that time updating the site, I thought I might as well carry on adding new stuff to it. Here’s the cult classic Barnes & Barnes music video, “Fish Heads.”
November 20, 2020: Well, here’s the thing. I watched Tombstone the other night, and it had been so long since I’d seen it, I didn’t even remember Bill was in it. But, oh man, I used to love that movie! Was curious to see what I’d written about it in the ol’ movie guide, only to find that I hadn’t actually done a review of it! That’s too bad, I thought, and then, well, there’s nothing stopping me from doing a review of it now. So, here you go, first new review in almost twenty years. Soon as I finish re-designing the website. Again.
February 25, 2017: Bill Paxton passed away at the age of 61. We will miss you, Bill.
February 21, 2011: Hello! The Bill Paxton Movie Guide is back in business! Well, sort of. I took it down a long time ago, and haven’t touched it in nearly nine years. For now, I’ve just shoved it back up exactly as it was when I last updated it in 2002. Which means some of the links are broken (it no longer has its own domain, and the email address I was using back then no longer exists, for example) and I know the list of Bill’s movies and TV shows is woefully out of date. But the first thing I’m going to work on is updating the prehistoric code, so we’ll get to that stuff later. Meanwhile, if you should happen to stumble across this site and wonder what wayback machine it fell out of, well, now you know.
April 14, 2002: Here’s another one: Vertical Limit.
April 13, 2002: Yikes! It’s been a year since I added a review! Well, here’s one of Bill’s newest movie, Frailty. And, oops! This one’s been sitting around on my hard drive almost finished for ages! Here’s U-571.
November 17, 2001: Major site redesign! I decided it was time for a fresh look. Hope you’ll find the new design a little easier on the eyes.
April 24, 2001: Do I love all of Bill’s movies? No, not quite. Here’s one I don’t: The Evening Star.
April 24, 2001: Review of Twister added. I’m on a roll now….
April 22, 2001: I’m back! With a new review of The Dark Backward, one of Bill’s weirdest and wackiest flicks.
May 2, 2000: Review of Monolith added. You may be wondering how I decide which movie to review next. I could say something sensible about wanting to review the older, more obscure movies first, since they’re the ones people are less likely to have seen, and have the most curiosity about. Or, I could say that I’m trying to review a wide spectrum of movies from across Bill’s career. But the truth is, it’s more or less random. I just review whichever movie I happen to think of something interesting to say about.
April 24, 2000: Review of The Terminator added. I saw U-571 last Friday. Wow!
April 20, 2000: As I’m waiting for Bill’s appearance on the Tonight Show, I’m writing my review of Mighty Joe Young. And tomorrow, U-571 opens! Bill! Bill! Bill!
March 28, 2000: Mortuary … where nobody rests in peace.
March 19, 2000: Review of True Lies added.
March 13, 2000: The Bill Paxton Movie Guide has a new home and a new domain name! Hope you’ll find that it loads faster and better now.
March 12, 2000: Review of Stripes added.
March 10, 2000: Review of Next of Kin added.
March 7, 2000: Review of Impulse added.
March 3, 2000: Review of Weird Science added. Nude scene alert!
February 24, 2000: We have liftoff! In other words, the whole darn site is what’s new. Site launch (on my birthday) with reviews of movies Titanic, Apollo 13, Boxing Helena, Near Dark, and Aliens; and TV show Miami Vice.
