He was in one of my favorite movies, Hellboy II. Albeit only in a flashback.

and who can forget him being involved in THE MOST ICONIC HORROR MOVIE SCENE of all time?

John Hurt was a wonderful actor with a bunch of iconic roles. From the original Alien and 1984, to the Harry Potter and Hellboy franchises, and other random awesome movies like Snowpiercer. It's sad to see him go, but at least we have his wonderful career to remember him by.

Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Day ruined. Twister was my go-to childhood film. In fact, I'm gonna rewatch it tonight.

"Surprise is an insubstantial blade, a sword worthless in war. It breaks when troops rally, it snaps when commanders hold the line, but fear never fades. So let the enemy know we come, let their fears defeat them as everything falls dark, as the worlds sun sets, as the city is wreathed in its final night. Let ten thousand howls promise ten thousand claws. The Night Lords are coming, and no soul that stands against us shall see another dawn"

When I was in elementary school, the two movies I was obsessed with most were Twister and Apollo 13, which had come out during that period of time. Because I was so fixated on them, I became more interested in their subject matter and started reading educational books about weather and the US space program.

Both films had Paxton in them.
