RIP Bill Paxton: Scenes from Twister

February 26, 2017

Bill Paxton passed. This is his most memorable role for me.
I think the movie started something that continues to this day.

Reminded also that this was an important early role for Philip Seymour Hoffman, as a suitably scrubby grad student.

Below, maybe the most dramatic actual footage I’ve seen, must have been made by some people who watched this movie a few too many times.

    The last video is by Reed Timmer. He used to be a part of the Discovery channels Storm Chasers show. He tweeted yesterday that he and a lot of the current storm chasers were inspired by Bill and Twister and then even put his initials into the storm tracker system in honor of him.
