Being an massive year for celebrity deaths thats for sure ...

I was more saddend by Patrick Swayze's death though, considering his age and he was more 'notable' for a person of my age (Generation Y) ...

Some may read that as "Generation Why", C_P.

I felt for Swayze too.
Surprising just how good a guy he really was.

Heath's death was a tragedy. It seemed he was just starting to make a name for himself and then he was gone. Damn shame.

Swayze's 2 best movies IMO
1 roadhouse
2 Point break

Two of my fav old timers that are no longer with us are Cary Grant and Brando.

Heath's death was an absolute tragedy.

FMD, any risk we can keep it to people whose acting skills were better when they were alive? Ledger and Swayze? Please...

Jimmy Stewart is the best actor I have ever seen on any medium, alive or dead ...

It's just such a sheer pleasure watching films like Rear Window, Vertigo or Mr Smith goes to Washington ... Even It's a wonderful life, a film with a fairly crap storyline is just made into a classic by Stewart's wonderful acting performance.
I know I have a bad reputation around here and a 'dubious' taste in about anything really, but I really recommend people getting around to watching Rear Window and Vertigo on DVD, truly stunning films that crap all over any of the garbage that Hollywood seems to churn out these days.

Claude Rains is another personal favourite of mine from the 'vintage' era of Hollywood.
Universal Films Phantom of the Oprea starring Rains is the definitive version of that saga, any other remake of that is simply sub-par.

Currently watching Kill Bill Vol 2 and I saw the thread.

David Carradine deserves a mention. Another quality actor who died this year.

This bloke was alright



Him too,



Now I know his not dead, but it won't be long so I figured I'd get in early.
