One of the greatest knife scenes in cinema; RIP Bill Paxton.

 

There isn’t a lot to add to the myriad eulogies for actor Bill Paxton who passed this weekend. While I am a bigger fan of his work in Apollo 13 and Twister, he was a part of one of the greatest knife scenes in movie history – When Bishop the android demonstrates the “Knife Game” on Private Hudson’s (Paxton) hand in Aliens.

Here is the whole scene. I have asked the question in the past, but it remains prescient: What is your favorite knife scene from cinema?

Requiescat in pace Mr. Paxton. Thank you.
