    RIP Ray Liotta

    Actor Ray Liotta, 1954-2022, died in his sleep in the Dominican Republic, where he was filming his latest movie. Rest in peace.

    Good grief, how unexpected and terrible. I liked Mr. Liotta.

    RIP - Some of my all time favourite movies are with Ray.
    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    67 years old?? WTF? RIP. My favorite Liotta movie moment was in a film with Jennifer Love Hewitt and Sigorney Weaver. He gets on a 25 foot boat in some tropical setting excitedly says Oh look at all the pretty fish and pulls a revolver out and starts shooting into the water. His intensity could be funny or chilling.

    I somehow seemed to see only a couple of his movies, but I know he was well liked. Heard some people talking about him today, but had no idea it was because he'd died. RIP Ray.

    RIP. I remember him in a film called No Escape (1994). Mindless action, loads of fun.

    I always really liked Copland, a film that is kind of forgotten nowadays, but he was solid in that one, and it had a pretty amazing cast.

    Forgot he was in that movie. I only remembered Stallone and Deniro. Good film.

    And the hits keep coming.

    67 is awfully young these days, but he did state a few years back about his smoking having an impact on his health.

    Talk about a guy who had distilled the art of menace - a rare actor who needed few lines to do so. He could convey intimidation and a sense of palpable danger in just a look.

    Possibly the movie Heartbreakers (2001). If I can locate my dvd, I'll watch it tonight.
