I think he was a very underrated director. I'm a big fan of The Wall and Evita, Midnight Express and Angel Heart are both very good, and I even liked The Road to Wellville.

Absolutely underrated. I think one reason he isn't more famous is that he didn't have any one style that he settled on. All his movies were so different from one another that you didn't know what you were going to get. I also think the controversy over Lisa Bonet taking on a more adult role during the Cosby era overshadowed Angel Heart for a time, though over time word of mouth and the passage of time from the Cosby Show has allowed it to stand on its own merits more.

Wow, that's a shocker, and obviously news with significant ramifications on future Marvel movies, since as Black Panther he'd have likely been in quite a few more movies, not just the Black Panther sequel.

Re: Pop Culture Obituaries

It been a week since it happened, but no one else has brought it up.

RIP John Laurinaitis, better known as the professional wrestler Animal of the Road Warriors/the Legion of Doom. He had actually appeared in a few comics with his partner, the late Michael "Hawk" Hegstrand, such as issue 5 of Valiant's Battlemania and the two issues of Antarctic's Fifth Force.

RIP actor singer Mac Davis (Seth Maxwell in North Dallas Forty; Don't Get Hooked on Me, It's Hard to Be Humble) https://www.cbc.ca/news/entertainment/mac-davis-dead-at-78-1.5744385

RIP actress singer Helen Reddy (Nora in Pete's Dragon; I am Woman) https://www.npr.org/2020/09/30/918651061/i-am-woman-singer-helen-reddy-is-dead-aged-78

So both were singers who did a bit of acting and who died on Sept. 29, 2020 at age 78.

RIP Sir Sean Connery - James Bond, Ramirez in Highlander, Henry Jones Sr., Quatermain in LoEG, and so much more.

Re: Pop Culture Obituaries

While Connery had views I don't agree with (particularly about women), he was nevertheless in my mind the definitive James Bond, bringing a kind of ruthlessness to the role. RIP.
