Okay Bob DiMucci, with all due respect, could I humbly ask that you please stop posting all these images from each year. Is it really necessary? Maybe start its own thread? I don't want to speak for everyone, but not sure we need a poster image for every single film PSH has ever done, year by year for 20 years...

Agreed. I don't think they make for a dignified tribute.

Yeah Bob, let's have some fifties posters, those Hoffman ones are rubbish.

What would fifties posters have to do with PSH?

TO REGIE- Friendly discussion here of course, different opinions. What do you feel about stuntmen and women who have many times risk their lives helping us complete films, Do you feel there is also something wrong with them.Because as you know their stunts are very dangerous and some sadly have died doing them over the years.

This hurts...this really hurts. frown What a talent, shamefully squandered.

Geeze ... take it down a notch! It's not like he was Corey Monteith!!!!




A joke or... ?

Of course it's always sad when a talented person takes their own life. (or any person for that matter)
But I wonder if we be getting the same reaction if it was a black actor that OD? I also agree with Dan, he chose his lifestyle. If it wasn't drugs it would have been alcohol or something else.

I meant in another thread, not this one. This one's for people wearing black with sad expressions raging against the fates because an actor's died.

I happen to like the rundown of PSH posters...it just helps to illustrate how many movies he improved by his presence over the last twenty years.

I like the posters too on this thread... the movie ones.

I think the Movie Posters help illustrate that he worked constantly. A successful working actor career that most in his profession would appreciate and no pun intended, die for.

Rest in Peace and I wish the best for the children.

This photo speaks volumes:

My apologies. If I may conclude.

After becoming a leading man, Hoffman appeared in some other films, about which little need be said.









So much for a celebration of Hoffman’s life. Now, back to the manner of his death.

Bob, I very much enjoy your display of posters, and find them to be an appropriate and dignified way to celebrate a movie career. I have no idea why a couple of people here were so ludricrously touchy about them.

I'd prefer the former rather than the latter. Sorry you had to be browbeaten into (let's face it) hurrying it up... we didn't all have a problem with your approach, Bob.

RIP Phil. Very, very sad.

To MikeP: Yes, that was a joke. People who know me here would know that it's the kind of jest I would make, and in this case, with the thread becoming just a tad too maudlin, I chose to add just a line of levity.

But I must say that I was startled by some of the tributes to Hoffman I saw tonight on MSNBC and CNN -- some felt that he was the greatest living American actor, which seemed just a bit of an exaggeration. I thought he was okay, sometimes even good, and VERY good as Truman Capote. But he was, going beyond American actors, no Ben Kingsley or Liam Neeson or Anthony Hopkins or....

You always get that with vox pop surveys of anything - the more recent events are always uppermost in the mind. I'm sure similar things were said about Heath Ledger.

And, yes, my sympathy is reserved primarily for his kids, without any apology. I was little more than one myself when I lost my father, and 37 years later I don't think a day goes by without wishing he'd lived to see things like home computers, the internet, CDs, digital photography and air conditoning in cars as a standard feature (something he used to go on about smile ). It'll be worse for them, being younger.

So sympathy for his kids, and - on the grounds that he must have bought 70 bags of heroin from somewhere, thus helping to perpetuate a horrible industry - sympathy for people who are caught up in drug addiction who haven't had one hundredth of his privilege or ability to fund lifestyle choices.
