R.I.P. to one of the most creative and just plain cool screenwriters of all time. You will be missed Mr. O'Bannon. 63 is still too soon to go.

Aw.

Whenever I am asked to name my favorite movies, I always put Return of the Living Dead in my top 5. I truly love that film.

So long, Dan O'Bannon, and thanks for all the fish.

A true talent has left us too soon, but he's left a wonderful legacy of screen thrills.  Goodnight, DAN.

RIP Dan, truly a guy of enormous talent. The majority of the productions he was involved with were top notch. Alien alone insures his place in film history. Here's hoping his vision/script for the 2011 prequel to Alien remains in close spirit to the original.

Definitely RIP. A damn good scriptwriter and I've always enjoyed his performance as "Lt Pinback" in "Dark Star".

Geez, loads of sad news of deaths this week.  He wrote one of the best sci-fi/horror films of all time with Alien and he wrote and directed one of the best zombie films of all time with Return of the Living Dead.  Sorry to see him go.

I'd watch Dark Star right now if I wasn't so sleepy.
