    A warm, versatile actor with some great performances to his name...Southern Comfort, The Right Stuff, Equinox (the Alan Rudolph movie...personal favorite of mine), Miami Blues, The Player...oh, and Remo:Unarmed And Dangerous (a lot of fun).

    And honestly, who can fail to love Tremors?

    RIP Fred

    Too bad. I've only ever seen him in one film, and needless to say it's Tremors. It's one of my favourite films to be honest, I have seen it so many times over the years. 

    RIP Fred.

    I have to be honest, I've never really liked Tremors... I'm sure I'm in the wrong, even my brother disagrees with me, but it just doesn't work for me.  And I thought that even before all the ropey sequels.

    I do, however, love Remo: Unarmed and Dangerous and most people hate that.  Southern Comfort's very good too.

    RIP Fred Ward.

    The Right Stuff is one of my favourite films and he was excellent in it.

    I might be occupying the middle ground (no sudden moves, they'll hear you) but as much as I love Tremors,  Remo: Unarmed and Dangerous has my vote as Fred Ward's best film.
    He even out-acted Joel Grey in the most miscast racial stereotypical role since Peter Ustinov or Warner Oland (look him up).
    Some task  ;)
    RIP Fred Ward.

    I thought he had a bit of a Charles Bronson about him.

    I love Tremors.  Forgot he was in Southern Comfort and I haven't seen it for years.  I'll re-watch.
