Ridley Scott has only made three films worth watching. Any of the others could be made by any studio hack and you couldn't tell.
Time to die Ridley.


So were you born a douche or does it just come naturally?



Someone hasn't seen Bladerunner.
But seriously, does anyone get excited for a Ridley Scott film these days?


Do you read what you type? Just saying.

Next time reference something that doesn't allude to telling Scott to die.

It was a line from Bladerunner? I'm sure fans shout it to him all the time and he replies with ''I will... but not yet... Not yet!''

Sir Ridder's is brilliant and rubbish at the same time. He's made some right crap admittedly but his great work outshines his duff stuff. How many directors out there can claim a back catalogue as good as Alien, Blade Runner (Directors/Final Cut), Gladiator, Legend, Kingdom of Heaven (Directors Cut), American Gangster, Robin Hood (its a good film, really) and Howard the Duck.

Ridley Rocks!

Did he work on Howard the Duck or have I got my wires crossed. Have Alien and American Gangster however I have not seen that yet but my Favourite is Robin Hood I keep meaning to rewatch Gladiator. Blade Runner is a film that grows on me however Legend is duff even with Tim Curry in it. G.I Jane has it's moments and Black Hawk Down needs a rewatch as well I remember not really likeing it when I first saw it.

I like the fact R.Scott sometimes finishes his sentences with "right" ie he said it alot in the Alien special features disk.
Something i've sadly noticed.

He has a bloody great eye for detail,right.

Wonder if R.S is still interested in adapting Joe Hakderman's Forever War onto the big screen.

It was going to be his first Sci-Fi before jumping back into the Alien world of Prometheus.

I think he was confused because you have Howard The Duck as part of Ridley Scott's filmography. It was directed by Willard Huyck I believe.

Howard The Duck is awesome though.

Sir Ridley Scott has forever cemented his place in the greatest movies hall of fame, I dont give a fuck if he makes shit for the rest of his life, he gave me Blade Runner and Alien, two of the greatest science fiction movies ever, and in the former, my favourite film. And the latter, a movie that introduced the world to the greatest movie monster, period.

In my eyes he will always be a Legend.

EDIT: just realised this is my 666th post - damien if your hearing this - get stuffed!

I don't know but for some reason I always assumed Ridley Scott directed Howard The Duck. Must have been Mark Kermodes fault.

I think that is one of the best movie mis-conceptions i've heard in a while!!

I havent seen all his films but Bladerunner and Alien are among my favs of all time, Gladiator on the other hand was a massive turn off, cliched macho bunkum plus pompus twat Russell Crowe.

It's not clichéd, it's just of a style. Personally I love it, although I do prefer the other two you mention, obviously!

If anyone is interested in reading abit more on ol'Ridders then I cant but turn your heads towards Paul.M.Sammons small book:Ridley Scott.The Making Of His Movies.
It only accounts for the first 10 of his films and also his extremely impressive rise to where he is now.
Interesting read.

He is not my favourite director - actually I don't have a favourite director - however movies such as Alien Blade runner and Gladiator are for me impossible to forget.

I think he should have been higher in the list.I know he has made a couple of bad movies like Robin hood being the one I really dislike but Blade runner is one of the best films ever made and is on my list of favorite films

Scott was a very good director for his first two decades. But he hasn't made a good film now since Kingdom Of Heaven and a really good one since Thelma And Louise. For quite a while, his brother was easily the better filmmaker, and he never made anything as crap as Prometheus or The Counsellor.
