    Ridley Scott has directed many successful films. Which are your favorites?

    My favs are Hannibal, Gladiator and Blade Runner. :D

    Ridley Scott was responsible for 1492? My opinion of him has dropped through the floor.

    BTW, I voted for Blade Runner, but there were several other flicks on the list that I also liked.

    I just saw Black Hawk Down last week and think it had, without a doubt, the best war action sequences EVER. Unfortunately, the dialogue stunk (but there wasn't much of it) and so would the plot if it wouldn't have been based on a true story.

    I didn't like any of the other films... except Alien, but I've never really sat through the whole thing.

    Alien and Blade Runner.

    Black Rain brings back memories too, first movie I saw in a movie theatre...

    I voted Alien, although director's cut of Blade Runner is a far better movie (none of that explanation speech ruining the scenes).

    Have yet to see his later stuff... a pleasure for tomorrow.

    Alien and Blade Runner. Two classics, IMHO (I got the whole Aliens series in DVD - waves at me :D)

    Regards :).

    I consider the Director's Cut of Blade Runner to be among the top five movies of all time on all scores - vision, execution, acting, script, cinematography, etc. - so guess what I picked...

    Alien and Blade Runner get my votes.

    Gladiator was entertaining, but not a favorite. Thelma and Louise was a good film, and I'm surprised it still has 0 votes.

    Blade Runner the PC game was better than Blade Runner the film. IMO.

    I voted Gladiator - simply awesome

    My vote goes to Gladiator. :goodjob:

    G.I.Jane must be one of the most horrible movies ever - for all the wrong reasons. :ack:

    The man ignores history totally, but I enjoyed Gladiator.

    For the sheer Romanism of it all.

    Alien. Gladiator was okay.

    Black Hawk Down is "war porn". :D I don't know where I heard that, but I think it's a good description.

    Ridley Scott is a hack too, but not as bad as Stevie 'race-basher' Spielberg. :D

    Just ahead- there in the moonlight.
    Gladiator- for all its faults I enjoyed Oliver Reed`s speech about not fearing death. Also I think Russell has a lot to offer as an actor (I had to say that or he`ll hit me).

    You know Oliver Reed died during that film? My theory is that Russell had actually been using Oliver`s soul while he was too drunk to notice it was missing. When he finally wised up the soul decied to stick with Russell- the new Oliver Reed.

    Open the windows when you use furniture polish kids- its dangerous stuff.
