R.I.P. Tony Scott! 1944-2012!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 20th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I grew up on Tony Scott films.  From ‘Top Gun’, ‘Days of Thunder’, ‘Beverly Hills Cop II’, ‘Crimson Tide’, ‘True Romance’, and ‘The Last Boy Scout’.  Not to mention several others from the past few years.  Scott committed suicide at the age of 68 by jumping off a bridge near Long Beach.  This is difficult to process, as to why he felt he needed to do this, and how great a filmmaker he was.

He has worked the best of the best people, brining the best performances out of people and having faith in unknowns, which are now A-list talent.  This is heartbreaking.  I was hoping that Scott would grab Gene Hackman from retirement and place him in one final film with Denzel Washington with Quentin Tarantino.  My thoughts go out to Scott’s family and friends.

Movie Quotes

Old Paul Edgecomb:
They usually call death row the Last Mile, but we called ours the Green Mile, because the floor was the color of faded limes. We had the electric chair then. Old Sparky, we called it. I've lived a lot of years, Ellie, but 1935 takes the prize. That was the year I had the worst urinary infection of my life. That was also the year of John Coffey and the two dead girls.
