Tony Scott 1944 - 2012
We won't pour over the details here; its not appropriate and no doubt our predatory media will see to that. Two things have to be said though; our thoughts go out to the Scott family, and the movie world has lost a great filmmaker.

When you look down the list of Tony Scott's movies you don't come across a long list of Oscar winners. What you find is something more important than that; a long line of films that thrilled audiences from start to finish. Who cares about high-brow accolades when films are this entertaining. Sure, Top Gun (1986) is as cheesy as they come but it'll never bore you. The Last Boy Scout (1991) will strain plausability but you'll never get to the end and wish you'd watched something else. Tony Scott knew how to make the most entertaining of movies.

So pay tribute to the man this week by popping a Tony Scott classic into your dvd player. You could argue True Romance (1993) was his best, but I'll be going for Beverly Hills Cop II (1987). Scott knew what the audience wanted to see, Foley, Taggert and Rosewood together as a trio, taking down names, kicking ass, having fun. Because that's what cinema should be, above everything else; fun.
