I remember the first time I watched Top Gun, I was jumping up and down in my seat. After that, I became a big fan of Tony Scott (who is Ridley Scott’s brother) and watched many of his films. He had a refreshing take on action pictures compared to most directors, and even still today I enjoy many of his movies.
That’s why I was so sad to hear that Scott had just died today (according to the police it was an apparent suicide). I was shocked, then saddened. It’s hard to believe what an impact Scott has had on the movie industry and an impact he has had on modern day moviegoers.
It hit me really, really hard. I found out this morning and was shocked. Scott was a talented director, and he will surely be missed.
