Great Scott! A reviewing adventure

We are big fans of adventure and action films. My beloved is an unrepentant Top Gun fan, much to my dismay. We’ve both liked various Tony and Ridley Scott films over the years. So we thought, why not do a best-of viewing? That would be fun!

And then I looked at IMDB and MetaCritic, and it turns out that some of the top-rated films from Tony in particular are comedies. I am not watching Get Santa, nor Cyrus. Anyway, after some to-ing and fro-ing, we’ve decided on an idiosyncratic list of five from each Scott, which we’re going to watch in chronological order. It includes some films we’ve seen before, and a couple we never have (or not recently enough to have any real memory of). We’ll be watching and reviewing every fortnight(…ish).

We are looking forward to:

Ridley – Alien (1979)
Ridley – Blade Runner (1982)
Tony – Top Gun (1986)
Tony – Beverly Hills Cop II (1987)
Tony – Crimson Tide (1995)
Tony – Enemy of the State (1998)
Ridley – Gladiator (2000)
Tony – Spy Game (and here) (2001)
Ridley – Robin Hood (2010)
Ridley – The Martian (2015)
