Best Ridley Scott film


Which Ridley Scott movie is your favorite?

Mine is The Duelist because I really like Harvey Keitel and the plot is quite good. A believable movie IMO.

I also really like Gladiator, Kingdom of Heaven, Black Hawk Down(one of the best film on modern warfare) and Robin hood.

Re: Best Ridley Scott film


I think Alien and Blade runner were great, then his career seems to have plummetted into mediocrity.

Though if you look at the three TBA films this might change again

Blade Runner, definitely, with Alien as a close 2nd! And with Legend deserving an honourable mention!

Blade Runner - director's cut, is the best. It's one of my favorite sci-fi movies.

Yep, Blade Runner is one of the best films ever.

Especially the scene where Rutger Hauer dies after his touching monologue.
And the dove-soul, flying free above the industrial and gloomy scenery...

"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've seen c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time... like tears in the rain. Time to die."
