    Don't forget Cliffhanger. That movie rocks. Still the most intense opening 10 minutes I've ever seen.

    When I was a kid, yeah, I dug Superman and The Goonies, but I can't say that I went more than a few minutes without cringing the last time I saw either of them. Without Hackman, Superman would have been a disaster.

    Lethal Weapon was a'ight. I prefered the first sequel to be honest.

    I didn't put McTiernan on that list because of Die Hard and Predator, but the rest of his catalog fits firmly in that 80's action cookie cutter format that eventually added a dash of the same early 90's style that Tony Scott is known for... it's just not my thing.

    I wasn't a fan of any of the Die Hard sequels. And I'm not trying to be all high and might Mr. Film dude - I love plenty of unredeemable dreck!

    Tony Scott Laid to Rest in Los Angeles - The Hollywood Reporter

    Los Angeles County coroner spokesman Ed Winters tells The Hollywood Reporter that Scott left two separate notes for his family and friends. One note, discovered inside the director's black Toyota Prius, contained a list of people to contact, and a separate note found in Scott's office contained specific messages to friends and family.

    "There was a suicide note to loves ones and a list with several names and numbers," Winter says, adding that neither of the notes contained mentions of health issues.

    The reason for Scott taking his own life remains unknown.

    I forgot that he did Domino. Not a classic, but a HELL of a lot of fun. But yeah, all his films had that 'heatrisingoffthepavement' overcooked thing going on. His style was...well, just that. But some of his movies fought through the 'tangerine dream' kinda discovisuals and managed to be pretty good. Rest well sir.
