Mornin '13

Sorry, folks we're talking movies again, because I just can't find any particularly enlightening game-related topic at this time. Okay, there are many game-related topics, I'm sure, but this is the perfect time not to talk about any of them. So, instead we'll be talking about movie director Ridley Scott. While that name instills absolute respect, it also brings to mind the many mistakes the guy made as a director. Mainly, taking on projects like G.I. Gane, Kingdom of Heaven, Robin Hood and Prometheus. Even Hannibal seemed like a pointless movie to me. All these movies weren't utter crap, of course, but they still can't be compared to some of his top work, which include the following:

  • Alien
  • Blade Runner
  • Legend
  • Thelma & Louise
  • White Squall
  • Gladiator
  • Matchstick Men
  • A Good Year - not brilliant, but a warm tale if nothing else
  • American Gangster

Well, those are my favorites anyway. And here's a tip from the man himself - something both game developers and movie makers should take into account when setting up a premise for the stories they want to tell:

Kingdom of Heaven Directors Cut is up there with his best work. Prometheus is also awesome if you watch it without constantly comparing it to Alien(s) like some shit obssesing nerd.
  Vader: The only thing I really liked about Kingdom of Heaven…
Bubu: Did you watch directors cut?
Vader: Ok... ... no.

You could compare Prometheus to Smurfs it would have more sense.
  Vader: lol
Towndrunk Jul 02 2013, 03:55 am EDT

Vader [STAFF] Jul 02 2013, 04:02 am EDT
Good movie. Not his top work, but a good movie.

i disagree, Ridley Scott is shit. his movies were merely a streak of luck based on someone else's work.
Prometheus is a good example that lightning doesn't strike twice.

Gladiator is Hollywood's worst shit ever. Prometheus is a bad movie, but at least you have a good time watching it, and the first half is really promising.

I enjoyed Prometheus and Kingdom of Heaven (of course on fucking DVD). Gladiator is historically-inaccurate as fuck, but I enjoyed the hell out of it.

I will always hold that Robin Hood is a giant shit and should be remembered as a perfect example of how to take brilliant material (bought for a 7-figureprice) and then absolutely raped of everything that is interesting and cool. He took what would have been an absolutely fresh take on the whole Robin Hood mythos and then wiped his hairy ass with it. And it's funny, because he was no fan of any of the other Robin Hood movies, but he made THE WORST version of Robin Hood out of any of them.

Fuck Ridley Scott. His brother was a better and more interesting director then him, FSM rest his soul. I loved Alien, but Ridley Scott hasn't done anything I really liked since Black Hawk Down.

OMFG, I can't believe I'm seeing comments regarding Gladiator in line with: it's not historically accurate, and taking that as a reason the movie sucked or might have sucked.

What the fuck?! If you want a history lesson go to school or watch History channel or whatever.
