Tony Scott: 1944-2012

Tony Scott, the British director of such muscular action films as Top Gun, True Romance, and Unstoppable, committed suicide Sunday by leaping from a bridge in Los Angeles. He was 68. As a 16-year-old, Scott starred in his brother Ridley's short Boy and Bicycle. Though he studied to be a painter, Scott was inspired by his brother's success and turned to filmmaking himself, directing a number of commercials before making his theatrical debut with the vampire film The Hunger in 1983. His next film, Top Gun, was a huge commercial hit; the tale of a group of hotshot Navy pilots elevated Tom Cruise to superstardom, spawned a wildly popular soundtrack, and inspired a wave of armed forces enlistees.

RT Critical Consensus: "Sky High" Soars, "Stealth" Crashes, and Diane Lane and John Cusack Go Dateless

The willing suspension of disbelief is often essential to the moviegoing experience. This week's wide releases provide no such relief. We will be asked to believe that a fighter plane develops its own intelligence (and downloads mp3s -- most likely by such bands as Jet and U2). We will be asked to believe any kid with superpowers would have a rough time in high school. And -- perhaps the greatest stretch -- we are asked to believe that there would be a moment in history in which both Diane Lane and John Cusack would be dateless. Which films do the critics believe you should see? More…
