You don’t actually have to look too hard to see the mark that the Scott brothers made on Hollywood and movies. Their production company Scott Free, produces some of the best action movies of all time.
But I just want to thank Tony Scott specifically, for directing one of my all time favorite movies.
Top Gun is one of the greatest action movies ever. Is it terminally stuck in it’s moment? Sure. But it’s also fun, funny, surprisingly poignant and helped to give the world Tom Cruise. (We should say “Thank You,” because seriously, the man is always intensely entertaining…) It also created a sure-fire get my number scheme. Seriously, if a guy came up to me and sang, “That Lovin’ Feeling” in a bar, I would probably marry him that night…If he was a navy pilot, most certainly so. Anyway, it’s a great movie, is what I’m saying.
And I’m grateful to Tony Scott for making it happen. RIP sir.
