[the films of] Ridley Scott

My greatest apologies that I cannot give you another edition of TOP 10 SHOTS this week, though it's not from neglect or lack of trying. As a matter of fact, I've tried desperately all week to find a film by Ridley Scott to get deeply into for TOP 10 SHOTS. I've already stated some mild disappointments for "Alien", a frankly overrated and simple sci-fi horror flick. Generally, Ridley Scott isn't an absolute master director, but he is by no degree a bad one. He simply doesn't try to make any statements with his filmmaking. He is strictly a storyteller, which isn't a bad way to be. It just means that he'll never make a film that give more than three stars to. Still, a career built on solid work is nothing to scoff at, and so to give him proper recognition for that, here's a rather expertly constructed tribute to what Ridley Scott does best.
