RIP Tony Scott

As is so often the case with the social media sites, you read "news" and you aren't sure whether it's true or not. Last night I, along with many others, read the news that director Tony Scott had taken his own life. It couldn't be true, could it? Alas, it is and the world has lost a director of wonderfully entertaining movies; a Brit, who along with his brother Ridley, had become a mainstay in the Hollywood system. Whilst no one likes to deal in rumors, especially not in a situation like this, it has come to light that Tony apparently had inoperable brain cancer. A tragic end to the life and career of a terrific director.

My thoughts go out to his family and friends. All I can do is leave you with some trailers of some of my personal favorite films of his.
