Come on The Scott Brothers have made some good films since decades...
Man on Fire
Enemy of the State
Man on Fire - Great Story, shitty directing.
Deja Vu - never seen
Domino - never seen
Enemy of the State - cliched and forgettable
The Fan - never heard of it
True Romance - heard it's great but havn't seen it
Hannibal - over-directed and trite
Gladiator - most overrated movie from my college years. Good fight scenes, the rest is stolen from Spartacus.
American Gangster - boring and forgettable with weak ending that lacked theme.
Black Hawk Down - emotionally void wanna-be-documentary
Body of Lies - Boring
A Good Year - Boring-er
G.I Jane - Preachy
Thelma and Louise - trite, offensive to women, utterly moronic
Ridley hasn't made a great film since 1985 (Legend) and hasn't made a good film since ... ... Matchstick Men was watchable, as was White Squall ... but neither really float or sink my boat.
Tony has never made a great film (unless True Romance is as great as most people say it is). In particular, Spy Game is quite horrible.
I really can't believe I'm alone in this. I get that Ridley was visionary back in the day, but his stuff since then has been SO run of the mill. I'll concede that he produces "professional" work, but it's utterly generic. They're totally focused on other things now (big reality TV company) and it's just not auteur work anymore. And in the case of Tony, at the height of his game he made entertaining fluff (Days of Thunder, Crimson Tide, Top Gun, etc).
