    Certainly a film years ahead of it's time, Alien alone warrants this recognition. A film with two separate fear - inducing entities, the iconic xenomorph and the seemingly alive bowels of Nostromo. If either of the two had been employed without the other, in my opinion the film would not have invaded nightmares so completely.

         Bladerunner is also a film with no equal. It is a film that has been in need of a sequel for decades now. Hopefully, the rumored sequel with Ryan Gossling will indeed happen. Ridley Scott's use of detailed model work in place of CGI is a landmark achievement in this classic as well as in Alien.

         One could write an encyclopedia of entries just like the ones above. The man is a visionary equal in his trade to the likes of Isaac Newton, Picasso or Hemingway.  All of this director's films are works of art...and Gladiator's Academy Awards should have been just another handful of Oscars to heap into the pile of all the others that should have preceded it.

    Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, Thelma & Louise, The Duellists, 1492: Conquest of Paradise, American Gangster, Kingdom of Heaven,The Martian and I personally enjoyed Prometheus. Sir Ridley Scott is a master visual director... all his film are visual masterpieces.

    Happy Birthday Sir Ridley.

    Only by Alien and Blade Runner already deserves it. Two masterpieces that are total reference in the genre, besides other so many great films that have directed, of course. One of the best directors in active, and hopefully so for many years.
