R.I.P. Tony Scott. ' Top Gun' Director:

Tony Scott, the director of Top Gun, Crimson Tide, True Romance, Days of Thunder, and many other beloved movies is dead.[1]

According to the Associated Press, Scott, 68, climbed a fence on the Vincent Thomas Bridge and jumped around 12:30 p.m. One report quoted a coroner's report that said Scott jumped "without hesitation."

May he be remebered.

War ALWAYS changes. Man does not.
[up]Yup, my reaction exactly. Poor bastard. I doubt very much that he just decided to jump off a bridge without there being something really serious going on in his life, either with his physical or psychological health.

In this ABC News article, they said that Tony Scott has inoperable brain cancer, according to a source close to him.

If that is true, then the suicide does make sense. Still, such a sudden end.

I'd cling to life with every last ounce of energy. Plenty of people out there who don't have that option.

That's easy to say when it isn't happening to oneself.
Haters gonna hate, apologists gonna make apologies up.

Uh huh. By definition, suicide is the most selfish act a person can commit.

Compare Scott with, say, Vivian Bearing:

Suicidal people are well aware that it's seen as selfish, it's just the deed gets done when you feel too broken to care. This is speaking as someone who's tried.
I cut up one dozen new men and you will die somewhat, again and again.

Can't say he hadn't lived his life to the fullest, what with his film career. I was never really a fan of his films (especially not Domino, but True Romance is one of my favorites.

Rest in peace, dude.

JUST WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK I AM?!?!?
This honestly came as a surprise for me. I mean now I feel bad for not watching Top Gun.

As for the brain cancer bit. I hope it's true cause then it would make a bit more sense but for now I can't say much except that may he always be remembered.

Don't believe yourself, believe in me.

Believe in the JR who believes in you.
has anybody played Policenauts?it's pretty Harsher in Hindsight because in that game there are twins named Tony and Ridley after the directors guess what happens to Tony at the end...that's pretty jarring, and the game was made in 1994!!
 
Watched The Hunger. That movie is haunting.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
