TAL and BHD are good, not great. Gladiator is terrible and AG is entertaining, but forgettable.

Any others?
Raimi said on the 'Drag Me' red carpet that the ED remake is all but shelved (for a while anyway). Between that, DMTH, and the tidbits he's been dropping about ED4, the guy is my fucking hero right now.

Sam Raimi >> Everyone else in Horror

TAL is a great example of feminist cinema in a road movie. BHD is like a migraine image of war, and Scott gets powerhouse performances out Crowe and Washigton in AG. Oh, and 'Gladiator' is just fucking great cinema full stop!

Yes.

I think he's gotten the horror bug again and I think I read somewhere that he's more enthused for Ed4 than ever.

Crowe and Washington are two of the greatest actors working in film today. I wouldn't give that credit to Scott, and great performances don't make great films.

Yes, it's terrible. Cheesy and overrated.

At best it's a decent action flick.

After Fincher ass-raped the series with part 3. Alien 4 was just plain boring and AVP sucked ass they could remake the damn movie's with sock puppets and I don't care.

The first 2 were great but after that the Alien series is a huge failure.
