The only Ridley Scott movies I don't own on dvd are GI Jane, White Squall and 1492.
Kingdom of Heaven the Director's Cut was magnificent, loses points though on the casting of weak leading man Orlando Bloom, who barely changes his expression the entire movie.

Ranking

1)Alien (I didn't like the directors cut, messed up the pace, at least I can switch to the original)
2)Blade Runner (again I hated the so-called directors cut, I'd seen the original so many times on video and at the cinema, the last thing I wanted was a re-edited version sans voice over and added unicorns)
3)Legend (but I loved the extended version of Legend though)
4)Gladiator
5)Kingdom of Heaven (Director's Cut)

Average Rating 3.2 out of 5

Want to see Thelma & Louise, mildly interested in Duellists & 1492. I've seen part of Legend, maybe someday I'll see the rest.

In order of merit:


1. Alien (1979) ****
2. Blade Runner (1982) ***1/2
3. Legend (1985) ***
4. The Duellists (1977) ***
5. Thelma & Louise (1991) ***
6. Kingdom of Heaven (2005) ***
7. Gladiator (2000) ***
8. Black Hawk Down (2001) ***
9. 1492: Conquest of Paradise (1992) **1/2
10.Someone to Watch Over Me (1987) **1/2
11.Boy and Bicycle (1965) **


I've got HANNIBAL (2001) on VHS but have yet to watch it.

Brook, all 5 Ridley Scott films which you say are "mildly interested" in watching are worthwhile but I particularly recommend THE DUELLISTS (strangely compelling despite its one-trick-pony plot and beautiful to look at, too) and LEGEND (The Director's Cut is a revelation with a stunning look and a marvelous Jerry Goldsmith score).

I think I will go with the letter Grade system for this one:

Matchstick Men (2003) B- (pretty decent, yet forgettable)

Black Hawk Down (2001) A (excellent job of putting you in the middle of the action)

Hannibal (2001) D (Hard to believe that David Mamet wrote the screenplay and Scott directed this turd)

Gladiator (2000) A- (good style, decent acting, and good action)

G.I. Jane (1997) B (not bad)

White Squall (1996) B- (not bad)

Thelma & Louise (1991) B- (somewhat overrated)

Black Rain (1989) B (need to see it again)

Someone to Watch Over Me(1987) (been too long)

Blade Runner (1982) A+ (masterpiece)

Alien (1979) A (Excellent)

Overall a director that I like, though he can be somewhat hit or miss.

For ordinary men, it's a burning, fiery furnace.
