That is true. And that is why I compared Robin Hood, a true lightweight among his filmography, with their entire combined output.If I should compare him to Bryan Singer or Joss Whedon, I can. Or Zack Snyder or Michael Bay or JJ Abrams. The list of quality directors with better CVs than Ridley Scott is pretty short. Especially wrt genre films. I didn't love Prometheus either, but at least it was a spectacular failure. I'll take that over a generic turd like Star Trek Into Darkness. Even though Prometheus was a failure, I am more interested in a sequel to that than I am a Star Wars 7 by JJ Abrams ably assisted by a boardroom of Disney Executives.I don't mean to be short and dismissive on this topic, especially among my friends in this thread, and I have no problem with badmouthing some of his films. But this is Sir Ridley Scott, and we are five pages in on excitement threads for X-Men: Days of Future Past and Godzilla. I'm no movie snob, but this is a movie board, not IGN or SuperHeroHype. Film is a visual medium and Scott is a master with an enviable filmography. It is disconcerting to see him and his work a bit run down at HTF. I'm taking it a little personally, I suppose.
