Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five. This time out: To celebrate (hopefully) the release of Alien Covenant I present my top 5 Ridley Scott films.
Close but no cigar: Legend, Black Rain, Thelma & Louise
5 – The Martian
After years of sub-par films, Scott returns with this tense, funny and expertly directed film.
4 – Gladiator
Russell Crowe’s defining role, an epic sword and sandals blood spurting classic.
3 – Blade Runner
Blade Runner is much loved and with a sequel incoming, it’s time to revisit this real one off.
2 – Black Hawk Down
Raw, brutal and unrelenting – Black Hawk Down is one of the best modern war films.
1 – Alien
A classic genre defining film, Alien is simply one of the best horror science fiction films ever made and still today holds up well.
