Death of Director Tony Scott

        Tony Scott, british director of many films from "Top Gun" in 1986, with Tom Cruise, who credits success from that movie, all the way to "Unstoppable" in 2010, with Denzel Washington. Tony Scott had committed suicide last night (August 19th, 2012) by jumping off the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, California. He was 68. He will surely be missed, and all of my thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones, friends, family, his brother who is also a famous director and movie maker Ridley, and his wife and kids. I may have not been the biggest fan of Scott's work, but the man had a distinct style and his 1995 film, Crimson Tide is a amazingly well directed film. He has had many successes over the years, many to be proud of, and he will always be remembered. May he rest in peace. (June 21, 1944-August 19, 2012)
