'Top Gun' Director Tony Scott Dies After Jumping Off a Bridge: What Was His Best Movie?
Maverick, Iceman, Goose … 1986's megahit "Top Gun" is the best possible example of '80s cheese. And yes, we still watch it every time it's on TV.
"Beverly Hills Cop II"
The 1987 Eddie Murphy sequel was a box office hit, but it didn't do quite as well as the first "Beverly Hills Cop."
"Days of Thunder"
The 1990 auto racing flick is best known as the set where Tom Cruise met his ex-wife Nicole Kidman.
One of our favorite movies of the '90s, the 1993 Christian Slater-Patricia Arquette flick managed to be very sweet and extremely violent at the same time.
The submarine film starring Gene Hackman and Denzel Washington was no. 1 at the box office when it opened in 1995.
The 2010 Denzel Washington-Chris Pine action thriller about a runaway freight train was a hit with critics and at the box office.
"Enemy of the State"
The 1998 spy-thriller flick starring Will Smith and Gene Hackman was another solid hit for Scott.
"I can confirm that Tony Scott has passed away. The family asks that their privacy is respected at this time," Scott's spokesman, Simon Halls, said in a statement, according to The Associated Press.
Scott jumped from the Vincent Thomas Bridge spanning San Pedro and Terminal Island in Los Angeles Harbor, according to police. A suicide note was later found at his office, The Los Angeles Times reports.
The director, who was born in England, was "Alien" director Ridley Scott's younger brother. Among his action-packed films, Scott directed "Days of Thunder," "Beverly Hills Cop II" and, most recently, "Unstoppable," starring Denzel Washington. He was married to actress Donna Scott, with whom he had twin sons.
