    RIP. I gotta say, I like most of Tony Scott's films and this is news was really shocking to me. My favorites from him that I have seen so far are Top Gun, Days of Thunder, Unstoppable, Man on Fire, True Romance, and Enemy of the State. I'm going to make it a priority to watch some of his other films this week as a tribute to him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

    This is shocking, I wonder why he did it.

    RIP Tony, you made some great films.

    Another tragic reminder that people who have attained the kind of success in life that the rest of us can only dream about can still think theirs isn't worth living.

    Damn. That'll be weird now if I ever go back and listen to some of his DVD commentaries again.

    Think I've seen everyone of his films and TV series too.

    Saw on IE that they say he had brain cancer and jumped, but it's hard to understand why people decide to go that way, your family suffers either way.

    Well...he's at peace now. :rip
