I wonder what sought of childhood he must of had, to make movies about monsters and killing people in all sorts of horrible ways.

Pretty sick mind.

Alien Covenant is so underrated. Really like that film.

The Martian is probably my favourite film of his.

Couldn't get into Blade Runner. Missed the boat on that one.

The Duellists - 2 hours of my life I'll never get back.

4/10
Sad for you that you didn't enjoy The Duellists, as it is a masterpiece of cinema, easily in his top 3. I once watched it 4 times in 2 days, couldn't get enough of it.

Caught up with 1492 recently, so I've finally finished his filmography.

Alien and bladerunner are massively overrated.

Gladiator and the martian are his best. Thelma and louise is not my thing so i wont rate that.
Gladiator & Martian are his 2 most normie movies really, giving-back blockbusters. There is a great deal of Ridley in them, but they are among his least distinct/auteurist works. As a result, they both hit a 8/10 ceiling with me.

Alien and Blade Runner will always have a special place in my heart, loved both as a teenager and will rewatch them every couple of yesrs. They both manage to create such truly immersive worlds in a way few films can. Didn't mind Prometheus and Covenant, still better than most sci-fi trash that gets released these days but overall fairly forgettable.

Unpopular opinion incoming - can't stand Gladiator, too cheesy for me to get into.
