RIP Tony Scott

From flying jets and pulling Kelly McGillis to stopping a runaway train and saving the day, Tony Scott delivered when it came to action films. I’m sorry to hear he’s no longer with us.

Man on Fire
– Denzel Washington kicks ass!

Enemy of the State
– Paranoia!

Crimson Tide
– Subs + nukes!

True Romance
Patricia Arquette! Mad gun fight!

The Last Boy Scout
– Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans kick ass!

Top Gun
Kelly McGillis!

The Hunger
– Catherine Deneuve + Susan Sarandon! Bowie! Vampires!

Amazing noses: Jennifer Grey

Jennifer Grey, Dirty Dancing

Is there a more debated nose job than Jennifer Grey’s? Was it a no win situation? The fame from Dirty Dancing reset by plastic surgery* that unlike a desperate breast enlargement (see Dana Plato) was presumably something she wanted for the best of reasons. But I was surprised to read she was in House’s season 7 episode Unplanned Parenthood. Didn’t recognize her. But if she’s still acting, and happier, that’s not really her problem, is it?
