I’m a big fan of Ridley Scott — if you don’t like “Blade Runner,” “Alien” and “Gladiator,” well, you and I aren’t going to agree much when it comes to picking a DVD for Friday pizza night. That being said, the filmmaker does leave me scratching my head sometimes (“A Good Year” was unwatchable, “Black Rain” was embarrassing, and “Hannibal” was just nutty). Today during that big football game, there’s a new TV spot for Sir Ridley’s newest film (and his fifth with Russell Crowe), which arrives this summer.
Hmmmm. How does it look to you?
