Two of his earliest films, Alien and Blade Runner, helped define what the genre meant and showed us all what it can do. They have aged perfectly and are constantly looked back on for reference on how to do it right. But we’ve been without science-fiction from Scott since 1982 and while he’s made some great titles in that time, such as Gladiator, American Gangster and []
