$2,000,000,000 over 40 films averages to about $50,000,000 per film... not that high a standard. Seems like an odd statistic to lead off with!

50Mil avg. is not bad it does show consistency.

I own them all, with the exception of Thelma & Louise.
Also: Domino, Deja Vu, The Last Boy Scout, Days Of Thunder and Body Of Lies."You and me are done, professionally"

I have to admit, this is the most awesome/worthy idea for a unique kind of "top 10" list that I've seen in quite some time. The Brothers Scott rule the movie theater.
Preferred Scott: Tony
I don't think I've ever met a Tony Scott film I didn't like. And, as time passes, I find more and more gems this guy has cranked-out. Even stuff that (on it's face, or because of a less-than-stellar title) doesn't seem like it's going to be worthy turn out to be tense, gripping movies.
Man On Fire was the turning-point for me: Not just waking-up to Scott's potential, but also to how Denzel's talent has grown over the years. I didn't see Man On Fire until home video (D-VHS, of all things) about 6yrs ago. Before that, I used to avoid Denzel movies. I saw him years back in that movie with Julia Roberts, and thought he was very poor. ...But his performance in MOF, and Tony's masterful direction, just make this one incredibly rewarding movie.
That's what I'll label all of the TS films: Action movies that are rewarding! Action movies that say to you, "Hello, I'm glad to see you brought your brain with you today, Sir! ...And your heart: Yes, we'll be using that, too."
Other great (T) Scott films:
Days of Thunder
Taking of Pelham 123
Deja VuA great day to be BLU...

Just a shout out to the Scotts, and everyone who likes them. Coming this July 24th is a movie that the produced called 'Life in a Day' which you simply must see! I saw it at Sundance and it's one of the most beautiful, moving movie experiences I've ever had.

I thought Man On Fire was dreck. Good first half, but the second half is ridiculous. When Denzel is firing rocket launchers in downtown areas, yet still able to stay under the radar, we're in comic book land.

I think to get a true representation of how successful their movies are (monetarily) you'd have to do an average of budget costs vs. box office sales/home video sales.

i love Man on Fire. i never got the low RT rating. i view it as one of the only two films that isn't hacked to some extent by Tony (the other being Crimson Tide).
the one i really hate on that list is Enemy of the State, which IMO, is droll, preposterous, and also a bit boring. but the #1 reason why i think it sucks is due to the fact that Scott and the writers lazily reused/stole the climax of his previous film True Romance (a great picture thanks mostly to Tarantino) where it worked to very lesser extent than the original use of it.
