Ridley Scott had gotten a reputation as a science fiction director in the ’80s with Alien, Blade Runner and Legend when he switched things up. Someone to Watch Over Me was an Earthbound tale of a cop (Tom Berenger) having to protect a witness (Mimi Rogers) from a killer. The film showed that Scott could work in a present day New York City and with characters that weren’t about to explode from aliens in their stomachs. The movie is coming out on Blu-ray as part of Shout Select which is great since Someone to Watch Over Me usually gets skipped when talking about Ridley Scott’s career. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:
