The world lost one of its most entertaining directors Sunday afternoon when Tony Scott, 68, jumped to his death from the Vincent Thomas bridge in Los Angeles, Calif.

His body of work includes some of the greatest — and most loved — films of all time. Along with his brother, Ridley, the British-born filmmaker also co-produced some of the most popular series on TV, including “The Good Wife” and “Numb3rs.”

From “Top Gun,” to “True Romance,” here are eight of Scott’s best films that you should que up in Netflix tonight.

  • "Beverly Hills Cop II" was, for one reason or the other, one of the most anticipated sequels of 1987. The return of Alex Foley was a box office and audience hit.
  • "Days of Thunder" didn't quite live up to the hype surrounding its 1990 release, starring Hollywood's then it-couple, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman. Still, it became a cult hit when it came out on VHS.
  • Spy-thriller action film "Enemy of the State" is one of Scott's most entertaining films, starring Will Smith, Gene Hackman and Jon Voight.
  • "Man on Fire" explores the harrowing reality of being wealthy in Mexico City. It stars Denzel Washington (one the actor's many Scott films) as an ex-CIA agent turned bodyguard, who works to solve the kidnapping of the daughter of one of Mexico's wealthiest businessmen.
  • An awesome cast made up of David Bowie, Susan Sarandon and Catherine Deneuve made 1983's "The Hunger" one of the original vampire movies.
  • Whether you grew up in the mid-eighties or came into the world years later, you have undoubtedly seen Scott's most famous and iconic film, "Top Gun." We have the need; the need for speed.
  • In 1983, Scott helmed Quentin Tarantino's first script, "True Romance," the brutal, revenge-plot love story of Clarence Worley and Alabama Whitman. The film was a box office failure at the time, but it is Scott at his best.
