TOP GUN
   The Cast  IMDb Rotten Tomatoes

The movie that made Tom Cruise a household name and an International star. When was the last time you heard of someone joining the air cadets? I had two middle school best friends who joined the air cadets because of this film. For me, it was the look and machismo of fighter pilots that had me hooked--the friendly competition and dogfighting timed with a catchy soundtrack completes it. Absolutely one of Tony Scott's greatest film achievements. Who makes epic movies like this anymore without the use of CG?
