Top Gun
1986

Director: Tony Scott
Cast: Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, Tom Skerritt

This manipulative, audience-pleasing hit film about a cocky fighter pilot looks and sounds like an overlong music video (which was something original at the time). If you’re desperate to find some redeeming features, the flying scenes are flashy and there are some catchy tunes on the soundtrack.
