Jade Rachel & I were watching Top Gun earlier. It’s one of her favourite movies and neither of us can believe how long its been since the film premiered. 30 years next week. Some parts of it have dated, some parts of it are now nostalgic in their 80s-ness. It’s still a damn good film though – and I must say that Tom Cruise in it still makes my heart go aflutter.
I adored him back in the mid-80s. I err on the side of caution in calling it his prime, per se, because he is still making some pretty awesome movies. But my favourites of his were all from that time – the mid 80s-mid 90s:
Top Gun, Cocktail, Legend, Born On The Fourth Of July, Rain Man, The Colour Of Money, Days Of Thunder, A Few Good Men, The Firm, Interview With The Vampire, Mission Impossible, Jerry Maguire…
Regan walked in while we were watching and just rolled her eyes. It’s such an old, dated movie. Starring that scientology freak. Or so she tells us.
But will she still be swooning over Zac Efron in High School Musical in 20 years time?
