Movie of the Day – Top Gun

Today, we lost an amazing director.  A man whose nail biting, tense action thrillers have been a favorite of mine for a long time.  Tony Scott died Sunday evening and reports are coming in about the circumstances of his death, his suicide by jumping off a bridge, possibly brought on by his recent brain tumor discovery.  It’s hard to see someone go like Tony Scott who has brought us amazing films that have become iconic.  Days of Thunders, Beverly Hills Cop II, Man on Fire, Crimson Tide, True Romance and countless others.  Today, this post is about Top Gun, one of his best films, even with all the bromancing that has come out of that film, he still managed to create an amazing movie about fighter pilots that is both intense with action scenes and meaningful with the bromantic scenes.

It also managed to have one of the most kick ass soundtracks with Kenny Loggins. Berlin, and that theme song that just fucking shreds.  It is the encapsulation of 80s filmmaking and forever will be remembered for undercut subtexts of shirtless volleyball playing for no reason what so ever.  Enjoy the medley of clips and soundtracks.

RIP Tony Scott.

For the ladies
