Top Gun

This one’s the turning point: the moment when Tom Cruise became the biggest star on the planet, with a year-end No. 1 movie to prove it. Seen in the cold light of day, Tony Scott’s movie is ridiculous: endless aerial dogfights, tons of shirtless bro brooding, a soundtrack on steroids, Cruise playing volleyball on the beach—in jeans. He’s better in other movies.
