64. May 27, 2010 - Top Gun (1986)

The great thing about film is that regardless of how strung out or physically far-gone or crazy an actor becomes, you always have the work that they did when they were at the prime. Tom Cruise has real range in this. He's a cocky playboy, he's a serious daredevil fighter pilot, he's a man in love, he's a heartbroken friend - and he's believable as all of them. Meg Ryan makes a great guest appearance and Val Kilmer is suitably hateable as a rival pilot. Blink and you'll miss Adrian Pasdar from Heroes in a tiny role as a fellow pilot.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
