Top Guns: 10 Military Movies That Sparked Our Gay Fantasies
All kidding aside, there has never been a movie like the 1986 Tom Cruise flick Top Gun. In fact, its unparalleled popularity is why the film has recently been re-released in an IMAX 3-D Experience, and a limited edition 3-D Blu-ray is available Feb. 19.
Top Gun has an attractive cast of A-List actors playing a cocky, competitive bunch of pilots shredding the skies. Its soundtrack is still famous and so is its homoerotic interpretation, where a "boys only" gang of pilots tries to divert Cruise's affections from a comely lass.
