Top Guns: 10 Military Movies That Sparked Our Gay Fantasies
At a time when the military’s DADT policy was in full effect, out director Kimberly Peirce (Boys Don’t Cry) took on another of Uncle Sam’s unpopular practices in Stop-Loss. The story of soldiers and their loved ones challenging the military’s stop-loss policy — one that allows the military to retain and redeploy servicemen after they’ve completed their tour of duty — would tug on anyone’s heartstrings. However, the film’s message carried even greater weight for anyone whose life was impacted by DADT.
On a brighter note, Stop-Loss is jam-packed with Hollywood hotness. Ryan Phillippe, Channing Tatum, Timothy Olyphant, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Victor Rasuk are so hunky they even manage to make PTSD attractive.
