Top Gun is 25

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

I know it's almost impossible to believe, but according to Mr Tom shouldalwayswearaflightsuit Cruise himself on twitter
"We're about to launch an International FAN GIVEAWAY TRIVIA QUIZ to celebrate the Top Gun 25th Anniversary Blu-Ray and @AMCtheatres - Ready?"

Suddenly I feel really old, so to cheer myself up I'm going to spend a few minutes reminiscing about top gun.

I was only a tender 13 years old when I saw Top Gun for the first time. I was at a birthday party but I can't remember whose. Of course everyone was swooning over this gorgeous bloke in his flight suit.

But I was way above that; I was fascinated in the flying and the plot.
Ok, you got me, I was no where near interested in all that, I was bowled over backwards by Mr Gorgeous (and it hasn't waned much since).

I dread to think how many times I've watched Top Gun over the last quarter of a century. I've come to love the music as much as anything else. I've often laughed at the complete lack of laws of physics. Bit I still love it.

The only downside for me now is watching a film where Mr Gorgeous is young enough to be my son, that feels a bit weird, but I get over it. I always go right back to being a teenager and love every second.

So who fancies reliving the 1980s with me?
A room full of girls, too much chocolate and Top Gun; anyone joining me?
