In the ninth episode Jason Koenigsberg and Rich Tola discuss the highest grossing movie of 1986, Top Gun. This is the film that made Tom Cruise one of the biggest box office stars of all time. Critics were unfavorable of the film but it did not stop audiences from buying tickets. Is this film worth revisiting prior to the sequel Top Gun: Maverick being released 35 years later, or were the critics right? Jason and Rich will decide if the original Top Gun is indeed a Reel Big Mistake.
*I neglected to mention Clarence Gilyard Jr.’s role as a tech guru working for the terrorists in Die Hard (1988), probably his biggest role.
