Celebrating 25 years of the need for speed, the action-packed, sexy and breathtaking thrill-ride TOP GUN soars onto Blu-ray with a Digital Copy on August 30, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment. The story of an elite group of pilots competing to be the best in their class and earn the title of “Top Gun” captured the imagination of a generation and earned a worldwide box office of over $350 million. Tom Cruise is superb as the cocky but talented pilot known as Maverick and Kelly McGillis sizzles as the civilian instructor who teaches Maverick a few things you can’t learn in a classroom. Featuring a sensational soundtrack with unforgettable songs from the 80s including Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away” and Kenny Loggins’ “Danger Zone”, the film also stars Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards and Meg Ryan.
The TOP GUN Blu-ray includes a six-part documentary on the making of the film, a behind-the-scenes featurette, a survival training featurette, interviews with Tom Cruise, four music videos, commentary by producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Tony Scott, co-screenwriter Jack Epps, Jr. and naval experts, a look inside the real “Top Gun” and more.

I remember watching Top Gun on VHS when I was a young kid (yes, on video tape, boy do I feel old saying that, lol). If you a fan of this movie, then you will enjoy it on Blu-ray. The film looks more crisp with brighter colors and the audio also sounds better. In this film, Tom Cruise is a navy fighter pilot romances an instructor and loses his best friend in an accident -- something for both women and men to enjoy :). After all of these years, I still think the film is entertaining. I thought that the flight scenes are great and the movie as a whole was even more fun to watch with surround sound.
