After more than thirty years of service as one of the top aviators in the Navy, Pete Mitchell still a Captain is still pushing the boundaries and avoiding advancing in rank which would see him grounded. He is about to make an unexpected return to Top Gun.
This has felt like one of the longest waits ever for a film to come out, considering the original release date was way back in 2020 and has since been moved so many times because of lockdowns and cinema closures.
BUT we are now getting so close and a new poster has been released and let’s face it I am super excited to eventually see Maverick again in Top Gun!
Tropic Thunder follows the story of a group of actors who are filming a big-budget water film but everything takes a dramatic turn when they actually become soldiers but still believe they are just acting for the film, with hidden cameras everywhere.
This is something I have been putting together for quite a long time now and I have held off posting it or even attempting to start the blog post in fear that I have forgotten and somehow missed a favourite film from the list. Barring in mind I got up to 72 films and then had to cut it down to the 50. I would like to make clear these are my favourite films, some might have happened to win Oscars as well and some certainly have not at all. The way I have decided on my favourites is the sheer joy they bring and the number of rewatches I have had over the years. While I have listed 1-50 a lot of them can be shifted around and changed with each other. It is going to highlight my love for musicals and for certain actors and actresses! I doubt it will contain many surprises though!
