Synopsis

A double bill of Tom Cruise/Tony Scott action flicks. One of the definitive films of the 1980s, 'Top Gun' is a high-octane, high-concept mixture of slick images, hard action and non-stop music. Cruise plays Maverick, a young fighter pilot enrolled at Naval college, training with the most gifted flyers of his generation, and competing for the prestigious Top Gun award. Maverick soon establishes himself as one of the best in his class, but his insistence on doing things his own way soon brings him into conflict with his superiors and his main student rival: the Iceman (Val Kilmer). Celebrated for its vividly realised flight sequences, its keen sense of style, and featuring the Oscar-winning song 'Take My Breath Away'. Whilst in 'Days of Thunder' Cole Trickle (Cruise) dreams of winning the Daytona title on the stock car racing circuit, but his career seems to be ruined when he is involved in a near-fatal accident. However, with a young doctor (Nicole Kidman) inspiring his recovery, he determines to attain pole position on the track once more.
