Original Top Gun Dale "Snort" Snodgrass flew for the movie, and has flown >4800 hours in the F14 Tomcat. This photo: "Lets Buzz the Tower", was snapped during a 1988 airshow as he whipped his jet past the USS America. This is a popular post.
Sad and true story about singer Ritchie Valens. This is when I was first introduced to Lou Diamond Phillips and how films could have entertainment value and history. This was after all 1987 and the birth of the VHS was everywhere.
Loved it. Excellent survival film about a group of oil pipe workers stranded in the Alaskan wild after a plane crash. Scariest movie I've seen in a long time. Liam Neeson, and the rest of the cast, including Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Joe Anderson, Dallas Roberts and James Badge Dale do an excellent job. It's an action movie filmed like an indie with good strong heart. I'd buy it.
