Released back in 1986, (which despite what we might actually think is a little more than fifteen years ago…. scary), Top Gun has risen to become a true crowning glory of 80s cinema with its action-packed fighter jet scenes, heart tugging story of loss and struggle, one of the best soundtracks ever and….yes….sure the odd topless volleyball and locker room scenes. Well it was the 80s.

Cheese and wine! It’s only the weekend again!
So like a weary city slicker at the end of another long week, we find ourselves easing into a nice calm and relaxing Friday night as we unwind and let the week’s woes slip away. We’ll set up base camp in front of only the very best classic retro films with a glass of wine, more snacks than a kids party and only a night of R&R ahead. Settling in for the night, we’ll let the likes of Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks, Bill Murray, Michael J. Fox, and Robert De Niro take us to far and distant lands full of adventure and mystery. Bliss!
Have a happy retro weekend!
