    My very “BEST ACTOR AND IDOL TOM CRUISE” keep it up always.

  2. What a great movie back in 1986, must of seen three-four times since it came out. (I am a USAF retiree non-flying) and always enjoyed the movie. Looking forward to seeing the sequel when it comes out. Tom is a great actor and still is.
