Top Gun vs. Minority Report (w/ Tom Reimann and Abe Epperson)
The Canon #117 August 28, 2017
This week, Amy is joined by Tom Reimann and Abe Epperson of the podcast Cracked Movie Club to pit two Tom Cruise films against one another: “Top Gun” and “Minority Report.” They discuss the usage of “Top Gun” as a military recruitment tool, as well as the film’s unapologetic hyper-masculinity. Then, they discuss the theme of privacy and the use of CGI in “Minority Report” before giving their final arguments. Which Cruise flick will find its way into The Canon?
