Top Gun: Maverick should’ve been landing in our cinemas around about now, but at present it’s changed course for a December arrival, but for all we know it could be circling overhead for even longer at the rate things are going. There are, however, plenty of films still out there in the world, one of which is the original Top Gun, directed by Tony Scott, so we’re here today for a Tony Scott retrospective!

In Jay’s absence Rob, Joel and Heather all signed up to be Richard’s wing-men and wing-woman to discuss a meticulously curated half of Tony Scott’s career, and with a sadly unavailable Aaron sending in messages from back at base.
