Ghost (1990)
Director: Jerry Zucker  Starring: Demi Moore, Patrick Swayze and Whoopi Goldberg
"After being killed during a botched mugging, a man’s love for his partner enables him to remain on earth as a ghost."
After Sam is murdered he reappears as a ghost to keep his fiancee, Molly, safe from his murderer; with the help of psychic Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg). As more information comes to light about Sam’s murder, Oda Mae acts as Sam’s mouthpiece to warn Molly. A great mix of funny and sad is accomplished as Sam tries to convince Oda Mae to help him and as Sam is remembered by Molly. As a sucker for romance this film ticked all the right boxes and  managed to steal a few tears. Whoopi Goldberg’s performance helped the film out of the depressing stage and into new light.

Top Gun (1986)
Director: Tony Scott  Starring: Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards
 “As students at the Navy’s elite fighter weapons school compete to be best in the class, one daring young flyer learns a few things from a civilian instructor that are not taught in the classroom.”
A fighter pilot who falls for his civilian instructor in the midst of fighting for the top spot at the Navy’s most elite pilot school. Top Gun gives a double kick of Action and Romance.Having heard lots of people talking about it, whether it be good or bad, I decided to give it a go and I was not disappointed! Cheesy? yes. Predictable? Almost. Re-watchable? Absolutely! Not too much action and not too much romance but enough to satisfy both genres and keep me interested. It also features a rather young and handsome Tom Cruise.
