One of Tom Cruises' most divisive action movies rises to the streaming Top 10 thanks to a notch ...

It appears like Top Gun: Maverick is set to go down as not just one of the years best blockbusters, but one of Tom Cruises'' finest-ever movies. That''s no mean feat based on his stellar career, no matter what a sequel will be released 36 years later. However, there may be a doubt that the actor already made a spiritual successor of sorts, including Days of Thunder, who was subsequently dismissed as Top Gun with racing automobiles.

While it was thought to have been dismissive at the time, it was certainly not too far off the mark in reality. Cruise plays a hot-headed rookie who clashes with his peers and assorted veterans before ultimately forming a close connection with his one-time rival, who sees them put their differences to one side by the time the third act rolls around, and theres also a love interest encountered along the way.

Tony Scott''s presence is apparent behind the scenes, as he was on Top Gun, and the comparisons pretty much invited themselves. Days of Thunder was a decent-sized box office hit after earning $158 million on a $60 million budget, but critics and audiences were disappointed.

With Top Gun: Maverick on its way to theaters in a few weeks, fans have decided to put their own hands back on the Cruise back catalogue. Even if you were wondering about his first gig as Pete Mitchell, here''s how to see it.
