Clueless (Amy Heckerling, 1995) Sex. Clothes. Popularity. Is there a problem here? | Is there a movie as synonymous with the 90s as Amy Heckerling’s Clueless? Hard to say. What we can say is that this is one of the Rio’s most requested titles – even the staff have been asking for it! Adapted from Jane Austen’s novel Emma, Clueless is a classic high school comedy about a rich, do-good student in Beverly Hills named Cher (Alicia Silverstone) who tries to boost a new pupil’s (Brittany Murphy) popularity, while reckoning with the inevitable affairs of the teenaged heart that get in the way. Also starring Paul Rudd, Donald Faison, and Stacey Dash.

Top Gun (Tony Scott, 1986) Talk to me, Goose. | Top Gun is 110 minutes of pure, Reagan-era awesome. Tony Scott’s incredibly visual, kinetic story about a “maverick” fighter pilot in training (Tom Cruise) who gets his breath taken away while never losing that loving feeling for his civilian instructor (Kelly McGillis), is a quotable feast that features a killer 80s soundtrack (Kenny Loggins!) and some seriously awesome mid-air dogfights. Also starring Tom Skerritt, Anthony Edwards, Val Kilmer, Meg Ryan, and Tim Robbins.
