Huh??!! I had to chime in on this one. I love me some Top Gun, definitely my favorite movie when it came out (and I was 12). It inspired a life-long love of aviation and military aviation in particular. But I have to say that they got very little correct technically speaking. Very very little. I know the move well, I could make a list, but I wont. Great movie though.

For the other three, I agree, pretty good technical details, especially Zero Dark Thirty. Excellent, excellent excellent. When the door charges and grenades did not cause the hand-held equivalent of a thermo-nuclear detonation, I knew the producers were serious about making a somewhat accurate movie.
