    BAMF movie. It was all you would have expected. They did a great job and will not disappoint. 100% needs to be seen in theater with sounds ... Will see it again in iMax, 100%.

    Curious to hear @Swaye's take. Either from ptsd or yeah-fucking-right-aint-going-down-like-that.


    The ugly: Maverick's token sidekick's name is Hondo. FTG.

    I'm the one American who has never seen Top Gun

    What is your major malfunction, Pile? (FMJ, but still...)

    I haven't seen more than a few scenes on TBS or TNT, either.

    In terms of the box office, he's one of the greatest actors of our time.

    I'm kind of neutral on the guy. I've enjoyed some of his roles, but tend to view him as over rated.

    If you’ve seen one, you’ve pretty much seen them all.

    Thank god for Rebecca Demornay and Lia Thompson.

    Other than that, fuck Tom Cruise.

    Risky Business and All the Right Moves sex scenes are available for free.

    It's cheaper to Cruise at home.

    One of my dads had a brief cameo at the end of the original, as he was working the flight deck the day they filmed the final scene. Or at least that's what he tells us, as it's just a bunch of guys in helmets rushing the planes. For this reason, and because awesome, I finally introduced my kids to Top Gun just last week. Daughter instantly got bored. Son LOVED it.

    I got to thinking about it afterward, and--homoerotic volleyball (NTTAWWT) aside--it was pretty much a perfectly executed movie. There was cheese and tropes and Durka Durka Jihad galore, but the plot made sense, pacing was spot on, characters were developed, good story arc, redemption story for the main character was well executed. I really think were Plinkett to review this movie, he'd be left with nothing but poking fun at the cheesy details.

    Huge omission from the movie bracket challenge. I keep repeating "good execution," but that's what this one really comes down do: It has to be one of the better executed simple popcorn movies of all tim.

    I may said this on hear before but there’s a scene in Singles where the main characters are having lunch in Pioneer Square and a Gai’s Bakery truck drives by. I’m convinced that was Old Man Nacho delivering bread to the masses.
