    The first one didn't do much for me so I think I'll be skipping the 3 1/4 hours of this one...

    Most I've seen of the first one was in the break room at work. So ten minute bits after commercials.

    Went to see The Fabelmans Saturday afternoon and there were people with kids buying Avatar tickets. They must not have heard it was three hours long.

    It’s pretty sad went the only person who can make a decent movie is Tom Cruise but of course he had the US Navy helping him. The first Top Gun was such a successful recruitment tool they wanted a repeat. Nothing new but sad when Navy recruitment propaganda is the best entertainment.

    Never got around to seeing the first one. Saw the adverts for it and had zero interest.

    Wasn't a particular fan of Top Gun.

    The missus dragged us to see Maverick aka Top Gun 2...it wasn't terrible. Basically, a beat for beat remake of the first one.

    Me neither but the beach volleyball scene made girls horny. Always nice to be a sausage in the room when that happens.

    I liked it and think it was better than average. Silly improbable plot but I'll suspend disbelief, it was a much better film than the first one technically speaking....

    That's probably Tarantino's best performance. Usually he ruins every scene, but he wasn't god awful in that....

    He just about gets a pass playing weird and creepy in From Dusk Till Dawn but I'm sure it would have been better with someone else. Fortunately after the worst effort in Django ten years ago he seems to have stopped.

    I'm pretty he wrote Dusk but didn't direct it which might have let him focus a bit more...

    I will say the flight scenes in Maverick Top Gun 2, particularly the ones where the camera is showing a POV from the cockpit looking out or the ones where the camera is affixed to the plane, made it worth watching in a movie theater.

    After the 1st movie they literally had recruiting stations for the US air force in the lobbies of some cinemas, are they still doing that?

    Top Gun is Navy pilots.

    I remember seeing the original on a Sunday evening and there wasn't any recruiters in the lobby. I had dealt with recruiters the whole year being a senior in high school.

    The reason I mentioned it is that I finally watched Crimson Tide a couple of days ago and it had the same producer Jerry Bruckheimer who has made a crazy amount of movies many shit but super successful. I thought it was vaguely interesting that he made Top Gun in 1986 then apparently gave the navy a fake script for Crimson Tide because an American nuclear sub captain wanting to start a war could maybe be bad publicity and then when the navy found out they withdrew co-operation and some of it ended up having to be filmed using the French navy.

    I wondered if all that shit show is actually why there was such a gap between the first and second Top Gun movie.

    To me at least there is something a bit wrong that if you want to make a movie about the military it is so much easier if its a positive recruiting propaganda. I'm told the TG Maverick thing is very good but that's part of why I haven't got around to it.

    I'm not a huge Tom Cruise fan and haven't bothered to go see it. I doubt I would watch it if it was free on Prime.

    You get nadda help from the US military to make a movie unless they benefit in some way. The Top Gun movies are Navy recruiting propaganda. Well done propaganda at that. Why a second movie? Recruiting is way down.
