    If anybody needs to get their fix of the original film, it is showing Sunday (8/4) and next Wednesday (8/7) on the Big Screens across the U.S.A.

    Oh yeah, if you have some loose, disposable income, Val Kilmer has quite a bit of Iceman paraphernalia for sale:

    Or you'd only be banging at four fifths of your capacity?

    Or you'd only bang her 4 out of 5 times?

    Or you'd only be able to bang 4 out of 5 times?

    Saying "Well, I'm old and fat now" like the latter condition is inevitable definitely amuses me.

    This makes no sense, but I understand what you are going for, which amuses me.

    I get all the worry about use of the appropriate aircraft...

    But, nobody is concerned for an encore of the up-high down-low high five circle slap??? 🧐

    Top Gun: Maverick

    I saw it opening weekend and agree it was great.
    I can take it further in that my friend was full on loud weeping at one point.
    It was embarrassing but shes always a bit dramatic and at least others were being loud af cheering, etc.
    I was 2 seats away so I also pretended I didnt know her

    Same. Been 14 years since I was in a theater too. People cheered like crazy at the end. Was a very cool experience and I just loved every second of the movie.

    You guys do know that a Captain in the Navy is an O-6 right? Maverick was a Lieutenant (O-3) in the original movie.

    Dang, it got moved back so many times that I forgot about this thread.

    Saw it on the second show,on the Thursday before the "official" release.

    Closest thing to an amusement park thrill ride I have seen in the theaters since Aliens.

    I imagine that seeing it on IMAX or in D-Box would be a blast.

    I was pushed all the way beck in my luxury recliner with a white knuckle grip on the armrests for much of the duration.

    My 2cents worth:

    TOP GUN: MAVERICK
    FKing A!!!
    And by "A", I mean AWESOME!!!
    If you loved the original then there is virtually no way you won't love this sequel.
    It's teeming with nostalgic aural and visual callbacks, insane aerial sequences, and sweaty bodies, all delivered at a breakneck pace
    Sure, the characters, are pretty one dimensional (but are instantly likeable) and the plot may be directly lifted from Star Wars: A New Hope, but you don't go see a film like this for rich exposition and intricate character development. No, a film like this is all about the rush.
    On that front it delivers and then some.
    And say what you will about Tom Cruise, but that man's smirk is infectiously charming.
    I cried, I laughed, and I had white knuckles throughout.
    There were a few missed opportunities in regards to added nostalgia (where were Viper, Jester, Cougar, Wolfman, Slider, Merlin, Sundown, Hollywood, and Stinger?), but this was a thoroughly satisfying giant tub o' popcorn blockbuster.
    Definitely best seen on the biggest screen possible.

    Thought it kicked ass as well. Tom Cruise is easy to make fun of but he is a legit movie star he plays a damn good fighter pilot, and for that, I salute him.

    It was all of two seconds but the wing condensation shots on the jets as they go mach looney over the water entering the canyon during the mission is the stuff the big screen was made for.

    I was Entertained.

    Although I have to admit that the story would fit on a napkin. And nebulous "adverseries " with "5th Generation fighters" are kind of Cheesy.

    Great Action and Acting.

    Im kinda with you. I mean without spoiling anything, they actually re-used the beginning of this movie from the old movie.
    I mean the whole movie is an exact retread.
    Well maybe I'm the faggot America
    I'm not a part of a redneck agenda

    I have to say im not very well versed in part one, but I thought it's not As an annoying carbon copy of it's original as the force awakens.

    I just thought it's a copy of All things 80s, but done with a ironic nod towards the audience.

    Definitely better than the Force Awakens retread.

    Oh, and not being well versed in part one is practically an act of treason in the USA.

    After 30 years I would hope the character was promoted from Lieutenant to Captain!

    So in the time it took to release this movie, Iceman became Otzi and already exceeded most post counts?

    Impressive.

    Movie was awesome. My 15 year old and wife were hoping for a volleyball scene, so when the beach football scene came on, they cheered. Proud papa moment for sure.
