I never saw it way back. The acting and charicaturizing of cartoon pilots as junior high punks made me puke. The sound track was pure kiddy music. It was a partial rip off of "Officer and a Gentleman", Richard Gere, made a few years prior, including Cruise showing up on a motorcycle. Can't get much more plagiaristic than that. And always the local girl to be won.
If anyone wants to see "Maverick", I recommend that they do not go back for a primer.
and less than zero interest in seeing it.
"Trying is the first step towards failure."
I don't know it's not like the US Military or the US Police force are only letting in "academics and you know "thinkers."
They're letting in borderline school bully apes who get off on killing. portraying them as steroid-filled baboons isn't the worst thing in the world - and they do present the Goose types too.
Not that I think either Top Gun was particularly good. You basically come for the planes. Which tend to be more 3 dimensional than the characters.
But then remembered my original thoughts on the first movie, my memory of the overall plot I think was best.
Spoiler, but the second in a lot of ways repeated the first. The motorcycle, the girl in the bar, singing... I enjoyed it, but it could have been better yet IMO.
