TOP GUN is one of my most favorite motion pictures. In fact ...
my fondness for TOP GUN competes well against my love of TNG.
I just have to know one thing, though:


Does anyone else using these boards love TOP GUN ... as much as I?


If so, please ... don't be afraid to gush over this Motion Picture ...
just as I often do!

It was entertaining. Not one of my all time favorites.


Nice to see that we "CAN" talk about other films, since this forum "IS" to be used as a room for discussing all films, not just "Star Trek" films.


After all there is a sub heading "Your chance to be a virtual film critic"


I do notice a serious lack of other films being discussed here. What's with that?


Paramount set this up so we even as fans of Star Trek can discuss other films even by other studio's.


This gives them insight and feed back for all future productions.

I'm totally available to discuss other movies & I hope the fans here, do!


But this thread is talking about TOP GUN - a movie whose epic saga ...
backdrop ... and romance eclipse - even surpass - GONE with the WIND,
in my opinon. This is the best movie in Tom Cruise's long and storied
cinimatic career. And Kelly McGillis was perfectly cast as "Charlie" ...



So beautiful, charming and "together." The supporting roles were also cast
brilliantly, including the likes of Val Kilmer, Tim Robbins and Michael
Ironside. TOP GUN wears its patriotism surprisingly well and seeing so
much real life military hardware in action is extremely impressive ...
And, yes ... the score's songs may seem dated at times, but they still work!


Paramount can still Take My Breath Away, with movies like STAR TREK (2009).

Sorry, Blockman, I see a Merlin in TOP GUN ... a Wolfman ... a Jester
... but there's no HOBBIT! I guess that brings us BACK to our TOPIC:



TOP GUN still holds up and I'm not a bit surprised. It has much to offer.
THIS is entertainment, at its FINEST! It's why I love HOLLYWOOD ...


and Paramount Pictures.

You'll be Pushing the Envelope ... off the very EDGE of your SEAT!!!

I keep thinking about the proposed sequel that Tony Scott
(TOP GUN's late director) was trying to put together. Despite
the heavy use of drones in the military, the Navy continues
to use Fighter Jets as an impressive show of power and prestige.


This sequel would've been impactful. But in a way, I'm glad it's
been abandoned, because I would not want anyone else playing
Charlie, but Kelly McGillis - who, unfortunately, has let herself
go, having turned lesbian and left the industry. But yeah ...


Sometimes I wonder what might have been. I'm just glad to have
the original movie to enjoy, ad nausium ... it's really potent stuff!

Hey, look! Maverick even has the same pose that
Frakes uses, when he's at Data's console! COOL!
