So “Top Gun: Maverick” is finally here. It has been in the theater for a long while now but I haven’t gotten to it until now. Finally, I just got around to seeing it in the theater ’cause I wanted to get my chance to see it in theater before it stopped playing. I know it’s gonna be in theater for a while longer since it’s making real big money right now.
I’m a huge “Top Gun” fan. Love the first movie so much and the second one is just as good. Actually, “Top Gun: Maverick” is even better than the first.
All the positive reviews and the buzzing of this film is not for nothing ’cause the film is actually very good. Even though the second one is new and going different directions, it still has the feeling of the first one as a way to keep the fans happy. I think it was perfect all around. Good acting, good writing and good directing. What I was most impressed with was how all the flying was done for “real”. The flying scenes were a blast to watch, more fun than the first one. It was very realistic, crazy… and best of all the movie doesn’t take itself serious. For once, a movie with no left-wing politics and no woke bullshit. I think that’s one reason the film is such a hit ’cause it pretty much stays away from political bullshit and doesn’t ram any propaganda of any kind down your throats.
This was indeed Tom Cruise’s best movie in a long while. His acting was really good in this one too. People hated on Tom Cruise for years and people are just starting to come around on the guy and just realizing that man is talented after all which is nice to see really.
Since “Top Gun: Maverick” is making mad money, I read the cast and crew are already talking about making a third one so it could end up being a trilogy? Probably.
I’m glad I went and saw it finally. You should definitely go see it if you haven’t yet.
At the Cannes Film Festival during a Q & A session, Tom Cruise says he is a huge movie buff like the rest of us. He says he goes to the theaters to see every new release that comes out. He says he’ll sit in a theater with a full crowd and he’ll show up earlier so he can watch all the trailers. While he does go to the movie theaters on a regular basis, he goes incognito… meaning having one’s identity concealed… he just goes to the theater with a baseball cap on and I’m sure he wears it pulled down so he don’t get recognized. If Tom gets recognized and walks in a movie theater full of people, he could get mobbed by fans, ya know?
Since Tom likes to go to the movies pretty often, you gotta wonder if he went and saw “The Batman”, “Spiderman: No way Home” and even “The Northman” (his ex-wife, Nicole Kidman has a role in that film, btw). I bet he did went and saw all three of those movies. haha….
Anyway, since Tom likes to talk about being a huge fan of cinema himself, I’m sure he doesn’t watch his own movies though. I’m sure Tom has his own movie theater at his home with surround sound where he watches BluRays, DVDs, VHS’s… even laser discs (remember those)?Just think how huge Tom’s movie library at home it must be? I’m sure he’s got a huge wall full of BluRays/DVDS/VHS for sure, I would think.
Just imagine sitting in a movie theater and Tom Cruise is sitting next to ya watching it and you didn’t even know it was him after all that time?
Since Tom has such a busy schedule with his career and all, how does he find the time to hit the theaters? Well where ever Tom is filming a movie somewhere around the United States, I’m sure he goes to the nearest theater when he’s on a break or a day off. Tom is working on movies constantly himself but I’m sure the director lets him have a break on occasion.
Since today is the first day of San Diego Comic Con, the “Top Gun: Maverick” trailer was shown there exclusively and now here it is online for all to see.
This is a very impressive trailer and I got goosebumps watching it. I know some of you out there may think “Top Gun” doesn’t need a sequel and I know some will be laughing about it but I think a “Top Gun” sequel will work. After you see this trailer, maybe you’ll agree now?
I’m a huge fan of the first “Top Gun” movie. I love it so freakin’ much and I can’t wait for this one. I had a feeling that it would be more like the first movie except the filming technology has improved it looks like.
No matter what your thoughts on Tom Cruise are, I bet you’re getting pumped for this movie. I know I am. I’m definitely gonna see it when it comes out for sure.
