Oh no! We might be forced to see F-18s, F-35s or more airplanes on the big screen. The horror, the horror.

Wonder if it will be with Navy co-operation or 100% blurry CGI.

Hey, I liked Top Gun.

But will the sequel be like Terminator 2 or Aliens, which were just as good as the original? Or will it be more like Star Wars Episode 1, complete with a Jar-Jar Binks?

By now, shouldn't Maverick have been promoted to admiral if he is still in the Navy? Or is he going to be the oldest lieutenant in the Navy?

My take on the original (1986) Top Gun...
The best part of the movie was the first 5 minutes or so, when they were launching Tomcats and the soundtrack was "Danger Zone".  After that, I thought it was overacted.

I wonder if the new one will have as good a beginning.  And maybe a better, more believable story?

Oh, yes.  My photo was taken aboard the USS America in the Adriatic in 1996, and they were flying missions into Bosnia.  I was there for one day as a VIP escort , which explains the blue "float coat".

Well, I'll have to refine my Tom Cruise filter before attempting to watch it.   I like the aerials from the original, but tend to fast forward through the other scenes, if I watch it at all.  To me, Mr. Cruise has been unwatchable since the couch jumping on Opra's show.

C'mon,might be OK. Not like TG1 was Citizen Kane, but it was still an OK popcorn movie back when. TG2 might too, or even more.

Would you rather have Top Gun 2 or Iron Eagle 8 or whatever number they're on lol....

Tom Cruise lost me way back at Vanilla Sky. I told my buddy if he was in the lobby signing autographs when we got out of that movie I would have slapped the sunglasses right off his face! He got me back at Jack Reacher.
Anyway it's not the actor it's the story, and besides Tom Cruise probably won't even be involved in this movie  it will and should be Top Gun 2 the Next Generation....
