Too bad Tom Cruise is a cult leader. He’s great at what he does.

I never saw the first Top Gun. It was released two days before I was born. My parents had the VHS all through my childhood. It always looked lame to me. Like a love story with planes.

This one is lots of fun, the comments about it being a 2 hour Navy commercial are accurate but still, what a fucking thrill. Jets jets jets. Cheesy ass dialogue. I liked how they got Maverick into his original plane. The plot twists and turns just like the jets on the obstacle course they’re expected…
