Real life Top Gun. Thought this was cool and wanted to add it to the thread.

“On a cold November day in 1952, Williams shot down four Soviet fighter jets – and became a legend no one would hear about for more than 50 years.

The now 97-year-old former naval aviator was presented with the Navy Cross, the service’s second-highest military honor at a ceremony Friday in California.“

Finally got around to watching this because I guess I hate America and have misplaced priorities. 

Honest thoughts - there were a lot of super cheesy lines and too much call back and imitation of the first movie. Also a lot of it seemed extremely unrealistic and implausible - not sure how anyone could believe that any of this could ever happen in the modern day and age. 

The touch football scene was really fucking stupid, too. We already had a super gay beach scene in the first film - we didn't need another one.

I'm just kidding. It was fucking stupid but I loved it. It was better than the original. That's how you make movies.

We need more movies like that to bring this country together. I mean we really do. We've entered this bizarre era of dogshit where we can't draw people together anymore to experience something worthwhile at a movie theater.

This film reminded me of how it used to be - you used to make movies to get folks off their asses and have them go pay for a ticket to see your film. And then they shared that experience together. 

Now all any producer does is try and keep you hooked on watching their show on your Netflix or Hulu or HBO. You just sit at home and smash your head into your TV screen while you avoid interacting with other human beings. 

I don't think it has to be that way. I think there's still an audience for going out and interacting with your community and sharing a viewing experience. 

It might sound really fucking stupid or like a bizarre unrelated rant but this movie kind of rekindles my hope that that could still be a thing. And we all know that cinema dying is a very real thing. 

So - I don't know - give that shit best picture. Maybe it will wake the industry up a bit.
