  3. When Tom Cruise said that Top Gun: Maverick was a love letter to aviation, he wasn't kidding. Any scenes involving aircrafts, the visuals, the audio, and the scale and intensity are truly exhilarating. This is top class moviemaking. The first half is a super build-up, with interspersed action teasers, building up to this event that needs two miracles, which, true Maverick style, then ends up needing a few more. The movie has style, nostalgia, setting, and those heart-pumping and jaw-dropping moments in harmony, each aspect pushing the other one and highlighting it more. Cruise has aced the sequel summer blockbuster. The amount of care put into getting this to completion is evident. The in-flight and dogfight screen time is truly majestic. There is a love angle, there is past friction, a few characters returning, and a few new admirals getting pissed off. Above all, what I loved about the movie is that it made me believe that those were real naval fighter pilots out there, that the plane acrobatics were real, that it was a dangerous mission, that maverick was a superhero of a pilot who's spent his life flying and hasn't really grown up at all, and that he wields the plane like a goddamn extension of his body, like a samurai does with his sword. There are enough callbacks to the first one that you'd be remiss if you didn't really remember the movie, so if you haven't watched Top Gun: Maverick yet, I'd advise you to watch the first one and have it fresh in your mind when you go watch it in IMAX. Other theatres would be a compromise. There aren't many movies made these days that make you want to spend on the ticket, take time out, drive to the cinema, park, check-in, find a seat, and watch it with others who were driven just the same. Even though strangers, there is a subtext of a connection with everyone there. You know they are fans, and they've come to be entertained. And it's majestic. It's a thoroughly worthy evening out. Go for it. Catch it in IMAX. The few hundred extra rupees are more than worth it and will not make a difference in your life. Experiences like these just might. 9/10

  5. Watched it in 4DX. What an absolute blast I had. Right from the first scene, as the jets revved and as the seat started vibrating, I knew I was in for a ride. The sync was perfect, each jerk and movement on screen translated perfectly to my seat. And not overdone either. No distraction in emotional scenes, perfect harmony in action scenes. Totally totally worth it in 4DX. The wind, the jerks, the movements, the water...wonderful. And the movie is absolutely amazing in its own right too.

  10. Also big props to recreating the 1:1 opening of the original. And as much as the world have moved ( and the movie) has moved onto the F-18s , F-35s , sukhois etc. I still feel a special connection to the F-14 Tomcat. It has a more imposing silhouette to the others.

  12. Ford v Ferrari was great in 4DX, even if Top Gun can give similar experience, then it is no-brainer to go for 4DX than other formats. I will watch it next week once the prices drop a bit.

  13. This one was funnier but by episode 2, the chases became ridiculous. Editing needs lot of improvements.

  14. I felt that way in a few scenes where the movement was wild and erratic and wasn't really able to replicate some of the maneuvers being performed on-screen. But other than that it was pretty much in-sync and worked especially well in the third act. So much so that I can't have it any other way now. Doctor Strange isn't really a good choice IMO. I never even thought of watching it in 4DX. I feel the movement works well when it has to simulate being in something tangible on-screen such as a vehicle. The best 4DX experiences I've had so far are Ford v Ferrari and Top Gun, both majorly involving vehicular movement.
