Top Gun Maverick 

 

There are movies you watch for fun and then there are movies which remain with you as an exhilarating experience. This is that Experience.

 

I saw Top Gun first time in 1990. I was 9 and this was my first English movie. I was blown away. Must have seen it endless times at that time. Even got the Aviator Ray-Ban cos I was so smitten by Maverick. So, no wonder since the day sequel was announced i was waiting for this. Too much nostalgia associated. 

 

This surpasses the original in every way possible. The aerial shots are breathtaking, the infighting, the dogfight, the F-18's, the F14, the team he trains, the love story going on, the call backs to the original, the small cameo from his only friend from that time, the music score from the original. Everything was gelled so well together. 

 

There is no doubt Tom Cruise is the biggest star in Hollywood. The amount of dedication and hard work he puts in to make every movie is absolutely amazing. Do watch the making on you tube to see how he does all the stunts himself. And he is 59, freakish.

 

This movie belongs to an IMAX viewing. Nothing else will do this justice. Nothing else. 

 

I hope I can find time to go and watch this again otherwise will get the Blu ray as soon as it is out.

 

10/10 easily.

So we're getting two Pinocchio movies this year. 

This is not a movie. It’s a TV series. 

 

 

That is one hideous fairy at the end. I thought that is a kid show.

That was fast. Movie bombed it seems. If Thor also flops then MCU is in trouble.


Neither did it bomb, nor will Thor :giggle:

It made nearly 900 million USD, dude. :mellow:

 

Yeah, it's the highest grossing movie of this year so far.

And it didn't even release in China.

MOM was supposed to make a billion+. It also had a 67% drop in the second weekend. Cinemascore was also B+. Definitely below expectations.

Yes, I read this that it dropped massively next weekend. Worst in MCU history.
