Val Kilmer posted a trailer of the new Top Gun movie on his FB page.
Saw it yesterday online, looks interesting if unoriginal.
At 57 and 60, both Cruise and Kilmer have long ago aged out of playing fighter pilots, hardly believable in any military role.
This movie and soundtrack are tied to very pleasant memories so watching the trailer kicked up a lot nostalgia. The theme of technology playing an ever increasing role in our lives also plays strongly with me. So I'll no doubt go see the movie and enjoy it for what it is.
Talk to me Goose...
As Tom Cruise said in the trailer"Maybe so sir but Not Today"
Cruise also brought it Comic Con.
And a bit of controversy, as observers have noticed that the patch on the back of Cruise's leather bomber jacket, which read "Far East Cruise 63-4" and "USS Galveston" (which is a fictional ship, none of the three ships so named were air craft carriers, and the last of them was scrapped in 1975) with the flags of the USA, UN, Japan, and the Republic of China AKA Taiwan, in the original movie has been replaced with one reading "Pacific Ocean Cruise 66-46" and "United States Navy" with the flags of the USA and UN, and a white rectangle with a red triangle in it where Japan was and a red rectangle with a blue circle where Taiwan was. Apparently at the behest of the Chinese communists.
Saw that on FNC. Good grief it's only a movie.
I read they have a Chinese partner. Money, money, money, always follow the money. Pretty soon we'll be buying our bullets and tanks from China.
The Navy has plausible scenarios to explain that.
