I think we all know why you like it. Need a more credible source.

Did a quick search to try to find ther users with Top Gun names, and couldn't find any. No Goose, No Ice Man, no Viper or Slider, no Jester. Closest I could find was wolfmantaxi

Important question:

Does this film feature or at least give a strong nostalgic nod to the song Danger Zone by Kenny Loggins?

It gives a lot of strong nostalgic nods to many iconic parts of the original movie, including Danger Zone.

I hate Tom Cruise and his crazy Scientology, but Danger Zone might tip the balance for me.

was talking to someone yesterday who told me the theater erupted in applause when Danger Zone started (I also saw that soon after the original one came-out, military recruiment increased by 300%)

In 2004, I was in a [Top Gun] CS: Source clan. I was [Top Gun] Maverick and my roommate was [Top Gun] Iceman. That was the entire clan.

Anyway, I saw the movie on Saturday and liked it a bit but had to explain some stuff to my wife who wasn't quite up to speed with all the lore from the first movie. She was really annoyed at how

<spoilers>

Mav and Ice kept ending their texts with periods.

lols, old people.

Is there value in seeing it in the theater vs waiting till it hits streaming?

I'm behind, I need to take the kid to see Dr. Strange, and then this one. But shit, it's hard to find the time.

The obvious answer is yes. This is exactly the type of movie you want to see with a ridiculous sound system and giant screen.

Hell I saw it at a theater that had moving seats (first time I've done that).

Yep. It was the first movie I have seen in a theater since the pandemic, and it was well worth the theater experience.

They actually had Navy recruitment booths in cinemas when the first one came out, knowing full well that maybe 1% of the people that they got to sign up would actually end up seeing the cockpit of a Navy aircraft lol. In general, the military/government is VERY willing to work with Hollywood when it comes to any movie that presents the military in a positive light (even the bad movies). In this case, the movie studio only had to pay for the fuel for the planes -- the Navy provided the actual aircraft, flight crew, pilots, etc. free of charge. To them it gave lots of additional experience to their crew.

I work for NASA and we actually have a group who's sole purpose is to advise movie/TV studios. I can't remember which Transformers movie it was, but one of them had a bunch of stuff of space stuff including the moon landing and whatever. They had a bunch of stuff set up down at KSC and NASA employees were allowed to go up and check out the transformers models between shoots and stuff.

Finally got to see this with the family on Tuesday. I'm a huge aviation nerd and have watched the original Top Gun countless times (mostly the Rifftrax version though). Maverick was an amazing movie and in my opinion topped the original by a good bit. And as others stated, this movie is DEFINITELY a movie to watch at the theaters with a great sound system.

It's a great, fun movie. There aren't very many of those anymore.

I didn't realize it until someone else pointed it out, but the final mission in the movie was almost exactly the Star Wars Ep 4 trench run if it used real aircraft and pilots.
