New TopGun trailer

Some impressive flying, assuming this is actual real footage, and not CGI.

Where's the conflict though.  If he's not shooting someone down I'm not interested.

It's Tom Cruise, He probably learned to fly, and bought an F/A-18 just so he could do his own stunts.


I suspect the power of nostalgia will suck me in, even though it's probably gonna suck.  I thought I didn't care, but the first few bars of that music went straight to my little 80's kid brain.

In today's era of Social Justice Warfare Maverick will come out as gay and then transition to a woman.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

So the Navy commissioned a 2 hour recruiting film ??
Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on,
for the motherland.

Are those F/A-18 Super Hornets in the trailer? Navy is/has retiring all the F/A-18 Hornets from combat duty.

I see they appear to have included a volley ball scene.

1:51-2:02 CGI. Lots of CGI.

Right there with you. The Tomcat at the end may or may not have caused me to squeal. Just a little. And watching a review of the trailer, heard the most hilarious term in a long time. Nostalgia boner. SWMBO was laughing her butt off at that one.

If your nostalgia boner lasts more than 40 years, should you call a doctor?

But we squids are the ones that started it way back when, what if it spreads to the other branches again?  =(

While the original may have helped put me in the Navy, I'll pass on this one. Looks terribly unrealistic. Maybe watch it on DVD just to see my old ship. The old ship on which I hear cruise was a complete ass to the crew while filming.

He was an ass during the first one. I knew people  at NAS China Lake (a lot of the flying scenes were done there) and in San Diego that had direct contact with him and the crew during filming. They had nothing good to say about the whole deal. :(

Maybe he's just an ass.

Maybe there's no "maybe" about it.
