I couldn't agree more.

Saw it tonight and I second the agreement. I didn't even see the first one, but it didn't matter. We are running out of big stars that can single handedly pull off a blockbuster this huge. Tom Cruise and Denzel may be the last ones.

The things Cruise did to make this movie happen and make it all accurate is something I don't believe another actor can ever pull off. 

He refused to make it unless the flight scenes were actual flight scenes in real planes. To know how they did it just look it up on YouTube. It's pretty cool. 

He insisted Val Kilmer have a part even though Kilmer can't actually speak to be understood anymore. 

There's more that he did I just can't remember it all right now. But yeah I don't think we'll ever see anything quite like it again. Cruise is a dying breed in Hollywood just as Clint Eastwood is the last of his era. It used to be him, Will Smith and the random world ending or Star Wars movie that was a guaranteed blockbuster tent pole movie to kick off summer. Smith hasn't done anything in a long time and he's kind of a basket case. Marvel took over for the world ending movies and Star Wars is dead (thanks Disney). 

I did watch the original in the theater back in the day and it really was the opposite of what Maverick is in many ways but man you loved it anyway because you didn't know any better. And having to wait in real time for Goose's son to be the right age and Cruise to look the right age IRL instead of fake hair and make-up.... It's something else.

Adam Sandler's new movie called Hustle is pretty spectacular

I don't remember who, but someone on the radio commented that Top Gun did so well because people want to see real action instead of endless CGI and a movie supportive of the military and patriotism. I agree.

If y'all get a chance you should watch Only the Brave. It's a movie written from a GQ article "No Exit" about the 19 Granite Mountain Hotshots who died in that horrific Yarnell Hill Fire in AZ in 2013. It's a really good movie with a stacked cast and the director who did Top Gun: Maverick. 

I remember hearing about the fire and those guys dying and one survivor, Brendan McDonough, who wrote about it in his autobiography which I plan to read. Miles Teller played McDonough and I have to say that kid has talent. I can see why he seems to be everywhere these days. 

I highly, highly recommend this movie. It's on Amazon to rent.

We actually watched Sharknado tonight.. Believe it or not, it's not.. that.. bad. We made it all the way through near the end when our hero took a chainsaw and sawn through a flying great white. Sliced him right in half. At this point in the movie, I looked over at my wife and said bull [BLEEP]!!
She just looked at me funny and lol'd at me.. Me, burnt pretty good on a vegetable, lol'd too but didn't figure out why.

Until it hit me 5 minutes later and realized it took me an hour and 15 minutes into Sharknado to call bull [BLEEP] on something lolol

Silly Dinger, you're supposed to turn the brain off before those movies start.

The wife and I just watched Elvis. Meh. The production style is nothing like I expected, and it's presented from the perspective of Col. Tom Parker, his crooked manager. Plus, it's entirely too long, over two and a half hours. I would recommend waiting for it to hit the streams rather than pay the price of a ticket to not only save the price of a ticket, but for the sake of being able to pause it for an intermission break.

Those movies are giggle fests for the higher moments in life.

I watched Settlers on Hulu the other night. Interesting premise and good cast/direction but the story/plot leaves a lot of unanswered questions. Too many. Meh.
I'm condescending. That means I talk down to you.

Speaking of Elvis, when my mother came to visit back in 2016 I took her to see Elvis and Nixon.  The quality was pretty poor so when I heard of this one coming out, my expectations were low.  Although his Elvis movie has a 93% Like rating versus the 74% that Elvis and Nixon got.

Just watched Deliverance for the first time in probably 20 years.  I didn’t remember a lot of stuff from the movie.  Hell, it may well have been in the theater the last time that I saw it.

Me and some buddies watched Deliverance at the barracks in 1993. Man, what a mind screw. We followed it up with The Doors. That was an interesting afternoon.

I've been in the mood lately to watch Pulp Fiction. Great movie.

Oh, yeah, Deliverance is real good too.

Watched the old Rambo: First Blood

Forgot how awesome that movie was.. Brian Denaehe (sp?) plays one of the best [BLEEP] cops in all movies in my opinion.. His character is relentless in that movie. Almost comedic.. (if there is such a word.. if not, I call dibs!!)

It’s like you intentionally misspelled his name to be corrected in order to make that joke.  I appreciate that. I really do.   +1 for that.
