I’m a child of the 80’s which means the original Top Gun movie was HUGE for me. The action, the suspense, the amazing airplane dogfights, the hot guys playing volleyball on the beach. All of it. In the last couple decades I’ve become less enamored of Tom Cruise, as the weirdness of his personal life and religious beliefs have come out, and I haven’t seen many of his recent movies. But I decided I needed to see Top Gun: Maverick and I’m so glad I did. It was AMAZING!!! So freaking good! Go see it. But watch the first one again beforehand so you remember it because there are a lot of references and callbacks.
