Considering how great movie making has become in recent years, I am damn excited to see that movie. Navy jokes aside, Top Gun is the movie I grew up watching every single day, and I can’t wait to see the new one.

Bunch of people sent me the link when I was flying today, it was rather surreal walking off the flight line watching the trailer for Top Gun 2.  The original was really what made me want to be a pilot as a young kid. After a really fun flight today and seeing that trailer was a awesome feeling. I hope the movie is as awesomely cheesy and filled with sweet flying as the original, and that it inspires and sparks the dream of flight in some of today’s kids like it did me.

With as many people on this board influenced by the original, myself included, I can only assume there will be some spillover to the Air Force as well

Everything old is new again, but this got me nerding  out as well.  If you are a fan of Star Trek, you’ll probably like this.  I love to see Jeri Ryan at it again.

Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.

Loooooong movie.

Really liked Brad Pitt's character and performance.

No skin from Margot Robbie (which is a pity...)

Interesting handling of the Manson murders.

Unfortunate that Lena Dunham was in it (my keyboard threw up a little typing that...)

Vintage Tarantino.

Just watched the Netflix Original “The Red Sea Diving Resort” about the true story of Israel’s Operation Brothers that occurred between 1979-1984 to save Ethiopian Jews.  

Very interesting story that I’ve never heard of.

Ad Astra....

Daddy issues in space is the most succinct description of the plot. 

Fair overall with good special effects and action sequences (questionable physics in some scenes) but overall story too drawn out to rate higher.  Wait till it is on Netflix streaming if you are thinking of going to see this.

Not a movie, but an HBO series.  Watched a couple of episodes of Chernobyl on my flight back from Germany.  Wished I had started watching it earlier (Delta movies suck!).  Gonna pay for it via Amazon, as it's well worth it!

Downton Abbey - took my wife because chicks dig tea parties, chinless wonders, and snobby society b1tches who change clothes 6-7 times a day.

Basic premise - King of England coming to visit, so everybody panic, clean everything, speak dramatically of the importance of such a visit, etc.  Think of any four-star visit to your base and the wing commander goes into "paint this rock, hide that airman!" mode and you've got it.

Pretty harmless waste of 2+ hours except for the obligatory, but completely unnecessary to the story, gay equality scene.

In return, I'll gain a date to Ford v Ferrari later this fall and Top Gun 2 whenever it is released.

2 for 1, not a bad deal. Which one are you going to take your boyfriend to?
