Recent news has Paramount Pictures making a sequel to TOP GUN, with Tom Cruise circling the role... (I informed JPP of this and he is downright GIDDY!!!) BUT, I am going to see the REAL guys this weekend! Cannot wait. I have seen them, and their Naval counterparts, and it is a sight to behold.

I think there was a doc who said they were trying to get a flight on a fighter jet, did that ever happen?! (Not sure if it was PGG or Trinity or someone else). Anyway, if you've never been, check out the TBirds and BAngels websites and make a trip of it!)

Anytime I hear the term "jarhead" I cannot help but think of this movie with Van Peebles and Eastwood, when Mario went all gung ho and disrespecting on Clint... with SWEDE.

SCREW IT!

"Top Gun" was a US Navy themed film. The "counterparts" would be the Air Force (like the Thunderbirds picture you posted). The way you've written sounds like you are going to see the Blue Angels this weekend.

Here in HI, the ground show for the Air Force at Hickam AFB was MUCH better than what the Navy/MC had at Kaneohe Bay, but the actual, nuts and bolts air show by the Blue Angels was superior to the Thunderbirds.

Yeah, I think the large hi-res image of the AF THUNDERBIRDS posted following my sentence was self evident to describe that I'm going to see the.... AF THUNDERBIRDS.

I do agree having seen both AF and Naval shows that the blue angels are a little more fun to watch. But that's hardly a shot at the AF.

Was Top Gun a naval themed movie??!? I had no idea. Thanks for pointing that out....and actually, no, the theme of Top Gun is not the US Navy. You're confusing setting and plot with theme.

I'm just throwing this out there. I don't care who you are going to see or what the theme of Top Gun was. I'm sick of your d-bag comments d712. You have a problem, you can't take criticism from anyone. But you better learn to because as a resident you won't be right and you will get criticized for doing something wrong. Accept it and say, thank you may i have another. Now q up the no I'm right and you are wrong reply involving something about being a screenwriter/screenwriting.

Neither you nor Apollyon nor others are going to get a rise out of me on SDN anymore. I'm all Zen about it now.

One of my partners was talking about Val Kilmer the other day and we started giving him a hard time about the volley ball scene in Top Gun being his favorite part. I cued it up on my iphone netflix app, and every time I saw him that day in the OR I would start playing it for him. He didn't seem to appreciate it, everyone else thought it was funny.
