saw it friday. plan on seeing it again. was fucking amazingly fun time.
if it's gay, i will tongue cruise's taint myself for giving me this kino
>tom cruise movie
It had every right to be that good
Sounds good but I can't pay to see a movie which panders to the chinks by changing his jacket
>he says this while ignoring the blatant gay and moron pandering in literally the rest of Hollywood
At least Tom Cruise actually delivers good movies
If he needs chinabux to make them then that’s a compromise I’m willing to make
Who gives a fuck about Taiwan
The Jacket is there in all of it's glorious red white and blue flags anon.
Tencent pulled out early in production when they realized the Chinese government probably won't like a pro-American movie.
>he doesn't know
Anon, the Taiwanese flag is on the jacket. I just came back from the film.
They reverted the change from the trailers. The jacket is unchanged. Now go support the movie if you want less chinese pandering in hollywood
based based based.
ill go watch it and pay to watch it
I heard China boycotted it so it ended up being Tom Cruise's biggest movie ever
It’s a literal 10/10 and the fact that it makes little dick asians seethe is an added bonus. You lost chang. Consider this revenge for all your bbc posting.
>it makes little dick asians seethe
Japan is looking forward to it though, they love Tom Cruise and even marketed the film through their biggest mobage
>he doesn't copy
Libs hate America so if you love her you're on the side of Conservatives

It's prepping muts to get sent into the grinder to against China. As a Muslim this pleases me, please kill each other.
> As a Muslim this pleases me,
kek the only thing America and China can agree on us the genocide of muslims
I thought they had removed the Taiwanese flag when I first saw the trailer last year.
China bitched anyway and pulled out. So they put it back on. Probably while dabbing.

>make sequel "passing the torch" movie that doesn't shit all over original character
now its time for Top Gun Phoenix
>Top Gun: Rooster & Hangman
i mean, I wouldn't mind, she cute af.
I originally thought she was a Hispanic but now I found out she's Italian so I think it's based
Same here, they did a really good job filling out that tickbox
Her and Bob would make a kino couple
I wish I was Bob so I could save her when we get shot down.
SPOILERS YOU DUMB CUNT KYS
Why are you in here and also it doesn't happen I just wish I could save her because she is cute
>Phoenix pulling off Ace Combat/Project Wingman tier shit while Bob screams.
Top Gun: N _ G _ _ R
>aviators who annoy you
>make sequel "passing the torch" movie that doesn't shit all over original character
And for some reason Hollywood keeps fucking up on that concept.
I'm surprised too!
cant bruise the cruise
3/10. Build up to the ending as well as the ending was real dumb. Lets compare it to the end of Star Wars A New Hope with the Death Star run
>rebels talk about how the Death Star attack will be a very dangerous mission, borderline suicide
>numerous pilots die in the attack
>rebels say that to destroy the Death Star you have to shoot a torpedo into an air shaft. All the pilots say this is impossible but Luke points out "we used to shoot wompa rats no bigger than that"
>Luke then shoots torpedo through the airshaft
This is good writing.
Now here's Top Gun Maverick:
>Navy admirals and Mav talk about how the attack on the nuclear site will be a very dangerous mission, borderline suicide
>but don't worry, literally not a single American pilot dies
>Navy admirals and Mav talk about how their F18s are no match for the 5th gen Russian fighers in a dog fight
>but don't worry, Mav defeats 2 of these 5th gen fighters with an even older F14 that he stole from a Russian garage (and which clearly wasn't maintained because the ejection hatch didn't work)
This is poor screenwriting.
It's not the plane, it's the pilot.
>It's not the plane, it's the pilot.
Nonsense. Even Mav said "we should have F35s against these 5th gens, but since we have to use F18s, we have to avoid dogfighting". The idea that an barely maintained F14 could beat 2 5th gens after Mavs statement is nonsense.
Yeah you didn't watch it, it's about the pilot
Ok retard. Just ignore what Mav said and accept this capeshit le superhero nonsense.
Barely maintained is bad for any plane.
But, an F14 in good shape is preferable to an F18. The swing wings are automatic and give the pilot incredible advantages in aerodynamics as the performance of the wing is optimized for current airspeed.
No it doesn't retard. There's a reason why they don't make swing wing jets anymore. You can get better aerodynamic capabilities with an unstable plane and fbw.
Vectored thrust > dynamic wing. But we are talkingF14 v F18 not F14 v SU57.
no one is talking about su57
SU57 are the Iranian planes in the movie...
I suggest you read up on why there are dynamic wing planes like the F14, F111, Tornado, B1, MiG23, MiG27, TU22, Tu160, SU24 and others were made.
The F18 was an F16-like concept for the Navy. It was supposed to be lighter, cheaper and smaller than the F14. In fact, it was the Air Force's F16 competitor and it lost. They Navy resurrected it (or was told to by Congress).
Also, the F18 is multirole. It replaced a number of types with one, improving readiness because there are less types to maintain. However, the F18 is a compromise to all of the specialized planes it replaced.
The Tomcat was shit. It had crappy engines and the swing wings gave away its current state to the opposition. It was all about the Phoenix missiles and nothing else. The real GOAT was the F-15.
What Mav is alluding to is vectored thrust which is common in 5th gen designs. It allows tighter turns and wired unnatural flight attitudes that traditional fixed thrust can’t match. But the F14 can come closer than most planes with the dynamic wing.
Networking and stealth are the other 2 5th gen attributes and the F14 does not have them.
SU-57s are not 5th gen and an F-14 deleting them from the sky is totally within the realm of possibility.
It was a mistake using such an obvious real-world design that is known to be compromised and only vaguely looks '5th gen' to fool countries into buying it.
They really should have used drones to really drive home the 'pilot not plane' message.
They should’ve had China as the villain, with Tomcats smoking J-20s, chinks would chimp out.
>They really should have used drones to really drive home the 'pilot not plane' message.
I like this
True. Similar to Corsairs dropping Mig15's in Korean or Mustangs dropping Me262's in WW2.
But that's not what happened. One of the 5th gens was basically sucker punched, and the second one was taken down by hangman.
Three planes went down
The sucker punch one
The one that got gunned down
Then Hangman's kill
>Then Hangman's kill
this shit was retarded
that bro was so focused on locking on maverick he didn't notice he's being targeted?
You never got so intent on killing this one little shit in ace combat that you took a missile up the ass that you weren't paying attention to? And this little shit took out 2 of your friends.
The only time there is a huge disparity in fighting between different "generation" (pop culture meme phrase) is at range. Once they're up close and it's a real dogfight the playing field is way more even.
Siskel and ebert over here
you are autistic
The F14 is a better plane in every way than the F18. Navy aviators like to say the F18 can go half as fast, have as far and carry half as much…
Wandering Cinemaphileommando here: The F14 was so fucking old it had transistors and circuit breakers in it. It was also a maintenance nightmare. The F-18 has readiness rates of 95%+ plus fly by wire controls and all the modern trimmings.
FBW vs EMP. Hydraulics are not so bad…
Here from Cinemaphile. That's retarded and wrong. The navy's always been full of liars though so it's no surprise to hear that.
I was flying wingman with Buzzard in an F18 when I took this beauty shot as we were inverted over a Bolivian F14. Go be a land lover on /b/.
US and aura are the only countries to fly F14s.
How can you miss the point this hard? The entire movie is about how real pilots are going to be replaced and Maverick's arguing how the pilot makes the plane
>its the same onions wars autist from every thread
Anon, you retarded gay
The movie literally opens with Cruise testing a brand new jet that can push Mach 10. The ENTIRE point of this opening segment and the point made is
>You bought your guys some time, but you can't halt the future. Soon we will have computers that can do everything a pilot can do and better.
The rest of the movie is about him unwilling to compromise on completely the mission with every person coming back. The Navy at the start is more than willing to allow the pilots to die in the name of the mission and they repeatedly berate Cruise for making the conditions of the test extra difficult for the sake of MAYBE bringing every pilot back in one piece. He is then successful in convincing everyone by demonstrating himself that it can be done in even tighter parameters than he had set for them.
The ENTIRE theme of the movie is
>It's not the plane, it's the pilot
This is repeatedly addressed and reinforced.
Giving the characters such increasingly difficult and impossible odds, only for them to prevail or find another solution through last minute improvisation and bold moves is VERY deliberate and on purpose. It's both great tension and it satisfies the audience to see these characters pull a win out of their ass with some tricky 1 in a million maneuvers. Watching them succeed is the movie succeeding in its mission.
>You think up there, you're dead.
A drone with a computer brain cannot act on instinct.
Everything you've mentioned is deliberately stacking the deck against the heroes so that it's more satisfying when they pay off.
You are either being facetious to troll or you're an autist who genuinely cannot understand viscera. Either way, you certainly don't know dick about good screenwriting. Thank FUCK people like you don't write movies. The cinemas would be even more souless than they are now.
>Thank FUCK people like you don't write movies. The cinemas would be even more souless than they are now.
Sory anon they've already infested all western cinema. This is why this movie is such a godamn rarity.
Everyone point at the midwit and laugh
ITS A MOVIE YOU FUCKING RETARD. Go watch Woke Wars with Darth Sheeboon
Yeah it was surprisingly kino. I was worried the w*man pilot might become a problem but she was just kind of there.
Who's the co-star that begged online to be in the film?
Val didn't have to beg. If anything, they had to beg HIM. Everyone wanted him back and he still had cancer.
Val Kilmer is still alive-enough to be on Twitter promoting this kino.
On March 3, 1969 the United States Navy established an elite school for the top one percent of its pilots. Its purpose was to teach the lost art of aerial combat and to insure that the handful of men and women who graduated were the best fighter pilots in the world.
Today, the Navy calls it Fighter Weapons School. The flyers call it TOPGUN: MAVERICK
Made me chuckle when I saw that.
>Welcome back to Top Gun Maverick
Walked out of the theater right there, and into the one down the hall where it was just starting again.
I love Phoenix!
*drops in ocean*
I loved the movie, I haven't enjoyed a movie in such a long time but this was pure kino. I have only two real complaints/questions though.
>Why didn't any of the pilots use FOX codewords a single time before firing a missile?
>Why couldn't they name the 5th generation fighter that's so much better than any other plane?
They didn't name the 5th gen fighter because it was obviously a Su 57, a Russian plane, but the enemy forces are intentionally left undefined (like the original film) to avoid stirring shit up with whoever they chose. I guess they still have hope for a release in Russia/China.
Joining Scientology now
It's great and feels fresh and alive
Tom Cruise is so good, bros. It makes me Scientology curious.
aerospace fag here.
I'm wiling to bet a maintained F14 could hang with any modern 5th gen in combat that close.
5th gens are mostly focused on stealth and sensor fusion, not lower speed performance.
that and SU-57s are gen 4.5 at best and are largely a huge failure.
and yes, that mission would be a cake walk for F35s. but the government fags put a hard foot down on using f35s in the filming because of potential security issues.
Well that and there’s no two seat variant of the F-35 so you wouldn’t be able to film actors in the aircraft.
>no two seat variant
true, I know the garden gnomes wanted a 2 seat version but never got it.
but notice how there's like 2 shots of F35s for like 1 second.
they kept the f35Bs out of the picture.
F35 is also ugly af
take that back
It's not a happy plane like the x32
the x32 was a funny Boeing failure.
they ignored the requirements and bitched about losing.
Just a few changes and it would have looked so much better
first thing i think of when i see that is a fish
Needs the flying tigers nose art.
Another Boeing fuck up. One of the reasons it was rejected was literally because it looked so odd
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the F/A-18 or the F-14 are capable of many of the maneuvers they're depicted as performing in the movie like the Pugachev Cobra.
f35s can do the Cobra maneuver as well.
but stuff like that is pointless in a stealth jet that will spend it's life tagging targets and sniping people from 500+ miles away
>f35s can do the Cobra maneuver as well.
I know they can thanks to their thrust vectoring, but I don't think that either of the planes Maverick is shown performing the maneuver with are actually capable of it.
f35's don't have thrust vectoring.
the VTOL or STOVL f35s don't use their 3d nozzles for acrobatics.
both the f18 or f14 with light load outs are capable of the Cobra
thrust vectoring is not a hard requirement of doing a cobra. just pulling up into a vertical position, pulling on the brakes and turning down the throttle as low as it will go should theoretically be enough. doing it this way will make your plane still end up higher in elevation than before it started the maneuver though which is shown in the movie. thrust vectoring lets you keep the same elevation.
Still, it was my understanding that performing it without thrust vectoring required certain aerodynamic parameters which those aircraft didn't have.
It could be they're capable, I'd just never seen or heard of them performing it.
They actually sort of are. Not quite full cobras but they can pull some pretty hard AoA. F-18 can just naturally do it, it’s good at pulling it’s nose around at the expense of losing speed. F-14 with wings fully opened (which never happens normally but Maverick uses the override to open them manually) can also dramatically slow down that way. Nerds have tested it in simulators and F-14 pilots have done it in exercises to dab on F-15s.
was that cobra maneuver in the movie real, or CG? because if it was real, holy. that's some incredible camera work.
DCS fag here
I hate that zoommobile. also dislike the hornet, slow and doesn't give me a hardon like the cat
If you go that route you could just ask why they didn't just slam those 50 tomahawk missiles to the plant.
An A-10 would be the more interesting plane in close range dogfights.
Idgaf about jets or Top Gun, but Cruise delivers hq kino (except Knight&Day) so I'll pirate it in a few months
was it actually good? i assumed it would be retarded, only movie my mom wants to see
yes its great
go watch it and enjoy some time with your mom anon
🙂 thanks fren
Tom Cruise produced movies fuckin slap. Man is a movie star and he knows what people want to see. He doesnt half ass shit.
Was anyone bored by this movie? I thought the movie was pretty good for blockbuster standards, but the friend I watched it with said it was boring. The only parts with bad pacing were the sappy football montage and the """"comedy"""" relief scene after Mav and Penny fucked.
I don't tend to like movies like this, but the action and adventure scenes more than made up for it. It basically has a the plot of a boring sports movie about a washed up coach teaching a bunch of brats how to play the game, but here there's real danger for the characters.
No, I thought the pacing was fine. Though I'm not an ADHD zoomed spaz that requires a dopamine hit every single scene.
Just came back from it. After a decade or horrid, spiteful sequels to films, tv shows and video games, finally we get something that not only respects the original fans but manages to avoid pandering to them too. I thought it would be great, but I didn’t expect it would be as good as it was. People calling it jingoistic are fucked in the head, the enemy is unnamed and the word “America” isn’t even mentioned. Go see it, anons. It’ll leave you smiling.
tom cruise puts in the work
and you get the results of his dedication onscreen
the film was spectacular
hollywood will lose one of its biggest, if not THE biggest star of our generation when he passes
I'm pumped for next mission impossible I enjoyed fallout greatly
i have no doubt cruise is strong and healthy to finish off the franchise in part 2
Shot on film?
It's digital. Aint no way in hell can fit not just an imax camera but also imax film stock into a cockpit.
Then it will factually not age like fine wine.
Still in imax so it should be fine.
Not if it's digital
When was the last fucking time a major movie was shot on film? let alone any movie? You're honestly being unreasonable for expecting this in 2022.
Maybe Hateful Eight?
It's the same movie as the original top gun. Dilate, consoom and touch grass
I was researching Scientology the other day and I was reading a paper by a cult researcher and its way more extreme than most people realize higher level members like Cruise and Miscavige have servants in the Sea Org who work 100 hours a week for room and board and make like 70 bucks a week. If they are ever seriously investigated they would easily be found in breach of human rights abuses and child labor laws, if they weren’t so well connected Cruise himself would likely found guilty of numerous felonies. A bunch of high level church documents including stuff on the OT levels are on WikiLeaks. The researcher I was reading suggested dianetics ultimately creates and is aligned with a psychopathic personality (L Ron Hubbard would unquestionably quality as one and so would Miscavige and probably Cruise as well) as their corrective brainwashing and mental exercises largely involved instilling unquestioning obedience (look for videos of how Tom Cruise behaves towards Miscavige and realize the A-list actor that makes billion dollar movies still follows the internal hierarchy as subservient to the leader)
>>star somehow looks more attractive than he did 36 years ago
I think Tom looks great for his age but let's not be delusional now.
Tom Cruise is an absolutely insane weirdo but I still love him. He’s like Michael Jackson
They had the Mexican chick forced in their kind of but it was still a high test male movie. Libs are absolutely seething.
>THIS IS WHAT THEY TOOK FROM YOU
looks like soulless garbage
Le stealthy alligator boi is only a slight upgrade to le stealthy penguin boi tbh.
You do realize that 80% of the Ariel footage is CGI, right? Aside from some reaction shots in canopy with the actors, it's 80% cartoon.
Fa/tv/irgins do not realize the extent to which CGI is subtly placed throughout modern movies.
They sneer and CGI flying goats, which are obvious, but remain oblivious to the enormous extent of it's use throughout movies in general.
there is only CGI from the clipping/splicing together physics impossible feats for the planes, but majority of the film, tom is flying and the other actors were taught to perform and fly
I watched a few videos like 2 years ago with C.W. Lemoine when the trailer came out. He's a legit fighter pilot and pointed to all the CGI stuff. Can't wait to see his new videos now that the film is finally out. There are a few videos also with effects guys showing how they matted some of this for the new film. Reaction shots are real. But the Ariel combat in the film violates American laws and the Navy would not allow them to even try it.
does the Navy know that you're trying to bomb the Little Mermaid?
C.W. Lemoine is pretty cool.
where is the Little Mermaid?
If Maverick attempted to enter Europes airspace he would get his shit wrecked
PROVE ME WRONG
>thank you for saving my life
>it's what my dad would have done
fuck you i cried
too many token fags, trannies and blacks in the new top gun movie. The action scenes were good though. 2.5/10
This movie is a masterclass on handling legacy characters, it's like night and day compared to Disney wars.
Why did they destroy a peaceful nuclear power program?
For our amusement. Based USN once again bombing the shit out of lesser-country civvies in order to entertain the masses.
I unironically support any bombing campaign so long as it generates kino footage.
because israel asked them to they say as much in the movie
the garden gnome don't like it when sandbrothers get ahead
I checked reddit and they hate him and the movie, it's quite amazing.
They're seething because the article implies capeshit isn't for grown ups kek
They're mad it's not a marvel moview
why is the F35 considered good, I dont know shit about planes
its really expensive and it looks cool
Most fights involving aircraft take place over many many miles these days, outside of visual range. That means radar and target acquisition is incredibly important, so the stealth technology that the F35 uses to hide from target acquisition systems is incredibly important. Additionally, the plane comes in a cheaper package than an F22 and is more versatile, since the F22 is a designated air superiority fighter. A 35 can do air superiority, but it also has ground strike capabilities which makes it more useful for a wide variety of missions.
Basically, cheaper and more versatile stealth alternative to the very specialized F22. Think F16 vs F15 but with stealth.
Modern avionics and sensor fusion
Stealth (lower cross section so harder to detect on radar)
Basically the wal-mart version of the F-22
>Basically the wal-mart version of the F-22
the f35 performs well against the f22 in practice situations. still loses, but what do you expect, it's an all purpose fighter. still beats the shit out of every non-nato countries aircraft arsenal.
4chan said the black pilot has a white boi fiancee, not gonna give the garden gnomes my money, sorry not sorry
Well that's just not true.
4chan said air was created by garden gnomes
So I'm gonna stop breathing and suffocate. Not giving my breath to Satan
tfw we didn't get to see the beautiful piece of art that is the F22
>why did this movie about the navy not show an air force jet?
>we wanted to film our actors as much as possible in the backseat of a single seat jet
they could've just had the QRF jets be 35s or 22s if the reason they didn't launch the 18s were because they were outclassed. would've been cool to see the 35 vertically launch or something atleast
F-22's are not carrier capable, and there's no point in using the vertical takeoff variant (with less range and armament) if you have catapults
hey you autistic retard. I'm talking about whats cool to see. its a movie doesn't have to be 100% realistic or what is the best for the mission. You're the retard that would say "why not just have B2 bomb it from high up"
If there's one many that could have convinced the military to let him solo pilot an F-22 for his movie, it would be Tom Cruise
piece of shit that falls apart.
> navy movie
It’s a USAF plane.
> but the P51
Yea, I know, but it is the star’s personal plane. He needs a tax write off…
F-22 is Air Force and bullshit classified even now, similar to the F-35 but moreso. When USAF runs Red Flag their pilots unironically are flying with the equivalent of training wheels on, because they are under orders not to reveal the limits of the F-22’s ability.
>le passing of the torch of a male role model to a fucking woman
Fuck off shill
That doesn't happen, you fucking fat cunt.
So I just watched Top Gun 1 and it was ok, can't believe why it made Gen X poop their pants so much though
Watch the crappier war and fighter movies of the 60s and 70s.
Because it did good jet footage first and had a good story for idiots and women and two hit songs.
not saying the movie sucked but..lets be honest the only good thing about it was the planes. holy fuck I could sleep through everything else. EVERYTHING.
Any scenes with Iceman, Rooster and Hangman were kino. It's the romance subplot that feels out of place.
but every line was cliche shit. even that ending felt odd where everyone aorund is staring and cheering and they're speaking to eachother in a normal tone. I felt like I was watching a remaster.
>inb4 muh callback
corny. And I don't use that lightly.
They finished an impossible mission and got back without losing a single person. You don't think that's something worth celebrating?
It's not the fact that they're cheering. Watch the scene again on a stream site, it's like they got put into a quiet bubble while speaking to eachother while everyone around them is staring at them and jumping around. It was jsut odd. also that football beach scene and the typical banter. like I said, only the plane shit was great. I think it's a movie made for 80s boomers and young people like to pretend they like it
>young people like to pretend they like it
Young people pride themselves on hating what boomers like. If someone says they like it, they probably do. Especially when a movie is devoid of cynicism and irony like this one.
Not sure where you got your intel, zoomers today larp 80s crap like they remember it.
They larp what they see on Stranger Things. None of them actually know anything that's being referenced in it. Look up TikToks of teenagers saying BTS have more cultural relevance than The Clash or the The Cure. It isn't a zoomer exclusive thing, though. All kids rebel against their parents and what they like. Top Gun was hated by the parents of kids who wanted to see it in the 80s as well.
>Top Gun was hated by the parents of kids who wanted to see it in the 80s as well.
based parents having good taste. Go to an airshow unironically. It is not a good film when the planes aren't on the screen.
This. Even then, it isn't enough to detract from how cool everything else is.
Romance subplot made me think Penny is actually explaining the “high speed pass over an admiral’s daughter” from the first Top Gun - Goose said it was “Penny Benjamin”.
I get that they wanted the Romance to have Cruise do something more I guess. But yeah, that scene with Ice was the best scene of the movie. Arguably better than plane scenes.
Just got back from seeing it. Absolutely fantastic movie, can’t bruise Cruise. Would happily see it again, felt like the people making it actually cared about making a good fucking movie.
So did Maverick finally retire at the end? Or is he still technically in but finally promoted and driving a desk?
He'll be in Top Gun 3 flying scramjets for the Space Force.
The film shits all over top brass for not giving a fuck about their pilots lmao
That's barely a political take. The movie is great, but purposely avoids naming anything to not choose a side. Hell, the fucking baddies look like fucking black stormtroopers
We all know what that red eagle logo on their fighters was.
Why whenever I see F35 footage it's always LTC or similar ranks flying them? Wouldn't Maverick be a higher rank if he was a test pilot
He's Navy. Captain is O6, he'd normally be in charge of a major assignment like a cruiser with that rank. I'm 60% certain it's just below admiral.
Oh strange captain for army is only o3
Yeah, I think the army and navy switch captain and lieutenant around. Navy it's lieutenant to captain, army it's captain to lieutenant. Might be wrong on that though.
Navy Captain means you’re captaining a ship or equivalent (like running a carrier air wing as CAG).
nah, another annoying part of the movie.
>the 90lb latina even entering a plane
Is there any use of Kenny Loggins in the film?
Danger Zone during the opening.
alright good enough for me
All good, my bro. Enjoy the film.
thanks mate, going to go watch it with my brother
I asked because Kenny Loggins was hugely important to my family history, Danger Zone being no exception. I also love the original Top Gun to death
>I also love the original Top Gun to death
Then I hope you love it. I enjoyed the original when I was a kid, but having seen it gives you all the preparation you need for this movie to really hit you. Have a good time
thanks anon, have a kick ass day/night
>sequel is actuky better than the original
It was like witnessing a miracle.
Mighty Wings >>> Danger Zone
>this movie had no right being this good
Why do people talk like this? Makes you sound like a shill.
It's been so long since there was a good, straightforward action blockbuster. It's not people's fault for reacting the way they do.
>It's been so long since there was a good, straightforward action blockbuster
It really hasn't. Mission Impossible movies come out every other year or so. Same with the Fast Furious movies and all that other crap.
They did Star Wars better than Star Wars.
SWINO can't compete.
Hey good to hear it, Anonymous! Say, have you thought about signing up to fight for your country?
You'll get to be JUST LIKE TOM!
I thought it was a Navy movie
Shut the fuck up and enlist.
The air force has better planes and doesn’t force you to live on a boat and have sex with men between flights.
Mandatory gay sex hasn't been enforced since '92. So please, JOIN THE NAVY
What about marine aviators? What do they do?
Unironically based. About time we started gearing up for a Cold War with China.
>gearing up for a Cold War with China
We're already in that. Now is the time for hot war.
How good is f-35 stealth?
Forgot to type. F35 is estimated at .005m^2.
I heard the SR71 shows up the same as a fruit fly
Wouldn't surprise me. It's probably the best designed plane of all time in terms of minimizing RCS, you can tell just looking at it.
The saying "they don't make them like they used to" is fucking retarded but when it comes to US military projects it's true. We need another fire under our asses to get our programs out of development hell.
You mean SR72? The SR71 showed up perfectly fine, it was catching it while it cruised at Mach 3.5 80k feet that was the hard part.
So I still get a toy if say no?
>all alone in front of the food court counter
>little toy airplanes
where is this kek
probably in the middle of nowhere where dreams go to die.
This is peak america.
The best thing about the movie is how simple the plot is but because the action is so well captured that it feels like a daunting mission. It's literally Cruise training a team of top pilots to do the trench run from A New Hope, and it works.
>Thought Hangman was an asshole who was constantly getting his team into trouble with his antics.
>Comes to save the day anyways, love him by the end.
>Realize Hangman is exactly like Maverick from the first movie, before he learned a bit more humility, and Rooster is Iceman in this role.
>Hangman saves Mav and Rooster
>doesn't say "What, you thought I'd leave you hanging?"
Missed opportunity, imo
Anon, that's too on the nose. They already did a similar joke earlier when explaining his callsign.
>Wanna know why they call him hangman? Because he'll always leave you hanging out to dry.
Still has the coolest helmet in the movie.
Do you happen to have a picture of Bob's helmet? I didn't get a good look at it in the film.
Just google Top Gun Bob. Literally the first few results
Too cheesy even for this movie, I suppose. The irony of someone called Hangman saving the day is good enough, they don't need to ham it up.
>totally apolitical yet timeless message
How's a'goin', Rabbi?
how is that a bad thing? I don't want politics preached to me when I'm watching a movie.
I'm saying it's not, retard. Attacking a nation because they do what you do while not being a part of NATO is pure globohomo.
>Attacking a nation because they do what you do while not being a part of NATO is pure globohomo.
The movie makes it clear they are bad guys up to no good. Bad guys DO exist in the world, you know. You're applying the gray sort of morality that the leftist you hate love so much.
Okay, sure, but the United States government is one of those bad guys.
We're the good guys and anyone who says otherwise is a seething third-worlder. This is not a joke.
Making the world a better place doesn’t mean better for everyone. Woe to the vanquished.
If we're the bad guys, then who are the good guys? Russia? Pfffhahahahaha
Iran is a shithole cope ESL
talk to me dubs
It's a lot funnier if you imagine him talking like a Brit saying
>Talk to me goose
Any good torrents yet?
I watched it today. It was amazing
Yes it did
Its making me feel old...but this is what movies used to be like. They wanted to tell a story so got some actors, a story, some sets, planes etc...and filmed it. This is what is missing from so many movies today. Its not a CGI monstrosity, and lots of young people havent every really gotten to experience a real move like this in a theater
>it's the pilot, not the plane
Imagine the pounding Phoenix got below decks after she got back to the carrier
