Got tickets to Top Gun tomorrow. The reviews seem to be

Very positive and I just heard the box office returns so far on NPR. It's a mega hit.
I can't do spoilers since I haven't seen it but my guess is Tom Cruise wins.

7. Screw him unless he denounces them, which he hasn't

He has helped ruin the lives of innumerable people with that dangerous crap.

2. Me too. First movie in theater in 3 years. I'll be masked and going to a matinee.

That doesn't mean it won't be crowded, though, but maybe not as bad as later shows.

3. The spoiler-free summary I got from someone who saw it was...

It's basically the same movie. But the airplane/flight scenes look better.

5. Going to see it next weekend

Very much looking forward to it. I was a young teen when the original came out. It was amazing at the time, so I'm trying not to set expectations too high!

9. Never saw the first one. Annoyed me no end to have to sit through previews

for #2.

I was probably the only person remotely connected with VF-51 at the time who did not see it.

12. It would be great....

if they nominate Val Kilmer for an Oscar....he earned it in Tombstone and has had an amazing achievement list of roles/ films.

Just a thought.

13. NO SPOILERS - Went to a 5:30 PM show with DH today - senior tickets were $5.20 each

(Cinemark discount Tuesday) and we were probably 2 out of a dozen folks for this matinee showing. I enjoyed the first Top Gun and this one, Top Gun-Maverick sequel, was more exciting but a lot less romantic. The nostalgia was well done as well, and I didn't feel it was smaltzy either. Great action re-do; thumbs up! NO SPOILERS
