Hey, so, if you actually have spoilers to post, please use the spoiler tag, because it's not like I was able to not see what you wrote simply because you said it was a spoiler.

Thanks.

Top Gun, like most revered 80s action films, sucks. I'm assuming he made the comparison based on the whole aerial dog fight thing, but Top Gun used a lot of boring stock footage to the point where it often didn't even match up with the expected action.

Anyway, it was a dumb script with pedestrian directing. Just like 48 Hours, Beverly Hills Cop, Lethal Weapon, etc. Really have no idea why anybody liked that crap then or would even care for it now. Practically nothing from mainstream Hollywood in the 1980s holds up today other than the blockbusters that broke ground such as Ghostbusters or well scripted stuff like the films of James Brooks. Likewise, it's all garbage today as well with the six major studios basically creating (or buying) one great film a year in order to hope it turns into hundreds of millions of box office receipts thanks to Oscar nominations.

All jokes aside, Top Gun fucking rules. It's an awesome movie, and the action scenes are good entertainment.

Watching Episode 5 tonight. Hearing this is widely considered the best of them all, so pumped.

The first Lethal Weapon was a good movie, like most films it should never have had one let alone several sequels coughJawscough.

Same for 48 Hours, just watched it on cable not too long ago, I think it still holds up. (Again never should have done a sequel)

But I agree on Top Gun. On the big screen, it was visually impressive, but really not great cinema or well acted outside of Anthony Edwards.

All of this. The 80s are nostalgia-overrated trash for the most part, at least with Hollywood films.

I mean, we shouldn't be setting his expectations too high. Just as many people including myself think A New Hope is the best one.

I just wonder what COBL's opinion will be of the other films which are all clearly on a much lower bar. Or just goddamn terrible as is the case of Episode I.

Okay, after being a bit underwhelmed by A New Hope, I fucking loved Empire Strikes Back. From start to finish, tremendous. So much better than episode 4. So much energy, no flat scenes, suspense through the roof, better action, better script, AND, it leaves you hanging!!! How many movies leave you waiting on such a big cliffhanger..... and not only that, but it was three years til the next movie.

Donald Glover is going to be such a good Lando Calrissian.

You're such an unrelenting attention whore.

"I'm an older guy who hasn't seen Star Wars! And I like it now!"

Fuck the fuck off. Seriously.
