Was lucky enough to check it out tonight - was absolutely a ton of fun. Hope you all dig it as much as I did.Just saw this in IMAX. Absolutely AWESOME! So much fun, really. Filming blew away expectations by far. I cant even begin to explain the scope of the amazing shots they were able to capture. Worth seeing just for that alone. In IMAX you can feel the roar of the jets in your chest. I love the original and was jumping out of my seat with excitement waiting for this to start. Watching it made me feel like a kid again. I'm probably not being entirely objective but in this moment I really don't care. Looking forward to seeing it again Friday. Enjoy!
You mean it was just like the Original?!Just got back from seeing it. Liked it overall, but there were lots of corny and cheesy parts that had me rolling my eyes. The younger cast was not believable in their roles at all. Enjoyed all the callbacks to the original and the climax was great in IMAX.

Ron... it really is that good. I saw it a second time today and I enjoyed it just as much if not more since I could focus more on the little things I missed the first time. I saw the original in the theater and still remember like it was yesterday. I could not be happier with what they did with this movie.Damn it you guys. I swore I wasn't going to see this movie.
Everyone has that one movie (besides Star Wars) that they grew up with, watched a gagillion times, always quote, obsessed over, and know in their heart of hearts that no sequel could ever possibly live up to. For me, that movie is Top Gun. How dare they make a sequel?! Probably going to be a crappy cgi fest!!! I even avoided the trailer because there's no way it could entice me. That's why I haven't even commented in this thread. There's no following perfection. That's right, I said perfection!
Now hearing all the praise I'm wondering if there might be a chance. Dare I dream that a modern sequel to a classic movie could actually be good??? I'm eventually going to curiosity watch it when it's available on TV or streaming but catching it in IMAX sounds like the way to watch if it really is this good.
I have seen multiple times now about the character Penny. I am trying to figure out how the people who say they are fans of the original don't know who she is. While we never saw her she was referenced twice in the original.
