Top Gun

From the Producers of Beverly Hills Cop and Flashdance [UK Theatrical]

So why the hell are we showing Top Gun? Everyone has already seen it numerous times on Tv...... thats exactly the point, everyone has seen it on the TV, not many people I know are old enough to have seen it in the cinema when it came out, (I was 4 at the time!!). This is one film that must be seen at some point on the big screen. The picture will look great, and the plane scenes will be brilliant. As for the soundtrack.......... AHHHHH!!!!

So the plot: there are some men that fly planes, they are pretty good at it. There is some sex and an ice cube, somebody sings a song, and somebody else dies. It ends shooting some bad guys out of the sky (all of which have blacked out helmets to make them "evil"). That sucks as a review of the plot so I copied this from IMBD:

"Maverick is a hot pilot. When he encounters a pair of MiGs over the Persian Gulf, his wingman is clearly outflown and freaks. On almost no fuel, Maverick is able to talk him back down to the Carrier. When his wingman turns in his wings, Maverick is moved up in the standings and sent to the Top Gun Naval Flying School. There he fights the attitudes of the other pilots and an old story of his father's death in combat that killed others due to his father's error. Maverick struggles to be the best pilot, stepping on the toes of his other students and in a different way to Charlie, a civilian instructor to whom he is strongly attracted."

This film rocks, and on the big screen will really rock.
