Eh, it's a perfectly fine popcorn action movie. I do not get the extreme love or need to rewatch, but that's just me.

Way, way, way late to this game, but finally got to watch this last night with my wife. We enjoyed the hell out of it. Hit the right notes of nostalgia while also being something completely new and different. The ariel stuff was freaking amazing. Loved it. Glad I bought it, so we can show our kids. They hated the original.

I think the original pales in comparison to this. Might be outlandish to say, but I’m sticking to it. This will be my most watched movie past five years.

Agreed. Also, it was a little too convenient that Maverick and Goose's kid didn't get captured after landing in enemy territory; then they discovered a perfectly good American plane that Maverick could fly in a hangar they managed to get to without being shot at; and then they managed to take off in said plane even though the runway had just been blown up to prevent the enemy from using it.

Maverick took out the only helicopter that was in the area, the Tomcat being there was foreshadowed during the briefing earlier in the movie, they weren't seen because they were two people dressed as pilots running across a smoking airfield with a lot of other people running around during a battle and one of the issues they had to deal with was getting their plane up fast enough on a blown-up runway (and tore the nose-wheel off in the process).

You can suspend disbelief or not, but everything seemed to be thought out here.

Damn, this movie was incredible- can't believe they did all that just for a movie. Got goosebumps....that hasn't happened since I was a kid lol.

Although the characters weren't fleshed out at all, I still cared for all of them and didn't want to see them die.

Really fun flick.

Back in theaters for 2 weeks starting Friday. If you missed out on seeing it in a premium format, here's your chance.

Hah, Paramount gunning for that 1.5 Billion! I saw it three times in IMAX, I'm probably good. Still, if I have an open weeknight....

I'll likely go to check it out again, hoping it will remind me of the warm, sunny summer when I originally saw it. Big bonus if we have snow that day.
