Another thing to factor in is this was the first movie most of us have have seen in a theater in 3+ years. This was the perfect type of movie to get us back in the theaters while also distracting us from all of the chaos in our daily lives. It was much needed which is why it’s breaking all sorts of records.
    Agreed the flight scenes are what made the movie for me…I did think the scene between Kilmer and Cruise was touching, it comes early so I wanted a bit more substance throughout. Overall I enjoyed it.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    I agree with all of this. I also think it's refreshing for a lot of people to get a popcorn movie like this that isn't the millionith superhero movie. Yes, it's a sequel, but it's not Top Gun 7 where the same people are doing the same thing that we've seen before. It's not the 20th Batman movie.

    That's what I am saying - 20-25 years ago this movie wouldn't have been anything special. It would have just been another movie. I hate to be that guy, but they just dont make em like they used to anymore.
    What would you say.....ya do here?

    Went to see the Elvis bio pic, it’s been a long time since I wanted to leave a movie early and the last one I did was Nixon, this one I wanted to leave early. I do not recommend it at all.
    When I see the 2016 Reds, I see a 100 loss team and no direction.

    I thought Top Gun was fun, but the plot was essentially Star Wars.
