|paragon||anyone that would place any meaning to the command patches in a movie such as top gun or more especially trailers for such movies are the ultimate douchecanoe|

Jacket in question, seems reasonable this time:
The Asians all hate each other, this is exactly the kind of games the Chicoms play. So fragile and thin-skinned.

Tencent Pictures is financing the movie. You've all seen the Drudge link.
This movie is for the Chinese market, not the American market. Even if it's not shown in theaters in China, it has to comply with Communist Party guidelines, hence the no Japan/Taiwan flag on Cruise's cruise jacket.
Tinfoil hat would say that the film was being made to do poorly in the US market, so that it would show evidence of the greater importance of the Chinese market, which is larger now. That's how the Chicoms play.
"Look, the American market is irrelevant now, we have to make storylines for China".
If you spend money on this film, you need to be investigated by Senator McCarthy.

The big push now in Hollywood is "women empowerment", where the dude is weak and the woman is the real hero. The new Star Wars, Mad Max, etc...all the new movies do that... so my guess is that's where this one goes.
I am surprised how many of you guys say you love the original movie. You must also love "playing with the boys" because you "lost that lovin feeling" (for women). Next thing you know...some fly-boy is going to put you into a tail-spin, get on your six, and take your highway into the Danger Zone..... You guys can buzz towers all you want... I am not into that.

Stolen from book of faces
So, a lot of folks have been wondering how Maverick could stick around so long as a 30+ year Navy Captain without forced retirement. Simple really, what had happened was...
Maverick got out of the Navy as an aviator somewhere around 1986. He didnít do much in his civilian life...played some pool, drove cross country with his gambler brother, and worked at a cocktail bar on an island resort.
Unsatisfied with the way things were going, he then went to law school and changed his name to Daniel Caffey and using various other aliases (long story why but apparently he was involved in some risky business before being a Top Gun). After law school he joined the Navy JAG Corps and worked a high profile case against a Marine Colonel. No longer able to handle the truth as he saw it, he ended up getting out again and working for some shady lawyers in a Ēfirm,Ē drove race cars, went to Ireland, worked on some impossible missions, and was apparently a sports agent (although there are no confirmed records of this except for some unattributed mission statement).
Although he could not stick with a particular job or profession since it seemed he always had his eyes wide shut to the possibilities, wasnít smelling the magnolias, and while looking to the stars...saw nothing but vanilla sky.
Word is that his friend, Jack Reacher, helped him break his funk at a 4th of July party when some tropic thunder occurred. A minority of the guests reported that after the thunder that Maverick talked about a war of the worlds, that we were on the edge of tomorrow, and headed to oblivion unless we did something to stop the rock of ages.
So, feeling a greater calling, he gave his friends Jo and Sam a call (now JAG and DJAG of the Navy JAG Corps) about helping him with an age waiver back into the Naval flight community. They obliged and he was soon back flying mach whatever with his hair on fire. So a lot of people wonder how he could have done all this but itís simple jack, he made all the right moves...

some trailers have stuff that doesnt make the final cut,.. while on the other side of the spectrum, some trailers include all the best scenes..
I saw many examples of that answer to both points of view.. in class..

well I learned they make trailers before the movie is finished.. just to tease us.. and many times what is in the trailer doesnt show up in the movie..
so Im kind of being suspect, about the movie, and will probably wait for it to be on dvd or something
oh and its a shame, how Kelly isnt hot anymore.
and I love me some Jennifer

|xj42||I just wish someone would have told me about the movie Witness when I originally watched Top Gun as a kid. I just wanted to see Kelly's bewbers, yeah I know she scissors now, and the original Top Gun didn't deliver but Witness comes through.|

am I the only one that thinks this looks like a parody movie?
there were a lot of scenes that were remakes from the original movie
and he was in a pressure suit when talking to Ed Harris
did he flip off the mountain as he flew over inverted?
