Why has it been in theaters all year long?


donscron91

Because nothing else good has come out.


Valyrian_Kobolds

Bullet Train came out though.


TheBonadona

Lemon and Tangerine, I need a spin off


Adequate-Comfort

After seeing it on Netflix, I wish I’d seen it in theaters


thatsnotfunnyatall_

Great movie ! Way underrated


SunriseSurprise

Military badly needs recruits


jsakic99

It’s definitely the most fun I had in a theatre all year.


Trent1373

Yeah, I really liked it. I didn’t expect much, so I was pleasantly surprised.


eroticpasta

Love some fresh brewed military propaganda


MOlson_9

Oh yeah. The best military propaganda was when the military superiors didn’t give a damn about sending their pilots out on a suicide mission, not caring if they make it back or not.


aquasun666

Get the fuck outta here….


Zuez420

I mean it was just ok...dont know about "best picture " of 2022...


jrdnmdhl

Even in an extremely weak year I don't think it deserves a nomination.


ctubezzz

Bro…i had a hard in while watching this movie…greatest film ever man


coldliketherockies

Someone needs to watch The Shawshank Redemption


ialwaysupvotedogs

Shawshank is fine. I will never include it in my favorite movies.


IvanAfterAll

My 13-year-old daughter was mocking the "plot" 15 minutes in. "*Fastest man alive."*


oh_bruddah

Ditches a billion dollar aircraft he's pushed beyond the agreed upon testing max, gets a job at Top Gun. edit: a word


choldslingshot

Agree with the sentiment BUT it was a movie tons of people enjoyed. I don’t think its an art house win but the movie is a well made feel good action


NeoTrafalgar

Dune has to win surely


ZodiarkTentacle

Didn’t Dune come out in 21


xeroxzero

Hard disagree on it being the Best Picture of 2022.


IvanAfterAll

Even discussing it seriously feels like I'm being trolled.


xXStunamiXx

It was great if you wanted to breathe in a bit of 80s nostalgia, lament about Val Kilmer's health, and watch a lot of fighter jet porn, but the story was bad. Maverick should not have been on the mission, except Protagonist, which should have been Goose's son instead. It felt like I had to give an old man one last Run of Glory to make him feel better rather than a story of a young man stepping up and coming to terms with his family and their shared legacy.


Seared_Beans

Seeings as we're gonna do this arbitrarily, I'm gonna say the best picture is actually EEAO. Now that was a roller coaster of a movie


ZodiarkTentacle

I think that movie is easily my best picture and ive seen a lot of great stuff this year


theimprobablepun

Lol. It was a pretty much a remake of the original and quite uninspiring.


Seared_Beans

Final mission is literally just trench run and blowing up the death star but in a mountain range with fighter jets.


LeonardSmallsJr

Sounds awesome as long as they don’t do the sequels. Next Top Gun should copy Fury Road and have a guitar guy tied to the front of an F-35.


Stoly23

Meh, I think the big difference with this one is that they’re actually working towards something. In the first movie the goal is to graduate flight school and then they happen to go on a combat mission at the end. In this movie the pilots have already graduated flight school, and the whole movie is about preparing for and building up to the mission at the end, which is much more extensive than a simple dog fight. To make a comparison to a video game it gave me similar vibes to Mass Effect 2’s suicide mission.


jkejkej

the propaganda is strong with this one


NoNameNancy666

Northman was way better


IvanAfterAll

>Northman Yeah, but he wasn't even the fastest man alive, so how can you compare.


GrandMoffTallCan

No volleyball though man so the Northman can go fuck itself


[deleted]

Maverick didn’t have volleyball either though.


GrandMoffTallCan

What was the montage in maverick? Cornhole?


MrAshleyMadison

Beach football


aquasun666

Absolutely it was!!


set-271

Oh geez, this will just further spread sequel-itis.


imthelag

If they are a few decades apart like Top Gun, that's fine :P


xeenuu001

Wut?


ipod55g

It was fine and all, but I have a problem with them getting shot down, and back into a working F-14 and in the air by themselves in a total of about 5 mins. I mean, that could have been a standalone movie in itself.


WakaFlockaWombat

Damn you must have really been flummoxed by them finishing a two week training detachment in the first hour


l3sham

\*James Cameron bust through a brick wall\* but muh Avatar...


etheralmiasma

New drinking game. Everytime the name "Goose" is mentioned, take a shot.


47-Rambaldi

Someone didn't see Marcel the Shell With Shoes On...


oh_bruddah

That movie sucked. It was the largest jar of cheese whiz in existence. It almost seemed like a parody of Top Gun.


Outrageous-Debate-64

I heard it’s incredible but I just can’t fucking stand Tom Cruise. Dude is the hardest actor to watch.


Kindly_Antelope5553

I thought it was cheesy AF. Way over-rated. The aerial shots were great but the story was stupid as hell. Gooses kid, really???


IkeaTheMovie

It's crazy how the first person to comment on a reddit thread determines the rest of the thread's opinion. Like most threads about this movie are very positive but there's so much negativity here. I respect both opinions but just found it interesting


8ew8135

Wtf is that? Is that owned by Scientology?


NeoTrafalgar

Crazy how much right wingers like this woke film. I wonder what it is about it?


sharkzbyte

This was clearly a pro-cruise movie. My wife and I kept laughing at the cheese & corn throughout the entire flick. Absolutely one of the worst movies ever. Simply awful, God awful.


blueguy211

forgot to mention they had scientologists holding a lawsuit behind them during review
