I admit it, the original Top Gun has always been a guilty pleasure of mine.
The beach volleyball scene? Come on…. it’s a veritable beefcake cinematic masterpiece.
So when the sequel was released? I was on it like white on rice.
Yes, Tom Cruise is an ass in real life… but as cocksure Pete Mitchell he rocks.
The action sequences were stunning, the emotional scenes with a very ill and physically changed Val Kilmer? Tender and emotionally fraught.
But it’s the Lady Gaga theme song that’s been sticking in my head.
Love her or hate her, ya gotta admit it she brings it.
( And if you hate her? Please unfriend me, I can’t take that kind of negativity. 😉)
