This should be fun. I was a freshman in college when the original hit the theaters. Now, I'll be bringing my kids to this one...

    Me dino loved Top Gun as well as its comic parody, Hot Shots!, that way further exaggerated an aircraft carrier's deck crew's exuberant gung-ho antics and Arabic looking enemy fighter pilots speaking some Star Warish space alien language.
    What a hoot!

        Most people will read "kcock off" as "knock off" because the most important part of reading a word is that the first and last letters of a word be right. The rest of the letters can be out of order but not too scrambled or the mind will have to pause and translate to a known word. The brain does not have time while reading a passage to do little more than accept the miss spelled word as one the is common to it.
        For example:
        "Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteers be at the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe."

          Alleged research at Cambridge never happened, however. In fact Cambridge psycholinguists have not only disputed the claim they’ve pointed out why it is wrong and demonstrates the assertion about letter ordering is false. Consider this:

          A dootcr has aimttded the magltheuansr of a tageene ceacnr pintaet who deid aetfr a hatospil durg blendur.

          That sentence follows the “rule” to the letter. But it didn’t flow, did it? The main reason is that the meme you reference was designed to fool you by preserving phonetics and providing context with enough correct words that you don’t actually read the words but assume them, and your brain tells you you read them. This is a big part of why vocabulary and syntax matters: it lets you not read words and still gain the understanding of the text. This is a big part of how speed readers do our thing: not reading the bits you don’t need to. And yes, at speed a misspelled word can cut your rate down by half or more.

            The only word that keeps that sentence from being easily read is 'manslaughter' which does not fit with 'hospital blunder', at least to my semi-dyslexic mind. I have to read slow enough to make memories of what I read. It becomes much more difficult as I approach 80.
            I Took a speed reading course in college and got to 800 words per minute with better comprehension but it took most of the pleasure out of reading. Besides, it was useless for my fields of interest- chemistry, physics, and mathematics. I now just read prose slowly to create mental images and to recognize that a sentence doesn't make sense when my brain reads a word wrong. Same for technical text.

    I saw Top Gun at least 30 times. I could not get enough of the F-14 dog fights with MIG-22s.

    Whenever I traveled to San Diego, I always made time to drive to Miramar to watch the fighter planes taking off and landing. There is nothing else coming close to the sensation.

    Don't know about a sequel. If past experience is of any indication, sequels rarely live up to expectations and rightly so. Most of them are snoozers. But of course it may not be this time.

    Thanks for the heads up.

      You bet. The footage looks very good in this one. Been a long wait... I got my pilots license in college after seeing the movie, thinking also that I might go into the military to fly. But, the movie worked up a real frenzy in applicants, and things were very impacted. I just made money and paid for my own air time for many years. I probably would have enjoyed being a military pilot. I'm thinking F-18 navy pilot would have been a good fit. A friend of mine watched a goofy kid grow up locally to go on to flying F-22s. That'd be amazing. What a machine...

    I was on the USS Enterprise from 1983-1986. That was the Aircraft Carrier that was used for the first Movie. Got to meet Goose and Iceman but no Cruise. Still was an adventure.

    I used to live in Fallon, Nevada back in the 80's and 90's. Many of the desert scenes in Top Gun were filmed in the air spaces and bombing ranges around Fallon NAS. I worked at a gold mine surrounded with bombing ranges and we would regularly get quite the show with the real Top Gun pilots training. I still visit Fallon fairly frequently and last summer was hanging out at the Fallon Municipal Airport. I heard from locals that they were filming the sequel out and about in Western Nevada airspace again as we spoke. They were parking film crews and equipment on major mountain tops and ridges and flying film drones to get the flight scenes. Should be pretty interesting stuff.

    I enjoyed the first "Top Gun" and will go see "Maverick".

    From the article: "It will be interesting to see if Top Gun: Maverick's brand of testosterone-fueled, pro-military entertainment flies (sorry) as well with modern audiences as Top Gun's did when it opened in 1986." I suspect as much as the PC propaganda machine has been working overtime to convert the boys to girls, one good flick could set it all straight - depending how deep the damage is.

    I enjoyed the original Top Gun again a couple weeks ago. Excellent entertainment. I hope the new one is just as much fun to watch.

      I have the DVD and play it once in a while.

      It was a great movie because everything was in synch: the visual effects, the soundtrack, the characters and the scenery. I especially loved the soundtrack, next to the F-14s.

      It has been said that "Casablanca" became an all time classic because all the actors were perfectly in place.

      Well, maybe not in all over greatness but Top Gun is a classic in its genre.
