In 8th grade I wanted to be a Naval Aviator, just like every other kid I knew at the time. Top Gun was the best recruiting tool the Navy ever had. Every kid int he world wanted to be Maverick or Goose or Iceman (but not Slider, because he was a dick. No one wanted to be Slider.) We all wanted to fly F-16s, ride motorcycles, hit on random chicks in bars with terrible renditions of 60's ballads and play homoerotic games of volleyball.
When they announced there would be a Top Gun sequel, I thought there's no way this is going to work. But now that the trailer for Top Gun: Maverick has been released, I AM SO F**KING IN!!!!!!
Top Gun is back!
