Husband recently told me that he heard there’s going to be a sequel to Top Gun. The more details he told me he heard, the more far-fetched it sounded, and I didn’t believe him. He assured me he wasn’t joking.
Well, I checked the internet, and it turns out that there really is a sequel in the works.
Even though the movie is really nothing like real military life, it’s a classic that we love anyway. We have not one, but two copies of it, since we each had our own copy before we got married. (Although I think that at some point we might have given one away.)
And yes, we like to quote some of the memorable lines:
- “You don’t have time to think up there. If you think, you’re dead.”
- “Yeeha, Jester’s dead!”
- “Talk to me, Goose.” [True fact: Sometimes when one of Husband’s pilot friends calls, he answers the phone like that as a joke.]
And, of course:
- “I feel the need…the need for speed.”
Will the sequel (if it gets made) be as good as the original? Probably not.
Will we still see the movie anyway? Definitely yes.
