Top Gun 2?

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.

No way! This is hilarious! I have an obsession with Top Gun. I thought about being the female version of Maverick for Halloween. I just need a bomber jacket. :)

I've been hearing about the 2nd one too! I'm kinda skeptical about it.

Haha! I love the jokes! We call one of my coworkers Goose.

A sequel can't compare with the original but I would probably watch it anyway. I wore out my VHS tape during the volley ball scene! Oh Maverick... and Ice Man... hot, hot, hot! :-)

I heard about this too! I think it will probably go the way of the Dirty Dancing sequel... or was that one a prequel? I think it's going to flop... but I'll probably see it anyway ;)
