    IMAX 10 miles or Dolby 45 miles?

    Dolby. The screen size isn't much smaller than IMAX and you get noticeably better sound/picture quality with Dolby.

    Not sure if it's standard at all theaters, but my dolby location has reclining leather seats as well. Not sure how far out of my way I'd go for that, but it's a nice bonus

    Yeah. I think those seats are standard in all Dolby theaters. I don't think I would ever pick seeing something in IMAX again over Dolby if the option is available. I saw The Batman in Dolby opening weekend and then I saw it the following weekend in IMAX just to compare. Dolby was so much better and it wasn't really close.

    Is it kid (7 & 9) appropriate? Will they be bored?

    They will not. Took my 10 & 12 y/o and they were on the edge of their seats the whole time.

    They'll love the flying scenes. Had a kid around that age sitting behind me and his reactions/commentary were almost as entertaining as the movie itself

    Took the 8 year old, he loved the movie overall.
    There were points he was bored, but he entertained himself by making a couple of finger sized napkin airplanes and playing dogfights with them during the slower scenes

    He was literally on the edge of his seat the last 20 minutes or so of the movie

    I sat in the next to last row and during one of the scenes at Connelly's house this old guy yelled at this kid to put his phone away and then the kids mother yelled back "don't talk to my son".

    I thought there was about to be a fight and at a lesser movie there probably would have been

    Saw a Friday matinee. First time at a Dolby theater. The rumble in the seats from the jet engines had me fist pumping.

    It’s why I usually go to 21+ Cinebistro’s for the last eight years. Less teenagers. Fri night was the first time I went to a normal theater and people were fine outside of clapping at parts. Never got that.

    Probably one of the best in theater experiences of my life despite sky high expectations.

    10/10 would watch again.

    most of the emotional stuff and callbacks to the original felt unearned or heavy-handed the flying + military strat stuff was as good/fun as anything i've seen in the theater

    overall, i really liked it --- but not to the extent of some of those early tweets that said it's the best blockbuster ever or whatever. glad i saw it at a good theater with a fancy sound system --- wow.

    With how emotional we got with Mav and Rooster scenes shows that how fucking well they portrayed the Mav and Goose friendship in the first movie.

    And how well Cruise and Anthony Edwards pulled that off.

    Glen Powell played the role of a refreshed Iceman as well as possible.

    Impossibly smuggy and it was great.

    Definitely in his approach to flying but as far as the social aspect and character in the story, I think he was meant to be an Iceman type.

    Had this come out on time with no Covid, don’t think many people would’ve known about Kilmer’s condition.

    But since the Amazon doc got released before this, shit hit even harder.

    i could be reading too much into a popcorn action movie but i thought it was an interesting view of a Maverick character who wasn't the protagonist. in other words, it's saying, "this is what Mav looks like to other people."

    Hangman as a pilot personifies being "dangerous". he's one of the best pilots in the squad but he leaves his wingman (mav even mentions something like, "been a long time since i've seen that") and that causes deaths in the wargames. being unreliable, he's stuck on the carrier during the initial mission launch until ultimately coming at the end to save the day. this parallels maverick in top gun '86.

    he looks like an iceman-type bully but i thought that was good subversion. it's not like mav himself in the original was a sweetheart or anything.

    Absolutely loved it. As good or better than the OG. Anyone else have a “is that even possible” moment during a maneuver made by one of the enemy planes? Messaged a buddy of mine that is a fighter pilot after the movie to see if it was possible. Friend of my dad knows a couple of the actual pilots in the movie and is asking them.

    Will own that movie and watch more than a few more times.

    Unsure if that move is possible with thrust vectoring. Kinda surprised they didn’t have more thrust vectoring stuff to be honest, but I’m sure there will be another sequel with the F-35 as the focus

    Russian planes are pretty crazy with their thrust vectoring.



    In many ways they're better at it that US planes are since we have better missiles. They also had off-bore fire control much earlier than US aircraft, which relied on the forward-facing HUD waaaaay too long.

    I kinda figured that since Tom Cruise was insistant on getting actual flight footage the Pentagon wasn't all that stoked about cockpit footage of US F-35s. And I don't think there are many two-seater -35's to use for filming.

    I'm goad I didn't read anything about it before seeing it. Had no idea the Rooster storyline was a thing. I also somehow didn't know about Val Kilmer's condition in real life :tebow:

    I dont remember if it was in the documentary or in one of the interviews that came out around the time his documentary did, but Val said he so far is cancer free and said he feels great and is living a great life, he just sounds terrible
