    thought I had included that post. Added it in.

    Oh absolutely. This movie had all the makings of a cheesy reboot that would be as bad as the Independence Day sequel.

    Then they dropped this beauty on us.

    I think I made it through about 20 minutes of the ID4 Sequel before I gave up. It was SOOOO bad.

    Hadn't seen the first one until early this week. Didn't see this one until today. First one didn't live up to the hype for me (understandable, since it came out 35 years ago). Second one exceeded it. Incredible movie.

    If someone made a list of the 50 most popular movies of the 1980s, I'd be surprised if I could look at it and say I've seen 12-15 of them. And the number of them that I actually remember beyond "I think I might have seen parts of that when I was really little" would maybe be 5. Just not my era and I've never made the effort to watch them. I probably wouldn't have watched Top Gun if this movie hadn't come out and gotten insane reviews.

    How in the world did you think they couldn’t have a better soundtrack?? The first one played 2 songs over and over.

    It's my favorite movie of all-time also.

    I've seen it at least 50 times and know every line. It is a masterpiece.

    Michael Mann is one of the best directors of the last 30 years in my opinion.

    It’s at $473 million domestic and adjusted for inflation it’s grossed more than the 1st one domestically. It’s at $884 Globally with South Korea to open next week.

    They really played the hits the first 20 minutes or so. Ngl I teared up at a few goose moments.

    No Berlin and no Righteous Brothers, tho.

    My biggest issue was the song during the beach scene. Had a golden opportunity for any number of bangers, and they chose some weak shit.

    Finally saw it… I watched the original almost every day when I was 8-9 years old, along with Memphis Belle. Loved this one.

    Righteous Bros is the only thing I felt was missing.

    I thought it was very solid, especially for a sequel made over 30 years later.

    A few thoughts or gripes would be I thought the dialogue got a bit exposition heavy and some of the “cool” stuff felt forced (banter scene playing pool). Also, I thought I was watching Behind Enemy Lines II after they got shot down.

    Memphis Belle is a classic.

    I was hoping for some Righteous Bros too and assumed they’d use it somehow. I guess since that was Maverick and Charlie’s song and she was totally unmentioned in the new film, they kept it out.

    I watched the first one a week before the new one came out and realized they play "Take my breath away" for what seems like 30 minutes in the original.

    I finally got around to seeing it. I enjoyed it. A lot of parts were pretty cheesy but the parts that were good were so good that it overcame that. Could have done without the love interest in this one. I don’t feel it added much to the story. Does anyone else not enjoy movies as much now because of the way they’re shot? They almost seem too real. Almost like soap operas.

    I disagree on the love interest thing. It's 10x better suited for this movie than the love element of the original. They didn't need it in this one, but it made sense and it gave us Jennifer Connelly.

    Agreed. The love story element felt rushed and unnecessary.

    I think that it would have been a great ending to have Mav blown to pieces for Goose’s son.
