Are fsu fans all like this? Some say yes.
SUCH an amazing script, goose's kid shows up out of nowhere, plays the piano for 25 seconds and now I'm emotionally tied to the character! He hates Tom Cruise because Tom Cruise pulled his Naval Academy papers and set him back 4 years, like that's a real thing lmbo
the best part of the movie was the first 10 mins with the test pilot stuff, that was awesome and had me hyped and then the rest was overboard nostalgia with awesome fighter plane sequences sprinkled in
This thread has already been Lyrtch’d
What part of that can you not see happening? High ranking people pull a shit ton of strings to get their kids into military academies all the time. If he knew the right person, I don't think it's that big of a stretch to deny someone into an academy.
thanks for reading
Movie was mediocre.
I'm switching to guns
if you didn't see it in theaters, then your opinion is kinda worthless
this is more of a reflection of how bad of a spot we are in for movies right now. nothing new has come out for months. seems like the studios have run out of the covid backlog movies
You’re a meaty yoker.
i'm watching it again
Should go see bullet train
That was like the only marquee release in august
this scene is incredibly good
this is always a dog shit take
if your movie requires seeing it in a theater to be great, then maybe the story isn't that good
Getting cunty in the top gun thread
I reply with what I get
i enjoyed all the action bullshit, but the story didn't make any sense.
who is the rich lady with the sailboat and the beachfront bar? why are they using F-18s, why don't the military ppl just hit the nuclear facility with a cruise missile? who is the black guy that shows up randomly doing a half dozen different jobs?
Uhhhhh Penny Benjamin, the Admiral’s daughter
1) Penny Benjamin, the Admiral’s daughter
2) so there can be a movie
3) he’s a Chief Warrant Officer and “random guy who can do like 6 jobs” is pretty much what a CWO is
They also used F18s because that’s what the US military were willing to make available to them.
They did hit the facility with a Cruise missile
What you did there, I see it.
You think I’m clicking a video called Tom Cruise schools the cock…? Nice try!
you know what take sucks? People saying movies should not need to be seen in movie theaters. As if the picture on TV hasn't been getting worse and worse with streaming TV and movies. Plus sound. Plus the size of the screen. GTFO with that awful take
IF IT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD ON MY LAPTOP, THEN IT IS NOT A GOOD MOVIE.
ya man, we've just been putting movies in theaters for 100 years and now streaming comes along and you think the quality is supposed to be 1:1 despite everyone saying this movie is all about how the action looks and sounds.
I watched Dunkirk, exactly as Christopher Nolan would have wanted. On the back of a seat in an airplane on a 4 inch screen using a pair of free headphones.
people have huge 4K TVs and surround sound systems now. You don’t have to see a movie in theaters to get that experience.
Not to be like that guy, but even people with with super nice TVs don't get the imaging the director's wanted when they shot, edited, and finished their movie. I listen to a bunch of movie podcasts where the hosts have huge 4K TVs and talk about the dark spaces they get from watching TV and movies.
there are issues like this:
and in general, when watching at home, you have issues with light entering the room and different things that are set purposefully at a movie theater. And although some people may have an amazing setup for watching movies at home, the reality is that most people just watch on their generic TV at home in their living room or bedroom right next to a window or with whatever lights on. Directors really focus on getting lighting and framing right for their movies. These things matter.
I know it comes off as snobbery, but that's just the reality. You can watch movies at home. You do you. But for a movie like this, it is a vastly different experience.
and lots of theaters dont use great projectors or get them calibrated regularly
how far down this do you wanna go?
Eh, I don't know. Based on what a shitshow it was when my parents attempted to use their ties to Strom Thurmond to get my brother stationed in Charleston, I'm not sure it's that realistic.
I don’t doubt there is something we lose by watching a movie at home as opposed to at a theater. My point is that I don’t think it’s that huge compared to before. I have decent size tvs, surround sound systems and black out curtains. Anyway I doubt want to derail the thread.
I don't think you should have to see a movie in the theaters for it to be good. I do think some movies are a different level of experience in the theater with a packed crowd and all the bells and whistles that come with it than in your living room by yourself or with a much smaller audience where other shit is going on around you. And I think this movie creates one of those types of experiences for a lot of people.
That's why almost all the big movies come out at specific parts of the calendar, and why so many people enjoy seeing them in the theater. The summer blockbuster/popcorn movie as a genre is built around it.
I think it also plays a part and how you perceive a movie like this. You know what you’re getting when you go see it and the shared experience makes your experience more enjoyable thus you see it as a better movie than when you’re at home by yourself.
I would comp it in some ways to modern TV viewing of hugely popular shows where you're watching them in real time and interacting with other fans on a weekly basis, compared to binging through it later by yourself. With TV shows, sometimes it's more enjoyable to binge through it like that, just like sometimes a movie is better away from the hype and expectations that can sometimes ruin the theater experience if it doesn't live up to the hype you built up. But the experiences are very different and can play a part in how much you liked the movie or show.
I saw Inception in a theater and that moment as that movie faded to black - with everyone there leaning forward and gasping/sighing - was one of my favorite moments in any movie ever. And it’s only because I was watching it with a live audience. That experience can’t exist at home.
I want to say I’ve never had this but it wouldn’t be true. While I do enjoy movies at home more, there have been instances when I would have missed out.
Nothing compares to an ideal theatrical experience.
Also, the ideal theatrical experience is difficult to achieve. You're more likely to get stuck next to an obese guy with excruciatingly severe body odor and a walls that are too thin so that the booms and bangs from the screening next door bleeds through and ruins the quiet moments in your film.
people are the reason I hate theaters
my brain will hyper fixate on the smallest of annoyances and I lose focus
The mistake I make is that I expect others to be as respectful and considerate as I am at the movies (i.e. the movie's started so please shut the fuck up!), and when they're inevitably not, it really shits me and, like you, I lose concentration for an important few seconds and miss stuff.
I just don't like not being able to pause it to piss and get a beer
Watched this week at home and still loved it
I do not wish for anyone to kill themselves, hope you all have a nice weekend
*watches Arkansas football*
Nothing is off the table.
Yeah, well, like, nobody asked you
I mean I thought the exact same thing, but shut the fuck up nerd.
The willful suspension of disbelief is killed by internet hard ons
NdGT is like if Carl Sagan was an insufferable know-it-all and not someone who genuinely loved teaching science to people.
