    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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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

    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. :meh:

    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:

    https://www.cnet.com/tech/home-ente...a-effect-is-probably-why-your-tv-looks-weird/

    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.

    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.

    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. :angry:
