Top Gun: Maverick

Top Gun: Maverick

Utterly cornball - obviously - but so unrelentingly sincere that it breaks through and ends up being a lot more substantial than you might expect. Kinda feels like Cruise’s version of a Creed, though Tombo is never going to allow himself to be as vulnerable as Sly did. I can’t remember the last time I saw a big budget spectacle that delivers on every intended level as this does. Hugely rewarding if you can give yourself over to the Cruise. Berlin would have worked a lot better than whatever that Lady Gaga trash was though - my only note. Helluva thing!
