This won't work.

Problem is, Top Gun is such a byproduct of the jingoistic Reagan 80's.  It's uber-patriotism won't work in today's cynical age. 

Don't get me wrong - as a child of the 80's, I like Top Gun.  But I like it in the same way I like Def Leppard, Wang Chung, square-bottom wool ties, charm bracelets, and so many other 80's icons: as nostalgia from my youth, and that's it.

I kind of like square-bottom wool ties, now you tell me they're out of style? Can I go back to skinny ties yet?

Actually, Rajah...

...skinny ties are making a comeback.  But not made from wool.



That was Riding Fool

He's much older than me. Back when he was young men were still wearing lace and silk stockings.

Excuse me, but

the lace was expensive and the silk was fine.

Square bottom woll ties are out?

This is all part of the same new marketing scheme...

...just like Tron and Wall Street, Top-Gun, (and yes, I'm sure Ghostbusters will pop-up again, along with Gremlins 3, E.T., and whatever else they can drag out of the 80's) if one idea works, why not make more?

There should have been a sequel to Starman

Karen Allen was left preggers by the alien at the end

But seeing how Karen has aged maybe that's not such a good idea

Up next, Goonies II
