“Top Gun” is making a 5 day tour on IMAX 3D before it is released on blu ray next Tuesday. I didn’t hesitate to go, “Top Gun” has been seen by virtually everyone and 12 year old Paul was a huge fan too! I was 4 when it was released in theaters but I wore out the VHS and the Nintendo game(which was overly difficult). I don’t need to review the film for you, if you haven’t seen it you need too if only for the volleyball scene. The following are my thoughts on how the film has held up, and the goodness of seeing it in the IMAX format.
The death of Osama Bin Laden in 2011 was a time of national and self reflection. Staring at the television set, tears welling in my eyes, I didn’t imagine his death would affect me the way it did. I was a college Freshman on September 11th 2001 and I will never forget how vulnerable I felt, and while Bin laden’s death didn’t make me safer, or didn’t actually mean that we won a war, I still felt relieved, that a giant burden had been lifted.
