Top Gun - Maverick.

Some of the same music and a bit of similarity in the storyline. Must say though that I enjoyed the action part of it (actual battle scenes) better than the first one as there were multiple facets of it as compared to the first movie when there was basically just the one

Good visual effects thanks to better technology nowadays

Went and saw this also with my 2 boys on Saturday night.  Saw it in 4DX which has the seats moving, wind blowing and the occasional water spray.  I think a few people in the cinema forgot to hold onto their popcorn and drinks though......

about a week ago, i watched the "Donut King" on SBS.

I spend more time on SBS than the normal stations these days. (only 1 or 2 hours each day.....tops)

Its a slow movie, but tells the tale of a Cambodian refugee who gets to the USA and makes it big in donuts.
He even buys a $2,000,000 home back in 1985..... he's worth millions.

Then gambles the lot down the Shitter.

He's in his 80's now and dirt poor.

Haven't seen it yet, but have heard mention that it's all filmed with live aircraft being flown by serving USN pilots.

I watched it today, loved it.  Some really nice throwbacks to the first one, some are really subtle that only the diehards would notice.  My only critique is that it doesn't have as many classic one-liners as the original, eg. "you screw up just this much, you'll be flying a cargo plane full of rubber dog Shit out of Hong Kong".

What they did for Val Kilmer is also something pretty special I thought.

The majority of the flight scenes (especially the in-cockpit shots) is real footage, but there is still some CGI.  Without giving too much away I don't think they would be able to film F-18's alongside a bunch of Tomahawk missiles in flight.
Do not PM me for technical advice - start a thread.

The Nazi documentaries on SBS have gone up a notch.

On Sat and Sun (5:30) they covered a different battle plan in each episode.

Better presenters doing it too.

Pretty cool bit of history covered that i'd never heard of.

Worth a look IMHO

Finaly got to see  TOP GUN MAVERICK ..
 IMO it was pretty well fairly done, Probably the one of the few slight critiques  would be a bit too much referencing back to the original ..
 But still good enough to be its own stand alone movie .
Fairly basic in the general theme, Fans of the original StarWars  will draw a direct link to the Death star trench run  scene / for the mission  ..
As expected the CGI is very good and mixes with the Actual inflight scenes realy well in most views .. Especialy like the real inflight scenes and G effects on the actor pilots ..
One minor irit is a couple of Hollywood unrealistic moments  " the oxygen mask off for the full face talk shot " early in the film / fixed in the following scenes plus the ending segment, Gooses son has never been in an F14 and suddenly at the right moment can find and operate the Flare counter measure  controls marked in a foreign language [ yep hollywood saved the day again ] ..
The carrier landing ending is another, That is way too Hollywood ..
A solid 8.5 out of 10 movie for me though

The bit where Maverick walked into the diner after crashing the stealth plane was funny

Thirteen Lives

Based on the Tham Luang cave rescue.

Pretty good, although there were far more people involved in the rescue than portrayed in the film.

Uncharted is good. Like national treasure
The gray man is also good. Its a little bit like Bourne identity type movie
I also didn't mind that 13 lives movie.
