The making of "TOP GUN"

Recommended Posts


TG has been running on FX for about a week, I just saw it in entirety today. I actually got in an arguement about the existance of the MiG 28s with a guy at work who ended up losing 5 bucks to me.

Or may a N.A.T.O codename like "Fake" or "Forced-due-to-lack-of-resources" ?

You may not care, but it so happens that I was stationed on the U.S.S. Enterprise back when the movie "Top Gun" was filmed on-board.

 

Tom Cruise was a jerk. (Wouldn't talk to anybody. Nobody liked him).

 

Everyone else was quite nice (I, for one, expected less from the "Hollywood" crowd).

 

Some of my friends/shipmates got "bit parts" (non-speaking) in the movie, and I still get a charge out of seeing them again when I play the DVD.

 

DARoot

[Yeah, I'm THAT old ....]

I allways supported Val Kilmer. I saw it first when i was about 6 or 7, and Batman Forever was my fav film. Tom Cruise is one of these people you plot with your "a**hole sensor" when onscreen. Talking about BatMan, so do i feel about Christian Bale.

Real Genius was the 2nd film I saw him in, but granted it was great.

The first was Top Secret! from the makers of Airplane! and Kentucky Fried Movie. That was a great film too. :grin:
