Saturday Matinee: Why You’re Wrong About Top Gun

I love this short film about Maverick’s character in Top Gun but I disagree with its premise. Culturally, filmmakers, scriptwriters, and marketers may have forgotten that Maverick was a vulnerable, unsure kid but I never did. That’s what made this movie so great and made all the copycats so bad. And that’s what made Tom Cruise’s performance so amazing.
