Top Customer Reviews
Top Gun's obvious strength is the aerial visuals. Not since perhaps Howard Hughes' Jet Pilot has there been such an ambitious attempt to capture the look and feel of high performance flight. The F-14's photogenic qualities combine with Tony Scott's signature backlighting to create a terrific sense of energy and screen presence for the Grumman bird. The tactical realism may suffer, but the tight spacing and resulting packed frames of the ACM sequqnces are uniquely energetic and fast-paced. It is a shame that this may be the last time that anyone goes to the expense and hassle of using real film to capture such manuevers. The footage still compares favorably to state of the art CGI 20 years after its release.
The non-flying scenes are remarkable only for the collection of young talent that would eventually drive box office returns for a good part of the '90s. But the greatest compliment I could give the plot and acting is that they don't detract from the pacing and cohesiveness of a visually-driven movie.
*RE: Review Title- OK3 is the best grade possible for US Navy pilots performing carrier landings.
The TOP GUN 3D case includes two discs, a Blu-ray 2D and Blu-ray 3D disc. There is also an UlTRAVIOLET Code to Download a Digital Copy.
Both Blu-ray discs have three audio choices: DTS Master Audio, Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Digital sound.
The video of the 2D TOP GUN Blu-ray is as good or better than previous releases of this title. The audio from both discs is also excellent.
The big disappointment is the 3D BD version, which is probably the main reason someone would buy this movie re-release. The video noise is so great that it is one of the worse grainy blu-rays I've seen. Even with turning the sharpness all the way down on my OPPO BD Player the grain was still unsatisfactory. I also checked the disc on a Panasonic 3D BD Player and the grainy picture was still present.
Yes, the 3D effect of the jets in the air does add depth enhancement but the grain problem distracted so much I would just rather watch the 2D version or turn-on the simulated 3D feature of my 3D HDTV.
TOP GUN is one of my all time favorite movies and was the disc of choice to demo back in the days of Laser Discs. It is regrettable the studio did not do a better job in making the 3D pristine clear like so many other remastered old movies.
I am seriously re-thinking the purchase of anymore DVD's from Amazon because of this return policy.

|i have the hd dvd one||
The BD copy has a pretty consistent 30Mb/s bitrate and DTS Master Audio in 6.1. I found it to be superior to the HD-DVD, which only has standard DTS-ES and a lower video bitrate. Both have Dolby TrueHD, but I think it is 16/48 vs the 24/48 for the DTS-HD-MA on the BD version.
So, yea, it's... Read More

the movie is taking place in a fantasy world. in 1986. and things didn't get cozy with gorby until 1987 , he was not seen as a friend till then.
|Quentin Tarantino's take||
there's no gay theme. it's in his head. there are plenty of gay people in the military , but the theme here was about being top gun and getting the girl. there are scenes that are gay themed in other movies , for instance in ben hur there's a scene etc. but not in this one.
|What is Kelly McGillis eating in the dinner scene at her house?||
she was married to several men. and had kids with one. she only later became a lesbian. at that time she was not a lesbian and she was only in her twenties. she's now 50++. but her sexuality doesn't matter really.. she did a great job on this movie.
