So, Top Gun 2 is a go. Is ‘Nights of Thunder’ next?

Tom Cruise has announced that Top Gun 2 is a go and here I am thinking that maybe, just maybe, this sequel is 30 years too late. I am not second guessing TC as an actor, you guys here know that I have nothing but love for him, but why now? I don’t really see the need for a second one anyway. The closure of the original was well done.

However, the sequel might just work if Maverick (Cruise) and his nemesis Iceman (Val Kilmer) are instructors at Top Gun school and they somehow square off against each other. Or they could be fathers enrolling their future pilot sons at the school and the fathers try to one up the other by trying to get their sons to be the top pilot of the school. Too cliché? *shrugging* I think so, too.

Joseph Kosinski (Oblivion) is on board to direct the sequel because Cruise is impressed with his vision on how to handle the story. I am not too keen on this sequel, but if they have a proper story then it might just fly.

Top Gun was emotionally packed. It had fights, insults (especially between Maverick and Iceman), love, heartbreaks, friendship, tears, laughter and even forgiveness.

Over the years, many fans have come to express their dislike of Kelly McGillis as Charlotte. I cannot complain about her performance. I think she was great overall. There is this one scene between her and Cruise that I love. The scene where he runs out of the class and gets on his bike and she chases after him in her car. When she finally confronts him, she admits that she had fallen for him while she keeps her gaze steady. She didn’t falter as she looks at him and he is suddenly doubting himself, wondering if he should/could kiss her or not. She did not help him by leaning forward. She didn’t even smile. She was like ‘I said my part, now you do yours.’ as she looked him dead on in the eye. And he’s like ‘Come on, woman give me a hint here!’

That was an iconic moment. 

Although Cruise did take my breath away as Maverick in this cult classic, this was not the movie that made me fall in love with him. However, I loved the scene where he was trying to pick up Charlotte with ‘Lost That Loving Feeling’.

You never close your eyes anymore when I kiss your lips.
And there’s no tenderness like before in your fingertips.
You’re trying hard not to show it, (baby).
But baby, baby I know it…
You’ve lost that lovin’ feeling,
Whoa, that lovin’ feeling,
You’ve lost that lovin’ feeling,
Now it’s gone…gone…gone… wooooooh

I think it’s time to break out my DVD copy of Top Gun this weekend. Have a great and safe weekend everyone!

The Gal Gadot-Tom Cruise connection

Graham Norton is going to have Gal Gadot, Zac Efron and his favorite, Tom Cruise on the couch on June 02nd. But do you know that Gadot and Cruise has appeared on film together? 

Gadot made a cameo appearance in Knight & Day. She played Naomi, Quintana’s henchwoman and she appeared for a brief moment to make a deal with Cruise’s character, Roy Miller. No, I did not ship them. 🙂

Gadot would be on the couch to promote Wonder Woman which comes out a week before The Mummy and Zac, well, he’s going to talk up Baywatch, a movie that I am skipping altogether. I wonder if Gadot and Cruise remember their on-screen encounter? 😛

I like Graham and I’ll be looking forward to this segment.

Word of the Day: sarcophagus

the-mummy-imax-poster

I am in love with words. Long words. I like spending time trying to pronounce the word accurately before using it in a sentence. Thanks to The Mummy, I can’t unhear today’s word. >.<

MEANING

A stone coffin (that is associated with the ancient civilizations of Egypt, Rome, and Greece).

Sarcophagus in a sentence

The tomb raider tangled in front of the ancient mummy’s sarcophagus as it was being lifted out of its prison.

Universe Pictures reveal Dark Universe cast and official trailer

Universal Pictures

Official logo

Universal Pictures is so confident that Tom Cruise is going to revive their Dark Universe with The Mummy, that they’ve gone on ahead to introduce their DU cast, release an official trailer and announce the next movie.

THE CAST

Russell Crowe as Dr. Jekyll, Javier Bardem as Frankenstein, Tom Cruise as Nick Morton, Johnny Depp as the Invisible Man and Sofia Boutella as the Mummy. 

I am not sure how much further my interest in this Dark Universe can extend beyond Tom Cruise. I don’t have any interest here although when I was young, I enjoyed The Invisible Man. I’m only here for Nick Morton.

THE NEXT MOVIE

The Bride of Frankenstein was announced as the next movie in this shared dark universe. It will be released on February 14, 2019. Universal has canceled their plans to release a 2018 film.

THE TRAILER

*sighs* Those black and white films were wickedly awesome back then! 

I’m going down with this ship!

WARNING: prepare for an onslaught of photos and GIFs. 🙂

A week ago, I touched on what the term shipping means for crazy fandoms. This post was supposed to get done since last week, but time ran away from me.

Whenever I see two people with insane SIZZLING chemistry crackling between them, I’m like, get married already and have some babies! Then I ship it.

Although I am not a crazy shipper, I do ship a few things.

I tuned into Riverdale for Cole Sprouse, but ended up staying for Bughead:

I don’t ship them that hard, but they’re the cutest thing in the show although I don’t think they’re going to last.

I appreciate Wonder Woman with Superman!

They’re kindred spirits and when they kiss, it’s more than what she’ll ever have with Batman and him with Lois because you can feel the passion around the crackling electricity.

WW is not your typical ‘damsel in distress’ as Lois Lane. Like her, Kal-El has the soul of a warrior. Some fans prefer to see them with humans, but Supes is a god and he deserves a goddess and there isn’t another goddess on Planet Comic that is better suited for him.

I honestly don’t care for 101 reasons why Supes and Diana shouldn’t be in a relationship. I don’t care how bland they appear because of their hotness (deal with it!), this is my ship and I like them together.

Superman/Wonder Woman- In love the paradox occurs that two beings become one and yet remain two. - Erich Fromm:

The universe was at peace. Superman had found his soulmate. (This bit is taken from my SM WW fan fiction story 🙂

And then there is Ilsa Faust and Ethan Hunt…

Faust and Hunt are both spies. They’re outrageously talented in their respective fields, cool and confident under pressure, capable of seemingly superhuman feats of espionage excellence.

Ethan Hunt and Ilsa Faust is my other favorite ship and I hope they end up together [somehow] in MI6.

And if this [‘The Mummy’] is good, I’ll ship it, because… chemistry!

So the question is: who do you ship?
