Ep 193: “Top Gun” (1986)

May 24, 2022

We kick the tires and light the fires through Tony Scott’s classic “Top Gun” and discuss:

  • Cinematography;
  • Editing & Music, aerial combat, connecting sequences through music;
  • Story & Writing, classic 80s plotlines;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

If we worked on the assumption that what is accepted as true really is true, then there would be little hope for advance. – The Wright Brothers

“You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” is indeed by The Righteous Brothers, not sure that I’m glad I knew that though
