    Are there no original ideas in Hollywood?
    Sequels, prequels, reboots and just blatant copies.

    Let's see if it is as good as the Karate Kid YouTube series. This time it is Iceman's story.

    I will go see it. Loved the first one and can't wait for this one.

    I have the 3D conversion but I still haven't watched this version. I guess I will soon.

    I don't expect too much. I'm usually let down by conversions.

    Now that you mention it, I tend to agree.

    Maybe now they will shoot the new one with IMAX 3D cameras.

    Maverick re-imagned as a pacifist, Maverick resigning his commission as a result of the (first, or second) Iraq war, (and I know an officer who did just that), Maverick maturing sufficiently to no longer feel the need to measure himself by his father's achievements......

    ...these might be interesting stories, as they would imply some sort of actual character development, but no more gun ho nonsense please.

    And yes: Give us Iceman's story.

    Otherwise, my initial question (asked also by @Apple fanboy) remains: Are there no fresh tales, new narratives, original stories left to tell in Hollywood?

    Some people complain that it seems it will not be an F-35 movie. There will be a LONG time to make a third one.

    I would love to see this in IMAX! Not so much in 3D, but IMAX format... take my money!

    I'm not a Tom Cruise fan at all, and I have no expectations for this movie whatsoever

    However, I will say, Top Gun was one of my all time favorite movies

    I've been waiting for this for over a decade now. Ever since the rumors began swirling in the glitz of Hollywood.

    Oh, and please spare me the presence of a vacuous love interest half his age; I'd like to see him still with Kelly McGillis, a woman with intellect and experience who has lived life with him.
