I'm probably going to pass on this disc release along with "War of the Worlds" as I purchase them digitally on iTunes last year so hopefully I get a free 4K upgrade.

Do we have any clue if the accompanying Bluray will be a remastered one?
I hope it is...

Preordered the 4K edition.

Also carted the steel book. Deciding if I want to swing the $10 price difference.

Being I was a college junior in 1986 (and on my way to an military officer’s commission), this film holds some memories for me.

I'd just finished my first year of college when "Top Gun" hit. I did a did in Air Force ROTC but otherwise have no military connection! :D

I've always viewed "TG" as the first meh 80s movie to be its year's top-grossing film.

"Empire", "Raiders", "ET", "Jedi", "Ghostbusters", "Back to the Future" - all wonderful films that I still enjoy.

But "TG"?

Meh, and it "launched" a short run of meh or worse top-grossers in the US: "3 Men and a Baby" and "Rain Man" aren't movies I like.

At least "Batman" finished the decade on a positive note!

I don't need 4K, but have never upgraded this to Blu-ray from our old non-anamorhpic DVD. Do we know if there is any difference between the new Blu-ray edition arriving on May 19 versus currently available copies? Thanks.

Confession time: I’ve never seen this movie.

Yeah, no reason, just never got around to it. Probably the most popular movie that I’ve never seen. My wife insisted on buying it on Blu-ray some years ago when we randomly saw it on the shelf, and still we haven’t watched it.

I hear it’s about a bunch of guys who play volleyball right?

Quentin Tarantino has a pretty good summary. (Note: some salty language.)

It's probably the most definitive film of the 80s, which isn't the same as saying it's the best.

Last time I watched it, it seemed more like a romance with a couple scenes of flying fighter jets.

It has not aged well, IMO.

Yet, a sequel is going to be released once movie theaters are back in business.

One of my favorite movies of all time. Great soundtrack and fun movie. It's totally 80s and love every second of it.

The day my 4k shows up will be GLORIOUS.

I really wonder how that is going to work out.

Full disclosure: I was not alive when Top Gun was in theaters, and it doesn't hold any particular special significance in my life. I saw it on DVD and liked it very much and I will see the sequel for sure. But the movie is very, very much a product of its time that reflects the '80s in an incredibly specific way. It will be interesting to see if the sequel is successful in bringing that into 2020 or not, and what the response will be from younger moviegoers who might not be as acquainted with Tom Cruise for this role as they are with him as, say, Ethan Hunt. I know some of my friends who are around my age or younger who have turned up to see the last few Mission Impossible sequels but have never seen Top Gun, and I don't know if they will come out or not. I will, and I hope the movie is really good. But I do think Top Gun in 2020 presents an interesting challenge, and we'll see if the movie meets it.

I doubt it will be a problem. Based on the trailers, Cruise seems to be playing this as "Mission Impossible with fighter jets."

Even if the Blu-ray is the same as the currently available Blu-ray it’s still going to be better then your DVD.
