Top Gun: Maverick

Top Gun: Maverick ★★★★

This is what I've missed. Something humble, wholesome, reverent, but still feels timeless and never gets to the point where it's overbloated. I used to say "I'm sick of blockbusters" but I guess what I really meant was "I'm sick of substance-less, effects-driven tv episodes disguised as movies".

I am so happy this exists. I smiled so much and this was probably my favorite theater experience I've ever had. A crowd that laughed and cheered but were never infuriatingly obnoxious about it. It was a respectful crowd that treated the film with dignity and also had a great time. Man, I'm so happy right now.
