If Top Gun is not supposed to be gay, then why was I sucking this movies dick the entire runtime? That's right, this film fucks! And I'm definitely going back for more!
I think I must have been 6 or 7 when I dreamt of this movie. I dreamt of the exact scenario that the characters goes through, except the family were replaced by my parents and I. It's quite the nightmare, and it's bizarre that I didn't know this movie even existed until several years later, when I saw a clip of it in Mark Cousin's The Story of Film: An Odyssey.

It's honestly too stupid. The fact that a studio financed this film is quite baffling. This quote, from the movie, sums up my feels of the movie:
"Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
Scary? not the scary you're thinking of.
Once you get the metaphor, the message is straight forward. But it doesn't bash you over the head with it (unlike what some people think). Aronofsky is just telling it as it is, through his own interpretation of the story. I think it's quite brilliant, the way he pulled it off.
I would like to Highly Recommend this film, but it…
I wish that I was alive when Star Wars, directed by George Lucas, hit theaters. It was a completely original, special effects heavy B-movie that took everyone by surprise. A commercial success. The people's choice. A movie for everyone, old or young, with no strings attached...
That will never, ever happen again.
Whether it be today, tomorrow, or as long as we travel the path that we're currently on in the verse of cinema. That will never happen again.
