February 8th, 2013 was a miraculous day. The day that some genius decided to bring back one of the greatest films of my generation.
Top Gun in Imax 3D! Doesn't get much better than that. Young Tom Cruise, pilots playing volleyball in tight jeans, phenomenal soundtrack, greatest one-liners of the 80's film genre, and you can't forget the red lips and big hair that is Kelly Mcgillis.
You can only imagine my excitement when finding out that one of my all-time favorite childhood films was coming to theaters. Luckily my co-worker Nanda, not only shares my enthusiasm, but is even more of a Top Gun junkie than I am.
So the 4 of us went to the opening night show and brought our groupie apparel with us. So much fun! And surprisingly enough I actually enjoyed the 3D. Usually it bothers me a little, but it totally worked for this one.
Don't even worry, we are total dorks, and stood here to take a billion pictures. Why not? Life only happens once.
|Yeah! We totally took home a poster!|
As you can tell, I did not have a T-shirt at the show. Like always, I ordered mine from some foreign country and it didn't show up in time. But I improvised. I think it worked out pretty well.
|It showed up about 3 weeks later... ha ha.|
