So Top Gun is back in theaters for a brief stint (aka instant money maker) re-mastered or something in IMAX. I’m currently sitting in the theatre after the husband paid $17 per ticket plus some “service” fee (we haven’t actually had much interaction with anyone yet that provided said “service” except for the teenager that tore our tickets and gave us the special IMAX goggles). Just for reference, the average cost of a ticket in 1986 when Top Gun was released was $3.71.
We made sure to get here early. Fifty minutes might have been an over estimate– we were the first ones here. I’ve not seen an IMAX movie; I rarely see movies at the theatre (largely due to a pattern of napping during movies. At home and in the theatre). This will be a new adventure. Not quite Bucket List adventure (how about that theatrical reference?! I saw that in multiple parts via DVD) but new all the same. I can’t help but wonder in this re-release “does goose die in this one, too??”
It’s time to put my fancy glasses on. I’ll post my review later. Until then, take some time to brush up on the lyrics to “You’ve Lost that Loving Feeling”.
