What are local people saying about Top Gun Maverick?
I have never had so many friends and locals talking about a film! Wow.
“For my generation, Top Gun was THE movie to see in 1986. It was one of the first movies my boyfriend Danny and I went to see together. Danny is no longer with us and I got very nostalgic thinking about him and all those years ago seeing the original Top Gun. TC (Tom) did not disappoint. I grinned throughout the movie…when I wasn’t tearing up. 😢. I remember thinking I could be a Navy female fighter pilot after seeing the original until I found out you had to have perfect vision in order to do so, which I did not have and still don’t. Bomber jackets became the style. The soundtrack was and still is epic. Everyone saying “I feel the need, I feel the need for speed!” Memories last a lifetime.👍🏼👍🏼” — Audra Miller (Joplin)
“It’s unanimous! Our whole family loved Top Gun Maverick ❤️❤️” — Rod-Amy Gannaway (Webb City)
“I watched the 6pm at the indoor theater. Then watched the 9pm at the drive inn. I think I liked it. 😉 Twice in one evening.” — Rodney Evans
“Finally got to go out for our anniversary tonight. Went to dinner and saw Top Gun Maverick. It was SO GOOD! Best movie I’ve seen in a very long time and ready to watch it again.” — Vickie Burke (Webb City)
