‘Top Gun’ Plot Summary

In Top Gun, Pete “Maverick” Mitchell begins Miramar’s elite Fighter School, also known as Top Gun. As the overly-impulsive pilot competes with the best of the best, he meets a group of people who shapes his future for better or worse. Charlie is the flying school’s curvaceous astrophysics instructor, whom he falls for. Iceman is a brilliant and highly competitive fellow student that’s is every bit Maverick’s foil. As Maverick’s training progresses, he loses his best friend and Radar Intercept Officer, Goose. Throw in the increased haunting of his father’s death under mysterious circumstances, and our hero must find a way to suppress all his emotions if he is to take the prestigious Top Gun Trophy.

Good first episode. Look forward to what films you do in the future.

Good first episode, although not your best. Completely disagree with you guys on your views of the film. I don’t believe that the film was designed to be home-erotic. I believe that as in most films, the viewer takes away what they want to take away from a film. You guys should look at yourselves for the “homoerotic undertone.” Regardless, Top Gun is one of the greatest 80’s films of all time.

Thanks for listening and thanks for the feedback. I agree their intent wasn’t to make a homoerotic film, that’s what makes it funny. We can only take what they give us. Enough about the film, you sound kindof hot, are you single?

How can anyone not like the Hudsucker Proxy, Greg? It is un-American. You know, for kids. Although I do agree with you that Tim Robbins throws like a girl.
