Some Things Don't Stand the Test of Time

Top Gun (1986)

I find it almost impossible to enjoy Top Gun now that Maverick is a kook, Iceman is fat, Goose is bald and Charlie is a lesbian. The fact that I now realize you can cut the homosexual tension with a knife in the locker room scenes sort of takes away from the macho vibe too.

And it doesn't help that they've retired the Tomcat. It was my favorite fighter growing up. Yes, I was the kind of kid who had a favorite fighter aircraft. Is it any wonder I was a virgin until last Tuesday?
