Watched without reviewing...

For the record, we've watched the following movies over the last week but as I grew up on them I can't really review them:
  • Witness: Harrison Ford in one of his best performances. What an excellent film!
  • Top Gun: After watching Reign of Fire we couldn't hold ourselves from watching Top Gun again. For me, it was the first time I've watched it with 5.1 sound; however, it was still one of the most ridiculous films ever, the embodiment of everything that's wrong with contemporary Western culture. Featuring the highest ratio ever of cliches for the minute, I will always remember this film mostly for its Mad Magazine parody.

One of the rare cases where the parody is not only better than the origial film, but makes you enjoy it much more.
Do you remember how much we laughed when they had MIGs on their backs and could not see them just because of that "$5 rear view mirror" comment?
I bet everyone at Hadar thought we were crazy.

I sure do... The film sucks big time without the Mad comparison.

P.S. Coming up: a review of LifeForce.
