I dont think this warrants a BP nomination, personally. Yeah, on occasion a film like Avatar gets one of them, so sure anything is possible. But I don't think this was anywhere near Best Picture quality. Nominate it for a lot of visual and technical awards, though
I thought Far From Home was #1
No Way Home ended up coming in third, surprisingly.
Good for Maverick. Four holiday weekends at number one, and one of few films to be at the top of both the box office and digital home media charts at the same time. I never would've thought it'd be this successful.
Damn this movie is incredible. Went to my 6th viewing this weekend (took mom this time. She loved as much as damn near everyone else). Glad to see it hit number one again!
I agree. The Northman should win Best Picture anyway.
Total nitpick but it doesn’t make logical sense for Hangman to land before Maverick at the end. Shouldn’t he stay in the air to escort Maverick in case there are other enemy jets around?
This is the most universally popular and well received movie in years. People who haven’t gone to movies in a long time even before covid went to see this movie. There isn’t a single notable negative review. If the Academy doesn’t nominate this, then they really are out of touch about why people love movies.
Is that why a film should be awarded Best Picture?
Did I say award? I said nominated. Get off your high horse
The $700m will finally be locked down!
Obviously only possible due to no major releases but it shows how well it’s outlasted many big films that came out way after it.
Endgame didn't get nominated and that I would argue was both bigger, more universally loved, and made a lot more money. So none of those mean it should get nominated
This is not a film. This is an event. I remember my brother taking an 11 year old me to the original in ‘86. It’s the first non-kid movie that I remember seeing in theaters, and it was a really big experience for me. Now, 36 years later I never thought that I’d have that experience again and to have it topped the way this film did. I have seen it 3 times now. My wife has as well. We both remarked that we still get overwhelmed with emotion in multiple scenes. My teenage sons were over the moon with this film as well. It was amazing to share this with them.
There are times where cinematic experiences transcend merely going to see a movie. Endgame was like that, as was Batman Begins and Goodwill Hunting for me. But Maverick seemed to transcend all of those experiences for me.
It’s an emotional opinion for sure, but yeah, I’d throw all of the awards possible at it if it were up to me.
That movie fairly or unfairly will always be considered a comic book movie first rather than “cinema”
Obviously I’m not implying that every movie that makes a billion dollars and an A Cinemascore should be nominated. But there is no denying that Maverick is an achievement that has reached audiences beyond just the comic book crowd.
We’ve all seen far worse movies nominated.
So did Endgame. It beat Avatar for a time. Just reaching a vast audience doesn't mean it will get a nomination
There is only one landing strip and the F-14 was going to make a crash landing on it. Hangman's F-18 didn't pull the over G's limits and wasn't going to be abandoned like the other jets on the mission. So if Maverick's crash couldn't get cleared fast enough from the carrier then the US would have lost another jet and Hangman would run the extra risk that killed Goose a generation before.
Yes that’s exactly what I just said
No I get that argument. But Hangman could have at least escorted Mav back to the carrier
Question for ya’ll. With the amount of money this made and the lack of deaths to main characters, I’m guessing we will get a Top Gun 3 in the next few years, and possibly some films beyond that. I’m not sure that they should do this but it feels likely. If so, how would people feel about a movie where Maverick takes more of a commander role and actually lets the young guns go out and fly the mission? Could it work?
I expect them to at least try and make sequels
If they do, my only request is they don’t make Teller regrow that mustache again.
It is well past time for Maverick to be retired and give another Captain a decade younger the chance to be a CAG. If anything the show needs to move on to Rooster, maybe as a squadron commander like Rocky moved on to Adonis Creed Johnson.
Just going on another all but impossible mission seems to be a move into direct to streaming Iron Eagle or aerial Fast and Furious territory.. Perhaps the 12 O'Clock High treatment of a commander dealing with the stress of aircrews not coming back as they are still holding the line and flying into combat with an obsolete aircraft type
