MGs, call Kenny Loggins because you are in the Danger Zone. There are two types of people in the world, those who love Top Gun and those who don’t like Top Gun. Over the week we have chatted with a bit of both types of people, where do we fall on the spectrum? Do we hate it or love this film? Tune in to learn our first thoughts of the film as Shawn and Rob both watch this for the first time.
Learn which Tom Cruise film was remade into a movie in Bollywood, Shawn gets turned on, and a special guest returns for a visit during our review of Top Gun.

Review: The Dark Universe Is Off To A Shaky Start With The Mummy.

  So I am a little late to the game here. Took me a while to get this review out but I am finally here to let you all in on how this film did from an entertainment perspective.

Sadly, that was the only thing I remembered when popping in my old DVD copy of Vanilla Sky to watch it again. It was like watching the movie again for the first time. The only thing was is that I know how it ends. I’ll explain what I thought of the movie this time around after the jump.
