Peter Fenzel, Mark Lee, Ryan Sheely, and Matthew Wrather climb into the cockpit for Top Gun: Maverick, which came roaring into theaters afterburners a-firin’ over Memorial day weekend. We talk about our early experience of the original movie, the mythic geometry of the action sequences, the themes and techniques of this genre-hopping remake, and we don’t leave without thanking the Iceman.

    I hope not, but is the 90s movie about kids being recruited to operate drones Toys, starring Joan Cusack and Robin Williams?

    The enemy in the movie doesn’t matter because the enemy in real life doesn’t matter. Both are manufactured for spectacle. The movie/war is going to happen, and we’re going make it happen.
