I took my man last night to Top Gun at Imax. It's my guys all time favorite movie. I've only seen bit's and pieces of the movie over the years. I don't know why I've never seen the entire movie?!?
For those of you that are like ehh. I'll give you two great reasons why you should see this in the theater.
One: The movie it's self was really very good. I can see why it's a classic.
Two: Watching it at the Imax in 3d is just plain awesome.
Bonus: Seeing Tom C. as a charming young pilot was entertaining.
Thanks Imax that was worth my extended drive time just to see this movie!

I saw this movie on it's premiere day years ago, in 70mm, in VHS, in DVD, in Blu-Ray and in Digital Copy. Seeing this in IMAX 3D was incredible!! The fighter pilot scenes and the amazing technology implemented by now deceased Tony Scott is truly amazing!! Make sure you grab a limited edition poster if you can...usually after the movie or at customer service desks. The "peel back" advertisement for the upcoming Blu-Ray 3D/Digital Copy Release has a little hidden something for collectors of "Top Gun" memoriabilia. "Great Balls of Fire"!

Really enjoyed the Imax version for clairity, but was disapointed in the lack of sub bass, was hoping the jet take offs would shake you out of your seat.

Being born in 1986, the dream of being able to see the very first movie I ever saw in my life in theaters was an impossible dream. After seeing it last night with low expectations of 3d, I was very pleasantly suprised. The movie's 3d isn't kitschy as it doesn't overdo it on the 3d effects. The effects add a good amount of depth, but nowhere in the amount you'd feel of jet's and missles flying right into your face. The best way to describe it is that it didn't distract from the movie itself, but it definetely helped enhance it. THe sound was just amazing, having only seen and heard the movie all my life with 2 front speakers of a tv, being able to hear the jets roar and scream from all around you during the scenes was amazing. The music and sound effects are just rediculously amazing at theater levels. It was also just amazing to have comradere with a crowd of people that are there to see it because they love the movie so much rather than seeing it with people that never seen it before

If you appreciate the awesomeness of 80's movies, then you'll see this for the rare treat it was. There is only one night left (tonight!) so you better go before you can't! The noise from the jets sounded like you were right there waving them off into flight, and the picture is of course better than its ever been. I laughed at all the old jokes, and even some new ones, like the first shot, aerial of an aircraft carrier with subtitles: "Indian Ocean, Present Day" hahaha - present day!! It was like a time machine - right back to the 80's. If you can make it, you should absolutely go. :>
