Revisiting blog posts of the ancient past

I have taken my essential vitamins and minerals today but apparently it is not triggering monumental brain activity so I am going to revisit a topic from an old blog post: "Top Gun" is gay.
I saw this hilarious re-cut trailer for "Top Gun" and had to post it along with my previous rant about the movie. So enjoy.

You know what else I don’t need to see, the frickin’ volleyball scene from “Top Gun.” OK, hear me out. I am a dude watching this kick-butt movie about fighter pilots and all the cool things that go along with that like partying, flying planes, chasing girls, etc. Then we go to a scene on the beach where all these topless dudes are oiled up, rolling around in the sand, wearing some seriously tight blue jeans, and playing volleyball. It is very jarring to the heterosexual male to go from an awesome action movie to a gay porn scene.

I never saw the movie when it came out. People raved too much and that puts my expectations too high. I am not a Tom Cruse fan.
My computer's sound card is whacked out at the moment, so I have watched this without sound. And you are so right, even silent the gayness shines. Whoever edited this did a stellar job of inserting sexual innuendo to make that point clear. Lots of giggles here.

I like the volleyball scene. A lot.

I don't think I've ever watched the whole movie in it's entirety.

Where the hell's the volleyball scene!!!??? I thought they were on "Highway To The Danger Zone?" No? I saw that film when it first came out and I don't remember no damn volleyball scene!

;)

Suzanne-- it's there by the other one. I gotta tell you, Val looks like he always does... like butter that could melt in your mouth.

Leah said...

Yes, that has truly captured the unspoken love that dare not speak its name just below the surface of that entire movie. And I gotta say, as a girl, it appeals to me!

I can see where a hetero guy might have been tugging at his color during the volleyball scene...

You want to know the most awesome thing about this movie? I saw it when it came out in a theater in Idaho.

unokhan said...

i don't know man, not havin seen the film, all i get between em is an "i can't stand your ass" vibe coming from kilmer

Suzanne said...

Just so you all know, Val Kilmer in real life is an ass. Trust me, it's chronicled. How sad. I used to love him, as an actor of course, but boy did he disappoint as a human being. He's the kinda guy you want to take by the shoulders and shake to sense without being arrested for abuse. Frankly, I don't think you could shake that little!!! And like Cher, I saw it when it first came out. And Unokhan...ya gotta see the film! Trust me!

COADWG, this is one of your classic posts. Too funny.

P.S. Amanda, nah...did you see him on the beach all decked out in wealthy blubber? Johnny Depp is better! Now that's I guy I could sink my teeth into. No, really. ;) XO

Ananda girl said...

Hey Suzanne... you are so right, Johnny Depp is oh so interesting. A much better actor too. I think Val went around that bend awhile back. Too bad.

Phats said...
