Part of me wants to break down barriers, set people free and make the world a better place. A bigger part of me wants to sit on the sofa, drink tea and play through old Nintendo games.

30/05/06 : Top Gun
As it was just on the TV and I have nothing else to do right now, I thought I'd review the afore mentioned 20-year-old film.
Ace fighter pilot - bit of a wild card - goes to an elite training school. Falls for cute female instructor. They fuck in silhouette. His friend gets killed. He quits. He returns. There's a battle. Good guys win.
Actually, if you can ignore the jingoism, it's a great film - entertaining and visually stunning. Great soundtrack too, which I'll have to re-buy someday.
I actually remember going to see it with my dad and step-brother when I was 14. Nearly 20 years ago . . . makes me feel old!
