Top Gun: Maverick (2022)

The flight scenes are incredible and add like 2 rating points to the movie. Very, very well done. I enjoyed that part very much and is the only reason why I even wanted to watch this in the first place.

The overall story etc. is not that complicated to be honest. It's somehow quite simple, both in its plot and in its Hollywood-blockbusteriness. Not too much of anything and nothing stood out, though I really did not care for the story that much.

So: Like planes and dogfighting? Watch this. Don't? Don't.

Sansho The Bailiff (1954)

A colleague recommended this. It's a typical Japanese movie of the era, with all its quirks and whatnot.

It's a good movie though, but I feel it's one of those where you either have to:
1) really feel it, or
2) have a great cinematographic eye
in order to really appreciate and love it.

So not for everyone, I guess. I certainly didn't fit the criteria from above, so I was not particularly blown away by it.

Charlie Wilson's War (2007)

Interesting, quirky characters, based on real events and makes fun a bit of the American bureaucracy. What's not to like?

It's a bit funny, eventful and interesting throughout. A bit unexplored, yeah, but it sums up the events very well nonetheless. In this style, Pentagon Wars was much much better, but I quite liked this movie as well. The character of Gust Avrakotos was the highlight of the film for me.
