TOP GUN II-The Later Years Coming Soon!

It's been 30 years and finally, finally word comes that all movie fans have been waiting for! "Top Gun II, The Later Years" will be a reality according to TC himself. Pick A Flick has obtained the plot for this wonderful sequel set to be released in time for Summer of 2018! If you don't want to know the plot, please look away or stop reading. The scene is set in the later years, on Venice Beach, California and we find the Top Gun pilots Maverick, played by TC, Iceman, Cougar and Wolfman close to the volleyball court. No the former pilots/VB players aren't playing volleyball, they are entangled in game of shuffleboard. Having lost in checkers, TC is trying to redeem himself and beat Iceman but is too tired to continue.

A few minutes later, a young man walks up and introduces himself as Goose Jr., son of Lt. Nick Goose Sr. who died in the first flick. Goose Jr. has a problem and only TC can fix it or so it seems. You see Goose Jr. is trying to become a pilot, but he sucks at volleyball and flying. Seeking Maverick's help, he begs for him to teach him how to hit a volleyball and to fly a jet! Iceman, who is nodding off in a lounge chair, wakes up and reminds Maverick he is the only Top Gun and that he, TC, is his wing man.

Maverick gets pissed, grabs his walker, and tries to hit Iceman. Maverick falls down on the shuffleboard court, then falls asleep. A pouting Goose Jr. walks away, but Iceman grumbles that only one person can help him. No, its not Viper...its not Jester...they are both pushing up daisies. It's Charlie!!! Thats right, Kelly McGillis is back as "Charlie" and we mean she is "Charlie". No longer Charlotte Blackwood, Charlie is transgender! We cant wait for the sequel and will post more information about it as we get it.............................

The Seven Five Will Piss You Off!

The Seven Five

 2015 Rated R 104 minutes

Director: Tiller Russell Michael Dowd, Ken Eurell, Chickie

Being in law enforcement I could careless about watching thug cops being featured in a documentary. My love of film and docs overruled my hatred for bad cops so I decided to revisit this flick from 2015 called “The Seven Five” named for the 75th precinct in New York City. Michael Dowd is the feature of this flick, chronicling his years as a New York City beat cop. He was convicted and spent 12 years in federal prison for Racketeering and distributing narcotics. Russell allows Dowd and his cronies to get under your skin thus accomplishing the mission of a true documentary. Well Done Russell!
