There’s been some talk about Top Gun 2 with Tom Cruise and producer Jerry Bruckheimer attached to the project, but now it seems that the long-awaited sequel is starting to ramp up a bit. Earlier today a very excited Val Kilmer posted an announcement on his Facebook page that will have Top Gun fans ready to get back to theaters. It seems that Kilmer received an offer for Top Gun 2. That’s right, the Iceman cometh! (more…)

There are a lot of bad movies floating around, and there are a lot of bad songs that go along with them. Action films — particularly those from the 1980s — have many of the worst soundtracks, and yet some of our most iconic verses have come from Rocky, The Karate Kid and so forth. Did any of the Members Only-jacket-wearing producers at the time know this would happen? Of course not. Will they take credit for our love of cheesy lyrics and guitar solos? Absolutely.
 
After the jump, check out 10 oddly mesmerizing songs from the action films of yesteryear. Fair warning: these songs will suck up valuable brain space, and you’ll be singing them for hours.

The Day the Movies Died

Top-Gun-Inception

Have you been disappointed by movies this year? What about last year?

One of the biggest problems are the sheer amount of sequels (and other third, fourth, etc…) movies being produced by Hollywood. Apparently, in 2011, there will be a record 27 placed into theaters.

How does that even happen? Isn’t there any original content left in Hollywood?

In a GQ column called The Day the Movies DiedMark Harris does just that. He informs us how Hollywood has gone wrong, by weaving a story from  Top Gun to Inception to Stretch Armstrong, and that this cycle may never end.

This expose is a must-read for anyone who loves the entertainment industry (like I do), and thinks that Hollywood is not doing their best damn job. I mean, some sequels are a great idea! But others are sometimes rushed into production, and the story and/or acting suffers (Iron Man 2, Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and 3, and more!)

What do you think about the movie industry? Sound off in the comments!
