Quoted from pch3727:
In all seriousness, it's a dumb fun action movie. Let people enjoy it. Not everything needs to be art house cinema with a message.
Well... yah, thats the point. Why get on here and dog any movie just because it's not your thing?
I don't know why anyone brought up Maverick in this thread in the first place.
Comparing a movie that requires zero thought to one that requires nothing but doesn't make sense.
I like dumb movies when Im in the mood. I'll check out Maverick on a day where I don't want to think in the same way Ill eat fast food if I am bored or hungry enough.
