- An opinion piece published by MSNBC has called the smash hit Top Gun: Maverick the “most insidious movie” at the Oscars.
- Top Gun is as insidious as it is entertaining. It does not merely revive a forgotten human-centered spectacle; it also beckons for a return to accepting the American war machine as a beacon of virtue and excitement. It’s a poisonous kind of nostalgia, one that smuggles love of endless war into a celebration of live action,” the article reads.
- The author goes on to say he has no objection to anyone enjoying the film, but adds he hopes “it tanks at the Oscars. It’s possible to make thrilling action without so brazenly priming the public for warfare.”
