Tarantino explains what "Top Gun" was really about

Sorry if you all have seen this before. I suspect this clip has already made quite a few rounds online - but I just found it yesterday while researching a "Top Gun" scene. (Lest you think I've suddenly morphed into a cheesy Hollywood film specialist, allow me to explain: A real-life fighter pilot who has a cameo in this move is about to become the top U.S. commander in the Pacific. I'm writing about him.) Anyhow, enjoy:

while there's no denying the gayness of top gun, mr. tarrantino makes one crucial error in his analysis. the last lines maverick and ice man say to each other are:

ice man: you're still dangerous, but you can be my wingman any day.

maverick: bullshit, you be mine.

for even better unintentional gayness, see point break, a tale of forbidden love between an fbi agent (keanu reaves) and his quarry, a mystical but ruthless bank robber (patrick swayze).
