It's all about the presentation

If you're like me and have no life outside of work, then you've probably seen or heard of the recent phenomenon of recutting classic movie trailers and putting a whole new spin on a movie.

This was first made popular, and was probably best accomplished, by taking the classic horror movie, The Shining, and turning it into the feel good movie of the year. The new trailer can be seen here. In fact, I believe reading somewhere that the guy responsible won an award and a nice fat job doing this as a career because it worked so well.

Another one of the better ones is taking the classic comedy, A Christmas Story, and twisting it in to a horror film. Many have tried this and some are funny. But then they had to go and mess with Top Gun. Ok, so Tom Cruise is a little on the weird side now, but back in 1986, Top Gun was a kick-ass fighter pilot movie that the guys could enjoy for the action and the women loved for the "love story".

Now, I don't think I'll ever be able to watch this movie again after seeing this. I give you Top Gun 2: Brokeback Squadron...
