Viacom's Paramount Pictures has offered producer Jerry Bruckheimer and director Tony Scott an opportunity to make a sequel of the 1980's cult classic "Top Gun". Tom Cruise, the star of the original film, is expected to make an appearance as Maverick.
Some welcome the idea of a sequel as an anticipated continuation of the hit movie. Others think that Hollywood needs to start getting more original ideas and stop messing with the classics.
Are sequels ever as good as the original? Examples?
