Tossin’ It Out There: What do YOU think of Tom Cruise?

“Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol” opens wide tomorrow. It was an awesome flick and is getting great reviews, but one of the big concerns going in was – would Tom Cruise still sell as an action star?

We’ve had 30 years of Tom Cruise now. He made his big screen debut in 1981. He has 37 films on his IMDb page. That’s a large body of work.

But a lot of people tuned out during his crazy time, when he was attacking Oprah like the Emporer, and then telling Matt Lauer that he was an expert on the history of psychiatry. MI:3 bore the brunt at that time… will MI:4 as well?

So what do YOU think of Tom Cruise? Can YOU handle the truth? What are your favorite movies of his? What are your favorite Tom Cruise breakdown moments? Would you rather your favorite Hollywood Stars practice voodoo than Scientology? Was Les Grossman enough to win you back?

Let’s hear it!! 😀

  1. “I can even stand Cocktail for the Elizabeth Shue value.”

    Adds like a +20% to any film, doesn’t it? But I’ll toss that movie a couple of additional props. 1) the bottle tossing, show off bartender stuff is impressive and fun 2) For a movie that was marketed as a feel good, happy go lucky flick, it has one of the darkest freaking turns ever. LOL

    I’ll confess to not having seen Valkyrie… a good example of Tom Cruise fatigue right there.

    I dont know that I can recommend “Eyes Wide Shut” even if it is Kubrick, but you should give Magnolia a shot. That’s an excellent flick. Kind of a bit on the artsy, ambitious side of things, but if it connects with you, it’s stunning. GREAT cast. Cruise, Jason Robards, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, William H Macy, Julianne Moore. I’m sure I’m forgetting people too.
