Honestly G.D., I've tried my best to hate Tom Cruise, in large part due to the Scientology weirdness that surrounds him, but after watching Jack Reacher a second time, and having re-watched a few of his other flicks over the past year, I honestly think that he is probably one of the best (if not THE best) actor currently making films.  

Go ahead..tell me why Im wrong

He is a wacko but god damn I can't help but enjoy his movies. If he's not the best, he's up near the top for sure.

Because Johnny Depp is. From Donnie Brasco to John Dellinger, George Jung and so on. Guy can play any role

IMO, Leonardo DiCaprio is the top actor.

His performance in Tropic Thunder was phenomenal.

It seems like he takes the profession of acting 87x more srsly than the profession of being a movie star.

IMO, Tom Hanks is the most versatile and believable actor I've ever seen. The man lives his parts.

This is my thinking. As far as I can tell he doesn't throw the wacko BS stuff in anyone's face (besides that whole Ritalin thing and the couch jumping). Also, if he is anti-gun he keeps his mouth shut about it so there you go.

Anthony Hopkins, while an old fart, is also a brilliant actor.

My personal opinion. His acting seems to be pretty much on par with anyone else in movies these days. No better; no worse. But I can't help but wonder just how much of his weirdness is really genuine. I mean in this day in age, the shock factor seems to sell the celebrity more than anything else. Kinda makes me think that the line between publicity and reality is blurred a lot more than we assume. The shock value naturally going up as we become used to the last outrageous thing we saw; kinda like alcohol tolerance.





Cruise had some good movies, that's true. But I suspect that people don't quite gush over him like they used to in the 80s and 90s. Just my $.02...


Link Posted: 1/2/2016 8:57:01 PM EDT
I enjoy his movies but everything he does just screams ACTING! to me.

I like Cruise's picks for Sci-Fi.  And that last MI film, anyone that would actually strap himself to the side of a plane taking off and still say his lines, damn.

Ditto. That movie single handedly turned me back into a Cruise fan. That end scene with him dancing is unreal.

And then he goes and does douchey stuff again.

And then I see another movie and become a semi-fan again.

But he has done some really nasty shit. I just found out about how he had Scientology pimp him that hot Iranian chick from the first two seasons of Homeland. And he has brainwashed the two adopted kids from his marriage to Kidman so they think she is evil. Their daughter just got married to another Scientologist and she did not even invite her mom.

Go watch the 'Medal of Valor' videos on Youtube of him getting the medal. He's a fucking loon.

Tom Cruise's BEST movie EVER........

Edge of Tomorrow.

WHY?

Because, if you LIKE TOM CRUISE, everytime he get's killed, he comes back alive.

AND, if you HATE TOM CRUISE, you get to see him DIE time after time after time!!!

Link Posted: 1/2/2016 9:05:51 PM EDT
I don't think Tom Cruise is the best actor out there but I like most of his movies. He has found a "good guy come from behind" formula that works for him and he runs it no matter the movie. Why change something when it works. He's getting a bit long in the tooth but still pulls in the $$$..

This is a great opportunity to tell everyone to see the movies Edge of Tomorrow and Valkyrie. You will return to this thread and thank me.
Link Posted: 1/2/2016 9:08:23 PM EDT
i've actually been on a TC movie kick the last week or so--all the MIs, oblivion, EoT, and so on.

i don't think he's the most skilled thespian out there, but tropic thunder and magnolia really showed that he has good acting chops, and is more than just a personality.  i like how he makes movies--his inherently optimistic approach.

the guy may be a bit bonkers in some departments, but i'd have a beer with him.  if he's in a movie as an actor or a producer, i'll see it.

no.  he's one of my all-time favorite actors, but he plays variations of himself.  compare his range to gary oldman, for example, and you'll see the difference between a good actor and a great one.

show me a movie where he convincingly plays an effeminate lawyer who the viewer despises, and i'll accept that he has range.  until then, he's in the same category as sam elliott (although duvall is more talented).
