@SheCallsMeCrushDaddy Really?
I don't know much about him but he seems OK ;)

🙋🏻‍♀️ . He’s a good actor , but a complete flake as a human being .
@TexChik Goal flake? What's that?
TexChik · F
@UnderLockDown crazy phone typo! 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️

@TexChik I am hearing that. 👍

People knock Eyes wide shut but I actually rather like that one !
Kubrick at his mystical best and two of the worst actors in the leading roles !
Can you imagine any other two actors in those roles ? Not sure I can but it brought out the best in them.

Collateral was a decent movie.
Tropic thunder ? Brilliant make up and totally against type
@Picklebobble2 Les Grossman should have gotten his own movie. That character was a hoot.

@Picklebobble2 Another one for me to check out :)

I enjoy him as an actor
That's where it stops.

@Nimbus Well... I think he's in more then "reasonably" good films though.

Rainman (1988)
A Few Good Man (1992)
Eyes Wide Shut (1999)
Jerry Maguire (1996)
The Last Samurai (2003)
Minority Report (2002)

... are pretty solid movies imo.

And then there is a bunch, like his "Mission Impossible" and "Jack Reacher" stuff. Or "Top Gun". Which I would consider less good as a movie, but still a good performance by him and imo entertaining action flicks. Which is kinda what that genre aims for.

And then there are a bunch of movies that imo just suck... but his performance is still on point. The most prominent example, is "Tropic Thunder", which I think is a bad movie. But Tom Cruise is just really good in that one. He's an actor that has the possibility too give a bad script a bit more flair. And I think that makes you a good actor. If you go over his list, you'll find more movies like that, where Cruise is just solid but the movie isn't.

@Kwek00 Seems like he's made more that I have thought of :)
I will check them out 👍

@Nimbus If you never checked out his performance in Tropic Thunder... then maybe you need to start there. It's hillarious. Just don't watch the entire movie. Also check out "Robert Downey jr" in that one. Those two are the only reason to watch that movie.

I'm pretty anti- scientology, so I can't be a fan while he's supporting that phony church.
i watched Valkerie twice.
....just to watch tom cruise get shot twice 😇

@Nimbus 😆my grandma always said my younger brother look like him nimby when my brother was in his early twenties in the early nineties
Nimbus · M
@smiler2012 Is that a compliment? ;)
smiler2012 · 56-60
@Nimbus yes he did actually have a slight resemblence

I like Born on the Fourth of July. He played a slightly different character for a change. Far and Away where he was supposed to be Irish was a little cringy.
Nimbus · M
@JimboSaturn I'll check that one out 👍
Bumbles · 51-55, M
I sort of admire his ambition and work ethic, but can’t say I’m a fan. I wonder if he can do dramatic acting against type. I’d like to see that.
Nimbus · M
@Bumbles I'd like to see that too.
Synyster · 51-55, M
Top Gun and Risky Business are the only movies I liked, that's where it ends.
Nimbus · M
@Synyster Yea, hit & miss.
Synyster · 51-55, M
@Nimbus Absolutely.
wildbill83 · 36-40, M
he's like Samuel Jackson, a good actor, but a complete douchbag irl...
robertsnj · 51-55, M
His type-cast as an action hero feels counter-intuitive. He is a little man that wouldn't be able to scrap with most 8th graders. When he plays in romcom's and drama's that feels like it is a good fit for him but action here it just isn't believable.

As far as person, gonna skip that question and @Nimbus are you asking because you are scientologists? Just curious.
Nimbus · M
@BritishFailedAesthetic Not too keen then? ;)
@Nimbus Not mad on him!
exexec · 61-69, C
Nope, and whoever cast him as Reacher should have their head examined or removed.

So his spirituality is a little wacky? He is an awesome actor, and I adore his movies.
