If we put his looks aside, I think he is as weird as Michael Jackson :)

This is the first thing you said in the past 48 houres that I agree with ya Two. The things people tolerate because of a pretty face.

Obligatory Southpark:

Stan's Das: why is Tom Cruise in the closet?
Stan: err, i told him that the napoleon dynamite guy is a better actor than he is.

I dont like tom cruise that much, sure he is good looking but that smug face is just eerrgghhhh...but i have to say, he is a good actor, M:I 2 - Last samurai- war of the worlds sucked more than the CN tower.
Minority Report- Vanilla sky were great performances.
Hasnt anyone noticed how in his films, the poster features only him & no one else,he is the main grand attraction, with the exception of war of the worlds poster & another film i cant remember now...

I feel as if i was drunk writing the last post...hell.
Almost every tom cruise film poster has his face either facing the viewer or sideways, like recently.
films face looking ahead & solo:

-Risky Business
-The Firm
-Days of Thunder
-Born on the Fourth of July
-Jerry macguire
-Interview with the Vampire
-Mission Impossible 1, 2
-The Last Samurai
-Minority Report
-Vanilla Sky

Films appearing alongisde others

-Top Gun (Kelly mcGuinnes)
-Rain man (Dustin hoffman: heavy weight)
-The Colour of Money ( Paul Newman: Damn Heavy weight)
-A few Good Men (Jack Nicholson: heavy weight extra)
-Far & Away (nicole kidman:they were an Item then)
-Eyes Wide Shut (Nicole again)
So its 6 against 13.
what do you folks think?? I am not in favour of him, but i do say my best tom cruise films, & performances were in order
2-Vanilla Sky
3-Interview with the Vampire
4-Minority Report
I guess i like him more when he is a villain.I forgot to mention that Collateral rocked, sorry guys bout this cruise trivia, you can all curse me now!

I feel bad for the rock. I mean, he's a wrestler, what does he know about acting, so why lump him in with seasonal actors like cruise.

I never really cared if Cruise was "good looking" or not. Tom Henks is average looking and has become a legend in his time.
I do know that I unfortunately was watching Oprah at 12am and witnessed that fruitcake jumping on the couch and being effeminate and was like "what the H is wrong with this dude and his fruitcake girlfriend?"

I've never been a Tom Cruise fan -always thought he was overrated. But after seeing Born on the 4th of July had to give him his due that he cab act. His place as a movie star is already well cemented.

Jokerman -
Vanilla Sky was the weirdest/oddest movie.

War of the Worlds stunk and Cruise and the kids in the movie and the writing all sucked big time.

Risky Business is still a classic to me if nothing else bcs of the subway scense and it reminds me of the 80's and High School.

Vanilla was simply a thriller, sci-fi, drama love triangle tragedy...it was weird but not in a bad sense.
War of the worlds sucked i think because the idea that the aliens already were there didnt work. I mean, why would the aliens hide their machinery deep in the earth so they can come later & kill the humans whne they can kill humans in their infancy & enslave them? & the concept that they got into their machines via electrical storms was right down idiotic, anyone seen the comedy film BOWFINGER where a screenwriter talks about his latest play titled CHUBBY RAIN, cos aliens invade earth by landing with the raindrops so they look fat & chubby, i mean spielber didnt work this one out at all.

Scorekeeper, I've never thought that I'd agree with you on anything, but you're absolutely right Tom H"e"nks is one of the greatest. Tom cruise is just a pretty boy who's never going learn how to act no matter how hard he tries or how hard he presses his teeth or try to pop a vein out of his forehead, but to his credit, a lot of his movies are great, specially Vanilla Sky and Eyes wide shut and Collateral. Last Samurai was the worst, did anybody notice that the stupid director forgot to put a single woman in the entire village except the one he fell in love with?
I'm also wondering couldn't he have found his way with someone prettier than the Katie Holmes, Charlize Theron or Ashly Judd maybe?

So now that tom's been dropped from his label, and he's supposedly starting his own... think we'll start seeing movies where he plays L. Ron Hubbard, cruisading against Body Thetans? lol
