I think it was called knight and day or something like that. It was totally formula and impossibly simple minded.
Are all Tom Cruise movies this type of rubbish? He never really did anything convincingly throughout the entire film. The entire story seemed like an aggrandizement of his personal ego.
I think this guy is certifiably crazy.
OP, are you ayb?
That movie is hilariously over-the-top.
Has Tom Cruise made a film, other than "Risky Business," that is generally considered a true classic?
R3 I thought Rain Man was a good movie. In fact, it's the only TC movie I like. Everything else sucks.
R3, Top Gun had him as a character that I think he's been trying to play ever since. He has become a caricature of that role and so has every role he's played since.
"Vanilla Sky" and "Eyes Wide Shut" are true classics. Regard for them will only grow. "Eyes Wide Shut" especially, because it revealed the hidden truth about the way the world really works and gives an insight to those hidden people who control the planet, an always have. Stanley Kubrick paid the ultimate price, but h revealed the ultimate truth.
Oh, bless your heart, R6.
YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!
Eyes Wide Shut will be his one movie that survives.
Though I did enjoy Rain Man, Minority Report, and the original Mission Impossible.
His worst performance is in The Last Samurai. The film could have been good, but he really can't do period pieces. His acting is too contemporary. Never saw Knight and Day.
You're high, aren't you OP?
I like Magnolia.
Often I wonder if that character was just a version of himself - except for pussy.
Nah, his best work was, "Cocktail".
He was robbed of an Academy Award on that one.
I'm surprised that no one has mentioned, Born On the 5th of July. He was nominated for that sweaty piece of trash.
He's never won an oscar right?
I've never gotten a gay vibe from this long in tooth celebrity. In this particular film I couldn't help wonder where they found all the short actors to play the other roles. I think Tom was standing on a box when he kissed Cameron Diaz. By the way, that Cameron lady is looking worn out and put to bed wet.
Cameron looks like Diane Carroll's sister.
Can I mention something that has always been on my mind?
When Cruise takes his shirt off, doesn't it always look like he is missing a vertebrae or two? And his chest looks oddly deformed in someway, just like poor Joquin Phoenix.
Am I imagining this?
I hate to admit this, but I enjoy his performances. I never thought he was hot stuff so when the cult thing came out I wrote him off entirely. But, when I come across a movie of his on cable I start watching. He's good. Nuts, but good. He can come across as unlikeable and arrogant onscreen, but definitely compelling. I also have to admit I like Gwyneth Paltrow's performances even though her real life personality is extremely off putting.
Tl;dr I support the careers of jerks.
Penis! Big fucking erect penis, Mom!
Thanks R7 I hated "Eyes Wide Shut" at first. Years later, I had started to read about it more and had begun to learn how much of daily life was shaped by these conspiracies all around us. I watched it again and appreciated it fully. The blu-ray copy I have is the favorite movie in my collection.
"Vanilla Sky" was, thankfully, an immediate hit. Even though it has layers upon layers and is best appreciated after reading about it.
I so wish I saved the front cover of the Vanity Fair issue with Tom Cruise shirtless to promote "Vanilla Sky." To some reason I give him a "pass" on his strident attempts to hide his sexuality. There's something unreal about him anyway.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
