    I hate him as a person and how he carries himself on talk shows and what not, but damn his acting in WOTW was great. What an excellent performance. My attention was held the entire way through. What were your thoughts on the movie?

    movie was good, he wasn't that great. He doesnt even deserve to be on screen with dakota fanning, she's like 10 and already in 3 classes above him in terms of on screen presence. In every movie he's in he's always Tom Cruise playing (insert character here), he's never (insert character here). The last good performance he gave was in Taps.

    He's a great actor in all his movies, who gives a shit about his personal beliefs and personality. I'm a big fan of most of his movies, and WOTW was pretty good too.
    Look at Russell Crowe, he's a top notch jackass, but he's still in some good movies. Do you guys support sports teams that have players with odd beliefs?

    He's annoying the hell out of me, but I just saw Collateral the other day and damn, I was impressed. Jamie Foxx? Damn, that man can act.

    I hate him as well, never liked him...always thought he overacted in a lot of movies. Overall he is an above average actor, I'll give him that.

    Just about everybody, including the OP.
    People hate him because he has been acting strange and has odd beliefs.
     
  15. If you ever notice, "Cocktail", "Days Of Thunder" and "Top Gun" are all the same plot, but with different careers....

    I never cared for Tom Cruise, but SOME of the time he gets thrown really good scripts... most of what he does is the classic super-glam, over produced bullshit of hollywood. I think the only movie he ever did that I'm a big fan of was Interview with a Vampire, but Pitt far out performed Cruise imo...
