So Tom Cruise hasn’t had a flop in 30 years. Okay, 29.
Like, we’re talking about Legend. Which, if you ask me, didn’t deserve to be a flop. (Also, I don’t know why “Rock of Ages” doesn’t really count as a flop but, hey. Though Wikipedia points out that the reviews of that flop specifically mention Tom Cruise as the best part of the film.)
And I’m looking at the list of films and thinking “holy cow, I even enjoyed most of those.” The Mission Impossibles, Minority Report, Jack Reacher, Oblivion, Edge of Tomorrow… dang. The guy who decides which scripts make it to Tom Cruise’s desk doesn’t get paid enough.
Which makes me figure that I’ll probably end up seeing Rogue Nation and boggling at how, once again, I can’t believe that Tom Cruise is now doing what Schwarzenegger and Stallone were doing in the 80’s except, this time, he’s doing it with halfway decent storylines.
So… what are you reading and/or watching?
