In defense of Tom Cruise

tom-cruise

With the latest Mission Impossible film out recently, I’ve been hearing a lot of grumbling about Mr Cruise again. It turns out there are lot of haters out there when it comes to Tom Cruise and I get that but seriously, it’s Tom ‘Fucking’ Cruise, the man makes some damn good movies and is the quintessential movie star, So instead of jumping on the band wagon I’m going to list of a few reasons why I am pro Tom.

The Movies

OK so let’s start this off with his movies, Tom makes some pretty damn good movies.

  • Taps
  • Risky Business
  • Legend
  • Top Gun
  • Cocktail
  • Rain Man
  • Days of Thunder
  • The Thin Red Line
  • Interview With A Vampire
  • The Firm
  • Magnolia
  • Eyes Wide Shut
  • Minority Report
  • The Last Samurai
  • Collateral
  • Tropic Thunder
  • Valkyrie
  • Rock of Ages
  • Oblivion
  • Edge of Tomorrow
  • Oh and the Mission Impossible FranchiseTom-tom-cruise-33693031-960-640

In making this list I just picked some of my favorite roles for him. Let’s face it the man has variety. Even I forgot about a few of these films and for some reason I only remember him as the big budget action star that he has become, by the way the man does a lot of his own stunts so we really can’t fault him there.

You might say a few of his roles are corny and cheesy but what about Eyes Wide Shut or Vanilla Sky and let’s not forget the Thin Red Line. You want funny well he can do that too, Rock of Ages, he made that film his own snatching up every scene he was in and Tropic Thunder was just ridiculous, it took me a long time to even realize it was him. From the artistic legend to the pretty emotional Valkyrie all the way through to the epic Edge of Tomorrow, Tom Cruise brings his charm and skill as an actor to bear and the public love him for it.

The Fans

This is one thing that I love about Tom as he really takes some time in person with his fans. I have had the opportunity to work quite a few red carpets since starting this website and most people are happy to sign autographs although some don’t bother and some sigh more than you’d expect. Tom, however, will go round as many people as he possibly can and sign all the autographs possible, he is known to show up hours before an event just to get to do this so yes say what you want about him but at least he does this.

The Absurd

Say what you want about the guy but he knows how to be crazy in the best possible ways.

You know what? Ignoring all the rumors, the odd outburst and the fact that a lot of people hate Scientology I am a fan of Tom Cruise and I’m happy to jump on a couch and yell it out.
