^ whoops. The movie I was trying to watch and getting bored with was actually Mr. Nobody. I downloaded Moon at the same time and just never got around to watching it. I watched it finally. It was okay. Also not great or anything. But more entertaining than Mr. Nobody.

I was doing much better on this than I do on most of these filmography quizzes but then when time ran out I saw that I should have gotten way more than I did... I think there are only 3 or 4 movies I never heard of before as opposed to most other actors where it's often between 40 and 70% of their resume. Couldn't for the life of me remember names for Rock of Ages and Vanilla Sky... can't believe I forgot Rain Man, Interview, A Few Good Men, Last Samurai, etc... I only got Austin Powers because of the clue that he was playing himself, I doubt that would have popped into my head otherwise.

Fun fact. Before his latest movie, Tom Cruise's last 3 characters were "Jack", "Jack Reacher" and "Stacie Jaxx".

After being accused by film critics of being on "Cruise" control through most of the 80s and 90s- repeatedly playing the same character, he has proven that he's a "Jack" of all trades.

Plattitude, that's just nuts. The last two MI movies haven't just passed the low bar of being the best MI movies but are actually among Cruise's best movies period.

LOVE "Minority Report".

One thing I like about Cruise, is when a scene calls for his character to run, the man MOVES! The only other actor I recall off the top of my head that actually blazed when the cameras rolled was Stallone in "Rocky", when he was running with the kids and then turned on the jets.

He runs with the same level of intensity with which he does all other things.

Minority Report was okay IMO but I found it irritating in how every twist was so painfully blatantly telegraphed from 10 years away. And then explained. And reexplained. I felt like they were underestimating their audience. Or maybe I've got too high an opinion of the sort of people who like Tom Cruise. One or the other.

One of my favourite actors. My favourite of these would be "A few Good Men' ..... with Jack Nicholson, Demi Moore, Kevin Bacon, Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Pollack all playing great parts in a good story.

People tried real hard not to like Tom Cruise for a few years in the middle of the 2000's...but his movies are just too good, so everyone gave up. I kinda prefer it the way it is now, where we can all agree that he seems bonkers but we're not going to act like we don't want to watch Edge of Tomorrow for the seventh time.

eh... he's had a few stinkers. All the Mission Impossible movies after the first one were pretty terrible. The Mummy remake was a turd. I just saw American Made and while it was okay... it's the sort of movie I will never watch again and in 5 or 6 years won't be able to recall if I saw it or not. Minority Report was obnoxious in how it underestimated its audience. and... before Rain Man he had as many misses as hits.

but overall... strong resume. Still... can we dislike him as a person? He's clearly nuts.

Oh, there are for sure some bad movies here. I was commenting more generally that he is in a lot of great movies. I just find it amusing that there was this "We're finished with Tom Cruise!" movement for a moment...and then everyone decided that giving up his movies was hard, so we're just not going to do it.

It's only been a year and as I forecast, I already forgot that American Made existed. :) That one, Valkyrie, and Edge of Tomorrow were among my "d'oh!"-can't-believe-I-missed-thems this time around. The ones I've never guessed right include Taps, Lions for Lambs, and Endless Love.
