    Agree and I think that is an underrated movie in general.

    The only thing I didn't like was the sort of hokey ending. Other than that I really enjoyed the movie. It will always have a special place in my memories. One of my best friends (who passed away), flirted and joked his way to nearly the front of a line that wrapped around the building on premiere weekend. LOL. We got there late but still had great seats. I thought it was going to be the start of an epic vampire franchise. Pffft.

    TC is arguably the greatest actor of our generation..

    From the quality of the movies he puts out and the massive entertainment value he ALWAYS puts out it really is quite remarkable.

    The guy just makes quality movies and lays it on the line all the time!!!

    So many good to great movies it would be hard to pick his best.

    I'd say he's the greatest movie star of our generation, but no way he's the best actor, IMO.

    I would probably agree, but as far as acting ability goes, I'd still put him in an upper tier. Not the best, but close enough.

    I would have a hard time naming more than a couple that I didn't like. Just off their p of my head in the last few years there are a bunch of awesome movies.

    Jack Reacher, awesome
    MI4, awesome
    Edge of tomorrow, freaking awesome!
    Even that dumb one with Morgan freeman and the Aliens, I would consider that one of my least favorites but sill a decent movie and way better than most of the terrible crap that comes out.

    I can totally be on board with that... However he is a damn good actor in his own right...

    I agree with that too. I wish he'd go out on a limb a little bit more though. He was great in dramatic roles like Rain Man, Collateral and Born On The 4th Of July and flat out fantastic as Frank TJ Mackey in Magnolia.

    I'd love to see Quentin Tarantino write something for him.

    Interesting. I would say because of the parts he has chosen maybe not. However, he has given some of the best performances in this generation IMO.

    anyone who's a Tom Cruise fan needs to go to Grantland and read their over the top awesome ridiculous coverage of Tom Cruise Week right now. It's just article after amazing article about pretty much every facet of the guy's career and life. Highly recommend the reading.
