Saw the Jack Reacher movie this afternoon.

It's very good.

I've read every Jack Reacher novel. I pre-order them in hardback so I get them the day they come out. I love the series, and no, I couldn't see Tom Cruise playing Jack Reacher.

Having said that, the movie is still very good. It succeeds in spite of Tom Cruise, rather than because of him, but it was way better than I thought it was going to be.

If you're a fan of the books, the movie is definitely worth seeing.

He's still short, but I think they hired a lot of short actors to play opposite him.

I hear you. I almost made the same decision myself. Then I saw that it had an 86% rating on Rotten Tomatoes so I decided to take a chance. I'm glad I did.

IDIOT


Dude is pretty much the most consistent actor in Hollywood who chooses the best scripts for a Hollywood box office and critical success.

Just cause he jumps on Oprah's couch, might be gay, or believes in Xenu you'd deny yourself watching some of the most entertaining movies of the past 20 years???

IDIOT.

I don't understand this at all. He isn't a bad actor at all, and has even had a couple stellar performances in his career. Why would you avoid one of his movies?

Because I am not a Cruise fan. The only two movies of his I hold in high regard are Top Gun (Great) and The Last Samurai (Good). Other then that I have no interest in him.

You must not watch a shite load of movies, because there are a ton of shite bags in Hollywood.

This has nothing to do with it but whatever floats your boat.

Dude, Last Samurai is a pile of shite

You forgot Minority Report and Collateral, 2 of his best movies, and 2 of the best of the 2000s

I'm definitely going to see it. I'm just going to tell myself that he's 6'5" and doing a lot of crouching.

Last Samurai is phenomenal.

Most of Cruise's movies are. I don't get the hate.

Cruise is the bad guy in Collateral and does a great job

Minority Report's story is just flawless, it's not really Cruise-centric
