Same, I loved that movie even if Jamie Fox is a racist idiot and Cruse is a whack job.

Top Gun and Mission Impossible I think were his best.

Oh, and Jack Reacher too.

#5 Posted by sammyjenkis898 (28122 posts) -

Eyes Wide Shut.

#6 Posted by thegerg (15458 posts) -

Top Gun

#7 Posted by uninspiredcup (8987 posts) -

Mission Impossible 2. Mainly because of the Woo.

I'm big fan of John Woo :)

Ridley Scott's Legend was really cool.

Edge of Tomorrow is my favorite at the moment.

And I agree with TC, Collateral was pretty awesome.

The guy has done lots of good movies.

Collateral.....One of my favorite films of all time.

Edge of tomorrow was also fantastic

Hmmm....I haven't really seen many movies with him to be honest. Probably Vanilla Sky. Or Last Samurai...

- A Few Good Men

- Mission: Impossible

- Minority Report

- War Of The Worlds

He hasn't been in that many films, I have noticed.

It's a tie between Minority Report and Mission Impossible; with Vanilla Sky coming in second.

I forgot about Vanilla Sky...loved it.

Collateral, Jerry Maguire, Far and Away, Days of Thunder, Top Gun....lots of good movies.

Top Gun 2 has been confirmed.

Born on the Forth of July and Collateral

#17 Posted by VaguelyTagged (10185 posts) -

Collateral by far, followed by Eyes Wide Shut. i quite dislike him as an action actor.

#18 Edited by xdude85 (4430 posts) -

Rain Man, Born on the Fourth of July, Vanilla Sky, and Magnolia are my favorites.

#19 Posted by ferrari2001 (17002 posts) -

He has so many good films it's hard to choose. I loved Edge of Tomorrow, Jack Reacher, Mission Impossible and Minority Report are also very good.

#20 Posted by zeroyaoi (1934 posts) -

I need to watch Vanilla Sky again.

What about the firm? You guys hate it that much. :P

#21 Posted by sSubZerOo (43216 posts) -

Tom Cruise maybe loony, but the man knows how to run his career and act.. I loved Minority Report, Edge of Tomorrow, and Oblivion for great sci-fi action flicks.. Other great flicks that come to mind include Legend, A Few Good Men, Risky Business, Collateral, and Interview with the Vampire.

#22 Posted by bobaban (10560 posts) -

Valkyrie

#23 Edited by jun_aka_pekto (16381 posts) -

Risky Business.

"Sometimes you gotta say, WTF."

#24 Edited by hippiesanta (9892 posts) -

I hate tom cruise running style .... and why the f he always have that monotone dash/run in almost all his movies??

#25 Posted by The_Last_Ride (72408 posts) -

Valkyrie and Top Gun imho. Both excellent movies with great supporting cast. His german wasn't bad either in the movie either

A Few Good Men

Interview with a Vampire and Rain Man

Agreed. MI1 was pretty badly written, MI2 was over-the-top but fun, MI3 was pretty mediocre, but MI4 helped bring it back.

Others include:

Edge of Tomorrow (I generally give crap to people who just pick the most recent example, but this was actually a very solid movie)
Collateral (I digg Michael Mann and Jaime Fox did a good job)
Eyes Wide Shut
Jack Reacher
Interview with a Vampire (Anne Rice fruitiness but a decent flic overall)

I really wish they'd stop putting Tom Cruise in movies that I want to see, because he really annoys the shit of out me but I tolerate him because he manages to be in some interesting flics.

Jerry Mcguire and Tropic Thunder. Not really a fan of Tom.

#32 Posted by Iszdope (10150 posts) -

Rain Man.

#33 Posted by PS4hasNOgames (1771 posts) -

Risky Business remains his best movie. He's actually a very good actor, people like to make fun of him because he's weird, but he's a talented actor.

Also, Jerry Mcguire

#34 Posted by sukraj (23060 posts) -

i dont think he is weird.
