Tom Cruise has made some movies I enjoyed him in such as, “The Firm”, “Jerry Maguire”, “Magnolia”, “Tropic Thunder”, “War of the Worlds” and “Interview with the Vampire”. I know you probably thought I was going to say “Risky Business” and “Top Gun”. Nah- didn’t care so much for those.
Say what you want about him, I’ve always found him to be admirable regardless. He’s got one of the most unstoppable work ethics and still maintains this nurturing quality. You wouldn’t think that when you think of Tom Cruise, but pay no attention to what you’ve read in the tabloids or assumed, in real life he’s actually a nice guy.
He’s never better than when he disappears into a character driven piece the way he does in “Rock of Ages”. He stuns audiences and himself showcasing this extremely powerful voice. Yes, he sings and that is his voice. He’ll be celebrating his 50th birthday July 3rd and has never looked better. He is the poster boy for the 50 year old guy.
