I like Tom Cruise too.

He's made some dodgy career decisions and is clearly a prick as a person but he's great in Rain Man, Color of Money and Collateral. I can definitely understand why people take a real dislike to him, though.

Ugh. I thought Collateral was terrible.

His best performance was probably Born on the 4th of July.

Wow, I'm really surprised you don't like Collateral.

Born on the 4th of July is a good call though. Not one of my favourites but definitely a good performance.

EWS is a very cool movie. I think if I had seen it before I was married for years I would not have understood it.

Because EWS is up there with those others, not minor/failed Kubrik.

I will never understand the hate for Cruise. Dude is a brilliant actor, and EWS proves it.

Tom Cruise couldn't act his way out of paper bag. That's my own personal opinion that is obviously shared by half the world while the other half loves him. He must be doing something right to make 20 million a movie. I think he's best in movies like The Outsiders, Magnolia, and Tropic Thunder where he doesn't have to carry the movie.

I think Eyes Wide Shut is pretty bad (and I usually love Kubrick). I thought it was very awkward and boring.

HEY WAIT A MINUTE, I said I absolutely loved Eyes Wide Shut when I started to post here and everyone told me it was one of the worst movies they had ever seen! (Actually I think it was atsonicpark that said that). Hmmm... I see people have came round to it's brilliance I suppose!

I have watched it once, and did not like or dislike it, but it has stuck in my head, and it affected me, and that is a success in my eyes. I will watch it again

Yeah that's what I think about a lot of movies... it's the getting stuck in my head that makes me title it a great movie in retrospect.

I personally think Eyes Wide Shut is a really cool movie. What makes it special to me is some titties.... nah, jk, but it's really cool because it's one of the slowest movies I've ever seen. Every scene, all the dialogue, the whole speed of the movie is unnaturally slow. The director did a good job of sticking to the pace of the film and selling the actors on the pace of it (yes, the horrible man that is Tom Cruise included). It has such a rich, dark, grimy feel to it's that's not easily achieved. The whole film feels thick. The lighting and sound are special too. In all, the story is borderline cheesy, but it the film and acting is rich enough to draw you in to where it doesn't really matter.

I think a part of it's appeal is the whole 'cult' aspect of the storyline, since I have a huge interest in cults.
