Movie: American Made

I was checking out reviews:

[www.rottentomatoes.com]

And in the process found this article:

"Two Dead on a Tom Cruise Movie Shoot"

[www.hollywoodreporter.com]

I must have missed this plane accident/crash in the news, I had no idea it happened.

I know some of you folks refuse to watch a Tom Cruise movie because of the whole Scientology 'thing' but I plan on checking it out next week regardless. I realize it plays fast and loose with the facts but it still looks like something that I'd find interesting. A classic 'popcorn film', easy on the fake butter please...

....the box office #s for Thursday came out and another dud......it made even less than 'The Mummy'......so audiences stayed away......


......the critics have given it good reviews but audiences just were not interested......see below.....



.......Tom Cruise’s latest movie American Made made $960,000 last night in previews at 2,455 theaters, one of his lowest Thursday nights in recent history.

Just to look: Paramount’s Jack Reacher: Never Go Back last fall made $1.33 million at 2,850 on its Thursday (opening day $8.8M, $22.8M weekend), American Made director Doug Liman’s Edge of Tomorrow made $1.8M and Oblivion hooked $1.1M in midnight shows. Heck, even Cruise’s disaster The Mummy did better at $2.66M in June.

American Made boasts fantastic reviews at 86% certified fresh — higher than The Mummy (16% Rotten) and Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (37% Rotten) — but it’s only expected to bring in a three-day that’s in the mid to high teens, a figure that’s around such recent Cruise pics as Rock of Ages (a bomb for him at $14.4M domestic opening, $75M cost and $59.4M global take) and Jack Reacher, which benefited from 2012 holiday play ($15.2M opening, $80M domestic, $218.3M global, $60M production cost)............

Just means it's Risky Business funding a Tom Cruise movie...

The only TC movie I'll watch is Top Gun. For the volleyball scene, of course...plus I think they lowered the net height.

I liked that he took on the Jack Reacher character and did a pretty good job. The funny thing is that Jack Reacher, in the books, is 6' 6" tall and 220 lbs!

Scientology is part of it, but the thing with Cruise is he ALWAYS plays the same guy in every movie he's in. Namely: Tom Cruise. Arrogant, cocky, jerk. One note actor. He's the same guy in Top Gun, Rain Man, Jerry Maguire, Mission Impossible, ad nauseum. Even though he was that guy in Minority Report, it was a good solid sci fi movie despite him.

Oblivion was good.

My favorite Tom C. movie is still Collateral:

Cruise makes for a top-notch hired killer...
