I just read this quote from Lee Child in the Post Gazette about Tom Cruise as Jack Reacher -- "Cruise, at his core, is a character actor in the most literal sense. He really gets into a role. He understood Jack Reacher. He projected his vibe. But the only real answer to that is, go see the movie. I guarantee you will come out thinking, 'What was I worried about?'"
I hope you're right Mr. Child!! I really enjoy the Jack Reacher series of books and Tom Cruise is not who I would have picked but I have appreciated his talent in other movies so I'll hope for the best.
Premiere in Pittsburgh 12/15, opens nationwide 12/21.
Would love to win a pair of tickets to the premiere...imagine me on the red carpet with Tom Cruise!
I know, BIG imagination! More likely me rolling up the red carpet after Tom Cruise walked it :)
I enjoy movies in general, recently saw Skyfall and Flight -- highly recommend both! I have quite a long 'want to see' list right now.--
Lincoln - a different view of a man we all know
Argo - a time in history I lived
Silver Linings Playbook -- Bradley Cooper when he's not hungover in Vegas or wherever
Anna Karenina-- like period pieces
Life of Pi -- special effects are critically acclaimed. One of the reasons, I loved Avatar.
The Sessions -- will make me cry and laugh
Taken 2 -- kind of iffy on #2 but like Liam Neeson
Killing Them Softly -- enjoy Brad Pitt, wish he wasn't always so ornery :) Ray Liotta is a fave too
Any Day Now -- this will make me mad, I'm sure
Playing For Keeps -- I know but I love these kind of funny/sincere movies Love Rules!
