Jack Reacher

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
Jack Reacher 
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!

  1. I've read the Jack Reacher books too. I picture someone like Matt Damon or Chris Hemsworth to be Jack. Not Tom Cruise. He has a huge roll to fill! I saw Skyfall and liked it a lot. Hubby and I are going to see Lincoln today, if time permits.
    Have a great day!


How nice of you to leave a comment :)
