At the movies - From the couch

Law Abiding Citizen ?


That is so so. Collateral is better, Tom Cruise is well cast as the stone dead killer.




terribly overrated. a watch once and never again movie for mine.

Jamie Fox sure, but Tom Cruise has made many great films.

Magnolia is head and shoulders above all else.

magnolia is like birdman, critic wank.

I loved Django - purely for Christoph Waltz and Leo.

On another note, 1917 is available for rent on Foxtel. That’s my Friday movie set.

And Tom’s performance?

Everyone is great in that movie.
I don’t know what more people could want from a movie.

Even John C Reilly is good in that movie!

Edit: movie.


I enjoyed it also.

Barnz taste in movies almost rivals Noonans

I agree with Barnz. Especially when it comes to Birdman.

Plenty of great Cruise films though:

Rain Man
Risky Business
Eyes Wide Shut

Birdman and Magnolia are a wank but Eyes Wide Shut…now there’s a movie.

I’m not sure why Magnolia keeps getting compared to Birdman. Although I enjoyed some of the technical aspects of Birdman, it is most definitely a wank. But Magnolia actually has a story and is incredible on many levels.

Yep. It’s a masterpiece and actually at its heart a very simple tale of jealousy and ego in a relationship.

Magnolia has some very effective moments but the sum of the parts don’t work for me.

I enjoyed jack reacher, minority report american made, even edge of tomorrow.

Hes had some terrific cameos as well.

Thank you for reminding me.
I think Tropic Thunder is my favourite Cruise role.


He was the best part of that movie


I thought he did a good job in War of the Worlds.

Cruise is actually a really good actor imo. Has done some really enjoyable films

Edge of tomorrow

Few good men



I honestly think the whole barmy whack job thing is largely Scientology’s making.
