The difference is that only a very few of Cruise's movies are even decent. And, I would argue, those are decent DESPITE him, not because of him.

If by "excellent", you mean "horrible and overrated by some people who apparently don't know anything about acting", then I agree.

Tom Cruise is a nutter, but he's also a good actor. He just isn't Jack Reacher.

I get it, Lee Child wanted a payday, and Tom Cruise is a good way to get it. Too bad the fans of the books didn't get the movie they deserved.

Someone asked if you need to read the books in order. IMO, no. I jumped around a bit with the Reacher novels, and it didn't affect my ability to follow what was happening with the story or characters.

Tom Cruise =/= Jack Reacher.

Cruise is an excellent actor, you ladies are mixing up his religious beliefs and craziness with his acting ability. Cruise didn't stink it this movie, it just wasn't a great movie, and it was a bad casting choice. You can't tell Tom to really act big and burly in this scene, and imagine your fists are made of ice and brick.

Has tarantino tried to carry a movie with his acting tho? I thought his appearances were just for fun.

I agree with your list of bad actors, and I'd argue that Cruise EASILY belongs in that same group. Some of those are better actors than Cruise.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 30, 2012 3:33:24 PM PST
I agree with this. When I hear about Tom Cruise being a bad actor, I think about Magnolia. That was a great performance.

Well done Juanita, good list.

Keanu ? "I am an FBI Aye-jent" <Great acting !

I've recently seen him in Magnolia, Last Samurai, Collateral, and Tropic Thunder. His performance in both Magnolia and Collateral were, to me, Oscar worthy. To each his own, but to say he's a horrible actor is to much.

People I consider bad actors would be Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lopez, Ashton Kutcher, Quentin Tarantino (yes, he's acted), Brendan Frasier, Steven Segal, and Keanu Reeves.

Sure! There are worst "actors" out there but people like, for example, Tom Green, Dane Cook and Kim Kardashian should not be considered actors.

You must not have seen him in any films.

who cares about acting when it comes to an action movie, I don't. Thats why the Expendables is so good. I just want to see some cool stuff and turn my brain off for a bit.

"Neeson is already taken"

I see what you did there.

dwayne johnson...hes not amazing but i have enjoyed most of his roles

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2012 7:07:31 PM PST
Not many.

Liam Neeson is 6 foot 4. Joe Manganiello is 6 foot 5, I don't even know if he is that good of an actor.
