Tom Cruise Movies
I don't remember seeing a single Tom Cruise thread since I discovered these boards in 2014. So when I searched the boards to see if there were some
already made I was surprised to see 1,450 Tom Cruise threads. LOL.
Anyways... you are probably wondering why I made this thread in the "Military Projects" section. Answer is that Tom Cruise has some of the closest
ties to the U.S. military out of any actor. Sure, you got folks like Clint Eastwood, Jesse Ventura and Ben Affleck who are all pretty close to the
U.S. military both in their lives and their careers, but I think that Tom Cruise is probably the deepest when it comes to being close with the U.S.
With that being said I was wondering if anyone else thinks that perhaps some of Tom Cruise's movies were directly issued and written by military
project coordinators. What I mean is... obviously some of his movies are straight up U.S. military promotional vehicles to get people to join, but
usually one would think that it was just Hollywood people who made it all come together. I thought that maybe some of his movies were secretly drawn
up by the U.S. military but publicly they let on like it was all the work of your average Hollywood cast and crew. Am I making sense here? I might not
be getting my point across.
I want to also use this thread to say how much of a fan of Tom Cruise movies I am. I'm not obsessed or anything and I probably haven't watched even
half of the movies he made, but here's a reminiscence from a casual Tom Cruise fan who remembers this ultrastar actor on the big screen pretty much
all my life.
My earliest Tom Cruise memory is of course "Top Gun" a long time ago in the 1980s. I looked at the Tom Cruise career filmography at his personal
website (tomcruise.com) to see what I might've forgotten and it shows the old classic movie "Legend" to his credit. I don't remember him in that movie
but I do remember that movie, vaguely. Then there was "Interview With The Vampire" in the mid1990s, huge hit. Everyone I knew saw that movie and loved
it. Then there was "Mission:Impossible". Thing is, I missed seeing it but the advertisement for it was all over the place. I finally saw that one
years later. Then we got the 2000s, when I saw a lot of his movies. "Minority Report", "The Last Samurai", "Collateral", one of my favorites "War of
the Worlds", and then... I missed a lot of his movies until I went and saw "Oblivion" alone a few years ago. I'm not accustomed to going to movies
alone, but it was an awesome movie and it blew my mind. So, when I look at all those Tom Cruise movies I watched over my lifetime I can say few actors
have filmed so many great movies of such high quality. I look forward to seeing "Mission:Impossible 6" and the "Mummy" soon.
Feel free to comment any thing Tom Cruise and anything about the U.S. military ties to a select group of actors. I am interested in reading your
