Tom Cruise can stand on a box out of the shot. That's the magic of cinema.

The "Earth" without "art" is just... "Eh"

IMHO, his best movie to date is "Taps."
He should have quit while he was ahead.

Definitely not who I thought of for Reacher. Maybe they cast actors who are 5'8" and shorter for the supporting roles. That would at least make him appear to be normal size.

That really bums me out.
