Tom Cruise

Some people will now forever remember Tom Cruise from those Scientology vids, but I choose to cement my memory in the not-so-fictional version from Magnolia. Your moment of nostalgic zen: Lying Under Pressure and Respect The Cock.


I'll be cementing my memories from his role in The Outsiders.

"Ain't nobody gonna call the fuzz in this neighborhood! Cause they know better!"

Indeed, nothing gold can stay.

i remember at the time thinking "i bet he's really like this." little did we know. magnolia is an excellent movie. i love julianne moore's drugstore freakout too, she's so completely messed up, yet totally hot.

Magnolia actually got pretty tepid reviews. It was perceived as "trying too much," and, I suppose, it did. But I loved it for that. It's also why I liked Southland Tales this year.

Wow, those are dead ringers for the Scientology video.

That was his best, um, performance.
