Re: Iron Man Teaser Up!

Umm what do you mean he makes only one movie a year, could that be because of the amount he makes, heck wasnt it not too long ago that his main employers were complaing about his salary

Re: Iron Man Teaser Up!

While he is a movie super star, he's not a good actor. We all know it. He just delivers the lines, smiles that idiot smile, and cashes in the money. Tom Cruise isn't a smart ***. He plays a better charismatic jock/loner. This movie is perfect for RDJ because his whole career is based off of being the comic relief that you fear is going to go psychotic if he mixes his "meds" right that morning.

To get the really big laughs the star of this movie needs to have a bloated sense of his own talent and ability, to play the role completely oblivious to the absurdity. Robert Downey Jr. is far too snarkey to carry it off. He'll be trying to be funny, which will ruin most of the best jokes.

Re: Iron Man Teaser Up!

Dislike the man and/or the actor as much as you want, but he brings in the big bucks. Calling him "Bomb Cruise" isn't accurate or funny.

I understand that it is cool to hate Tom Cruise nowadays, but once again, if you do not show him respect as an actor, you are only showing what a poor judge of talent you are. Tom Cruise is not only a good actor, he's a great one. Unecessary

Oh my, you must be right! The lone franchise is Tom Cruise's resume outshines every other movie. All 3 of those MI's, ey? In order, starting from 1999; Eyes Wide Shut, Magnolia, MI2, Vanilla Sky, Minority Report, The Last Samurai, War of the Worlds, MI3, Lions for Lambs. EDIT. Outside of the 2 MI's, which were good movies, and War of the Worlds, what exactly is your beef? EDIT

You're right. You forgot to mention a movie that was released over 20 years ago, which was well received for what it was. Good for you, ol' chap!

Actually, that wasn't even Cruise in Magnolia. That was P.T. Anderson wearing a Cruise mask. That's just how good he is.

Perhaps they should have hired you, Mr. Fahrenheit?

Why do you always resort to personal attacks when people dont agree with you? Are you a relative of Cruise', do you work for his PR team? I just dont get why you get worked up about trivial things

No, it is because he has been wise with his choices in the past, and doesn't need to be working 5 movies a week a la your boy, T-Howard. He makes so much money because he is a smart businessman, not only acting in, but producing his movies as well, and because people pay to see him in the theatres. It's that simple.

The only thing unnecessary here, hbwoy, is your editing of harmless words, as usual. Get a grip.

You called him one of the best actors in the world. You praised him endlessly. Why the sudden change of heart?

Yeah, your little jabs at ehmunro's sexuality is definitely unnecessary. Its not like this is the first time you have gone the personal attack route after someone disagrees with you

Prior to this thread, have you ever seen me talk about Terrence Howard. I think Clooney is a pretty good actor, does that mean he is one of my favs?

Usually when you call someone one of the best actors in the world, and praises them multiple times over, it means you like them. Who knows, though. I may be wrong!
