I wanna make sure we are talking about the same guy since Minority Report, like lots of movies, had several different writers in several different stages before it was a finalized screenplay. But thanks for contributing!

Books, yes. Films, no. The book author also wrote the basis for Total Recall and A Scanner Darkly (among a couple other film adaptations).

Anyway:



S'alright. Pretty much what you'd expect it to be, nothing less but nothing more either. Alice was kinda hot in that armor, though.

I'm not a fan of the older Alice concept. And that chick was hot and gave me a boner and Alice shouldn't give me a boner dammit that's wrong.

IT'S WRONG!!!

I don't think Cruise is a bad actor really, certainly not a great one but he does have charisma and personality that makes him pretty entertaining in his best films. I thought he was very good in Rain Man, Jerry Mcguire, Born on the Fourth of July and Minority Report. And he was pretty hilarious in Tropic Thunder.

I think people delight in calling him a terrible actor simply because he's a colossal assh*le.

I very rarely bring myself to call someone a bad actor, but he's one of them. I can't see that charisma and personality, just a mask that hides that there's nothing underneath. He's incredibly fake and superficial even in his better roles, maybe especially then (meaning the roles are good and some better actors would probably bring them depth and a real emotion instead of superficiality).

Whether he's an assh*le or not is not important to me. Russell Crowe is considered to be one and I think he's a very good actor.

There's one actor that people absolutely delight in calling him terrible, who's unfairly, universally singled out as the worst actor today - Keanu Reeves. And guess what, I was never one of those people. Sure, he's not a great one, can be very inadequate and clumsy sometimes. But he has something that Cruise doesn't have - even when he's terrible there's always an honesty and truthfulness at the core of his acting, some kind of childlike innocence. That makes him far more watchable for me than Cruise. That's when I can see the charisma instead of acting ability.

The point is - I can forgive 'woodiness' and clumsiness in acting, but I can't forgive fakeness.
