We desperately tried with this week’s episode to not do the whole “Tom Cruise is the last great movie star” thing, and we kind of(?) accomplished that. I mean, we make an argument that he’s a great movie star, but we don’t actually argue that he’s the final entry in a dying breed, so that’s about halfway there, right?
How did we wind up going down this particular road?
Well, it all started because Cameron Crowe’s “Vanilla Sky” got a new blu-ray release. For those of you who don’t remember, “Vanilla Sky” is the Tom Cruise one where… and that’s how we get to talking about Tom Cruise. The thing about almost every movie with Tom Cruise is that you describe them as “the Tom Cruise one where…” and move on from there. It’s incredible and it says something amazing about him that such a description generally works.
