Yeah, Jesse Eisenberg is playing the Allen character, so he's even more neurotic and annoying than usual.

Kirsten Stewart, charisma vacuum.

She can't act and he plays the same person in everything he's in. His Lex Luthor was the exact same person as his Mark Zuckerberg ffs

Tom Cruise as Reacher is probably one of the worst bits of casting in the history of movies. Ever.

People are really invested in Jack Reacher's height aren't they.

Uhh Jack is 6-5 in the book but Tom Cruise is only 5-7, controversial!

Why does it matter so much.

It's not even the height, it's the general aura or whatever word you want to use for it.

Like he's meant to be this large, sullen, brooding calculated killer.

Cruise almost comes across as a parody cheeky version or something. Like his MI character.

Tom Cruise is barely convincing in anything he's in

Ah Tom's alright. He gets a lot of stick, most (not all) of it is unfair imo. You always get your money's worth.

I don't think I've ever enjoyed one of his films tbh. Rainman maybe but it's not something you'd watch more than once

I like him for the most part. But not Reacher.

Some of his early stuff is especially great

Edge of Tomorrow was deadly I thought. I like Tom, although the new Reacher was shite enough!

The first Mission Impossible is a classic. The scene in the vault has been parodied so many times in the past 20 years it's easy to forget it's a masterclass in suspense.

I think Cruise is good but that first Jack Reacher film was utter shite.

I meant his Reacher was like a parody of his MI, not that his MI character was a parody.

Top Gun is probably my favourite Cruise movie. In fact, it's probably top 5 movies of all time ever

Not a big fan of cruise at all he can't contain his horrible smugness and it overpowers everything. It works for something as ott as top gun but for all the rest of his action films I spend my time being irritated by him

Risky business, top gun, born on the fourth of July, a few good men, the firm, interview with a vampire, Jerry maguire, collateral.

You didn't enjoy any of those?
