I thought Cruise was perfectly cast, its the only time he's played a total a-hole and he was great at it. Love seeing Magnolia on this list, tho. The tension build and builds and then you get singing and frogs. Really great.

I agree, it really is a role thats perfect for him as he can be himself and not try act.

I think at this point you realize I think he is a douche.

Well, let's just say he's not the reason I would see a movie. I guess we are the only ones, though, since he remains the biggest box office draw in all film and has never had a film flop. In Hollywood, those words are pure gold. I thought he was fine in a Oblivion and I thought he was very good in War of the Worlds, but when he turns on that smiling confidence I find him very unpleasant to watch.

I am also deeply biased against any advocates of Scientology.

However, I should say that my younger brother has worked as security guard on Cruise's estate in Telluride and Cruise gave him a gift of $3000 Infrared goggles that my brother still uses for hunting. So, the one reliable fact I have on the guy is actually super generous.

Never seen. Is this a series or the Robert Downey Jr. thing?

2)Supernatural

?

3)Frozen

Apparently this is the craze now, don't even know what it's about but my daughter was singing it the other day.

4) Law and Order: SVU

The last drama series I got in to was probably X-Files. One of those was enough for me.

5)Step up 2
6)Step up 3

These two count as a series. *Awkward silence*

7)Herbie goes to Monte Carlo

?

8)The Avengers

Haven't seen it, I thought the recent surge of comic book movies was not for my taste. I've stayed with the Ironman series, but even the last one of those seemed to be a stretch.

9)Bonanza (don't ask)

Not asking ;)

10) The Three stooges (movie and series)

I love the stooges, never saw the movie but I'll watch the oldies all day long. I'm not even going to watch somebody try and capture the life they had. [expletive deleted] Stooges would be in real life one minute, ancient Egypt the next... It will be many centuries before they find a group of actors to play them better.

If that's the most bazaar quirk you have, you're probably doing pretty good lol

My goodness the Simpsons would have made my list if they didn't continue making the show for 15 years after it ended. Bart would be one year older than me based on the fact I was in 3rd grade when it came out, and I'm 33. It's getting disturbing to see a kid in his 25th year of fourth grade, I like the show but it bothers me that they never age.

4. The Office UK

I really should look up reruns of these, I never watched them all I'm sure.

Star Wars

Are you looking forward to the new series or worried they are going to ruin it forever?

Dexter
Breaking Bad

My father won't shut up about these series.

Predator

Top-20 for me fo'show. Nobody played the one man army like Arnold. He didn't need a lovestory on the side to make a blockbuster.

Lord of the Rings

Just saw Hobbit 2. I think they are starting to stretch this thing out :/ too bad.

Harry Potter

Still haven't gotten into these yet, saw about 1.5 of them. I will inevitably break down at some point in the future...

Serenity
The Island
Click
Cube

Cube's probably top-20 for me. So unique. Sequels can't capture that uniqueness though, and I'm not digging the endings so far.

1. The Dark Knight
2. The Dark Knight Rises

Did you like "Batman" starring Michael Keaton and Jack Nickolson? I watched it the other day, it was OK except for the scenes with the joker's 80's hip hop crew (facepalm). I have to say, however, that the original was probably more impressive relatively; if you look at what else was out at the time (I can only remember Superman and its cheeze) it was a huge jump and set the standard.

3. The Godfather Part II

I still haven't seen this whole series yet, I think I saw the first two.

4. The Departed

Very good movie. The elevator scene was unbelievable.

5. The Godfather
6. GoodFellas

Just watched this again recently, I had seen it as a kid and forgot most of it. Gotta love those old gangster movies.

7. The Wolf of Wall Street

Haven't seen it yet, I understand it's great but I don't get too exited about the pop movies.

8. Inglourious Basterds

Tarantino still got it.

9. The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

You pick a specific one, eh. It all seems like one story to me, I can't pick a movie and say it is superior to the others.

10. Taxi Driver

You talkin' to me? I don't see anyone else around here...

X-Men was the very first multi-episode story line for cartoons and was excellent.

I've noticed there are some real anti-Tom-Cruisers out there. Lots of people I met won't watch the Last Samurai, even though it's a great movie, because of Cruise.
