Here are the results of the latest SF Signal poll.
Which of these Tom Cruise movies had you jumping up and down on the couch?
|(111 total votes)|
Half of us seem to like Tom Cruise sci-fi movies about as much as we’d like being dumped in a volcano by Xenu. That’s a larger percentage than I would have guessed. Is Cruise too pretty or something?
Some comments this week:
“Minority Report, while an idea that is not new by SF print standards, still was an important SF movie and a superior Dick adaptation.” – Paul Weimer
“I watched ‘Interview‘ in spite of Mr. Cruise; I like vampires. Did take awhile to see it, though.” – Richard Novak
“I chose Legend not because of Tom Cruise, but because of Tim Curry. He was awesome as the devil! I also chose this one because Tom Cruise has maybe a total of 15 minutes of speaking dialog in the whole movie… which is a bonus because he wasn’t much of an actor at this point. Oh, and he’s short, which is unimpressive to Xenu.” – Trent
“They were all varying degrees of awful. War of the Worlds was the least painful for me; the bits without Tom cruise in them were very nearly interesting.
“The short little bugger’s gotta go away eventually, right? (I’m referring to Tom Cruise; obvously)” – Pete Tz.
“Do you mean good jumping or bad jumping? I remember Legend as a good movie but it was before Tom Cruise was famous. The other movies were good in their own right and Cruise couldn’t quite ruin them. Now I think I would shy away from a Tom Cruise movie just for decorums sake.” – Richard
[Good point, Richard! My wording left that open, didn’t it… I meant it as “liked it very much”. – John]
