Tom Cruise Tuesday! – Kind words about Tom

Welcome to Tom Cruise Tuesday!

Here is a new little feature that we think will be a great addition to TCT! As we have said before, we love it when people have positive things to say about Tom. With “Kind Words about Tom”, we will feature quotes from those who have worked with him, or been positively affected by him.

Our first quote comes, quite fittingly, from Christopher McQuarrie. Chris has worked with Tom on several films, and has now become the first director ever to direct two “Mission Impossible” films! Tom and Chris have a great working relationship, and they have great things to say about each other!

Read on for our kindly quote of the week!

Melt that popcorn and read on!

Jack Reacher

We were in a Reacher-y mood, so we decided to stick with him! Time to tackle the first installment of the Reacher film franchise – Jack Reacher, based on the Lee Child book Oneshot.

Smartass Summary: The one from those books!

Slightly less smartass summary: Guy tries to keep a promise, but lady lawyer distracts him.

Ok ok, REAL summary: Bad guys commit multiple murders, good guy commits multiple murders back. But it’s okay because it’s for JUSTICE.

Overall opinion:
Buttered Popcorn likes this movie a lot! There’s plenty of action, plenty of humor, and lots of kickass ass-kicking! (Did you see what we did there?) There’s a mystery to be solved, and that keeps us interested, waiting to see what’s next. But most of all, the bad guys get theirs, and the good guys don’t pull their punches. In other words – it’s great!
