    I think my favorite TC movies are MI4, MI5, Knight and Day and Jack Reacher ? it’s so hard to decide though! I love almost anything he’s in. I’m gonna see American Made this friday! Can’t wait!

  2. My favorite Tom Cruise movies are: The Mummy, American Made, The Last Samurai, Cocktail & Rock of Ages. I also love his interviews.

    1. Nice choices!! I can’t wait to finally see American Made this weekend!! 😀 Thanks for joining the giveaway, and good luck!!

    1. Nice! I love it, those are some of my favorites! It’s so hard to choose, but I love that you picked three out of four with long hair Tom! XD Thanks for joining the giveaway, and good luck!

  3. @FanOfMarkimoo You know me! ;D
    I really haven’t been a fan of Tom’s for very long. Like 5 months I believe? My friend Maddy got me into Simon Pegg, and through Mission Impossible, I started watching more Tom movies. Me and Maddy Skype sometimes and watch movies together. We watched Collateral together and it was our first time seeing it. We loved it. Since then I’ve watched a handful of Tom movies. It’s hard to pick a favorite. It’s between Tropic Thunder and Collateral. I guess I’d choose Collateral since it was so unique. Vincent was absolutely, terrifyingly handsome. And I just can’t understand why my family hates Tom so much.

    1. Yay! Glad you entered the contest! We’re all about the TC love, and 5 months is not shabby! Most people think I’ve been a fan since I was two or something, but it’s only been since 2010. Funny story, but I loved Simon in Star Trek 2009, and when I found out he would be in a Mission movie, I decided to give it a try. More details in my “Creator’s Corner” post, but long story short, was hooked ever since! Collateral is a great one – Soooooooo gritty, I love it a lot. Tom should play more super-terrifying badasses.

    That’s a tough one. I’d say my favorite is Valkyrie. Although The Last Samurai is up there on my favorites list also.

    1. Thanks for joining the sweepstakes! Both of those are great, very intense movies, with some amazing performances by Tom, as well as the rest of the cast.

  5. I know it is just a huge cameo, but my fave Tom performance has to be Tropic Thunder. He isn’t pretty and he isn’t doing crazy/amazing stunts – just tearing up an intense and hilarious role as only he can!

    1. Great! Thanks for entering our contest!!

      😀 I really love Tom in Tropic Thunder! I think it came at a time where people kind of took him for granted, and (besides just being an awesomely funny role) it reminded people – hey, he CAN act! Naturally, the diehards never doubted that, but it showed some people that he can be in a movie without people saying, “Welp, there’s TOM CRUISE.”
