I love the guy. I don't care about the Scientology thing or the weirdness thing. I am a full-on Tom Cruise fan. When I watch a movie and he's in it, I know the movie will be good. My favorite Tom Cruise movie of all time is A Few Good Men with honorable mentions to Oblivion, The Last Samurai and Minority Report. Loved Top Gun, Legend, and was even excited when he did a cameo in Austin Powers 3. My guilty pleasure is I loved him in Tropic Thunder. He was so offensively over the top I laugh whenever I see it, it never gets old.
The only role I didn't really like for him was Lestat in Interview With a Vampire, but he was still way better than I expected.
People look at me funny when I say I'm a fan of Tom Cruise, because he is kinda weird, but I don't care. The man knows how to make great movies.
