|When will Tom Cruise win an Oscar for best runner? He's just so damn good at it.|
Googan Suggestion - Slim pickings this week dweebs. But see Oblivion. Tom Cruise demands validation.

Thoughts - Okay, so this may be a reach, but I kind of feel like Tom Cruise is a much more polished version of Nic Cage. Crazy, makes way too many movies, but every, I don't know, six or seven years, can spit out a pretty awesome performance (Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call for Cage, Collateral and Magnolia for Cruise). Naturally, this isn't one of them.
This movie looks very... sleek. A little too sleek. As if the creative team put all the concept art and costumes together first and then were like, "Oh, sh*t, I think we need a story." I mean hey, Kosinski clearly has a very sharp visual eye. And I think it's pretty cool that he utilizes innovative electronic groups for his scores (M83 for Oblivion and Daft Punk for Tron: Legacy). But dude, let's be real. Tron: Legacy suuuuuuuucked. Like I turned it off after thirty-five minutes WHILE f*cked up. As in I literally made a conscious decision to shut the movie off while simultaneously killing my brain with foreign substances.
What I'm saying is just because you put a nice sheen on a car doesn't exactly mean it's going to run very well once you hop on the highway.
That was a pretty good metaphor, huh? Whatever, let's go Knicks.
