With an opening weekend take of $28 million, Tom Cruises new sci-fi film Edge of Tomorrow which debuted June 6 did even worse than his last sci-fi movie, 2013s Oblivion. In the last eight years, Cruise has had only one hit (2011s Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol). It looks like hes nearing the end of his run as a major movie star, though well see how Mission: Impossible 5 does when it comes out next year.

Hey, don’t forget “Dumb and Dumber”!
It couldn’t happen to a nicer group of libs.
Interesting. They’re all a bit long in the tooth to be leading men these days.
No one can relate to cruise. Straight people think of him as uncomfortably gay, gay people think of him as closeted beyond reason, and the world thinks of him as a terrible actor. He looks like a freakily old 24 year old, and the costumes and shooting aren’t gift wrapping his talents.
And just how many of these actors belong to the commie marxist hollyweird moonbat club? 6?
Something like "Vanilla Sky" would have had a lot more specificity.
George Clooney is a one trick pony. Great looking, has to be seen as the cool guy in all his movies (including his permanent movie, the tabloids). It’s gets old. So will he.
They are old.
Nothing lasts forever and there are several very good actors, younger of course, who are taking over.
Johnny Depp ruined himself with the Pirates movies. Every single role since has Jack Sparrow emerging no matter what.
Adam Sandler is just not funny. He is either some crazed character or a homely Everyman who can sometimes manage to make one small scene “touching.”
His babytalk voice could be used instead of water boarding.
The highlight of his career for me was the Chanukah Song.
How do you know Cruise is gay?
I went to see Edge yesterday. I thought it was pretty decent.
I am not a fan of Sci-Fi or Tom Cruise per se, but enjoyed the flick.
Every Johnny Depp movie:
1. Johnny is in heavy costume and makeup
2. Johnny will be quirky
3. Johnny will be cool and the women will want him
Say what you will about Cruise's personal life but he's a professional who knows how to make good movies - same with Mel Gibson. He's also pretty apolitical - something I really appreciate from movie stars, especially when compared to the supersaturated left-wing views of almost the entire movie industry.
How do you know Cruise is gay?
I don’t know anyone who thinks he’s straight.
There are too many stories. I am making an assumption.
Edge of Tomorrow and Oblivion are
bot absolutely GREAT sci fi movies.
Maybe someone heard it from one of Clooney's beards.
I do think tom cruise has made great movies. I’ve seen top gun a zillion times. But he’s a movie star, not an actor.
very well put.
