Introduction:Picking the top five Tom Cruise movies is a daunting undertaking. Tom Cruise has been in a lot of movies through the years. His career spans a few decades. He has made many movies and picking the top five is quite the task.
"The Outsiders" is by far the best movie Tom Cruise was ever in. It is probably due to the fact he isn't in much of his. The cast was outstanding and many of those young actors went on to do great things with their careers.
After "The Outsiders," Tom Cruise's career went down hill. He wasn't that great in many other movies. He was always surrounded by brilliant actors and actresses that "carried" him through the movies. He just isn't that good of an actor.
"The Outsiders" has already been listed and the "pickin's" are slim after that. Tom Cruise was horrible in ""Rain Man." Dustin Hoffman carried him in that movie as well. There was "Days of Thunder," but Robert Duvall and Nicole Kidman made that movie almost bearable.
"The Outsiders" has been mentioned. There isn't much else to choose from. Tom Cruise did "Born on the Fourth of July," but he wasn't good in that one either. The subject matter overshadowed his lack of talent. If not for Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Renee Zellweger, "Jerry McGuire" would have been a waste of time.
After "The Outsiders," Tom Cruise hasn't given any good performances. Face it, he isn't that great of an actor. He plays the same roles all the time and the cast is forced to pick up his slack. Or the special effects. Either way, it isn't Tom Cruise that makes the movie good.
Despite the fact that only one Tom Cruise can be put in a list of the top five Tom Cruise movies, don't feel too bad for him. He still has the Church of Scientology there for him. John Travolta won't leave him. Can't say the same thing about his wives and kids. Of course, he those Oscars to keep him company.
There are lots of good Tom Cruise movies, Top Gun is still referenced in several movies and other entertainment genres. Days of Thunder made history because it was one of the first movies about racing that actually allowed an actor to drive a car at high speeds.
