You Do What You Can

Ray-Ban Wayfarers have never looked more appealing than on a young, fresh faced Tom Cruise. I’ve never seen Tom Cruise this young, and now I know why he was such a heartthrob back then.

Cruise plays Joel, a preppy and frustrated high school student, preparing for college along with his friends. He’s the typical good boy who is mocked in the beginning for being too cautious, and ... read more

It has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. Anyway, the main interest here was obviously to see Tom Cruise in his breakthrough performance. Of course, it was thanks to ‘Top Gun’ that he became a major star, a status he still has 30 years later, but it was with this movie that he got his first leading part and, right from the start, the guy was... read more

Left alone in the wealthy northern Chicago suburbs with the family house and Porsche at his disposal, Joel, through his scheming friends, finds himself entertaining to-die-for lady-of-the-night Lana. After meeting Joel's enthusiastic friends, Lana spots a business opportunity, and suggests bringing in some of her equally stunning colleagues. Joel is aghast at such an idea, at least until the Porsche accidentally falls into Lake Michigan, requiring a quick infusion of ready cash.

2015 - Best lists of the year - (10 movies items)

"14.12. Nuoren (alle 35v) Tom Cruisen vanhemmat lähtevät matkalle, ja ainoa tapa täyttää heidän lähtönsä jättämä tyhjiö on tilata luksushuora. Pian nuori (alle 35v) Tom Cruise huomaakin pyörittävänsä bordellia. Leffana Risky Business ei oikein tiedä olisiko se kasariseksikomedia vai omituista tunnelmointia. Tangerine Dreamin musiikki on itsessään hyvää, ja se pyörii taustalla ihan kivasti rullaavissa tunnelmoinneissa, mutta tunnelmoinnit ovat hyvin out of place, kun seuraa"

Movies the giraffe watched in 2015: November (22 movies items)

"First viewing - Nov. 3rd So it turns out this was pretty decent. Young Tom Cruise shows a bit of range as well as sure signs he can carry a movie and would become a star. The story is entertaining if a bit unbelievable and predictable at times. The rest of the cast is pretty solid, and it was cool to see a couple of familiar faces I didn't expect. The soundtrack is decent enough, though I'm sure 80s pop fans appreciate it far more than me. And in the end it never really crosses any lines of gre"

"9.8, PC Sisältää muutaman hyvän kohtauksen lähinnä teinirakkaustunnelmointinsa takia, mutta muuten tämä on melko perinteistä aikansa teinielokuvaa nuorella Tom Cruisella. "

“It has been a while since I have seen this flick and maybe I should re-watch it at some point. Anyway, the main interest here was obviously to see Tom Cruise in his breakthrough performance. Of course, it was thanks to ‘Top Gun’ that he became a major star, a status he still has 30 years later, but it was with this movie that he got his first leading part and, right from the start, the guy was noticed for his charisma and the rest is just history. At the time, this flick received some solid reviews but, to be honest, I didn’t like it much. Indeed, even though many critics thought it was a great satire, I thought it was another typical teen comedy which wants you to believe that it is really raunchy but nothing really shocking happens after all. I don’t know, maybe I was too young a” read more

From Best to Worst: Tom Cruise (45 movies items)

"Featuring one of Tom Cruise's best early performances, Risky Business is a sharp, funny examination of teen angst that doesn't stop short of exploring dark themes."
