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

“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."

“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 for not taking any risk. His passive attitude starts to change upon meeting call girl Lana, the girl that every boy off the lake wants.

For me, the movie is about the responsibilities that teenagers will ultimately have to carry once they become adults. Because honestly, teenagers are still kids, they’re still a long way from maturity and mostly focus on the little things that in the long r” read more
