The Queen (2006)
Full of wit, humor, and pathos, Stephen Frears' moving portrait of the British royals during the period after Princess Diana's death features not one but two remarkable performances, that of Helen Mirren as Queen Elizabeth II and Michael Sheen as the newly-ordained Prime Minister Tony Blair. They embody their characters and lay bare the motivations behind these prominent people, giving viewers a glimpse into the inner workings of the British monarchy.

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.
Stylish, fast-paced, and loaded with gripping set pieces, the fourth Mission: Impossible is big-budget popcorn entertainment that really works.

Room 237 (2012)
Mysterious and provocative, Room 237 is a fascinating journey into the world of obsessive cinephilles.
People who added this item 1207 Average listal rating (871 ratings) 7.4 IMDB Rating 7.9
Gripping, well-acted, funny, and clever, Edge of Tomorrow offers entertaining proof that Tom Cruise is still more than capable of shouldering the weight of a blockbuster action thriller.
dianasauras's rating:
People who added this item 3572 Average listal rating (2237 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8
Rain Man (1988)
This road-trip movie about an autistic savant and his callow brother is far from seamless, but Barry Levinson's direction is impressive, and strong performances from Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman add to its appeal.
dianasauras's rating:
People who added this item 4675 Average listal rating (3284 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.6
Thought-provoking and visceral, Steven Spielberg successfully combines high concept ideas and high octane action in this fast and febrile sci-fi thriller.
People who added this item 1085 Average listal rating (703 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7.2
Led by an unforgettable performance from Tom Cruise, Born on the Fourth of July finds director Oliver Stone tackling thought-provoking subject matter with ambitious élan.
People who added this item 767 Average listal rating (474 ratings) 6.7 IMDB Rating 7
That it's inferior to the original goes without saying, but Paul Newman and Tom Cruise are a joy to watch, and Martin Scorsese's direction is typically superb.
People who added this item 15 Average listal rating (7 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.4
People who added this item 2711 Average listal rating (1814 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.5
Collateral (2004)
Driven by director Michael Mann's trademark visuals and a lean, villainous performance from Tom Cruise, Collateral is a stylish and compelling noir thriller.
People who added this item 2424 Average listal rating (1560 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.3
Jerry Maguire (1996)
Anchored by dazzling performances from Tom Cruise, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Renée Zellweger, as well as Cameron Crowe's tender direction, Jerry Maguire meshes romance and sports with panache.
People who added this item 2805 Average listal rating (1657 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8
Magnolia (1999)
Critics say Magnolia is an ambitious, lengthy work that ultimately succeeds due to the interesting stories and excellent ensemble performances.
People who added this item 2697 Average listal rating (1807 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 7
With biting satire, plenty of subversive humor, and an unforgettable turn by Robert Downey, Jr., Tropic Thunder is a triumphant late Summer comedy.
dianasauras's rating:
People who added this item 1738 Average listal rating (1113 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.7
An old-fashioned courtroom drama with a contemporary edge, A Few Good Men succeeds on the strength of its stars, with Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, and especially Jack Nicholson delivering powerful performances that more than compensate for the predictable plot.
People who added this item 138 Average listal rating (90 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.8
Taps (1981)
People who added this item 1002 Average listal rating (651 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.8

People who added this item 2469 Average listal rating (1607 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 6.9
Fast-paced, with eye-popping stunts and special effects, the latest Mission: Impossible installment delivers everything an action fan could ask for. A thrilling summer popcorn flick.
dianasauras's rating:
People who added this item 484 Average listal rating (341 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.6
Religulous (2008)
Religulous is funny and offensive in equal measure, and aims less to change hearts and minds than to inspire conversation.
People who added this item 1042 Average listal rating (609 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.1
The Outsiders (1983)
People who added this item 3690 Average listal rating (2465 ratings) 7 IMDB Rating 7.7
With high production values and thrilling battle scenes, The Last Samurai is a satisfying epic.
People who added this item 1404 Average listal rating (893 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.1
Valkyrie (2008)
Given the subject matter, Valkyrie could have been an outstanding historical thriller, but settles for being a mildly entertaining, but disposable yarn.
Despite lacking some of the book's subtler shadings, and suffering from some clumsy casting, Interview with a Vampire benefits from Neil Jordan's atmospheric direction and a surfeit of gothic thrills.
People who added this item 3858 Average listal rating (2621 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.1
Full of special effects, Brian DePalma's update of Mission: Impossible has a lot of sweeping spectacle, but the plot is sometimes convoluted.
dianasauras's rating:
People who added this item 739 Average listal rating (531 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 7
Jack Reacher (2012)
Jack Reacher is an above-average crime thriller with a smoothly charismatic performance from Tom Cruise.
People who added this item 2684 Average listal rating (1770 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 6.1
Your cranium may crave more substance, but your eyes will feast on the amazing action sequences.
dianasauras's rating:
People who added this item 2952 Average listal rating (1890 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.9
Top Gun (1986)
Though it features some of the most memorable and electrifying aereial footage shot with an expert eye for action, Top Gun offers too little for non-adolescent viewers to chew on when its characters aren't in the air.
dianasauras's rating:
People who added this item 1185 Average listal rating (814 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 7
Oblivion (2013)
Visually striking but thinly scripted, Oblivion benefits greatly from its strong production values and an excellent performance from Tom Cruise.
dianasauras's rating:
People who added this item 2873 Average listal rating (1896 ratings) 5.7 IMDB Rating 6.2
While the narrative structure is messy and doesn't make much sense, the third installment of the Austin Powers franchise contains enough inspired bits to entertain.
dianasauras's rating:
People who added this item 1215 Average listal rating (794 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 6.3
It's pure formula, but thanks to its breezy pace and a pair of charming performances from Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, Knight and Day offers some agreeably middle-of-the-road summer action.
People who added this item 126 Average listal rating (82 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 5.9
People who added this item 900 Average listal rating (589 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.4
Legend (1985)
People who added this item 699 Average listal rating (449 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.6
Far and Away (1992)
People who added this item 3205 Average listal rating (2030 ratings) 6.4 IMDB Rating 6.9
Vanilla Sky (2001)
An ambitious mix of genres, Vanilla Sky collapses into an incoherent jumble. Cruise's performance lacks depth, and it's hard to feel sympathy for his narcissistic character.
People who added this item 444 Average listal rating (254 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.9
Rock of Ages (2012)
Its exuberant silliness is almost enough to make up for its utter inconsequentiality, but Rock of Ages is ultimately too bland and overlong to justify its trip to the big screen.
People who added this item 730 Average listal rating (487 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 6.1
Days of Thunder has Tom Cruise and plenty of flash going for it, but they aren't enough to compensate for the stock plot, two-dimensional characters, and poorly written dialogue.
People who added this item 47 Average listal rating (24 ratings) 5.2 IMDB Rating 5.4
Josh Hartnett puts in a well-intentioned performance but overall, August only superficially explores its dotcom-burst setting.
People who added this item 456 Average listal rating (276 ratings) 6 IMDB Rating 6.2
Despite its powerhouse cast, Lions for Lambs feels like a disjointed series of lectures, rather than a sharp narrative, and ends up falling flat.
People who added this item 83 Average listal rating (48 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 4.9
Endless Love (1981)
People who added this item 56 Average listal rating (33 ratings) 4.4 IMDB Rating 4.9
Losin' It (1983)
People who added this item 823 Average listal rating (535 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 5.9
Cocktail (1988)
There are no surprises in Cocktail, a shallow, dramatically inert romance that squanders Tom Cruise's talents in what amounts to a naive barkeep's banal fantasy.
