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 1186 Average listal rating (853 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 3559 Average listal rating (2227 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 4663 Average listal rating (3278 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.

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 รฉlan.
People who added this item 755 Average listal rating (462 ratings) 6.8 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 16 Average listal rating (8 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.4
People who added this item 2699 Average listal rating (1807 ratings) 7.1 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 2414 Average listal rating (1554 ratings) 6.6 IMDB Rating 7.3
Jerry Maguire (1996)
Anchored by dazzling performances from Tom Cruise, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Renรฉe Zellweger, as well as Cameron Crowe's tender direction, Jerry Maguire meshes romance and sports with panache.
People who added this item 2795 Average listal rating (1654 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 2690 Average listal rating (1804 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 1724 Average listal rating (1103 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 137 Average listal rating (90 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.8
Taps (1981)
People who added this item 1000 Average listal rating (652 ratings) 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.8

dianasauras's rating:
People who added this item 2464 Average listal rating (1606 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 485 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 1031 Average listal rating (604 ratings) 6.9 IMDB Rating 7.1
The Outsiders (1983)
People who added this item 3681 Average listal rating (2459 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 (894 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 3843 Average listal rating (2610 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 733 Average listal rating (525 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 2670 Average listal rating (1763 ratings) 5.6 IMDB Rating 6.1
Your cranium may crave more substance, but your eyes will feast on the amazing action sequences.

People who added this item 2932 Average listal rating (1877 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 1174 Average listal rating (806 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 2869 Average listal rating (1897 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 1205 Average listal rating (789 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 125 Average listal rating (81 ratings) 6.2 IMDB Rating 5.9
People who added this item 892 Average listal rating (582 ratings) 6.3 IMDB Rating 6.5
Legend (1985)
People who added this item 696 Average listal rating (448 ratings) 6.1 IMDB Rating 6.6
Far and Away (1992)
People who added this item 3194 Average listal rating (2023 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 441 Average listal rating (253 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 732 Average listal rating (488 ratings) 5.4 IMDB Rating 6
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 45 Average listal rating (22 ratings) 5 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 453 Average listal rating (275 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 82 Average listal rating (47 ratings) 5.8 IMDB Rating 4.9
Endless Love (1981)
People who added this item 55 Average listal rating (32 ratings) 4.4 IMDB Rating 4.9
Losin' It (1983)
People who added this item 821 Average listal rating (533 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.
