Valkyrie Trailer

I know this trailer came out last week, but last night was the first time I got to see it. You know Tom Cruise is trying to be serious when he whispers through the whole movie. He really only has one character that he plays. There is nothing wrong with that as Adam Sandler or Vince Vaughn can tell you. However, the difference is they know they are only playing one character and go with it. Tom Cruise actually believes he is a good actor. He used to be a good actor. Now he is almost a caricature of himself each time. Most people think this movie is going to do awful. I actually think that if you had put someone else into the Tom Cruise role it would do pretty well. The last thing I actually liked Tom Cruise in was his cameo in Austin Powers. Maybe if Valkyrie does really bad he will sign on to do Stroker Ace 2 with Burt Reynolds.

Why anyone would want to see a rehash of this ancient history is beyond me, regardless who's in it?!?!?!

Does he think that overannunciating every word = German accent? It's really stupid to see a Nazi movie with an American accent...couldn't they have gotten someone who could fake it?

ITA with the comment that Tom used to be a good actor. I thought he was very good in Rain Man and deserved an Oscar much more so than Dustin Hoffman. He was even good in Collateral (until that silly shoot em up Bruce Lee acrobatic scene). I was afraid that he was too much of a pretty boy to be taken seriously.

Now, he's just a weirdo and I really don't care if I never saw another movie with him.

I agree with Kristen S. it's bothersome to have a German movie in American English. I'd rather watch with English subtitles. That being said, I'm probably going to see this once it hits DVD. Movies based on historical truth fascinate me.

Personally, I thought his greatest role was in Magnolia. Respect the manhood.

nope, huh-uh, can't do it. can't even watch the clip.
i can not stand him, or whatever it is he stands for.
besides, i refuse to put a single penny into the scientologist's pockets.

After Taps everything was a slippery slope to Oprah's couch.

This would seem more believable if he was playing the meglomaniac with the little mustache.

I can't watch it. I just can't stand him. I'll got check out a book and learn what I need to know about the history.

Never was a good actor. Never will be.

Kinda liked him way back when. Then he went crazy and now his name just induces a gag reflex.

You know, Scienos believe in reincarnation and I read somewhere that Cruise actually believes he was von something in his past life. Allegedly of course.

Linkie: (had to split into two lines. too long.) 3/4 of the way down. #2 on a list.
