Say what you want about Tom Cruise, but I dare anyone to not find at least one Tom Cruise movie in which they'll admit his acting was brilliant. He started as a teen and has not stopped yet. He brings thrills, chills, laughter, tears and soon music to the big screen, and I've loved every bit of it. Tom, you are my all-American hero of the box office. I love ya, and no one will ever make me feel differently. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Thumbs up to Tor Myhren of the Huffington Post for admitting he's the "best actor of the last 30 years."
18 Reasons my Tom Cruise is a match for theHuffpo's Tom Cruise:
1. Mission Impossible II - Jumps from motorcycle to mid-air fight
2. Valkyrie - Only one smart enough to know Hitler needed to be killed
3. Lions for Lambs - Tom can be my senator any day
4. Knight and Day - Who else can do a comedy knockoff of himself so well
5. The Last Samurai - He literally almost lost his head in this one
6. Interview with the Vampire - No one, not even Anne Rice thought he could pull this off and he did it brilliantly; possibly the best performance he's ever given IMO
7. The Firm - Mr. Sexy outsmarts even the baddest lawyers
8. Mission Impossible IV: Ghost Protocol - When even the IMF disavows his existence, he comes through
9. Mission Impossible III: Even "Truman Capote" has no chance against the all powerful Ethan Hunt
10. Far and Away - Tom Cruise barehand boxing, alright
11, Days of Thunder - "Cruisin'" the Nascar circuit, hell yeah
12. Legend - defeats the Lord of Darkness
13. Losin' It - How many other guys get to "lose it" on film and go on to be a spy, a vampire, a race car driver, a boxer, etc., etc.
14. Endless Love - hey, at least it got a mention on MST3000!
15. Rock of Ages - What is there left to be for this king of all trades but a rock star!!!

17. Tom Cruise chews out Matt Lauer on live TV - Come on, haven't we all wanted to, one time or another?
