I wish Tom Cruise would go back to doing interesting films again.He's a very compelling screen presence,but I have no desire to watch Mission Impossible 18,or Top Gun 2.

That "parents of Alice and Peter Pan"movie sounds incredibly dumb and so 2018.Combining the senseless prequel trend with the endless rebooting of fairy tales.At least it doesn't seem to be linked to Disney,yet.Can we get Jolie and Oyelowo playing a couple in literally any other project,please?

Tom's a 1 man nostalgia van.

Tom Cruise....keeps making the same old shit and they've become boring to watch.

I see all of those Disney princesses and I'm asking....where's Princess Shuri of Wakanda fromBlack Panther?I know she's a Marvel character but since Disney owns Marvel,she's technically a Disney princess and the most badass of them all.

Tom Cruise is too old for "Top Gun 2"- Disney has ruined "Star Wars"

May 31,2018 | Unregistered CommenterJaragon

I'd love if TOP GUN 2 turned out to be about a bunch of men whose toxic bro attitude has driven away every woman who's ever loved them and then they realize they really just love playing volleyballs with the dudes without shirts on and they then start up an airline just for the gays.

Alas.

Somebody asked me on Twitter what I thought of Emelia Clarke in SOLO and I said I had no real point of reference since I don't watch Game of Thrones,but that she was fine.Everybody in SOLO is fine because nobody is being asked to do anything outside of their already established personas.That includes Glover who of course people are flipping tables for,but,like,he's just fine.He's maybe even bad because the role is badly written,but probably just fine.

Billy Magnussen!He is so flipping funny.But alas,as much as I love theater,I can't pay for yet another streaming service.Unless Stage starts showing filmed versions of productions,like National Theatre Live.

It's so weird to me how much flack Emilia Clarke comes in for,as opposed to,say,Kit Harrington or any number of other underwhelming actors on Game of Thrones.She's no great shakes,but she's enormously affecting in that one role.
