Jack Reacher is mentioned a couple of times in UtD. Is this the Jack reacher from the Lee Child novels? I haven't read any of them so i can't really make this up from the story, no idea if he's millitary for instance...

Why am I laughing? That's low*, champ1966, but it's funny (*no pun intended)!It's not the midget Jack Reacher from the films though.
Could you cut him some slack in War of the Worlds(2005) and Born on the 4th of July(1989)?I have a problem with Cruise in just about any role.
I know he approved the choice and you can't argue with that. After all, Morgan Freeman played Red and Tim Robbins played a short accountant type guy with sandy blond hair and it has to be one of the best movies I've ever seen.No. It's not just you.
But ultimately, Mr. Child owns Reacher and he can do what he wants with him (sigh).
Gotta respect a man's property . .
In my highly subjective opinion, Tom Cruise tends to over-act and ruins a lot of movies that otherwise had a potential to be good and that includes the first Jack Reacher movie. In fact, Tom Cruise is the reason I don't want to see the second movie that just came out.Could you cut him some slack in War of the Worlds(2005) and Born on the 4th of July(1989)?
WOTW was as scary as all get-out and he was a convincing regular guy.
And July made me stop and think properly about the guys who couldn't (and didn't) dodge the draft (like one of my tutors at university). Late-flourishing shame, if you will, 10 years after I went to university.
When the UK got into Gulf War 1.
Now it's personal, when your baby brother's older friend is out there, in the sandbox, and you're hoping and praying his buddy comes home. . .
Anyway, way off topic (sorry!).
Cruise can act, but not Reacher.
No, not for WOTW. But I can for BOT4OJ, I guess. I actually did like him in Risky Business but then he got all full of himself real quick. I know people who have worked with him and they have stories.... I know I should be able to separate the actor from the man but I just can't. My deal, I know it. I own it.Could you cut him some slack in War of the Worlds(2005) and Born on the 4th of July(1989)?
Being able to separate the actor from the (wo)man is very very difficult - when I found out a thing or two about James Stewart, via his biographer, I dumped his films.I know people who have worked with him and they have stories....
