You misheard.

So it was crap? 05-stirthepot

First movie was ok. Had a couple of good performances (Duvall!); Cruise was fine. Worth your time if you can stream if for free; questionable if you have to pay. But to your point above, which implies you've read at least one of the books... Tom Cruise is NOT the Jack Reacher from the books. He's a fine action guy/problem solver/etc. But as you note the book character is a big, bad assed dude. A brawler of a fighter. I've read a couple of the books. They were ok but they definitely formed an impression of who Reacher is, and it was difficult to look at Cruise playing the role after reading one of the books. And agreeing with Badger, the second movie isn't worth your time, even if free.


I read the first book in the Jack Reacher series after seeing the first movie and what a bad job at casting versus the description in the novels.

Tom Cruise needs a hit soon after the Mummy flopping

You're right but something tells me it isn't going to be Top Gun II. Can't help but think it will be God awful. Probably make a crap load of money, but be awful.

My guess would be he'll have to wait for 2018 and the next Mission Impossible movie.

RE: The movie thread
Saw Cars 3 tonight. Ehh... the setup about McQueen and not quite being ready to retire was a good idea.... and for the most part the movie worked...but.... the end/ending with McQueen having to see who taught Doc Hudson, and where he raced as a beginner, seemed a little long winded and then how the final race played out.... I don't consider myself a fan of that. The trainer Cruz Ramirez was funny to begin with but kind of wore thin with her gimmick by the end of the movie.

FWIW, I can't believe we have gotten 3 theatrical Cars movies (and I believe one theatrical spin off movie) and yet are still stuck with only ONE Incredibles movie.

Agree with the point that we've needed an Incredibles sequel much more than a 3rd Cars (or Toy Story, for that matter). But you guys do realize there is an Incredibles 2 in pre-production, right? June 2018 release.
