You know when Tom Cruise went crazy and the world turned their back on him? I didn’t. I was there, standing in line to see War Of The Worlds, his 2005 sci-fi epic which has a firm place in my top 10 favourite films of all time. Being a loopy Scientologist wasn’t enough to turn me off of one of my favourite actors, not when he was still doing work that I enjoyed watching.
Which brings us to Cruise’s latest and possibly greatest role, as the burnt out rocker Stacee Jaxx in the new musical Rock of Ages, in theatres this weekend. Even with all the great 80′s hair metal music, even with all the fun performances from Hollywood A-listers like Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Paul Giamatti and Russell Brand, the reason I couldn’t get enough of this film was how absolutely, absurdly awesome Tom Cruise is.
