A Movie Ranking: Tom Cruise

Every once in awhile I come up with a new series to share. Today hails another one of those instances and I’m excited to share it with you. Every Thursday I will share with you a specific actor and I will rank the movies that they have starred in. So, because I’ve seen a bunch of films starring Tom Cruise, he is the first actor to be a part of this series. Enjoy!

15. Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

Tom Cruise and Cobie Smulders in Jack Reacher: Never Go Back (2016)

This is the one Tom Cruise movie I have watched that I couldn’t finish. The story was nonengaging and the sexual tension between his character and Cobie Smulders’ character wasn’t making things better.

14. The Mummy

Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella in The Mummy (2017)

The only reason why I have this movie before Jack Reacher: Never Goes Back is because I actually finished it whereas I couldn’t (or didn’t want to) finish Never Go Back. Continue reading A Movie Ranking: Tom Cruise

Movie Review Flashback: My Review of ‘The Mummy’

This was one of those movies I happened to miss in 2017 but I wasn’t too bummed about it, considering that the movie had received horrendous reviews. I figured that the movie couldn’t be too bad, especially with the fact that it starred Tom Cruise. Tom Cruise doesn’t make bad movies. In fact, I love all of his movies, except for Jack Reacher, but that’s a whole other story.

So I decided to watch The Mummy to see if it really was as bad as everyone said it was. And…at first…it was kind of interesting, storywise. Ahmanet was this Egyptian princess who was destined to become the queen of Egypt but then her father had a son and so the little baby boy took her place as heir to the throne. So, to enact revenge, she sold her soul to the God of Death, Set, and became this evil death lady. She slit her father’s throat, killed her mother, and murdered their newborn son, and then to complete her mission, she needed to plunge this special dagger given to her by Set into the stomach of a man to bring the God of Death to life. But she was prevented from doing so, she was wrapped up like a mummy and buried alive in a casket, never to be found again.

So that was basically the prologue and then the movie started.
