I was thinking this morning about Tom Cruise. No, I’m not gay and, allegedly, neither is he. I was listening to a random shuffle of tunes from my iTunes and Take My Breath Away by Berlin came on. It got me thinking about Top Gun and all the great Tom Cruise movies like Jerry Maguire, A Few Good Men, and Risky Business. It made me realize that I’m a Tom Cruise fan, or at least I used to be.
I generally try not to let my opinions of artists personal lives affect how I feel about their work. For example, I like most of Madonna’s music even though I think she’s a moron. Well, Tom has been making this pretty hard to do lately. I don’t have a problem with his religion. I don’t have a problem with anyone’s religion but Tom wants to make his religion my problem. He wants to make it your problem too. Plus, he’s forgotten how to make really good movies.
So, I guess I’m no longer a Tom Cruise fan but at least I can still watch his old movies.
