Yeah, I'd say I'm still a beginner when it comes to fantasy baseball. I've been in a league for a couple of years but I still don’t know too many of the players, and I still don’t know why I should do this or that. I should NOT be giving advice, that much I can tell you. ;-)

My wife didn't want to see it because of Tom Cruise's antics, so I agree that it definitely cost him money. On the other hand, he's so incredibly rich that it doesn't even matter. On the latest Entertainment Weekly it said that Cruise made $75 million from MI2 and $100 millions from War of the Worlds. This includes both the front AND back end. He essentially gives up all of his salary upfront in exchange for 20-30% of the gross.

I think Tom Cruise is a fruitcake but I do like him as an actor and have no problem paying money to see his movies. Why should I deprive myself of watching a decent movie because of the actor's politics/religious beliefs, you know?

I saw MI3 this past Saturday and thought it was just mediocre. Tom Cruise actually did a good job acting, but I like action movies to have a certain degree of realism to them and the MI movies are anything but realistic. It wasn't a bad way to spend a couple hours, though.

its a combination of both things for me. i am tired of cruise but i would be more interested in the movie if the second one didnt stink so bad. it has a different director so i will probably watch it when it hits dvd. since going to the theatre is getting expensive i'm a little more careful about the films i see.

I don't see a need to boycott a movie. Cruise is a subperb actor and his movies are generally entertaining. I don't think that the publicity is hurting him at all. People have already seen MI type movies before. This is also the third installment of MI series. Frankly I thought the second one was awful and I won't pay a full price to see this one. I'll wait for the dvd.

I really hope MI3 tanks because I could not be more sick of Tom Cruise lately. Maybe if the movie flops it will shut him up.

But he is a great actor who has made some classic films. My favorite of his is Minority Report.

Vanilla Sky was pretty good. And you cannot forget Top Gun and Risky Business.

Vanilla Sky is my favorite Cruise movie even though a lot of people didn't like it. Believe it or not, I really liked Cocktail also. I know it was cheesy, but I used to have such a crush on Elizabeh Shue. (it all started with Adventures in Babysitting) :-b

A young Gina Gershon was in that one too. ;-D
