No fucking way did I buy him as The Last Samurai, though.
On the other hand, I thought his cameo in Tropic Thunder was outstanding.
I still think his cameo in Tropic Thunder is his best moment on-screen.
I was about to say Vanilla Sky sucked, but then realized I was confusing it with October Sky.
I guess I could also add Mission Impossible 4 to the list of great films that Tom Cruise just happens to be in.
