After escaping unscathed out of the Paramount fiasco, he now teams up with Universal to help create "Oblivion," a sci-fi thriller that's ambitious and breathtaking. In any case, that's what was promised on paper. Because "Oblivion" did hold promise--on a large scale. All the elements were there for serious, high-brow sci-fi entertainment: a namesake ... more >

Jack Reacher

A thriller for the action-starved Christmas moviegoer
Tom Cruise, Rosamund Pike and Richard Jenkins
Directed by Christopher McQuarrie

“Jack Reacher," based on the Lee Child novel “One Shot," begins chillingly enough with the stigma of the recent tragedy in Connecticut.

Rock of Ages


Self-destructive decadence--but no cigarette smoking
Diego Boneta, Julianne Hough and Tom Cruise

Rock of Ages, this week’s hair metal spandex singalong, asks a basic question: what’s the point of a musical? More specifically, it asks a pair of underlying questions about musicals: is enjoyment a worthy artistic goal? Is sentimental simplification acceptable in the name of fantasy and fun?
