With the option of voting for *two* films, we had a strong turnout in this week’s poll. Here is what was selected as the best film from Tom Cruise:
– Rain Man: 9 votes
– Minority Report: 8 votes
– Magnolia: 6 votes
– The Last Samurai: 6 votes
– Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol: 6 votes
– Top Gun: 5 votes
– Collateral: 5 votes
– Mission: Impossible: 4 votes
– A Few Good Men: 3 votes
– Vanilla Sky: 3 votes
– Jerry Maguire: 2 votes
– Eyes Wide Shut: 2 votes
– Born on the Fourth of July: 1 vote
Say what you want about the man, but Tom Cruise has had a long and massively successful career. His diverse filmography shines through in the results, with a lot of great films getting votes. Rain Man is a deserving winner, no doubt about it.
This Week’s Poll: After entering Billy Wilder into the Ten Best Directors of All Time Relay Race, I just had to do a poll on him. This is especially fitting since Mr. Wilder’s birthday was just this past Friday. He would have been 106 years old. I know there are a lot of Wilder fans out there, so my question this week is, what is your favorite Billy Wilder film? I would love to hear your thoughts on this one.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Enjoy it while it lasts.
