Iconic and not-so-iconic cinematic action stars

The action hero is an archetype of storytelling that exploded in popularity and significance with the visual spectacle afforded by the film industry. Particularly in the excess of the 1980s, pretty much all that was needed to gross a hundred million dollars was a glossy movie poster with the star’s name, the title, the muscular hunk drenched in sweat and swagger, and perhaps a...

20 stunts only Tom Cruise can pull off in movies

Tom Cruise has been one of the world's most popular movie stars since 1983's "Risky Business." A combination of cocky charm, god-given good looks and unflagging intensity regardless of the role, he demands your attention. He's got it all.

The Mummy is a stumble for Tom Cruise, Universal’s Dark Universe of movie monsters

Whenever writing a review on a Tom Cruise movie, I often feel the need to defend my enjoyment of his work. Despite getting frequently derided — especially on social media — he’s still a huge star, one who seemingly puts everything he has into his movies.

In American Made trailer, Tom Cruise takes the highway into a different danger zone

In recent years, Tom Cruise has seemingly been content to settle into being an action star. He’s done Mission: Impossible movies and Jack Reacher films, with others like Oblivion and Edge of Tomorrow mixed in. That’s not to criticize Cruise for those choices.

Tom Cruise confirms Top Gun 2 will happen, leading us all into a zone of danger

I feel the need…the need for a sequel. 31 years after Top Gun came out, there’s been a lot of talk about a potential follow-up, but not a ton of official follow-through. That changed Tuesday, with Tom Cruise going on an Australian morning talk show (yes, it’s already Wednesday there) and confirming that there will be a sequel, he’ll be involved, and filming will begin in...
