  1. I have been subscribed to you for years, and I have no clue where it all started. I generally enjoy your posts though.

    But this is egregious. How could you possibly pick “Top Gun” or “Vanilla Sky” over “A Few Good Men”?

  2. I loved A Few Good Men and think it’s a great film … but really it’s just Jack Nicholson’s monologue in the court room that makes the movie, y’know?

  3. Tom Cruise picked Born on 4th July to adverse his role in a previous film which supported war.

  4. A Few Good Men was one of his best rolls. Vanilla Sky is mind numbingly terrible. I would put Mission Impossible or Tropic Thunder or Interview with a Vampire up there before Vanilla Sky.

A few years ago I was trying to determine what cocktails I could make with the alcohol I had at home. I searched the App Store but couldn't find an app that would let me do that, so I built one.
