Weirdo with Gizmos
Went to the Arc Light Theater in Hollywood this afternoon to see "Mission Impossible: III."
It's an interesting story, the action scenes are thrilling and frequent and Phillip Seymour Hoffman makes for a particularly creepy villain.
But it's hard to get past Tom Cruise and all the publicity surrounding his life these days. And his acting has become a caricature of itself.
It used to be when I watched a movie with him in it I just saw Tom Cruise, not the character he was playing. But now I see Ben Stiller DOING Tom Cruise DOING a character. I think Ben's Cruise is better than Tom's.
But the theme song still is the best ever!
