As much as I dislike reading about Tom Cruise's personal life, I really like the MISSION IMPOSSIBLE movies. Tom (my Tom) and I went to the most recent one (numero cinco) last Saturday night, and I thought it was the best of the series.
Cruise looks terrific at sixty-one. No easy feat. Too much face work looks terrible, and at the same time we don't want him to look sixty-one either. He's allowed for a little aging around the eyes but there's no bagginess anywhere. And he must work out hours a day to have that musculature.
The script was smart, tense and humorous. And I liked the addition of Alec Baldwin as head of the CIA. Now that I think about it, I like most Tom Cruise movies. I just don't like Tom Cruise.
Remember when Robert Redford had his eyes done? Terrible! I think I noticed it in THE CLEARING, which I liked. They look more normal now. Gravity works its mysterious magic.
