Edge of Tomorrow (2014) – Minority Report (2002) – Oblivion (2013)
These 3 Sci-fi action classics definitely belong to Tom Cruise must – see movies with Edge of Tomorrow hitting the top of the list! Edge of Tomorrow was the most anticipated movie to get a sequel or a trilogy because of its well-crafted action originality and flawless directing! People love loops and when you put Tom Cruise with Emily Blunt side by side, we have a winner!
On the other hand, Oblivion comes close enough with an interesting plot where a veteran assigned to extract Earth’s remaining resources begins to question what he knows about his mission and himself.
Lastly, Minority report is a ”future” movie where a special police unit is able to arrest murderers before they commit their crimes, an officer from that unit is himself accused of a future murder.
A Few Good Men (1992) – Born on the Fourth of July (1989) – The Last Samurai (2003)
These are some serious movies about pride, values, and Respect! I have goosebumps with these movies and so will you. So many quotes, so many emotions and so many emotional scenes about self-respect, about wars, about your country, justice and the truth!
Some of these take place in wars, others outside of wars and some in the middle of the same action they created in life! Now, I won’t spoil anything but I’d like to quote a few lines:
‘ I didn’t dismiss you. Do you want answers? I want the truth! You can’t handle the truth!!!‘
‘ Ten Hut! There is an officer on deck!‘
I honestly cry with that…
Jerry Maguire (1996) -Vanilla Sky (2001) – Cocktail (1988) – Knight and Day (2010)
Tom Cruise didn’t hesitate to dive into the romance territory and came out a true winner! He starred in many different romantic stories that differ from the know stereotypes. So let’s start!
Jerry Maguire (1996) is a highly recommended movie if you want a portrait of how you change your life if you are tired of being fake and miserable. You have to pursue happiness in life and act on that.
Cocktail (1988) is a calm movie, more down-to-earth about relationships in general. It is a good and entertaining story about going after your talent, your job, your love and your true friends… But as in real life, not everything is nice and easy…
Vanilla Sky (2001) is a masterpiece. A hidden gem with a stunning performance from Tom Cruise, with plot twists, deep emotions and thrilling transition throughout his story… I won’t spoil more…
Knight and day (2010) is just an entertaining romance but combined with some cool action side by side with Cameron Diaz!
Rain Man (1988) – Top Gun (1986) – Jack Reacher (2012) – War of the Worlds (2005)
4 Oscars don’t lie. So you know Rain Man (1988) is a serious movie with a unique performance by Dustin Hoffman as a savant brother next to Tom Cruise. Two brothers get back together facing the world and their own personal problems.
Well, Top Gun (1986) might be one of the greatest classics judging by its cast, its soundtracks, its story and character portrayal! No need to explain anything… The sequel is on its way and it will take our breath away, once again… |
Jack Reacher movies are one of the most satisfying and entertaining action movies from the last decade. War of the Worlds (2005) on the other hand, might not please you with its story but it is certainly a great effort of an alien invading story that shows survival, destruction, reason and some questions… A bold move from Cruise that got rewarded!
Now, I know what you’re gonna say… Where are the Mission Impossible movies, or this or that… So here are some honorable mentions for your personal taste because they are good too but for some of you might be amazing!
1) Mission Impossible movies ( 1996 – 2018)
2) Collateral (2004)
3) Eyes Wide Shut (1999)
4) Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994)
5) Valkyrie (2008)
Generally speaking, almost every single Tom Cruise movie is awesome! After you see our suggestions, you can proceed and watch them all 🙂
