Music, Movies, TV – An Insider’s Perspective

JUST A THOUGHT…..On Tom Cruise Movies

As we approach the long holiday weekend some of us will be staying home or enjoying our local parks and beaches. If we are at home we will probably fire up the grill, put some drinks on ice and break out the summer tunes. If you are one of those people that redecorated or redesigned your back yard, your man-cave or your she-shed during the pandemic, you may be hosting a movie night. Around my neighborhood I see a lot of those BIG “blow-up” movie screens for those back yard summer parties and movie nights under the stars.

So, while we are all still ridin’ high after seeing “Top Gun Maverick” in the theater…..I want to remind you of the GREAT Tom Cruise movies that you may want to grab for your summer bash at home. And a few of them are perfect for the JULY 4th holiday.

Kick off your summer with a few of Tom’s BIGGEST BLOCKBUSTER HITS.

    I saw this and really enjoyed it. When I posted I got a few comments on how people would never pay for any movie with Cruise in it because of his Scientology religious beliefs, which I understand fully.

    Would love to see your readers thoughts about this and Scientology.

      Although that would be interesting to know, I don’t want to delve too much into my readers beliefs about politics or what they feel is their religion. I do understand people not wanting to support his movies. I have yet to see his new film too. I am curious about it with all of the hype of it being great. Just not a lot of time these days so I am picky about my entertainment choices. I appreciate you reading my BLOG
