Phoebe is back to share some fun Tom Cruise trivia with me & we get a little bit manic (like, I can barely string my sentences together, oops lol). Join us as we pay out on Robert Downey Jr, Fast & the Furious 9, Tenet, Christopher Nolan & Idris Elba's poor film role choices. We also discuss what we'd let Disney do with our likenesses after we die,…
 
Phoebe & I wrap up our review of American Made by making fun of it & the director Doug Liman a bunch. We also cover the complete lack of vice in a film that's literally about smuggling drugs into the US during the 80s, shoehorning in references to US presidents for no good reason, how poorly the women fare in this story & how Tom Cruise is a big ne…
 
I've talked a lot about how Tom Cruise almost exclusively picks action movies to star in these days but there has been one exception; this movie! I am joined by Phoebe to discuss how little we actually know about 80s North/Central American history, how much we dislike seeing Tom doing sex scenes, Hollywood versions of true stories, plus we randomly…
 
In the 2nd half of my review with Ari, we cover the famous sword fighting scene & the big, final battle, fumbling out way through facts & history! Things also get emotional when we discuss perfect cherry blossoms & Ken Watanabe's beautiful eyes.Find Ari on instagram: www.instagram.com/maxcalifornia_Find my social media via my website: www.tomcruise…
 
After a bit of a break, I'm back to review an absolute banger of a film with Ari! This film cops a lot of flack as people assume Tom Cruise is the titular last Samurai (hint: he's not) which is a bummer because it's really bloody good! Join us as we discuss which Samurai we're crushing on, watching Tom Cruise get a face full of mud, how fkd the pat…
 
Just a quick update about the podcast & why there hasn't been a new episode for a little while. Basically, I'm still here & excited to finish reviewing Tom Cruise's filmography but with so few films left to do, it's taking a little bit longer to organise recording new episodes!I also divulge my plans for the podcast once I've gotten through his fil…
 
Peter is back to chat about the movies we watched as kids because our mum's fancied one of the starring actors as well as some of the films we saw when we were perhaps a bit too young for them.The films we specifically discussed, for anyone who might want to check them out, were:Top SecretReal GeniusThunderheartWillowPoint BreakMy Own Private Idaho…
 
Peter is back to finish off Tropic Thunder, a movie that could literally only exist in 2008. Join as we continue to mock Justin Theroux's writing credits, continually forget that jack Black was even in this film, shudder when they kick the ableism up another notch, debate which characters we're married to & discuss Tom Cruise's dancing abilities at…
 
It's time to review one of the least Tom Cruisey films of his filmography, a film that is pretty controversial for a variety of reasons but actually improved Tom's career significantly by proving he doesn't always take himself seriously. I am joined by Peter where we discuss the various offensive elements in this film from Blackface, ableist slurs,…
 
I am back with Andrew to finish our review of War of the Worlds where we discuss the divisive ending, why we think the movie didn't do super well (hint: it involves a couch) & why WE think this movie rules before we deviate into discussing our favourite Tom Cruise movies, why we love Tom as an actor/person, our thoughts on Scientology & so much mor…
 
In a shock twist, this week I am reviewing a movie that my special guest has already seen! I am joined by self-confessed Tomoisseur Andrew who also absolutely bloody loves this movie & is helping me defend it against what we believe to be unfair criticisms of this sci fi masterpiece. We talk a lot about bad dad's, screaming children, cool alien sou…
 
Ben is back to finish off our review of The Color of Money where there's a big shift in the final third of the film, with the mentor & the protégé parting ways. Join us as we discuss clumsy tantrums, training montages, sweater vests, US winters & dropping the word balabushka into everyday conversations.Find Ben on twitter @thomas_violence or via th…
 
Did you know Tom Cruise was in a Martin Scorsese movie? Not only that, but a movie about pool? And that it's really bloody good? It sounds preposterous but I promise it's true! Co-starring the incredible Paul Newman, it's about the seedy world of pool hustling. Join Ben McLeay & I as we discuss the rugged sex appeal of Paul Newman, that wonderful V…
 
Imagine if you will, a world where Tom Cruise & Tom Hanks had gotten each other films roles! How many would have worked & how many would have been ruined? Heather & I discuss which films could have had the other Tom in them & which movies would have been so bad they're good with a Tom swap (hunt: Magnolia). Listen to Heather's podcast Online Moll P…
 
Well it had to happen, Tom Cruise had to star in a complete dud eventually. Directed by Robert Redford & co-starring Meryl Streep this is an absolute yawn fest about how the War on Terror sucks ass, starring Tom as a slimy Republican senator. Join Heather & I as we do our best to make this snooze fest kinda interesting by dissing it constantly? Loo…
 
We're back in 2054 to finish our review of 'Minority Report' where we find out whether or not the pre-cogs were right about John being a killer or if there was a redemptive minority report after all. Join Cam & I as we discuss eye transplants, creepy metal spiders, how much Tom Cruise loves holding his breath, Spielbergian plot devices & plenty mor…

Dave Callan joins me again to discuss whether or not we think Tom Cruise can do comedy. Tom isn't particularly well known for his comedic performances but he has dabbled in it from time to time, most notably in his portrayal of Les Grossman in 'Tropic Thunder'. We discuss the types of comedy we think he could do well & other roles he's played that …
 
You're a corker! I am joined by Dave Callan this week to review the Ron Howard film from 1992 'Far and Away' which was essentially just an excuse for Tom Cruise & his new wife Nicole Kidman to throw each other lusty looks constantly. It's full of bad Irish accents, continuity errors, extremely misplaced comedy & a hilarious incident involving a pen…
 
Allison is back to finish our review of Born on the Fourth of July where this time we delve into the importance of sex work, disability access, how US politics has changed between the late 60s and now and how great it is to hear Tom Cruise scream "BIG ERECT PENIS". We also cover some trivia about the film including a plan to actually paralyse Tom??…
 
We're back with another of Tom Cruise's war films, but this one is distinctly anti-war this time. Based on the real life story of paralysed Vietnam war vet Ron Kovic, we follow a patriotic young man's journey into becoming a famous anti-war activist. Join Allison & I as we get deep on the problems with war, patriotism, the lack of care available to…
 
After reviewing 'All The Right Moves', Bryn and I tried to imagine what came next for his character Stef and came up with the concept of a Tom Cruise Shared Universe! Join us as we haphazardly try to link as many Tom Cruise films together as possible to create new timelines that inevitably turn him into either Ethan Hunt or a vampire.Find my social…
 
We're popping back to the 80s for a very early Tom Cruise film that hasn't stood the test of time quite as well as some of his other classics. Bryn & I delve into the wild world of high school football, hormones, shitty home towns & excessive synths. Did we learn any lessons along the way? Not really. Did we have a lot of laughs though? We sure did…
 
In our stunning conclusion of A Few Good Men, Ginger & I cover the court case in great detail, tripping over the delivery of the famous lines from the iconic Jack Nicholson scenes. We continue our discussion on how messed up military culture is, why it was important for Demi Moore's character to be female in a sea of angry white men, Tom Cruise's t…
 
YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH! Yep it's time for that movie with the very famous line that has been parodied at least 10,000 times in pop culture. Ginger joins me to discuss Aaron Sorkin's 1st screenplay that is honestly way better than it has any right to be considering it's a very serious military legal drama. Please note: We stuff up military & leg…
 
If you enjoyed the discussion about how homoerotic Top Gun was then you're probably going to like this minisode!

If ever there was a role that Tom Cruise absolutely smashed, defying all expectations as a Hollywood mega star, it has to be 1994's Interview with the Vampire. I am joined by Ava who is well versed in vampire lore, to discuss this dramatic, visually pleasing and often homoerotic film co-starring Brad Pitt and Kirstin Dunst. Join us as we cover vamp…

Taaaake my breath awaaaayyyyyy! Yes folks, we're finally reviewing the film from which my title music comes from; Top Gun! I am joined by Josie who had never seen this giant advert for the military before & was as delighted as I am by the excessively sweaty naked man content! Join us as we delve into the world of FIGHTERTOWN, USA where women are sc…
 
Because I couldn't quite let Mission: Impossible go, here is one final minisode dedicated to the franchise before I finally move on.

Back in the year 2000, Metallica's song "I Disappear" was to feature on the M:I 2 soundtrack but months before it was due to be released, radio stations were already playing it. And thus the epic law suit of Metallica vs Napster, the early P2P program, made history. Jimmy & I discuss this fascinating story of the court case that divided the music i…
 
It's time for part 2 of my in depth discussion of M:I Rogue Nation with Jimmy! There are high speed chases with surprising amount of comedy, motorcycle crashes, deception, Benji Bombs, masks and romance?! Join us as we finish off this wonderful movie together and start getting excited for Fallout!Find Jimmy on Twitter @Roleplay_James or his website…
 
It's time for the incredible 5th installment of the M:I series and this time I'm joined by Jimmy who helps me do a deep dive into this film! From the mind boggling stunts involving airplanes, free diving, opera theaters and a big metal pole, we go through the 1st half of the film with a fine tooth comb, discussing how the series has changed since i…
 
After reviewing M:I Ghost Protocol with me, Chloe asked me for a list of action movies she should watch, which we then made into a podcast episode coz why not? This list is FAR from comprehensive, I just focus on my favourites which are predominantly American because I didn't want to overwhelm everyone by getting into the world of, say, martial art…
 
Chloe is back to finish reviewing the very fine, very action paced Ghost Protocol, the 4th film in the M:I series.

Mission Impossible is back, baby! After a short break between the M:I films, I am joined by Chloe to discuss the 4th film in the franchise; Ghost Protocol. Arguably one of the best M:I films with one of the most iconic stunts (ie. Tom Cruise scaling the tallest building in the world), this film is HUGE. Join us as we discuss the first half of the f…
 
Join Benjamin and I as we delve into the fascinating story of the Guillermo del Toro/Tom Cruise/James Cameron Lovecraftian film that never happened. It would have been a big budget, R rated horror film about an ancient civilisation that essentially created human life as we know it with sentient black goo... umm yep, Prometheus was absolutely the ma…
 
This week I am rejoined by my husband Benjamin because I realised he had never seen the 1983 classic 'The Outsiders'! Based on a book many teenagers read in high school (myself included), it's a classic tale of the poor underdog kids vs the horrible rich kids. Join us as we discuss a film that features minimal Tom Cruise but makes up for it with pl…
 
Lauren is back for a minisode where we discuss the time she purchased Tom cruise hentai manga for me while in Japan. We discuss the different comics she bought, what hentai is (for those not in the know), Japan's love of self-published fan fic & end on some exciting Tom Cruise news!

Because we're all in isolation, I decided to pause my M:I series for a short while & have brought back former guest Lauren to discuss Collateral! Join us as we discuss the 1st half of the film, including how hot & awful Tom Cruise is, how wholesome Jamie Foxx is, the ethics of being a hit man & a whole bunch of other films vaguely related to Collat…

We're back to finish off the 3rd installment of the Mission Impossible series! The action keeps getting bigger, the villain badder, the running faster & the teeth whiter. Taylor & I have a blast recounting the incredible bridge scene to the final scene where Ethan Hunt does what he does best (kills the bad guy, runs heaps... you know the drill). An…
 
Let's wash the bitter taste on M:I 2 out of our mouths by blasting our way into Mission Impossible 3!

I'm joined by Taylor who didn't even know there were more than two M:I films! Join us as…
 
If you thought we were mean to the movie in part 1, just wait for the 2nd half! Join Erin & I as we tear apart absolutely everything this film has to offer, from the absurd use of masks (where the hell do they all come from), the amount of Ford Falcon's, the hilarious final fight scene & even the accompanying music video by Metallica!
