    Not great, but certainly good. Cruise needed that.

  4. First, take a big step back... and literally, FUCK YOUR OWN FACE! I don't know what kind of pan-pacific bullshit power play you're trying to pull here, but Asia Jack is my territory. So whatever you're thinking, you'd better think again! Otherwise I'm gonna have to head down there and I will rain down in a Godly fucking firestorm upon you! You're gonna have to call the fucking United Nations and get a fucking binding resolution to keep me from fucking destroying you. I'm talking about a scorched earth, motherfucker! I will massacre you! I WILL FUCK YOU UP!

    (Calmly) Find out who that was.

    I fucking loved this movie. From Alpa Chino hawking 'Booty Sweat' all the way through Tom Cruise dancing to Ludacris, it was friggin' hysterical.

    Oh, and part of the brilliance that was Robert Downey's performance was his line, "I don't break character until I finish the DVD commentary," and then he did just that, playing Lincoln Osiris in the commentary.

    If not for Ledger playing the Joker, I would have wanted Downey to win best supporting actor. An outstanding performance and one helluva year for him, with Thunder coming on the heels of Iron Man.

    Absolutely.

    Line of the movie, to me:

    "What do YOU mean, 'you people'?"

    I really wanted to love this movie based on what I had heard, but it just didn't do it for me. I thought there were a few really fun bits, but as a whole it didn't keep my attention and dragged on too long in my opinion.

    I just like that Shockey wasn't willing to wait until the end of a movie he was watching to get a sense from other people whether it was good or not. So often, if I'm unsure during a movie, I'll have to wait until after the movie's over to ask other people if the movie's good or not.

    I take Cruise far less seriously in anything he does after seeing him in this movie. That's a good thing.
