Tom Cruise's unlucky Jack Reacher 2 movie

Post by AngryGayPope » Sat Oct 31, 2015 7:32 pm

First a plane crashed killing two crew members. Now a trailer right next to Tom Cruise's burst into flame on the Louisiana set.

From photographs I've seen of him lately Tom Cruise's million dollar looks have been marked down to a dollar-ninety-eight.

Tom is an aging brute as he maims and kills people in Jack Reacher 2 trailer.* The trailer hints at a daughter Jack never knew about.

My comment: If they film a father-daughter reunion, won't that remind fans that Tom won't reunite with Suri?

Is Tom channeling his abusive, neglectful Mapother father? The thuggish up-close fist-punching in the Jack Reacher movie seems deeply ingrained, and Tom has abandoned Suri, like his Mapother father abandoned Tom and his sisters.

It underscores that bad behavior can continue through the generations. Some can overcome early childhood abuse and become good spouses and parents in this challenging world, but Scientology doesn't seem to have helped Tom with Suri.

I had avoided this trailer but I had to sit through it at the movie theater. In Scientology terminology it looked to me like the Jack Reacher character was doing a major service facsimile dramatization. The trailer had nothing on what the movie is about, what the stakes are or anything else story related.

We continue to dare to compare.

Budgets
Boo! A Madea Halloween: $20 million
Jack Reacher: Never Go Back: $60 million

Is it just me or is that a relatively low budget for a Tom Cruise movie?

I did a time line analysis and a financial spread sheet on Tom Cruise's movie career. It looks to me that, right now, he is as successful as he ever was with his movie career. The latest Jack Reacher movie will likely do very well for him. In addition to that he currently has five movies in the works. In his movie career, in Scientology parlance, Tom is up stat.

However the reports of his real estate activities indicate he is doing a danger condition. If that is the case then Tom, the Scientologist, either perceives that he is down stat or some high level master at arms has assigned him a condition that indicates down statistics. Alternately he is being manipulated by the organization and it may well be to his detriment. I can only speculate.

It takes years to make these action movies, so watch out for more plastic surgery. He'll play the hero while neglecting his daughter.

My family member who got me out who has never been involved in Scientology sorted this out for me. Here's their take.

Katie Holmes has been declared a suppressive person for not only leaving Tom but for publicly leaving Scientology. Publicly leaving Scientology is a high crime and it will get the person who does it declared suppressive. Suri is connected to a suppressive person, Katie Holmes, and is staying with her. That makes Suri Cruise a suppressive person and Scientology has probably declared her as such. Never mind that she is just a child. Scientology treats children as small adults, because, you know, the thetan knows, or something. So for Tom to stay in good standing with the so called church he has to disconnect from Katie and Suri. Apparently, he has done that.

Oh, the schadenfreude. Nevertheless I'm fairly sure Tom isn't hurting at all.
