The Weekly Review: June 27 – July 3

Gibson1        Cruise1

 

How many real “movie stars” do we have left?  Meryl Streep and Jack Nicholson are superb actors, but are they really old-school movie stars?  I would argue that we have about four super-duper, wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am movie stars:  Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Julia Roberts, and Mel Gibson. 

If I was Hanks or Roberts, I would take one look at the box office for Cruise’s latest film, and I would take another look at what’s going on with Gibson and … I’d go back to bed.

Typo of the Week:

A CNN anchor was reporting about a mishap in space involving the International Space Station, and a crawl came across the bottom of the screen:  “… resupply ship flew passed space station …”

I went back to bed.

    I heart Tom Hanks! He will never do any wrong in the eyes of the media. All those actors should take notes and watch him. Tom Cruise is a weirdo. Meryl is awesome. Mel is psycho. Julia is cool but needs to do better movies. Done.
