ReaverZ: Dancis_Frake: Seriously?
This age gap issue is a Tom Cruise thing?

More of trying to get studios to stop with it. Society has sort of moved on or realizing and admitting this is creepy. The age gap in real life is becoming more of a thing with people being 5 years apart a big difference (this is my parents who have a 6 year gap commenting).

Hugh Heffners transition from ladies man to creepy grandpa.


So what are older people to do?

Idontlikemoose: This problem isn't so much about Tom Cruise as how stars aren't stars anymore.  Very few actors by being on a marquee are going to draw people to a movie unlike 20 years ago.


I see "Reality Stars" and "Internet Famous" and all those "Celebrities that are famous for being famous* " as having diluted what a "Celebrity" is. You don't have to possess any talent to become 'Famous' anymore. Like saying a word over and over until it sounds nonsensical. Celebrity is now simply getting as many people to talk about you good or bad as long as your "Name" is out there.

*No talent, stick their faces near anyone to get buzz, a Kardashian basically.

Last Samurai was the turning point for me and my friends. White savior and how he taked about "samurai" and the martial arts really ticked us off.

/ he needs to move behind the camera and stay there for a bit. Foster new actors to take up the roles,

Wut?

There was no "white savior" in The Last Samurai.  At best there was "White outsider observer to the last gasp of a dying culture"

/Spoiler alert:
//The titular Last Samurai was Ken Watanabe's character.

Fark has a hard time understanding this.


No, it wasn't. It was the dedemption of drunk Cruise with the backdrop of Wanatanbe being cool

I remember when we were starting to say the same thing about Bruce Jenner, and look what happened.


Yeah, how's he doing these days?

Yes, the story was of Cruise and his redemption, because he was the observer character.  The movie follows his journey.  We see the story of the last samurai as it intersected with his own.  Yes, Cruise put on a suit of armour and joined in the battle, but he never became samurai himself.

That would be like me saying I've become a Knight because I hung out with a dude who followed the Chivalric code for a few days and then put on a suit of full plate.
