Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise represent strong ideologies. I know where you think I’m going with this. Hold on a second.
I won’t discuss Scientology although the subject matter might generate considerable attention for me and controversy. The ideologies I’m referring to are their mentalities and philosophies about approaching acting and filmmaking. I consider Tom Hanks to be the best actor. And I believe Tom Cruise is the best movie star.
I call this phenomenon Tom-Tom. Tom-Tom is a popular navigation tool aka GPS. This device pinpoints location and directs drivers to destinations. Without question, Tom-Tom’s creator created one of technology’s greatest breakthroughs.
Because of satellites, software, and advanced mappings, we arrive at point B more precisely. Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise combine their talents and efforts to create Hollywood’s own Tom-Tom. Their movies have long influenced the entertainment business like no others.
In a sense, they control Hollywood’s current with their well-polished wind turbines and fancy solar panels, which brings me to my question. How much energy can two people generate?

Show Tom Cruise more respect for his acting ability. In order to perform at the peak, one needs peak skills. What is the Mission Impossible movie franchise without the franchise player? The notion that a movie star can’t be an actor and vice versa is false. Cruise should have won an Oscar because the actor is undeniably great.
Also, ask a Tom Hanks fan if she considers the Forrest Gump actor to be a movie star. I’m here to say you can get a taste of the best of both worlds. It’s been proven that life is full of possibilities. Always ask what if…? because you’re unlimited when passion takes over.
I respect Hanks and Cruise because they navigate their waters like Christopher Columbus. Both men command their ships like captains. Here’s a great segue.
Tom Hanks’ performance in Captain Phillips was one for the ages. How does he keep getting better with every film? What director doesn’t fantasize about casting the Castaway?
Moreover, Vanilla Sky remains one of my favorite movies. I wonder if Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz would ever tie the knot. I could watch Vanilla Sky everyday because of the onscreen relationship between Cruise and Diaz.
In closing, Tom-Tom controls Hollywood. All films schools (worth their tuition) should study Tom Hanks and Tom Cruise. What is more, Tom-Tom movies are worth their prices of admissions.
