Even though Cruise has Magnolia and Vanilla Sky (I love both of those films, they’re outstanding), Nicole Kidman has Rabbit Hole, The Hours, To Die For, Stoker, The Others… I went with her.December 29, 2014 at 8:19 am #170462
Both have amazing filmographies. But Kidman makes art films. And I love her to pieces. My vote goes to the woman who has me watching films like Birth (2004) and Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus (2006).December 29, 2014 at 9:04 am #170463
Kidman but Tom is in one of my fav movies ever (Cocktail)December 29, 2014 at 11:25 am #170464
Kidman is definitely a lot more adventurous, at least these days, but Cruise has given a lot of great performances in some spectacular films as well, both of the artsy and blockbuster kind. Along with those already mentioned at the top, there’s Born on the Fourth of July, Rain Man, Collateral, and Edge of Tomorrow.
I think Nicole has more emotional range, but Cruise’s films are probably the ones I’d probably revisit more often.December 29, 2014 at 1:56 pm #170465
They both have amazing filmographies in their own right. Cruise has quite the resume of mainstream films while Kidman has quite an accomplished list of smaller-scale films. But I ended up going with Kidman.December 29, 2014 at 2:34 pm #170466

Same Vin. But I voted for him as well; not so much because of his filmography, which I’ve loved since Risky Business,( btw Nicole would have had a more difficult time nursing a filmography alone), but because he is soooo persecuted, over nothing. Over the truth, which nobody likes really. Lol.
Also, over the crap he takes over his religious beliefs. Last time I checked, it is no less bizarre and actually makes some sense, comparatively speaking.
There. So I said it.December 29, 2014 at 6:04 pm #170467
Kidman takes on a lot of interesting roles in interesting movies, but they frequently don’t pan out as actually good.
I put Cruise as an actor in the same boat as Brad Pitt. He can be really good when he’s playing extroverted/over the top characters. But he’s often charmless and/or contrived when he’s asked to take it down a notch. His filmography is the superior one.
