With Jack Reacher: Never Go Back coming out tomorrow, Rotten Tomatoes has rounded up Tom Cruise’s 10 highest rated movies on the site. Here they are:
1. Risky Business—96%

3. Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation—93%
4. Edge Of Tomorrow—91%
5. Minority Report—90%

8. The Color Of Money—90%
10. Magnolia—84%October 20, 2016 at 4:52 pm #1201937530
The ranking is ridiculous. #9 and #10 are much better than the rest of the list.October 20, 2016 at 5:05 pm #1201937531
I would argue his 10 best films are…
2. Minority Report
3. Risky Business
4. Mission: Impossible
5. Interview with the Vampire
6. Eyes Wide Shut
7. Mission: Impossible III
8. Losin’ It
10. Top Gun

Magnolia is the best Tom Cruise MOVIE, whereas Collateral is the best TOM CRUISE movie, if you know what I mean. 😉October 20, 2016 at 7:48 pm #1201937565
Just realized Eyes Wide Shut is not even in this pathetic top 10. Rotten Tomatoes is a joke.October 20, 2016 at 7:58 pm #1201937570
Rotten Tomatoes is based on the percentage of people who liked it. If 90% of people liked a movie okay, it gets a 90%. If 80% LOVED a movie and 20% didn’t like it very much, it gets an 80%, even if it’s a better movie. So Rotten Tomatoes is good for measuring how many liked it, but not a good percentage of how good a movie is seen.
I will agree that the most recent two Mission Impossible movies are the best of the series and some of the best of Tom Cruise. They should probably be lower on this list, but I think they should be on here.June 8, 2017 at 2:43 pm #1202114839
With The Mummy coming out tomorrow, Rotten Tomatoes has once again posted this list, and it’s still exactly the same. However, with a current 21% score, The Mummy ranks among Cruises’s worst-reviewed films on the site. However, it’s not the absolute worst. That dishonor goes to Cocktail, which has a measly score of 5%June 8, 2017 at 3:19 pm #1202114910
I read that already The Mummy has the biggest box office opening of all time in South Korea after a Train to Busan, Tom Cruise really is the biggest international movie star of our generation and this will still make a profit regardless of Rotten Tomatoe score.June 8, 2017 at 5:36 pm #1202114964
The question is, will it make enough money to continue this new Dark Universe?June 9, 2017 at 5:44 am #1202115412
It’s a tough sell. None of these films will fare well domestically but, like The Mummy, should prove hits overseas. The nostalgia’s just not there anymore for the old Universal monster flicks and I’m not sure how/why the studio doesn’t realize that.

My fav from him is “Coctail” ironically lol. That and Top GunJune 9, 2017 at 6:19 am #1202115466
As a Tom Cruise ultrastan I appreciate this. Though Top Gun only having a 56% on Rotten Tomatoes is a SCAM.
Unsurprised to see the last two M:I movies on here, they were excellent. The second one was the only really lousy one so I’m surprised the first and third have such comparatively low scores on RT. But all in all I think this is a solid top 10. Even though, y’know, scam.
